As macho as men portray themselves to be, breaking up can really hurt, and especially so if she’s decided to leave and walk all over you on her way out.
Figuring out how to get over an ex girlfriend can be bearable and even fun, if you follow these suggestions on getting over an ex girlfriend.
#1 Avoid her and her friends
Now we know you’re hurting. And you long to touch her again, or spend a few moments with her.
But you really need to stay away from her, unless you want to lose more of that tiny bit of respect she may have for you.
Women love humiliating exes and treating spurned lovers like stray dogs. *gasp!*
So for your own good, avoid her territory unless you want to be shooed away loudly in front of everyone else.
And even if your ex girlfriend has good looking friends with whom you’re close and rather friendly, stay away from them too. You can hit on them later, but after many months.
Until then, they’re still her loyal friends and will be influenced by her side of the story.
#2 Delete her from your life
If your ex girlfriend is connected to you in any manner, via cell phone, facebook, or whatever else, erase all signs of her existence. Being a man, you’re expected to play nice and avoid confrontation with a girl, and that can be rather difficult when she starts to play her post break-up games.
Girls usually pretend to be overly happy and celebrate their new found single social lives by plastering their facebook walls with party photos and skimpy vacation shots with other guys. If you want to get over your ex girlfriend, you really need to avoid seeing any of this. [Read: Should you stay in contact with your ex?]
As much as you know this ploy, it can make your blood boil and you may lose your cool and start an all-out public social network confrontation. And again, she gets the chance to shoo you away like a stray dog on a social network or via texting while her friends are around. So stay away from unnecessary humiliating confrontations.
Seriously, your relationship is history. Both of you broke up. The process of healing is all about you, not her and not both of you as a couple. Worry about getting over it, and don’t waste your time trying to prove a stupid point to your ex girlfriend.
#3 Call up your crushes
This is definitely great if you want to get over your ex girlfriend. Now all men know how exciting it is to have a great conversation with a crush. Now the feelings may not be mutual and your crush may not fall in love with you just because you’re single and ready to mingle. [Read: How to get a girl to like you]
But when you do mention how devastated, broken hearted and vulnerable you are, there’s a good chance your crush would soften up and try to make you feel better. And hey, getting your crush to smooth talk you and call you all kinds of cute names is definitely a turn on that would make you forget your bleeding ex girlfriend, wouldn’t you say?
And there’s a slight hope that your crush may actually end up liking you as she tries to nurse you back to a good heart. After all, women do end up falling for a guy who’s all vulnerable and helpless. Awww…
#4 Admire other women
As men, we know that women are definitely the most beautiful things ever to grace planet earth. Heck, they’re even the reason for global warming!
So admire them. Stare at a girl’s curves as she moves up the escalator and look at her long legs as she walks past you. You could never do that when you were with your girlfriend, could you? [Read: How to stare at a girl’s cleavage]
And start comparing every gorgeous girl you see with your girlfriend, and start remembering all her flaws. Pretty soon, you’ll remember how ugly she really looks. [Read: How to flirt by touching]
#5 Date other girls
There’s nothing that can lift a man’s spirits after a break up than dating other good looking girls. Try hooking up some pity dates with your crushes or try and meet someone new for a date. Come on now, you know you can get any girl if you try hard enough, right? So make that move, Casanova, and make it good. [Read: How to tell if a girl likes you]
#6 Sleep with someone else
For men, sleeping with a new girl has a lot of stimulating effects that can help ease the mind and induce a temporary amnesia when it comes to thoughts of an ex girlfriend. Do you know of a girl who fancies you? Or do you have a friend who wants to get into your sheets? It doesn’t matter who it is as long as you get some naughty business done with another girl. You’ll forget what your ex girlfriend’s name was, the minute your sex buddy screams your name! [Read: How to have sex with a friend]
#7 Spend time on the internet
Do whatever you like on the net, watch a few *good movies* and admire their assets, read trivia, or just watch a few webcams with girls who love taking clothes off. What you do doesn’t even matter, just as long as you’re not feeling lonely when you’re alone at home.
Always know that the thoughts of your girlfriend would come to your mind only when you’re feeling lonely or depressed. As long as you avoid these lonely moments, you’ll be a happy young man surrounded by beautiful company, wherever you are.
#8 Hang out with your friends
Spending time with friends and bonding with the boys can be a lot of fun and can help a lot when it comes to getting over your ex girlfriend. Bitch about your ex girlfriend, talk about other women, and boast about the other girls you’ve been meeting. You’ll find your ego swelling and your pain diminishing in no time.
#9 Don’t ever be alone
If you really want to get over your ex girlfriend, you probably know this already. While blank walls and empty cans of beer can seem weirdly fascinating after you stare at it for a good half an hour, you need to remember that thinking about your girlfriend only makes you feel more miserable and weak. And for all you know, she’s probably having a great time with a new guy.
Thinking about her will make you want to call her or meet her. And we know how that’ll end, it’ll make you look stupid, weak, and again, like a stray dog on the street.
Try to keep yourself occupied all the time, and even when you’re all alone, speak to a girl over the phone or get busy on the internet with some gorgeous looking girls. [Read: How to text flirt]
Now we’re not saying this is the nicest way to get over an ex girlfriend, but we’re definitely saying that this is the easiest and most fun way to getting over an ex girlfriend. [Read: How to get over a broken heart]
