aside from suicide and finding a new love, what are the best ways?
No, Scotch whiskey.
No, seriously, it takes time. Some people think you need a month to get over the end of a relationship for every week the relationship lasted. I find this formula silly, but it does take time, and it's not so much based on how much time you spent with your recent ex, but rather how you felt about him or her and what you thought your future together was going to be like.
I mean, if you were thinking about marriage, and the other party was thinking about the next person, then of course you're going to be devastated for a while. But it'll get better. The hurt will fade as you get on with life and do stuff you enjoy doing.
Finding a rebound partner can be fun for a bit, but in the long run it's not such a great idea. Once they've helped you feel better about yourself and life in general, they've served their purpose, and then you'll have to break up with them, etc....
Suicide is not a good idea:
"Guns aren't lawful;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live."
If you're seriously thinking about suicide, you need to talk to someone face to face--your mom or dad, your best friend, a social worker of some kind, a minister or priest, someone who loves you and who you trust. Heartbreak hurts, and it will hurt for a long time, but the hurt is not permanent. Death is. You're already hurting enough. You don't need hurt yourself. Talk to your friends. That's what they're for.

If you were heart-broken, how would you explain it?What type of pain would you feel? How would it affect you? And do you think you could ever get out of it? (ever escape it?)
