Every girl is going to get her heart broken. It's probably one of the hardest things to go through in life. Every girl has their own story and their own pain, but we're all very similar.

In my opinion the most important part of getting over a boy is, don't you DARE shut yourself down and refuse to love again. Please don't put a wall up. It's incredibly hard to break down and you may miss some great opportunities along the way.

I know this from experience, I shut myself down for five years. I'm 19 and still in love with that same boy and finally realizing I have to move on and open myself up again.

Get some good friends or good family members and just smile and enjoy life. You will never be 16 again. It goes by so fast. There will be a million and one guys for you but there is only one YOU. Stay true to that and I promise you, you will be fine. Us girls gotta stick together ;)

I have the same exact question. I was with this guy for only 3 months but fell for him so quickly. He told me he loved me and never felt that way for any other girl. Then all the sudden he ended it and blamed it on sports and that he needed to focus he even cried when he told me a little. So I don't understand how a couple days after he told me.. the second excuse was "lost feelings".. ??? I need some advice to get over him because im still hurting. :(

It was fours ago people, so don't have to worry about helping her, but it's good you are posting advice here. My last two boyfriends told me I was that they wanted to be with forever. Eh, they let me because I finally told them that I'd do anything for them. I get dumped the next day or the same day. :D

Relationships are hard, but they bring good memories. Cherish what you have now, but don't be too clingy with your current lover. Be yourself. :]

Well first you need to realize that he is gone, you should realize that he isn't there anymore. just know that theres tons of guys out there that will stay w/you through the thicks & thins but was he the one that was there through those time? you seem very young, you have so many time in life to find someone like him. right now, just let go..maybe go out w/your friends & have a nigght out! do something you really wanted to do & prove to him that he have left someone that he probably regret. do something that will make you happy but something that won't hurt yourself! :]

I know its hard getting over a boy... Trust me I know how it feels. Just hang out with friends and get some advice from them or someone that you trust then you might feel a lot better. Don't just sit around and cry or eat a bunch of unhealthy snacks... Be the smart and strong girl that you are and someone will come along and sweep you off your feet... But remember love before you fall in love.!

there is people here saying things about dignity and things like that but the truth is, the feeling of wanting him back and not over him can only be replaced by someone else, find someone else or even wait until your over him and dont get involved with anyone. even that is hard, i always find myself crying randomly but just replace them and wish em the worst!

i was in love with this guy and i was 16. i really thought he was differnt, turned ut he was like all the rest. in fact worse. You just gotta tell yourself to get over him. You cant make him love you, you just have to accept it and move on. Ok, so he gets another girl, big woop! I bet she doesnt even come close to you. Go out with friends more, and maybe go out on a few dates with ome other guys. Try not to think about him. Look at it as his loss, your gain. There is plenty more fish in the sea, and where only young. If you want to cry then cry. if you get it all out in the open you will feel much better. Good luck. :) xx

Hey..

so i'm in the same situation. i'm 15 and a sophomore, and i was with the same boy for 10 months. then he out of nowhere broke up with me for my best friend. but she doesn't even like him. and to be honest, this is so hard to get over. i try not to think about him, maybe try dating one of his friends, or change yourself. try starting a new slate. but be careful, cuz that one backfired on me. (i went from blonde to this reddy purple color for my hair n all he did has shake his head and go back to talking to his friends |3) stay in there, and fight for yr man. (: hope i helped.

Yes, I recently have been diagnosed with this problem. This boy is in the year below me, and we went out and he finsihed with me cos it wasn't the same for him anymore, and basically the way i am getting over him is easy for me, but maybe wont be the same for you...

1. It was snowing today, so i made loads of snowballs, and took my anger out by smashing them at his face.

2. Think about liking some-one else, make it a flirt with some-one in your class. And even though it's harsh, date some-one else, and he WILL get jealous and come running back.

3. Just play it cool, don't make yourself look upset about the break-up, just make it look like "Whatever you do isn't going to bring me down."

