There a few key steps you can follow when going through a breakup in order to possibly avoid experiencing more heartache during the breakup. They have helped me in the past and I hope they help someone else. Please feel free to add on more.

1. No More Honey Pot For Him

When you are in a committed relationship for an extended period of time, you become accustomed to having sex with that same person. So much so, that the idea of having sex with someone else isn’t enticing. I have been there. I broke up with my ex fiance and continued to have sex with him. Trust me, it did not make the break-up easier. Although, I was comfortable with him sexually, he knew my body, my likes and dislikes, I had to put an end to it.

2. Give Yourself Time To Be Away From Him

When you first break up with your man, your immediate reaction is to want to be with him. This is natural, because you once were in a relationship with him and he was a big part of your life. You are accustomed to being in his company. However, you have to fight the desire to be in his company. I am a firm believer that while going through a break up, you should spend less time with your ex. Continuing to spend time with him will only make the break up itself more difficult. Now is the time to ween yourself from him in order to not indulge in him more.
