Have you just broken up with your boyfriend? Feeling all lost and totally alone? How on earth are you going to work out how to get over someone who meant the world to you? Really sucks, doesn’t it?

It’s especially hard to deal with if the break up was a surprise and just happened out of the blue! It’s not what you wanted, but now you’re left adrift trying to figure out how to get over someone special all by yourself. How do you cope…?

Well, perhaps the following advice for getting over your ex might just make things a little easier. While the tips on offer might not solve every problem you have, at the very least, they’ll give you a roadmap to help you steer your way through the trauma of breaking up with or being dumped by a boyfriend.

4 Quick Tips – How Do You Get Over Someone Special?

  • Tip #1

Determine whether or not if the relationship is really and truly over.

If you still harbor thoughts of getting back together with your ex-boyfriend, you will not be able to get over that person. You can hang on to a guy for days, months, or even years when there is no hope. Until you decide it’s over, it’s not – even if the love is not reciprocated. You are not able to move on until you let go! Moreover, you can write a paragraph for her and share all your feeling and what you feel about your breakup so that you can get back with her if that is possible.

  • Tip #2

O.K. It’s really is over! Your relationship with your ex-boyfriend is finished, done, and dusted! Now, you need to take positive steps to end the relationship. For one thing, do a property exchange. Pack up all of the things he has at your house and ship them to him. Get rid of everything! And, I mean every single little thing that could possibly remind you of him.

Clearing yourself of each other’s things – photos, trinkets, CDs, etc. will help launch you into your newly single status! By doing this, you’re not only physically removing those painful reminders of your ex, but also psychologically “divorcing” yourself from the past relationship.

Here’s something important. If you have any financial commitments as a couple, or either of you owes the other any money, get things straightened up and settled as quickly as possible. You don’t want any money matters left outstanding as they can turn into ugly and messy situations down the track.

  • Tip #3

You have to decide what to do about people and places you have in common too. It’s not uncommon for a couple to decide “who gets the dog” after a break-up if you get my drift. Sometimes, it’s not healthy to continue to run into a person with whom you no longer have a romantic relationship.

Similarly, you may have to distance yourself from some of his friends or friends you had in common while you were a couple. Obviously, you can still be polite and friendly if and when you run into them, but they may not be people you want to contact on a regular basis any longer.

Staying involved with the same group of people has the tendency to re-ignite painful memories of the relationship you had with your ex-boyfriend and that’s something you definitely don’t need!

  • Tip #4

It’s absolutely essential that you start a “new life”. You’ll have to make the effort to fill your life with new people and activities.

Renew relationships with friends and family that you might have let lapse when you were involved with your ex. Work on making new relationships. You probably spent time doing things your ex wanted to do but that didn’t thrill you. Take advantage of this time to launch your own hobbies and interests.
