How to Get over a FuckBoy ...

By Natalie

Been there. Done that. And now you're wondering how to get over a fuckboy.

We have ALL been there. At least, many of us. Including myself.

Whether your fuckboy was a friend with benefits or some random hookup or some dude who you thought was into you but sort of kind of was not…

It is okay. You will be OKAY. Rather than focusing on the downfall of things not working out with your dude, your energy should go elsewhere—as cliché as it sounds, you need healthier ways of coping.

Here how to get over a fuckboy and turn this into a positive result:

1 Stop Searching

blond, human hair color, girl, socialite, long hair, One of the best ways to get over a fuckboy is to quick searching. I think this is one of the most common aspects when it comes to “finding the one.” I do not know about you, but times I find myself “looking” for my so called Mr. Right. I've notices that my energy can come off as misleading to a guy. To me, looking seems to be a form of distraction because it is, often, coming off as forced and not natural. It is also okay to not be looking for a relationship and stay single for a bit. Take time for yourself and I find moments when I am focused on, as cliché as it might sound, improving myself as a person more satisfying because it will attract other passionate and driven people, including guys who share similar priorities.

2 Take a Solo Vacay

professional, suit, entrepreneur, white collar worker, businessperson, A trip with the girls is always needed, but most of us know where those are headed when one of the girls in the group is about to get hitched or who has just been dumped—getting laid or some sort of action or flat out partying the nights away. Being alone gives you a chance to recover your own way. There are just moments in life when taking a mini getaway solo is best. You will be amazed with the experiences you will have and discover more about yourself as a person.

3 Write about It

4 Pick up a New Hobby

5 Treat Yo’ Self
