However, you wouldn't gain anything out of it expect regret.

Keep active! Don't think about your ex! I remember my break up last month, I was crying a lot but I had really awesome friends, and I had lots to do! DIY, gaming, sports, school, ECT. But remember! YOU AIN'T NOBODY'S PLAN B, EITHER THEY CHOOSE YOU OR THEY LOOSE YOU! That's what I think about me. Also try not to get back with you ex even if you still love them, it will make things worse if you break up again.

Eat ice cream & chocolate, hang out with friends, listen to music and write down how you feel about her on a piece of paper and then crumble it up and throw it away. Hope this helps.

it always depends on how true was the love.... I just got out of a relationship and trust me no matter how i try to make myself busy after the work is done i still have that empty feeling in my chest ... he was my first love. i mean how can u get over that right?
but the truth is u never can. u just have to accept the fact that its happened and move on no matter how bad it hurts because something better is always there to come. have trust in god and you will have an amazing life.

Go out everyday until you find a better looking girl who is the complete opposite of ur ex, or u could spend time getting your body into tip top shape, maybe next time they won't want you for ur mind but ur body, some guys don't mind that.

When some hurts you in that way or even in any other way (such a physically), just show them the other cheek for that would be what a true gentleman would do. It teaches the other person that you forgive them and that they are now the ones that should feel guilty and uncomfortable with themselves due to the action of hurting you in any way.

Many years ago I had a broken heart, hurt so bad for months. I was dragging thru life. My very hip male hairdresser said :"It will only hurt until your lips kiss new lips". At the time, I brushed that off: did not even think that way. But, he was right. His words came back after time had marched on & I had just kissed someone else. Damn! Had I understood that it did not have to be your next true love or even lead to a hook up.... it just felt soothing and positive and like a move forward. So, it will only hurt until your lips kiss new lips. Good Luck!

What ever you do, lately you'll remember about it again, so I advice you to think about the reason you broke up, and think that it WAS a story in the past, no matter good or bad and think about future. At first no alcohol ;)

You should stay busy doing positive and productive activities. Jesus stated that it is better to give than to receive and this is a good idea for you. Be giving of yourself to your good friends and family. Also learn from the experience but do not become bitter remember that you want to find true love like in the Song of Solomon in the Bible so look at this as a opportunity to better yourself so that when you find true love you will be ready. What hobbies do you like? Do you have a good exercise routine? What do you like to do? Find happiness in all these things and you will benefit yourself.

Personally its hard to do and at the time of it when your young, you should tell yourself that in the future you will experience stability and love and it will feel right and way beyond this mess. Yes its true. So keep putting your self out there and smile. You can feel sad for 20 seconds but then drop it, thats what I did. Frankly he was rude crude and she can have him.

It depends to how bad it affected you but its better always to meet some other people and try to have some fun however the overall power to overcome this must be within you. You have to find the energy to fight it otherwise it will always affect you.

Cry your heart out, get very, very drunk til you puke/throw up all your heartache away! Get it out of your system. The next day, you'll be good, then re-connect with your friends and family.
