If you’re still sleeping with them, you shouldn’t need to read anything else to know that you’re definitely not over...
You're not going to get over them over-night. Fact.
Ever heard of faking it?
Remember that time you spent six hours on Pinterest?
Exes are everywhere, my friend, and unless you plan on skipping town or hiding under your pillow until they graduate, you are going to have to find a way to deal with it.
Our breakup was, uh, less than stellar, to say the least and everyone was expecting our interaction to be #awkward but it wasn’t at all, because The Ex and I have managed to maintain a friendship post-breakup.
Is being friends with your ex even possible? I mean, you've seen each other naked many, many times. You've opened up to each other about some weird stuff. And you once didn't know how you could live without him. I’m still pretty much trying to figure out the real answer to that question, but I’d like to think that, yeah, sometimes you can be friends with your ex.
The point is, a breakup is hard for both parties involved no matter the circumstances. And though I had my low moments, I still wanted to jump right back into the dating scene. Why? Because I’m young and there are hot guys everywhere at my university! Because I like to meet new people! Because not all guys are going to hurt me and I’m ready to meet someone worthwhile.
Last week, my male friend over at Coed Magazine shared his thoughts on how we ladies handle life after a break up. And let me just say, I haven’t LOLed that hard since the first time I watched this. (OMG. Just watched it again. HILARIOUS.)
Hey Dude, So here's the thing: I want to be friends with my ex-boyfriend. I might be naive, and maybe it won't work out, but I still want to do it. We dated for a really long time in high school (all four years), then went our separate ways for college. Then in college we did the whole hooking up thing for a bit, and now he has a new girlfriend and we are home for the summer...
I know Shakespeare says love is blind, but he never said anything about our best friends. What about their eyes? They can still see. If we had only been upfront with each other, there would have been no pain, no mistakes, no “WTF” relationships that in retrospect feel like a drunken dream, years lost and Friday nights ruined.
