man, I'm really sorry to hear that. It's never an easy situation, and I know cuz I've been there. I don't know of any pithy things to say and anyways those never made me feel any better. But for what it's worth, things WILL get better and this WILL pass. Put on a good album (one that doesn't remind you of her) and go for a long drive. Do a random act of kindness for a stranger. Pet a warm kitten. Things that will take your mind off yourself and put you in touch with the world around you. And you know you can lean on the people here.

There's nothing to say to make it better.

Maybe after some time goes by, you can think of all the other ladies out there waiting for you.

I'm so sorry, Pate. {{{{hugs}}}}}

This moment will pass...listen to clarity's advice. Those lads have gotten me through many a rough situation.

Keep your chin up!

And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time

Sorry to hear that. Give your friends a call. Take a deep breath and think to yourself "Shit happens for a reason." I know that it's hard but everyday will become easier. It's her loss.

Oh, if old enough, have a beer.

You'll find someone who'll stay with you for life. Music helps, like sulawesigirl4 said.

That's horrible Pate. I got dumped on Valentine's Day once. The worst part was that I went all out that night; A great dinner at a fancy restaurant, expensive chocolates, roses and handcuffs.

Women are inexplicable and cruel.
