Get Over Being Dumped

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I am a 16-year-old student. My boyfriend of only one month just dumped me for reasons I am still not clear on. I feel very deeply about him, and I am having some trouble with this. I've tried dating other people, but that just seems to make it worse. He keeps dropping hints that he still has feelings for me, but I am just so confused. Please help.


Thank you.



Dear Angela,

Breakups are really hard, especially when it is not your choice. The best thing you can do for yourself is to try to focus on yourself, your friends, and activities you enjoy. Even if you don't really feel like doing this right now, get out there and do it anyway. In time, you will catch yourself actually having fun and realize you haven't thought about this guy for a while.  It takes time, so go easy on yourself!


Also, understand your ex-boyfriend's intentions don't really enter into your daily life unless he puts some action into his "hints." Even then, what you need to remember is the reason you and your ex broke up will continue if you go back out. When a relationship has ended, it is best to heal and move forward.


Hope this helps,

Your BeingGirl Experts
