Recovery 101: How to Get Over a Breakup with a Guy

Breakups are tough. Period. That’s a fact. And getting over a breakup can be even harder than the actual moment, especially because there’s no set formula for grieving what could have been. Inhaling ice cream only to leave you bloated from indigestion and too much lactose? No thanks. Cry for half the total time you were dating and then get over it? Not gonna happen.

When to Call it Quits

You’ve been chatting with someone online for a couple of months now. You really enjoy the conversation and you perhaps even think about them when you’ve had a little bit too much to drink. But, when it comes down to actually making plans to meet you have a habit of initially agreeing and then backing out last minute.

You may have begun to think, ‘is there something wrong with me?’


I Think I Might Want My Ex-Girlfriend Back, But Do I?

Joe from Montreal asks…Lava365 Ask the Expert

I recently got out of a relationship with my girl of 4 months and I’m heartbroken. I think I fell in love with her. She said I was not as committed as she was and that I am not supportive in her job. She works late night as a bartender and I don’t see why she broke up with me if she’s the one who is always busy and working. It’s been 2 weeks since the breakup. Should I send her flowers and apologize?

Joe, I feel for you. The period immediately following a breakup involves pain, a sense of loss, confusion, frustration and anger.  It is never easy and no one can prepare you for the flood of thoughts and feelings that dominate every moment.   The idea of having the person back in your life seems like a refuge from the deep sense of loss.

I know you feel the urge to contact your ex-girlfriend and talk to her about what happened.  I know you want the chance to connect and see her one more time. I know you want to find ways to make her demanding work schedule sync up with your relationship expectations.

I know. We’ve all been there.

Before you rush to the local florist, I urge you to give this matter of the heart more time. In fact, I think you should give it more in the ballpark of two months.   Give yourself time to adjust and consider your options.  Use the time apart to consider your feelings, the direction of the relationship and what you need in your life right now.  It may or may not be her.

In relationships, just as in life, it takes time to adjust to a new routine and see positive results.  Think of it as a new workout or trying to add more green leafy products to your diet.  It seems like hard, painful work as first that eventually, if you persist, will yield positive results.

Trust me and take the time.
