Cupid’s Advice:

There’s no doubt about the fact that break-ups and divorces are tough. In fact, they aren’t always amicable. That being said, it’s important to let go of your grudge before too long. Cupid’s got some relationship advice:

1. Move forward from the past: Do not dwell on the past problems you and your ex-partner used to have, as that can lead lead to fighting. You have closed the door on them, and it is time to get over it and move on! No matter how much they might have hurt you, forgive and forget. It will only make you feel better in the end.

2. Do not ask about their personal relationships: Being concerned with who your ex is now “seeing” or “talking to” can lead to jealousy and other problems. Do not wonder who they are with, and keep it civil between the both of you. Worry about your next hot date instead of theirs!
