You often heard men complaining ‘they don’t want to get nagged’ – The problem is not in nagging instead men feel their women start showing unsatisfaction of who he is and what he has to offer and that what eats away the relationship. This doesn’t mean you can’t express your true feelings. Make sure to balance your true feeling with love and admiration to keep fire in your relationship.
Just wanted to say, thanks so much.I couldn’t figure out why I was still hung up on it over four years later. But clearly I was missing whatever it was that was the “overarching emotional benefit that you got from being with them specifically.”
If you didn’t break up, you would never meet that next guy that will come along. Yes – he will come along – but only if you think positively. Open up yourself to new opportunities by looking at things from the right angle. Your heart is broken because you let it be broken. You can’t get over your ex – not because of him, but because of yourself – you do not let yourself get over him. Allow yourself to move on. It’s easier than you think.
So let go of over-thinking about the other. That’s part of what doesn’t work in relationships. Responsive is fine, Trying to guess all the time what the other person thinks or will do, that’s disaster.
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.
By considering all the factors mentioned here, you will be able to pinpoint the exact way on how to get your ex-boyfriend back when he broke up with you or even if you have lots of issues in the past.
When the string of messages, calls, and meetings keep going, gauge how it is going. See if you’d really like to rekindle the romance or it was just a mere ‘post-breakup’ urge that has long since been extinguished. A flirtationship is okay too, if you think that the signal is green. But do not create unnecessary pressure or expect it to magically be ‘like always.’ Reflect on all your interactions, meetings, and try and figure out from his responses if he really seems interested in giving it a second shot.
If you’ve done your homework correctly, you will be oozing confidence and attractiveness out of every inch of your body. And this works doubly as effective on your ex than any other person. Why? Because they were already attractive to you at one point in time. And you are not a stranger to them. You are someone familiar who looks very attractive.
Whatever your fears are I want you to face them. I want you to look fear in the eye and give him the finger (fear is definitely a guy by the way.) This is a time to get strong by facing those fears AND DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. You see, it isn’t enough to just face your fears. You need to take positive action AFTER you face it.
I am currently involved with an ex boyfriend of mine, it was about 16 years between relationships, but we have always remained good friends. We both know why the first relationship did not work and are committed to the current one. We’ve been together for about a year now, and I’m still getting to know the man that is he is now compared with my happy go lucky friend from back then.
Then, leave him be. Let him go through the 5 stages of grief – BY HIMSELF. You can not and must not entertain any attempts to contact you. This may sound cruel, but it will allow him to mentally break off the concept of him being in a relationship with you and learn to see you as a friend.
So since he wouldn’t believe me I think this is what made him go on a cheating spree. When I would leave him to try and move on I would try talking to other guys. But I loved him and kept going back to him. I would receive texts from this guy I wasn’t talking to any longer and my ex would get further upset and I would discover even more girls he would be talking to online and probably in person. So in reality I don’t how many times he cheated. All I know is that I was always loyal to him and honest.
Anyways, here’s a video I made a while back that talks about my personal experience (and success!) I had in working to get my ex back and why I was so successful. The video after my video is the course from Brad that I highly recommend as well. Thanks again for stopping by my site!
The exercise for you is to think about and compare yourself with the one you were before the relationship and the person you are now. What things have changed in this period? Think back and find the reasons that attract your boyfriend and specific reasons that pushed your boyfriend away from you.
After two years of living together me and my bf decided to have a break. I had some mental problems Which made me depressed and he was working on his projects every minute of the day. I wanted to spend time because I needed emotional support but his projects “were bigger then us”. Promising me I’m the love of his life and I needed to be happy for a while without him. “Taking a step back so we can move forward again”
Then imagine everyone liking and loving you! Imagine them wanting to be near you and talk to you and be friends with you! Imagine being surrounded by a crowd… imagine how they completely adore you! You are a star and you’re fabulous! They can’t help by admire you and be drawn to you! Thank them for giving you that attention!
Honestly thank you so much for your response. I’ve been in a heartache for so long and I want to improve my relationship with my ex boyfriend. Your perspective has really impacted my day and I can say I will take every word you’ve said for the rest of my life. Thank you.
You may feel like you are important, but you also have to convey that you are important and that your feelings have value. This is going to be very attractive to him. Show him that you are happy with yourself and make it known that you love yourself.
