Have you had bad luck with meeting nice guys? Does it seem like every guy you meet turns out to be an asshole? I hate to break it to you, but you might be the problem here. Take this quiz to see if you're, in fact, attracting fuckboys.
Montreal is known to be a romantic city, but that doesn't mean that heartbreak in the 514 is impossible. We've all gone through breakups. Some of us have done the dumping while others have been dumped, and we almost always remember which place in Montreal it happened at.
Relationships are hard, and sometimes they sadly come to an end. The only problem is finding a spot symbolic enough to terminate the love affair.
Our city is filled with spots where you can propose, enjoy a romantic evening and of course, where you can break up with someone.
From the steps of a church to carb-filled restaurants, our city is stocked with ideal places to end your relationship.
Why This Makes A Perfect Breakup Spot: Once you say your final words, your ex is going to have to walk down a very, very long flight of stairs which will give them time to think about all the things they did wrong in the relationship.
Why This Makes A Perfect Breakup Spot: If you're so fed up that you're at the point where you hate them and want to expose them to a crowd of people, this is the spot for you.
Right Outside Their Apartment Door
Why This Makes A Perfect Breakup Spot: For those of you who still have a bit of sympathy, just rip the bandaid off in front of their apartment, it'll make things easier on the other person. Let them slowly creep back into their unit before the tears make an appearance.
Address: 138, ave. Atwater, Montreal, QC
Why This Makes A Perfect Breakup Spot: This will give you the chance to get them to buy you groceries and flowers — before you say goodbye forever!

You know when you're out at a club, concert, or even at a grocery store and you see a HELLA fine guy working as the bartender or stock boy? Your automatic instinct is to grab your phone and snap a picture of him to send to your BFF on snapchat or group-chat with the caption "SO FUCKING HOT THO 🍆💦🍆💦".
(I know you're wondering where I am going with this...) Afterwards, your friends usually answer "OMG WHAT A BAE 😍😍😍! Go talk to him" or "Pretend to pass out in the bread isle😂😂😂". Then you laugh and maybe throw him an awkward smile, but you don't usually peruse anything.
Well, this Montreal girl had a different story. She was SO determined to find her mystery man working at the Jazz Fest as a sound operator, that she actually contacted us through Facebook.
She also sent us a video that she took on snapchat and sent to some of her BFFs to rant about how cute this guy was:
(I agree he is fucking cute tho...)
So, if you are, or know, the sound guy working at the Jazz Fest last Sunday July 2nd, then be sure to either contact us OR check out this determined girl's Facebook profile and shoot her a message.
Maybe they will live happily ever after and ride off in the sunset as some sweet jazz plays in the background...
