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.

Truth is that our bodies and heads tell us to act in a certain way after a break up, we act on impulse and our emotions. This is not a good idea as you may already know. It is common to be tearful and erratic, not knowing where to turn, sometimes we can blurt things out to our ex boyfriends that we regret later. Everybody does it, it is human nature to do so, but the thing that you have to remember is that you have to fight against these urges if you are to be successful in making him see you positively and want you back again.

Hello, after a relationship of 2 years with my bestfriend (since 5 years) I heard from one of his mate he was already with this girl from his class. I taught she was a rebound because 3 weeks after the breakup they already were dating. My ex told me that he would tell me if he has a new girlfriend but he never told about her. But now I think she is more than a rebound.. It’s been 2 months and they follow the familymembers on instagram. I don’t understand him, why doesn’t he just tell me he has a new girlfriend? I’m the kind of person who wants always the best for the other person. I told him I want him to be happy, even if it’s not me who makes him happy. We had a fight last month because I still had contact with one of his best friends. He told me he could not party with me on NYE because he couldn’t be drunk in the same room as me (we have a lot of common friends). I wrote him a letter to say I’m okay with the breakup and I think it’s for the best to give each other space. He didn’t respond on the letter, but after that he puts more snapchats in our friends group to make me look at it. I don’t understand him?

“Yesterday, I wanted to read a novel that I have at home and, of course, the house is off-limits except at hours of my wife’s choosing. I could have phoned and arranged a time, but why am I always put in the position where I have to ask for something? It’s demeaning and emasculating.”

“After ending it with the boy I had been with for over a year, I was crushed. Everything I looked at and everywhere I went somehow always brought me back to him. So, finally one day I deleted his number from my phone, blocked him on AIM, deleted him on Facebook and MySpace, and got rid of all the pictures and teddy bears and everything that held a connection to him. By getting rid of everything that reminded me of him, it helped me to forget everything I didn’t want to remember.” –Melissa, 16

Get dressed, put on makeup and comb your hair. Now, grab your purse and leave your apartment. This is probably pretty difficult, but it’s necessary. Staying busy in the aftermath of a breakup gives you less time to obsess over him. Remember, you had a life before him, and you can have one after him, according to the Marie Claire website.

It is important to take time after breaking up and before trying to get your ex back to examine your own emotions and decide if you truly should be with that person. Rekindled relationships often suffer from a lack of trust and can be more likely to cycle on-again-off-again with repeated breakups. If you’re not 100% sure that you want to be with this person in the long-term, avoid further pain by doing your best to get over your ex instead of pursuing him or her again.[3]

Does this strategy work with short term relationships? I met this guy online, we dated for about 2 months, he told me repeatedly how I “checked all his boxes”, how much he liked me, how pretty and amazing and funny I was…we were intimate. And then out of nowhere his level of attention changed, he became disillusioned with the distance between us (we live an hour apart) and the lack of time we had to spend together. He started saying things like “I don’t deserve you”, “I can’t give you what you deserve”, which I’ve always known to be code for “I’m just not that into you anymore”. He tried to end it nicely, I kept holding on for about a day, and then probably thinking he had no other choice – he picked an issue with something I said and basically cut off all contact with me. Made it clear there was no more to discuss. It’s been 3 days and he’s already back on the dating site where we met. I am devastated. I really liked this guy…but apparently he’s already moving on looking for someone new and I’m still here bawling my eyes out. Does any of this work if the guy doesn’t have feelings for you anymore?

You are hilarious!! I am laughing so loudly whilst reading your articles….I’m scaring my dogs! I came across your website while I was googling and trying to understand why my now ex-fiance ‘assbag’ of 4 years breaks up with me (2nd time in 3 months), demands no contact then calls me, bawls during the conversation then tells me “he says he needs space” AGAIN…. he did this 3 months ago also…so now I’m thinking he’s emotionally inept and I’m left feel totally confused. But I am finding your articles are helping me alot….so thank you!!!!

if yes and you are mentally prepared for anything, you will still be friends, this options leads you to becoming numb, i sometimes love this method because it allows me to face the challenge squarely, expecting anything and when it finally happens i sigh with relief and move on, i used to stare at my ex’s photo with his wife really stare lol till i became numb and the reality sank in but i didn’t love him so much anyways. so good luck.

Make no mistake, aloofness is actually sexy to women, just like being an asshole is…there’s something alluring to them about the fact that you don’t feel like you need to try hard. BUT, if you overdid the whole play it cool thing, your girl would have interpreted it as you going cold/lacking interest in her.

If he ever thinks that you are stalking him or acting needy in any way, he could seriously be pushed away. Instead of missing you, he could end up feeling that he was lucky to have it end when it did.

More than three-quarters of all rebound relationships never make it past six weeks. During this time there are subtle ways to reconnect with your ex, using reinsertion techniques designed to get him to forget his new love interest and feel the overwhelming desire to be with you again.

Your not wanting to hurt his feelings is hurting him more in the long run. I suspect you just don’t want to be the “bad guy” in this, but your making it more difficult on the both of you. Tell him that you would like to go on a hiatus on your friendship together. Maybe you don’t realize it but your stringing him along by leaving the “friendship door” open. Out of sight. Out of mind. You can’t be friends right now (do not tell him that either or you’ll just be leading him on).  Really imho you do not need to be friends at all, b/c you’ve crossed that barrier/line and there is no going back. I’ve been on both sides of it, right now I’m speaking to you from your boyfriends perspective. I’m him 10 years from now. He’ll want you while he wants you and than when he doesn’t anymore he’ll probably dislike your, strongly. Let go now, so he can. Best of luck.

You first have to understand if him saying that you’re unable to focus on your career is a legitimate worry he has or if it’s an excuse to end things. That would determine if you should contact him, because if it’s a real concern he has, and you are able to convince him that you can stay focused and still be with him, then you should try to fix things.

I have been a faithful fan of yours over 3years now and i must admit that your team has been a source of inspiration and help to me. Sabrina has been awesome. Thank you. My case is simple. I have always wanted to marry a white guy right from my childhood though I am a black lady. When I grew older after high school? I worked in a company where they have lots of whites. But I didn’t get to hook up with one because I had to go to college. I’m in my final year. I will be graduating next year and hope to get scholarship to study abroad. I am 23years old. if anyone can hook me up with some white friends I would be grateful. or simply just recommend me to someone. Thanks a lot.

When you fixate on a specific outcome with a specific person, you ruin your attractive vibe since you can’t be happy unless you have the outcome you want… and every moment you’re unhappy you push the guy further and further away.

Change one thing about the past and the two of you might not be together. Change one thing about the past and she might not be the person you love. Our lives depend on the most slender threads, and even the smallest things can have huge impacts.

Right now, I’m going through the exact same thing. My ex broke up with me after he lost his father. We were together 3 years and lived together for just over 2 years. I love the idea of your relationship is what it is right now regardless of a title because that’s exactly how it is for us right now and I see how my being happy and poaitive now has made a huge change in how we interact with one another. My plan is to go on the market and really be open to what life has to bring my way, even if it’s not my ex in the future.

Even if my life ahead and the journey remains single, it’s a clear view, not a cloudy one. He was my last chance to have some semblance of a family life. (I am now 50+) It was the most painful relationship experience of my life, but I’d rather live authentically alone than living a lie just to have companionship.
