Getting over a guy is hard. Getting over a guy you never dated, well, that’s even harder. Although you weren’t official, it sure feels like you were. You talked every day, spent time together every weekend, and now he basically acts like you don’t exist. WTF? Whether he ghosted you or slowly faded you out, your “relationship” is over and you have to move on. Here’s how to do it:
- LET YOURSELF MOURN.
Okay, so you two were never exclusively together but that doesn’t mean you’re supposed to get over him faster (and easier) than someone you actually dated. You’re still allowed to feel sad. You’re still allowed to wallow in your bed with a pint of ice cream. You’re still allowed to mourn the death of this relationship, whatever it was, because it’s over now. It’s natural to feel a bit sad.
- SHUT DOWN THE PITY PARTY AFTER AWHILE.
You can take a couple of days to wallow in a dark room but after that, it’s time to stop feeling sorry for yourself and start living your life again. Meet up with friends, spend time with your family, throw yourself into your job or hobbies. It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you do something that forces you to leave the house and interact with humans.
