Breakups hurt. Period. For anyone who has been dumped (or has initiated the breakup), there's nothing more annoying than having others tell you to "get over it and move on."

Getting over a breakup is never easy, and if you've spent months or years invested in someone emotionally, socially and even financially, it can be hard to picture yourself with someone new — or alone. And although breakups tend to leave a lingering negative feeling for the first little while, moving on means letting go and doing things for yourself, says clinical hypnotherapist and author Colin Christopher.

The period of being single again should allow you to not only rediscover yourself, but also to start learning when it's the right time to get back into the dating world.
