Hi Krissy,

You are still hoping he has feelings for you even though you know that he doesn’t feel that way anymore because you are finding it hard to let go of what you thought the relationship could be.

You have most likely already fantasized about what a life with him would be like and your mind has made it absolutely amazing.

That way of thinking has made you feel euphoric about this guy in the past.

That feeling of euphoria is often caused by dopamine that is a chemical that is released in the brain that causes pleasure.

It is hard to let this type of chemical reaction go.

It can actually be somewhat addicting.

Every time that you think about this guy, some part of you may feel that sense of pleasure based on what you think a life with this guy would be like and you just want to keep experiencing it.

You can actually help it when it comes to your urge to check his social media.

One of the most effective ways to do this is to start filling your time up with lots of activities.

There is a strong likelihood that you normally get the urge to check his social media when you are idle.

Being idle too often is dangerous.

It is often what will make you feel the urge to check his social media because you don’t have anything else occupying your time or mind at that particular point in time.

Hence, it is better to remain as preoccupied with activities as you can.

This will give you something else to focus on, thereby reducing the chances that you will have an urge to check his social media.
