Youtube Breakups That Broke Our Heart

4 YouTube Breakups That Broke Our Hearts

Two years have passed and we're still not over Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith calling it quits.


In the wake of the beloved OTP's (one true pairing) Alex Wassabi and Lauren Riihimaki's (or LaurDIY) heart-wrenching breakup, we're reminded of the other Youtube couples who broke up too soon.

1. Alex Wassabi and LaurDIY

A little more information on the relationship everyone liked to call "Laurex," these two met three years ago and were about to move in together in September, but they both decided it was best that they better themselves alone rather than as a couple. The two are still deeply in love, but need to love themselves before than can share love with another person.

2. David Dobrik and Liza Koshy

One of the most iconic breakups this year, David Dobrik and Liza Koshy ended their two-year relationship in June. The two started their vlogging careers on Vine and soon moved on to Youtube where we saw their relationship blossom. Little did we know, they were struggling mentally and didn't feel as though they could maintain their relationship. You can still see the two staying best friends and thriving as just friends, but their forgotten love story will always break our heart.

3. PrankvsPrank

Although they broke up two years ago, Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith dated for over 10 years and entertained their fans with elaborate pranks on each other. They blamed their breakup on the constant pressure they felt from their jobs as Youtubers and vloggers. However, rumors later revealed that Wellens might have a 13-year-old daughter whom he never met and wanted to build a relationship with, so many claim that was the final straw in the relationship. Either way, these two brought so much joy to so many people and it really broke some hearts when they called it quits.

4. Colleen Ballinger and Josh Evans

In October 2016, Colleen Ballinger, also known for her alter-ego Miranda Sings, told her audience that she and her hubby of a year, Josh Evans (Joshua DTV), were getting a divorce. Ballinger and Evans dated for roughly eight years before he dropped to one knee and she said "I do." Once they uploaded the breakup videos, they explained that the relationship was always on the rocks and they would fight constantly. Luckily our favorite singer has found a new fiancé, Erik Stocklin, and is pregnant with a baby boy due in January 2019.

Why You Should Stop Chasing Him

You deserve better.

They say “the thrill of the chase" makes someone more enticing. There's just something about wanting something you can't have that drives you crazy (in a good way). There is never a dull moment. Pursuing him is a challenge. Nothing comes easily. What's the fun in that anyway?

I'm going to tell you this: stop chasing him. Stop forgiving him when he forgets to answer your text messages and phone calls. Stop being the one to always make plans. Stop letting him bail on you. Stop waiting around for him. Stop being lied to. Stop making excuses when he doesn't make time for you. There is a difference between someone who is “hard to get" and a flat out jerk who doesn't give you the time of day. Stop letting him use you.

You deserve to be with someone who makes you fall asleep every night in the middle of texting him because neither of you want the conversation to end. You deserve someone who plans dates for the two of you. You deserve someone who asks you to hang out before midnight. You deserve someone who wants to spend time with you just as much as you do with them. You deserve someone who insists on paying for your ice cream. You deserve someone who won't deceive you. You deserve someone who is straightforward. You deserve attention. You deserve affection. You deserve a partnership that is mutual, not one-sided. You deserve to be chased.

You are better than 3 a.m. “Hey" texts. You are better than a night spent watching a movie just to fool around. You are better than trying to decode his vague messages. You are better than his shadiness. You are better than mind games. You are better than being ignored.

If you have to chase him, he's not worth it. Don't settle for someone who makes you beg for his attention. If he is genuinely interested in getting to know you, he will put in the effort. A relationship where your feelings are reciprocated is far more rewarding than one where you constantly feel like you have to drag him along.

Change your mentality. Become more independent. Be confident, be bold. Find happiness in being alone. Don't waste your time pathetically chasing after someone who doesn't feel the same, but doesn't have the heart or the courage to tell you so. Your self-confidence and positivity will make you radiant, and eventually, you will attract the kind of guy who is mature enough to not mess with your head.

The Easiest Way To Get Over A Breakup

Laying in your pajamas is not going to fix everything.


Breakups suck. There is no other way to say it. But... the good thing about breakups is that they can be seen as a good thing rather than a bad thing. I think the first step to getting over a breakup is to take time to grieve. Your life is going to be different. A whole person is removed from your life. Removed from your routine.

It's OK to take a day to be sad.

I usually take one to two days to be sad and eat a lot of food. You can't just skip over the loss and think that you will recover. You can't do that. Take your two or so days to be sad. No longer than a week. Don't wallow in your dirty, crumb covered sheets.

Once you have taken your grieving time, get your butt up.

Take a shower and leave your house. Put on your favorite outfit and do whatever you need to to make yourself feel better. Go do something. It can be something as small as getting a coffee or walking with friends. Do something with people. Don't become a recluse and isolate yourself.

Do not post on social media.

It is SO tempting to tweet about how sad you are or post a sad snap but don't. Don't let your ex have that much power over you. Don't give them the satisfaction of how sad you are without them. They are going to move on, so you should too. You should also mute them or unfollow your ex. There is no reason to get upset every time you open your phone and see their face. It's not "childish" or "petty" it's smart.

You have to put yourself first and be selfish at this time.

Once you allow yourself to climb out of your dark hole of pity, jump back into life. Keep your chin up and keep going. The best way to "win" in the breakup is to be happy and move on without them. You may fall, you will get random slip-ups of sadness, but you will be OK. Take what you have learned in the relationship and remember that part. Notice what worked and what didn't.

You are fine, it's just a breakup not the end of the world. You got this.
