Unhappy So, my girlfriend broke up with me... =/

Title says it all really...
My girlfriend of 2 years just broke up with me, out the blue.

i know you guys don't really wanna hear me whine on about this, but i'm sure there's people on here that have been through a lot worse...

so what do you do? you know, when you can't eat, or sleep, and you don't know what to do with yourself...

Well, hardest part, is trying to move on...
Seriously, once you "free" yourself, you will be much better, and even think "How could I have felt so bad?".
Probably now, all you are thinking about is her, and what went wrong, but still, try to go out with your friends, basically to occupy your mind with other stuff haha

It could be a long way, but it always gets better good luck man

Re: So, my girlfriend broke up with me... =/

Hah, i never played more guitar than when i split up with my girlfriend. My skills improved leaps and bound during that phase.

I feel for you bud, but trust me being single opens up a whole new world of freedom that you may not appreciate at this time right now. You can pretty much do what you want now, go where you want and do () what you want. Probably doesn't seem all that much now, but if you step back you'll really appreciate this time being single.

Re: So, my girlfriend broke up with me... =/

I can only ask one question: What did you really lose? For the most part, the only thing that is hurting is your ego. It's more like a "what's wrong with me that she would break up with me." If you really assess what it is you're now missing, it's minimal, even though it doesn't seem like that now......but it will.

Write a song!!!!!!!!

You have one of the 3 key ingredients of a country song going right now, just need your truck to break down and your dog to die.

Get to it!!!!!

p.s. women come and go. The right one will come along and there will be no "breaking up" ever again. Even through the worst of times.

That really sucks man. Just know that, like others already said, that women come and go. And when they go, you can either sit in a corner, all by yourself and feel bad about yourself, or you can rationalise what has happened and get on with your life. Talk about it with close friends, get rid of useless stuff you've got that reminds you of her, things like that.

If she really dumped you out of the blue without at least giving another chance, then she is not worth all the grief. Good luck man.

Chin up.

Take up new hobby, preferably something that gets you out and socialising. There is nothing like making new friends and meeting people to give you your confidence back.

You will always have your brothers here at jemsite.

You NEED to be listening to the Eagles Hell Freezes Over album. Continually. And crying a bit.

Helped me loads, and yeah, all the other advice is good, write a song, drink some beer and a few weeks jump some slapper down the disco

+1!

Sorry to hear about your troubles, Sponge. It'll get better in time. Believe it!
And it might sound corny, but in times like that I'm so glad I'm a musician. My guitar has been right there with me in the worst of times. It's really helped me keep my sanity. As much crap as we go through as musicians, having that channel to reflect these emotions through is a blessing. I don't know how non-musicians do it. Other hobbies I suppose.
Pick up your guitar and play!
And think about the next girl!
Good luck!

Time is a great healer, at the moment you may be wearing the rose tinted spectacles and thinking of all the good stuff. Try thinking of some of the bad that you wont miss !

Throw yourself into something you enjoy and you'll be fine eventually !
