    Ok we had it coming - it was a mutual agreement, and we're still friends but I still can't help being

    I knew him for 11 months, and we were friends for 5 out of those months so it's not actually all too bad, so why does it still feel crappy :/

    Because you had a good connection, now you cant stop thinking about what could have happened if you had stayed together for longer. Try not to think about what you did have but what you have now which is the most important thing for you right now.
    you should start dating again to take your mind off your sadness.

    Aw thanks for asking how I am, so sweet I'm OK, just working hard and doing a bit of volunteer work at a library in order to get my foot in the door, and working in sales.

    So not awesome! Obviously. But I'm not too bad apart from the split, how's your life going? Hope postgrad uni is going well for you.

    Wow what an amazing idea. Why not just start shooting heroin as well, that takes the pain away too.
    Erm what?



    Yes because dating is exactly the same as a drug that makes you develop a crippling addiction and is more than capable of ruining your life

    This is like the worst attempt to be funny I've ever seen

    I'm sorry it doesn't meet your standards. I don't think getting into a new relationship is a good way of coping with the breaking up of an old one tbh.

    Ah, I thought you'd got the job as a librarian. Still, kudos for you for not giving up on that one.

    As for me, I'm not a graduate! Never went to uni! But life is good. Have an interview tomorrow for a new job which pays a fair bit more! Woohoo! :woo:

    That was what I was thinking...!
    Dating doesn't mean getting into a relationship... It's about meeting new people, not falling in love or having sex with someone else to get over them.

    Okay, well you could just go out with friends. Anything to have fun and realise you can have fun without the ex.

    Meeting new people is the best way, Trust me. I have done it before, and it helps a lot.

    Oh congrats! You must be pretty excited, getting a dream job

    The job I got was part-time and I bought a house, so I need a full-time one. So I'm still looking!

    I have an interview today for a library job, so I'll see how I go and hopefully will take my mind off things.

    Aw I'm sorry OP.
    I just broke up with someone too, and even though you expect it, still hurts! Just keep yourself busy i've found is best. See your friends lots and it gradually gets better! Keep smilingggg

    hi im sorry to hear about that, i know exactly how you feel, my boyfriend of 20 months and recently broke up mutually because we simply never got to see each other regularly because of our different schedules etc.. we are still friends and chat and stuff but it feels really strange that he is not my boyfriend anymore. this is slightly crazy but although i have gotten over him and have started to look casually at other guys again, if i were to go out with someone else i would feel bad like i was cheating or sth! something tells me i don't think i am ready for another guy yet! haha. i found that the best thing to do was to let all of your emotion out at once. i mean all of it. cry scream kick etc .. whatever is best for you, and then stop and never cry about it again, just to get it out of your system. I havn't cried since that and i feel so much better!
