Ammanda Major is a Senior Consultant on Sex Therapy at Relate and also write’s the charity’s regular agony aunt column, Ask Ammanda.A friend once told me his test of whether he's over an ex is whether it would bother him if they were dating someone else.
Often, getting over someone means dealing with all the practical paraphernalia that partnerships bring in their wake.Unless you were in an abusive relationship, the fact is that both you and your partner probably contributed to the downfall of your partnership.Taking time to work out what you could have done differently is likely to be helpful for the future but constant recriminations to your ex or to yourself will only drag you down and make getting over what’s happened even harder.It’s not uncommon for Relate counsellors to listen to couples talk about problems that have their beginnings in how a former relationship ended.Not surprisingly, the first year following a break up is often the hardest.If we think about it, the great sadness about losing someone you’ve loved means that we were human enough to love deeply, so in many ways although terribly painful, great sadness about the loss of a relationship is testament to how much we’re capable of loving someone.
Knowing we have the capacity to do that means we’re usually well placed to find new loves and relationships.I would say though as a rule of thumb that if it’s affecting your ability to enjoy life and nothing seems to be improving, then talking to somebody objective such as a Relate counsellor can be really beneficial.So, in essence, trying to escape from painful feelings by throwing yourself into another relationship or just glossing over the how sad you feel isn’t going to help.You shouldn't read into it as a clue about your crush's type.You deserve to date someone who likes you for you, not you trying to be someone else for them.Yes, they are putting it up online, but don't allow yourself to be tempted to start tracking their every move.
