Dealing with your feelings Being supportive Working around awkward situations Community Q&A Breaking up can be hard and is even harder in that odd situation where your friend starts dating him or her after you broke up.
Don’t hold higher expectations of your ex than you had in your previous relationship with him or her.
He or she probably didn’t change much while the two of you were apart.
What if you can’t completely cut off contact because you have children together, run a business together, or work together? If your ex wants to know how you’re handling the breakup? And you know what they say—what comes around goes around. And depending on the size of the city you live in, a post-breakup run-in with your ex is not only possible, it’s probable. Bumping into him does not mean that the two of you are meant to be together.
A word of warning when you’re in post-breakup mourning: DO NOT seek comfort in the arms of your ex. Instead, recruit a support system from your inner circle of friends, preferably friends who have your best interests at heart and won’t report back to your ex on your progress and setbacks. Then shut the door on any and all opportunities to help each other heal following the breakup.

In giving yourself a six-month cushion, you greatly increase your chances of getting over your ex.
In the throes of post-breakup angst, you may not like the sound of that. Rather than fight what you know is right for you, give yourself permission to put the six-month rule into practice.
I joined this site to see what everyone was talking about, I must say that I have had my mind blown a couple of times by some of these women!
I never guessed that this website would become this big.
Just as you deserve to heal and move on, so does your ex. Avoid Being Each Other’s Crutch You loved, you lost, you’re now in mourning. If your ex calls, emails, texts, or stops by seeking comfort for his broken heart? Instead, kindly but firmly let him know that you are no longer his go-to support system.
