Sex & the Single Woman: Getting Over Him for Good

In light of the new year, I trying to purge my closet of all of its male skeletons. This doesn’t mean forgetting guys past, but rather completely getting over them.

I have decided that I want to start fresh–who doesn’t want that? But what I want to know is how do you truly get over an old boyfriend? I consider myself fortunate to be on friendly terms with pretty much every guy I have dated. But is this a bad idea? By staying friends with them am I leaving the door open for romance to creep back in?

I don’t like feeling like I am cutting people out of my life, but maybe that’s what I need to do. Should I quit my exes cold turkey, or slowly ween myself off of them? Is there a right way to break up with someone for good?
