So it's been a bit over 2 weeks since me and my boyfriend split and with the heartbreaking message of him not wanting to be friends, I'm completely alone. I've cried, given into the negative feelings that have been piling up, I've been angry, furious, vengeful and had downright devious thoughts but when they subsided, nothing was left but longing and hurt. I miss having someone to talk to. I miss his voice and everything about him but I know it's over. I know I've lost and I know I need to move on, however I have no desire to find someone else. I don't believe in the whole "he wasn't right for you if you broke up" - feelings aren't based solely on who you can be with for the longest time - sometimes the person who may be right for you isn't the one you can be with and I know and believe that he was the one for me. I just can't be with him. However what I can do is move on with my life but I'm not sure how. I don't have any friends, like at all - I have people I talk to online but it's slightly different. I haven't been "out" with anyone since February and I only leave the house for walks, work, shopping etc. But I'm always on my own. I'm kinda the odd one, I haven't had any friends since 2010. How can I move on when I don't have anyone to talk to? Making friends isn't easy and I'm just told to go out and make some. "Go to public places" etc doesn't work.

Sorry man, break ups are tough and emotionally taxing. Personally i was so emotionally drained after my last break up and what helped me get through it was i set out projects to get me busy and productive. My life consisted of these things for about 6 months after i broke up:
5am - 6:30 am = crossfit (gym)
8am-5pm = work
5-7pm = shower, eat
Saturday: 9am - 11pm crossfit
Saturday --> Sunday = remodel my office room.
sprinkle in time to figure out my new career path while mtn biking / tennis.
I just made my life "busy" doing things i felt are positive things for me.
Break ups are so difficult because there's so many questions that fill your head as far as "what's right, was he the one? did i mess up? did i quit? should i hate him? how do i move on?" Your self esteem takes a toll and it's all no fun but:
i know that my office room needs updating, and i know for a fact exercise is a good thing.
This is what helped me.2
