Tips to heal a broken heart?



Whatever persona I may present on here, a cocky, confident, Casanova, whatever. It is partly true, but that is only one side of me. No one is immune to a broken heart, and neither am I.

Today this adorable Puerto Rican girl broke mine. I'd never gotten butterflies like this with any other girl, and I'd known her for several months now. I wanted to take it very slow with her because I had a feeling she was pretty special.

I finally stepped up to the plate and told her how much I liked her and that I wanted to date her, I expected her to just throw her arms around me and say "Yes! Of course!". This is what I am used to.

But she got really shy, blushed, and said the infamous: "I like you as a friend" line. Oooooo. That stung. I hadn't heard that since I was about 17 or 18. She also said she had an eye on some other guy or whatever, I wasn't really paying attention at that point.

What should I do, MTF? I come to you as a humbled James Bond, an Austin Powers who's mojo has taken a hit. Should I just forget her and go for another girl (most likely scenario)?

I still want her

Re: Tips to heal a broken heart?

You are just upset she said no to you.
You shouldn't allow them to say no to you.

So you suggest I go back and make her fall for me? I was considering this.

Re: Tips to heal a broken heart?

Once you do you will probably stop caring.

Alternatively, give herself a month of break from thinking of her, and then check if she was all that worth attention.

And the best you can do is ignore, ignore, ignore and one more time ignore her.

I think this is what I am going to do. That, and date around.

We'll see what happens. I just need to recover QUICKLY from this. I've got a local tournament this weekend and the last thing I want is to be thinking about her while I'm stepping up to the line to serve. Mentally I need to block it out.

Cool.

Or post on MTF 48/7. I've heard finishingmove was awake for 40 consecutive hours. He can tell you about which hour you stop caring what's around .

Or maybe I'll just drink and smoke until I pass out and forget about her completely

Re: Tips to heal a broken heart?

Isn't the solution normally to get your rocks off with a couple of other hot chicas? Then in a few days you'll be like Puerta Who?

This is true, and will most likely be what ends up happening.

But right at this moment, I'm still a bit heartbroken. It is healing quickly, though, thanks to Nathii's kind words and a really cute Cuban girl I've set up a gym date with tomorrow afternoon

Lots of ice-cream, tears and repeat viewings of Gilmore Girls on the couch with a comforter.

Re: Tips to heal a broken heart?

I've had that feeling before, it's like when someone throws tacks under your car and punctures your tyres, you're on good form and good spirits and then someone halts that with just a few choice words.

If by ice cream you mean beer, tears you mean laughs, and Gilmoure Girls you mean the game, then yes

I know right? Feels terrible, you feel ransacked. But eventually, one gets over it.

Also, is that how the British spell "tires"? Very interesting. I've always been fascinated by British and American differences in spelling.

Color and colour, recognize and recognise, etc. etc.
