Throw Yourself into your Career
A cliche, I know, but it’s surprisingly effective. There’s no time like being single to forget about your ex girlfriend and really put forth your best effort in your job. You can stay late at the office, advancing your career, and not have to worry about being accused of sleeping around when you get home late.
Being single is also the best time to really realize what you want to do with your life. You don’t have to worry about making career changes that affect your relationship, and can be free to switch jobs or even move without worrying about repercussions with a significant other.
Of course, if you move, it will be more difficult to “accidentally” bump into your ex girlfriend at Starbucks, but that’s a sacrifice you may have to make.
Take A Trip Away From Where Your Ex Girlfriend Lives
A vacation is a great way how to get over your ex girlfriend. Experiencing a new place and meeting new people is sure to make you forget about her, and you don’t have to worry about choosing a place she’ll like; your trip can be all about you.
Choose a place you’ve never been before, take some time off from work, and just enjoy relaxation in a new area. You’ll get over your ex girlfriend in no time, once you’re on a nude beach. If the young beach bunnies don’t push your ex girlfriend out of your mind, the overweight grandpas sure will.
Get a Makeover
Just don’t use the term ‘makeover’ when you’re talking to your guy friends. But seriously. Join a gym or start running around your neighborhood to get in shape. Get ripped and muscular. Go shopping and spice up your wardrobe with a couple new pieces to show off your new body.
Take a bus to a part of town you won’t see anyone you know and get a decent haircut for once. It really doesn’t matter what you do, just update your look to something newer and fresher; make little improvements to yourself that make you feel better about your appearance. Being confident is a surefire way how to get over your ex girlfriend.
Breakups hurt, and forgeting your ex girlfriend is hard, but feeling great about yourself and a new look means you’ll be ready to take on the world, or at least walk leave the house without gin on your breath. Your ex girlfriend will regret letting you go, but you’ve moved on already.
