Women are submissive by nature and they want their man to be the polar opposite (dominant). Leaving decisions (could be about anything) to her, is submissive behavior by you, and it places her in the dominant role – a role that the female kind doesn’t take naturally to.

My boyfriend broke up with me almost 2 weeks ago. Our relationship lasted for 2 years. At first, he said he wanted some time and space. And then suddenly, he broke up with me and told me that he wants to spend his with his family and friends. I also think that all the bad memories of us were the only ones that stayed on his mind. He blocked me on all social media sites and also my number. We just talked yesterday and talk about the things that didn’t work out. He also told me that he’d unblock me and work out on being friends. I’m planning on starting NC but we have the same circle of friends where we see each other often and we work together, what do you suggest that I would do? How can I make him miss me and realize all the good things that has happened to us.

Get in shape- There is no argument that you can make to me to say that this isn’t a good idea. This is especially true if (no offense) you are a little overweight. However, even if you are a workout fanatic don’t let your breakup change that side of you.

Ouch! That definitely hurts. Nevertheless, if you get a response like this you just have to be polite, positive and collected. Remember, you are the one that has to be in control. You may have made one of the following mistakes:

But don’t get me wrong, he really loved me. Every cell in my body could feel it. He cared for me more than anything else in the world and even his curfew was the result of his concern for me. His only flaw is that he’s too stubborn and possessive. He was awfully nice and good to me otherwise. I really regret having not cherished him more when I could.

Only once, about 40 days in did we text for more than 5 minutes. She told me our relationship never had the “depth” she was looking for and she had found someone else that supports her in ways I didn’t. She said she was sorry for dragging me along when she really knew she didn’t want me anymore for a little bit of time.

So i wrote him that i am sorry for making the mistake IN THE PAST for telling about my pain to our common friends. And that if it’s true what he wants, then be it. If he wants to talk, he can contact me..

So you’ve read through all five points of why you shouldn’t get back with your ex, and you genuinely feel like none of them apply to you? See if you can confirm your beliefs about your compatibility and make note of whether or not the following five steps resonate with you.

I talked to her over the phone for over two hours last night and she persistently and very surely said she no longer have any feelings for me and she doesn’t have to think about it anymore. Her tone very so cold and rock-solid.

Waiting out bad timing: Whether or not a couple has a shot at a successful rekindled relationship “has to do with the reason a couple broke up in the first place,” Kristen Mark, assistant professor and director of the Sexual Health Promotion Lab at the University of Kentucky, told Mic. Mark says couples need to assess whether the breakup reason was “one that can be worked through or whether it was a true deal breaker.”

For a woman, separation is not typically prompted by boredom or her husband’s loss of looks. It is mostly about safety — she flees that which threatens her. In fact, that is why many a woman will take out a restraining order against her husband or forbid him from contacting her. She has felt out-of-control and at his mercy for many years, and thinks that she will remove her husband’s power to hurt her if she creates a “husband-free” zone.

Ok. So it’s complicated. !! I left my husband 10 years ago for another man. I have stayed very close to him because of kids and stuff. I have always regretted leaving him and for the past year have tried to get back with him. He thought about it and we “hooked up ” a few times but then he said he didn’t want to get back together. We still do stuff as a family and neither one of us is in a relationship. I’m scared to push myself on him to much because I don’t want to scare what I do have of him away. Help. I really want us to be a couple again!!!

            Men, if your wife has left you, she has felt hurt for a long time. It is likely that she sought to communicate her feelings, but you interpreted the passion of her words as whiny complaints or attacks. You responded not with understanding or compassion, but with defensiveness and correction as you warded off the verbal rocks she was throwing. This left her feeling alone, unheard, and unvalued.

This guide covered the basics, but to have a full understanding of what you should do, you should read the full four steps in the How She Wins Him Back eBook. It’s available free of charge and goes over every one of the above steps in detail, ensuring that you have the best chance of success.

