Details of swap:
Who hasnt had their heart broken, or lost someone they loved to the big wide world at some point in their lives. Break ups happen, it is a part of life, but everyone needs a little cheering up at these times aswellI mean, who wants to break up and then feel even more alone. You could have broken up with a boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, friend or maybe you are sad cos you havent had anyone in a long time. This swap is to help you feel better by having someone to talk to, to craft for and to listen to.
Part of the requirements are to vent, either in a letter or an email, privately (please dont feel like you have to tell the whole group) because talking always helps, even if you dont notice it right away.
The other main point is that this is a Flat Rate swap, you are filling this box with as much as you can to help make your partners break up easier.
Chocolate, a journal, a stress ball, a voodoo doll, relaxation candles, ANYTHING that will make the whole process a little less awful.

I'm in.  Broken engagement as of last week.  Had already quit jobbed, packed for move, and gotten together wedding outfit.  *sigh*

But, I want a positive, empowering, forward-looking box of treats.  I can't do maudlin, wallowing, looking-back, and sad.  I've got enough of that going on my own.  I need up not down, OK, please?

Not that I wish break-ups on people, but they have to be out there.  I do wish the people from the new ideas thread would sign up.  I'm kinda wondering if there'll even be a swap, now.  *shrugs*

I think this is a really great idea. I don't have a recent break-up but I do have a relationship that I should have gotten out of a long time ago so as far as hearts being messed up I count ha. I realize there hasn't been a lot of comments on here and I'd definitely be down for just doing it to make somebody elses day better, I like these kind of cheer-up sort of swaps. I just completed my first swap so if I get rated in time I'm definitely up for it if the moderator is okay. And if not then aiki I'd do a private special swap with you if you needed an extra boost of positive fun stuff. Cheesy

LR -

It's very sweet of you to offer, but it's OK if the swap doesn't make.  I'm getting involved in some others including a pretty intensive Christmas one.

Basically, in a lot of ways, I am fighting my natural instinct to hunker down in a bunker mentality and isolate myself when things go horribly, horribly wrong.  I am trying not to cave in and go into that pit.  One of the ways is by getting back into swapping.

I'm with Lindsayrose... I haven't been through a recent breakup but I was once engaged too, moved with him bc he had gotten a job in another city, AND I had bought my wedding dress. The good news is that I have a boyfriend now and he is sooooo good to me and I thought I'd never be happy with someone else again. I'm actually so much happier now than I ever was back then and I didn't think it was possible (so that's something to look forward to!). The bad news is that my engagement ended on a bitter note and  I love the idea of a voodoo doll!! Ha! Smiley Anyways, I'd be happy to sign up too!! If this swap doesn't pan out Aikibookworm, feel free to PM me because I have been there!! And it helps sooo much to talk to someone that understands!
