  • I make a list of all the things that this girl did me wrong and all the reasons why it's damaging or unhealthy to continue with this girl. I got to the part for the reasons why we should continue, I couldn't think of a solid one. That really put things into perspective for me. Hope that helps.

  • I'm going through something similar started last week after dating for 7 months also. Relax and jump back into the pool find someone else to focus on and talk to. In fact it seems like he still hold feelings for this may be the kick he needs. You know jealousy and the could of been me thing. He may even be interested in some else I know it hurts but it is possible. My suggestion is momentarily cut communications and date others. What's meant to be will happen.

  • To get over him,you have to disassociate yourself from him.No more contact for a while.Seeing him,communicating with him will just hurt you more in the end.So no more flirting,talking or associating with him.

    First,you have to grieve.Just cry,let it all out on your own time.Just cry,listen to "Y'alls song" over and over again and reminisce.It may seem silly,but you have to grieve and let out your emotions,when you're all alone and have alone time.Maybe one weekend,you could just stock up on junk food,rent movies and cry.Let I all out on your own.

    Then you're going to probably deny it.It will probably be hard to actually believe that it IS OVER and done with,but it will eventually come to mind.Don't have any contact with him at this point.

    Then you'll FINALLY accept that it is over.

    And you'll move on.

    But go at your own pace.There is no "set" amount of time to get over someone.You have to let it happen at your own speed and pace,don't try to force it,or get it over with,as it will take time.

    It's hard now,but it will get easier down the road
