    Move on with lightning speed. No need to mourn some guy who's history, and the quickest way to forget is by getting lost in kisses from a new love.

  • Look super hot

    It's not just a cliche. Looking good is the best revenge. Even if you are still a little blue, put on your best “I’m a total babe” face. Make sure he knows you are not going to just wallow with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s.

  • Sow your wild oats

    This is the perfect time to go a little wild. I'm not saying sleep with every guy who smiles at you in the bar, but the occasional hookup will be fun. You deserve to let loose after wasting away years on your no-good ex.

  • Go for someone totally different

    Pick a guy who is completely opposite your ex. That Harley-riding bad boy didn't work out for you, so why go for the same type. Try a bookworm or artsy dude. You will be pleasantly surprised and he won't ever remind you of that loser you used to date.

  • Expose the jerk

    Talking about what a jerk your former boyfriend is can be incredibly cathartic. So pull a Taylor Swift and let the world know what an a**hole he is.
