Basically, the no contact period should be as long as it takes you to get yourself together and feel great about your life without your ex. In my experience, it can take up to 30 days. However, in extreme cases, it could range from anywhere from 2 months to 6 months.

You may hear from mutual friends that he called you a bad name/s or you may get the feeling that he hates you or wants nothing to do with you. Don’t worry, he is emotional and doesn’t mean it. Besides, after 30 days he will change his tune.

Thanks to Amanda, i try it and it works as mad, my Ex is back now, i am hoping we get married by December according to the way Scott keep saying it often that we have to get married and bare kids…. Dr odoma is my best experience this Year!!!!

She hasn’t moved on as far as I am aware but made signs that she was starting to get used to being “single” Therefore I consider this point in time the final attempt to salvage. I have dug deep and think she is worth it but want to avoid a repeat. She Will not firmly say it is over and avoids all discussion and attempts to get third party assistance or support. She still states she did nothing wrong. I think there could be undiagnosed mental health issues as the theme throughout the relationship has been there, just not quite right.

Yes, there are certain rules even for your mini date/meet up or whatever you want to call it. As stated above, you want to keep this meet up as casual as possible. Don’t plan to meet over a nice dinner. I suggest getting coffee at Starbucks with chairs and couches where the two of you can just sit and talk. Another great idea would be to meet up at a park and go for a walk together. Honestly, the dates I have enjoyed the most wasn’t anything super romantic it was just when I was enjoying the company of someone else and walking around.

I cheated on my bf two years ago when we first started dating and he forgave me and said he moved on. a year later we got a little shaky and I got vulnerable and did it again. again, he forgave me and moved on. we have been a super happy couple up until 3 weeks ago, when I made a small mistake of posting an explicit picture on Tumblr. He got angry with me and I got it removed before people reposted it so that it wasn’t floating around anywhere out there. He forgave me again and said that he was staying with me because he loved me so much. I am also going to Cali for college and he was scared I would cheat on him there but I told him that I changed my ways and I showed him all the ways I had and proved myself and it seemed like he was gaining my trust back, but this Tuesday he dumped me and said that he couldnt go on in life thinking about those things bc not a day passed that he didn’t. and went on about how bad I hurt him. I understand but why hold something against me from so long ago that I know I wouldn’t do again because I changed. as I am a senior and so is he, he is in my same classes. all of them. he treats me like I am the plague and I know by contacting him all the time I’m making things worse. he tells me we will never get back together and to just accept that and move on, but moving on for me is hard. for him he was over it the next day. said it didn’t hurt him at all to dump me and that he’s not in pain anymore now that we aren’t together. but he said that sometimes he thinks about us and is reminded, it just doesn’t make him miss me or bother him. I asked if he cared about me or loved me anymore and he just says no. part of me thinks it’s all to cover up his feelings about the break up so he’s putting up a shield. like maybe he thinks that if he’s mean to me that I’ll move on bc I think he might be scared that he will give into me and get back together. but idk if he’s hurt it truly forgot the whole 2 and a half years we have spent together. I don’t feel like you could just get over it in a day. and just turn your feelings off. in very confused. when he’s not with his friends he seems a little.. sad maybe. idk how to describe it. I need help.

Alright, so the biggest thing I want you to focus on for the no contact period is the fact that you are using this month to become the best version of yourself that you have ever been. There is a 100% chance, especially if you are ignoring him, that your ex is going to check up on you during this period and instead of sulking around feeling sorry for yourself he is going to see a strong, sexy, fun-having woman!

Wow that was a lot huh? I mean, we haven’t even started contacting our exes yet have we? Well, right now is when we begin that step. Are you excited? Alright, there is a lot of debate about this step. Every expert (myself included) seems to have a different opinion on the method you should use for contacting an ex. Some recommend writing a get your boyfriend back letter, some say you should give them a call and some even say you should text. So, what is the best method?

It would do you better to walk away from this since he has already prioritized another female over you and has even expressed his disinterest, which might have been caused by the loss of spark or interest after so many years.

Peter and Paulette have agreed that they need still more time before they make a final split-up or re-unite decision.  Paulette is wary of false hope.  She wants to be certain that she can trust that Peter’s changes will hold, and hers as well.  

It is because our emotions are the ones guiding us when we are in relationships, and if you would like to know for sure whether your ex will come back to you or not, you need to use only your emotional intelligence.

After being together for just shy of 7 years my boyfriend decided to end our relationship. I knew things hadn’t been right for a couple of weeks leading up to this, he had become pretty distant, wasn’t showing me any affection but we weren’t arguing and everything else in the relationship was good. I eventually confronted him, and we had a conversation that lead to him admitting that whilst he still loved me his feelings towards me had changed and he needed his own space to work on himself. I moved out utterly heartbroken as I couldn’t believe that after 7 years it would be that easy to end everything!

He finished the exams but not writing anymore… I tried to text him, but he acted cold and careless, he also stopped to send or reply on snaps. I don’t want to push him but also don’t know what should I do? In April I am visiting in his town, but haven’t told him about it as he acts like an ice-prince. Any advice what should I do now? I don’t want to seem desperate and needy in front of him…

You first have to understand if him saying that you’re unable to focus on your career is a legitimate worry he has or if it’s an excuse to end things. That would determine if you should contact him, because if it’s a real concern he has, and you are able to convince him that you can stay focused and still be with him, then you should try to fix things.

I have foung your website very useful. I am approaching the end of NC that is at the same time as Xmas and my ex’a b-day and also the start of a 2-3 week holiday he is spending with his family he barely sees the whole year.

My name is Kevin, and I am here to help you through this painful breakup and hopefully get your ex back. I say hopefully because I can’t guarantee you that you will get your ex back. I can, however, guarantee that if you follow this plan, your chances of getting your ex back will increase significantly.

First things first, you are going to become the sexiest version of yourself that the world has ever seen. Let’s say you and I were dating and we had a fight and broke up (I know I am a horrible boyfriend ? .) Anyways, after a month of you basically freezing me out (no contact) I happen to bump into you at a Starbucks or somewhere where we both frequented. The first thought I have of our encounter will be based on the choices that you made during the 30 day no contact period. If you sat around feeling sorry for yourself and ate ice cream on the couch all day I will probably think “she looks terrible.” However, if you spent that no contact time working on yourself physically and mentally I am probably going to think “WOW! She is even more beautiful than I remember.”
