Do You Want to Be Alone After a Breakup?

Friends or Famine: Do You Want to Be Alone After a Breakup?

I'm hardly fit for human interaction in the first raw days after a breakup. I'm prone to crying in public and convincing myself, and everyone around me, that all would be well if I hadn't said that one thing three months ago. The only thing I find more unpleasant than myself is company. Happy people. People who slept last night. The people who don't have a roll of toilet paper on their nightstand because they ran out of tissues.

Yet two friends going through breakups right now want anything but to be alone. Friends are the distraction that keeps their thoughts from spiraling down and their outlook on the up.
