*(Via iDateDaily) – How did it happen?  After a wonderful weekend spent with his friends and intimate moments, he tells you he needs a break. Or even worse that it’ s over.  You may see it as a blessing or the worst moment of your life.

So how do you survive?

Keep Busy – Distract yourself by beginning a new hobby or joining a gym.  You could get fit and fabulous at the same time.  You’ll also have the chance to make new friends.  After one particularly bad break up, I remember going through all my phone contacts and making personal phone calls (not texting) to all my friends.  It took a while, but I set up my social calendar for the next three months and made the time to actually talk to those friends I hadn’t seen for a long time.

Distance yourself – delete his number, put away old photos, take yourself off his Facebook page.  If you are one of those people who tend to daydream about what might have been, or have fantasies of him secretly running back to you, then you need to get him out of your head. If he’s not in front of you every time you open your computer or phone, he won’t be a reminder to you.  Later on, you two might begin contact again, but now is not the time.  You need to heal your heart first.

Don’t rebound – Rushing head first into a new relationship while you are still thinking about your ex all the time does not do anyone any good.  I had a male friend who did just that, but unfortunately, his ex was still on his mind when it came to being intimate in the bedroom.  At the crucial moment, he called out his ex’s name!  That relationship didn’t last long.
