How do I get over my ex?

It's been over a year since my ex and I broke up. She was the best girlfriend anyone could ask for. 2 month later she got a boyfriend. During our relationship she told me that she would love me forever and would never break up with me. Now that she has a boyfriend, I think back and remember all the good times we shared. Everyday during school when walking to my next class I see them together and notice how much he appreciates her. I wish I could get her back, but the possibilities of getting her back are 1 in 1 trillion. I think about her almost everyday, wishing that she'll give me another chance, but now it's too late. She's deeply in love with him and I have realized that I have no chance what so ever. Any ideas on how to get over her?

I'm sorry. I know the feeling.

Firstly, don't ever expect to be with someone forever. To get over her you have to realize you can't get her back. It seems like you've done that. Next you have to focus on other things. Simple as that: look at your future, not your past. The only thing stopping you is your own desire.

find someone better. like, you don't even need to try that hard. or, fill your time with something else, so that you don't even have time to care. most people do this by working out, which can also help in certain aspects of 'getting over someone'

Same thing happened to me but I had two years with my boyfriend.. And once we broke up and after he had said I was the only one he forgot about me in like 6 months. Now he has 2 years with his new girlfriend and I can't forget about him. I suggest you forget about her because its hurts to be like this

You're torturing yourself by reminiscing. I understand it is hard, however, the more days that go by the more space there is between you and the less mentally involved you have to be. Have you tried finding something you didn't or couldn't do while you were with her or after the breakup that is just pure fun for you? Everyday we wake up we are given the opportunity to live. Don't let anyone be an anchor to your progress in life. Whether we like it or not, change, pain and discomfort are part of growth and strength. I am going through a breakup myself. And while this is easy to say to someone, I do struggle with practicing it. It hurts and I'm afraid but I know that it will lead to something better. I did not come this far in life to fall on my face and you shouldn't either. The best part is one day you will be able to help sometime when they are down about the same thing and every time you do, you believe what you say a little more and you get out of your head.

To get over her begin by keeping yourself occupied with positive things and stop thinking about the past. In addition, participate in extracurricular activities at school and try new and interesting things. You should also get rid of all the things that remind you of her and avoid the places where you can meet. Time is the ultimate healer when it comes to matters of the heart and you will heal at one point.
