After a year and a half of being couple goals, Amy Schumer parted ways with her boyfriend Ben Hanisch (opens in new tab)—and is opening up about the breakup. Turns out her attitude about the whole thing is refreshingly chipper, because yes, life does go on after a relationship ends.

"I went through a breakup about a month ago," Schumer said during a Hilarity for Charity show in NYC. "We were a year-and-a-half, you know, it's not that bad."

She ended up joking about the relationship, continuing "We went out with a couple who had been together a long time. We were trying to rush the intimacy. I was trying to impress the girl and I was like, 'Well he woke me up this morning with a fart!' And he just slowly turned to me and he goes are 'We doing this?' And I was like 'No, no, no, no, we're not opening fire. Don't tell me any of the disgusting shit I've done.'"

In other news, Schumer seems to has moved on: "I'm dating this new dude. He's awesome, he's like Stephen Hawking, sexually."

Good times!
