New Site “Never Liked It Anyway” Lets You Offload Your Ex’s Stuff For Cash
Everyone has had that volcanic breakup- the one where you can’t be in the same room with one another without ending up at each other’s throats, hissing and shouting or speaking in sharp and pointed words, depending on your personality type and level of your ex’s douchiness.
One of the most upsetting aftereffects of a relationship can stem from possessions- things left over from the relationship that remind you too much of the other person to healthily be around, yet due to their monetary value (or, let’s face it, your attachment to them), you can’t just chuck them in the trash.
A poignant pop culture example of this would be the scene in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, when Jim Carrey’s character is focusing on what appears to be random bits of kitsch- but the little pieces of ephemera help him weave the emotional grid that forms the substance of his memories of his relationship with his lover Clementine, played by Kate Winslet.
Of course, no such service exists in real life to erase now painful memories of love lost or otherwise offload the depressing yet potentially valuable vestiges of a relationship gone awry. But a new website, Never Liked It Anyway, allows you to at least gain financially from your heartbreak and in the process, rid you of those upsetting reminders- without effects similar to “a night of heavy drinking.”
On Never Liked It Anyway, you can offer up the leftovers from your relationship, share your stories, or get some bargains due to another person’s messy breakup. Each item is listed with a “real world price,” as well as a “break-up price,” showcasing the cut-rates many are willing to accept to offload their ex’s XBox. The site’s About Us page explains the site as:
“A place to tell it like it is… A place to shed the stories and the stuff… A place to read other dilemmas so shocking that you forget about your own… So you can bounce back quicker that you thought… You may have broken-up, but there’s no need to break-down.”
All in all, it’s surprising a site like Never Liked It Anyway hasn’t been done yet- but it’s a fantastic idea. Would you sell the stuff your ex gave you just to get it out of your site?
