Is he loved up to you?! huh... huh.gif I dunno...

It's really hard to take your mind off of someone especially after you've just finished with them so soon an you really care about them... I still think about some of my ex's that i broke up with an thats like over 6 months ago.

All i can really suggest is just hanging out with friends, hanging with people that make you laugh an smile... that helped me take my mind off it laugh.gif Listening to music (preferably music that doesn't remind you of him wink.gif ) and just keeping yourself busy!?

Does that help? Hope so... it is hard sad.gif

*hugs*

having had some experience with this I can tell u what i've done. ok, what i did was try really really hard to convince myself that I didn't still want to be with that person. I know it sounds stupid but our minds work in an incredible way. I've discovered that you can convince yourself of anything. and it doesnt help if all you do is think about that person all the time coz it just makes u upset. I hope this might help u a little, I also think u should get outside and just do some fun stuff, hang out with your friends and just keep your mind occupied on other things. I also avoid thinking about stuff that I don't want to deal with, which isnt really the best way to go, just prolongs the problem but for some things it does help. good luck lil pie fairy *hugs*

I lie, I wait, I stop, I hesitate, I am, I breathe, I meant, I think of me. Is it any wonder I can't sleep? All I have is all you gave to me. Is it any wonder I found peace through you? Its not enough, just a touch. Its not enough. I taste, I love, I come, I bleed enough, I hate, I'm not, I was, I want too much. Its not enough, just a touch. Its not enough.

Ahh, you poor little Fairy *hugs* - that's rotten!! Were you together for long - not that it makes much difference - if you have feelings for someone you just do. I guess as you're still thinking about him so much that it wasn't really a mutual choice you splitting up?? That's awful that he's got someone else already though, that's hard to deal with. I don't think there's much that's gonna make it feel better for you except time - sorry. But get your self out and about, look at the positives that you've got from this experience (sorry, that sounded so naff when I put it down - I hope you know what I mean by it!), and try not to dwell on the past - and spend some time with your friends at The Other Side!! smile.gif

Awww sad.gif

*hands Pie a big pie (of her favorite variety) and hugs muchly*

I can't really suggest anything new...just try to keep yourself busy. I don't know if this is true for other people, but I tend to think about things more if I'm sitting around and watching TV or playing on the Internet. If I'm really upset, I have to go out with friends...or at least call them. It always helps me to get my mind off of things when I hear a friendly voice...especially if it's someone who can make me laugh easily.

Sometimes what I need is just an outlet to express what I'm feeling, so I can get rid of it and move on (like art, writing, etc). That can be tricky though...that may end up making you dwell even more. So I'd only suggest that if you feel it'll help you get over it to just get the feelings out.

Hmm.. you need a good song.. and some pie ala mode!! *hands you ice cream and pie*

Omg, omg, omg
You're dealing with a bore,
If you wanna forget this person,
just think he is a whore!
Listen to the song
The very song i sing,
It's all you needed all along
To forget every little thing!
Screw him, screw him, screw him,
Screw him up the wall!
Cuz you've got it all within,
So you can screw it all!
So do not worry
You've got too much enough!
And if he wants you back, you see
Then that is just too rough!

that song is so cool! i'm gonna make up a little tune, learn it and sing it all the time laugh.gif
yeah, i got a few mates that are better than most at making me smile etc, and i have been stalking them to keep me happy so that's ok. advice noted and followed, but i'm still a bit stuck at times like this when there's nothing else to do!!

I'm sorry to hear it's been difficult for you sad.gif

*Uber hugs*

You know where I am if you ever need someone to help take your mind off thing smile.gif

Other than that I can't really suggest anything as I'm not 100% sure what would work. Spending time with quality friends, shopping, going to the gym or exercising that man out of your hair all work for me. I also play the violin as a hobby so that takes up time. Also good to play someone fast and furious when I'm p'ed off laugh.gif

It's been a while since I needed distractions like that but I don't get to see my bloke during the week and I have developed those ways of making the time pass to when I get to see him next. I suppose it could work in a similar way? unsure.gif
