I still love my ex but we work together and before we broke up we’re together for three years not only this but he lives around the corner and I have tried to move on but I always see him with his new girlfriend they became a couple as when me and him were dating he slept with her on multiple occasions

Remind him, through your actions, why he fell in love with you in the first place.

If you had firmer career goals when you first met him, but let those goals slip, maybe you should spend some time fortifying the goals once more. This reflection on how you’ve changed is a constructive exercise regardless of whether you’re getting your ex back or not. Focus on those positive attributes in need of repair, and you will not just become more attractive to your ex-boyfriend, but you’ll also become a stronger person independently.

We social media-savvy collegiettes like to keep connected, checking sites like Twitter and Facebook multiple times a day. But there’s nothing that’s more of a downer than seeing your ex (in a picture with his new girlfriend) pop up in your newsfeed.

That’s why you should block or, at the very least, unsubscribe from your ex-boyfriend on Facebook.

I have successfully started cross-fit, a new job and become open in possibly moving for my career and taking the next step in growth. I have also sought therapy, opened myself back to God, and dove into various self-help books.
