Dear Amy: I had a hard breakup. The re­la­tion­ship lasted al­most a year and a half. It was ex­cru­ci­at­ing get­ting over this per­son, even though I knew she was NOT the right per­son for me.

I walked away from the re­la­tion­ship af­ter a big blowup where she cor­rected me about danc­ing in pub­lic. She also said other things to me on the phone that were ba­si­cally put-downs.

Af­ter the breakup, she ap­par­ently found the right per­son im­me­di­ately af­ter we broke up, and this hurt me.

I re­cently met a won­der­ful girl who is the op­po­site of her and she is so good to me, but I’m still in a lot of pain. This has been su­per hard for me to let go and to move on com­pletely with my life. JC

Dear JC: There is no timetable for get­ting over a heart­break, and even when you know the breakup was the right thing for you, it is still a huge loss.

Try not to let your pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship bleed over into your cur­rent re­la­tion­ship. You and your new girl­friend will build up shared ex­pe­ri­ences and mem­o­ries.
