Ok so I was at College yesterday and I felt like something was missing. I saw a guy and he looked similar to my ex so much I pictured it was him. I imagined the guy in his clothes and it brought back all our memories. I just had to exuse myself to the toilet because I needed to cry. I've never felt this way about anyone before. How do I stop this? He's interfering with my mind, my life and I don't know what to do. I don't even look for relationships with guys because I want to wait for him and I know that's stupid because he doesn't love me. I just don't understand my brain.
I feel so damn weak when I think of him because he probably doesn't give a shit about me.

These are completely normal feelings to have after a breakup from someone who you really cared about. Time really is the only thing that can help.
You're at this stage now where any little thing will remind you of him and keep bringing back that hollow feeling inside you. You will get to a time where he's just a distant memory and the thought of him doesn't even phase you, trust me.
Until then, all I can suggest is focus on other things and embrace life. Focus on yourself, you're awesome. Go outside, exercise, go for a walk, watch your favorite movies, listen to your favorite music. Just try to overcome the sadness and be present in the current moment and not the past.
I remember when I was getting over my worst breakup when I was 18, I look back on it now with really fond memories because I learnt a lot about myself through that experience.
I watched 500 Days of Summer after that breakup, wasn't a bad movie.
Hope you feel better soon!1

Breakups take time and lots of it. Only with lots of time will the memories fade. You need to be patient on the road to heartbreak recovery. Yes you will at times make progress and then fall again. But then you pick yourself up and with time, the pain will again start to fade.1
