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. 

The last of the things you want to do in such occasion is to become hasty and nervous. Do not let the fear of losing your boyfriend overcome you. Just keep calm and cool. Shake hands well enough to let her know that you were never ever in close touch with the man.

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.

We would then get in contact again like nothing ever happened and he would call me “baby” send me kisses and act normal. Until one day he just completely stopped talking to me and started ignoring mist of my texts.

“The best way for a girl to get her ex back would be to make the guy jealous. She can flirt with other guys when he’s around, look super-cute and talk with him a little, and then talk to some other guys for a bit longer. Every guy wants to be the best, so if he sees her flirting and having a good time, and it’s no longer because of him, he’s going to miss that feeling. This tactic works for two reasons: 1) It may land you back with your ex. 2) It may land you with someone new. Play the field and the options are plentiful. Sit and wallow waiting for him to call back and you’re setting yourself up for heartbreak.”

Read the signs. If your ex wants to get back with you, you’ll know. How did you know that he wanted you the first time? It’s likely that he’ll be sending similar signals your way. If he flirts with you, tells you that you look nice, lightly touches you, or just always asks what you’re up to or if you’re seeing anyone else, then yeah, he probably wants you back.

You need to look within yourself and be honest. If you think you can still trust the person wholeheartedly then go for it. But you have to be careful. Seriously—if he cheated on you once he’ll cheat on you again, that’s for sure! What I’m trying to say is, it’s better if you don’t look back. Less conflict, worry-free and new possibilities for love and better life. Science have proven that once a cheater is always a cheater so do yourself some favor and look for someone else who would see your true value…

You could text him on that day, wishing him all the best and a comforting text, which may help break the ice and ease on the emotions he may be feeling. See how it works out from there, and continue accordingly.

I, too was heartbroken. I was so mad at myself for being such a fool and I almost hated the world for being so unfair. I wanted to slap just anybody, and wanted to be alone for a while (thank goodness I have no suicidal tendencies). I was emotionally tortured that time. I was crying while at work. And every time I hear the sound of some familiar love songs I can’t help but cry my heart out. I wanted to move on. I wanted to forget him as soon as I can (if only it can happen the next morning when I wake up) but I couldn’t. Everywhere I looked, I saw him…there’s just too many memories and I thought i would go crazy trying to avoid them. That’s when I’ve realized that it’s not enough to just want to move on…I have to do something about it and fortunately I was successful! Let me share with you the things I did and I’m pretty sure it will help you too.

Getting back on his feet involved reconnecting with old friends, and making contact with new ones as he pursued interests in activities he enjoyed. He joined a book group, found a place with religious services that he liked. He recalled the sports activities that in better times, he used to enjoy and returned to doing those activities again. Bit by bit, his spirits lifted.

I just had my first break up 4 days ago. I got talking to him a year ago, we were in the relationship for 6 months. We became friends debating about intellectual stuff (like Quantum Physics), we had different viewpoints and it was fun talking to him. There was constant bickering, but we talked for hours, days together.. We hung out for the first time when he wanted me to help him wrap a present for his teacher who was leaving. When we parted after that, there was something we both felt, never talked about it. His friends pushed him to date me because they said we were perfect together, and to prove them wrong, he asked me out for a movie two days later. We met at the mall, although the movie couldn’t happen (no tickets), so we hung around instead. His favorite teacher had left for another city that day, he was upset. Things were a little subdued between us (less debating), but he got discussing us about the pros and cons of dating each other. The only con was that he was moving for college, and it’d be a long-distance thing. When we were about to leave the restaurant, for some reason, I said he couldn’t lift me up. To prove me wrong, when out of the restaurant, he suddenly lifted me off my feet. I blushed, he looked at me and smiled, I screamed for him to put me down. Later that day, he did it twice again, he squeezed be between his arms, stuck close to me, was goofy, all the signs of showing he was into me. We decided later that night to be together, but be open to any other ‘fits’ that might come our way. We weren’t in love then. It was the first relationship for both of us. Before he left for college, we had an official date and we kissed. The kiss was enough to connect our souls, felt heavenly. We soon fell in love. Things were smooth even though we were long-distance. There were arguments too. I’m temperamental, he’s arrogant, we both are impatient and stubborn. Nevertheless, we were deep in love.

But when I’m in my normal state, I’m all “it is what it is” or “my life is so great, he’s a fool for leaving me.” I accept how different we were and how unlikely it was for us to succeed when we met but if you saw us together you’d get it and I gave him my all. He met my entire family (like all 60 of them), even the ones out of state. And he was so involved with me. I’ve never felt so loved in my life. My son kept asking us when we were gonna get married cus he wanted to call him his stepdad. Because of my son, I usually keep a wall with everyone and only get that involved when I know and I knew. I was done. He was the rest of my life. I was 100% sure and ready. I guess he was just trying out being an adult with me. (he’s 26, i’m 28). I still f***ing hate the reality of it all and miss him every day, but there’s nothing I can do and I’m fighting for moving forward even when it feels like blind shuffling. I still have a long way to go to be moved on so I’m no magically healed person. I just know when I’m in the normal mind that logic tells me I will meet someone else who I feel just as happy and loved with in the future, if I can just heal from this.

Now, breaking up is never really easy to do. But for some, the process of getting over a failed relationship can linger a little longer than for others, which sometimes begs the loaded question: why can it be so difficult to get over an ex?

I like this article. It was very insightful, and really aimed to help the obsessive psyche of women fixated on what they can’t have, relationships that they want to mend, trying to get married…etc. While I agree that being happy and getting over the guy truly can attract him back, the truth is most of the time it doesn’t. And well, this tactic is rather hypocritical ‘cuz if a women has truly moved on, what will make her want the guy back if he comes back? It’s a tricky maneuver to do. It’s basically saying get over him, no strings attached, but ya, look over your shoulder in case he does. It’s not a true method of getting him back, in my opinion. But sometimes this method is the best outcome for both parties.

Here is the way to jump start the flow again. Sit down and write a letter to him from the heart. Then put it in an envelope and give it to him. This will open him back up to wanting to talk with you again.

This means not seeing each other, not being around his/her family members, no phone calls, no e-mails, no text messages, no Facebook and no IMs. Just until you feel that you can converse with him/her on a purely platonic level, without an ulterior motive (like getting back together).

Being proactive about your breakup early on will help prepare you for the later stages. Learn which are best techniques for getting your ex’s attention back, and for quickly making him need you again.

I’ve been through 3 years with my ex girlfriend. We were having a good time before and discuss about our future and last 3 months she just texted that she’s sure that she wanted to marry me. And yet suddenly something happen 1 week after her birthday party. At that time i found shes hiding our photo in instagram then i ask her why you do that ? Why you hide me in your social media. Then she found her reason that a week after she say that she needs a break. Than the reason is she feels bored and wanted to be alone. And im being needy at that time.i just keep asking her to go with this relationship despite we are too deep inside. With her and her family.
