"As I've said before, there's really no way around it. You just have to go through it."
Perhaps alluding to how quickly she got with Miley following her break up from Brody, the blonde star continued: "I know that dating before I'm ready would've made things so much worse cause I would've just been trying to replace someone else and ended up disappointed," she explained. "I think it's sooooo key to take as much time as you can to get comfortable completely on your own so that when you do date someone new you're not dragging baggage into that relationship and also you aren't compromising on what you want out of loneliness/panic."
But most importantly, Kaitlynn stressed that it was important not to lose your cool on social media and say vindictive things about your ex.
"RESIST posting emotional stuff (memes, quotes, pics, etc) to social media. Even delete social media for a while if you can't resist," she advised. "You'll never regret NOT posting something to IG but there are definitely things to regret when you post too much lol. We all do it, but just call your friends/write in a journal and keep it to yourself. It's transparent, and you'll be sooo happy you didn't do it later."
