3 Great advice books for breaking-up and getting over breakups

Breaking up just isn't easy. You're always tempted to stay and work it out for the kids. Ok, I don't have kids. But still the temptation is there for the future children you've secretly named in your head. Oooh, and that fuschia wedding bouquet arrangement just is not going to look the same in the hands of a groom-less bride.

Scared? Puhleeeze, don't act like you're not human. I'm not saying I went overboard and picked out their colleges (Harvard and Yale - the little one is a born sailor and would like to remain in Florida to be close to the water).

Where was I? Breaking up. Sometimes, people break up and you just have to pick up the pieces. Avoid going crazy and taking revenge out on your friends with incessant wailing about his green eyes, or heaven forbid you are having another drink to drown out the memory of drunk dialing him the previous night to sing Brian McKnight's "back at one". Sometimes you have to be grown up, mature, friendly (of course I meant pretend to be friendly) and keep the peace. If you share friends don't make it harder on them by making them choose a side. You can't have everyone.

I don't think that anyone in their twenties ever really knows what's going on in the world of relationships. Sometimes we need help. Here are a couple of books that make all the difference. Full of advice and laughter to make this difficult time a whole lot easier to deal with.

1. The Go-Girl Guide : Surviving Your 20s with Savvy, Soul, and Style by Julia Bourland

2. He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo

3. It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken: The Smart Girl's Break-Up Buddy by Greg Behrendt and Amiira Ruotola-Behrendt
