    Spend time alone. Go to a quiet place away from your partner and think about what you want from life. You've made the decision to stop loving him, so picture your life without him and accept that you might be alone for a while. Write out the steps you need to take to achieve the life you want without him.

  2. 2

    Talk to friends. Once you have made the decision to stop loving her, you need to communicate to the people who care about you why the relationship has to stop. Good friends will look out for you and keep you on the right track by reminding you that she's not the one.

  3. 3

    Keep yourself busy. Stop the loving memories by keeping your mind occupied with hobbies like reading and recreation. Reading lets your mind concentrate on something other than the love you feel. Physical recreation exercises your brain and decreases stress, both of which help you think more clearly.

  4. 4

    Make yourself available to other potential partners as a way to restore your self-worth. People often stay in unhealthy relationships because they think they deserve poor treatment. But nobody deserves to be treated in a hurtful way. Loving and caring guys are out there who can help you get over the person who treated you badly.

  5. 5

    Get out of your regular routine. This could involve leaving the community you live in to stay with family for a while. The first few days will be hard, but you will gradually heal. This method is like putting a patch on a wound, whereas keeping with your regular activities irritates the wound.
