Knowing how to get over a guy can be simple and fun, if you know how things really work in love and figure out how to confuse your heart into having a happy time, until it forgets all about your ex boyfriend.

Here’s the introduction that you just have to read, how to get over a boyfriend, before you start reading these pointers below.

And if it’s a crush you’re dealing with, and not an ex boyfriend, read the feature on is it a crush or limerence?

#8 Use your freedom

When you’re in a relationship, you end up doing a lot of things together as a couple.

While this is a good thing, you also end up missing out on a lot of things that you enjoy. You may like watching a good play, or perhaps a concert, but your boyfriend may not have liked them much.

So now that you’re all alone and single, do all the things that you’ve never been able to do.

Watch the movies that you love, read books, go online for a fun flirty chat with someone, call up guys that you used to have a crush on, meet new people, and do just about anything that you love. [Read: How to flirt by touching]

The world is your oyster, and there are so many fun things and so many cute things waiting just for you. Why miss it all out by moping and crying in a dark corner. If you really want to know how to get over a guy, go on and enjoy the world and everything it has to offer, and you’ll see how happy a place the world can be!

#9 Don’t call him

Now, if you’ve been following all the earlier points, you’d see your whole life turn around in less than a couple of weeks.

You’d find yourself happier and so much more fun. But that’s not all. The scary part comes when you’re alone, even if just for a couple of hours. That’s the time when you end up thinking about your ex boyfriend. As hard as it may seem, don’t call him. Each time you feel like calling him, call another guy who likes you, or who flirts with you. Within a few minutes, you’d forget all about your ex boyfriend. [Read: How to text flirt with a friend]

By calling your ex boyfriend, you’re only going to make yourself look weak and you’ll also give him a chance to smirk to himself and stomp you all over.

You should never let that happen because that will only shatter your heart even more. So the next time you think about calling your ex boyfriend, do something else to keep your mind occupied.

#10 Party hard!

If you want to get over a guy, there’s nothing like clubbing and partying with a great looking crowd to get you out of the dumps. Gather a group of your friends and paint the town red.

Go to a happening joint and dance like you’ve never danced when you were a couple. See a cute guy? Make a flirty pass at him. Laugh it off with your friends. Have fun, and have loads of it. Just a pointer here though. When you’re partying, don’t ever get drunk. You have to avoid getting drunk at all cost because a break up and booze can be a lethal combination.

You may end up spending the night with a guy you don’t like, or even if that doesn’t happen, the hangover can make you feel terrible in the morning.

#11 Have a rebound relationship

If you’ve done all of these earlier points and still feel heartbroken, then perhaps, you need the mother of all pointers to get over an ex boyfriend. You need a rebound relationship. [Read: How to get a guy to like you]

Now many people would advise you against it, but we say otherwise. Most girls avoid falling for a rebound relationship because they assume they’ll fall head over heels in love again with a new guy. But hey, if true love has to happen, it will! And if it’s not, you don’t care. Just have fun. Rebound relationships can rekindle that lovey feeling, and you’d end up forgetting all about the break up in the first place. [Read: Is he the guy for you?]

But always remember that this is a rebound relationship. If you have to, you can also tell the guy that you’re not looking for something serious and just want to have some fun for a few weeks or a month. Now that should clear that up!

#12 Be the winner of the game

Now we’ll tell you the final thing you have to know about break ups and ex boyfriends, if you really want to know the secret behind how to get over a guy. You have to remember this one because no one will ever tell you this secret truth.

The winners in love win. The losers in love suffer. [Read: Things to know before thinking of dating your ex again]

Do you understand this? Well, we’ll make it simpler. After you break up, if you ask your boyfriend to get back with you, or if you call your boyfriend over the phone and cry for hours, it makes you look weak. And he will never want you back again because he knows that you still crave for him.

Knowing you’re so madly in love with him makes him stronger, and gives him the strength to move on. When you’re the one who’s pleading, it makes you weak, and makes you fall in love with your boyfriend even more!

The person who’s having more fun after a break up has the advantage and will get over the break up way faster than the person who’s crying and moping. It’s a psychological advantage. [Read: How to get over a broken heart]

So as long as you keep a happy face and have a lot of fun, and never let him know that you’re hurting inside, you’ll be able to move on in a matter of weeks!
