How to Move Forward After Breaking Up with Your Significant Other

Posted on December 13th, 2010 by

At the time your ex suggested moving in together, it certainly sounded like a good idea. But now that you two have finally called it quits, you may find it much harder to get over a break up with someone you lived with then someone you didn’t. Your lives were intertwined for a brief moment in time, and that’s not particularly easy to get over.

As you prepare to move your stuff out and get on with your life without your former lover, you’re going to need healthy ways to move on. Here are three tips to help you get beyond your former relationship and into the realm of singles once more:

Tip #1: Take Your Ex off Your Social Network Accounts
In order to keep you from stalking your former flame, go online now and delete them entirely from your account. Whether you’re on Facebook, Twitter, or both, remove your ex as soon as possible. If you don’t trust yourself to not check up on their doings, take the added step of blocking them completely.

Tip #2: Spend More Time with Your Closest Friends
Turn to your friends to help make the break up bearable. After deleting your ex from the social networks you belong to, you’re probably going to receive a flurry of tweets and wall comments asking what happened. Your buddies will tell you everything you need to hear at this time: why they thought you two were never a good match, how you are so much better off without the ol’ ball and chain, and the annoying habits you once thought were so cute from your significant other.

Tip #3: Get Into the Swing of Being Single
With the initial shock of the break up passing by, you can now welcome yourself back into the world of the singles. Since you haven’t practiced flirting in a while, take the opportunity of honing your skills wherever you go. Sign up for a free online dating account or a singles meet up event to get a feel of the local dating scene

Getting over a break up is a challenge, but it’s not the end of the world. Lament the loss when it’s fresh, but don’t dwell on it. Move forward in a positive direction by clearing yourself of your ex online, tapping into your close friendships, and discovering what it means to be single again.
