So if you are a Category C guy, here is how to get your ex-girlfriend back: you need to move to where she lives to solve the whole distance problem, and then do a few things right from there, which I’ll show you now…
If you didn’t realize it by now, your instincts and your mind go into panic mode when you find out your ex is dating someone new. In most cases, you freak out and make all the mistakes mentioned above.
Now you know what you’ve lost, and you are about to get it back. Nobody can guarantee you that you’ll end up being together again – but, in at least 90% of the cases, it’s totally possible. You must believe in the possibility.
Detach yourself. Accept that for right now you’re going to stand on your own two feet without your partner, and resist the urge to rush into another relationship. In doing so, you may come to understand realities about your previous relationship, or your ex, that you hadn’t noticed before. View the relationship objectively, using your brain rather than your heart. Ask yourself if he was the kind of boyfriend that you would want for your best friend, sibling, or child.
As you read this article, you are creating your future reality. Even in your sleep, you create your reality because your subconscious mind never sleeps. Your subconscious is what’s responsible for actualizing in your physical reality all your stored beliefs that you acquired in your lifetime.
The beginning, or “honeymoon phase” of a relationship is an exciting, magical time. You two were doing fun things together. You were enjoying getting to know each other and exploring with each other. You were equal with each other.
It would do you better to walk away from this since he has already prioritized another female over you and has even expressed his disinterest, which might have been caused by the loss of spark or interest after so many years.
Do you feel like you lost a piece of yourself? The reason is because you actually may have lost something very real. In 2010, the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin found that a breakup often damages your sense of identity.
He also told himself after i left his city that if he did meet someone, he wouldnt let waiting for me get in the way of it as he didnt know how long to wait. He just never properly communicated this to me. Should I just move on or try the above?
He is still tied to you biologically. You have been together, right? So this shows that he and you are a biological match. The problem you are facing right now is psychological, which means that you can overcome it with the right strategy.
Allow me to explain. Your ex expects you to go running back to him, so doing the opposite will confuse him and make him insecure. Since you’re not begging for a second chance, the message you are sending your ex is loud and clear: You don’t need him, you’re strong, and you’re perfectly fine with the idea of finding someone new…. Don’t worry, this doesn’t have to how you actually feel, it’s just important your ex thinks this is the case. As time passes and you’re still not contacting him, he’s going to have a hard time resisting the urge to call you. This means you not only have him thinking about you, but the icing on the cake is that since you haven’t been chasing him or emotionally acting out, the negative memories your ex had of you and the relationship will be replaced with pleasant ones, which may even cause him to question the breakup.
Men are drawn to women who are happy with themselves. So be happy, live your life and let your radiant energy shine, causing him to second guess why you’re not together. Remember, you are a prize, so treat yourself like one. You should never have to convince him to be with you.
Okay, so you’re not ready to get back out there just yet. But that doesn’t mean you should quarantine your libido until further notice. Take a striptease aerobics class, finally download 50 Shades of Grey, or just flirt with the scruffy barista at the coffee shop. Just do something to keep your sexual energy burningeven if it is on low for now.
I am in the same situation. I’ve had several relationships before but my ex was the first guy I really deeply loved. We had incredible chemistry and I was his first girlfriend. He had qualities that no one else I knew had and we shared many interests that are not easy to find in others. He was incredibly loyal and loving and even though I adored him I often didn’t show him how much he meant to me. I pushed him to work harder and criticised him for his failings – to me it felt like I was helping him and that once he was on track we would be able to relax and build on our future. I just wanted him to succeed but it made me into a misery and a nag. The last year of our relationship was very stressful due to university exams and uncertainties. He is very lazy which was a constant source of disagreement between us and I felt that it made me into a very negative person as I was worried that he would not become more organised. It was far too much pressure and I bitterly regret projecting my worries for my own future onto him. Our family lives compounded the problems between us as we were both very unhappy at home. Previously we had been at university together but being separated and in bad environments took its toll. He coped better than I did and I pushed him away. These arguments spilled over into our relationship and I allowed sadness and fights at home to turn into an ever present atmosphere of negativity and stress. He broke up with me and didn’t want me to contact him again. Our relationship had been very close and open – there was a lot of love, kindness and affection as well as the bad elements. After a few messages that day asking to work things out and telling him how much I loved him (he didn’t reply) I never sent him another message nor heard from him. 4 months later and I have hardly met anyone else or been intimate with anyone – physically or emotionally. I know that even though I will move past it (admittedly, we were not the most compatible) I will really struggle to find someone else who I connect with in such a deep way and who I find so special and attractive. I have offers for dates but even though the guys are handsome or are friends, I just don’t find them interesting in that way. I know that I will find someone else in the future and will have another good even great relationship, but I know that I will always compare things to my ex and part of me will always feel that my heart and soul is with him. I don’t think that there is anything that can be done about this – some people are more loving than others and when you just happen to be lucky enough to click with someone in a special way it is very difficult to lose that bond. I think everyone has the ability to be a ‘penguin’ (my ex used to say that he was one and that he could never be with another girl in the same way) but not everyone happens to develop a relationship with someone who they can click with. We were both lucky and unlucky in that respect because we met someone amazing but now have to adjust to life without them because things weren’t able to work out. I wish that I could talk to my ex and at least have a friendship with him as we shared so much together and the loss is very painful. But if you offer an olive branch and it still isn’t enough you must accept that for the other person their feelings are either different or they are resigned to not wanting you in their life.