Hope this helped :) x

my advice 2 you is if he replaced you within days he obviously didn't love you so you should just replace him and see him running back 2 you but don't let him just back into your heart so quick actually think if he is worth your love all im saying is if he broke your heart once how do you know he wont do it again think about it. don't waste your time on loving someone who isn't going to love you back its a waste of tears x

i've had a crush on a boy for 10months now.

hes in all my classes. and its so hard! in this 10months he's had 3 different beautiful girlfriends, and i really didnt think i had a chance. for the first few months i went about it all completely wrong! i flirted with him TOO MUCH, and he actually hated me! a few months later i calmed down, and we started to bond. at the moment we're best friends, and everyone knows how close we are, we tell each other everything and i can trust him with anything. but a few nights ago it was magical! he told me he fancied me, but he told people he didnt? i was confused. I got his best mate to tell me the truth it was that he would go out with me, but he didnt properly 'love me'. i let it die down, and now i know he does love me. he came over to me HUGGED me and told me he liked me. it was amazing. there was nothing better! to get a boy to like you - smile, make casual conversation, dont talk to much and follow him this will scare him off. be friendly with his mates. tell him you might have feelings for someone else, this shows ur hard to get. if someone else flirts with him stay carm so he doesn't think you care. if hes fit and is popular - even better! keep carm. you cant have a proper relationship with this 'love' if you arn't good friends first! if you are scared that when you break up you would have ruined the friendship DONT BE. if he's true and caring for you, he will want to stay close to you, and then just start all over again. dont wait for him to ask you out, he might be waiting for you. ask him out, tell him you love him, if he's a gorgeous nice boy, he'll want you back.

A female reader, tammeirra United Kingdom +, writes (14 June 2009):

to be truely honest, if you feel what you felt for the boy was true, there is no way or strategy of getting over him quick, it shows that when you feel something for a boy your feelings are true and meaningful and when you give that part of your self and he takes advantage of the feelings you expressed to him tells me yes he wasnt worthit but it still doesnt erase the memmories where he made you feel something no one could. In my advice the way to get over a boy is to work through your memmories cherish the good times and learn from the bad. Once you have did that its time to start accepting...healing and then moving on slowly and remmember no need to rush your a woman worth waiting for, and if you dont come to terms with that then you will wait a long time to truly pass this heartbreak.

wow thats the same exzact thing that happened to me and im 16 to i gave this boy everything ,i gaveup my friends i stoped spending time with my family i basically sat around and waited for him and everyone was telling me that i shouldnt be wasteing my time on just one person because im 16 and if he breaksup with me i will be lost,and they were right a week ago he called me and told me his feeling have changed .but trust me that is just excuse because just like your story my exboyfriend replaced me in a few days to and you know the funny thing he wanted to keep me on as a friend,reallty all guys want to keep you as a friend for is to keep you on the side.my best advice for you is to be single work on yourself find something that truly makes you happy,but im not going to be the one to tell you to get over him becaus eits hard it will take time,but i bet you are a pretty girl and you deserve better,people from are past dont make it to are future for a reason:)goodluck

hey am a "broken heart" girl too..

u knw what? Boys in our age are so very immature..

They deserve nothing specially our luv..

We have sooo many things to give them like our heart, our kisses, our hugs, and especially, US!

Think, they DO NOT deserve all those things..

My opinion is that at our age, 13-17 year old is the easiest part to fall in luv..And sooner or later "the luv of our lives" will dumb us. We are gonna cry and cry and cry.

But live your life now you are young. Do not look for "the one".

Look for teenage firts and fun stuff.

Hey babe!! i'm going through the exact same thing as you right now. Wen i read your problem i sware it was me lol. Its soo hard for me atm and i heard his getting with this girl in my year and we only broke up like 3 weeks ago. Its hard but you just gta be close with your mates and form more relationships. Maybe even have a break from boys coz you don't wanna get hurt again. Wen ever you start thinking bout him just say to yourself that your strong coz you really are. No girls need a boy in their life to make everyrthing better. Trust me you will be fine just try and stop thinking bout him.

