My girlfriend and I dated for about six months, and I thought everything was going great. She dropped me for another guy, and it seems like she’s doing fine. But, I can’t seem to get over her. I call her, but the calls usually go to voice mail. I even ask her friends about her, trying to find out what she’s up to. I know that she’s moved on, but I just can’t seem to. I think about her a lot—every day—and it’s just making me depressed. I don’t know how to move on with my life when I still love her.
Instead of focusing your efforts on trying to “win” your ex back, you should focus on moving forward and taking care of yourself. She obviously doesn’t want you in her life anymore, and you won’t benefit from having someone in your life that doesn’t want you in yours. Heartbreak and breakups are hard, but they also provide you with the opportunity to get to know yourself and prioritize yourself again. Stop calling her. Stop leaving her voicemails. Stop asking her friends about her. Turn the focus to you. Work on getting to a good place again.
