  • Forget about the boy! Always remind yourself that "If he left you, he wasn't worth having".
  • Always ask yourself, "What is the worse thing that could happen?" It is really up to you how big you make it. You might want him, but you don't need him.
  • If you ever come across with him just greet him politely but distantly.
  • Let him know that you are happy without him but still talk to him.
  • Do not lurk on his social media!! You'll only end up with your feelings hurt with seeing his interactions with other females.
  • Know that you can always get better than him.


  • Don't beg him, or please him. Just ignore him. He is losing you, you are not losing him.
  • Never say "I miss you." or other things. That makes him feel like he won and eventually makes you easy to walk all over.
  • Don't go to places where he goes frequently.
  • Don't have a close contact with his friends.
