14 things to stop doing now:

  1. Listening to love songs that remind you of him
  2. Going to places where you spent time together
  3. Thinking about the good times you had together
  4. Communicating with him (erase his phone number, email address, texts, etc.)
  5. Being friends with benefits or being the other woman
  6. Wishing and hoping that he'll come back to you
  7. Being in denial that it's over
  8. Looking at his pictures, cards, love letters and his Facebook page
  9. Staying in contact with his friends and family
  10. Talking continually about him with your friends, family and anyone who will listen
  11. Trying to run into him in bars and nightclubs
  12. Looking for him on online dating sites
  13. Trying to make him jealous by flirting with or connecting with his male friends
  14. Letting yourself get rundown (i.e. over-eating, not exercising, etc.)

In addition to stopping the above things, the following practices will help you transition and move forward with more ease and grace. Ending Relationships Gracefully
