So I broke up with my boyfriend about 2 weeks ago, and I was happy I did it at the time because he was very controlling and I didn't feel the right way about him etc.
But now I'm starting to feel really lonely, I don't have many friends at all and I miss the chats and laughs we used to have. But I know I don't really miss him, it's the company that I miss.
I have Aspergers (autism) and also find it hard to adapt to change, so I'm finding it tricky at the moment. Does anyone have any advice? How do I think of the bad things he did instead of focusing on the good things?

I don't know how badly your autism effects your social life but from my experience and those around me the best thing you can do is take every opportunity to hang out with your friends. Even if it's just one, you'll meet people through them and then meet more people and soon enough have new people around you that you can draw close to again. Obviously you will have to take some time for yourself, don't dive into something again. Breakups are hard and you need healing time. But it's a really good way of keeping busy, getting your mind off things and meeting potential new best friends and stuff. I did this last summer and now I'm more social than ever.
