And an interesting question: Have your ways of dealing with a broken heart changed? Like, did you binge-eat at one time but now you find yourself going for makeovers? Just curious about whether the nature of the relationship or the degree of a person's maturity can change their post-heartbreak behavior, or whether it's a personality thing, and people just deal with it the same way every time.
A few of those listed, I dealt with each of them differently.
For one, #3, I cried my eyes out silently in my room for days and stayed single for a couple months. For another I did the same but only for one night and got a new boyfriend within 2 weeks, so #8. My most recent, I just went on with my life because it wasn't a big deal, even though that was the longest relationship I'd been in (#5 applies here a year or so later XD).
I guess only the first was an actual heart-break, the others were just break-ups.
A few months ago I hung out with the first guy, and I have absolutely no romantic feelings left for him. We hadn't seen each other in years, but we still get along well.
I've never been in love. But when things get me down, I watch my favorite funny youtube videos or I go out with my friends until the early morning. I don't like feeling down, since that brings the others around me down as well.
Pretty sure I've never been in love but when I split with the b/f I gave my virginity to I slept around a wee bit and when I was younger and split with my childhood sweetheart I kissed around a wee bit, lol. Guess that's my coping mechanism, making sure I'm still desirable. It will backfire one day but oh well, enjoy it while I'm young enough to get away with it!
