How to Get Over a Break Up in 4 Simple Steps

Jul 23, 2008
No one likes to be on the wrong side of a breakup. That much is obvious. There's no doubt you're going through a difficult time right now, but there are ways through it -- and we're going to cover those now.

In fact, by the time you finish reading this story, you're already going to be feeling better. So let's get started.

How to Get Your Ex Back (If You Want To)

Okay, the first thing we need to discuss is the possibility of "reversing" the break up.

By that I mean actually getting your ex back. Now before you say this is impossible, let me assure you that it most certainly is not. In fact, in probably 90% of cases it's actually easier to just go ahead and win your ex back than it is to suffer through the pain and trauma of a break up.

Now, getting your ex back isn't hard. But does require you to go through some very specific steps to make it happen.

Since this is an article about ways to deal with a break up, I'm not going to go into detail about this here. But what you can do, and what you really must do, is to go ahead and check out the links down at the end of this story.

Those sites are absolutely essential if you hold out any hope of saving your relationship. You owe it to yourself to at least check them out, so be sure and do that, okay?

4 Tips for Getting Over a Break Up

Okay, now that we've covered that, let's get into some steps you can take to start feeling better fast.

1. Don't dwell.

When you have broken up with someone, you'll find that the breakup is frequently all that you can think about. You'll find that you want to talk about, and that you want to stew over it, and it can be hard doing anything that is associated with your ex without thinking about the bad feelings from the breakup.

Remember that in the long run, this will turn you into someone who can't stop dwelling on a past relationship! Gather up your willpower and make sure that you find something else to think about.

2. Stay friends

Sure, you're willing to pay lip service to the idea of staying friends, but are you willing to go the distance? If your ex is a good person, chances are, you are going to want them in your life no matter how far you've come from being a couple.

Make time for them, expect them to make time for you. Be respectful of new relationships, and try to speak with them as a friend, rather than as someone who is manipulating them towards a specific end goal.

3. Keep yourself presentable

If you have recently gone through a bad breakup, you'll find that there are plenty of reasons why you might want to let your appearance go. You may feel that no one will appreciate it, or that there's no point.

In many ways, this can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you don't take the time to make sure that you are presentable, no one will be willing to get close enough to see what an awesome person you are.

4. Don't give up

Remember, it's a very, very doable thing to get your ex back. In fact, there's a good chance that this is much more likely than you think, so make sure that you check out the sites below. They'll help you put things right!
