Getting over an ex can be as annoying as trying to get over the common cold. Both require rest, patience, and a whole lot of "you time." Also you feel sick.
So if you're battling a broken heart or can't stop rolling your eyes at the sight of your ex-lover wrapping his arms around a pretty new girlfriend, it's about time you ditch the stalking, the sulking, and do something about it. I'm not talking about going on a million dates to try to find a new bae, though that could be fun and exciting. I'm talking about getting revenge. Here are the best ways (besides making a public spectacle of yourself.)
1. Get in shape
There's nothing as sexy as using your breakup as an excuse to get in the best shape of your life. Quit your gym membership, since you don't go anyway, and either sign up with a personal trainer or a workout studio with constant classes you can go to. Get yourself on a healthy meal plan and before you know it, your body will be banging and your ex will wonder why you aren't still crying over him in your pajamas, eating pizza.
2. Go get the job of your dreams
Channel all of the free time you now have, since you don't have to worry about spending time with a significant other and use that to start climbing the ladder toward the job of your dreams. Maybe that means you finally start your own business or maybe that means you start putting in extra effort and time at your current job for that raise and promotion you deserve.
3. Solo trip around the world. Or anywhere.
Pack your bags and plan a trip for yourself somewhere exotic and interesting. Somewhere your ex wishes they could have gone but they didn't have the vacation days to take or the energy to plan the trip. Go reclaim your freedom and independence by jet setting to a spot on the map that's always caught your eye.
4. Be completely yourself
Seriously do you. Start doing things that make you happy and before you know it, you will wear this new fun, fresh and fearless attitude toward life on your sleeves. People will start to notice that you're in a better place, now that you are doing what you want, when you want to. By the time your ex hits you up to get back together, you won't have time in your busy schedule to even answer his call, let alone give him a second chance.