Hey Im Bel, i have the same problem im meant to be going out with this guy, ive been out with him before and now ive finally got him back, i love him so much.

he asked me back out about 3 weeks ago and i finished my boyfriend to get back with him, hes in the army so i hardly see him but when hes at home he never comes to see me, he never rings me and today my mate saw two girls in his car today instead of him coming to see me.

i dont even know if im with him anymore hes just blanking me.

all i can say is the only way of getting over some dick thats treated you like shit is to just go out with someone else then your start liking him and eventully your start to forget about your ex, keep saying to yourself all the things you hated about him.

sometimes the only way you can get over someone is with time. They say that time is a healer and this is true. I feel head over heels for a guy once. When we had a one night stand and he never wanted me again this cut me into pieces. But given time i got over him. I think about it now and say to my self god was i relly that silly thast i couldent see what he was. When you are in love you always look at the good points and he seems perfect but when you look at the bigger picture you realise that he is not so perfect. So all you need is time and you will get over it. Just be patient

I'm going through a similar situiationn.. i had been going out with this guy for about three months, until i met this other guy.. i thought i was so in love with him, and i dumped my other boyfriend. me and this new guy i loved started going out, but just last night he dumped me after a week, wanting to be just friends. so now i have nothing, which i deservee :). just rememberr people are in the samee boat as youu, chin up x

Hey, there is really know way of getting over a boy in a short amount of time as we all would like to. Tbh ive been through so much with this one boy my first proper love and all and im 16 aswell but like its not so great we broke up got back together broke up. I still cant get my head around getting over him.

Things what really get to me is seeing hearing things about how he has been with someother girls, it hurts to be honest. The more we think about that person the more we want them back, which is not good as look at all the things they put you through, the best thing i find is to think of all the things they have put you through and DONT just become friends with him as it only makes it harder,

get rid of all contact with him no matter how hard it is, it will only be harder if you keep running back. Dont get revenge try make him jealouse of what he missing as really he most likely dont care and you dont want him back, one day in his own time he will realise you dont need to help him in anyway. Go out more see friends make your self busy so you dont find not always foocused on what he is doing and what he might be up to.

Get rid of anything he gave you, so nothing can remind you of him. Write a letter of all your feelings addressed to him and rip it up and then you make a new fresh start. Btw your not the only one feeling like this so lets not all feel sorry for ours selfs and lets do something about it, as they dont care how you are feeling at all.

I was in the same situation last week. I broke up with this boy and then we stayed good mates but months later one of my best mates fancied him, at the time i didnt care, so i set them up and suddently i got these feelings come all rushing back. I had no idea what to do and started acting stupid around my mate, then we realized that it was stupid to fall out over a silly boy, i let her stay with him but this is how i got over him ...

* Think about what he did to you, how he broke your heart and how you can do alot better

* Its okay to stay mates with him but you need to get over him! Try out over lads and see what they are like. You'll never know until you try

* It's not bad being single, infact I am right now and the only thing I care about is my mates.

A week later i got over the boy and everytime i saw them together i didnt get jealous, infact 4 other boys asked me out so it was soo bad

Good Luck!

hello :) right first of all dont show him you care, because he will know hes got you rapped round his little finger, first of all stlil be his friend by talking to him, cause you cant make it to obvious. Then when hes near talk to his mate be a little flirty, and i donno maybe start meeting his mate, he'll realise what hes lost then and soon come running back. Honest boys are like that they always want what they cant have. Just show you dont care! xx

