Tell Us Your Worst Chicago Break-Up Story

After spring fever comes summer lovin', and we know the Chicago dating scene is alive and well. We also know that not every hook-up turns into happily ever after. While we could regale you with breakup stories from the office, we'd much rather feature the people we can't get enough of—our readers. We're sending out a call to arms for every broken-hearted, screwed-over, are-you-kidding-me breakup and dumping story in Chicago. Think your story has what it takes? Send it in! Don't let 'em get away with it, let us memorialize those bad deeds forever. If we can save just one person from enduring a horrible breakup of their own, well then we've done our job.
To enter, email shani@refinery29.com with a 200-word or less*, clear and concise description of your Chicago breakup story. Please include your first name (you can change for anonymity) and neighborhood.
* We reserve the right to edit your entry for length and clarity.
