Dear Date guy..

I was in love with this guy for over a year now .. An I mean true love.. at least from myside!
oneday he said that he can’t be with me.. he even cryed to me on the phone and said : sorry but I can’t do it .. ( afraid of commitment he then confessed..)
I can’t see to get over it .. all his promises . all our plans .. all the love.. every word every touch ..
I can’t stop crying and i can’t have a minute of happiness , I wanna be myself again .. wanna get over it .. how do they do that???
its my first love.. and am 24 years old now

please tell me how to get over it .. how to be happy and normal again?

First off, sorry to hear about your situation. A broken heart is something we all go through at one point or another and is one of the most anguishing experiences we can have. But keep that in mind, that EVERYONE has their heart broken and EVERYONE eventually gets over it. As will you.

In the short term, your best bet first and foremost is to let go of any thoughts you may have of getting back together with this guy. I know it’s easy to want to think that he’ll “come to his senses” but the reality is that the longer you hold on to that hope, the longer and stronger you will hurt. So immediately accept the reality of the situation and know that YOU will be moving on.

Second, keep in mind that for the most part every day will get a tad bit easier. You may have your set backs here and there, but overall the more time that passes the better off you’ll be. The saying “time heals all wounds” actually holds true as one day you will find out.

Third, don’t take it personal. I’ve broken up with tons of girls and most of them had absolutely nothing wrong with them. At the end of the day, I just wasn’t ready to be fully committed and unfortunately I broke things off with many outstanding ladies. I look back at most of them now and have nothing but the utmost respect for them. They weren’t the ones “broken,” I was.

Forth, use this time to challenge yourself, rebuild yourself. Here is the perfect opportunity to make yourself a better person than you were while you were dating this guy.

Lastly, have faith. Know that things happen for a reason. Yes, it’s so easy to say and so hard to believe in times like these but trust me, it’s true. You may have thought that this guy was the perfect person for you, forever. But there will come a day that someone better suited for you will come into your life and make you even happier than you were before. Pretty much every girl that I dumped shortly moved on and ended up with guys who really know how to take care of them and showed them the love that I ultimately did not. At the end of the day, they were the ones who ended up better off than I. There I was, single for years and all of my ex’s were completely happy in healthy relationships. I actually was a bit jealous.

So know that you will get over this hurt, there is no doubt. You’ll have to ride out the pain, there is no doubt. But one day, just like all of us have, you’ll look back and it will be a distant memory. You’ll actually forget what the hurt felt like.

My biggest advice, just take it day by day. Every day that passes is a small victory.

Cheers,

The Date Guy
