The Breakup Monologues with Rosie Wilby / The Breakup that Broke the ‘Rules’ - with Sarah Southern, Kimberley Wilson and Paula Varjack

Listen on

Episode notes

Rosie unravels the mystery of why one of her breakups, after only a couple of dates, ripped to the heart of her vulnerabilities... and transported her right back to feeling excluded at school. She speaks to comedian and coach Sarah Southern about how one of the ‘rules’ of breakups - the idea that the length of time it takes to recover is proportional to the length of time you were together - doesn’t always apply. They share stories about fleeting connections that left a big impression on them. Rosie then chats to psychologist, author and podcaster Kimberley Wilson about how a rejection can represent or trigger something else, something deeper, something from longer ago. They also touch on the nutrition, sleep and exercise routines that might help our mental health after a breakup. Finally she speaks to performer Paula Varjack about bisexuality, biphobia, the imperfect ratio of male and female dating options on Tinder and some funny stories from her event Worst Date Ever.
