Tumblr for the last messages between exes is so, so real
Ever since Adele released “Hello,” we’ve all had exes on the brain. Even those of us in perfectly wonderful relationships (whether it be with another human, a cat, or our lovely selves) feel a tug at the heart strings at the sound of her haunting belt, mourning an ex that doesn’t even exist. In a way, thinking about relationships, the people we’ve loved, and the people we’re still trying to get over can be incredibly therapeutic.
If you’re in Adele haze and want to live vicariously through other people’s heartbreak, then you will love the Tumblr The Last Message Received. The blog collects screenshots of people’s final messages from loved ones, some former significant others or family members who passed away. Oh man, the range of sympathy, rage, sadness, and empathy is … [insert Adele belt here].
This Tumblr really shows how strange it can be to have your relationship documented through texts and social media. Technology can make things easier, but it can also make getting over someone much harder.
Prepare to get cathartic.
