An Expert's Break-Up Survival: How to Get Over Being Dumped

May 26, 2015 2 min read

Whether you have ever broken up with someone, or had to be the dumpee, or you've played both roles in the game of love, breaking up sucks. It really sucks no matter what angle you're coming from. If you have been dumped, you know the inevitable stages. Perhaps he dumped you at dinner, or after a wildly fun weekend, or over Facebook messenger because he was too big of a chicken to do it himself. First, you feel shock and rage. You're livid. Then you settle into thinking, "I'm hot and single now! Up at me world!" But then you go out for a night with your girls and see the dating pool swimming with icky, awkward and sweaty weirdos. You find yourself locked in the comfort of your apartment eating ice cream and watching Channing Tatum movies. I've painted a beautiful picture, haven't I? Well if you've checked into the Heart Break Hotel, here are some helpful tips to mentally and emotionally surviving: 1) Disconnect  That means unfollow, delete his number, get every shred of him out of your life. With these things gone, you won't be tempted to creep, and you certainly won't be tempted to message. Remove his friends too. You don't want to see one of them post an Instagram picture of him out partying with two hot girls while you're feeling low. The less you see of him now, the less likely you will look for him later. Even after a lot of time has passed, and you may just think "Oh, maybe I'll see what *break up douche* is up to..." But if he's not on your mind now, he won't come across it later. 2) Alone Time  Be with your supportive friends and family, but make time to be alone with your thoughts as well. Always being distracted will hinder your capability to move on and deal with your emotions. The pain must be felt, in order to release it. 3) Don't "Hook-Up" With Your Ex. Ever.  It's not casual, it's not meaningless. There will be no simple, no strings attached platonic sexual relationship. If you have loved him, hooking up with him is torture to yourself. It's inflicting the pain all over again, even if years have passed. 4) Rebounds Will Always Be Rebounds If your still hurting, then you're not ready to be in another serious relationship. A rebound guy is equivalent to stress eating ice cream, you're replacing the sadness with a good, entertaining and distracting feeling. But it's all just empty calories... You're not being honest with yourself and confronting your hurt. Once you are healed, you can move on to a healthy new relationship. Don't put too much pressure on yourself to find someone right away, focus on you and reconnect with yourself. Do you have some break-up horror stories to share?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
