Don’t jump in with over the top expressions of love. Instead, reach out on the lighter side and share a fond memory you shared together. Or tell him you’re craving your favorite takeout food. Bring him back to the positive times you had and let him reminisce about the great person you are.
I just want to say that your advice is fabulous. This is exactly all the things i needed to hear at the right moment. Im going through a break up and although it is a grief process, i know, i really have been trying to use it as a time to reflect on myself and the situation. #4, 8,9, all greatly resonated with me.
Note that you may overcome such feelings eventually. Your reason for wanting him back is because you genuinely love him and care for him. You should be able to see yourself having a bright future with him and committing to love him and stay with him no matter what.
I promise you one thing, this isn’t going to be easy. There are going to be times where you will be tempted to contact your ex during your year long no contact. In fact, I have had a lot of women contact me and tell me that going through something as short as a 30 day no contact period is like going through withdrawal (and they are only doing it for 30 days, you have to do it for a year.)
Break ups cause grief, the process is different for everyone. I was married for 26 yrs to an emotional abuser with some violence but mostly mental abuse. The father of my two grown children and grandchildren who are my saviours. I think this marriage contributed to a feeling of low esteem which made me first reject close relationships as I was afraid of intimacy and thgt sex was the answer. I was single for 4 years just dating then I fell deeply in love with two men at differing time periods both controlling in different ways. One lasted 3 years and we are still friends after 17 yrs the last one was for 12 years. I am still broken hearted about my last love, he withheld love and let me down, typical not answering phone for days then I found out he had cheated and he just denied and denied it. Seemed to want me but would pull away if we got too close. However we were happy in each other’s company sex was fantastic and we enjoyed similar things. He never wanted to know my family and would prefer to spend vacation time with female friends and family without me. I left him 18 months ago and moved out of town new job and nearer my family. We continued to see each other long distance saw each other last 3 months ago. Mostly I initiated contact but he always responded. Says he’s missed me but does not want commitment,crazy huh when we had 12 years together (not living together tho). I still miss him still love him and don’t see that going away any time soon. I have male friends and could start dating but at 63 not sure what to do. He is 50. I just take a day at a time i go on holiday with friends. I have more happy days now than sad days but it has taken a long time to get to this point. I am very lonely at times but don’t want to get involved again at moment. I have acquired two beautiful kittens who have been life savers and I am less lonely now I have them. I have great friends and family but I don’t think I will be the same ever again. It is harder as you get older. If you are young be kind to yourself and take a chance on love again. Don’t waste years grieving accept the break up as soon as you can and move on you have your whole lives ahead of you .

