Dating someone still in college
You might be depressed and require treatment from a professional. He or she just wants things to return to normal, but that's not possible if you're still heartbroken.
Explain to your ex that you need some time to yourself, and avoid seeing him or her as well as you can.
That's not the same as being heartbroken—it just means that you have some nice memories.
Is your ex still on your mind, weeks or months after everyone told you that you should have gotten over it already?It's possible you don't meet them for a while for this reason, because even your new significant other knows they will pepper you with questions like you're on a second interview.
