The Best Way To Get Over Someone

I've heard the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.  No, I don't practice this.  I do go on many many dates very soon after the end of a relationship.  Even if these dates are boring and awkward, it's nice to know there are many other fish in the sea.  Fortunately, none of the dates I've been on recently have been terrible.  However, I have gone out with guys who can't seem to stop talking and babble endlessly.

So, if you are having a bad breakup, pining after the ex boyfriend, et al, go on dates.  I know many will say, "I'm not ready to date."  Even if you aren't ready, go!  It's just coffee, a drink, lunch, or dinner.  Even if you find out those guys aren't the right ones for you, you'll know there are plenty of guys out there.


  1. That's the cliche advice in The Rules and by other dating 'experts' but it is way easier said than done. When you have perspective, you'll think "why did I spend so much time pining over our breakup instead of getting back out there?"

    But when it's fresh, every new guy reminds you of him. And every awkward first date reminds you how hard it is to start the process again, to reach the level of comfort and security it took months/years to build.

    1. Hey Sabrina, you are right, easier said than done. However, think it's even easier when the new dates are decent (not terrible or spectacular). When they are terrible, that's when I start thinking good things about an ex
