Spend time with other people. You don’t need to sleep with them, but spending time with other men or women will let your ex know that you are on the market for a relationship again. If they are still interested, they may decide it is time to step in and stop you from looking elsewhere.
There are many ways you can approach this conversation, but one safe way is to say something like, “I’ve been wanting to talk to you about our relationship and see how you have been.” Express regret things didn’t work out between you and ask if you can talk about it now that you have some perspective.
I just broke up with my boyfriend five days ago… I found out not only had he been cheating on me but he had a whole other relationship going on with this other woman. I’ve never been so hurt ever. I felt like a complete fool.. Anyways I struggle with facebook stalking and wanting to still be friends
To be honest, I think it’s actually a good time to send him the email, as it creates a bigger impact (birthday, Christmas and the start of his holiday). If you want him back, you could send the email then and definitely include the birthday and Christmas wishes as well.
First you need to try to list all the things you hate about him, or try to push him away. This way he feel distant from you, and you will slowly see him less and also you will slowing have no feelings for him.
Hard to admit, but true: in every breakup you’ve experienced, you were the common denominator. Instead of blaming him exclusively for what happened, look within and determine how you contributed to the demise of your relationship. For instance, do you tend to question your exes about their whereabouts because you have a hard time trusting them? If so, those are your trust issues to address and fix, not his to magically resolve.
If you’ve been searching about breakups and getting your ex back online, you’d know that there is a thing called no contact rule. It’s simple and very effective. All you have to do is stop all the communication with your ex for a short period of time. This includes
2. Liking his social media posts or commenting on them with not-so-subtle trips down memory lane—”Oh, I see you posted a picture of the Statue of Liberty … that reminds me of that time we went to New York but ended up hardly seeing any of the sights outside of our hotel room. LOL.”
When you have an abundance mentality, you’re unafraid of losing him, and you have a positive mentality that things WILL work out for you in the future, that’s when you will be MOST LIKELY to get this man.
You will make things worse for yourself if you don’t get him 100% out of your life. That means: no checking him out on Facebook, no Googling his name and no ‘accidently’ being in the same places that you know you will be able to find him. It is hard to erase someone from your life like this, but it’s something that you just have to do.
If you are validation seeker to get good compliment from your boyfriend then make sure you never express this to him. Men see girls that are too needy as a ‘little sisters’ and no men in their right mind want to create relationship with ‘little sister’. Instead, they want to get into ‘big brother’ role to help them out.
Now in any of the relationship there are some boundaries that are meant not to be crossed. Like your boyfriend may not be looking for a girl who is very showy or unpredictable in nature. Similarly, you on the other hand may be looking for a guy who is stylish and passionate when it comes to talking flirting.
I have been a faithful fan of yours over 3years now and i must admit that your team has been a source of inspiration and help to me. Sabrina has been awesome. Thank you. My case is simple. I have always wanted to marry a white guy right from my childhood though I am a black lady. When I grew older after high school? I worked in a company where they have lots of whites. But I didn’t get to hook up with one because I had to go to college. I’m in my final year. I will be graduating next year and hope to get scholarship to study abroad. I am 23years old. if anyone can hook me up with some white friends I would be grateful. or simply just recommend me to someone. Thanks a lot.
I was with a guy for 5 years from being 16, I cheated on him at 16 but I was just young and stupid but we stayed together for the 5 years after this incident, we both went to uni which was the same one but he just didn’t seem to want me in his life once he started, he would never want to go out together or with his friends and it started to hurt, I found out he was talking to a someone he used to like in school online asking her to come round to his flat to make her “dinner” and this was painful after that our relationship deteriorated and we eventually broke up, but he would always blame me and hold onto when I cheated on him which by this time was 5 years prior and the majority of our relationship was after that, after breaking up we kept talking and whenever one of us was ready to try again the other wasn’t and it kept going in circles, then he said he wanted to and I was ready to try again, this was a year and a half after the break up, he said this and changed his mind and said it was due to me talking to other guys whilst we had been broken up, I then see a few days later he is in a relationship with another girl which he didn’t tell me I had to find out from my friends and this hurt, now it’s nearly 2 years after the break up and I’m still a mess about this and he doesn’t want to talk to me anymore and says it is unfair to his new girlfriend how I try to talk to him, I just can’t seem to move on and the whole time we have been broken up I haven’t and feel like I can’t, the worst part is losing your best friend, I want to be angry about it but I can’t, I just miss talking to him and hoping it would of been different, I don’t want to ruin his happiness now though but I just hate the thought that he’s fine with never talking again which makes me just feel worthless and insignificant to him now and how he obviously played me off against his new girlfriend before deciding who he wanted and after everything we had gone through to together for years, I want so bad to be over it as it’s been going on too long now but each day I’m still so upset by it and people say time heals but it’s not, 2 years of not even being together and I’m still no where near over it, how to let go of someone you still love when they don’t want you in their life at all
Today a day 5.. He still haven’t read my messages. The mistake is that I sent him a text with a link about the event I told on the day 1. I know I should have waited but I couldn’t help myself. I don’t want to start gnatting which I did before I started NC. I am not the same clingy and needy girl I used to be. I am not. His messages on a day 1 and 2 sounded so positive and suddenly no replies. Maybe I should give him time to reply. Maybe he really is busy. i should not be over analyzing. So does that mean I could still try but wait a week or longer to initate texting again? I wanna show him I am changed. But really hard having any conversation if he seems always being busy. I know I am not one of top priorities at the moment.
