Evelyn, a collegiette from Amherst College, says that although it can take a lot of self-discipline, going on a digital hiatus for a while can be a great way to get over him. “When my ex and I broke up, I made a pact with myself that I’m not allowed to Facebook stalk him until I can be 100 percent sure that I won’t care if I see pictures of him with another girl (which will probably be in like another 5 years),” Evelyn says. “I still haven’t gone on his profile once!”
Prior to that though, ask yourself why she didn’t show respect, it probably has got to do with the way you acted around her. If you were too needy in the previous relationship with her, you invited her to walk all over you. If that was the case, you will have to work on your masculine qualities and remove the needy behavior and instead present her with a more confident version of yourself. You should have done this work on you during the NC period.
3. One last thing before asking him out: Figure out whether he’s single. If he doesn’t list his relationship status online, check out his Facebook photos to see whether the same girl reappears in various cozy poses with him. Or you can subtly feel him out by asking, in a Facebook message or e-mail, about old friends you both had, and then segue into a conversation about his personal life in general. Hopefully his love sitch will come up.
Ideally, your ex will be working on himself, as well, although this isn’t something you can control. If you two both commit to bettering yourselves, then you can start a new relationship that’s far better than your last one.
Great article! This guy I have been talking to online and I were in a long distant relationship. We met up every 2-3 months over the past year and talked every day. Recently communication started slowing down and I was getting insecure, we had a huge argument because I accused him of using an online dating site. He was upset I didn’t believe him and we exchanged harsh words via text but he refused to talk about it over the phone. After we ended it in the heat of the argument, he would message me about what travel insurance we used so I could get reimbursed for the trip we were about to go on to see eachother. I would answer calmly… Then the next day he would message about the other trip he booked for my birthday asking which site he used (I’m assuming so he could cancel). I then broke down and said please do not message anymore unless you want to work on us because it hurts me to think we won’t see eachother ever again. I tried initiating the no contact rule… But I broke down and said I still miss you handsome then asked him a question about something else random not the relationship. He ignored both and I asked why he was ignoring me and he said because he was busy at work. Which makes sense! Then recently we spoke when I was at a girls weekend and he said “Do you miss me?” I took this as he was trying to string me along and made a sassy response back…then I was upset and started going off on hurt I was… He ignored all those texts and the next day I started a different convo not about our relationship which he didn’t ignore then I ended it with how I love him and I do miss him and I’m sorry he said “Give me time and I might forgive you”. So I left it at that… But I am confused does that mean he just wants me to move on? He isn’t cutting off communication and usually when he ignores me is when I keep talking about us and ending and the argument.
I really enjoyed reading this as well. I was in a relationship with my high school sweet heart for almost 9 years…we have been on and off for the last two…so its been about a year since the ‘real’ break-up…he is now with someone else…I can’t help but sometimes see hhis profile pics with her…it makes me literally sick to my stomach every time and sends me into a deep deepp depression…I kEep trying to realize my attachment to him is of psychological nature but there is this voice in the back of my mind that keeps saying “he is your soul mate.” “You will never find anyone better.” I am filled with regret even though. I know it was just as much his fault as mine in regards to the demise of “us”. I’m working on moving forward and realizing there can be joy, beauty and love in my life.
Get to know one another. Especially if it has been a while since you were together, you and your ex have both changed as individuals in that time. Don’t assume you know everything about him or her. Take time to get to know one another again.

Detach yourself. Accept that for right now you’re going to stand on your own two feet without your partner, and resist the urge to rush into another relationship. In doing so, you may come to understand realities about your previous relationship, or your ex, that you hadn’t noticed before. View the relationship objectively, using your brain rather than your heart. Ask yourself if he was the kind of boyfriend that you would want for your best friend, sibling, or child.
Build your own waterslide. Put a slippery tarp down in your backyard and keep the hose running. Slip and slide down the tarp like a bullet. If you do not have the necessary supplies to make your own slide, grab some friends and go to a water park.
I broke up with my boyfriend more than 2 months ago and I went through the process of breaking off with him so hard. I’ve been in a long distance relationship with this guy over a full year. In fact, I knew him 17 years ago. We reconnected on Facebook when he divorced his ex-wife about 2,5 years.
Again, showing her that she’s got you 100% by the balls like this will make her bored, which equates to reduced attraction that contributes to a break up. It’ll also indicate to her that you have no other viable dating options (because if you did have such options, why would you be so concerned with stressing your commitment?).
Because something about your behavior is making her feel as if you are not really committed to her. She feels that, although she’s attracted to you, you won’t give her what she wants and needs from a relationship (i.e. support her, and not keep f***ing other girls). This is completely different from a situation where you’re trying to get a girl back when she has moved on.
Take down the photos hanging on your bulletin board and stick all the gifts they bought you for Valentine’s Day, your birthday, and those handful of days when they messed up royally and put them in the trash. Even if your favorite t-shirt that you still wear all the time was theirs, or you don’t think you’re ready to dump the handful of love letters you have saved in your drawer, giving away the old only makes room for the new.
Don’t put pressure on yourself. The first step to getting over your ex is acceptance. The second step is to keep walking. You have to move on in life and have a positive attitude. Love yourself and you will be loveable to the world around you.

But this boy… I have never felt this way about anyone before… and I know he’s trying to move on with another girl but he just recently admitted to me that he “thinks about me every day” when I ran into him when he was picking up his little sister from school.
Breakup is hard as it is, especially if you are still obsessing over your ex and wondering all the time whether or not they miss you. On top of that, if your ex starts dating someone else, it’s almost feels like someone punched you really hard in your stomach (while wearing a wolverine claw). Nothing can prepare you for this feeling. But it happens. And no, it’s nothing to worry about.
If you’re a homebody, try being more outdoorsy. The sun and beautiful weather and landscape are really good to restore your mood. It’s so much better than languishing in your sorrow at home watching endless TV and binging on calorie-dense snacks.

Answer: There are some serious questions you must ask yourself if the reason of your breakup was because you cheated on him OR he cheated on you. You’ll need to do some serious soul searching and ask yourself why you cheated or why did he cheat?

The most important thing for you to do while your ex is in a rebound relationship is be cool about it. Whatever happens, do not tell your ex to break up with their rebound partners. Let it be their idea. They have a huge hole in their life after breaking up with you which they are trying to fill with someone new. They will soon realize that a rebound relationship can not fill the emptiness and they will end the relationship. (Do you think his relationship is not just a rebound?
