Break-ups in relationships are never easy and it's worse when you are the one who gets dumped.

So, what's the best way to get over someone and get back in the dating scene? Here are some tips:

1. I highly recommend taking a dating break. Stay away from
romance and the dating scene for awhile. Give yourself time to heal your wounds and keep busy to occupy your mind instead of brooding or feeling sorry for yourself.

2. Focus heavily on your career and become a workaholic
temporarily. When not dating heavily, you will have more time to focus on your career. This is a good way to divert your attention away from focusing on a love that didn't last.

3. Go on a scavenger hunt throughout your apartment or house and remove anything that reminds you of your lost love. Throw them away, put them in storage, or hide them in the attic. This is a good way to bury the past and get on with your life.

4. Spend more time with your buddies and renew old friendships. During this transition time from being a couple to being single and free again is a good time to bond with friends to take your mind off of your old girlfriend.

5. Keep physically active - join a health club or local
softball team, join a bowling league, take tennis lessons, take up jogging, etc.

In closing, please don't jump back into the frying pan right away by looking for love on the rebound. Take a break and let your wounds heal and make a fresh start when you feel like you're over her and ready to start to dating again.
