Your favorite restaurant
Look, when you break up with someone, there’s an unwritten rule that you no longer go to the restaurant you mutually loved. Why? Because if the other person introduced you to said restaurant, there’s a good chance that they’re still going to go there and you’re going to run into them. What’s easier? Picking a new restaurant to love or randomly going for a nice night out to eat and running into your ex on a date with someone else a week after you broke up? Yeah, find a new place to eat.
If the sex sucked, I assumed you wouldn’t be in a relationship long enough to care about a breakup. So, let’s work on the assumption that the sex was great. Unfortunately, it’s time to forget about it. Remembering how good the sex was will just make you want to go and have sex with them. Against my better judgment, I’m urging you to go find someone new to have sex with. There’s no better way to get over someone than to get under someone new.
Did their friends become your friends? That’s cute. Because if the two of you broke up, that means you’re splitting up the friends as well. You can’t assume that their friends, no matter how close you became with them, will remain your friends as well. Nobody likes to be caught in the middle. So, there’s a good chance that you’ll both be leaving the relationship the relationship with the same friends you came with. And trust me, it’s a much cleaner break that way.
Their phone number
Come on, stop it. Don’t even think about calling them. Delete the number. And, because you’ve probably memorized it, try to forget it immediately. Don’t drunk dial, don’t drunk text, don’t call up begging for another chance, don’t pretend like everything is cool. Just please, let it go.
There’s going to come a point in time when you miss the person and your relationship. So, you’re going to want to make up some kind of bullshit excuse to see them, run into them, give them another chance, so on and so forth. Well, forget about it. Don’t do it. Just remember that there’s a reason you broke up in the first place. Stay strong and try to move on.
