My first break up was probably the one when I was 16. I left him. It was a typical situation of us being best friends all through our childhood and then he developed a crush on me. I decided to give it a try and to see how we'll be romantically. The transition to best friends to lovers was just too difficult for us, too awkward and 3 months into the relationship he still hasn't even so much as touched my hands! I also lacked the romantic feelings and saw him as a good friend. We didn't really remain very close after that and we moved on. I still have fond memories of him though and the few times we've seen each other after that, there was no resentment.
Break ups are obviously harder where you get dumped. My worst one was last year where I had strong feelings for a guy who led me on for months. The best tips for me was to take time to grief (a week or a month or whatever works for you), to get back in the dating game soon (after 3 months I joined Tinder, went on many dates and ended up meeting the love of my life who I've been with for 9 months now). Also delete their number, delete them off social media and do not talk to them.

Just time. When a breakup is fresh we tend to go overboard with the emotions but then we realize how irrational we were being over time. You just gotta get it out of your system.