hi. i was searching the internet for answers myself on how to get over an ex bf. The thing is when i was readin your answer i couldn't get over how similar our positions are. i split from my bf about a month ago, 2nd time around. its not that i didnt wanna be with him its just he seemed so distant so i decide to make a stupid decision and let him go. the only problem is that 3 weeks on and i cnt get him out of my head. he came round to see my brother the other day, me thinking this is it back togetehr soon... how wrong was i?!?!? later that night he introduced me 2 his new gf. i meen cum on abit harsh?? truth is i have no idea how to get over him but all i can suggest is that you do things to take your mind offf it. its bound 2 b hard at 1st but things will get easier.. go out with friends thats a real uplift i promise you that go out and have fun check boys out chat with them, even flirt a little, instead of moping around the house just hopin he will cum and sweep you off your fedet. because the truth is if he didnt stay around long enough to see your past, then he definatly doesnt deserve to be in your future. moving on will be hard but there willl be other boys who will mark a deeper mark than the last and pretty soon you will find the one who understands you completly. when you find him dont let him go. one more thing its been proven that if you stop lookin for mr right then he will come to you. lots of love ncj x xx x

And i let him do this to me, i let him make me like him then i let him just go and come back when he wants. And i tell my friends about there all just like OMG what the hell just let him go, move on, and there all like why can you even let him do that to you? but the thing is that i just cant get over him. i like him sooo much. all of me just wants him and only a part of him just wants me.

Well this happened to a friend of mine a couple days back and she is really going through her own personal hell as a "friend" is now dating him.

My advice is really however hard it is to try and ignore him. It WILL be hard and you WILL still be upset for a while so busy yourself with other stuff.

Have you friends round, go to a cinema.But DONT obsess about him and his new "thing" okay.

Most of all in my opinion however mad you are you shouldn't saboutage his relationship because he will probably do it himself. Get your OWN BACK!!!!

When you are ready find a guy who will care for you and likes you for YOU!! Then the "Ex" will feel stupid for letting you go and you will be happy with a better man :)

So go out there and HAVE FUN!!!

Forget about him for a while with your friend

Good luck

But my answer to your question would bee veryy Simular too the rest. ''Just blank him completley. Dont be mean and nasty, if a Conversation happens to Occur and you feel uncomfortable, then just say your busy. In school if your in any Subjects with him, dont Just sit there feeling sorry for yourself and DONT showoff. Just be yourself and let him see on what he's missing out on. Dont expect this to happen in all of 3 days. It could take some time. So just be paitent :)

You can easliy forget him by moving on and talking to other boys. I know it's not easy but once he sees you don't care about him or forgot about him, he might even start liking you again.

hey guys, i totally understand how you feel. me and this guy had been "talking" for a few months...well he lived kind of far from me, so i visited and well things went down..but i was just so happy to see him, and i was sure that something was going to come of it, like a relationship, but no. when i got back home, he treated me differently, like total shit. and then like yesterday he was like, lets be friends. im like, crying my eyes out because i wanted so much more. it hurts. bad. all i want to do is sleep and cry. because he's already seeing other girls. but i think the best thing to do is just be his friend, and just show him that youre havin a good time without him. if it was meant to be, he'll come back to you eventually. and then you'll be strong enough to turn him down. go out with your friends, and look for other guys because im sure he wasnt that great. why would you want someone who doesnt want you back anyway you know? good luck.

Hi(:

I think the only way to really get over a guy, is to find another. Its the only way really. Loves just a never ending spiral of days when you feel amazing, and ones when your heartbroken. This is until you find that 'one'.

So i say all you can do is continue, and find someone else(:

..It may take a while to get over this person.. even once youve found another. But you cant help that.

i know how you feel

i went out with this guy for 4 months we were both head over hill about each other. he also used to tell me that i was the one and he wanted to marry and me and spend the rest of his life with me.

he was so lovely he used tell me he loved me so much and he never ever wanted to lose me or let me go.

but over the chirstmas hoilday i saw him we had a huge fight over that fact i couldn't see him as much cuz i was going away this chirstmas hoilday.

so i went away and i hadn't spoken to him while i was away but wen i came back i found and email on my bebo saying from him that he couldn't do it no more and that he wanted to break up. he still wanted to be friends but i just couldn't do it.

but then a week down the line i found out while i was on hoilday he was seeing my best friend in college. i was so mad i couldn't believe it my own best friend

but to get over a guy is to forget and live life their loads of guys out their. you've got to find him i never give up even tho i was in love wiv him i always have hope that some one will come a long and he would be just as g8 as the last guy i had .

