What they did wrong and what you should do instead.

No matter how much people say they had a good break up, nothing is really ever good about having your heart broken. It's even worse for celebrities, with their broken hearts and bitter feelings splattered all over the news the next day. Just check out (and learn from) these couples you once shipped who have since sailed in separate seas... with not-so nice parting words!

  1. Harry Styles & Taylor Swift

    What they did: What do you get when two of the biggest pop stars break up? You get disses at awards shows, juicy interviews of he said-she said drama, and shady lyrics on their next albums! The breakup must've been that bad since their short-lived romance all the way back in 2012 still manages to be inspiration for new songs (see: 1989 album). What's worse is that both parties aren't even trying to be subtle about it!

    What you should do instead: Although we won't have international stages to vent out our feelings, bad mouthing your ex on Facebook is almost just as bad. Remember, this person used to be someone you cared for deeply so don't ruin their reputation just because it didn't work out with you guys. Learn to vent out in private, maybe over ice cream with some friends?

  2. Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez

    What they did: Some solid Jelena shippers might've abandoned ship after the nth breakup of this infamous duo. Although both only have nice things to say about each other post-split, their constant on again-off again journey just means they always part with unresolved issues. As much as our hearts are exhausted from hoping they finally make it this time, looks like Jelena eventually tired themselves out and moved on for real. Good for them!

    What you should do instead: Getting back together with an ex doesn't sound like a good idea because it usually isn't. The first time is understandable, but if you keep going back to the person who's hurting you, that's just unhealthy. Learn to take a step back and really understand why you keep running towards the fire instead of away from it.

  3. Kim Chiu & Gerald Anderson

    What they did: Before the KathNiels and JaDines of today, there was KimErald. Despite never confirming that they were together IRL, news of a third party (ehem, Bea Alonzo) caused the power couple to call it quits. But not before a presscon cryfest, intense interviews and even death threats!

    What you should do instead: Stay faithful, that’s it! You're in a relationship because you care about this person. You're not supposed to be the one to hurt them. If you feel that something isn't working between the two of you, be decent enough to cut all ties before starting a new thing with another person. Both parties deserve more than that.

  4. Jasmine Curtis-Smith & Sam Concepcion

    What they did: Our family will always want what's best for us, but what if family is what gets in the way? Back in 2014, it looks like big sis Anne did just that to Jasmine when Anne called out Sam for being "not classy enough" and for cheating on her sister… in public! Both Jas and Sam denied that the incident is the reason for their split, but if the beau and the sis can't manage to get along, the pair might've ended up in splitsville anyway.

    What you should do instead: No matter how much you disapprove of your sister or brother's new love, don't humiliate them or disrespect them. Instead of being the hero to the rescue, you just end up looking like the villain. If you have concerns about your baby sib's current beau, talk to them, or even the pair together, about it in private. You might even end up loving his or her partner as much as you do your little sis or bro!

  5. Zayn Malik & Perrie Edwards

    What they did: After about four years together, Zen ended his relationship with Little Mix's Perrie Edwards via text! As if that wasn't harsh enough, Zayn supposedly sent the message on the night of Little Mix's party in celebration of their number one single, "Black Magic." Zayn went on to post cryptic tweets about P, even going as far as retweeting a photo against Litte Mix. It looks like
    someone's really bitter about the split!

    What you should do instead: No one deserves to be dumped over text. Breaking up is already painful as it is, so be a man (or woman) enough to do it in person and at the right time. And once you've gone your separate ways, though you don't have to force youself to be happy for your ex, don't go out of your way to bring them down either. That's just mean!

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
