This isn't really about how to mend your broken ego/heart but practical tips on how to let go of someone. What has worked for you? What do you advice others to do or not do when the objective is getting over someone? For example: If your internet avatar is a picture of you and your ex as a couple, it's probably best to change it. Stop finding excuses to talk to your ex or to someone who has clearly shown that s/he's not into you. If you can't stop from texting or calling the person each time you see your phone, delete his/her contact details. Hmm, people don't memorise numbers anymore these days, right?
