Check out these tips from Patti Stanger, courtesy of Glo

Breaking up is hard to do for a reason. If you can handle another cliche, it isn’t calling heartache because it isn’t painful. Just sayin’…When I break up with someone, I mope for 12 straight hours, watch The Holiday or Love, Actually (don’t ask me why, but watching Christmas-themed movies just makes coping easier) and then I go out, flirt, go home, mope some more and repeat. Everyone’s got their own thing. Some people demolish seven straight pints of Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby (you know who you are) and some people go out and have sex with strangers. Who am I to judge? But the ultimate Judge Judy, Patti Stanger, tells Glo.com that she knows how to get over a split; she should know, after breaking up with her fiance, Andy Friedman. Here are ten of her tried-and-true methods for moving on and getting over the guy who broke your heart.#1 Dating Detox

“The best thing you can do is to take a dating break. It can be anywhere from 30 to 90 days, depending on how long you were with the guy. I did meditation, and my teacher did hypnosis to clear the energy from past relationships and any residue I was harboring.”

#2 Endorphin High

“The endorphins kick in when you work out. Once I started exercising, I started feeling skinnier—and skinnier means sexier. It’s not about losing weight; it’s about feeling good.”

#3 Mother Knows Best

After Stanger’s recent breakup, her mother gave her one piece of advice that she swears by: “Whether you’re 18 or 80, there’s always another man around the corner.”

#4 A Big Don’t

“The first thing you shouldn’t do post-breakup is to call your ex-boyfriend and ask, ‘Why did you break up with me?’ Because obviously he didn’t want you, and that’s just going to make you feel bad. Even if he said, ‘You don’t listen,’ or whatever the excuse, it’s never going to make you feel good. Never ever. So don’t ask.”

#5 The Good Book

Getting to I Do is like the bible. I don’t think that you can get a better book that talks about the alchemy of love between men and women. Why do men think the way they do, and why are women getting it wrong?”

#6 Help Yourself

“If you want a self-help book, then get Abraham Hicks‘s book Ask and It Is Given. It’s the only self-help book that you will ever need.”

#7  Comfort Food

“I live on the Miracle Noodle. They have lots of fiber, and there are no carbs in it. I add a little truffle oil, a little cottage cheese and a little salt, and I’m good to go. It’s kind of my mac ‘n’ cheese, without being fattening. I’m also a chocaholic. You have to splurge.”

#8 Dress For Success

“Buy a LBD mini, with three-quarter-length sleeves, a V-neck. It’ll go a long way. Any Donna Karan, any Diane von Furstenberg. The wrap dress is a staple for generations to come.”

#9 Jean Therapy

“Find a pair of great skinny jeans. I love Genetic Denim—they have the best stretch. You can throw them in the wash and they return back to where they started.”

#10 Stand Tall

“You can never go wrong with a great high-heeled shoe. Jimmy Choo’s actually feel comfortable but also look sexy, because they’ve got little squishies in them so you can walk and stand forever.”

#11 Skin Indulgence

“The best tool is a Clarisonic. I buy them for Christmas, or a thank you gift. I was on Days of Our Lives and I actually bought the stars all Clarisonics. It saves you a ton of money on facials.”
