To add insult to injury, i poured my heart out to her, told her how i felt and that if she is "truly happy with her new man, i have to accept that, and if she could honestly imagine a life without me, then fair enough". Her response? To say "i dont know what to say" and change her fb status to "in a relationship" about 12 hours later. Some people just shouldnt be in your life.
If it makes you feel better, the first love i was on about earlier, i was with for 4 years, lived with her. She dumped me for a guy she worked with. That was the worst thing i have ever ever been through. But, my now recent ex came along. Suddenly the world was good again!! Other people will & do come along, i didnt think it would ever happen (and right now im thinking the same, again...), but it does. And thats what i keep telling myself now. Be strong!
I'll give the same advice you hear everywhere else;
Hang out with friends, they're incredible at this point.
Go out, have a drink. You might have heard the saying "a drunk mind speaks a sober heart"? Believe it! When im out with my mates having a good time, she doesn't cross my mind. Ok i then have to deal with waking up broken hearted and hungover, but meh, its worth it!!
Keep busy, i have a new job with great prospects, half way through a masters degree, and hit the gym 3 or 4 times a week. It works.
You will think about your ex a lot, i cant deny that, but, follow the above, and before you know it, you'll be happy again.
If only i could practice what i preach sometimes.
