How do I stop loving my Ex Boyfriend.

we broke up about two weeks ago because of the long distance thing. we just graduated college last year, so we're pretty young. he said, that maybe it would be a good thing to break up and not be so seriously committed so soon. we've tried taking a break, and an open relationship, but obviously that just lead to jealously. so now we're done.
the problem is, I'm still totally in love with him. we still talk almost everyday, and it's just a little strange. I feel really bad loving someone so much who doesn't even want me anymore, and I just want to get over him. What can I do?

i lost my ex 10 years ago, and i still love her. and I always will, however, i am happily married, and i love my wife more than anything else, including my ex... when they say you can only love one person, its not true, the heart is more complex than that.. do you love only your mom? only your dad? brothers? sisters? ect? just accept that he is gone, and move on with your life... that is why it is "acceptance."

As hard as it may feel, you need to stop all contact for an extended length of time, long enough for you to get over the intense initial pain, and long enough for you to begin to build a life without him. I'm sorry, I know it hurts, there's just no way around that :(

i have asked him to stop talking to me, but he said no, because he likes talking to me. He doesn't like to talk about himself very much, like, strangely doesn't talk about himself, but he likes to ask about everyone else. which is cool, because I guess that's why other people like him so much, because let's face it, people like to talk about themselves.
but he talks about himself to me. because he knows i care the most about him, and he can tell me anything. and he doesn't have that with anyone else, and I don't have that with anyone else either.
cutting him off would be a major loss for the both of us.

Time will heal you and with time it will become easier for you. Heal yourself before starting another relationship.

Stop talking to him and you will forget. Go out with other people, don't wait.

Think of everything you don't like about him and let that fester until you don't even like him.
