Distancing Yourself from Your Crush 1 Distance yourself from them. One of the most effective ways to help you get over your crush is by distancing yourself from them. Minimize any contact or the potential for contact so that you can get over them without having any lingering ties that could upset you or reinforce your feelings for them. Also consider erasing any text messages from them that you may have. Remember that even if you delete your contact, they may not delete you. If they contact you, you can either not respond or choose to send a brief, polite response. Consciously not mentioning them in conversations and actively shifting your thoughts when you do think about them will help you get over them more quickly. You can also step away from conversations about them. If your friends know that you have feelings for your crush, they may occasionally mention them. This will only remind you of them and may hinder your ability to get over them, so ask your friends to not bring them up or update you if possible.

Post Mortem: Why Do Women Have All The Advantages In Dating?
Rules for Casual Dating Relationship Status: Dating has taken all new types and forms in the last few years and describing what kind of dating you are into has become harder than ever.