Accept that it might not work out. When attempting to get an ex-boyfriend back, you need to realize that it may work out, but it may not. Even if you successfully get your ex back, there’s no telling that your relationship will end up lasting. Prepare yourself for this beforehand to avoid being blindsided by heartbreak a second time.
worst advice is to keep in contact and be friends. all that does is set you up for the next let down. much better idea is the 30 day no contact rule. NO MATTER WHAT don’t text, call, do whatever on facebook. he’s OUT OF YOUR LIFE.
It’s been a little over three months since my ex and I broke up. I’ve completed no contact, given her space , never begged or been pushy did the right moves based on advice given on here and other places. She’s still will barely talk to me (we work together) and will barely reply to text messages. Back in September I purchased a Christmas gift for her and even though we broke up I still sent it to her on Friday. She replied thank you for the gift. You didn’t need to. Merry Christmas! Attached to the gift was a clean slate letter. She made no mention of it. I told her she was welcome for the gift. I asked her if she was going to be up for talking soon to clear the air. She never replied back. She isn’t seeing anyone, nor did we have a bad breakup. Since the breakup I have found out that she is mad at me about something I said but I don’t know what I said or who I said it to and she won’t tell me. We’ve had some positive interactions as of late at work, but she’s got a wall so high up now. Where do I go from here? Three months, no contact completed, clean slate letter given, space given, showed activity on social media sites as well and not much recoconcilation has occurred. What can I do? Or is it time to accept the fact that I’m not going to get her back?
Thanks for the advice. I forgot to mention last night after a stressful week I had some anxiety and said some insecure things to her while we were talking. Stuff along the line of “you were my best friend” and “second chance” were mentioned. I realized my mistake changed the subject almost immediately and continued to have a good conversation, but it was a moment of weakness nonetheless. Do I just continue on as normal?
You will instantly know that you are willing to start fresh if there are no longer negative feelings towards each other as well as when you can start talking about the break-up in an honest and civil manner.
That’s why you need these 4 weeks to calm down, put the pieces back together, and take a real look at what your relationship was. Getting perspective means you can see clearly whether you were happy, whether you were right for each other, or whether you even want to have the relationship back.
He was never the type to take blame for anything. So no matter how many times I told him I was just fed up with getting hurt he just didn’t seem to care about that. He just kept complaining about me leaving him for someone else.
So, this is it. Once you decide to embark on the plan I am about to give you there is no going back. Well, I suppose technically that isn’t true because in the end the choice is always yours but me saying “there is no going back” sound so much more dramatic which is what I am going for here.
Immediately after a break up, we tend to panic that we have lost someone important, a soul mate and significant other permanently. We, therefore, call or text them almost all the time. Calling someone just to check on them sounds slightly clingy and there is no one man on earth that can stand a clingy women. Take time to re-discover yourself, and live your own life. Do not find little reasons to communicate with them all the time. When tempted, call a girlfriend or anyone else who can discourage that behavior.
Hi everyone I’m so thankful to have found this site! I’m only 23 but my relationship of 3 years ended suddenly 2 weeks ago. My boyfriend and I started living together 6 months back and thought it was going really well. One day we were arguing over something silly that quickly escalated. He said he needed time alone to think and we didn’t talk for 3 days. Finally he said he was ready to talk and told me he was no longer happy or in love. I was blind sided and devastated. My entire life crumbled and I felt like I lost everything. A few days after I heard through my sister he was seen with a girl whom he had been playing online video games and met through coworkers. He has been living at her apartment ever since the breakup and I feel even more devastated to know he moved on so quickly. I feel like our entire relationship was a lie and he no longer cares for me. Even though he ended things before he started physically seeing her it hurts to think of it so soon after. I am having good moments when I see my strength and self love, but every time I think of him with her i feel nauseous. A part of me still wants to try and work things out with him, but I don’t think he feels the same. I have started the no contact rule and so far we have only talked in regards to logistics about the apartment. I see his social media posts with the new girl and he genuinely looks happy and is smiling and laughing which is gut wrenching. Should I let go of the hope of fixing things? I want to try couples therapy but I think it’s too late. Has he moved on or is this a rebound to take his mind off stuff? Thanks!
You had a hard time believing that everything was perfect, because your past experiences showed otherwise. You began to ‘investigate’ about his past or stalk his exes on social media. You began to check his whereabouts, his emails, his SMS messages, and his social media accounts.
Like any of the good opportunity has its bad and positive sides similarly any stage of break up is also the stage to learn from the experiences. Any of the relationship can be maintained and developed with time and the difficult occasions do come up with this opportunity of converting a relationship into a strong cordial relationship.

Correct bad habits. Now is the time to scrutinize your behaviors that led to the breakup and to try to self-improve. For example, if you feel that you and your ex broke up because you are too jealous or argumentative, try being more conscious of these behaviors and stopping them in their tracks.
