1.0 out of 5 stars depressing for the dumpee, May 4, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Chicken Soup for the Soul: Divorce and Recovery: 101 Stories about Surviving and Thriving after Divorce (Paperback)
The first story I could completely relate to. I thought this was going to be such a good book. Then the next few stories were "hip-hooray" stories about dumpers. If you're the dumpee, it's very depressing. I can't even go on and read the rest of this book, because each page seems to affirm how great it is to leave someone else who just doesn't measure up to your standards. If you're the person who somehow just didn't measure up, it hurts.

After sarcastically summing up the last few stories I read by talking to the ceiling in my lonely apartment and saying, "I'm so glad I left you--my life is so good now," I threw this book in the garbage.
