I have found that the only way to forget someone is to find someone perfect for you.

There's a Spanish saying that goes something like this. "A new nail can take out the old rusty one in the same spot". It loses some of it's translation, but hopefully you get the point.

Also time is a great healer and medicine, through time, the memories do start to fade and one gets stronger.

There are also a few books available on how to ease the pain of a broken heart.

Let us know how you are doing..

Never forget... In time youll be able to accept it, but dont forget about her, there will be times when you feel like complete shit, and you might need good memories... you obviously cared about her, but erasing her existance from your mind is not the way to heal yourself... It may take a while, but youll move on, probably to better things, who knows what the future has lined up for ya

You wanna forget your woman? Well, there's only a few things that are gonna do it.
1-A new woman.
2-Time usually heals even the deepest wounds.
3-Lots of drugs!
Hang in there, dude! We've all been through it. Peace!

The goal is ELEVATION!

One word....NEW.

I handled it by getting NEW everything. I moved, threw out my clothes, all the things he gave me, I threw a vase off of a bridge, cut all my hair, got a tattoo, and went out and partied a lot. Get rid of as much as you can, be ruthless... just get rid of it. Get new stuff, new music, new people. I also found burning things helps.

It worked for me, but perhaps this approach isn't for everybody.

OK Pate-

Here it is-
1. Find Something to do
2. Find Something to look forward to.
3. Find Someone to love.

..and go meet a bunch of new sexxies in the meantime.

tru that.

Pate, there will be others. My solution in college was dumb and didn't work, and I only tell it as a warning not to go this route. It consisted of a case of bud light, a few gunniss, U2's WOWY, all my beer drinking buddies, and a wall I could fight until I would break a hand. Dumb, stupid, but on the other hand I was only hurting myself.

I guess you gotta take time to grieve the loss but seeing that loss in the light of the fact that there will be a tomorrow and there will be other women.

There was one woman that took me years to get over. She's getting married in august. It's been more than four years since we broke up, we're still best of friends, but I can't get myself to go to her wedding. Four years, best friends, but the hurt is still there, and probably always will be.

love bites mate

You can try and try, even if you know in your head you have to move on however, if your heart won't let you...there is little you can do. I'm guessing it just takes time and even without realising it at first, you move on...

I feel your pain Pate

Personally... I broke up with someone almost eight (pathetic, I know) years ago that I still was never completely over. I would still find myself comparing him to people... etc etc. Just in the last few months though I met my current boyfriend who just completely blew me away - I honestly dont even give the old guy a second though. At the risk of sounding cliche - there's someone else out there that you were meant to be with instead - things happen for a reason!
I hope that you are feeling better, it'll take time but it will happen.

Love don't need to find a way
You find your own way
I forget that I can't stay
And so I say that
All roads lead to where you are
All roads lead to where you are

I think just time Pate. it's not something you can force yourself through and it's not something you can run away from.

Here's to hoping you feel better soon.
