Got a question for Courtney's Mom?
1. Keep Mum on the Dirty Details
Jason Segel and Michelle Williams have yet to even comment about their breakup (the news came from those mysterious "sources"), which is a lot classier than spilling the deets via Twitter. No need to give the world a lengthy explanation of what happened when you split from a guy-that's your business and your business only.
2. Make a PC Joint Statement
It might be hard to resist telling your respective circles of friends what happened between you two. So, take a cue from Bachelor Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson, who jointly announced they had "grown apart" after a year of dating. (To the surprise of no one, we might add.) Planning a neutral, agreed-upon statement shows that you're mature and not out to hurt the other person-which, trust us, would only make you feel totally crappy later anyway.
3. Talk Up Your Ex
Say what you will about Harry Styles' too-nice comments about his ex Taylor Swift after she seemingly made fun of his accent at the Brit awards, but even though the rumor is that he cheated, he's coming off like a perfect gentleman by calling Taylor's every post-split performance "great!" Kill your ex with kindness when people ask you about him. (Props to Jennifer Lawrence's ex, Nicholas Hoult, for praising the new Oscar winner, too.)
