After being engaged for several months, the couple announced their split in August and embraced single life. In a recent celebrity interview, Viall finally opened up about being single. According to UsMagazine.com, Viall said, “It’s never fun, right? I don’t know. Being single kind of sucks. But what can you do?”

This celebrity break-up talk has us feeling bad for this Bachelor. What are some ways to embrace the single life after a split?

Cupid’s Pulse:

Break-ups are always tough and can be hard to handle. While there is no magic cure to the pain of heartbreak, here are a few ways to embrace single life:

1. Focus on you: There is no better time to spoil yourself and learn about who you are, than when you are single. When you become single, you are flooded with a large amount of free time. This can be overwhelming and disheartening if you don’t know how to fill that time. So, instead, spend this time trying new things and learning about yourself.

2. Be with your friends: Being in a relationship sometimes means that you have less time to be with your friends. When you are single though, you have endless time to be with your friends and catch up. They are the ones who will carry you through this break up and stand by your side no matter what. So, take this time to be with your squad and live it up.

3. Travel: What better way to move on from a break-up than to travel the world. Take some days off of work and live it up in a new town, new country, new scenery. Any place you go will be uplifting to your soul and will help you embrace single life even more.
