My first ex boyfriend broke up with me nearly two months ago. We were long distance and he decided after nearly 2 years together to end it with me over the phone. I did the crying and anger and even began a fling with someone else and I feel like I've moved on. But now our (my ex's and mine) friendship group has planned a trip to where I live for the weekend as it is the same distance for everyone. I want to see my friends but I've been trying to figure out if I could handle seeing him again but I feel numb. I don't seem to have any feelings or emotions about it and I have no idea what I'm feeling. I have been trying to work out how I feel and I just can't. I've looked it up and all I keep finding are articles aimed at men and not women. Am I completely alone in this? Am I completely broken? Is this normal?

You're going through a transition period, the numbess, you could say it's like a blank slate, you have been wiped clean. After being emotionally drained, you are not able to feel anything more. I have felt like this before and it goes away. I wouldn't waste anytime on him as you don't want to end up back where you started- even though it's unlikely after you have reached this stage.1
