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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It Takes 1/2 the Total Relationship to Get over Them
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.
Ice Cream and Booze Cure HeartbrEak
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!
Show up Where He is Looking HOt
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.
