  • Grave dressing Stage
  • The break-up is now public. Partners seek support from others outside of the relationship. Friends will now act differently about the partner: some will provide reassurance, others will be judgmental and blame the other person. Some friends will push the relationship towards break-up, others try to help and repair it.
  •  Yeah, you're way better off without him
  • Babes you don't need him
