It’s no secret that one of the reasons to watch television these days—especially sitcoms—is to get engrossed in the ever-fluctuating relationships of television characters. But if you watch those same shows with someone who doesn’t love that genre, they’ll be able to point out all the flaws with the characters. The same things that make some of those characters interesting to watch—the drama and the mystery—also tend to make them kind of terrible people if you think about it too hard. But sometimes, producers manage to write a romance that’s actually healthy for the characters involved, in which the guy would be totally worth bringing home in real life. Here are 10 TV men we’d actually want to date in real life.
Whether you were with the other person for 30 days or 30 years, breaking up is one of the hardest things to do.

When grieving, you might want to kick back, wallow a little, and listen to some sad songs written by other people who have gone through the same thing you’re going through. Whatever genre you like to listen to and whatever type of relationship you had, you can guarantee there’s a sad song out there that’s perfect for you. So pull out your headphones, kick back, and listen to one of these 12 songs, each representing a different musical genre and perfect for a break-up.