We can all be the master of our own domains. It’s just a matter of thinking differently and reframing certain things in ways that allow us to communicate emotionally in a much more efficient fashion. It’s comparable to learning a new language, say Spanish or French. But this language is emotional and you need a different kind of eyeglasses to speak this fluently.

thank you for this article – BF and I broke up yesterday but I am much stronger now; i think! same guy broke my heart 12 years ago. dont say it; my fault. I always loved him and will continue to do so but we are not meant for each other! so now the CLEANSING process ? Peace and Love All
First, married doesn’t mean faithful. This is in fact not ALL you wanted. You wanted faithfulness which you are attemping to equate to marriage. Second, it is certainly possible that he does love this other woman more, which as already stated, does happen sometimes and frankly- sucks. But it’s just a fact of life. And there’s no explanation for it, there is “no reason” why attraction/ love develops more for one than another. Yes sure, there are compatibilities that come into play which can create strong bonds, thus strengthening love- but all other things equal between the two of you, it’s simply the laws of attraction that take over (scent, appearances, etc). So finally, your likely suffering from that all powerful Feeling of rejection- which we all want an explanation for! She must be smarter, prettier, better than me! Maybe. Or maybe it’s just chemistry taking over which none of us has any control over. Maybe she’s no better than you at all. Maybe you are better than she in many ways. Nonetheless you are not chosen. I think it’s most important to stop judging yourself against an unfair benchmark. Love is not apples to apples as there’s more than just the “visible” what does she have that I don’t at play. So be fair to yourself and then ask yourself if it’s really just the actual sense of rejection that we all hate to feel, that has you stunted. Could it be that nasty ol’ “want what I can’t have syndrome”? Maybe… and if not, I’ll say a prayer to help you move on. 🙂 best wishes for a loving future!

FF I am not dating, or even thinking of dating while my ex has not stopped since I moved out 2 years ago. Literally, one girl after another. It hurts me to think of him introducing the newest woman to family as I know he has. I am being held back by lingering feelings for him, and yet I know as a pair it did not work, or that we just did not put the work into it that we needed to, and that even worse, I dreamt of ways I wished he could be that he would never be. I believe there are so many wonderful men out there, But my ex captured my heart and it is NOT going away.
Omg I’ve been doing everything the wrong way. I moved out of m bf’s after we got in big argument cause I got home from work late. When I was actually at my therapist office asking for advice how to communicate better with my ex. Long story short, he got mad cause I deleted text messages that day. Ever since moving out he has “trust issue” so it’s been up and down. This is the longest we’ve gone without communicating or hanging out. I feel like he feels he has me so secure. I also have the messages he got so mad that i deleted i tried to show them to him but he won’t see them, I think he knows he over reacted and doesn’t want to see he was wrong. Sometimes i feel like just sending him the messages.. should i?
Don’t be over-the-top in flooding your ex with dating requests, but put yourself out there and apologize often. Go out of your way to do something he will appreciate. And again, let him know you screwed up.
If you want to have a fresh start, then saying sorry for the things that you have done that contributed to the failed relationship is necessary. Admit your mistakes and your contributions to the break-up. You can’t actually put all the blame on him.
Once you get older, and have to financially and emotionally support another person, dealing with all the shit that life throws at you both, the bad as well as the good, sticking by each others’ sides without bailing for what might seem like greener pastures, that’s when you know its love.
After breakup you are most vulnerable to display insecurity and neediness to your boyfriend. Therefore, when your boyfriend around you it doesn’t matter how much harder you try you still send signals for neediness and insecurity.
Take down the photos hanging on your bulletin board and stick all the gifts they bought you for Valentine’s Day, your birthday, and those handful of days when they messed up royally and put them in the trash. Even if your favorite t-shirt that you still wear all the time was theirs, or you don’t think you’re ready to dump the handful of love letters you have saved in your drawer, giving away the old only makes room for the new.
Any ideas about how to initiate this kind of conversation with him, start talking in a more positive light? Over text or in person? I just want to open the lines to him without him feeling that giving me any positive encouragement = he wants me again right now.
