Cupid’s Advice:

Mourning is important after a breakup, but try to keep it to a minimum.  Life is short.  Don’t waste it being sad over someone who probably wasn’t worth it in the first place:

1. Instant gratification: If you are one of those rare people who can get over a breakup immediately, the more power to you.

2. Waiting too long is unhealthy: If a month has gone by and you still haven’t gotten over your ex, you may want to consider seeking professional help.

3. Give it a week: If you need to give yourself a week to get yourself together, go for it.  However, when your time is up, there are no extensions.
