6. Forget about contacting his friends and family.
Throughout a relationship, we spend a lot of time with our partner’s friends and family, who can eventually become close to us. But once you break up, it’s a good idea to avoid meeting them or reaching out to them. Not only will you be tempted to ask about him, but they can remind you of your ex and can give you an update on his life, like if he’s already dating again or trapped in a depression.
