The Ex-Boyfriend Letters


So, this is the little suprise I’ve been saving for you guys: a new weekly feature on Skinny Dip!

(To anyone who has seen me over the past week, THIS is what has been keeping me up at night & giving me those lovely dark circles under my eyes)

Lately, I’ve had this overwhelming feeling like I have so much to say that I don’t even know where to begin.

Years ago, when I first started to have boy trouble (when I was 18 or 19) and I’d break up with someone, I would write them a letter. In these letters I would write about how the other person made me feel and discuss everything that was left unsaid. I never mailed these letters. They were just really therapeutic to write. I decided that writing letters again might be the perfect way to get some stuff off of my chest and introduce some new story-lines on the blog.

So, I am writing letters to all of the men from my past and posting them on Skinny Dip. All letters will be addressed anonymously (no names mentioned) and I will post a new one each week. EVERYONE is getting at least one letter (well, everyone worth mentioning). NO ONE IS SAFE.

Some of the letters will be funny, some will be angry, some will be sad, some will be steamy…and some might be a combination of all the above. I guess you’ll just have to read and find out!

So far, I’ve written 4 out of the 12-15 letters I have planned. Writing them has felt really good. I like to think of this whole process and an “emotional exfoliation” -sloughing off all the feelings I’ve bottled up to make room for new better stuff in my life. Hopefully you guys will enjoy reading about my flings, booty calls, dates and relationships gone wrong as much as I’ve enjoyed writing about them.

FIRST LETTER DROPS FRIDAY. Stay tuned.

(I also have another exciting announcement that I will reveal later tonight!)

Have any of you ever written someone a post break-up letter? What would you say to an ex if you could tell them anything?
