Understand and acknowledge what you’re really mourning

Like a real breakup, what you feel right now is a form of mourning. In a breakup, you’re mourning the future you thought you had with this person. You’re mourning the loss of an important relationship in your life.

Use what you thought they might be to find what you really want

Though there might have been a lot of details about this person that you made up, it doesn’t make that stuff useless. You can use that information to your advantage.

Open yourself up to others by getting back out there

As painful as it can be to learn someone you’re crushing on doesn’t return the feeling, it’s not a breakup. So it’s important that you not sit home and wallow. Instead, open yourself up to others by getting back into the dating world.
