So your life is in pieces and the person you loved more than anything in the world doesn't even want to be with you?
Breaking up with someone isn't easy, there's no way of getting around that. But there are a few things that can make all that pain and anguish pass by a little faster.
How to get over a break up in 3 fairly simple steps
Revenge probably won't fix the situation, it might not even make you feel that much better... but the sense of justice you'll get from seeing someone that made you hurt getting a taste of his or her own medicine might just be worth it.
Just make sure you don't get carried away and follow the path of a certain Mrs. Catherine Kieu.
After her husband filed for divorce, she decided to poison him, tie him to the bed, cut off his penis with a 10-inch kitchen knife, and throw it down the garbage disposal chute. Ouch!
2) Join a Muay-Thai class
Not only will this aggressive form of Thai kickboxing be a great way to vent some anger, but you will also be working on that bod and looking better than you ever did. Your ex will be kicking himself when he sees what he's missing!
3) Find someone else
Yes, yes... easier said then done! But the truth is, the only way you'll ever really get over an ex is when you start to realise how much better off you are with someone that truly cares for you and treats you how you deserve to be treated.
Statistically speaking, your chances of finding a future-partner to mate with have never been higher. Just think about that.
My final advice for when you're ready to move on is that there are plenty of places you can go to meet new people.
Why not take up a new social activity like doing a language course or making pottery. Even going for a casual drink might be the first step to something more...
Just make sure that, when your friends invite you for a drinking session to help you get over your ex, that you're actually ready to lose all inhibitions courtesy of Mr. Jack Daniels or Mrs. Gin and diet tonic with a wedge of lime.
Because, whilst your friends have the best intentions and think your girly night-out will play like an episode of Sex and the City:
There's always the outside chance that all that drinking will get you obsessing about your ex and all that could have been...
