How Do You Deal With A Broken Heart?

Back to Chatter Box


Poll
So. What do YOU do to deal with a broken heart?
Binge. On food. Or alcohol. Or movies. Or manga. Or anything, really. BIIIIIIIINGE.
Bury myself in a dark little room and mope.
Cry. Very quietly. Where no one else can hear me.
Cry. Very loudly. Where all my unfortunate friends can hear me.
Burn it all! The old photographs, the gifts, the Valentine's Day cards...
Anonymous sex! In anonymous places! Or really well-known places. Whatever.
Ill-advised pity-sex with friends who will regret it afterwards!
Rebound! As in, quickly find new people to date, or at least put myself out there.
Revenge! It's a dish best served steaming hot, I tells ya! Like that dung I left in their driveway...
Stalking! It's the cure to all ills. Hey, if I can't have 'em, at least I can WATCH 'em.
Sabotage! Ruin the other person's chance of finding any other relationships.
Courtship! I never give up. I am the Energizer Bunny of heartbreak! They WILL take me back!
Makeover! I change myself physically, e.g. cutting my hair or working out. I'm a new me!
Nothing. I just go on with my normal life, hollow-eyed and looking like the living dead.
I've never had a broken heart. Because I've never been in love. :-|
I've never had a broken heart. Because I'm "rational". (Translation: I AM AN EVIL ROBOT.)
Other. (I am vastly more creative than your puny brain can imagine, pollster.)

The poll says it all. Choose your poison.

Please do detail your recovery strategies if they are not to be found on the poll, though!

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.

Thank you for your input!

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 experienced that kind of heart break so I don't know how I'd react to it.

Does getting wasted and having anonymous sex count as one ?

Pshaw, who needs those stupid feelings and emotions. They make you weak and flimsy!

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.

A strange combination of revenge, rebound and that aforementioned anonymous sex.

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!

Nothing.

I don't need to. I'll get over it
and realise how foolish it was to begin with.

Pretty much this.