so get over a guy go out with you m8s have fun live life to the full. go partying meet new guys chat flirt and just for get about him

to be honesty if he loved you that much he wouldn't had found a new girl in weeks after you've broken up so he aint worth crying over or even thinking bout. cuz i tell you wot he aint thinking bout you. i know it sound hash but it true you need to get one with you life and find some one better then him.

wish you the best of luck x

Oh my god! Same. I went away for a week and before that i met up with my boyfriend (well ex boyfriend) and he was like 'i love sooo much, your the only one for me' ect and i let myself fall in love with him. I loved him alo, more then i've loved anyone for a while, i though it was perfect.... and he said that he would text me and everything. But like when i went he was like going to town and stuff with these girls from another school who have a reputation of being majorly flirty, and him and one of them got along really well. So when i came back, he was acting soooooooo differently! It was like we didn't connect like we used to. And i was getting really upset about it, becuase he didn't really talk to me anymore, not the way we used to be. So had to say something (becuase he kinda did the same thing with his ex girlfriend - the one before me, and that did not end well at all!) So i said something, but he was like 'oh, i don't think theres anything wrong between us, i still love you like loads and loads' so i believed him and i said sorry to him, and he didn't even say sorry back even though he knew that i had found out that him and that girl were gettin quite close.

The next day i was still really upset, and he was still acting really weirdly. Later that evening, i recieved a text from him, the text that was going to ruin my life ... He said something like 'i've been thinking about what you have said, and i think we should break up. Hope we can still be friends X' I WAS LIKE SOOO SHOCKED! I COULD NOT STOP CRYING AT ALL! And i still can't, i think about what we had every single day and i still cry about it even though it was like over a month ago! It still really upsets me as i thought he was actually perfect :'(. So i asked him when he started to realise that things wern't 'the same'. He texted me back saying.... 'since you went away for the week'. I WAS SOOOOO ANGRY at the point. He changed him view of me, his feelings about me in over a WEEK! I cried to my friend and it was such a sad day. And like a few days later, he's telling this other girl that he liked her, no, that he LOVED her! Even though she had a boyfriend.

I know how you feel, its the world's WORST feeling ever to get dumped, espically if you really love/d this person .. like i did. I think the best thing to do is o get all the crying out of the way then start to move on with you like. Im saying this... but i can't even seem to do it myself :S

Hope this helps, knowing your not alone AT ALL

For me, its the same...Kinda. I broke up with my boyfriend because i felt better as friends but then he started flirting with other girls and it really hurt. There was nothing i could do because we broke up. He told everyone that he really loved me and i was soo special to him but he just moved on too fast. What im doing may not be the best way to get over him but its working for me. I'm flirting with guys right in front of him and telling myself i can do better, after a couple weeks i started to blieve. I hope it works for you, but thats how i did it so...could luck!

yea that kinda happened to me... i was going out with some one for like 4 months and we broke up like 2 and half months ago and i still havent gotten over him :[ no one knows how i still feel about him because i know the only advice they could give me is the same thing everyone says, just not to talk to him or think about him. i liked this kid so much i did everything i could for him , and he cheated on my three times but i forgave him because i really liked him, but my jealous side came out when he would hang out with other girls and everything and i had no trust for him. when we fought i just didnt know what to do and he never realized how much it hurt me having him dump me..but now it seems like everything that happens reminds me of him. and worst of all my friend of 10 years is going out with him.. we're not friends anymore and i feel really backstabbed... if anyone has any advicee or somthingg it would be really helpful .. thanks:]

i know exactly what you are talking about. i went out with this boy for 4 months, not that long, but i was in love. All my friends said "you don't know what love is your only 15. but when you know, you know. trust me. we fought alot but nothing big. we broke up just over 2 months ago. i cry every single night, i don't do anything the same. i miss him so much, i wait for him to call every night but he doesn't. no ones advice helps, but i hope mine will. i am still in love with him, and my life has changed so much since we broke up. i even hooked up with another guy to get over him but it just made me miss him more. don't write 10 things down about how he isn't worth it cause then you'll feel guilty. don't try and forget about him, because you shouldn't ignore people that were put in your path, because they were put there for a reason.

