It really takes a long time to go over the first big break up. There is and there will never be anything like the first love, the naivety, the selfless sentiment involved will be hard to find again with someone else. However, the moment you’ll fall in love again will come, the butterflies will pay a visit to your stomach again. “Whenever you least expect it,” they say. In the meantime, the best way to go through a tough break up is being honest with yourself.
Give yourself a break from dating, take time out for you, threat yourself. Only when you’ll feel a bit better, surround yourself with friends and go out, have fun, meet people, make new friendships and why not, get on Tinder if you want. One big recommendation: If you just broke up with your big love, DO NOT watch the movie La La Land or similar romantic stories, it could really hurt and cause a bunch of sleepless nights. Good luck finding a better love, it’s out there!
