1 Don’t Badmouth Him
2 Don’t Badmouth His New Girlfriend
3 Return His Stuff
4 Don’t Brag about Your New Boyfriend
5 Don’t Stalk Him
6 Don’t Make Your Friends Pick Sides
7 Don’t Argue in Public
8 Don’t Try to Get Revenge
Revenge doesn't taste as sweet as everyone says. You don't want your anger to take control of you, or you'll end up regretting your actions.
9 Break up with Him in Person
If you're the one ending the relationship, make sure you do it face-to-face. Texting him is too impersonal.
10 Don’t Run the Other Way when You See Him
11 Never Drunk Text Him
You don't want to seem desperate by getting wasted and sending him texts about how much you miss him, or how much you hate him. Keep your phone far away if you're going to be consuming any alcohol.
12 Don’t Talk about Him Online
Don't make vague statuses about him. Don't make statuses that are blatantly about him, either.
13 Don’t Rebound Unless You Really Want to
Don't sleep with a stranger to make him jealous. Unless you genuinely want to make out with a new guy, there's no reason to do it.
14 Don’t Use Drugs or Alcohol to Cope
15 Don’t Force a Friendship
16 Don’t Try to Get Back Together
17 Be Happy That He’s Happy
If you follow this advice, your ex won't have anything bad to say about you. Do you think you've handled your past breakups in a mature way?
