    Oh another fun game me and my friends came up with!! (it doesn't matter if you're good at drawing or not) get some marker that you could put on a mirror and wipe off. Draw a pic of your ex on the mirror. Get a cup of water and some toilet paper and make paper wads. Dip them in the water and throw at the picture! This is a fun game that if done with friends can relieve stress, hurt, and even though you are throwing them at a drawing OF your ex it will make you not really think about them... unless you are like me and my friends and throw the wads at different areas and discuss how he/she would react if they got hit there. It's great fun!

    Start working out, you not only are doing something to get her/him off your mind, but your getting into shape and healthy at the same time. Real ego/confidence boost.

    I've been writing poems for 5 years (since I was 12) It really is very helpful and enjoyable. So you writing poetry helps a lot. Although... most of my poems turn out depressing >.<

    I think a puppy would pass the time well. A dogs love is unconditional, plus you may meet new people taking your dog out to the park. Another thing to do is join a gym. Getting yourself back in shape will rebuild your confidence and help put on back on the right track.

    Travel somewhere where you do not know anyone at all and just enjoy yourself. Take up a class at a community college like cooking, art, etc. Meet new people and new friends.

    First and foremost, focus on yourself, now is "Me Time". See where u could have improved your relationship and always be with one who is willing to work at the relationship as well a yourself. Never ever give your all to someone who can't return the love and the next time around it may work out better.

    This is similar to what most people are saying about getting hobbies and doing new things... but maybe also become a fan of something that you enjoy.
    Im a huge Cleveland Indians fan... I go to tons of games each summer and really get into following baseball. Im going through a break up now and I really hope that they can bring me out of my slump when the season starts next week.
    I always really liked the one quote from the movie Fever Pitch. I don't remember it word for word, but basically Jimmy Fallon's character is explaining how the Red Sox never let you down. They're always there to play, every day at the same time. If it rains, they make it up to you. They can't leave you or divorce you.

    I just wrote a loving goodbye letter to ex (that of course I'll never ever send anywhere). God, its amazing how good it feels to just get that all out. I highly recommend! It feels so much better to be down the loving happy thoughts rather than focusing on the pain and anger.

    Rearrange your furniture or change the artwork on your walls. It will help you set up a space that is not imbedded with memories and you can find a way to make your place feel new and yours again... I've been having trouble coming back to my room, and trouble sleeping missing him beside me, so it helped somewhat to make my space clean and new again.

    I know you're supposed to throw away all the photos, but I just found looking at an unflattering photo of him a bit therapeutic.

    I agree. For me, music is one of the most powerful tools to help change my mood. With the right music, I can put myself into just about any mood I want - though I guess I'm a little more into than most. Playing the guitar (or any instrument I imagine) is another great way to become totally consumed by something for a few hours... it really passes the time..

    A word of caution however: The wrong music can tear you apart, so be careful what you listen to :)

    Yeah, god the "wrong music" can really screw things up. I never realized how almost every song on the radio seems to be about broken hearts. In my 30 years on this earth, I never quite understood them. Now, unfortunately, I do. Well, I guess everyone needs to get their heart broken at least once (or twice by the same person in my case). ; )