So this is my story, I met a girl in college who is a couple years younger than me and throughout that year and the next we just had an unbelievable relationship. We would talk everyday and occasionally see each other on weekends. I knew she liked me through her friends and she knew I liked her, but we never were official boyfriend and girlfriend, but there were times when we both hinted at that outcome. I told her that I want her in my life and she wanted me to be in her life, but not in the same way. I texted her saying I couldn’t be just friends with her and that I’ll always have love for her because she was the first person I fell in love with in my life. 8 months ago I made a huge mistake and went over to her house back home unannounced and did it so no one would know I was there to drop off a handwritten letter after texting her; I went over to her house 3 times because the first two times I was afraid of what she would think if I did that when I hadn’t been over there before. This mistake backfired on me and she found out I had been stopping by her house a couple times before, and it creeped her out now she has blocked me on every social media accounts and I haven’t talked to her in 8 months. I’ve been thinking a lot about her like everyday morning, during, and at night before I go to sleep, and even dream about her. I know she isn’t my ex but in other peoples eyes she was definitely more than just a friend to me, and I want nothing more to have her back in my life, but I’m pretty sure she hates me and doesn’t want anything to do with me anymore. What should I do? I moved across country for work, but found out some family stuff is going on that I might have to move back home to where she and I both live, and I know that once I do I’ll be reminded of the fact that I lost the only girl I cared about and it is killing me inside. Asking for advise on what to do, and if there is anything I can do to make her trust me again and hopefully someday have her back in my life

For example: “Now that we are talking and reconnecting, I feel like I should be honest with you and tell you I would like to get back together.” It’s important that you follow this statement with a discussion of how you will approach the relationship this time around and how you are willing to shift or change your habits so the relationship is stronger. “I know I made mistakes in the past and I am working on my own issues outside of our relationship. But if you are willing, I would like for us to try to be together again.”

I would recommend you following through with no contact to give her the time she needs to let go of any negative emotions of you and your ex. At the same time, focus on picking yourself up from the hurt you feel because she’s not going to come back into your life if you’re an emotional mess. Work on yourself and after following the no contact rule, if the decision to win her back remains the same, you could initiate contact once more with her.

If you do contact him and he doesn’t want to get back together, then it’s simply not the time for you two. Let him live in the regret that he didn’t get back together with you, while you go off and create an incredible life without him.

Wherever possible, and once you are able to do so after the painful period has passed, get back to being you, do things that make you happy and do all you can so you are living your life to the point of a radiance coming off you. Women who carry themselves in this way are very attractive to men.

Hey my name is Wendy, me and my now boyfriend have been together for 6 months and we ended breaking up. It was rough because I really do love him and he made a big impact on my life. Anyways I knew it was the right thing to get back with him because even after we broke up he still texted and called me like he always did. After a couple of days of always seeing each other where ever we went he came up to me and asked me out again. I knew it was right to say yes because he would always tell me and show me that he loves me in anyway he could. Well we are still together and it’s been going really great!!!!

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.

This one is risky and may not get you a yes to a meet up but it allows you the ability to try again later whereas the method below this one pretty much lays your cards on the table. Ok, the way this works is simple:

Since it has been over a year, perhaps you can refer to this article as a guideline to getting your ex back. I would suggest that you start off as friends first and work your way from there if you really want her back.

The foundation of friendship: Jaya and Matt credit a lot of their relationship strength to their underlying friendship that stayed consistent even through their breakups, one sustained by emails, Gchats and late-night phone calls.

When you were single, you pursued your wife to win her heart. You wooed her with gifts, candlelight, and soft music. Maybe you wrote her letters or sang her songs. However you did it, by all the attention you showed her, she felt desired and cherished, like she was a princess on a glass hill who was worth a great quest. By the way you listened to her, she came to trust you, finally feeling that her heart would be safe with you. Whether you knew it or not, you convinced her you would be her heart’s protector.

