If the guy did not like you for some reason, let it go. You need to act mature at such a time and accept that there must be some sane reason behind it. Carry yourself with utmost dignity, and even if it affects you, at least do not let it show on your face or in your behaviour.

#2. It is okay to feel bad and cry out loud

Keeping your tears pent up will only make you more miserable. Let it all flow out. It is okay to feel hurt and to cry your guts out when you feel like. Moreover, you will feel more relieved and lighter once you do so!

#3. Update your online profile

#5. Think about the positive side
