Or more accurately, how have *you* successfully managed to get over someone? If you have some 'dos' and 'don'ts' from past experiences, they would be very helpful :)
Some extra info: I will probably be seeing the person I'm trying to get over almost every week for the next year, so avoiding him and creating distance might not be possible.

Speaking of, I just came out of a long distance 1 year relationship not too long ago (May 2014). It was so hard to get over this girl. I felt regret leaving her, I kept trying to get back with her. I guess I just respected her space after so many months. To be honest, I still have little thoughts about her from time to time. But it's normal to try and get rid of thoughts of someone you really care about.
The things I did to get over her was to:
1. Look for another partner.
2. Find someone that is not similar to your past loved one.
3. Delete that person from Instagram, Facebook or any other social media.
You should be just fine if you do those 3 things, sure you still might think of the person, a lot. But that's normal, trust me. If he or she really cares about you, that person will come back. If they choose not to, just know there is always someone better out there for you.2
