Is it taking you along time to get over your ex? Well you're not alone. In fact it's hard for many people to get over their ex. Breaking up with someone isn't easy...but there are some things you can do.

First let's identify some of the problems that may happen because of a breakup.

1. You may compare your last partner to the one you're currently with.

If your expectation of your partners high because of the standard set by your ex, you may get disappointed. Once you start to compare, problems may occur.

2. You don't let your feelings go.

If you split apart because of "hard-to-get over" reasons (i.e. your ex cheated on you), it may take a while for you to give someone your heart.

So what should you do if you've been hurt?

Well you can:

1. Keep high expectations, but don't base them on standards set by your last partner.

2. Take your time with your current partner. It may take a while for you to start trusting again. But if you really want someone to steal your heart, you need to put it out there. But don't rush anything. Take things slow. And remember to give your partner a chance. They deserve an opportunity to prove to you that they're different.

3. Talk to other people. Find out if they've ever been in a similar situation. You may receive words of encouragment. Find a support group or create one of your own.

To say "just get over your ex" isn't nearly enough. If you've been in a long-term relationship or marriage, you have to understand that your current partner and your ex are two different people.
Give him/her the opportunity to treat you better.
