“What’s your best advice for getting over a guy? We met, I fell hard for him, we dated for a bit and then faded into oblivion. I hate missing someone I barely knew!”
Date someone else, of course! Don’t you know that the best way to get over one person is to get under someone else? Just kidding.
It always helps me to get things out in writing. Take a piece of paper, and write down everything that you liked about him, and everything that you miss about him. If it’s true that you barely knew him, then it will be a short list. And you’ll be able to see that you didn’t really know him, and that might make it easier.
Otherwise, I’d say to get over him the way you’d get over any guy. Whatever works for you - becoming best friends with Ben and Jerry, watching girly movies, going shopping, hanging out with friends, whatever. Friends are the key in any breakup, in my opinion. They’ll always be there for you, whether it’s to bash your ex for you or just to keep your mind off things.
Eventually, you’ll find someone who will stick around. But make sure you’re over this guy first! When you’re trying to get over someone, the last thing you need is someone else.
