A roundup of YourTango's best breakup advice.

8. Don't Prolong The Misery. We've seen it before. We've done it before. We've tried staying friends. We've slept together one last time. We've continued seeing mutual friends, and have checked in to see what's up on Facebook. While some exes can evolve into friends, trying desperately to hang onto him and keeping in him your life—in whatever capacity possible—will only make the healing process more impossible.

9. Eradicate Him From Your Electronic Life. There's no need for you to see that he hung out with Krissy the other night, or that he poked Tamara last week. Delete him from your phone, your Facebook account, your life and watch the supportive electronic missives roll in.
