What do you do with the physical items you’re left with after a breakup? Here’s a quick-’n'-easy answer: Hawk ‘em! A new website, Never Liked It Anyway, lets users sell stuff left over from relationships past — and share the stories that go with them.
Sure, you can scoop up deals on goods like a fondue pot, jewelry, wedding dresses, and electronics, sure, but the stories are even better:
Take user Natasha’s hot pair of black Adrienne Vittadini “Jeff” boots, for example. For a “breakup price” of $65 (down from the “real world price” of $165), you can wear the boots that Natasha no longer can:
His name was Jeff. He turned into a heel. Cannot wear the boot knowing that it’s name is Jeff… although every step I take if I did keep them would make me feel like I was stepping on his head…. hmmmm…. maybe I could keep them. No. Someone else should stomp him. Please take them off my hands.
Or, score a size-10 tungsten carbide wedding band that TheDude needs to part with:
Yea, ex-wife had an affair a few years ago, ended in divorce. I’m in a great relationship now and the last step is to get rid of my first wedding band.
The site’s origins are also rooted in a breakup story: When site creator Bella found herself holding an extra plane ticket after a breakup, she came up with the idea for Never Liked It Anyway.
We say: Way to take lemons and make breakup lemonade!