you don't need to get over him, theres no rule. take all the time in the world. im still friends with him, and most people would think thats bad, but its better than not talking to him at all. so best way to get over him? not to. you will on your own don't force it, it will take a LOOONG time but it will eventually happen, don't go looking for another boy, concentrate on what matters: school friends ect, he will come to you. trust me:)

Just do what he did find somebody else like he did cause i was in a same situation but the boy we were really close friends and he asked me to go wit him and i did not anwser so to him that was a yes and a no.But after that we became closer but one day i was out of school sick and he asked my best friend/sister to go wit him after she had broke up with his best friend /brother and she said yes so now they go together.And me and his best friend/brother are off and on going together. But the way i got over it was just go your separte ways and now i am about to leave to go to live in california and he calls me and tells me he is going to miss me and i asked he why now why miss me now you did not before when you asked my best friend/sister to go wit you and he explained why so i said ok and i was thinking he still has feelings for me and i askd him did he still have feelings for me and he told the truth and said yes i do he told me he can't stop thinking about me and girl he is going wit is nothing better than me. Last we went to a movie and he tried to kiss me isn't that something after all that he tried to kiss me. SHAME!

jenxleigh agony aunthey , like alot of poeple say. it takes time, yes it will be hard in the beginning but you have too move on. Your going to have to go out with your freinds and hang with other boys. Try as hard as you can not to think about him. I would remove all the pictures or anything else you have with him , too try and forget about it all. Everything happens for a reason, so clearly it was not supposed to be. in a few months if you still find your self stuck on him i think you should tell him how you feel, give him a call.

Of course breaking up with someone is going to be hard there is no way of getting over someone quickly but there are some things to help it hurt less, I just recently broke up with my fiancee, I was and still am madly in love with him but things just weren't working out. Yes I cried my eyes out for days, stayed in my pyjamas for basically a week and felt sorry for myself, thats the worst part over what to do next is to meet your friends in town get your hair done, get a new outfit get a new look, hit the town flirt with all the guys you see and soon you'll be wondering what have I been doing for the past however long? because when you do this you'll see there are just as many guys waiting out there just wanting to talk to you and get to know you. It really does help to find someone new just to text and take your mind off things and then you'll realise your not waiting by the phone for your ex to call anymore, your waiting for your new guy to call,thats when you know things are gettin better!

I'm 20 i was with my boyfriend for two years and ten months we broke up two months before our three years. He was my first boyfriend, my first love, my first everything. i loved him so much. But he constantly brought me down. Honestly getting over someone is not easy.

It takes time. It takes a long time. I wanted to be with him so bad i went to him and begged for him to come back. He told me he had been with two other girls already and such. My heart felt like it was being torn out. I cried and cried. You tell yourself you don't need him. You tell yourself he wasn't worth it. But guess what in the end it doesn't work. You have to get them out of your lives entirely.

Don't pick up if he calls. don't go to places that he might be at. Don't talk to his friends. You have to ignore everything a 100 percent if you don't you will be constantly reminded constantly going back. Yes even doing this; you will think about him once in a while but as the weeks go by. It'll slowly fade away with new memories.

ok to get ova a boy is quite hard especially if uve bin with him 4 a while but u have to follow the cliches of how to get ova him. you are obviously guna hurt n everything but i feel to get over him you firstly need to block him out of your mind. then you need to get a really soppy movie or a rerun like friends or the vicar of dibly summin like dat n just have a good cry eat chocolatte or ice cream and chill give ya self a makeover. when u have got over the crying bit you need to go out on a girly day out go shopping or something and have fun even flirt with other boys if you feel up to it then go to someones house for a sleepover and do the reruns and everything again have a makeover n do hobbys and things you enjoy.

