Hi Anony, maybe this won’t help at all, but what I would like to say to you is that perhaps what you need is to allow yourself to feel the way that you are feeling at the moment, even if that means maintaining a sense of ‘false hope’. It sounds like you truly loved her, and after being together for 8 months, your feelings for her won’t disappear with the flip of a switch. It must be really painful to watch her move on that quickly. Who knows what is going on in her mind. At this point she won’t say anything different, and it’s a difficult thing to accept.
My point is.. allow yourself to miss her. It doesn’t mean you will miss her forever. Feelings do fade eventually, and for you it’s only been 2 months. There is no format that everybody should abide by. Some people might get over these things quicker and others won’t. It will all depend on you, but I promise you will be able to move on eventually. When I was trying to get over a guy (who I never even had a relationship with) I ‘researched’ all these answers on what the best way would be to get over someone. But I realized there is no answer and that I just needed to give myself time, however long it would take. You were in a relationship with this girl, so it isn’t even comparable. It is indeed probably best not to contact her anymore. And if it helps, to try to cut out all contact (facebook, email etc.) anything that would remind you of her.
