Some of the things you've been taught about breakups are complete lies. That's why Beauty and Tips compiled a list of myths that we should all stop believing. Here they are:

1. Because It Wasn’t “Official” You Can’t Be That Sad

Because It Wasn’t “Official” You Can’t Be That Sad

Even if you never dated a certain someone, you're allowed to be sad over them. That's why crushes are called crushes.

2. To Get over Someone, You Need to Date Someone else

To Get over Someone, You Need to Date Someone else

It's actually better to wait until you're done healing over your last breakup to start dating someone else. You can heal yourself. You don't need another man.

3. You Can Never Get Back with Your Ex

You Can Never Get Back with Your Ex

No, getting back with your ex isn't always a good idea. Of course, sometimes exes can become husbands and wives. Every situation is different.

4. You Can Still Be Friends

You Can Still Be Friends

It's extremely rare for exes to remain friends for years after the breakup. It's possible, but it's not common, so don't beat yourself up if you can't stand being around your ex.

5. You Need Closure

You Need Closure

It's always nice to get closure, but it won't always happen. Sometimes, someone will break up with you without telling you why or giving you a chance to say goodbye. It's just something you'll have to get over.

6. You Shouldn’t Delete Him from Facebook

You Shouldn’t Delete Him from Facebook

Deleting him from your social media won't make you look bitter. It'll actually help you move on. The less often you see his face, the better.

7. You Must Show the World That You’re over Him

You Must Show the World That You’re over Him

You don't have anything to prove. You don't have to go around, pretending that you're happy and flaunting around a new man. Do whatever makes you happy, not what you think will make the people around you happy.

8. It Takes 1/2 the Total Relationship to Get over Them

phenomenon, screenshot, can't, just, shut,

Sorry to break it to you but there's no deadline on getting over a ex. Could be days, years, or never. So don't let anyone tell you that you should be out of the shit-pit called heartbreak by a certain date because it's not true.

9. Ice Cream and Booze Cure HeartbrEak

person,

While it's true there's something therapeutic about eating gallons of ice cream while our tears slowly melt it or getting drunk with the girls, it doesn't cure anything. Only time heals those wounds kitten!

10. Show up Where He is Looking HOt

screenshot, interaction, Let's, friends.,

Seriously whoever thought of this is utterly ridiculous! First off, if you had to search to find him, you'll just end up looking like a cliché crazy ex or worse, a stalker! Instead, why don't you try acting totally cool about it like y'all can still be friends so he doesn't have to contemplate a restraining order.

Are you going through a rough breakup?

I have a similar experience to you guys. Except I wasn't dating the guy. I really liked him for a few months and he was in all of my classes. I felt like we got along really well too. Then I found out...

Please replace that annoying pic on deleting from Facebook. It hurts my eyes and makes me nauseous

There's an ex that it took me a while to get over with. I'm still friends with him. The chemistry never faded and we just genuinely like each other. It's just that the relationship didn't work.

Well she is right, I was with my BF for over 2 years and we broke up for a little while then we got back together and ended up getting married! Anything is possible!

Same here it's been about 7 months and I can feel myself getting better but I still have those days.
