Getting over a woman after a breakup can be a challenging process for any man. However, moving on is essential for healing and his well-being. Unfortunately, there isn’t a manual or directions for getting over a breakup because it’s such a personal challenge. One of the first and biggest steps he should take is to allow himself to feel and process the emotions that come with the breakup, such as sadness, anger, or confusion. Suppressing these feelings will only prolong the healing process. Another important step is to seek support from friends, family, or a therapist. Talking things out can also be immensely helpful during this time. Finally, engaging in self-care activities, such as exercise, hobbies, or pursuing personal goals, can boost his self-esteem and provide a positive distraction from the pain of the breakup.
One commenter posted, “Time, friends, and soul searching, but mostly time. There is no set time limit on how long this will take you to get over her, and as awful as it is to hear, it just takes time.”
There Are Other People
A second commenter said, “Know that there’s more to life than just one person. Just because it didn’t work out with her does not mean you won’t meet someone incredible.”
A third commenter added, “Heck if I know. I’ve seen my ex. We split up two years ago, twice in the past week, after not seeing her for months. All the same feelings came back. If you find out, please let me know.”
Find A New Crush
This user commented, “Do you love her? If yes, you must wish her happiness in her life, with or without you. If you do not wish her happiness without you, you do not love her like you think you do. Love is selfless. If it’s not selfish. Go crush on someone else.
Don’t Obsess Over It
This poster stated, “Pretend like you are over it. Stop talking about it. Stop obsessing about it. Stop checking her Facebook wall and reading old messages. Stop griping to friends about how you feel. Even if you’re still thinking about it, cutting down on outward actions will make you stop thinking about it. Eventually.
Recall The Bad Times
A top-liked comment said, “Whenever you find yourself thinking about all the good times you had, try to think about the BAD times. Think about why you’re not together. Think about how there is no possible series of events that will end with you back together and happy. Think about how hopeless and pointless it would be.”
Do What Makes You Happy
One user shared, “I’m just some guy and by no means the right person to help you through this. But you gotta look out for yourself first! You are the most important thing in your life. Forget relationships for a while. Focus on you. Do what makes you happy. The rest can come later.”
This person added, “You have to force yourself into social gatherings. It will get less awkward. But if you just keep saying, “I’m shy and introverted and socially awkward,” as some sort of label with finality, yeah, you’re going to stay stuck. Also, being introverted has nothing to do with social skills. You can be introverted and have incredible social skills.”
Delete Their Number
A poster commented, “For god’s sake….remove her number from your phone so you don’t drunk text. I can’t tell you how much heartache I’ve had because of this.”
Don’t Remain Friends
Someone said, “When you break up, DO NOT BE FRIENDS WITH THEM. Do not take any kindness from them, help, or anything. No contact means no contact.
Focus On The Future
A person mentioned, “I focus on the future. I know I’ll find someone else, and I will laugh again. I remind myself that I’ve saved myself from a lot of pain. I will remain civil and not give her a reason to hate me because we both deserve a nice ending for what we had. And never beg or plead with her to get back together.”
Occupy Your Mind
A user stated, “Occupy your mind. Go out with friends, pick up a new hobby, volunteer somewhere. Literally, do anything you can to keep yourself from thinking about “the good times.” When you sit and dwell, you’ll only be saddened. But when you don’t have the time to think about what has passed, you’ll find yourself able to be stronger on your own.
This poster shared, “Working out a lot helps. I couldn’t sleep very much, so I went to a 24-hour gym and would get hopped up on endorphins.”
A top-liked comment said, “I found the heartbreak motivating. Whenever I felt I was past my point of exhaustion, I was motivated beyond belief whenever I remembered my ex. And not in an “I’ll win you back” way. It was more like an “I can’t wait for you to see me looking fantastic, having the time of my life with someone equally fantastic.”
Work On You
This user said, “Take the hurt and the emotions and channel them into self-improvement. It’s really the only thing you can do.”
Find A Hobby
Finally, a poster recalled, “I picked up woodworking and started playing guitar again. When she moved out, I had a lot of extra room, got a motorcycle, and took up sport shooting. I felt amazing between building furniture, shooting, hanging out with friends, working out, taking bike rides, and working. Also, it made me really attractive to other women for some reason…the complete opposite of what I thought would happen with a divorce.”
