Do you think...

Do you think it takes meeting someone else to get over someone you once loved? Or is it easier to get over them and then move on? If that's the case I guess I"m just doomed cause I don't think I'll ever get over him....sigh....lol.

  • I think you need to grieve for the loss of a loved one before moving on. Although some people prefer to meet someone new to grieve with, and to get their mind off the one they've lost. It's all up to you, and what you feel is right for you.

    I agree with this..dont go into something new broken. work on yourself and be happy with yourself before you more on.

  • For me it had nothing at all to do with meeting someone else. I was not interested in meeting someone else while breaking up and going through a divorce. I got over my three ex-husbands because they were buttheads and by the time it got so bad that I filed for divorce, there were simply no feelings left for them.

  • Grieve for your loss,find yourself and then look for somone new if that's what you want. I am going thru the same thing now. One day I vow to forget him completely and the next day he consumes my thoughts. It is leaving me an emotional wreak and I can't do this to me. Plus I can't give anything to a new relationship until I am in control of me. Mine moved on with his exwife,and I'm the one left crying. Be strong and take it one day at a time. Good luck

  • Oh gosh, I can tell you from personal experience, NO. It does not make getting over someone easier - especially if you never really had 'closure' with the ex.
