So you’ve just served your lover breakfast. But to make them feel better, you try to stay in contact with them. Don’t!

If you don’t know how to handle things after serving a person breakfast, I’ll show you how. .

First, you need to feel bad

You just showed another person’s child pepper. You should at least feel bad for what you just did.

Don’t breadcrumb them

If you don’t know what breadcrumbing is, it’s the unfair act of giving a person just enough attention to keep them interested in you. It’s a wicked thing to do because you’ll just be serving them breakfast more than one.

Block them and don’t attempt to call them after they block you back

You don’t want to give them PTSD when they’re trying to get over you. If you feel somehow about them blocking you, just face your front and mind your business.

But you can Invite them to church
