It was an 8-month relationship that has been over for 4 months, right? I think it’s time to start dating other people. Back in my day – I was 22 – when I was broken-hearted over a relationship that was super intense but not super long-lasting (nine months), my friends told me that the best way to get over one guy was to get under another. I’m not advocating for jumping into bed with someone else if that’s not what you want, but hitting the market again and going on dates and reminding yourself that the manipulative ex is far from the only guy out there can be pretty helpful in moving on.
