You’ve been dumped. He’s cheated. She won’t talk to you anymore. Whatever it is, you’re crushed and your heart feels like it’s being pummelled by a meat tenderiser 24/7.

You want an expiry date for your pain but getting over a broken heart takes time. An infuriatingly indefinite amount of time. There are things that can help it on its way: booze, rebound sex, ice cream, sobbing into your pillow at 3am in the morning, Googling ‘how to get an ex back’.

But most of these have repercussions for that bruised heart of yours.
