It's a long story, basically I broke up with the love of my life a little over a year ago. I still don't feel even tiny bit better about losing her. But I don't think about her as much anymore. But here is the problem: when we met, I was basically nothing, just a kid with absolutely no life. She showed me so much in this world, she showed me what life can really be like. And that's what I started living now, and everything reminds me of her.
I didn't have car at that time and we were driving together and she taught me how to drive and let me practice a lot, but now I have a car and just daily driving it reminds me of her. Also gas stations, since the only time I ever really started going to gas stations was with her and all gas stations look pretty much the same, it also reminds me of her.
Also coffee, she got me into drinking it, so now I drink it every day and it also reminds me of her.
The list goes on, simple things like: parking stations, supermarkets, even elevators, always make me think of her. Furthermore airports, because I flew over to her city to spend time with her. And those typical looking guys from US customs.
Not to mention seeing another couple together.
Also anything related to the US. Because I am from Canada.. And I went to visit her in US. There are many typical differences that you can see between the countries and today I went to Seattle and it all came back to me again, even though she was from Chicago, but it's also US.
So how am I supposed to forget about her if she has been a huge part of my life?

Maybe you need to think of things in their general sense. Going to the gas station, drinking coffee, going to supermarkets,---are all things that people do every day. Maybe you need to turn down the value you place on these things. Tell yourself that they are things that millions of people do every day, not something unique to her. While it is quite obvious that you still have feelings for this girl and after reading your comments below, I agree with Trinahar, if you do want to try to get her back eventually, you need to let her go for a while. Let yourself mature and grow up. Put yourself out there, maybe even consider dating someone new. You seem to be idealizing her and you may find that the reality of being back with her may not be all you think it's going to be. So, try to get out and date some different people before you go back--if you go back. Make some new memories and know that you're not always going to feel like this.0
