Getting revenge doesn't help in anyway. It may give temporary satisfaction but it really just brings more pain to the situation. I think the best thing to do is let go of bitterness, even though it will take time, and move on without your ex. Build a better life and become independent and happy without them.

Be happy. Forget your ex even existed. Always look forward, not back, and make the most of every opportunity you see.

Revenge is never the answer. You should try to move on from this person and live your life to the fullest.

You don't get revenge. You show your ex that you're happy without them because you are. You're much better than what they say you are and if you two broke up, it's because you both need to find yourselves before you find one another.

To get over them and move on. They can be mad, but they will not effect my life. The best revenge I can do, is to let them see that I don't need them.

The best way to take revenge is to just forget them and move on in your life. To stop thinking about exes actually helps a lot.

There is no best way for revenge as revenge always leads to something bad or worst. Just find your happiness and let him feel curious as to why you are happy.

I wouldn't recommend getting revenge. Because of this actual fact called Karma. When you generate cause you get reaction. I say the best revenge is to let them see you happy. Showing them that you don't need them to be happy and enjoy life

Be happy. I can't give the best advice here as I'm having trouble letting go of someone, but it sure sounds good, right?

the best way to get revenge on an ex is simple, show them your not bothered anymore, show them you can do well on your own and be successful, show them your new independence, show them your happy!

By being happy with out that person. That's the best way. Why do something back to them. They would hate to see you being a lot more happier with out them.

Revenge is something that hurts the person trying to do it more than the person it is done to. If you really want to stick it to an ex, move forward and live a positive life void of any bad memories of that person.

It's best to not want revenge or feel any anger. No matter what, you should always try to let go of anger, sadness and depression cause by failed relationship. You can talk it out with a friend or an adult you trust and release the anger by yelling outside.

don't try to contact your ex ever ignore him/her even if he or she come in front of you ...

Live a happier, more fulfilled life than them - without them!
March 6th, 2016 1:10pm
You should keep your head high, make yourself look really good to show them what they are missing out on!

Be happy, go out there and live your life. There is no better revenge than for you to show that you're doing extremely well without your ex.

I understand your frustration, and need of revenge, but you shouldn't; just be respectful and please don't take your heartbreak out on your ex. Revenge isn't the way, but I understand your trouble and need to get back at somebody...We all get it sometimes.

Showing them that you are happy and that you are living life to the full is the best revenge possible.

The best way to get revenge on an ex is making him realize what he lost and feel sorry about it by being happy and successful in life, not for him but for yourself. :)

Just move on - he'll see you've moved on and that your happy without him, that is the best revenge

The answer is don't. Even if your ex did something wrongful to you, don't seek revenge. Don't sink to their level. You're better than what they are.

I found the best way to get revenge on your ex is to become the person you wanted to be in the relationship. Nothing stings more than realizing someone you loved is doing better than they were when you were with them. So hit the gym, eat more vegetables, go join zany clubs. The world is now your oyster, and the faster you get closer to who you want to be, the faster you don't have to worry about doing anything to your ex at all. The best way to win in this situation is to move on. The revenge would be looking back and realizing you did everything you should have, and embracing the fact that you are moving on. Your ex will realize they aren't part of your life anymore, and not is the best revenge.

Revenge is never the best course of action. It might seem good at the time but in the long run both of you will be unhappy and worse off for it.

There is nothing called revenge. The more you waste your energy to take revenge more you will be on negative side and thing about her constantly. The best way is stop thinking about revenge and about her completely.. It will give you peace and energy to invest into some productive things Cheers!!.

Revenge is never the answer. It may seem like getting even with that person is the only way to feel better, but in most cases it's usually the opposite. It may seem strange, but the only real option is to forgive them. It may be hard to do, but in the end you'll be a better abd wiser person because of it. Not to mention you will feel much better.
