After your boyfriend dumps you, you can’t stick around and ‘be there’ for him. Some guys will try to guilt you into staying friends after the break, citing all sorts of reasons the two of you can somehow make it work. The reality is this: the longer you stay around your ex’s life after he breaks up with you, the deeper you’re digging yourself into the Friendship Zone. Nothing’s harder to do than get back together with an ex boyfriend whom you’ve already become friends with. Steer clear for a while, if you want him back.

Omg I’ve been doing everything the wrong way. I moved out of m bf’s after we got in big argument cause I got home from work late. When I was actually at my therapist office asking for advice how to communicate better with my ex. Long story short, he got mad cause I deleted text messages that day. Ever since moving out he has “trust issue” so it’s been up and down. This is the longest we’ve gone without communicating or hanging out. I feel like he feels he has me so secure. I also have the messages he got so mad that i deleted i tried to show them to him but he won’t see them, I think he knows he over reacted and doesn’t want to see he was wrong. Sometimes i feel like just sending him the messages.. should i?

Getting back together with your ex-boyfriend can be a challenge. You first need to spend some time reflecting on the relationship and all the events leading up to the breakup. What was your part in it? Taking the time to understand what went wrong will help you to avoid the same mistakes in the future.

Make him jealous on social media. Without being too obvious, post some photos of you having a great time with your friends, you at the beach, or even you hanging out with a few guys. This will make your ex remember how great you look and feel sad that he doesn’t hang out with you anymore. Don’t post anything too often — just once or twice a week to remind him of how amazing you are.

The first week of Christmas he was mad at me because he was thinking at the past again (not one time but several times) But i thought he would accept the past.. And that he knows i am not that person anymore. But then on 26th of December he broke up.. We didn’t talk till 2th of January and i begged and cried then but it was over i guess.. He said he couldn’t handle it anymore and then he blocked me on Whatsapp and Facebook and then school began and we didn’t talk for all.. (He is my classmate)

Understand the breakup. What did each of you do to contribute to the breakup? Most relationship troubles do not crop up unexpectedly, but build up over time. The odds are good that it wasn’t a one-sided problem and that there were signs that it was coming. Take some time and do some soul searching before you attempt to get your ex back. You want to make sure you are not wasting your time or energy on something futile.

well i broke up with my ex month ago, actually we dated only for 2 months , but we’ve been friend since a long time ,i really liked him and he did too during that time we were so cute together and i knew that we’ll become a couple somehow! so when we did ,alot of things changed, i was doing my best to make this relationship works ,he was so freaking cold and also shy(actually thats his personnality ) he was not romantic at all we kept talking just like before! we were like a fcebook couple ,we didnt talk by phone or even met ! he said lets make things go slowly and not to hurry and give him the time to change, i said okay so many times cuz i really want to build a good relation with him (he’s my first bf and im 23btw) anyway last month i got really angry cuz he didnt even talk for day so we made an end to it ! the problem is , he said lets get back to the old us , we were cute back then ! i said i will try , anyway i really cant get over him actually he keeps talking to me and asking what i’m doing like once a week ..but everytime i open the facebook all i think about is him , i keep saying he’ll talk to me right now i just can get over the good talk we had ! as much as i hated staying in that relation with him but i cant just move on like that ,i liked him somehow! i dont want to loose him as a friend or block him like many couples do! hope i’ll get over him soon

Proof It Works: When Heather Andrews, an attorney from Leawood, KS, had yet another horrible fight with her boyfriend, she vowed not to break down and call him, which was how they’d reunited in the past. “I knew that to stay single, I had to stay off the phone,” she says. “So I put notes by my phones both at work and home with reminders of truly awful things he’d done or said. Whenever I felt the urge to call him, I was reminded of all the reasons I chose to get out of the relationship. It worked wonders!”

Sara you’ve hit the nail on the head! I too am going through the process in an almost identical way. There was no hate, no wrongdoing, just apparent fear on her part. I respect and appreciate her choice to bow out before moving in with one another and attempting to move forward but the pain is there all the same. How do you get over someone who loves you so dearly as you do them? I’ve never doubted her love and she’s never doubted mine. I never knew myself to be such a hopeless romantic until meeting her (she has been by first relationship and we met when I was 28!). Yet, I cannot stop hoping for a happy ending. I believe the sentence that hit me hardest in this passage was having to realize that “love is not enough.”

