Yes, I felt free in a way but totally sad ’cause I did wanna hang or talk or something, but he’s been a jerk for ignoring so long. I need to respect myself, but I want him back too. I haven’t blocked him from WhatsApp or Facebook, don’t plan to really, and I haven’t talked to him, but I really miss him. Should I just stand my ground and not reach out to him? I feel like this is the right thing to do and perhaps try to move on, but I love him. Thank you so much for your help and time, it means the world to me, well, to all of us.
also he has already given her diamonds for her recent birthday, seems to be moving fast. And I can’t help but thinking of him proposing to her soon since they already knew each other so well. No, I don’t believe she ever cheated or started this with him while we were together.
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?
In this beautifully written essay, Dr. Braucher compellingly argues that when we lose a lover and a loving relationships, we also part with an important part of ourselves. In order to stay connected to that loved and loving aspect of who we are, many of us maintain emotional bonds to our ex-lovers through memory.
To truly win him back you are going to have to win him over emotionally, intellectually and physically. Think about the things in those areas that you know he likes. Try to imagine what you have to offer as he would. Get inside his head a little and give him some of the flavor you know he craves and loves. You know him, use that inside knowledge as a tool.
Know when it’s not working. If you’d been back with your ex for a while and something just isn’t right, then it may be true that you did break up for a good reason, after all. Some couples thrive on the drama of breaking up and getting back together, but there’s usually a reason why two people can’t stay together, and it’s that they just aren’t right for each other. If the same problems are creeping up again, or you or your ex just aren’t happy, then it may be time to take the relationship off life support.
What a GREAT article! You are so incredibly right! Me and my ex-boyfriend were together for almost 7 years and then broke up because we weren’t making each other happy anymore. We have survived so many things together though: I have been anorexic for a long period of time, which he helped me pull through; we had a long distance-relationship for almost 2 years because I was loving in China, which we survived, I had a sport-addiction after my anorexia, which we also pulled througj together (don’t get me wrong, it was everything but pretty – it was a very rocky road) and we survived a history of cheating, where he cheated on me when I was living in China because he couldn’t deal with an anorexic-living-on-the-other-side-of-the-globe girlfriend anymore (which I kind of get). Anyways, we’ve been through so much but we never stopped loving eachother and we’ve had an incredibly passionate relationship, probably because it was such a rocky road. We had an incredible physical and emotional connection but once real life started (9 to 5 job, looking for a house, starting to take life seriously) we fell apart. We both realised we were stuck in a life we didn’t want. He needed freedom which I had trouble giving him because of the fear that I would lose him again (cheating). I felt that he was unhappy and whenever he would go out and party, I was afraid that history would repeat itself and he would leave me. The more I stressed out about this, the more freedom he would demand, up to the point that we would end up in huge fights, screaming and crying. I feel like I’ve gone through an amazing growth, so I’m grateful that it happened but I do miss him. It’s been 6 months now since we broke up and I still feel like he’s me soulmate. I have taken the initiative multiple times to cut contact and he always ends up being the one contacting me to tell me how much he thinks about me and misses me, how he feels like he’s just working towards us getting back together, dreaming about marrying one day and having a baby girl but still he doesn’t want to get back together now because he doesn’t want to rush things and fall back in to something without being 100% sure this time that it is what he really wants, a 100% sure that it will work this time around. Which I get, because we broke up exactly because we both needed to figure out what we want from life independently, without having one clouding the judgement of the other. It’s hard because I’m so afraid I will lose him in the process but I guess that I just need to have faith in the saying that “if it is meant to be, it’ll happen”. Up until that time, I need to let go and focus on myself. Which is why I’m going to write down the questioms you mention in the article and read them to myself every day, to figure out what I really want. Do I want to get back together with someone who has that big a need of being free (going out a much as he wants, going on holidays by himself, …). Can I fully trust him again? And then there is then issue of his family, who he is really close to, who (I think) think I’m not good for him – anorexia/ long-distance/ rocky relationship. Do I want to have to deal with that again? This article is the first one that really made me think. Not in terms of “how do I get him back” but in terms of “what do I need and want”. Thank you so SO much! You’re an inspiration ?

