    Ok, I might be in need of a few after finishing something thats over 9 months old lol.
    Not totally sure if it's done for, but after that person refused to talk to me it looks like it.
    Do you guys do anything special?
    Lets see what you people come up with [​IMG]

    I personally went out and slept around, and then found someone else to obsess over and ended up happy.

    Aww.

    Yeah let's see... (none of these from experience yar)...

    Lots of casual sex (with both genders preferably)
    Lots of alcohol (preferably straight aka straight voda etc)
    Lots of really soppy movies complete with ice cream and massive bags of crisps and loads of chocolate (this one possibly for girls only)

    And then, exactly a month of the break up, make sure that you're looking hotter than ever with your hotter than hot new partner, and then "accidentally" bump into the ex while they look minging =)

    For the guys replace "soppy movies" with either Romero zombie trilogies or Star Wars trilogies. Or just porn which after 10 minutes gets a bit boring mainly because you've made a mess.

    Lol, Little what do YOU do if those suggestions aren't coming from experience?
    Or maybe you haven't had a break up yet.

    Shift your focus onto something pragmatic and non-emotional. Realize that you don't need a boyfriend to be happy, and simply try not to think about it any more than you're forced to. Find an aspect of your life that you feel is lacking and zooooom into it. It's all about shifting energy from one place (sulking) to another (doing something productive.)

    Good luck and godspeed! It'll all turn out, trust me (u can trust yer mthr!)

    Heynow... I don't think you should go "sleep around" that's just stupid IMO.
    What I think and should do... is stay inside.. be sad for a while... listen to emo music (like: Envy (not fall out boy or such pop)) and then I'd go out... thinking: Hey, if it's over, it's over and was probably not meant to be...

    If you get dumped, then that person doesn't see your qualities.... then screw her!

    emo music can only be listened by girls and faggots by the way. We're talking about a real man here.

    Is it your opinion that she is a guy? If so, I'll have a hard time with that one.

    edit: or did you mean for that "real man" comment to be directed at yourself? If so...

    And why does people keep saying that? I just can't believe it! makes me mad!
    what is it in emo that only girls and homosexuals only can listen to... tell me, please...
    Last time I checked, my girlfriend was a girl... and we've been together for 1and½ year....

    and do you even know what kind of music emo really is? and what I recommended?
    I put it up here, so You won't miss it!


    and this is semi-off topic... but hey, the music recommendation, of just this song, goes out to you RayorDragonFall...

    Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one. And since I don't respect your bunghole, I won't respect your "opinion" either. Why would we respect a pile of verbal excrement just because it's hidden behind the "opinion" label?

    Rayor... ummm, tough. Depending on how serious it was, either just shrug it off, go out and hang with your friends, or stock up on sweets, play the silliest games you can find on your Wii (to burn off the calories from the sweets [​IMG] and to take your mind off things), while listening to loud music, and then go out and hang with your friends. Just don't talk about you-know-who to your "supportive" friends before you've had some time to cool off, otherwise you might derive some crazy ideas best avoided.

    Cheer up [​IMG]
