I haven't had to do this for a while, but I used to go buy a couple a my favorite shows on DVD (curb your enthusiasm, deadwood, lost, the simpsons, etc.), then binge watch them all in a couple of days. By the time it was done, I usually felt better.

Feel crappy for a few days & get over it... There's nothing else to do. Can't make someone want to be with you.

I would go on vacation. Nothing more refreshing than seeing something new. I was 24 before I got married and it was a running joke that I was moving on to the middle of the state because I had seen every state on the east coast.

I've only been with one guy other than my current boyfriend. I excommunicated the other guy from my life. That was pretty much the only thing I did when we stopped seeing each other.

I usually seek out friend companionship pretty hard and keep myself occupied being with people I love. Sometimes I drink, sometimes I don't. I let myself mourn a bit but then force the moving on stage to kick-start and keep real busy. Self-improvement hobbies are usually very useful, learning a new skill or whatnot.

I've usually been the one breaking up with him. A couple of times I've had to deal with it by calling the police. Seriously. Some guys just do not want to give up. The few times I've been dumped, I mainly just read lots of books, which is pretty much the same thing I do any time I'm stressed.

I use retail therapy, but I have to go out and shop I can't do it online that doesn't help with the healing as much. I know that's probably not healthy.

A little bit of drinking with friends while we watch some of our favorite movies. It's not always the method I use, but it works for me when I use it.

I buy lingerie. Nothing like a sexy little outfit to get me feeling good about myself again!

Anything that reminds me of the person, I box up and put away to tackle a year or more later when i am fully over the person and then i decide what i want to keep and what I want to throw away. I usually end up crying a lot over it and spend time with friends, or veg out with some video games. Movies don't always help as they always seem to stick romance in them and it makes me feel worse.

I purchased a program Called the Ex Recover System it was expensive and I got like the most expensive package. Very detailed and specific follow it and u are likely to win your ex back. It worked for me. We are doing great. You focus on you set goals achieve them and after so long write a short special crafted letter..its about controlling your emotions focusing on the good in life. THere are several methods to follow and there are some very long PDF's and videos...they were GREAT. I actuall want to keep the program and take notes to keep the relationship working well u can use the tips even while in a relationship...well some of the things in the program just ignore then.

Besides that think and cry over memories and pictures...I also want to change for the better and do fun things.

Finding things to do helped me the most. Friends are great too, but just keeping busy in general so I didn't have to think too much about it.

Depends, but if it's someone I care about, I usually spend a lot of time soul searching. Oh, and road trips.

Handled my last break up by eating ice cream, drinking rum and watching Tim Curry in lingerie (Rocky Horror always seems to make me happy).
