It seems like every time you talk to this friend, they’re complaining about something that’s gone wrong in their life, or telling you about a problem that’s not their fault, or unburdening their unhappiness onto you.
You see your ex’s latest Instagram post or read an article that he or she might like, and you reach out. An innocent drink to catch up? Sure, you think. And before you know it, you’re back where you started: dating someone you know is kinda sorta wrong for you, but you just can’t help it.
So my boyfriend broke up with me about a month and a half ago and we had not contacted each other since. I have kept up well with the no contact rule, and not at one point after the break up did I act clingy or needy. I kept all my facebook status very positive as you said and took the time to work on myself, and I feel great!
To humility and self-awareness I would add skills. That’s why I wrote my book Power of Two and the website poweroftwomarriage.com. I’d sure love to see more folks access the gratifications of a fully loving committed relationship….

If he “guessed” that you cheated on him. And instead of talking to you like an adult he decided to leave you and date other girls then it means he is very immature and you should stay away from him. Even if you two get back together, what is to stop him from “guessing” something else about you and leave again?
Nobody wants to be with a needy person. Pleading and being needy is unattractive and is only going to push your ex further away from you. It will only make them think that they made the right decision by breaking up with you.

On the day you got married, she entrusted her heart to you, but like most guys, you didn’t have a clue how to take care of her heart. You didn’t even know she gave it to you, so you didn’t protect it carefully. You kept it in your pocket with your car keys and slammed it down on the dresser every night with your wallet. Unfortunately, after a guy says “I do” he also says “I’m done.” He relates to his new wife the same as a guy who has just caught a fish. When a man catches a fish for dinner, does he leave the bait on the hook? NO. He puts his lure in the tackle box, and takes his fish home to eat. He got what he came for, so stopped fishing.

I knew something was a missed but she wouldn’t admit to anything until we communicated via text. She said she felt insecure, afraid, and confused as regards my overseas studies and my lack of time spent with her. Further, she told me she’s no longer happy being in a relationship with me. A few days later, I met her up and broke up with her. She cried a lot and as I walked her back to her place, she gave me a hug and told me she wants sometime to think over the entire situation and that we should not break up at this point. I agreed to it.
Bit by bit she started to acknowledge the fact that I truly love her, care about her and really want to make commitments with her but it’s to late now and she firmly believes that I haven’t really changed and will be the old self in less than a month.
Once you re-gain control over your emotions then in the 2nd step you will find out reasons and causes that lead to breakup. You just can’t go to old relationship with just a simple apology. You have to fix the old problem that leads to breakup to win your ex back once again.
So, my ex and I are kind of talking on and off. She broke up with me because she didn’t think I loved her and she didn’t think I was sexually attracted to her. I was dealing with stress and had a porn addiction. She turned me on like crazy but I felt bad because it would take me forever to finish because I had usually taken care of myself before. (I have since fixed this addiction). We talk, but she is still having doubts about getting back together, she thinks things will just be the same. I keep showing support for her and try to show that I am more in tune with being there for her where I lacked before. Just having a tough time breaking through her wall. I don’t know what else I can do. I guess just take my time building the trust?
Depending on how it went, my suggestion would be to continue without contact and potentially move on. If you feel this way, it means you aren’t over her yet, but she’s starting to date other people so it’s better for you not to linger behind or you’ll be feeling affected every time you see her with another guy.
So if your relationship with her stayed the same after 6 months or after a year (in other words if it failed to evolve and grow) then it would have violated her desire for progression. It would have made her realize that you are not the guy who’s going to give her a long-term partnership and finally a family. She would then have seen you as a poor suitor, dumped you and gone off to find a guy who shows more signs of commitment.
We men naturally don’t attract to those girls that show power and ambition (we view them as thread). After getting into the relationship most guys lost their purpose and make their girlfriend only purpose of their life.
Hi! I broked up with my boyfriend one month and a week ago, I broked up with him because he became distant with no reason, he was being very dry with me and I always asked him if I was being a good girlfriend and he always said that I was perfect. We didn’t have any problems during our relationship of 3 months. So, I broked up with him through a text “I don’t want to be with you anymore” and he replied that it was a good relationship but we were having many issues and that life made it complicated, so it was better to break up. I don’t know if I want him back because he became distant out of the blue, he didn’t call me or text me as much as before and he said “he was busy with his job” but I knew he had free time. I just want to know why he didn’t want to be with me if things were going well between us, I don’t know what my mistake was. I haven’t talked to him since we broked up, I deleted him from social media that day because I didn’t want him to talk to me. What did I do wrong in the relationship? Should I text him or should I let it go? Thank you, merry Christmas!!
SIDE NOTE: You may feel as if I am really grilling your approach to relationships here, but as I said, there’s a positive purpose to it. You need to see what went wrong so that when you apply my how to win your ex back steps, you won’t be sabotaging the effectiveness of those steps by behaving in ways that got you dumped to begin with.
Nagged To Death = A man looks at this as if his woman no longer is satisfied with what he has to offer or bring to the table. This doesn’t mean you can’t always express your feelings you just need to do a better job at mixing them in with love and admiration for him.
I am sorry you are going through this. I am late to reply to your comment and I hope the meeting went well. I think you should do at least a month of no contact. I know you are afraid of her moving on, but not giving her space is just going to push her further away. By giving her space, you will make her miss you and second guess her decision. You need to heal, both emotionally, physically and mentally before you contact her again. If the breakup came out of the blue, then it was probably a loss of attraction and connection. You need to get her attracted to you again before you can start rebuilding a connection. And to attract her again, you need to be the best version of yourself. Read this article for a more detailed plan.
A woman’s goal in such a conversation is not to win an argument or to flaunt her superior debating skills. Simply put, she is typically crying out for understanding, and wants her husband to respond with empathy and help. She wants not to be corrected, but to be validated in her distress. That is why a woman might make her points citing “facts” that a man believes are inaccurate. Unfortunately, we husbands think we can change our wives’ minds employing logic and reason, and by correcting their misstatements. But women usually aren’t trying to win an argument and don’t want us to tell them that they shouldn’t feel what they know they feel. All they know is that they feel something deeply and want us to understand how they are feeling. Correcting them is a big mistake on our part.
I assumed all responsibility for my mistakes and during the following month I tried to warm her heart by writing a long apologising letter to which she responded that all the compromises in this relationship were made by her which in turn made her unhappy.
HE never likes quotes like that, but now he did. And i don’t know what should that mean. Because if he wants me to make a step towards him again – as he got used to -, why did he delete the cute cat today? 🙁
I broke up with her last week after she got in my face about our problems. I’m doing the no-contact, but isn’t the lying about an ex (her first love of 5 years) to my face, enough of a reason to end it and NOT even consider going back??
At first he said he needed a break and after three weeks plus he called it off totally, he has a strong mind too. H e called on my birthday and said he misses me, but its been two weeks plus after the real breakup, can i still get him back with this tips?
