you know what happens when you try to force your brain not to think about a pink elephant? exactly, you picture the pink elephant. the more you try to forget about the pink elephant, the pinker the elephant in your mind.
so this pink elephant broke my heart, and I have to move on because I think I'm losing my mind and obsessing way too much.
but then I bump into the pink elephant randomly on the street.
and then I go out in town with the girls, and I meet the pink elephant holding hands with his new elephantee.
and then I run into some old aquintance and they ask me "how pink are things between you and your elephant?"
and then I date other colorfull animals, and all I see is that they aren't pink enough or aren't elephantly enought, and then I go back and think about my pink elephant.
and then I listen to a song, and it reminds me of my pink elephant.
and then, I drink a glass of water. you know who else drinks water in order to survive? exactly, the pink elephant.
now what do I do?

Eat one of these.
While you are chewing think as hard as you possibly can on this elephant. Keep thinking. Think until you can think no more. Write poems, and lists, and other things about them. Draw them a picture. Do everything your little hands and do for this elephant for one whole day.
When you are done you will be done.2

That's what happened to me. I know its slightly horrible, but I went into no contact. Killed me.
I have a hard time meeting guys. Even though I'm told I don't know how pretty I am, I am very socially awkward, weird... but that one guy loved it... understood, found it sexy blahblahblah
So I put on makeup every day, changing it up often, uploading selfies or me doing cool /fun stuff on social media so he can see, snapchat works best if he's into that, upload to your story DONT send him stuff directly no matter how drunk you get in no contact.
Focus on yourself. Exercise. Find a new hobby or go back to one you were maybe "too busy" for while you were dating.
Watch hits on Netflix.
At least "looking" happy and strong even if you miss him to your ex will make you more attractive. Flaunt a rebound guy. It'll probably work like how it did for me. Guys are territorial. He may not try to talk to you with a new bf, but if time heals pain you may have caused him then he may talk to you when you are available. I hope this helps, not much bg info in your post.1
