Breaking up is hard to do, but moving on is even harder. After you break up with someone, you have to get over them before you can love again. When you get over someone, you stop having feelings for them.

Sometimes, you never get to have the person you loved. This can make getting over them even harder. When you love someone who doesn’t love you back, eventually you have to try to get over them and find someone else to love.

After months and years of trying to get Ella to love him, it seems that Mason has finally gotten over her. He has a new girlfriend. But Ella isn’t so sure that Mason has really gotten over her. Find out why.

分手是困难的,然而忘记更加困难。与某人分手后,在你可以再爱之前,你必须要忘记此人。当你忘记一个人时,意味着你不再爱此人。
有时,你会永远得不到所爱之人。这使得忘记更加困难。当你爱上一个不爱你的人时,你最终要尝试忘记此人,然后寻找其他人相爱。
长久以来,梅森曾尝试让艾拉爱上自己,但一番努力过后,他最后似乎忘记了她。他有了一位新女友。但是艾拉并不太确信梅森真的忘记了自己。请找出原因。

Marni:  OK, guys, for this next project, I think we’re gonna bring in Mason. I mean, I know he’s just the janitor, but he’s had a lot of good ideas lately.

Dale:  Yeah, you know, that’s true. Ever since he’s been dating that new girl, guy’s been on fire.

Marni:  Dale, you are the one who’s on fire. I mean, look at you. You look amazing.

Dale:  Thanks. You know, ever since I faced the music, I really got over my weight problem.

Ella:  Back to the topic at hand. Marni, we cannot have Mason on this project. No, absolutely not.

Marni:  Why not?

Ella:  Because he’s in love with me!

Marni:  Uh, actually, I think he’s over you.

Ella:  What? What do you mean he’s gotten over me? When did he get over me? How did he get over me?

Dale:  Um, the hottie?

Ella:  There are so many hot people in the world. One person can’t do that. I mean, we don’t even know if she really exists.

Marni:  Ella, I’m sure it’s very hard for you to imagine men getting over you because you’re so beautiful, and you’re so charming. But I think in this case it was very hard for him, but I think he finally just let go.

Dale:  And you know, the best way to get over somebody is to date somebody else.

Ella:  Those are both great theories, guys. But this is probably just another ploy. You know, to pretend to get over me to get with me.

Marni:  She does have a point there.

Dale:  You know, Mason has done some crazy things to get with Ella…

Marni:  OK. Mason is off the project, but I really do think he’s over you.

Ella:  Really?

Dale:  Yeah.

Marni says that she wants Mason to work on a project with Dale and Ella. But Ella doesn’t think this is a good idea because Mason is in love with her.

Dale and Marni point out that Mason doesn’t seem to be in love with Ella anymore. It appears he has gotten over her. He has a new girlfriend.

But Ella isn’t convinced. She thinks Mason is just trying to make her jealous. What do you think?

Have you ever had to get over someone? How did you do it?

getting over someone would be too much painful to someone if he or she loved someone so much. this script brought me bad memories  when i wasnt able to forget my first love 10 years ago. i was kinda of paranoid patient and, such a stupid women. haha. u know, i can funnily talk to my friends what i have done in order to get over him but, at that moment, i lost weight about 10 kg and, the worst thing that i have done  was that i mentally bothered him like “misery or stalker. haha what a crazy girl. even though that drove me crazy and was heartbroken, sometime, i miss that time, which i could fall in love with someone unconditionally.

Mason´s definitely trying to make Ella jelous. If you really want to get over someone you should stay away from that person as much as possible. You can be friends later perhaps but you want sometime away to change your mental attitude towards the relationship.


I´ve had to get over someone before. Actually a couple of times. And my theory is step away for a while. Take some time off because time is a great healer. You might go through the motions at first but then comes a time when your pain isn´t as strong as it used to be. Then finally give yourself a chance to meet someone new.

Actually i fall in love with someone years ago nd that was my real problem i couldn’t get over her easily. You know my love reached to unbelievable matter from my actions particularly by eye contacts. Once i tried to persuade myself to get over the story cause She couldn’t feel the same. She just wants to keep me by her side To increase Lovers fans but i was the favorite. I focused on my future nd studies to full my time without thinking about her and achieve all my desires. My life without her became worse ever. I have been satisfying without her. She had tried to contact nd to become new friends but i refused Because I found someone that waited me for along time. It’s My Future. about Mason i think he made a deal wz  Marni to make ella more jealous about him and consider his exists in the world. they successed to make ella more confused. he’s still lovein’ella and probably she loves him more than him :).

As far as i am concerned, LOVE is not a feeling , it is a decision. So if we have feeling for someone that doesn’t love us back. We just need to get over that person. I know it’s not easy. But you can do it. We can exercise love and it’s just our decision. There must be a lot of people around us waiting for our love.

Time is the best cure, We can’t predict and answer anything but time can do that. Frankly speaking I can’t force myself  to get over someone. The more I pushed myself, the bitter I think about him. I tell myself  Just let it go, how? Forgive but not to forget, because I believe everything happens for reason. I just need to keep myself busy with everything, I occupie my time with all the stuff I should done, it will make my mind stay from thinking of that person. SOmetimes, there are part of our life which should not be forgotten and when the time passed by it’ll be a good memory which makes us smile in the future. Love is a blessing. It’ll make us always happy with it, so when the time its over, we still have to take it as good memory, how happy we were with it. 


Mason is dating someone? It’s hard to believe, let’s stay tune tothe next shop opera !Cool

I have tried to get over one girl many time however this one never worked out! It’s tremendously painfull, hard and tearing one’s heart entirely. I’d rather you guys were in love and loved forever and ever. Unfortunately, as the shit happends and people whom you love may act in the way you never expected them to, love usually ends up being not enough to remain happy with your significant other.


Snoopy,


”... And for a while we kept in touch, not dating, but more like the friends we were before we commited…”


Yeah, mate! If only you knew how I get you! But as for me, it’s damned hard to keep the distance, to resist the temptation (cos, crap, she’s so hot and attractive!) and not to stick in this foolish relationships again realizing that noting is gonna turn out well of that! So, how have you managed to get through that? .. if you have at all )) BTW, if you don’t mind me asking I wonder about the “crime” being commited? =)
