10 Tips for Getting Over Your Hot Ex-Girlfriend

September 21, 2023

We've all been there - you were dating an absolute stunner, but things didn't work out and now you can't stop thinking about her. Even though the relationship ended, it's normal to have a hard time getting over an attractive ex. Here are 10 tips to help you move on:

1. Remove reminders of her from your life

This one may seem obvious, but if you have photos of her, gifts she gave you, or mementos from your relationship, it's time to pack them away. Seeing objects that remind you of her will only make it harder to get over her. Out of sight, out of mind.

2. Stop checking her social media

Resist the urge to cyber-stalk her on social media. Seeing her posts, photos, and updates will only feed your obsession and make it harder to heal. If you need to, unfollow or block her for a little while.

3. Spend time with friends and family

Surround yourself with a strong support system. Make plans to keep busy, have fun, and take your mind off the breakup. Quality time with loved ones can help boost your mood.

4. Get active and work out

Along with socializing, focusing on fitness is a great distraction technique. Hit the gym, start running, play sports - anything to get active. Exercising helps release feel-good endorphins and can reduce stress.

5. Immerse yourself in hobbies and interests

Pick up that guitar again, get lost in an engrossing video game, binge your favorite TV shows. Dive into the hobbies and activities you love to take a mental break from the breakup.

6. Treat and pamper yourself

Do some relaxing self-care activities to practice mindfulness and treat yourself nicely. Try getting a massage, reading an uplifting book, or testing out a face mask. Remind yourself that you deserve to feel happy and cared for.

7. Consider counseling or therapy

If you are really struggling to move forward, it may be helpful to speak to a counselor or therapist. They can help give perspective and teach coping strategies to overcome heartbreak.

8. Date casually and meet new people

When the time feels right, consider dipping your toes back into dating. Getting to know new romantic prospects helps shift focus to someone new. Websites like Filteroff offer easy, pressure-free ways to meet dates online.

9. Write down your feelings

Keep a journal and write out your emotions, both good and bad. Putting your feelings on paper can help process them. Writing can be very cathartic following a breakup.

10. Be patient and give it time

Above all, be kind to yourself and allow time to heal. Getting over an ex, especially one you were very attracted to, takes time and active effort. With patience and by focusing inward, your heart will mend.
