How to Get Over a Guy (You Still Like)

It's time to make a choice...

I know you're hurting right now, so let's dig straight in. You may be wondering if there is any hope to get over a guy. Time heals, you've probably heard that a million times, but what about in the meantime? Don't worry, I have some sneaky ways of making this hopeless situation bearable.

But right now you're faced with a crossroad. Either you try and win back your ex boyfriend, or you learn how to get over him. I'll discuss both options in full detail so whichever one you decide, I'm here to help you every step of the way.

How to Get Over a Guy

Maybe you don't want him back, that perfectly alright, but you want the suffering to be over. Time heals all wounds, and I assure this is true for breakups, even if you find that hard to believe at the moment.

But what they fail to consider is the unbearable pain of losing someone you love can take a while to escape you. So how do we get over a guy.

Let me tell you a story (stick with me here).

Two Blind Pilots

Two blind pilots both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a guide dog, and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane.

Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start up. The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming.

The plane moves faster and faster down the runway and the people sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport. As it begins to look as though the plane will plough in to the water, panicked screams fill the cabin. At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon all retreat into t heir magazines, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.

In the cockpit, one of the blind pilots turns to the other and says,"ya know, Bob, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and we're all gonna die."

Now you must be confused. What in the world does this story have to do with how to get over a guy? Maybe I've gone insane? But let me ask you a question.

You probably though the story was funny, maybe you though it was stupid, but I'll be willing to bet you that you didn't think of your ex once. Our mind is pretty simple, and it can only concentrate on one thing at a time. So when you're busy doing something, guess what, you don't think about your ex.

The secret to getting over a guy is to realize that you have full control over your thoughts and what you do. Do something fun, do something you've always wanted to, hang out with friends. The more you keep living your life, the more the pain starts to disapear.

Trust me I know how you feel because I've been in your shoes, and I'll be willing to bet you feel like crawling into a cave and hiding there for a couple hundred years. But let's make a deal. Give this a try for just one week. Pack your day with things that you love to do, and see if it makes a difference. What have you got to lose? Well, except for the relationship pain of course.

Love your hub and it has come at the perfect time for my daughter who I will pass on the advice to. She is devastated over her break-up (with no apparent reason for it) and unfortunately her ex is still texting her and telling her he still loves her....but needs time alone? She is very confused. But sincerely, thankyou.

This is so true. Keeping busy helps heaps. Getting over the guy i like has been so hard but hanging out with friends and family and doing things i really enjoy has helped me heaps. Of course theres times where i miss him badly but keeping myself busy has helped me forget him for a few hours during the day.
