Breakups are hard, especially the healing process. You are feeling a million different emotions at once and don’t really know how to deal with them.

First, you CANNOT be friends with your ex! You need time to get over him. Being friends will just be confusing and not help you to heal.

With that said, you should block your ex from your Facebook and delete him from your phone. This way you’re not tempted to contact your ex or look at their page and see what he or she is up to.

Keep yourself busy so you don’t think about the other person or drive yourself crazy thinking about why you broke up.

Don’t lock yourself in your room and listen to sad country music or watch “The Notebook.” Go out with your friend and have fun!

Don’t immediately post what you’re doing on Facebook. Someone your ex knows is bound to report your activities and make it seem as if you are trying to make your ex jealous.

Working out and eating chocolate will also make you feel better. Chocolate releases endorphins in the brain that make you feel good. What is a better medicine than chocolate? Try dark chocolate – it’s healthier.

Exercise also releases endorphins. Once you start seeing the changes to your body, your self-esteem will improve, and you’ll feel ready to jump back into the dating game.
