Recently, a story spread around the internet about some lady who, after what was probably a rough breakup, spent an entire week in a KFC. (It was a 24 hour KFC, so it's not like she barricaded herself in or anything.) She just sat down in a booth and occasionally kept getting more chicken. I'm sure the guy that dumped her is regretting his decision now.
We've all heard people dramatically toss around lines about being addicted to love and even read some quotes that make the correlation between love and drugs that some heartbroken fool, thought up. Usually we brush it off and write these people off as stage-one, drama queens, even when you hear how they describe love (or love loss) in music; you're just like, "Come on! Way to be dramatic."
Breaking up with someone is always hard, even when you know that the person is wrong for you. What can be even harder though, is getting over them.

One of the best methods to a successful "breakover" is through exercise — in fact, survey respondents listed exercise as one of the top three methods for getting over a breakup.
