The secret of looking good is to wear clothes that are simple and clean. Even a tidy shirt, with a good pair of jeans and sneakers, will make you look good if you know how to present yourself.  You will look lot clean and catchy to your ex eyes even if your ex see it all before.

Prevent depression – Your break-up can make you prone to depression but you have to work hard to avoid it as much as possible. Avoid doing things that can only trigger depression. Some examples are constantly talking about your break-up with the people you know, being in a dark room for long hours, and sleeping the entire day.

We are already about 7,000 words into this article and I have only tackled three messages. The fact of the matter is that I don’t have the time it takes to explain 250 different text message types to you.

“I avoided my ex after we had broken up. I feel like if the relationship is over, it’s over for good! There is a reason why we aren’t together. I think it’s a horrible idea to keep in touch with an ex, especially if the breakup is recent.” –Genna, 16

That’s when I realized that if I want something I have to get it for myself. Enough was enough! I couldn’t continue dwelling in my misery, I had to do something, anything! I knew about the law of attraction but it was very hard for me to apply because I kept having negative thoughts.

I have once read every break-up article too. It’s okay that you still hurt 5 or 10 weeks later. You invested your heart in this person. What he is doing/feeling does not matter for your well being. I am 23, the man I love is 28. We dated for months, I loved him with all I had, even though we both knew he was leaving Los Angeles. He moved to a different country 2 weeks ago now to pursue his dream. I would have moved with him, but he did not try at all or consider making me a part of his life. Now why would I hope that in the future we can work out? I miss being him and what we could have been. He loves me, but I can only come to the conclusion that he does not love me the same – otherwise, he would not have so easily left me behind.

I know it’s hard, but try to stop thinking about him. Distract yourself by doing things you love! Eventually, you’ll realise that you can have plenty of fun without him, and you might realise why you broke up in the first place – and why it was probably a good thing!

However, if your boyfriend cheated on you with this girl, you may seriously want to rethink what you are getting yourself back into. If this is your case, trust me when I say it would be in your best interest to move on. Time heals a lot of things, and I can just about guarantee that if given enough time, you’ll come to realize that moving on was the right choice to make.

Start hanging out with him a bit. Start making your relationship a bit more friendly. Move on from the casual hello to a short conversation, and then even stick around and chat with him for ten or even twenty minutes. Make sure you always say goodbye first, though, and don’t make him linger longer than he wants to. This will make him even more sad to see you go. Then, wait for him to ask you to grab a coffee, or be bold and ask him for a drink.

You’re on a rebound, even though your heart isn’t in it. Dating and experiencing transitional “relationships” are vital to your healing. But don’t get too hot and heavy, because you’re not ready for anything serious. Make sure the guys you’re involved with are on the same page regarding speed. Go out and have fun with these gentlemen.

In any of the case do remember that like making a relationship survive is activity or work of two individuals, similarly the act of destroying it is also being shared by both. So that is why do not let your emotions overcome your thinking capability and then thinking of yourself as the sole responsible of problem is the last thing you want to do. Believe me!

This article is very helpful. I’m going to try it right away. I shouldn’t have any doubt. But I know my ex has completely moved on and he’s glad about leaving me cause my desperate act after the break up. He may be having a new affair too. And I don’t see him or we don’t have any common friends he lives distance from me. He is not in my Facebook friend list either. So there is no way for him to think about me or see my change. I just want to know under these circumstances can I still get my ex back? I know this is also a negative thought that I should not have. But if you can say something about this that’ll help me to be more positive. Thank you.

If you must remain in contact because of children or other shared obligations, know that there is a distinct difference between being friendly and being friends. True friendship means two people care about each other’s well-being and have one another’s best interest at heart. By the time many relationships end, it is often in question whether both parties can genuinely provide this kind of care and support for one another. The expectation that someone who didn’t treat you well while you were together will be capable of being a true friend afterward sets you up to continue being hurt. But choosing to be friendly means you can, without expectations, acknowledge the love you shared and honor that time in your life by treating the other person with kindness and respect.

Last week my boyfriend told me that he needed time to “think about us” because he wasn’t sure if my family would accept him, this was 2 days after he repeatedly told me he loved me and that he would make an effort to be a better boyfriend. Initially when he told me this I said my piece and explained to him that he was hurting me by shutting me out, but the following days I didn’t contact him and he didn’t contact me. On the 5th day I decided that I didn’t want to be in a relationship with a man who wasn’t sure about being with me. So I sent him a text stating I wanted to pick up my belongings and that I would come by after work the following day to retrieve them. The next day I contacted him to make sure he was home, he wanted me to stop by later than I planned, but I told him I wanted to get my things as soon as possible and be done. My exact words, he agreed to meet me and said he would be there when I arrived. I walked in his place grabbed my things didn’t say a word accept thank you when he handed me my shades and walked out without even looking at him. I deleted his number and unfriended him on facebook before I drove out the parking lot. I showed zero emotion but they truth is I’m really hurt because I loved him. I would be open to getting back together with him. I have been on a date since we broke up and another man is presently pursuing me(he has stated he wants a relationship) and I am rejecting him because I still have feelings for my ex. Did my actions drive him away for good, ( he knows I unfriended him because he blocked me) I don’t know if the No Contact rule will work with him because he uses the silent treatment himself. I will NEVER initiate contact with him because my pride simply won’t allow it. However, is there anyway to know he wants me back?

On that note… your strategy should be to start in the realm of subtlety, and slowly turn up the heat. Slowly! Getting your boyfriend back requires patience and discipline. You must pay attention to how he replies in words and actions to your subtle gestures before you think about making your interest a little more obvious.

We have had lengthly conversations and texts over the last month or so, him say that he knows he lost the best thing he ever had when I walked out, and that he is sorry so very sorry for hurting me and that he would do what ever he could do to get me back.

Do I still do mental gymnastics sometimes and begin convincing myself that I’m still not over her? Yes, I do. As do a handful of my clients that are engaged to other women. But our brains are experts at convincing ourselves (logically) that we want things that aren’t good for us (because we want them emotionally). [otp_overlay]
