We’re aware that relationships are subjective. One person’s “hottie” and another person’s “babe.” But when you’re in love, you definitely see your partner in a certain light, and it can be hard to imagine being with anyone else. After all, they’re hot. They’re funny. They make you laugh. They also make you feel excited and alive. They’re everything you want in a partner, and more. So it’s natural that when a relationship ends, you feel a little lost and don’t know what to do with yourself.

But it’s not just about being hot. Being with someone who makes you feel amazing is what matters. So if you’re ever wondering how to handle a break-up with a hottie, here’s what you need to know.

Get Over The Crush

Although it’s normal to have feelings of sadness and loneliness after a relationship ends, try not to let yourself get too absorbed in those feelings. It could be helpful to remind yourself that there are plenty of other hot people out there, and that you deserve to be happy and have fun. Even if your ex is incredibly attractive, it doesn’t mean that you have to deprive yourself of happiness because of their good looks. You deserve to be with a person who makes you happy, and you’re lucky to have found that person.

Don’t Expect Too Much

Just because your ex is or was a hottie doesn’t mean that they’re going to magically turn into the perfect person you want them to be. In the same way that you deserve to be happy, you also deserve to have your expectations met. So even though your partner may make you feel like a goddess, remind yourself that they’re still a human being and they have their own insecurities and flaws. If you want to be with someone who’s perfect, then you should probably just stay single.

Look For Signs Of Healing

Even after you’ve gotten over the initial crush, it’s important not to let yourself rush into a fresh new relationship just because your ex is or was hot. Remember that they’re not a one-stop-shop for your happiness. Just because they make you feel good doesn’t mean that they’re going to keep making you feel that way. There will most likely be times when you feel hurt or insecure, and it’s your partner’s responsibility to make you feel safe and comforted. Look for any signs of your ex trying to make things right with you, such as apologizing for hurting you or demonstrating that they value your opinions and feelings. If you feel like they aren’t hearing you or your needs, then it may be time to remove them from the list of options for your next relationship.

Hopefully, this post gave you some good ideas on how to handle a break-up with a hottie. Whether you’re still hung up on the idea of being with someone so hot that they literally made your heart race or you’ve moved on and started to date other people, remember that it’s not impossible to find happiness. You just need to start looking. And if you ever discover that your ex isn’t the person you want to be with, then it’s time to move on and find someone who is.
