Heartsick over the love of your life walking out on you? We’ll help you get over her with these 10 ways to get over a breakup.
1. Go Out with Your Buddies and Meet Someone New
There are plenty of other fish in the sea, but that means nothing to you because you like women. Well, there are a lot of women too, just not truckloads that want to meet up with you this Friday. Get out there anyways. You don’t have to act like you’re trying to find “the one”. Just make a friend. You may be surprised to find out that many women too have experienced heartbreak and would like to share their insights over a few drinks. Platonic drinks, of course.
2. Take a Walk
This step takes no prior planning, so it’s right up your alley. Just be brave, open the door, and start walking. Walking is refreshing for the mind, the body and, most importantly, that broken little heart of yours.
3. Stop Staring at Her Facebook Page and Crying
This is a no-brainer. You need to let her go. It’s nothing personal (or maybe it is? I don’t know). You just grew apart or whatever. Regardless of whether you want to remain friends or not, you need to pretend she never existed for a little while. Dwelling on her pictures and all the things you miss about her will only hold you back from getting yourself out of this funk.
4. Adopt a Realistic Exercise Regimen
You don’t necessarily have to flip out and become a fitness nut in spandex who is constantly Instagramming pics of your rocking bod (though it wouldn’t hurt for your ex to catch a glimpse of how well you’re doing). Just throw on the boombox and start creating the new you. You’ll find out that getting a little exercise does wonders for clearing the head. Plus, you’ll gain new energy to face the world again as a handsome one-man wrecking crew.
5. You’re Crying Again
Okay fine, let it out. We sort of knew this would happen. There, there. There is nothing wrong with crying. Just don’t do it in front of too many people…or your dad.
What did you think I said? Masterdating isn’t just a cool, new fad. People have been dating themselves for centuries, and sometimes even taking themselves home at the end of the night. Go to dinner and a movie. You’ll finally be able to see the movie you actually wanted to see for a change.
7. Do Something to Help the World
Ladies love a philanthropist; not that you really care, you altruistic son of a gun. You just care about the world. So go join a cause, help at the soup kitchen, or donate your time volunteering with children. Believe it or not, people will value you. Specifically, people who aren’t your ex.
8. Read a Book that has Nothing to Do with Romance
Picked up a book lately? Probably not, since you’ve been spending all your time trying to fix your wreck of a relationship. Meanwhile, the world around you has been growing highly sophisticated. You have plenty of time now to catch up on new biographies, science writing, or whatever your heart desires. You might discover your next passion! Just try to stay away from real passion for a while.
9. Learn to Dance
Maybe you never thought about it, but dancing is a combo-pack. You get exercise, you learn how to look cool in public, and you meet new people while performing the intimate art form of “the dance”. Get out your jiggling shoes, join a class, and pretty soon you won’t be able to keep the ladies off you.
10. Look at Yourself in the Mirror and Laugh Because You’re Totally Over Her
You haven’t smiled in a while, but look, there’s that grin we all love! Yes, you’re surely over her now and there’s nothing she can do about it. High Five!