I decided that I needed to do what’s best for me so I began doing things that made me happy. I also realized that I didn’t need anyone to make me happy. I am the captain of my life so I needed to take charge.
Once he sees and feels this energy from you it can often lead him to rethink why the two of you are not together. You should never have to try to convince him that you should be together. He needs to be able to view you as his prize to win.
So, in the meantime while you’re going through your thirty days of no contact you will need to embrace living your life as a single person for a while. Although this may sound depressing at first, this doesn’t mean becoming a recluse.
The third thing to do to erase his power over you is simple. Take out a pen and paper and write down all the things you didn’t like about your relationship with your ex. Everything he did that annoyed you, all the things you didn’t like about the relationship, and even all the things you didn’t like about BEING in a relationship.
Wherever possible, and once you are able to do so after the painful period has passed, get back to being you, do things that make you happy and do all you can so you are living your life to the point of a radiance coming off you. Women who carry themselves in this way are very attractive to men.
My ex boyfriend broke up with me 3 and a half months ago, we were really close and he told me that he couldn’t be in a relationship right now and that he no longer wanted to continue making me unhappy. He said he has depression and cannot even make himself happy. I put a lot of pressure and nagged him a lot in the relationship because I could tell after a while that he was not ready for something serious (we got together as he was breaking up with his ex gf). I became jealous and needy and cried a lot before and after the break up. I followed your advice after a few weeks and started no contact. I then got back in touch with him and he was responding but in a very cold and distant manner, I felt at times that I was making progress but eventually my emotions got the better of me and I ended up messing it up. I tried to get him to meet up and talk to me so I could try to get closure instead but he really seems like he does not care and keeps making excuses. The problem is we work in the same office and I have to see him everyday. He has been really overly happy laughing and joking really loudly and kept telling me he was busy or asleep when he started to not reply to me. I have been really struggling to move on and then out of the blue his best friend contacted me. He said he just wanted to see how I was doing as he was with my ex and they were discussing things and his best friend asked after me to my ex. I asked him why he contacted me and he said he just wondered how I was doing and said it was a shame we didn’t get to hang out as my ex broke up with me 2 weeks after we all went away for the weekend to an event with all my exes friends and family and that was the last time I saw them all. I asked him for some advice about my ex because he wouldnt talk to me and I wanted an honest answer. His friend told me that he believes my ex has moved on and is sorry to tell me but it is better to be honest than to give false hope. I am deeply upset by this as I feel that my ex could have bothered to communicate it himself as he never said he didn’t want to be with me when I asked after we broke up, he said he didn’t know what he wanted and who knows about the future, but instead I had to hear it from his best friend. His friend asked me not to tell my ex about our conversation as he said his ex would think it was weird that he contacted me. We had a bit of a heart to heart and I admitted I was struggling to move on. I feel like I have the closure I wanted as I have been told by someone close to my ex that he is no longer interested and my ex will not speak to me about it. I really want to move on with my life now because I am devastated and I no longer want to continue to feel so heartbroken. I dont want to try to get him back anymore because I am far too emotional to follow through with the advice you give and I care too much, so I think the best choice for me now is to get over him. I really have tried so hard but nothing is working. I have to see him everyday and it is so painful, we were really close I and I genuinely believed that he wanted to be with me. I feel really hurt and confused, it felt like he switched his feelings off for me one day as a week before the breakup we were spending time together like normal and everything was fine. Since he broke up with me he has been very cold consistently, it is simply like a switch has gone off and he treats me like nothing ever happened between us like we are strangers except for being polite around the office.
Well.. I had only two shifts with him this week. Wednesday went well so far but Thursday was a disaster… There is another girl working at the grocery store as well. I know her and I know they have known each other longer time. On Thursday I saw how she got more attention and I noticed that their chemistry is so different. I felt so bad on Thursday. When he came to work, he went directly to her to talk about something and totally ignored me.. didn’t even say hello. I don’t know why on Wednesday things looked so good. Or is it my head that make things look worse than it is. But I know he was hanging all day with her after work on Wednesday (I have heard that they have spend a lot of free time together) . I have a feeling I can’t get him back… I just can’t. She is more prettier. Thursday was so awkward. I still have 6 shifts together with him. Next week only on Monday and Saturday.
