8 Proven Ways to Help Your Ex Get Over You

July 6, 2022

So you’ve just served your lover breakfast. But to make them feel better, you try to stay in contact with them. Don’t!

If you don’t know how to handle things after serving a person breakfast, I’ll show you how. .

First, you need to feel bad

You just showed another person’s child pepper. You should at least feel bad for what you just did.

Don’t breadcrumb them

If you don’t know what breadcrumbing is, it’s the unfair act of giving a person just enough attention to keep them interested in you. It’s a wicked thing to do because you’ll just be serving them breakfast more than one.

Block them and don’t attempt to call them after they block you back

You don’t want to give them PTSD when they’re trying to get over you. If you feel somehow about them blocking you, just face your front and mind your business.

But you can Invite them to church

This is the best time to remind them that they’re your brother/sister in the lord. They came to you trying to find love but they found God. How awesome is that?

You don’t want them running into you at random places. Since you asked for space, it’s best to put plenty of space between yourselves by moving to another city.

Respect their wishes

If they don’t want to be friends, don’t try to be friends with them by all means. Respect their wishes so they don’t vex and come after you for serving them the breakfast they weren’t craving.
