1. Don’t Call Your Ex…

…His hot new girlfriend is likely to answer his cell, and you’ll feel more lonely and thirsty. Awkward!

2.  Don’t call your parents…

…unless you want to hear the five million and one reasons why you’re still single, starting with you refusing to eat your vegetables at age three.

3. Don’t send yourself flowers at work…

…your coworkers will know those flowers are from you. How? They’ve been reading your emails.

4. Don’t go out to dinner alone…

…you may think it’s a powerful demonstration of single liberation, but it really just shines a bigger spotlight on your loneliness. Sit this one out at home. There’s power in French vanilla ice cream and any movie with Brad Pit or Bradley Cooper.

5. Don’t listen to love songs

…unless you want to set your heartbreak to music. The Taylor Swift look hasn’t worked for her, and it won’t work for you either.
