Okay, Serena asks Blair ''how can I fix it'' and Blair answers: "You don't"

I'm not a native English speaker but - at least to my ears- the above way of talking sounds perfectly okay.

I understood "You don't" as though she'd said:

You don't have to worry about fixing it. Just go on with your life and forget that once you met me.

By the way, Serena was probably being sarcastic with the "how can I fix it". The only way she could fix that would be by not doing that in the first place... not fooling around with the guy, so to speak...
