Don’t go out of your way to avoid places or people that remind you of your ex. If you had a favorite restaurant that you frequented together, make it a point to still eat there. Make reservations to go with friends in order to create new memories. This will keep you from limiting yourself and letting your sadness dictate your actions.

List your qualities that you’re most proud of.[8]This will help you to focus on the positive rather than the negative. You’ll also notice which of your strengths you value, rather than what someone else does or doesn’t like about you. Once your viewpoint is no longer clouded by negativity you’ll be able to uncover your true self.

And you don’t need a man in your life to learn how to do this. Instead, practice “framing your feelings” with everyone you meet and even on your own. Start right now by asking yourself what you feel. Then say it out loud. Say, “I feel shaky,” or “I feel sad,” or “I feel happy just looking at that flower over there.” Practice this everywhere you go, and it will become natural to you in days. Then when you talk to the man you love, use this new way of expressing your feelings. You’ll notice a miraculous change in the way he connects to you and opens his heart.

I have to admit I have been doing all this ever since the last time u email me, not only you but my closest friends told me the same thing and I still didn’t listen until yesterday I had a conversation with two people I trust the most and remember what he said and did and decided that that was it. Sadly I still see him at work but I will listen and follow everyone’s advice. Finally!! ????????

I will tell you something someone else told me, some people are not meant to be forgotten, you can’t always get over somebody because you share too much memories. You just need to remind yourself of why it didn’t work, try to get back to your older hobbies and keeping yourself busy, if you do remember him/her then just remember that it’s a memory, a page on your book and you have the rest of the book to finish instead of just going back to older chapters 😉

It’s been a little over three months since my ex and I broke up. I’ve completed no contact and given my ex space, a task someone difficult because we work together. I 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 and will barely reply to text messages. Typically she’ll reply to the initial message, but getting a second reply doesn’t happen much. 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?

…category B here contains the exact opposite behaviors of Category A. In Category A, those behaviors are try hard (too hard). But here in B, these are the behaviors of a guy who hasn’t given enough, so the girl doesn’t consider this guy as having long-term potential either.

I feel stuck in my relationship. He started to control me but I didn’t see it at first. It was slow. He now cheating on me. And I just found out. Now my family can not help me becuse of the problem being too much. So I feel stuck.

I’ve experienced this and sometimes you just need more time. There are things you can do to make it easier such as spending more time with friends and family, cutting contact with the person, etc. Ultimately, there is no right timeline for getting over someone that you’ve loved. Be kind to yourself and take the time that you need. I suggest focusing on yourself and realizing that no other person can fill the holes in your life. Find happiness in yourself and then you can seek to share a life with someone else.

It’s easier said than done, but by far the easiest way to get over an ex is to start thinking about someone else that’s new in your life. Think about other men and set your desire on them, and you’ll be shocked at how quickly your mind turns to the new guy (and not obsessing about your ex).

Because something about your behavior is making her feel as if you are not really committed to her. She feels that, although she’s attracted to you, you won’t give her what she wants and needs from a relationship (i.e. support her, and not keep f***ing other girls). This is completely different from a situation where you’re trying to get a girl back when she has moved on.

I just preached like an angry coach but when it comes to keeping ANYONE in your life that broke your heart, was dishonest and disrespected you, I clearly get fired up. I care about you all and If I can help one person avoid the mistakes I’ve made, then writing this was worth it.

But the more breakups I’ve gone through, the better I’ve gotten about making sure when the person walks out the door, so does my anxious desire to hold on them. Here are the 5 foolproof steps I’ve found for how to get over someone you love:

While you do not want to change who you are in order to get your ex back (because eventually they would leave again, since the real you has to return at some point), it is always helpful to be the best you can be. Your ex was attracted to you and you can try to regain that attraction.

