Last Update : October 31, 2019 by Noah

Bad break-ups can be traumatizing at first. It is completely normal to have overwhelming feelings and to think that your life is done. But there’s light at the end of the tunnel, believe us.

Dating professionals have calculated that it takes on average 6 weeks to get over a bad break-up.

It’s only a question of time, together with some of these tips that dating experts recommend to their clients.

#Try to find a new routine

Sometimes all you need to do to find a new routine is to join your local swimming-pool or a painting class. Joining activities is a great thing to do! You can try to meet more often with your friends or to start doing that hobby you’ve always wanted but you never found the time.

This is about creating new opportunities, for you to get out, for you to not obsess and for you to meet new people.

So, my friend, that’s the final step you need to reach: hope. If you need to go through these 7 different stages, that’s completely ok.
