20 Sad Country Songs For When Chad From Theta Apple Pie Won't Text You Back

While it might not be the end of the world, it sure is fun to have a dramatic soundtrack to get you through.

I love being over dramatic and acting like I am heartbroken by listening to these sad country love songs after things with a guy doesn't work out. So if you are anything like me I hope you find this playlist relatable and kind of funny.

1. Either Way - Chris Stapleton

"I used to cry and stay up nights
And wonder what went wrong
It's been hard
But hearts can only do that for so long"

Okay Becky, you're like totally being dramatic right now, but go ahead and act like your husband of 8 years just left you for that hot yoga instructor.

2. You and Tequila - Kenny Chesney

"'Cause you and Tequila make me crazy"

Let's be honest, tequila is probably the reason you started talking to Chad in the first place.

3. More Like Her - Miranda Lambert

"I should have held on to my pride"

Miranda Lambert is queen of country heartbreak!!!!

4. Drowns the Whiskey - Jason Aldean ft. Miranda Lambert

"And the thing that really gets me
Is how your memory drowns the whiskey"

Pro Tip: stay away from alcohol unless you want to cry over chad for 45 minutes!!

5. When Someone Stops Loving You - Big Little Town

"When someone stops loving you
It don't make the evening news
It don't keep the sun from rising, the clock from winding, your heart from beating"

Okay, so you totally didn't love Chad, but you loved the attention!!

6. Unlove You - Jennifer Nettles

"My heart can't unbreak
I can't unfeel how it felt"

Literally can't unfeel how it felt to be left on read!

7. One Number Away - Luke Combs

"And I'm one number away from calling to you
I said I was through, but I'm dying inside"

When Jessica takes away your drink because you're one sip away from drunk texting Chad.

8. Different For Girls - Dierks Bentley ft. Elle King

"It's different for girls when their hearts get broke
They can't tape it back together with a whiskey and Coke
They don't take someone home and act like it's nothing
They can't just switch it off every time they feel something
A guy gets drunk with his friends and he might hook up"

Preach Dierks!!

9. Heartache That Don't Stop Hurting - Jason Aldean

"I've been here a bunch of times
It all starts with the same old lines it's over, baby it's over
Nothing about it ever feels good
It knocks you down just like it should
But it goes away it always goes away
Something about this time feels different
It's like I'm in a fight I'm about to lose

This might be the heartache that don't stop hurting"

This song is so beautiful, even if you'll be over Chad in about three hours when Brad from Sigma Chi Tea invites you to his date night.

10. Tomorrow - Chris Young

"We're like fire and gasoline
I'm no good for you
You're no good for me"

11. She Wouldn't Be Gone - Blake Shelton

"If I had loved her this much all along, maybe maybe, yeah maybe
She wouldn't be gone, she wouldn't be gone"

At this point Blake Shelton is even looking better than Chad, at least he is a romantic and friends with Adam Levine.

12. Better Man - Big Little Town

"I know I'm probably better off on my own
Than lovin' a man who didn't know
What he had when he had it"

His loss anyway, sis!!!

13. Do I - Luke Bryan

"Would you rather just turn away and leave me lonely
Do I just need to give up and get on with my life"

These are the questions I need answers to.

14. I Found Someone - Blake Shelton

"Even though I'm moving on
It don't mean that I don't still love you

And you'll always have
A place here in my heart"

Mood after you agree to go on a date with Joe from Kappa Kappa Cupcake.

15. Space Cowboy - Kacey Musgraves

"You can have your space, cowboy
I ain't gonna fence you in
Go on ride away, in your Silverado
Guess I'll see you 'round again
I know my place, and it ain't with you
Sunsets fade, and love does too"

When you're being a mature adult and realizing that you want Chad to be happy and have space but you're still a yeehaw kinda sad about it.

16. All Too Well - Taylor Swift

"Hey, you call me up again just to break me like a promise.
So casually cruel in the name of being honest.
I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here"

Thanks for making me feel like a piece of wrinkly paper, Chad.

17. Another Dumb Love Song - Jessie James Decker

"This might be another dumb love song
Cause I know you've been moving on"

The fact that Jessie James Decker had to date like a million Chads before getting Eric Decker makes all this worth it!!!

18. Just Another Thing - Maren Morris

"You're just another mess, another late night call I shouldn't be making
Just another high, another one night shot I shouldn't be chasing
I got my excuses, no I don't know why I do it but
You're just another, just another thing I shouldn't be doing"

When you answer Chad's 3 am "u up" text.

19. The More Boys I Meet - Carrie Underwood

"I close my eyes and I kiss that frog
Each time finding
The more boys I meet, The more I love my dog"

This song is a whole ass mood.

20. Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)

"Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain"

Because at the end of the day you will remember Chad is a stupid boy and you are a strong, independent, beautiful woman.

Literally, so hot RN

As Much As You May Want To, You'll Never Get Over Your First Love

You never forget your first


Your first love is just that: the first person you've ever truly loved (besides your family and friends). Maybe you've kissed a few people before, but with this person it's different. They mean something to you that no other person ever has before. Maybe you met this person when you were younger in high school or met them a little later in life as I did at the end of my first year of college. Meeting my first love transformed me, both for the good and the bad, and as much as I may want to, I'll never get over my first love and neither will you.

