Most people like to jump from 1st to 4th step (initiating contact with ex) without fixing the problems and then they either end up losing their chance of getting ex or their relationship wouldn’t last long enough.

And what’s more is that they were shocked to discover how simple the whole process was once they understood the concept behind it (we’ll get to that in a second). But heed this word of warning: she’s not going to wait around forever. If you continue to act this way she’ll soon move on to somebody else.

Add to your life experience. Take care of yourself by pursuing the experiences you’ve always wanted to have. Aside from obvious (and expensive) activities like road trips and skydiving, don’t forget to indulge the more mundane things, as well: visiting every park in the city, seeing what happens to a penny left on the railroad tracks, singing karaoke, finding the oldest headstone in the local cemetery.

If you still have any of the items that she gave you as gifts before, such as a jewelry, then make it a point to wear it when you’re planning to meet up. Such will send a clear signal that you are still not over her and you want her to be back in your life.

Well…I was in a long distance relationship. My ex and I were together for about a year, but in those twelve months we broke up about twelve times. But the relationship ending horribly was my fault, I told her I’d come see her and that I’d pay for her to get here to see me sometime, but I was too scared of what she’d think of me..among other personal things. All I want is a family with her because honestly she is perfect for me and I…was perfect for her. I might as well be honest, gaming took over my life and because of that I hardly ever go out or do anything. It also made me angry all the time and now I’m trying to change everything. I cry day in day out thinking that I’ll never have a family with the girl I love, she still loves me but isn’t ready to be with me and I’m not ready either but I’m willing to change for myself and for her. Most people would say that I’m too young to be thinking about having a family and whatever but it’s my life. Please if you can, help me figure out what I’m doing wrong and what I need to do. I’m going to die young so I have to live fast, this is true, I’m not attention seeking, I’m not like that. But anyway I really need to change and get her back, I want a life. Please help.

I am a big fan of texting because you can think through every single word before you hit that “send” button. Of course, the trick when it comes to texting is getting her to respond but more on that later.

The unwritten laws of the ‘social food chain’ dictate that inferior people seek approval from superior ones, and not the other way around. Women naturally know this, and by trying to get your girl to like you more (approval seeking) using ‘nice’ behavior, you made her feel like she’s superior to you.

…category B here contains the exact opposite behaviors of Category A. In Category A, those behaviors are try hard (too hard). But here in B, these are the behaviors of a guy who hasn’t given enough, so the girl doesn’t consider this guy as having long-term potential either.

Be proud of yourself. Look around your life – you’ve got a full schedule, interesting hobbies, good friends, and maybe even a long-term project to work on. You’ve taken time to keep yourself balanced and work out your emotions, and you’ve acted firmly but ethically in dealing with the ties that bound you and your ex-girlfriend together. In short, you’ve taken a jumbled pile of feelings, thoughts, and hopes, and built yourself something beautiful with it. Be proud.

Even being in a good facility (and finally having health insurance), the early days of my my recent hospitalization can only be described as dehumanizing. I was stripped of my phone, my belongings, and all my clothes, put in a thin hospital gown, and left in a cold, harshly lit room, given no clear answers by the nurses who took my blood, their faces marked by various shades of pity and concern. I was able to get my diary back and at least put my thoughts, however jumbled, onto paper. I wrote, in part, “How did I end up here again? I feel like I’m being punished asking for help. They handle me here like I’m made of glass, like I’m a child unaware of how the world works. But I see just fine.” The last statement isn’t entirely true. I was suicidal and deeply depressed, after all. In reading my diary passage, I am reminded that even the most empathetic filmmakers have yet to understand that living in the world with mental illness, if you have a modicum of self-awareness and high functionality, is a constant negotiation of self. Being in the hospital heightens this truth — any darkly wry joke could be misinterpreted as a cry for help, and so much of life inside a hospital is out of your control considering there are bed checks every 15 minutes. Being a black woman, I’ve learned, compounds these issues given that our lives are already heavily circumscribed and our humanity is rarely acknowledged in all its complexity.

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.

Notice how I didn’t specify if this friend was a male or female. You just planted a seed of doubt in your ex boyfriends head and now he is going to wonder if you saw a romantic movie with a friend or with a date.

I met a girl in my work place and we became good friends…she had a bf from college but she was not in good terms with him I mean he had a ex gf and he was nbreaking u. With her and she. Was not sure of him..I asked her to breakup rather than taking it this far..with no intention of us being committed.. Later we became close and got into a relationship known only to my friends and her ex.. After 8-9 months of things going peaceful it started to take a violent turn she still used to talk to her ex sometimes bt later it was on a regular basis now she brokeup with me and is back wit. Him… I am shattered what to do????

Although you say you don’t want a serious relationship and only want a friends with benefit type of thing, it seems to me that your emotions say otherwise, or else you wouldn’t really mind or care if he was talking to others or had walls since it should not matter. I think that you need to be more aware as well if you’re trying to push someone away, as sometimes we do that in the form of picking fights or faults with our partner. I suggest just focusing on yourself first to work on whatever issues you may have and build yourself back up before considering any relationship.

Having been in a relationship for four years gave us the kind of closeness that other roommates couldn’t possibly have. There are no labels on the food in our fridge. We buy everything together, keeping an unofficial tally of who owes whom, and eat dinner together like a family. When laundry needs to be done, Katie does it (yes, she even washes my underwear) because she’s not about to stick her hand in the sink to pull out food that’s gotten trapped or wash congealed cheese out of a pot, which makes the dishes my domain. When I need someone to rub my feet after a long day of shopping in the city (usually with Katie by my side), she’s got me covered there, too.

A while back I was dating someone and it always seemed that we would fight over the silliest things. Now, I like to think that I am generally a calm person but for whatever reason my girlfriend and I would always fight. So, I went to the most trusted of friends for advice, my dad. He explained to me that a relationship is like a bank account. Every time you have a good experience or something of that nature you are putting money into the account. However, every time you have an argument or a fight you are taking money out of the account. The key thing here is to have more green deposits than red withdrawals in your relationship bank account.
