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

When You Feel Like Nobody Ever Likes You Back

Please don't let it break you.


It appears that I reached many people when I described how it felt to be single for 18 years (and update: it's almost 20 years now), but perhaps I can reach even more people when I explain the feeling when it seems like nobody *ever* likes you back. It's tough and it sucks. Maybe people feel this way about you. Or maybe you're in the exact same position that I am. Whatever end you're on, I'd imagine that you could relate or understand in some sort of way.

It's always fun to like someone new. We all love to fantasize about this new person, tell our friends (or enjoy the sneaky satisfaction of remaining cryptic about it), give him the Instagram follow (but you can't be the first to like his pictures so you wait to be the 23rd), get his phone number (and try *extra* hard not to text it too often), and gaze at a fresh face in class or at our activities.

We get that rush of happiness when he likes our Instagram pictures or when he answers our texts or when he views our Snapchat story or when he makes any type of effort to speak to us.

It's all fun and games. Until reality creeps in and so do our doubts and realizations that he probably doesn't like us back.

And I understand that feeling. We get left on open or read with no follow-up and freeze in our tracks. We see him flirting with someone else and our stomachs churn. And, worst of all, we find out he is in a relationship with someone else and we can feel our hearts physically sink. We begin doubting and hating ourselves and questioning our own intrinsic worth.

In the prolonged time I've been single, I've felt these feelings over and over and over again. And sometimes people can undermine the pain because it isn't a real break-up from an established boyfriend. But we still feel the breaking of our hearts and like our feelings are valid.

It's safe to say I've had to take many Ls in the relationship department, and I continue to take Ls, so I can (probably) relate to what you're feeling.

I've been explicitly told, "I don't like you back." I've tried to break down the touch barrier, but it would build itself back up stronger than ever. I've felt led on only to discover that the person was seeing someone else all along. Even today as a (nearly) 20-year-old, my doubts set in, my flirting efforts are either too strong or not strong enough, and I receive telltale signs that my fantasies will stay fantasies.

And you probably have been in similar situations or perhaps taken different Ls. And you feel ugly. And you feel unlovable. And it sucks.

But you're not. Please don't let it break you.

If you wouldn't place your self-esteem in the hands of the stranger at the bus stop, you shouldn't place your self-esteem in the hands of any one guy. Both the stranger and your love interest are individuals and don't deserve that kind of power. Some situations are not meant to be and that doesn't make you any less beautiful or amazing of a person. Everybody will only have one truly happy ending regardless of who they are. So muster up the strength to move on, and realize that perhaps the happiest endings require the most loss and heartbreak to get there.

14 Song Lyrics That Say 'I Miss You' Just As Good As Blink 182

Because sometimes you want to say more than just "I miss you."


Music can speak incredible volumes that regular words can't reach. I use music all the time to describe how I'm feeling or what I'm going through. I use it most in my relationships, especially with my boyfriend. As a musician, him and I are always finding songs that describe how we feel for each other and the emotions we experience.

Saying "I miss you", sometimes can feel, almost dissipated. But song lyrics can *really* tell someone how much you actually miss them. These are 11 song lyrics that are perfect to tell that special someone you miss them.

1. "Wish You Were Here" by Avril Lavigne

"You're always there, you're everywhere
But right now I wish you were here"

Been far away for far too long"

3. "Hey There, Delilah" by Plain White T's

Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice, it's my disguise
I'm by your side"

4. "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" by Aerosmith

"Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't want to miss a thing"

5. "Home" by Michael Buble or Blake Shelton

"Maybe surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just want to go home
Oh I miss you, you know"

6. "Faithfully" by Journey

"Two strangers learn
To fall in love again
I get the joy
Of rediscovering you
Oh girl, you stand by me
I'm forever yours

7. "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum

"It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now
Said I wouldn't call but I lost all control and I need you now
And I don't know how I can do without, I just need you now"

8. "Making Memories Of Us" by Keith Urban

"I'm gonna be here for you from now on
This you know somehow
You've been stretched to the limits but it's alright now
And I'm gonna make you a promise
If there's life after this
I'm gonna be there to meet you with a warm, wet kiss"

9. "I'm Already There" by Lonestar

"Wish I was in your arms
Lying right there beside you
But I know that I'll be in your dreams tonight"

10. "Talking to the Moon" by Bruno Mars

"At night when the stars
Light up my room
I sit by myself
Talking to the moon
Tryin' to get to you
In hopes you're on
The other side
Talking to me too"

11. "All I Want" by Kodaline

"All I want is nothing more
To hear you knocking at my door
'Cause if I could see your face once more
I could die as a happy man I'm sure"

12.  "The Few Things" by JP Saxe

"You're one of the few things that I'm sure of
You're one of the few things that I know already
I could build my world of
One of the few things that I'm sure of"

13. "Kiss Me Thru The Phone" by Soulja Boy

"And that's the issue, girl you know I miss you
I just wanna kiss you
But I can't right now
So baby kiss me thru the phone (kiss me thru the phone)"

14.  "Falling for You" by The 1975

"I'll take it one day at a time
Soon you will be mine, oh, but I want you now (I want you now)
When the smoke is in your eyes, you look so alive
Do you fancy sitting down with me maybe
'Cause you're all I need"
