a lack of respect on either side. If you or your ex call each other names, belittle each other’s accomplishments, or say disparaging things about one another to your family or friends, then there is no respect in that relationship. These are all features of an emotionally abusive relationship.[21] Find someone who shows you the respect you deserve, and commit to treating him or her with respect as well.

Once four weeks of No Contact is complete you can now contact her at this point. In the majority of cases, she will contact but if she doesn’t then it is safe to call her now. However, make sure you have waited for minimum four weeks. Sometimes you have to wait longer than this depending on how needy and desperate you behave during your breakup.

Men and women want freedom, space and time to enjoy with their old friends. Women hate it when her man puts unnecessary restrictions. These restrictions put by men because of FEAR – the fear of losing her girl to someone better. Your girlfriend needs space and time to enjoy with her own friends and if you allow her space then it also makes your girlfriend to miss you.

hello my name is shane. I recently broke up with my ex about three months ago. She was the only girl that i knew and after i got broke up with her she was not talking to me at all so i let her cool down for a least two weeks and she and me started talking again.i tried to tell her i dont feel lkie talking to her she kept talking to me and i dont know why but when i got a new phone she asked for my phone number and i gave it to her without asking why but we started talking everyday.i still have feelings for her but ii dont know if she does for me a week goes by and she said are you dating anyone and i said no i was confused because she just asked that out of the blew . I REALLY need advice should i get back with her or stay single for a little more .im only 16 years old anyway and i really need help at this time.

If you checked one or more of the above, I have some bad news for you. None — I repeat, none — of the above ploys will make your ex-girlfriend come back to you — no matter what the other so-called relationship “gurus,” books and courses tell you. 

My ex and I broke up. I successfully did no contact for one month immediately after the break up and sent a follow-up text. In the initial first text I asked him in the message if he’d like to catch up for coffee, he said he it was too soon as he was struggling to find normality. I said I understood and we had a really good catch up chat via text. We have been texting almost everyday, good chats about friends, work, movies etc. I then asked him about a week or two later if he’d like to catch up for a drink he said he’s not ready to just hang out and it might be a while and he was sorry, but wants to stay in touch. He isn’t much of a texter even in our two year relationship. So I was a bit confused when he said no but I acted cool about it and said I understood and I’m happy to keep chatting (texting). We continued texting for about two weeks about random things and I got a fine in the mail I approached him about it cause I didn’t believe it was me driving (the fine was from a few months ago) and he said in a long message he remembered that day because I come over cooked for him and we had coffee in the park, he also joked in the message about a lunch we had made that’s still in his fridge and looks a bit dangerous lol. We sent a few more texts about our pet fishes and what not, seemed to be good. He said the suburb I was livin in now suited me 🙂 and then I said you should check it out sometime and he said yeah that would be nice :). So then a few days after that I said what is he up to this weekend and would he like to come check out my place/pool (he seemed to respond better to that then the coffee idea hence why I asked). But then he took two days to reply and said sorry he had a busy week and probably not this weekend and that he needs a pool at this place. Honestly at this point I felt confused so I replied saying ok when were you thinking to catch up as I will be away most of January? And he said he’s not in a huge rush, it’d be nice to see me but he feels he needs to find his own feet first and maybe closer to Xmas/New Years but he doesn’t know and not too rush it. I said it does suck but I understand and hope I catch you before I go :). That was our last text about 3-4 days ago and I’m not sure what to do now since I’ve asked to catch up a few times. I’m confused, I feel he’s definitely shown some positive signs, especially sending me some money for the fine even though he didn’t think it was him. My friends said I should just let him text me and not text him so I haven’t and it’s been a few days now. He was never much of a texter anyway but I’m not too sure what to do from here. Thanks 🙂

Nevertheless, if category B fits your situation, then you have a really great chance of getting your ex back so long as you play your cards right from here. Move onto the next step and I will help you and show you how to get your girl back!

What’s up people, my ex of 11 years, 2 kids, engaged for 3 years and only in Portugal 4 months ago viewing wedding venues broke it off with me 2 weeks before Xmas this year. It’s now 6 weeks on and I still have the belief that I can win her back. I want her back, I fucking need her back!!! She’s the one no matter what anybody says. I need to know how to doh. I’ve meet for the coffee and it went fine until we started speaking about us and I had to leave because I didn’t want to meet up an dicuss us I just wanted to see her. So she’s given me all the talk that I need to let her go and we are done etc…

Similarly if you don’t control your anger and only fix the mistakes that happened in the previous relationship then you only end up having leaky vessel which will break sooner or later. You have to guarantee that if you replace old vessel with new one then it would not happen again.

Why is this the easiest? Well it’s not as hard as other circumstances, like for instance getting a girl back from another guy. You only broke up due to distance, meaning that the attraction she feels for you is still present. In fact it might even have increased, since women get off on desiring what they can’t have (you). Even if it seems impossible, it can be done.

My ex boyfriend noticed the changes I had made immediately. As we were going through the process of building rapport, I made sure to keep highlighting those changes I had made. Telling your ex that things will be different will not be enough. Actions speak louder than words, and you have to show her how things are already different. Seeing that will make a bigger impact than telling her.

Focus on work- It is good to distract your mind for a while and what better way to do that than with work. Careful though, you don’t want to be one of those career first women and lose sight of your goal. Remember, focusing on work in this particular case should be used to take your mind of your ex boyfriend.