Hi Ryan, dude where are you? I really need your help. I’m really trying to not a mistake here man. It’s been maybe half a month since the NC.. it’s been working like a charm.. couples days ago my ex sees me at work and days I looked good and like I’ve changed..also that I was happy. She text me that same day saying how much she missed my presence in her life, how she missed her best friend. I didn’t respond and then she text me a photo saying remember the good times.. also said she was going thru her phone deleting pics of us and didn’t know which to keep. I then replied I miss you too. We started chatting back in forth and remembering all the good things. She texted me all night. Then the next day says she loves me and misses.. I tell her too. We talked a lot about how much we loved one another. Don’t know if that was a right move ..yesterday she sends me a message at work that was a song. “Baby while were young , let’s do what we want, I want you, you’re mine and I don’t care who’s know it, I’m down for you” just a few things she sent me! I’m confused because after work I waited to talk with her but she ran out quickly and I’m sure when went to meet up with someone else. She didn’t go home last night. She also didn’t text me anymore.. so confusing what’s going on.. not sure what to do or expect! Please help dude! I really want her back and I can’t tell if I messed up the NC rule. She definitely has been seeing someone else lately. Please write me back soon.. she wants to me up tonight to go eat. Don’t know if I should go
That said, you need to reflect on your actual motives and reasons for wanting him back. Your reason should not just be because you are lonely or sad or because you are single. Also, missing him does not necessarily mean that you should immediately take the necessary action to get him back.
This is such a powerful article, I agree to everything written out in this article. My fiance and I have been on & off for last 2 yrs. We went through an awful breakup 8 months ago and that’s when I learned about LOA. I kept my faith in the process and just like that 2 months after the breakup, I manifested him back. I did change my ways and turned things around 180 degrees in my favor. We even had a pre-engagement ceremony in July and things couldn’t be any more perfect EXCEPT the fights/issues came back. As of two weeks ago I sensed a lot of negative energy and as a result we got into a fight (really bad one) last weekend (Halloween), while we were in the middle of planning our wedding next year. Sure enough I’m in the same spot at 8 mos ago, he has shut me out as always, no contact, no response nothing. Our wedding outfits are being built and our friends and family are super excited about us. I am hurt obviously and there is that slight fear that what if he calls off teh wedding? But like the article said don’t let your fears pave your destiny!
Do stuff. Be active. When you have things to do (watching TV doesn’t count), you clear your mind and just don’t have the time to think about your ex. Be busy, get a hobby, work on your career, and catch up with old friends.
And take my word on it – sitting there with your ice-cream tub, box of Kleenex, and some really sappy music playing in the background isn’t going to get him back. Nor is scouring the Internet for ‘how to get my ex-boyfriend back,’ or ‘Can I get my ex-boyfriend back,’ or even ‘tips to get my ex-boyfriend fast!’
It was Alexander Graham Bell who once said, “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
In a later email, Peter wrote similarly, “I am overwhelmed today with feelings of loneliness and, yes, anger. I don’t want to feel this way and perhaps tomorrow I will feel differently, but I don’t really know how much more of this I can take.
It’s more than likely that your closest friends all know that you and your boyfriend have split. If they are really good friends, they’ll want to spend time with you, doing fun things so you can begin to feel better and — hey, let’s face it — heal. Go ahead and call a friend. Go to the movies. Just avoid the rom-coms or chick flicks. Go bowling and have fun.
I don’t want to loose him, he is the one I know I want to grow old with…he isn’t always the easiest person, can be obnoxious at times and a bit bossy ,but I love him for who he is… please help…I don’t know what I can do..if anything. I would do anything. Please.
