I listened to Portishead when I broke up. NOT A GOOD CHOICE. The 2nd Portishead is way too dark to listen to under those conditions.
Send her your self amputated ear
Kick her dog
yesterday i listened to some 'gospeed you black emperor!' ...which was good.
Went to the BRMC show last night...checked out some girls with a bud of mine, but wasn't ready to start approaching. I can't pull tail as quick as the forgetting sarah marshall dude...he had some serious game..
Yeah, I really think that Portishead, the Smiths, Blonde Redhead's "Misery is a Butterfly" and Jeff Buckley contributed to my depression following the end of my last relationship. Bad idea to listen to them, in retrospect, but I'll be damned if that isn't good music.
I've never been broken up with and have never felt any regret after a break up, so I say move on and find another fuck until you find the one that fucks you the "right" way.
DON'T try to be friends with her right away. You'll either start fucking again and regress into limbo or you'll feel like shit ten times over when she starts dating another guy. Take a break and don't be friends until you're 100% cool with it. I just made this mistake, so trust me. Be selfish and tell her you can't talk to her right now. Even if you are 100% wanting to be friends at some point, it's not gonna happen now. I put myself through torture because we had a Radiohead trip planned. While the trip and concert were both amazing, I put myself through months of anxiety so that day wouldn't be ruined.
Going out with other women might be the fastest way to get over it. Or at least start out with just hitting on other women.
And when you think about your "failed" relationship, only take the good things and learning experiences out of it. Remember that it's only a failure if you didn't learn anything from it. Just take your experiences with her and use them for the next woman.
Good luck. And High Fidelity is definitely a good one to watch after a breakup.
Just start dating other women. Fastest way to recovery. I dont know if thats an option for you or not. Youd have to be somewhat good looking.
Although sometimes dating other people makes you realize how fucked up most people are in the world and makes you think, ok maybe the ex isn't so bad, he may be a lying cheating man whore but at least he isn't a freak/perv/loser/living in the basement of his parents house star trek junkie. oh wait, i mean she.
non sunt in coeli, quia fvccant vvivys of heli
I HATE YOU DAD!
ok that might be a little weirder then screaming out your ex's name, but hey, whatever gets you through the day.
Travel. Visit friends all over the place. Just go out there and discover that this is not the end of the world.
For your health
There probably isnt much you can do. Time will cure it. Every day you wake up you will feel a tad bit better than the day before.

Here's their version of a breakup song. Maybe you've seen it on the Headbangers Ball. Maybe it'll help get the hurt and anger out of your system?
