Break ups suck, no matter whether you're the one being broken up with, or the one doing the breaking up. Its going to hurt no matter what happens, and thus, some coping skills are needed.
Over the years, surely you've found some [things that have helped you move on](http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://dating.about.com/od/breakupsrejection/tp/feelgoodafterbreakup.htm) and get over someone. I know that for me, the worst break ups have also been the times in my life where I've grown the most, and been the busiest - more out of necessity than anything.
How about you? How have you coped with a bad break up? A new feature still in its testing phase is being tried out on this site, which allows readers like yourself to share a story about how they overcame or did something that is dating related.
