Oh man, is it Heartbreak Week here at WTF?! or what?
First, The Bachelorette sobbed on the beach. Then everyone cried over yesterday’s guest blog. And now one of our readers is finding it impossible to get over her ex. Sometimes amidst the fun of the post-dating world, it can be easy to forget that pain is a necessary part of the romantic experience.
To paraphrase what I know of The Bible (and let’s be real, that’s not much), there’s a time for everything – for love and excitement and giddiness and passion, and for hurt and longing and frustration and reflection. Sometimes you have control over the timing, and sometimes you don’t. And that inescapable truth brings us to today’s Ask Jess column: How Do I Get Over Him?
Be forewarned: there’s some tough love being shared in this column. But I know you can take it.
Jess is the co-creator of Dating & Hookup, alongside her childhood best friend Becky Lynch, and is the author of the book - yep! - Dating & Hookup. She never tires of hearing your post-dating stories. She wants you to enjoy your love life, and is full of advice on how to do so.
