Today is Earth Day and many people are doing their part to celebrate by being a little more environmentally friendly. Everyone is giving tips on things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint. Even The Queer Guy Tells It Straight gave us all some great advice on recycling the douche bags in our lives.

So clearly I felt as though I should offer a little tip here as well. You can recycles cans, newspapers, bottles, etc. However, it's usually not a good idea to ever recycle your exes.

I know it's hard. Maybe you haven't had a date in a while so you start to miss that feeling you had when you were with them. Perhaps you have been going on a lot of bad dates lately and realized how great it was when you were a couple. However, keep in mind that no matter how great it was there is a reason you guys broke up.

Now, I know there are couples out there that break up only to get back together later and live happily ever after. These are rare cases and it does not always work out this way. Keep in mind that the relationship you had with your ex might be entirely different from the relationship they had with their ex. No two relationships are alike.

So before you get into recycle mode, pause for a moment and really think it through.
