FHM Nation, let's all share a moment of silence for our fallen brothers Paulo Avelino, Phil Younghusband, and Luis Manzano, for they have officially found themselves on the losing end of their respective relationships with three of the most sought after women in the land:
First it was Jennlyn Mercado reportedly splitting up with Luis. And then there's Angel Locsin revealing via Twitter that she and Phil have called it quits. And then, after several months of speculation, LJ Reyes has confirmed that her relationship with Paulo is no more. Even Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have pulled the plug on their romance.
Yo, Mr. Cupid, is this your idea of a sick joke or something? It sure sucks to be any of these guys at the moment. Seriously, how do you even get over a relationship with an Angel Locsin?
Good thing Popoy's here. No, not John Lloyd; Popoy. Our hero from One More Chance. He's taught us a few things about handling heartbreaks and winning exes back, which we will gladly share with you. If you are by any chance going through a break-up like these guys, here's what you should do...
Soak it up, son. Soak it up everywhere. Sob over every little detail that reminds you of your ex. You are not only mourning the loss of a loved one, you're also bidding farewell to the good times. If you're as emotional as Popoy, you can even tear up in the most unconventional places, and that's okay.
The lingering stage sure feels like hell. You're obviously not in the right condition see her again, but you do so anyway the first chance y0u get. Whether you're classmates, colleagues, or in the same social circle, an accidental/intentional meet-up is almost always bound to happen. Popoy, God bless him, had to learn this the hard way. Huwag kang atat makipagbalikan. For your own peace of mind, take all the assurance and the affirmation you can get given your situation - a message reply or a prior commitment - and take it a day at a time.
Regardless of whether you're the dumper or the dumpee, you will totally hate the idea of your ex hooking up with another guy. Popoy made the fatal mistake of losing his cool in the presence of Basha's man date, but if you stay calm, make a decent front, and address the situation in a more composed manner, the idea of you being okay with it may actually get in her head.
No more buckets of beer and tears. You've allowed yourself to be miserable, and it's only fair that you allow yourself to feel okay too. Granted, you're still heartbroken, and you probably still wish things would go back to the way it was, but this is the part where you turn the other cheek whenever someone or something reminds you of your ex. If you cannot get rid of the demons, do your darnest to ignore them. It'll rid itself of its own at some point.
