1. Understand that it’s the best for both of you. 
He just saved you from future heartache. It means he wanted you to be part of his life for good. Because if you will move on to the next level, there is a possibility that it may not work and he might lose you. Just be happy you have a friend like that. Sometimes a guy chooses you to become his friend rather than a girlfriend not because you’re not attractive or not girlfriend material, but simply because he would rather keep you as his friend forever than risk losing you by having a relationship. –from GIRLTalker chicafabulosa 

2. Be stronger than your emotions.
It's all in the mind. Once you decided to move on, nothing or no one should stop you. Be stronger than your emotions. Easier said than done, but really, there's no trick in moving on. You just have to decide to move on and stick to it 100 percent every day. –from GIRLTalker simang 

3. Spend time with your friends and family. 
When we broke up, I realized, I had changed not for the better–I spent less time with them while my ex and I were together. I lost the time I used to spend with my books, cook meals for the family, and all other things I’ve taken for granted because of him –from GIRLTalker huggykaye  

4. Stop stalking and keep yourself busy with other things.
Start talking to other people. Make yourself busy with work and when you’re alone, pray. –from GIRLTalker The Greatest is LOVE 

5. Stop torturing yourself.
You feel regret, you feel ashamed and guilty, you rehash, and you obsess. It’s all an exercise in suffering. The only way to feel peace is to quiet the thoughts that threaten it. –from GIRLTalker redhead69 

6. Try traveling alone.
I made the effort to really reach out to my friends, enjoy my time with them. Same with my family, nag-organize ako ng out-of-town, minsan sa bahay lang videoke with my brothers and mom and tito and tita din. Nag-plan din ako ng sarili kong travels, etc. Anything that would help me move on. I did all that hindi para ipakita sa kanya na kaya kong wala siya, but para ipakita sa sarili ko na okay lang naman pala ako eh kahit wala sya. And I did move on. –from GIRLTalker pumpkin13 

7. Begin to focus on yourself instead of what he’s doing. 
I stopped stalking, and nung wala na ko nalalaman about them, nasanay na lang ako na wala na akong pakialam. I focused on my thing rather than theirs. Kasi naisip ko, ano naman ngayon kung makasagap ako ng balita? Will that make me feel good? Or mag iisip lang ako lalo? –from GIRLTalker pumpkin13 

8. Totally avoid the person.
What I did, I totally avoided the person. Bitter kasi ako. Kaya I treated him as if patay na siya. It was hard kasi magka-officemate kami. Imagine seeing that person every day. I blocked him sa Messenger, told him not to talk to me unless it was work-related, moved my desk, changed my routine para lang maiwasan siya. Then I stopped talking about it and him. No emo posts sa social media. Then na surprise na lang ako, I woke up one day, it didn't hurt anymore. Can't really say I have moved on pero at least it doesn't torture me anymore. – from GIRLTalker cry_mandy 

9. Let time help you. 
Get interested in other fruitful things, persons, or other activities.  Be busy doing good things. Look forward, not backward. Be thankful for the good things you had and let go. Let time help you and don't hurry too much to move on. –from GIRLTalker The5thElement  

10. Forgive yourself.
Keep in mind that if you want to feel love again in the future, the first step is to prepare yourself to give and receive it. You can only do that if you feel love toward yourself and that means forgiving yourself. –from GIRLTalker redhead69
