How should YOU handle a breakup?
Kristin Cavallari never seemed like the type to get dumped, but apparently it happens to everyone at some point in their lives. The Hills starlet and fiance Jay Cutler called off their engagement just over a week ago. Never one to let grass grow under her feet, the 24-year-old reality star was out partying less than a week after the split, flirting with a throng of men. Is she handling her breakup the right way?
After a whirlwind eight-month courtship, Kristin and the Chicago Bears player got engaged in April. Despite having had their engagement party just over a week ago, 28-year-old Jay apparently got cold feet and decided he didn’t want to be married anymore and dumped KC unexpectedly.
Although she’s shocked, hurt and confused, the sassy blonde star refused to sit home sulking and crying, and joined pals Nicky Hilton and Alessandra Ambrosio for a night of partying at LA hotspot The Beverly July 23.
Eyewitnesses say that certainly didn’t seem to be unhappy, and that she was totally enjoying the glow of male admiration. “Nicky and Kristin were dancing on the banquet of their VIP table,” a source told HollywoodLife.com, adding, “Kristin was smiling and in great spirits. She didn’t hesitate at all when guys came up trying to hit on her. She loved the attention!”
But is the newly single starlet making a smart decision? Should she be taking time to heal and recover from such a shocking, unexpected split?
Here’s the thing: breakups suck. It’s never a good thing to be hurt so badly by someone you’ve loved — and Kristin’s situation sounds like my worst nightmare. Can YOU imagine just having had your happy engagement party only to have your fiance call it off days later out of the blue?
In that respect, I think Kristin should do whatever Kristin needs to do to get over Chicago’s quarterback. Everyone handles breakups their own way. Some go out and find a rebound relationship. Some sit at home looking at Facebook photos of their ex. Some delete their ex from Facebook. Some party with friends and use alcohol as a lubricant to dull the pain. Some surround themselves with good friends, and some just want to be alone.
Do whatever is right for you. No one can tell you what you should and shouldn’t be doing during a breakup. It’s your pain and, therefore, your right to choose how you handle it.
