In my humble opinion, there are two ways to handle any break up.
1. ”The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.”
This is typically the way I handle any sort of break up. I replace the person I miss with someone inferior who won’t last but keeps my mind off whatever is going on. This is also known as the “rebound”. Typically, this is fairly easy for me to accomplish because honestly, who wouldn’t want to get with this? I’m awesome. Seriously, I”ve never had a problem getting a rebound – and this break up is no exception. I’ve got guys lining up to try to take me out to dinners, or get me in bed – but unfortunately, I have absolutely no interest in them. It’s really a two fold problem – the first is that sexually I have no interest in them. Why bother? The second is that it would be so unfair to any guy I dated. My heart is so full of love for Zack that there really isn’t room for anyone else. I was talking to April about the whole situation on Sunday night and I told her, “I think it’s entirely possible that I’ll never get over Zack – and that’s okay.” April, bless her heart, was the one person who looked at me, dead in the face, and said that she knew exactly what I was saying – and that it was okay. (Unlike everyone else who would just say, “Give it time.” Time isn’t going to heal this people – sorry to say.)
2. Find something to distract you.
The other school of thought is that in any break up, you have to have something to distract you from the pain of the break up and the things that you did together. Since I can’t exactly get under anyone, it’s kind of like fate that yesterday I got a text message from someone I used to play WoW with.
Nasti Masti: Frosty?
Nasti Masti: Heey!
Nasti Masti: Watchu been up to?
Stephanie: Not much, going through a pretty bad break up. How about you?
Nasti Masti: Oiii, sorry to hear that. I’m heading over to a friends, got on WoW today and was thinkin of our old gang.
Stephanie: I know! I miss everyone! I haven’t popped open WoW in forever.
Nasti Masti: You still paying for it?
Stephanie: Nah – cut that a year ago. I might reup though.
Nasti Masti: When I get home, I’ll send you the scroll of resurrection.
So, later that night, in my inbox, popped up the Scroll of Resurrection.
Apparently, with the new scrolls I get the following things for free:
• A FREE upgrade to Cataclysm
• A single character boosted to level 80
• An optional FREE Character Move to your friend’s realm/faction (for the boosted character only).
• Seven Days of FREE Game Time.
All of my characters (of which there are 7) are currently sitting at level 80 except my pathetic level 6 warrior. (I guess I’ll have a warrior at level 80 now too.) To grind them all out to level 80 should take me about 2 weeks per character with my work schedule, and then after that, I’ll have to run randoms like crazy to gear myself, and find myself a raiding guild on Uldaman. All of this basically means between this blog, WoW and Pampered Chef – I’ll basically have no time to even think about guys or Zack or anything of the sort.
So now I just have to remove the authenticator from my account and get my new one on. Yippie!
