9 tricks to get over your crush
It always sucks when your crush doesn’t like you back, but you shouldn’t waste anytime dwelling on that fact. The most important thing is to distract your mind and make yourself so busy that you literally don’t have time to think about him. Here’s how to move on without looking back.
Spend more time with your friends and family. Closing yourself off only makes it worse. Get out there and laugh with the ones who know you best.
Get back into an old hobby. No, we don’t mean stalking him on Facebook. Step away from social media for a sec and do activities that put a smile on your face.
Take your frustrations out through exercising. Pick yourself up and hit the gym or run around the block. A daily dose of endorphin-raising activities will kick your brokenhearted blues fast.
Look for someone new to crush on who is nicer and cuter. He’s out there somewhere. Even if you don’t find him right away, keeping your eyes open helps you lose focus of the old flame.
Focus on your schoolwork. Crushes only last so long. That gleaming sense of accomplishment from boosting your GPA outlasts any heartache.
Clear out the mess under your bed and in your closet. A clean start should start with a clean room. Any cutesy momentos that remind you of him? Toss ‘em fast and relish in an uncluttered mind.
Start reading a new book. Preferably one that doesn’t draw parallels between the dreamy hero (ahem, Twilight) and your former crush. Pick one that puts your mind as far away from him as possible.
Crank up the tunes and dance. Because life’s too short to be a wallflower at your own party – even if it’s just a personal dance party in your room.
