By Petra Halbur

Jef Holm and Emily Maynard may have called off their engagement in October 2012, but Holm says that he has nothing but love for his former fiancee. “We haven’t talked in the past few months. Last time we talked, things were in good spirits,” Holm told of Maynard, whom he met on the Bachelorette last spring. He explained that Maynard, who has a 7 year old daughter, is a homebody, while he is looking for a more outgoing partner. “I hope the best for her. She’s an amazing girl. She’s just not the person I’m gonna spend the rest of my life with. I think she’ll make somebody happy,” he said.

How do you truly move on after a broken engagement?

Cupid’s Advice:

Breaking off an engagement can be devastating. Your short term and long term plans have both been drastically changed and, perhaps, you’re unsure of how to face your new and uncertain future. Cupid has some advice to help you move on:

1. It’s okay to be single: Finding yourself without a partner again is probably the hardest part of breaking off an engagement. While the transition may be difficult, know that you have friends and family who love you. Being single does not mean that you are not alone.

2. New goals: Your plans for married life have been put on the back burner (for now) so write yourself a list of new things that you want to accomplish. Remember, there are advantages to being single.

3. Love is still out there: It might be hard to believe right now, but “the One” is still out there. The end of your engagement does not mark the end of your love life.
