    I know! It sucks. But also if possible, stay away from him physically. Don't check on him on Facebook and etc. Maybe you have a good friend that can help you stay away from him? Good luck! I know it's hard😒

    Great advice that I will not follow.

    Stop following any of his social media accounts pronto
    Use whatever way will best keep you from sneaking a peak. Block him if you have to. No sense in pining over someone who's not getting your awesomeness

    This will also not happen.
    But is actually not really a problem, he doesn't really use social media much.

    He's not, don't be unhelpful
    πŸ˜› But seriously it would be horrible of me to think of him like this

    Ask if they'd be down for a threesome πŸ’πŸΌ

    Imagine he has the smelliest breath
    Just think about how he loves raw onions and indian food. Think about all the tartar on his teeth. He's so gross. He has to pay his dentist double to even be able to scrape all the gunk off. You are better without him. His girlfriend hates his breath too.

    This sounds helpful but also disgusting?
    And I am not sure I will cope with it

    Allow yourself one final afternoon or evening of whining about said crush
    Get a good friend to listen to you talk about how great he is. Tell friend to cut you off after 2 hours (absolute max) of moping. The rest of the day you're not allowed to talk about him while you hang out. It actually works

    Requires discipline from both me AND my friend but I will give it a go

    Listen to Heartburn by Nora Ephron while on a 2hr long walk.

    Look if it comes to that, I'll consider it

    Fill your time with things you love
    Instead of thinking about him. Listen to your favorite music, blast it and dance. If you love reading, do that. Or art or whatever you love to do. The busier you are with things that make you happy, the less you'll have time to wish he was yours. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ don't forget to be patient with yourself and give it time.

    YOU WIN
    For achievable and enjoyable advice that will not require any strength of discipline I do not have!