I asked him why he wanted to and he just said he is getting bored of me because all we do it stay at his house. I said i often ask you if you wanna go for a walk and he did once down the beach at sunset thats were we first kissed.. I was 14 then. After he dumped me the day it would of been 2years he got a girlfriend and said hes going to start a new life the same day he started one with me. After a few days he told me he had dumped her and wanted to get back together. I said ok and we did. Later on tho I heard his phone go off he told me not to get it but i was just going to say who it was off. I soon found out it was off his so called Ex girlfriend who he was with when we first broke up. I read it wonderin what it said... it said " hey baby, cant wait for tonight i have brought a new outfit and i have got a few more toys..." I asked him what it was about. I Soon found out not only was he cheating on us both but he was still sleeping with her when he asked me out.

Hey! I'm so sorry about what happened! It's a lot to go through i know! I'm going through something like that right now! except in my case it was all my fault. So i have to live with the guilt as well. Even though I am truly sorry. The only advice I can give would be to give it time. If you want to get back together with him, give him time to miss you. Don't keep trying to talk to him. Just give it time. I know it's painful, but that is the only thing you can do. Life is hard at times, but your not alone. Try not to think about it. I wish you the best! xoxo

i'm going through the same stage as you now, i have strong friends around me who hate him for what he did to me. Mine was abusive and totally knocked my confidence, at 14 you wouldn't expect this, but it happened to me. i deleted his number and cut myself off from him as much as i could. however 2 months on now i still can't get him out of my head, nor forget how much i love him despite what he did.

love is a tricky feeling to cope with, but my advise would be you can't "just be friends" you'll always feel more, so delete his number, msn, myspace, facebook + any other way of contacting. put pictures and memories and whatever else you may have that remind you of him in a box and give it to a close friend. this way they aren't lost forever hower you wont be able to get them out and look at them and remind you of him, but have them back in the future when you may want to look back on things.

then just go out with your friends on girly nights out and do whatever you can to have fun

make sure you talk about it with someone too, that helps so you aren't all bottled up

and what i found helped was making a list of his negative points (trust me the list is long) and just look at them when i start to think he is a nice guy.

i'm still not there but i'm hoping soon i will be able to move on

i hope everything goes okay

and that my advice helped you

remember though, you are never alone

what you need to do is: if you know for a fact you can't get over him, make him jealous. If he doesn't get jealous then try to get him out of your head and go out to meet guys. Don't try to look for a realationship, jus have fun. Every girl falls in love and gets the heart broken, so just show what u r made of.

i think the best way to get over a boy is by doing the things that interest you most. this way its taking your mind off of him. or you could even start up something new.

either way its going to take a while for your heart to heal. just let it do it by itself, and if crying helps, just do it. ^^

well, if he cheated on you, or treated you like complete and utter pig shite, then i'd have a little revenge.

Obviously its only short term gratification, but this is what i would do.

ring him,(after u have not got in touch with him for awhile) and suggest a meeting at a hotel. Say you need to talk to him urgently. then, whilst you are in the room, old memories stirring, (amongst other things...) offer him a drink. slip a few laxatives in it, and lead him on, until... he runs for the toilet or hopefully, with a bit of luck shits himself.

TIME TIME TIME come on girls, we naturally get attached to men and men naturally want to spread thier seed. The only way to get over him is TIME. You can't make him jelous, you cant win him back you just have to move on. As there is with death there are stages to getting over him.

First stage - Hate- hang with your girls, talk about how men suck

Second stage - lonely - you want to find a dark corner to curl up and cry because you will never fall in love. This is were you depend on your people to keep you out of the dark corner.

Third - Baby steps to reality - at some point you snap out of the curl up and cry stage usually because another guy will make a comment. Weather this is your next boyfriend or not, someone will say your cute, and you are back in the game.

BUT why don't you skip these stages, remain confident though the whole thing, you will find someone else faster that way. Its just a matter of getting over them. Why are you crying if apparently they aren't.

