Write in a journal- Sometimes your mind is constantly racing with thoughts about your ex boyfriend and since you can’t talk to him for 30 days it might be a good idea to jot your thoughts down in a journal.
So Kevin, now what? Im in a new city. She is back home. And I dont see how its going to work and I know she will tell me the exact same thing- We cant even meet for coffee given that I wont be able to see her unless I book a ticket to her city for end of August. And that seems a bit too much given that we arent even together.
Studies have shown that 90% of rebound relationships don’t work out in the long run so the odds are probably in your favor. There is no reason to start harassing him or the girl he is dating. Under no circumstances will you contact him. In fact, DO NOT CONTACT HIM OR HER. The further away from the breakup your ex gets the more nostalgic he will become about your relationship. This means he will forget the bad times and remember the good times.
Whether you are together or apart, this needs to be a dream that you would both be contempt to chase individually; but knowing full well that you will inspire and help each other to move closer to achieving this endeavor as a unit rather than on your own!
In either case, you are just going to get hurt and not get what you want; a committed relationship with your ex. If you are serious about getting your ex back, or being happy in your life, make sure you never force them for being friends or even decline their offer to do so; at least, not until you are done with step 2.

Hi! If your true intentions are to be friends, then I would reach out and express that. It’s all about approach, though, so don’t come on too strong! If you’re looking for the perfect way, I can help here. Please feel free to book a session with me. These situations are my speciality.
You already replied to the first part and then again to the second part of my situation, but I have an important update… This is LONG distance. I Have just moved to a new city and the earliest I could get back to see her would be the end of August… how should I proceed with your advice given the important fact that I have a new job for 3 years in a different city (2 hour flight apart from her). We talked about distance before we broke up and she said she wasn’t happy doing it for 3 years, and would possibly do it to start off but would want to move in… Then we had the ugly breakup I describe below. I would greatly appreciate input!! PLEASE. This is the first part, followed by your reply, and then the second part followed by your second reply.
Getting over something is tough, but reliving it over and over again isn’t at all helpful. “Sometimes, you really do need to forgive and forget,” she says. “It’s important to understand that everyone makes mistakes. It’s part of the process of growing and learning what does and doesn’t work in a relationship.”
I think you honestly need to sit down and figure out what it is you want. It looks like the crossroads here is between him, or starting a family, so it’s important to know which comes first to you, and stick to it. You wouldn’t want to regret down the road on a decision you felt wasn’t made based on thorough logic but whim of the moment and it’s too late to go back in time to change anything.
There’s a good chance your ex will reply to you. If she does; you are free to talk to her. But don’t overdo it just yet. She still might have her defenses up and if you act desperate or needy in any way; it will confirm her doubts.
If the relationship you shared with her was a meaningful one, it’s unlikely that you’ll be in the friendzone (not for long at least). Even if she wants to remain just friends, it’s something you should take as it’s already better than her ignoring your messages and gives you more room to build up a stronger bond. Some people get the shortcut of their ex instantly wanting them back, while some others would have to go through a slightly longer route of nurturing the relationship up first as a friend before trying anything more.
I recommend you to tell her that breakup was the best thing, but you realize it would be such a shame to throw away such a great friendship like this. It is important to keep a good vibe of old friends in your conversation.
I knew something was a missed but she wouldn’t admit to anything until we communicated via text. She said she felt insecure, afraid, and confused as regards my overseas studies and my lack of time spent with her. Further, she told me she’s no longer happy being in a relationship with me. A few days later, I met her up and broke up with her. She cried a lot and as I walked her back to her place, she gave me a hug and told me she wants sometime to think over the entire situation and that we should not break up at this point. I agreed to it.

Thanks for this article. I am dating my ex of 5 years after a 12 year break. He has kids from previous relationships. I am unable to have children. So far things have been going great. Dating again has been met with a few bumps. I really feel like he is truly my soulmate. We are definitely taking time to get to know each other in our adult lives after so many years.
When it comes to relationship advice and psychology of breakup then you should be careful in receiving advice because there are many clueless people who don’t know anything about relationship. After breakup your friend or family member surely gave you advice something like,
Overconfidence can lead to complacency, which is not good for any relationship. According to Anderson, in a survey published in August 1993 in the journal Law and Human Behavior, couples who had recently applied for a marriage license were asked to estimate the average rate of divorce. Almost uniformly, they accurately predicted about 50 percent. Then they were asked to estimate the chances that they would get divorced. They answered zero percent. The problem with this statistic is that, if there is no perceived risk of failure, no “work” is put into maintaining the relationship—until it’s suddenly faltering. Don’t let yourself gloss over the little things. Don’t forget to make an effort to keep your romance alive. Don’t find yourself in a situation where you realize that you could have done more…when it’s already too late.
Return to your life with passion – you are simply more than just charming. If you feel good about yourself you will see yourself outstanding in the eyes of others. Just remember don’t keep yourself alone. This trigger depression and anxiety.
It works better with guys you know in real life, but if you’re having trouble getting started then pick your favorite actor. The important part is that you do this once per day, and that you really stick with it. It might not seem like it’s doing much at first, but in reality it’s detoxing your mind consciously and unconsciously from your ex, and putting you in a much better mental state.
That’s why actively fighting your urge to obsess over him is going to serve you so well in the long run – because the more you obsess over him, the more power he has over you, and the less that you’re able to get over him.
