3 Rules for Getting Over Your Ex-Girlfriend

1.Don’t Go On A Rebound

When you’ve just split up from your girlfriend, it can be tempting to try to “replace” her with another. But in the long run and even in the short run this never usually works out well. Right now, you are going through the motions of a split, and that’s not “baggage” that you want to take into a new relationship with someone. So don’t go getting involved emotionally with someone else straight away. Give yourself some time to heal first. When you do, you’ll find that you’re more equipped to go into it instead of just ending up making yourself feel better.

2. Try To Enjoy Yourself

Right now you’re probably feeling like mourning over splitting up your ex-girlfriend, but that doesn’t mean you have to act like you are! Different people deal with things in their own way. But one thing you should try not to do is go into yourself like an introvert would. Instead, be an extrovert and get out there! Meet up with good friends, tell them about your situation, and talk about things you can do together to keep your mind off of her. When you do that, not only will you find lots more things you couldn’t do while you was together, but it will make getting over her that much more easier.

3. Get Rid of or Hide Personal / Sentimental Items

When you’ve just broken up with someone close to you, you’ll probably find yourself looking at things that remind you of them. This could be things like pictures and photos. Even things like clothing and jewelry. What you’ll need to do is to try and hide or even completely get rid off those items that remind you of them. This might be quite hard to do, and you never know, you may end up getting back together so how would you explain throwing those things away for good if you did? For that reason, just box it all and put it under the stairs or in the loft, somewhere out of view. Out of view – out of mind!

1: Get Back in Touch With Your Friends

Now that you’re single again, it’s a great time to get back in touch with your friends. Those friends that you never saw as much since you had a girlfriend. Not only will they likely be happy about this (happy they get to spend time with you again) but a good friend or friends will be supportive and lift you up reminding you of your qualities and strengths.

Just try to stick with good/positive friends as some friends can nurture bad behavior which can result in you feeling worse than wear during this emotional mine trip time you’re going through. It’s true though that good friends can be the best medicine for a broken heart. Healing wounds and offering an emotional crutch to help you get over and through the worst of it all.

Or some totally new activity you’ve been meaning to try out. Whether it’s woodworking, metallurgy, making music, crochet, some sports, collecting things or anything else at all. It doesn’t matter much as long as it takes your mind off things.

3: Rearrange Your Home and or Buy New Clothes

Your home is probably still setup the way it was when you was together right? Well simply moving your home around and rearranging things can help you feel like you’re in a newer place as opposed to the same old digs that remind you of her. This is a particularly good method if you’ve spent a lot of time together at your home. Another thing to try is to go out and buy some new clothes. Your old ones probably remind you of her (didn’t she like wearing that t-shirt or sweater of yours a lot?) Getting a new wardrobe will not only make you feel more confident in yourself, but act as another way to take your mind off her. By rearranging things around and by getting new clothes, you’ll get a breath of fresh air and a new start!