When we met, we didn't meet in some fantastical way, we met on Tinder right after a surprise breakup of mine. We had instant chemistry, and I didn't get to kiss him for weeks because I ended up getting mono right after the breakup (haha whoops). He was the first person I've ever kissed who I didn't want to stop kissing- ever. Yes, second semester freshman year me was super extra when it came to him, but being with him was so different than anyone else. Things progressed through the summer as we talked every single day, even though we never got to meet up because we were both busy, and at the beginning of my sophomore year, I lost my virginity to him. That was a big step for someone who thought she'd wait until she was married. He made sure I was fine and didn't push me to do anything I wasn't comfortable with. I'll treasure that forever.

He was someone I loved with all of my being, to the point where it was physically hurting me in the end because I knew what I felt wasn't going to ever be reciprocated the way I wanted it to be. That's when I had to end it, which was one of the hardest things I've ever done. To me, he was a boyfriend, but to him, I was a friend with benefits. I wanted something more and he wanted less, and I didn't want to accept that. I wasn't his first love but he was mine, which he doesn't know and probably never will. I have had moments where I thought I was over him, but then all the emotions flood right back. In hard moments of hurt is when I miss him the most, but also in moments of joy too. If I see a nice car I think of him, or of other little things, like a french bulldog or The Fast and The Furious.

Your first love leaves such a monumental effect on you as a person. They have seen parts of you others have not. You will always remember your firsts more than anything else, which is why your first love never leaves you. As roughly as things ended between he and I, he's always going to have a piece of me that no one else will ever have. The relationship we had wasn't what you'd expect from someone you call your first love, but his mark on me is what helped shape me into who I am today for better or for worse.

Don't let any negativity remain when it comes to your first love (if there is any). Let it go and remember the good. They will be a part of you forever, so you can never truly get over you.

Why You Keep Falling In Love With People Who Don’t Love You Back In Your 20s

It's embedded in our human psychology to always desire deeper connections and meaningful relationships with the people we hold close to our heart, even if the feeling aren't necessarily mutual.


Can love truly be both beautiful and heartbreaking?

It's a question I silently asked myself, sitting shotgun in a car next to someone I considered my friend.

A "friend" seemed to be the right label to define our relationship. To him, I was just a friend—who just happened to be a girl, a girl he texts regularly, jokes around, and can grab a drink with. And we loved each other as friends, because we both trusted each other, we had fun together and each had our own independent lives which would connect occasionally in a complete, non-questionable platonic way.

But slowly, for me, he was becoming everything I've ever wanted in a guy, standing right in front of me. But he wasn't mine to have.

And imagine being so close to someone you want except you can't have him because it might just ruin everything you've already shared together. Because what if you scare him away? What if he replies by telling you "No"?

That's the simple nature of falling in love with someone you can't be with.

In our early part of our lives—particularly in our 20s and during our college years, we all experience this type of heartbreak.

To name a few: A high school boyfriend who lives halfway across the country now. The hot guy you sit next to in lecture who already has a girlfriend. The casual hookup who you just can't manage to stop thinking about as you endlessly toss and turn at night. The platonic friend who doesn't quite see you as being something more.

We all at one point in our thoughts have imagined "coupling" or sharing a life with a guy who we can't seem to have for ourselves. We've always dreamt how things could actually work out if you actually shared your feelings with him except the closest we'll ever reach to it is in our dreams, not reality.

And to examine the logic behind why this happens, we have to first admit how we always want what we can't have.

Because it's embedded in our human psychology to always desire deeper connections and meaningful relationships with the people we hold close to our heart, even if the feeling aren't necessarily mutual.

So, it's not really this case of the whole Romeo and Juliet "star-crossed lovers" BS but rather, it's purely a one sided love which can most definitely be beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. Beautiful because there's always a connection you feel which makes you all warm and bubbly inside but heartbreaking because you know this connection is merely flowing in a one way track.

So then, why do we tend to maintain our connections with these people who hurt us?

One reason is because you're afraid to lose him altogether. Perhaps you think he's going to go on full freak-out mode after you spill the beans to him. My piece of advice in this scenario would be to just suck it up and take the chance. Talk to him about how you feel because honestly, what's there to lose? Unless you're not reciting some sappy, over-the-top love story about how many kids you plan to have with him, you're fine.

But perhaps, the most common reason is because we assume he might eventually fall in love with us, too.

And if this pertains to you, gear up because I can write on for days about why this is a big no-no. Heck, I can probably teach a class or lecture to all of you about my elaborative theory of why you will definitely know whether a boy truly loves you or not. It's plain and simple—if he loves you, he'll make sure you know.

And you can't force someone to fall in love with you. Even if you pay them a million bucks, you can get them to pretend to love you or force them to be with you—but it's never going to be true love. Because true, unrequited love is effortless. It comes naturally. The fiery passion will be shared mutually and you won't ever have to question whether or not you belong with him.
