Break-ups are hard for everyone, but obsessing over your ex won’t do you any good. It won't bring them back and it certainly won't make you feel any better. Here are some tips to help you get over your ex, crush or even someone who just doesn’t feel the same way you do.
Don't look for excuses to run into them
Sure, you may know where your ex is on Thursdays at 3:45, but that doesn't mean you should go there. This will only creep them out and make them think you're crazy.
Think about their negative qualities
No one is perfect, especially not your ex. Maybe Suzy talks during movies and John is picks his teeth at the dinner table. Focus on all the things that bugged you about your ex that'll help you move on faster.
Don't stalk them online (or offline)
Discovering that Suzy is already dating someone new will NOT make you feel better. It will only make you more upset. So after you break up un-friend Suzy on Facebook and un-follow her on Instagram. This will keep you from checking her profile constantly and accidentally liking one of her pictures.
Get a new hobby
Immerse yourself into something new; learn a new language, start crocheting or get a pet. Pick something time consuming and before you know it you'll forget all about your ex.
Date someone else
If getting a new hobby doesn’t work for you try dating someone else, someone who is the complete opposite of your ex.
Avoid things that remind you of them
Avoiding things that remind you of your ex will keep you from thinking about them and all the good times you had together. Watching the movie you saw on your first date will NOT make you feel better.
Hangout with your friends more
Getting out of a relationship gives you more time to spend with your friends (especially friends you may have alienated). Have lunch with your BFF, call up an old friend or go out and make new ones.
Remember boys and girls, lovers come and go but friendships (and animals) are forever.
