Well yeah... I can't quite get over my ex-girlfriend... We dated on an off for a couple years (I'm young, 16) and now it looks like off for good, but i can't stop thinking about her and move on. Something always reminds me of when i spent time with her and i feel lonely and wish we could be together again. She knows I feel this way, but says she "just can't do it" because it hasn't worked out so many times. So what have you guys/gals done to get over your exes? I need some help!

Usually, it takes somebody to get over or forget somebody. But it'd be a little unfair to that somebody or to yourself too, since you're too vulnerable now and maybe the first girl who will be intimately close to you might actually make you fall for her. Give it time, and face. The more you try not to see her pictures or think about the good things that happened to you, the longer the time it will take for you to forget her. Wallow, if it hurts to listen to your songs or looking at her pictures or reading her emails, do it. You'll be surprised how you'll finally be ok with it in a few weeks. That what I did. I hurt a lot at first, it was like intentionally hurting myself, but it's the only way I can think of for a fast recovery.

you have to keep yourself occupied and plus you are young so you have time to date other girls and see what else is out there

That's a young age alright... anyway, when i had my first boyfriend at around 14 and broke up,like yours can't get over it at first. But then i learn that doing a lot of things that i enjoy can get off my mind 'bout him. Let's say, going out with friends, doing your hobby or just plainly cleaning your room or the house (laughs!)....

But she didn't... and i don't want to lie to myself about it... I don't think it'll work out again, she said she just can't do it, and she doesn't want to hang out with just me anymore.

Just keep going out and mixing, you'll mend faster than you think, you got into a relationship too young as most silly people nowadays do. They won't be told, think they know everything and MUST HAVE
