How to deal with a summer breakup
My boyfriend broke up with me right before I had to leave for camp. I still haven’t let go—I want to work on our relationship. The thing is, he never talked to me much when we were together. Even during school, we never saw each other very often. How can I be the girl of his dreams?
I’m sorry you’re feeling down. But instead of holding onto the threads of this worn-down romance, get out a pretend pair of scissors and—snip!—set yourself free. Really, why try to be the girl of his dreams when you can have dreams of your own? Look toward the future instead of the past, and have fun talking to new friends at summer camp rather than fretting about a guy who wasn’t even all that communicative in the first place. Stay busy, laugh a lot, and don’t let memories of this ex hold you back from having a great summer—starting now.
