Yes, I have. I got over the breakup sinking into a bottle of beer! 🙂

I hope you’ve gotten over it by now, Fabian.

I broke up with my boyfriend a few years ago and I feel bad to make him sad.

I know how you feel, Milena; but it wouldn’t not be fair to continue just because you felt bad for him.

My boyfriend broke up with me in 1992. I never gave up on him and we are married since 2002. We have a wonderful family now.

That’s great, Rosane! I am glad to hear about the happy ending!

I’ve gotten over many bad situations, but never a break up. I hope my wife never breaks up with me hehehehe….  

Same here, Beto! 🙂

Yes… I already broke up a relationship in the past . but I am married and very happy presently!

Glad to hear that, Elizabeth!

I heard once that there is live after get married, so I believe that after broke up the same should happen. (It´s a joke obviously, and I hope my wife doesn´t see this)

You need to invite your wife to listen to these mini-podcasts and participate here! That way you will behave yourself here! 🙂

Hello Tim! What about the phrasal verb “do away” what is it meaning?  Can I translate it as Acabar too?

Thanks a lot.

do away with somebody means to murder someone to kill!
If you’re looking for words in order to express a end a relationship, I’m gonna write some words down to you:

split up
run out on
grow away from
drift apart
break down
throw over(old-fashioned)
give someone the heave-ho(informal)
go your separate ways
put some distance between

That’s it! I strongly advise you take a look at those words above and learn more about them.

Ok Joilson! Thank you very much!

Thank you for your answer, Joilson! It’s great to see members helping each other here in our community!

When I was 19 my girlfriend broke up with me. I think I let her down for something. I got over the break up after three years when I met antoher girl who is my wife.

So glad you got over the break-up and found someone special to share your life with, José Luiz!

Hi Tim…

Yes, I have.

I got over the breakup cried a lot

That’s normal, Vicente. But I’m glad you got over it.

Currently, i´m married, but, my wife and I broke up at least six times before we got marry. we’ve been married since 2012 and we have a son called Caio.

I’m so glad you worked out your problems and got married, Jorge! My wife and I broke up and got back together again once before we got married, too. 🙂

Break up with someone is inevitable sometime in life, but what I really want to know is the meaning of “breaking bad”, a famous AMC series. Thanks!

Good question, Helio! How about I answer that in another mini-podcast? 🙂

Sure you can! I’m waiting than. Thx 

Olá preciso de um professor para aulas particulares você realiza esse serviços ?

Olá, Marcelo! Obrigado pelo interesse! Infelizmente, no momento não temos horários para aulas por Skype ou algo assim; mas se um dia fizermos isso, eu deixo você saber; OK?

Every breakup is very difficult to anyone. The most important thing to do is calm down, go on with your life and have faith that better days will come!

Good words of advice, Paulo!

I broke up with a girl, 2 years ago.

I hope you have gotten over that relationship and gotten on with your life since then.

I broke up with my girl friend yesterday