What rubbish! In this article it says your ex-boyfriend needs space to realise he made a mistake and then he will contact you and he’ll be feeling lonely and blah, blah, blah. It’s giving girls the impression that they need to wait around if guys break up with them and giving them false hope that a guy will contact them. Depending on how long you were seeing the guy. Girls please don’t wait around for your ex to call you back in the hope that he feels lonely like this article suggests. Go out, have fun, meet new people. If the guy calls you back then great. Maybe you can work out the issues, but don’t go putting all your hopes up that he will.

If I had it my way we wouldn’t have broken up in the first place and would have instead tried to work through the issues but up until now every decision has been made for me which has been incredibly hard.

It sounds New Age-y, but moving around your furniture literally gives you a fresh perspective, which kind of gives you the kick you need to move forward. At the very least, spring for new sheetsit’ll help get him off your mind now that he’s off your bed.

Stop talking: The best of choice is to stop talking for a moment. This is the best of advice one can give as a love guru. Because always keeping on talking can be stressful and result in some useless talks that can destroy an entire relationship of many years. So just calm yourself and think for a moment that what went wrong in many years of relationship. Is it your work, talks, or heavy schedule? And then try to compromise on it. It’s in the best interest of you.

I called after a week of no contact & we pretty much were on the verge of breaking up but he confined it. It’s that he owed me money so I left a message and plus he told an ex I was doing drugs and doingbsexual acts for them. So I was pist off after she sent the message about what he told her. So now what do i do i know i should habe never contacted him but I was angry

One thing I know that he loves his daughter so much. Whatever he does for her only. He felt guilty about his divorce because his daughter is not living with her parents in the same house. And more thing I know his ex-wife had another man for years, she left him because of this man.

If you are afraid you are going to end up alone I want you to take a massive action and go out and date more people when you are ready. Don’t let your breakup with your ex affect you to the point where you actually believe this non sense of “No one loves me.”

I had a rough on and off relationship with this guy and it just ended really badly… again. This time, I’m just tired of the pain and drama and really want to move on for good. We blocked each other everywhere but I still have his favourite shirt, and I really don’t want to throw it out because I think it’ll be the wrong thing to do. I’m considering mailing it to him but it ended so badly and I don’t want to start more trouble. Is it worth it? Should I bother? Thanks

“After going through several years of ups and downs with a guy I met in high school, we ended things in our mid-20s. At first, I was devastated because we had so many memories from different phases of our lives, and it took me almost a year to shake the sad feelings. What helped me the most was remembering that even though I was sad, I still had the same great family, friends, and job I had before the relationship and the breakup. It was also pretty satisfying to remove the guy as a friend on Facebook!” —Rose W.

However if you dumped her but you’ve realized you made a huge mistake, and now you want her back, see my article on that topic in the “blog” section of this website, because all steps on this page show how to get your ex back if it’s the girl who ended it.

If you didn’t break up, you would never meet that next guy that will come along. Yes – he will come along – but only if you think positively. Open up yourself to new opportunities by looking at things from the right angle. Your heart is broken because you let it be broken. You can’t get over your ex – not because of him, but because of yourself – you do not let yourself get over him. Allow yourself to move on. It’s easier than you think.

The second time was my next boyfriend. I was 16 and we had been dating a whole year. He dumped me to “spend more time with his friends” which the next day I found out really meant he wanted to date a cute freshman that had been flirting with him.

According to Tebb, there could be several factors preventing you from moving on from your ex. And once you become aware of what may be stopping you, then you may be able to finally take the steps you need to in order to bounce back from your emotional limbo.

When you focus on the things you really enjoy doing, it automatically improves your mood and revitalizes your vibe. One great thing to do is to put pictures of yourself doing all the things you love to do up on Facebook – because it’s super attractive to guys to see that you’re having fun and enjoying yourself.

Even if you don’t bring up your past relationship directly, you can remind him of the good times you shared together in subtle ways. If he complimented a particular outfit, wear it again. You could also share a light-hearted memory with him. If you have a chance to meet him, do it in a familiar place where you used to enjoy good times together.
