Loneliness after a breakup can leave you wondering "how do I deal with loneliness?" more often than you're ever likely to admit to in mixed company. Loneliness is a killer companion in the long hours of the night but there are things you can do that will help you not only cope with loneliness after a breakup but also help you get over your girlfriend much faster.

These are just some of the things you can do that will help you cope with being alone after a breakup. Doing these things will not only help you feel less lonely but also feel less alone.

1) Get a pet. There are plenty of animal shelters and rescues in your area that are filled to capacities with pets in need of good homes. You can help each other. Dogs are a really excellent idea in this instance as they force you to get out of the house to take them for walks and interact. Dogs are also quite loyal companions to have around. You don't have to find a pet with an extensive pedigree or even one that costs a fortune. There are plenty of mixed breed animals that have as much love to share as those with the finest pedigrees and price tags. Just make sure that if you are leasing a home or apartment that the pet you choose is allowed. 2) Get involved. There are many worthy causes in your community that you can get involved with. But getting involved can be a reward in itself that goes beyond the fact that you are doing something good to help others. When you get involved in a cause or work with others toward a common goal you'll also enjoy interaction with other human beings. Every waking thought won't be about how to get your ex back. Most importantly, it is a great way to spend your time with others without feeling like a fifth wheel or imposition. It's also a great way to extend you personal social circle and make new friends to help you combat the loneliness that often comes after a breakup. 3) Make up with your girlfriend. I know that seems more like an impossible mission rather than a worthy goal to have. However, if you are filling your spare time making plans to get your girlfriend back, the loneliness will not be nearly as intense.

You don't have to save your relationship or even get her back to stop feeling lonely after breaking up but it's certainly an idea worth considering.
