Break ups are always difficult, but sometimes the hardest part of all is not having the chance to get your feelings off your chest after parting from a less-than-ideal match.
Luckily, frustated women can now vent to their hearts’ content thanks to the Instagram account To The Guys I’ve Dated which shares short letters from people around the world to their exes, explaining exactly what went wrong – and it makes for eye-opening reading.
