We are each too valuable to be broken apart and depressed by the end of a relationship. Be strong.
This is the story of a young woman who met a man and fell in love. They were perfect for each other. In a month he confessed to her that he had never met anyone like her before and she made him feeling things he had never felt for a person before. Naturally, she felt the same way.
Sounds like a typical love story, no? Sure, except it didn’t exactly end that way.
YourTango's Break Up With Your Ex Day helped readers get over past relationships and move on.
On February 13, 2011, YourTango celebrated the very first annual Break Up With Your Ex Day, a day on which we urged people to let go of painful memories, insidious social media connections and dead weight relationship baggage in an attempt to move on in both love and life. We asked you to unfollow, untag, delete, block and erase. How did YourTango readers do?

Somewhere between the point where it ended and that point in my life where I knew I had to leave New Jersey, Sasha dragged me to Atlantic City. We walked around, we talked, we saw a fortune teller. Who in five minutes looked at me with tears in her eyes and told me that no one deserves to be as heart broken as I was. She took my hand and told me about my Bad Love...about Matt, only she referred to him as a soul mate connection and that that love had changed me forever.
When it comes to dating and relationships, everything isn't always black and white. Because of all of the variables (different personalities, history, goals, timing, etc...), one-size-fits-all advice just can't apply to EVERY situation.
However, I CAN say with confidence that, during/after a breakup, there IS a healthy code of conduct that should apply to everyone, regardless of their exact circumstances.
I went through a bad breakup. It traumatized me emotionally, but I could not let it get the best of me. I never got any closure or reason for it. I realized I had to move on with my life or I would be stuck.
The dark and dreary dumpsters are no fun place to be and it’s easy to get sucked into a deep hole of self-pity, doubt and sadness. But you do not have to let a break-up break you! You can start by following this recovery plan
Have you ever checked up on your ex's new girlfriend?
I’m not proud of this, but I am kind of obsessed with my ex’s new girlfriend. Not in an Alicia Silverstone in “The Crush” sort of way—I am not going to trap the chick in a shed and set a hive of bees on her to attack. That would be crazy! No, I just like to look at her Facebook page sometimes. It’s been set to private ever since the day I told my ex that I suspected he was lying to me about his relationship with her. He must have told her I was onto them, because suddenly I didn’t have as much access to this mysterious girl I’d only ever met twice, who slipped in and changed my life without me noticing.
