Deal with the past
Before you can move onto your next relationship, you've got to deal with the past, and all its messy relationships.
That means no more drunken texting and calling your ex; accept what happened and come to terms with it.
Remember, it takes time, so don't be hard on yourself if you're still not over it a few months later!
