Okay, so it’s been a month since our breakup, which he initiated by saying that he wasn’t feeling ‘OK’ with himself so he could, therefore, not be with anyone else, that he was hurting me with his hot and cold attitude (true) and that I deserved so much better. It broke my heart, but after that conversation, I went to his place (I had offered like the weekend to think about it, but he was gonna go away to the beach with friends to ‘clear his head’ and it just was too much for me) that night to break it off. He didn’t let me come into his place, sent his grandma to tell me he wasn’t there, told her I saw him and that I’d wait but only a little while ’cause it was late. He came out, same argument but now backed up by my “I do deserve better”, “I do deserve someone who will fight for me” and his “Let’s be friends”, “I don’t want you to disappear from my life” and “I will always care for you”. I naively believed all this and we were supposed to meet that weekend so he could give me some of my stuff, I got a message late telling me he was sick in bed and couldn’t, so I asked what should we do about it (mistake, I know :/) and then another week went by and didn’t hear from him, so I sent him a subtle text asking for my stuff back that I didn’t wanna fight and there was no point to him ignoring me but… he just kept on ignoring me. BTW, I did stop texting except for yesterday and the day before to pick up my stuff. So, he didn’t reply (he lives far so I didn’t wanna show up and him not there :/) but I went with a gf who sorely hates him and wanted this over and done with for me to move on. Texted him I was a block away, he was so surprised (Um, he could’ve checked his phone when he was online?) and was like “So, you’re getting your stuff and then just leaving?” and I said “Of course, what else do you expect?” and he replied “I don’t know, just asking”. So, he came out and I handed him his stuff, said I didn’t have to bother and asked what I brought. Stupidly, I started to tell him each item but then stopped and just handed him the bag, he handed me my stuff and he was about to talk to me when my friend said “We gotta go, got plans, remember?” and I snapped out of it and just waved and said “Well, take care, bye” and he just looked at me all shocked and ‘sentimental’ (something was going on there, no idea what kind of feelings, confusion?) and I turned around before he closed the door.

When I found the research on dopamine above I remember thinking that it was extremely interesting. However, I also thought that when dopamine is being fired off in my brain when I have a crush on someone the inner workings are completely different.

The Real Reasons Men Don’t Text Back: The Ultimate “Do’s and Don’ts” Guide To Texting The No Contact Rule: Everything You Need To Know Exactly How To Get Your Ex Boyfriend Back Here’s How To Stay Strong After A Breakup The 10 Biggest Signs Your Ex Is Over You (And Exactly How To Fix It!) The Exact Reasons Why The No Contact Rule Works Every Time

Peter and Paulette have agreed that they need still more time before they make a final split-up or re-unite decision.  Paulette is wary of false hope.  She wants to be certain that she can trust that Peter’s changes will hold, and hers as well.  

So if your relationship with her stayed the same after 6 months or after a year (in other words if it failed to evolve and grow) then it would have violated her desire for progression. It would have made her realize that you are not the guy who’s going to give her a long-term partnership and finally a family. She would then have seen you as a poor suitor, dumped you and gone off to find a guy who shows more signs of commitment.

There is so much wisdom in the this article and comments, thank you! I broke up with my ex last summer and nothing in my life has hit me so bad. She ended it suddenly after nine years. The bereavements I have experienced in my life do not even compare to the pain I have gone through although I know the end of a relationship can also be a bereavement. I am mid-40s and am worried it will take me years to get over her. I don’t want to protect my heart for the rest of my life. I really don’t know whether I can be friends with her. I feel there is too much feeling of my part, but I cannot cut loose from her entirely. I have boxed up all her photos, cards and letters etc but i can’t bear to part with them because she wrote me such lovely letters. Some days I feel good, other days rotten so I’ve come to the conclusion that there are just good days and bad days. I take each day as it comes. I know some of my feelings for her and the desire to reach out to her is because it is Christmas and New Year but I know despite the incredible pain she has caused me I know I would still take her back tomorrow if she wanted to get back together.

Give yourself compliments! Congratulate yourself for a job well done! Treat yourself to a nice movie! Go out on a date with yourself! Tell yourself you’re absolutely wonderful and amazing! Thank yourself for being the best version of you!

I understand that you want to be alone and I respect that. Everyone deserves some alone time with themselves and I’m not going to deny you that opportunity. When you are alone, you can think things through but don’t overdo it.

If you decide that you’re ready to get your Ex back, you should also be exploring other options. If you feel that it’s too early to go on a date with someone else, then it’s too early to fully re-engage with your Ex.

One important thing – make a call to your ex instead of leaving a message. Call once or twice a day and if you don’t get a response then don’t give up. Make sure you keep your voice smooth and gentle when asking for a coffee/lunch.

Watch for signs that your relationship won’t work. While you might have strong feelings for this person, sometimes two people are just not compatible. If your relationship is toxic, you need to move on rather than trying to win back your ex. Some signs that your relationship is troubled beyond repair include:

For real, change yourself for the better; let him see that and he’ll want to be part of it. But you won’t let him back into your world overnight – even if you really, really want to get him back, don’t. You both need some time to appreciate each other for other things then sex. And when the sex does come, it better be mind-blowing. Then again, don’t be clingy and don’t call him every day after that – love all over again – instead, take your time. Let him think about you and worry a bit.

Look, you were fantastic while the two of you were together. You’re an incredible person to begin with. And you just side tracked a little. But, there’s no better feeling than running into an ex when you are at the top of your game.

What It Is: Ask your friends what you should do to get over an ex-boyfriend, and you’re likely to hear, “You’ve got to go out and meet a new guy!” (If you’re a male seeking advice, it’s something more like, “Let’s go drinking and get you some ACTION!”) But simplistic as it sounds, getting back on the market ASAP has helped dozens of single people recover from a bad breakup. A new date won’t ever replace your ex—and you wouldn’t want to, after all, since that relationship didn’t work! But diving into the dating pool can make you feel attractive to the opposite sex again, give you new things to think about, and — ideally — eventually land you a new partner.

Enter your “me” phase. Since you are single now, focus on yourself. Don’t mope around the house, waiting for your ex to call. Don’t try to win him back. Don’t try to contact him. Instead, make this time about you. Do things that make you happy. In the process of making yourself happy, you will make your ex jealous by doing things other than being sad you broke up. Plus, whether you are moping or going on your next adventure, word will get back to your ex. There’s no better way to make him jealous than by not dwelling on him.[3]

If the problem had to do more with him, then you can think about how you can be together again without this issue — maybe he’ll be willing to change. But if he’s not willing to change and you know this will be an issue long term, then you should consider whether or not it’s worth it to get him back.
