…is to get on top of someone new. True story.
A good friend of mine brought up an apparent flaw in my rules between Rule #5, and Rule #2.
Rule #2 says not to have one night stands. Which I still stand by.
Rule #5 says the best way to get over someone is to get on top of someone new. Which I also stand by. However, “new” may be misleading…. I should have said, someone different. This is a good place where the future rule #6 comes in: Always stay friends with your exes.
An ex is a beautiful way to get over someone. As long as there’s no lingering feelings there, hooking up with an ex is almost always a brilliant idea. Comfortable, safe, you get yours…. And then you feel better. Perfect! If that is to awkward for you, or all your exes are evil, then this is where you can start breaking that glass. As in Chris Rock’s bit:
“A platonic friend to a woman is like “a dick in a glass case. In case of emergency break open glass”.”
Now if you don’t have any platonic friends to flip, this is where you just start meeting new guys. Now don’t sleep with them on the first day, c’mon ladies, stay classy. Talk to them for awhile, text chats, facebook chats, make em meet your friends….. then, you know, do your thing and apply Rule #5.
