What to do when you still love your ex

What to do when you still love your ex

Breakups are tough, but they don’t have to be. You can survive a breakup and still be happy, even if you still love your ex. What to do when you still love your ex. Here’s how:

Stay friends.

If you can, try to stay friends with your ex. It’s not always easy. But it’s worth it if you can manage it. If you can’t be friends with them at all, then just try to avoid awkwardness by being civil and friendly whenever possible.

If your relationship ended on good terms and both of you are able to move on from each other in a healthy way (no one did anything terrible), there’s no reason why the two of you shouldn’t remain friendly after breaking up! You may even discover that having an ex-lover around is fun. You might get along better now than when things were more serious between the two of you!

Take a break.

Taking a break from the relationship is a great way to give yourself some space and time away from your ex. It allows you to get your mind clear and figure out what you want in life, without being clouded by emotions.

If you decide that it’s time for a break from your ex, here are some tips on how long it should be:

  • A couple of days at most! You don’t want this break to last forever because then they may think that things between the two of you are over for good (which isn’t necessarily true). Also, if it does last longer than expected and then ends up being permanent–or even worse–then there will be no going back! So keep things short but sweet with no strings attached...or else risk losing everything else besides just him/her too!”

Don’t give up on love, just this relationship.

You can still love someone, even after a relationship has ended. It’s not as simple as “I’ll love you forever,” but it might be something like:

  • I will always have a place in my heart for you.
  • I will always remember what we had together and the good times we shared.
  • I will always care about how you are doing and what is happening in your life (even if it makes me feel jealous).

Be happy on your own.

You can be happy on your own. It’s not a bad thing, and it doesn’t mean that you’re not worthy of love. It just means that when you’re with someone else, the focus isn’t on them making you feel good–it’s on the two of you working together to make each other feel good.

If there was something wrong with your relationship in the first place (and there may have been), this will help bring out some of those issues and force both parties to deal with them instead of sweeping them under the rug or ignoring them until they become too big to ignore anymore.

You can survive a breakup and still be happy, even if you still love your ex.

There is no rule that says you must get over someone in order to be happy. In fact, letting go of an old relationship might not make you happier at all — especially if the person who broke up with you was abusive or unfaithful or simply didn’t treat you right. The key is knowing how to deal with it so that when the time comes for another relationship (or several!), there will be no baggage weighing down your current love life:


I hope this article has given you some ideas for how to move forward in your life after heartbreak. It’s not easy, but it is possible! You may have even read these tips and thought “I can do that” or “That sounds like something I could try.” If so, then congratulations: You’re already on your way to recovery from heartbreak.
