Is this a healthy way to get over him? watch

    I was seeing a guy before xmas for a couple of months, we were exclusive but not officially gf and bf. During uni xmas break, he got distant and strange and has been ever since, so I've been mentally trying to seperate my feelings from him for the last month.
    Only a week ago, I finally put pressure on him as to why and what was happening over message but he read it and left it. (he was 'too busy' to meet all the time so I had to do it that way). So I took that as the end of our relationship and decided it's time to move on because he has been stringing me along for nearly 2 months now.

    However, I'm finding that I'm wanting to present my life as being 'really good' and 'positive' over social media, just in case he see's it. I'm making myself go out more and, to be honest, making myself have fun for the sake of showing him I'm fine without him. Yes, I feel better for it, but I'm not sure it's good for me to be doing it solely to prove a point to him.
    I know it's early days and I'll probably start to forget about him more and more, but surely it's a good thing that I'm going out in the day, dressing nice, and socialising more? I'm hoping that eventually I'll still want to do this through enjoyment rather than as a point-prover, but eveerytime I know that he's seen it, it makes me do it ever more so.. :/

    Doing it purely to show him that your life is fine without him I wouldn't say is the best way to get over it.
    However if going out and dressing your mind takes your mind off him then it's fine.
