Here’s how to pick up the pieces and move on with your life.

Remind yourself that it wasn’t your fault

It’s easy to fall in the self-blame trap after being led on. This has nothing to do with you, it’s all on him. From the get-go he had no intentions of committing to you so he saw it best that he strings you along.

Take time before looking for someone else

Being led on can knock your confidence, it’s only natural that you start doubting yourself. Learning how to trust again can be a bit of a challenge because you’re scared that the same thing will happen again.

Ignore the ‘get over it’ comments

It’s not easy to tell people that you’re struggling to get over a man you never actually dated. Even though there wasn’t any label to your ‘relationship’ you’re allowed to take as much time as you want to heal.

Don’t stalk him on social media

Unfortunately, most men who’re into leading women on are usually already in a relationship and are used you to fooling around. Going through his social media will just add salt to the wound. You might see pictures of him and his significant other and that’ll not help you in anyway.

Keep it to yourself

If you’ve got supportive friends they’ll understand and won’t judge you for this, however if you know there’s a chance you’ll be judged rather keep it to yourself. It’s really up to you if you want to tell them the real reason or just go on and lie about it.
