I made a thread on this asking if long-distance relationships worked. Since most likely such arrangement will not work, I was then wondering what is the best way to forget about her and move on. The issue lies in the fact that I have already tried doing so for 2 years and, whilst I convinced myself I did for months, effectively it was not the case.

Oof I’m in a similar situation rn but it must be so hard being long distance. I don’t really know any other ways other than occupying yourself with hobbies or if you really know you won’t get together maybe eventually try talking to someone new?? Because if it goes well your focus might shift to them??

OP... What you have is oneitis. It's hard, and it's painful and I am sorry you're experiencing it.

But it isn't real.

What you need to realize is that this isn't about her. She's a normal person like any other normal person. This is about you. You are putting someone on an unhealthy pedestal as a means of protecting yourself from having to put yourself out there, which is scary and will result in you getting shot down. It will be uncomfortable and emotionally dangerous.

And it will still be better than being where you are now.
