How do I deal with the feeling of complete and total loss after a breakup? I don't miss him; I miss being in love. What can I do to help?

I'm demisexual, so I don't fall for anyone much. Even my relationships outside of dating are typically a little aloof sometimes, but when I get close to someone I get really attached. Losing a person I've gotten close to hurts not because I miss them, but I feel like a level of joy is gone and I know it'll be forever till I find it again.

  • That's tough... Confusing Feelings... Just remind yourself it wasn't meant to be and try to distract yourself