Well, i am in the middle of a very nasty and very hurtfull break up right now. I have been with him for 2 years and he is the man of my dreams, i thought that the feeling was mutual up until about a month ago. It was like a kick in the stomach when he said that he just doesnt have anything left, he is empty inside, and cant offer anything to me. just a few months ago we were talking about getting married, and having a family, and all of a sudden it stopped. I have absolutly no idea where to go from here, i almost cant believe it is happening. now as of today i am moving out with not the slightest clue on where to go from here. i dont want to find someone else, because for the last 2 years i have planned my whole life with him.

I had a boyfriend. I really liked him too. He used to be my friends old boyfriend. But she only thought she liked him. I liked him for two years. Than finally he actaully liked me. He liked to talk to me. We lasted for about a month but then in a cafeteria, he told me he didn't like me anymore. Turned out he liked another girl. Not even ine you could be reasonable about. He didn't care about me. At least that's how he was acting. Actually he was upset because he wanted to tell me himself. So one day at my friends house, we called him. We ended up fighting more than I could believe. I said I hated him. But somehow I liked him as much as I always had. Now I'm justs hurt. So I guess that the answer to the question is their isn't.

talk to him! tell him about your feelings. no offence to any boys out there but ladies you know how men can be. if he still wants to be your friend then that just means you're a toy that he's done playing with and he's put you in his little toy chest where you'll collect dust. so chicky if you talk to him and he still has no feelings for you then find someone new. Just always keep in mind that no man or boy is worth your tears and when you find someone who is he'll make sure you'll never cry.

also remember that most men are pigs and if you find one who's nice then pounce on him! (get to know him first of course) but there are guys out there who are nice. unfortunatly most i've seen are homosexual. :(

Bobbyjo agony auntI would just like to say to you - please do not take Dr Petes advice and get straight into another relationship!!! Its not fair on on that other person or on yourself and will probably cause you more unnecessary heartache in the long run.

The best thing to do is put this boy to the back of your mind and go and have some fun with your friends. Trust me, I know this sounds like such a cliche but this is good advice that I was given when the boy I loved more then anyone dumped me for another girl. I went out with my friends, made new friends, started new hobbies with my friends and soon found myself not having any time to think about the boy.

You also need to tell yourself that although it was good while it lasted, it is over and time to move on. Dont ponder over it - just remeber the good times you shared and look forward to more good times with someone new x

and take it from me that most boys arn`t init for you personailty , they jus care about looks and sex..thats how most male minds work like , once there with some one they get bored,,

no offense guys but you know its true

Im only 15 i already know how cruel the world can be , getting over some one is not easy only time heals these wounds but even then they can be re cut again , liek if you see him with some one else.

What you need to do is , try to get in to another relationship

..you can play it 2 ways ..either sit there and cry over what happened or move on and get your own bak

and take this advice in life, never get to close until you know for sure that , that person loves you as much as you love them, and even then take time in a realtionship , see his attitude is

i my self am stuck in a situation were i no sme 1 for realyyyy long and we no everything about each other , like i mean really close , but i just aint got the guts to tel her

Helen1986 agony auntHi hunny,

I promise you that you will find someone one day who will completely sweep you off your feet and you will laugh at this bloke now.

For the time being though I suggest that you spend as much time with your girlmates as possible, have some fun!!!

Do not get involved with another boy until you feel that you are over your ex as it will only be a rebound.

Why dont you give yourself a makeover? change your image, that will make you feel better in yourself. Also why not focus on a new challenge like a new job or something, something that will take your mind off of him.

The only way to get over a man is to keep yourself busy and to remind yourself that it is his loss!!!

Goodluck hunny

Its always hard to get over a guy no matter what age you are... The best thing to do is to go out, enjoy yourselves with your friends and let him kno that you can live with out him (even if your heart feels like its breaking inside of you)

Be strong, especially if he has replaced you... But don't just go with any guy that looks at you, you will only end up hurting more in the long run if you do that!!!

Take your time, take up new activites or something to take your mind off him. Avoid places that you know he's goin to be...

Best of luck with things..
