Can't seem to be interested in anyone else... Watch

    I have been in love with someone who didn't feel the same; I haven't seen him for 2 months and I'm still trying to get over him. We've stopped speaking, and he's moved away, and I'm trying to meet new people, but nothing is working.

    I admit that there have been other guys I've fancied a bit, when he was still around ,but they all had girlfriends/weren't available for whatever reason.

    Now, I'm finding it hard to develop an interest in anyone else, and i'm not sure if it's normal. I've met someone who seems nice enough and is very good-looking, but I just feel absolutely nothing.
    I don't feel any sort of excitement whatsoever when he messages me or anything.

    I went on a date with another guy not long ago, and I just didn't feel like seeing him again; I compared him to the guy I'm in love with and he just didn't seem to match up.

    I haven't been truly interested in anyone else since. It's annoying, as I really want to move on and forget my feelings. I'm not speaking to him/seeing him, I'm going on dates etc. but nothing works.. any other advice? Thanks

    Sounds like you're just not ready, and that's okay. If you want to get over him, just go out and do fun things. It doesn't have to be dating; It doesn't have to be sex. If you don't feel like it, you don't need to.

    You'll do fine. Don't try to force something or you'll end up using someone as a rebound, which comes with its whole host of problems.

    Yeah.. I feel a bit silly as it's been 2 months. I won't go into detail but he was sort of a FWB and was confused about his feelings for me..

    Yeah, I think i'm maybe trying to force myself to meet someone else; people are telling me it's the only way I'll get over him etc. but I just can't see myself having feelings for anyone else atm, and ironically the only guy I've really been interested in was this guy's friend, but he has a girlfriend so...

    thanks for the suggestions
