  • You have a child together so you will always be in eachothers lives. That's going to sting for a while hun I'm sorry. You eventually will meet Mr. Right and he will make you so happy and be great to your child and you will forget all about what's his name.

  • Find a hobby and get caught up on things you like. Find things that interest you. Look at the situation like this, if he's doing things that make him happy then y can't you? Too many beautiful women mourning over men that don't even have half as much power as us. a relationship u hurt from is equalvilant to a physical scar. Eventually it heals and u sometimes wont even remember how u got that scar.

  • Love takes time, time heals all wounds. Just give it time the same thing happened to me and it took me years to get over him. I still dream about him sometimes I still even dream about him even though I dont want him anymore now. Hes always in your life it seems especially with a child.

  • It takes time. My first serious relationship was when I was 18 years old and it took forever to get over him. I couldn't listen to "our" songs for about a year or two without crying. Make new memories with new people (family, friends). Go out with your friends (when time and money allow). Because of your son, the two of you will HAVE to see each other regularly. Keep it friendly for your son's sake.
