Basically, the no contact period should be as long as it takes you to get yourself together and feel great about your life without your ex. In my experience, it can take up to 30 days. However, in extreme cases, it could range from anywhere from 2 months to 6 months.
Communication is what makes or breaks a relationship. Lack of communication is the source of all problems between couples and can have negative consequences as soon as you stop sharing your ideas and opinions. On the other hand, couples that communicate effectively are involved in conflicts more rarely, and when they do have an argument, they use it as an opportunity to grow and find out something new about each other. Does your relationship need to alter its communication style? Take this quiz to find out!
I have no specific advice other than to relax, slow down, rebuild your confidence–and give him time to do the same. Also, be sure you’ve seriously learned from your prior mistakes lest you reconnect and make the same errors.
The quiz has been thoroughly tested and fine-tuned, so if you answer all questions honestly, the results should prove helpful. (This is not a scientific tool, though, and accuracy is not guaranteed. It is for entertainment purposes only.)
My main suggestion is to keep doing more of what you have been doing, that is, talking openly, letting go of any pressuring of each other, appreciating and enjoying the positive sides of your relationship, and taking on faith that if the relationship is meant to be, it will be.
A huge misconception out there is that because you did the dumping it is a lot easier to get back with your ex. This is completely NOT TRUE. Trust me, your going to have to do a lot of work, perhaps more than the women who were dumped.
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.
Thanks. We did text yesterday he said he had a crazy week because his dog was stolen. I’m not sure how often we should text at this point in time? Obviously I want to rebuild connection, it’s a little hard because he isn’t much of a texter. What should I talk about to rebuild connection?
A few days afterwards, we spoke on the phone for two hours and had a great conversation. We talked for two hours, one about the relationship and what happened, and the other just general talking, laughing, and having fun. A day or two after that, I told her I had a date, to which she got kind of upset but tried to brush it off by acting “happy” even though I heard her cry on the phone. The date ended up being cancelled, but I feel like that might’ve been a step backwards.
Reconnect with friends- Friends are great. You can talk to them about your problems and they will listen. You can rely on them in the bad times to pick you up. Careful though, don’t let them talk you into calling him before the no contact period is up.