This is crucial because right now, if you’ve been dumped or if your ex isn’t interested in giving the relationship another shot, then he or she almost certainly thinks of you in a negative light. Even if your breakup was totally amicable and he or she has told you they still love you, the reality is that your ex just doesn’t think of you as someone they want to be with. If your breakup was ugly or you’ve made a lot of mistakes since the breakup, it’s more likely that he or she sees you as “that desperate loser ex”.

Another than this, I recommend you to read Brad Browning’s The Ex Factor Guide  because it is one of the powerful guides ever written on ex back topic. It will show you why your relationship goes south and how you can bring your ex girlfriend back with the help of text messages.

Well, it seems that he himself seems reluctant to meet you right now for whatever reasons. It could very well be that it’s too soon still, and you should give him more time and let him initiate on a meeting up instead. You’ve tried a couple of times and have been met with rejection so I don’t advice trying any further or you might push him away. Just take it casually, continue to focus on yourself first, and don’t let these little rejections get you down.

For Olivia, 29, and James, their sixth-month break allowed them to examine the one-sided nature of the relationship. After dating for a year in college in Texas, Olivia told Mic, “We broke up because I decided to attend grad school in New York. I had wanted to attend this school since before we ever dated, so when I got in, I felt I had to follow my dream.”

I know that this isn’t exactly due to something wrong with me specifically, that he may still need time to find himself and a new balance after his split. I know that dating a separated man is risky, I was timid going into it. What I am trying to figure out now is this: if we do in fact break up tomorrow, I want him to know that I will still be here ready to work on things and keep cultivating a relationship. That I want him and I to pull through this and that if he needs time away, that’s completely fine with me. I have thought about my reasons for this and they’re centered around the fact that we established a great partnership, a wonderful connection, a respect for one another, a support system, that we have similar interests/morals/life goals, and that I see great potential for a future in this. I know that he needs to be his best self and completely mourn and detach himself from his former life as a twosome with his ex before he can be in a relationship, and if he suddenly realized that maybe he hasn’t completely done that yet – I get it. That’s okay (kind of wish the “I love you part” wasn’t said then…). All of that said, I still want HIM. I want HIM to be my person, I want him in my future. I am planning to go tomorrow and listen a great deal, say my bit, thank him for who and what he was to me and the time that we had together, and tell him that I’ll always be here for him. I plan on establishing and sticking to the “no contact contract” (yes, I gave it a nickname to try and think a little more positively about the whole situation…giggle away, everyone! 🙂 ) and then follow the rest of the steps. I just DON’T know how to convey to him that I see all of these things and want all of these things and that I DO love him and respect him and his process immensely without looking like a needy beggar who cannot accept reality. I am none of those things. I am a person who has met someone where unfortunately circumstances prevent from us having the relationship that I know we could and that we’ve had thus far, despite hiccups along the way. I am a strong and independent person who knows what she wants and is prepared to wait for/fight for it.

Whether if you’re madly in love with your significant other or looking to get your ex back it is very important for you to be aware of the power struggle. You also must continuously adjust according to the dynamics that you are both in; at times let go and other times take a stand and be a bit tougher with the one you love; out of love for them and to save your relationship from itself!

“I can see now,” Peter explained to her, “that in my depression about work I became totally self-centered. I withdrew from you, so no wonder you felt angry and distanced from me. As both of us withdrew from each other we lost our sexual connection.  I felt desparate for attention.  Then I took the ultimate wrong turn by seeking sexual attention from an infidelity. Big mistake!  I’m so glad that now I’m looking for a job that will be a better fit for me. I think I’ve found one, and I’m thrilled at the prospect.”  

You might not care about that right now, but you would do later on, because how couples reunite can have ramifications for how the relationship is after the reconciliation. Make it clear to your ex you think the relationship can still work, but communicate this calmly and as an adult.
