I never subscribed to the theory that wallowing in a depression with depressing or angry music ever worked.
Hang out with friends, family, go out, play some games, take some time to generally do the things you want to do, watch/listen to some good comedy - this kind of thing works for me.
6 months can seem like a very long time.
But yes, I realise it's far from the end of the world.
Skyrim is definitely on the menu. That's basically like a drug right?
hah, After 6 months you were probably right on the verge of exiting the honeymoon phase, and entering the dark times. You may have dodged a bullet.
This is the most blunt, honest advice I can give you.
UNLESS you lived with the person, just brush it off. Seriously, it's that simple. Getting used to another person day-to-day in a way akin to marriage is a different story, because that actually affects your way of living, and there are certain "comforts" you'll develop that will feel weird when they're gone. However, if you were just seeing someone -- and you're relatively young -- it's no big deal. I've been few my share of breakups, and most of the time, if it happened and the girl and I didn't get back together after a few weeks, then it had to happen. Just surround yourself with supporting friends (girls rather than boys, but that's just how I usually do it) and have fun. You shouldn't stress things like commitment, love, and all that stuff until you're older.
Try to do everything you can to take your mind off of her. I usually run or play something horribly violent. I also eat a lot of ice cream, and look for someone better. The only problem I have is going back to things that remind me of her. This is usually the deal with music I was listening to at or around the time of the break-up, and as a bad solution, I tend to stop listening to it all together. I haven't listened to Tokyo Police Club in the longest time.
@samface6: My advice. Keep active. Go the gym work out and build your confidence again.
The hardest thing I found after my last big breakup was that I felt rather worthless and seeing the results of working out made me feel better. Also women I knew started to notice and flirt with me.