This is such a powerful article, I agree to everything written out in this article. My fiance and I have been on & off for last 2 yrs. We went through an awful breakup 8 months ago and that’s when I learned about LOA. I kept my faith in the process and just like that 2 months after the breakup, I manifested him back. I did change my ways and turned things around 180 degrees in my favor. We even had a pre-engagement ceremony in July and things couldn’t be any more perfect EXCEPT the fights/issues came back. As of two weeks ago I sensed a lot of negative energy and as a result we got into a fight (really bad one) last weekend (Halloween), while we were in the middle of planning our wedding next year. Sure enough I’m in the same spot at 8 mos ago, he has shut me out as always, no contact, no response nothing. Our wedding outfits are being built and our friends and family are super excited about us. I am hurt obviously and there is that slight fear that what if he calls off teh wedding? But like the article said don’t let your fears pave your destiny!
Having an “emotional flu” helps you get it all out, fast, says Sandra Ann Miller, co-author of A Sassy Little Guide to Getting Over Him. So sob, scream, listen to “Someone Like You” on infinite repeat, whatever you want. Just give yourself a time limit so you don’t wallow forever.
While his current situation was inherently upsetting, Peter again gradually saw that he was reacting through the lens of his family-of-origin realities. Loving responses were not freely given there. Asking for his parents’ attention felt demeaning and emasculating.
When I didn’t hear a response from him the next few days, I decided to text him. I said I missed him and asked what was going on since he didn’t really give me an answer before. He responded that I was being mean to him and blaming him for everything and making fun of him. I had no idea where that had come from and when I asked him, he didn’t really respond. I was so devastated.
Count your blessings – Break-ups are always hard, especially if you have been together with him for a long time already. With that in mind, make it a point to overcome by counting all your blessings. While things did not go the way you expected between you and your ex, there are still many things to be thankful for. Remind yourself of all the positive things that you have right now and be thankful for each one.
He stayed at my house after sex saying he cant get home that late so we were sleeping together. Then stayed for the weekend, cooked for me and left his stuff at me saying he dont want to bring it again. Then started to repair my boiler, ordered stuff and collected from the shop. I was terrified what he wants. After my marriage I lived alone with 2 kids and I was happy: I could decide about my things alone and it was like a fresh air after 20 year long marriage even if it was hard sometimes to arrange everything alone eg. moving, kids illness, arranging school for kids, repairing things, normal household duties, paying bills and also I had a fulltime job. But I felt happy and independent. But I was almost like a male and I have not sex with anyone. But after 2 years I started feeling unwell physically and menthally. I thought it was because of lack of sex. But since I did not want to lose my independence, I decided on this friends with benefits type of thing. This is the story behind it.
The next step is to try to meet up with your ex boyfriend if you can. Verbalizing and more importantly, apologizing for what went wrong on your part is a great step in repairing the damage. He will realize that you value him and the relationship and appreciate your honesty and courage.
The very first thing you need to do to get your boyfriend back is resist the powerful urge to run after him, call him, text him, send messages to him via friends and family, or show up at his door. As I said above, this is going to feel really difficult, but you MUST do it if there is any hope that you will get your boyfriend back.
The good thing about telling him you are sorry is that it also serves as the key to gaining back his respect. Your decision to give him a sincere apology is also a big help in saving your relationship and making it as healthy and successful as possible this time.
All experiences of loss needs to be given time for mourning. Grieving is a part of the natural process towards healing. It is also highly individualized. People grieve in their own way and when to move from grieving cant be dictated. However, each one would intuitively know on their own when it would be time to make certain steps towards healing. For break ups, acceptance and forgiveness plays an integral part in total healing.
Even if you were successful in getting him back by begging, there is still a great chance for it to fail after just some time. In addition, it might lead to resentment since you actually got back together for the wrong reasons.
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.
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.
“It took me eight months to get over my ex. For six months after the split, I was depressed and discouraged about finding anyone ever again. I ended up reading the book Become Your Own Matchmaker by Patti Stanger, which gave me a new perspective on dating. I realized that my previous relationship wasn’t meant to be and that finding the right guy could take time. So, I focused on improving my life for myself, not some guy. I took a break from dating and filled my life with things like spending time with friends, working out, and planning a big move—I met Mr. Right a month later.” –Julie D.
In order to move on, you have to be able to heal. While you might still be in love with your ex, you won’t be able to move on if you don’t heal properly. For some, healing means spending a week in bed crying; for others, it means burning everything he ever gave you. Whatever it means to you, you have to have time to heal. Even if you are still in love with him, it’s important to get all the hurt out of your system.
Before you should do something to win the heart of your ex-boyfriend, you need to spend time and exert some effort towards improving yourself. Make sure that you build your confidence and self-esteem, too.
Getting back together with your ex-boyfriend can be a challenge. You first need to spend some time reflecting on the relationship and all the events leading up to the breakup. What was your part in it? Taking the time to understand what went wrong will help you to avoid the same mistakes in the future.
Recall who initiated the breakup. Was it you? If so, did you do it after careful thought or in a fit of anger that you now regret? Was it your ex, and did he or she have specific reasons? Was it a mutual decision?
This is all about “doing you” and filling your free time with activities. Keeping busy with fun activities will help you not to miss the time with your ex quite as much as if you are laying around thinking about him.

A few days later she got in contact with me and I arranged another date. Breakfast was all I could do due to me leaving for home. It went well. So well, that she wanted to see me once more before I left. On this date she mentioned that she would be in my city in April, and that we should get drinks when she’s there. Once again, no signs that she wanted to be kissed during this date either. She even said “I know you want to kiss me, but it’s not going to happen” and I was kind of bummed. I followed her to the interstate and before I got on it I decided to try my luck and I told her to pull over. She said “No, I know you want to kiss me and it’s not happening” so I kept my cool. On the way home, she called me and I mentioned to her that she could come out to my place to visit me next weekend. As soon as I said this, she got very angry and told me that the dates were just to “keep our friendship” and that we aren’t dating anymore. She went on to tell me she had already slept with another guy. I kept my composure as best as I could but needless to say this really confused me. Where did I go wrong?

Writing down his painful feelings helped to free Peter from continuously thinking of them. Writing and then talking with his therapist about his thoughts enabled him to let go of beating himself up in anger and also of drowning himself in self-pity.
you for being an absolute life saver recently for me. Your posts are helping me get through every single day. I was just wondering if you had any opinion or any insight into what potentially could have caused my current situation.
This is one of the worst things you can do – because all that does is signal to him that he’s in control and that you’re not going anywhere – which means there’s no reason for him to get back together with you.
This is what you can do now. Look back on your relationship and think about everything you learned. Perhaps it turned out that you wasted your time dating someone incompatible with you. Perhaps it transpires that your ideals were actually too different in the end. Maybe you came on too strong, or perhaps you didn’t come on strong enough. There are always lessons to be learned, and it’s important that you learn them.