Mean it. Don’t just pretend to be happy, but actually feel it. You may be sad you are broken up, but focus on other things. Don’t stop working, exercising, going out with your friends, or doing things that you enjoy. Instead, do all that and more. Take up a new hobby or do something you’ve never done before.

I understand it can be hard if you have to see your ex at work on a daily basis, however just proceed normally with your life as you normally would and avoid her unless necessary. It’s unavoidable to have to come into contact and continue to talk to her about work related topics, but since she is acting dry, do not engage in any small talk beyond that.

My ex broke up with me 2-3months ago… We still talk & he says he still loves me. Idk if i should believe him. He hurt me real bad. I found out he was telling one of my friends that e loves her too. He changed alot. I love him alot even tho all he does is hurt me. I want him back but i just dont know how to get him back….

Dating again to re-kindle the spark immediately after the breakup doesn’t usually work well, because not enough time has passed since then for real changes to have been made for fresh feelings to develop. Additionally, old habits would still remain, and it could easily turn into a situation where you face all the problems of a relationship, but not the full benefits of it since you guys are only ‘dating’. I suggest taking some time off to actually focus on yourself since he is doing the same, and gauge the situation again later on.

That’s good Emily, initiate No Contact first and give both parties some space to let go of any negative emotions or thoughts. He may very well be serious about the possibility of working out, but that’s definitely not something that can be achieved right now.

Take it one step at a time. A break up is not an easy thing to get through. But always remember why you break up with your ex in the 1st place and accept it. Then try to move on knowing that you can do better.

The worse thing you can do is to drink alcohol to forget him. You’ll end up hooking up with some idiot in a club that you’ll never want to see again, the next day you’ll just feel depressed. Pull yourself together! You don’t need alcohol to get over your ex boyfriend. That’s what weak people do. Are you weak? Of course not.

While you do not want to change who you are in order to get your ex back (because eventually they would leave again, since the real you has to return at some point), it is always helpful to be the best you can be. Your ex was attracted to you and you can try to regain that attraction.

I recently met an awesome guy & finally convinced that i should b moving on from a breakup I just cant figure out how. but now i came across this article, im starting 2think twice. should i even try to get back w/ my ex? im torn! 🙁

By having a new haircut along with new hair color, ladies can dramatically improve their looks. Make sure you get a look that can make any man fall in love with you and make your ex boyfriend crawling back to you.

The point isn’t just that you get your ex back, but that you KEEP him. Often folks just have sex again, once or twice, but things don’t work out and they end up breaking up again. So don’t take anything for granted. Make sure he has the best night of his life when you make up, but after that don’t drop into your “old” relationship with your ex, instead – create something new.

Hey 2 months ago I said my ex broke up with me because of long distance and I was moving back to her hometown because I wanted to move there for a job offer and you told me keep doing no contact until you arrive there. I just moved here 2 days ago and she keeps liking my posts on social media even the one where I took a pic of the back yard of my house and said a paragraph about that j moved here and I’m blessed. She saw that post but hasn’t messeged me or anything shes not dating anyone. What should I do I texted her 2 months ago but she seemed uninterested but she still sees my stuff??

Once you get older, and have to financially and emotionally support another person, dealing with all the shit that life throws at you both, the bad as well as the good, sticking by each others’ sides without bailing for what might seem like greener pastures, that’s when you know its love.

Get dressed, put on makeup and comb your hair. Now, grab your purse and leave your apartment. This is probably pretty difficult, but it’s necessary. Staying busy in the aftermath of a breakup gives you less time to obsess over him. Remember, you had a life before him, and you can have one after him, according to the Marie Claire website.

When I got home I reflected on how much fun that I had actually had and that this was the happiest I had been since the breakup. I realized that wow, I really don’t need him to have a good time. That’s when I had completely let go of him.

What rubbish! In this article it says your ex-boyfriend needs space to realise he made a mistake and then he will contact you and he’ll be feeling lonely and blah, blah, blah. It’s giving girls the impression that they need to wait around if guys break up with them and giving them false hope that a guy will contact them. Depending on how long you were seeing the guy. Girls please don’t wait around for your ex to call you back in the hope that he feels lonely like this article suggests. Go out, have fun, meet new people. If the guy calls you back then great. Maybe you can work out the issues, but don’t go putting all your hopes up that he will.
