Step-By-Step Guide To Getting Over Your First Love

Hello, fellow adventurers!

Today I have something very special for you, a step-by-step guide! I’ve never done one of these before and by no stretch of the imagination am I an expert on this subject. However, I’m dealing with this issue and thought it’d be interesting to share my thoughts. It’s really hard for me to move on and let go of people and things, unfortunately it’s inevitable that you’re going to have to leave something/someone behind on your adventure. Here is my awesome guide to getting over your first(or second) love:

Step One: Gather up all of your favorite food and candy. Eat. Chocolate is always great in these situations, fries are yummy and ice cream is well…ice cream.

Step Two: Watch your favorite movies while laying in bed covered in blankets. I suggest Disney movies, and terrible but funny Romantic Comedies.

Step Three: Cry. Just do it. Whether it be in the shower, in bed, in an empty classroom, anywhere.

Step Four: Call up your friends and rant, you will feel slightly better.

Step Five: Resist the urge to text/call them. You miss them, I know. It’s hard and you might even screw this part up, it’s okay. You’re human, but resist. 90% of the time it won’t make things any better. The odds are against you on this one.

Step Six: Surround yourself with friends, laugh! THIS IS IMPORTANT. Laughter cures heartache like nothing else in the world. Distraction is key, plus you’ll be having fun while you’re at it.

Step Seven: Kiss other people.(optional, but I’ve been told it helps.)

Step Eight: Allow yourself to cry, don’t be ashamed to do so.

Step Nine: Repeat steps 1-9 if necessary.(It probably will be.)

Step Ten: Discover that moving on is hard and can take a really long time and it’s okay to be sad sometimes. Chin up, beautiful/handsome. You’re awesome and love will come your way again when you are ready for it!

I hope this helps you guys and please let me know if there’s anything you do after a break-up that cures heartache!

Until next time,

  1. I take the challenge and I will write my own step-by-step guide. As a guy I can honestly say that I don’t really get step 1. And step 2. Three, four, five, six and eight make perfect sense though. 🙂 Seven… no.

    I hope you find the strength to follow your own advices! : )


    1. Hey! Thanks for reading and commenting! Step one and two are kind of specific to me I guess. Watching movies in bed is a good way to just cry it out and food is comforting in situations. I also don’t agree with seven, but my friends have been pushing me to get a “rebound”. Hope it works out for you! Thank you again! ~K.D.
