  1. I got through it, took 3-4 months. The reason was – I got late for the 6th point, I should have done it at the first place to get over my ex.

  2. If you’ve got enough courage, I would also suggest you to block him/her everywhere for sometime such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat till things are back to place and you progress with getting over your ex.
