What did you do to get over your first heartbreak and what did you do so you wouldn't think about them?
Most Helpful Guy
Read what science has to say about what love is. Love is chemical process that occurs in the brain to cause us to bond with a mate. Heartbreak is withdrawal from natural opiates that are produced as part of this process. In short, love is a delusion caused by a drug addiction. Love ticks the boxes for a psychiatric illness.
Once you understand the process of love, it is possible for an intelligent and educated person to keep things in perspective.
I did that when I was 21 years old, after my first serious girlfriend broke my heart in a huge way. The heartbreak that I went through left me psychologically incapable of loving anyone again, so I began to read about what was going on.
In my opinion, love should be irrelevant for an intelligent person. A mate should be chosen on rational criteria, not a warm fuzzy feeling that belongs in the realm of rainbows and unicorns.
