Breakups are tough, aren’t they? I remember my first serious breakup (yes, that exists). It was chaotic and I wish I had Netflix back then. Movies and series keep your mind preoccupied for it to be thinking about someone else. Here are 12 Netflix shows for you to binge-watch if you’ve just broken up:
1. The People v O.J. Simpson
I will start this list with a thriller based on a real-life incident. The series focuses on the days followed after Orenthal James Simpson became a suspect for Nicole Brown Simpson’s murder. It will captivate you from the very beginning.
2. Rick and Morty
What screams self-care other than an animated show for adults? Rick and Morty, of course. The cartoon is filled to the brim with sexual innuendoes and witty remarks on the present condition of the society. It’s a must-watch for everyone who has been introduced to porn. We can’t risk corrupting the mind of the innocents.
This series will make you feel better about your breakup. At least you got out before your partner started displaying sociopathic tendencies. It’ll make you feel better about being single in general.
4. The Crown
A historical drama might help you shift your focus to the bigger issues at hand – the political state of your country.
5. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
A big bowl of popcorn and some mindless comedy is what you need to get over the person who wouldn’t mean anything to you in a year.
6. The Big Lebowski
Followed by the Monty Python and the Holy Grail, this is another comedic movie which you will love only if you’re a lonely man.
7. The Society
I would recommend watching this series after the second season is released on Netflix. Personally, the series is ingenious. If you sat down to watch it today, you wouldn’t be able to leave your device.
Why be in a relationship when you can be an independent individual? This movie tells you why you shouldn’t cry over a breakup and instead focus on yourself.
9. 3 Idiots
Need I say more about this movie? Everyone has watched it and everyone loves it. The more you watch it, the more you love it.
Another timeless classic (personal opinion), I think this movie was a masterpiece of its time. It showed a woman who was broken up with because her fiance had paid a little visit to America. The moment he saw her as someone who loved herself, he repented ever deciding to let her go. You need to love yourself and this movie shows you exactly that.
11. Action Replayy
I watched it as a little kid who was grossed out by the simple concept of romance and thought science-fiction movies like these were the shizz. You should watch this because it’s funny. Even though it carries the heavy idea of true love, you won’t be missing your bae. You will be lost in the comedy.
12. Brij Mohan Amar Rahe
Based on a true story, Brij Mohan Amar Rahe is the story of a man who was accused of murdering himself. If that doesn’t make you watch it then I don’t know what will.
