Jason:  You guys don’t look so excited to be alive today.

Mason:  Yeah.

Marni:  It’s true.

Jason:  Did I miss something? Is something…

Mason:  No. It’s the same old thing, man. Breakups.

Marni:  Uh!

Jason:  You too?

Marni:  Yes!

Mason:  Single life. I mean you…I know this is kinda weird, but you got over Amanda.

Jason:  I did.

Mason:  How’d that work?

Jason:  Well, I didn’t have Amanda ever so that helped. But, uh…

Marni:  Yeah. That’s different.

Mason:  Believe me…

Jason:  It was still hard.

Mason:  ...you have no idea how much that helps.

Jason:  Not having had her?

Mason:  That woman, she lingers.

Jason:  Yeah. I bet.

Marni:  Oh man.

Jason:  But I don’t know, like…Let’s see. It actually took a lot of work to get over her, or my desire for her, you know. Like I…I made out with some random people. Have you guys tried that at all?

Marni:  No.

Mason:  I got no prospects.

Jason:  I don’t really highly recommend it. I actually got a new dog.

Mason:  Really?

Jason:  Which ended up working out, although I do feel like it was a kind of reckless to get a new pet when I was so depressed.

Mason:  Excellent for picking up chicks though, the dogs.

Jason:  Yes.

Mason:  I’ve played that card.

Jason:  Totally. And I don’t know. Sometimes you can use a breakup for, like, a big lifestyle shift that you’ve been thinking about having for a while, you know, if you’ve ever been like, “Maybe I should travel or, like, shave my head or…”

Marni:  Yeah. Yeah.

Mason:  Hmm.

Marni:  Maybe.

Mason:  Hmm.

Jason:  None of those sound very good?

Marni:  Hmm.

Jason:  How long do you think it takes? Is it like….I’ve heard, like, one month for every year or, like, twice as long as the relationship, some people say.

Mason:  I know. Wanna see my pictures of Amanda?

Jason:  No. Oh yeah, dude.

Marni:  No.

Jason:  That’s the…You gotta get those off your phone.

Mason:  This is us at the beach.

Jason:  OK. Not only should you not be showing these to me, but you can’t…

Marni:  Yeah. You gotta get rid of those.

Jason:  You can’t have pictures of your girlfriend around.

Marni:  You need to burn them.

Jason:  No, no.

Marni:  They’re on your phone. Maybe you need to burn your phone. I immediately destroyed all photos, all evidence.

Jason:  We better take this for the rest of the day.

Marni:  Yeah.

Mason and Marni seem sad, so Jason asks what’s wrong. They’re both feeling blue because of they each recently got out of a relationship.

Since Jason once had a crush on Amanda, Mason asks him how he got over her. Jason says it helped that he was never actually with her (although he came close). But he tried making out with a stranger and getting a new pet. He suggests that Mason and Marni might use this opportunity to make a big change in their lives.

But Marni and Mason are too depressed to reinvent themselves. Mason still carries photos of Amanda on his phone! It may be a while before he gets over her. Have you ever had to get over someone? How did you do it?

There are so many foctors for the period of getting over someone.How long was lasting the relationship,how much you were loving,were you falling in love or you were still falling in love,were you planning somethings in the future.All these things effect if you can get over easily.If you are dumped at the time when you were falling in love,it’s really very difficult to forget and start to the new life.At that time,it will not help to meet the people,to make somethings new,to work harder.The best is to try to be friend with him/her after breaking up.Like that you can accept the reality.You can see that he/she doesn’t care you as before.

I was really bummed after i had break up with my boyfriend. i am still can’t move on and can’t get over him. I think this is the hardest and most painful part of falling inlove. But i need to face the reality and face the fact that he doesn’t care anymore. I tried to divert my attention to many things just to forget him but still it doesn’t work. My mind said to forget him but my heart doesn’t listen and continues loving him. Time is the best healer. I know someday somehow i will find someone who is more deserving :((

I can’t get over it at all because I was very delicated in the relationship.I tried so hard to make him fall in love with me however he did’t feel the same way as I’d felt for him. It was always been one sided love. No matter how hard I tried it would never work. He drived me insane so many times when I was with him. I hate him. I dislike him. I know why he broke up with me.. It’s because I am fat and do not speak English fluently also taking dumb classes. He thinks he is too smart for me.. He’s so mean and heartless.

I bet that thre is no such term wich can define when aftermath will come

as It  was told above it depends on many factor and I can not  write something definitely

as everybody knows  The time is great healer  
confidently I can say an aftermath will come

well. everything is just difficult to get over it when we went through like long reckless tunnel. maybe we could take it for a long time. none of those sound good maybe when we breakup or something even in class.because during the class i was just pointe out manything drom teacher then i seemed to be depressed and stated cling to that class. finally it tllk me lot of work to get over it. but now it's normal.maybe i got a some immunity to protect from that. ^ but we could find out the wat to get over it easily or continually.^
