Cupid’s Advice:

A break-up hurts the heart a lot, and everyone needs to be comforted so they get the strength to feel better. Here is some relationship advice to help you:

1. Focus on yourself: A little “you” time may be the best medicine. Making yourself happy without the help of a significant other will make you grow stronger. Make sure you are mentally and emotionally okay before you head back into that dating pool.

2. Comfort food: Take the word “comfort” literally. Grab your sweats, get cozy on the couch, and eat your favorite food. Indulge in pizza, ice cream, anything that takes you back to when you were a kid, or gives you a warm feeling in your stomach.
