Even if my life ahead and the journey remains single, it’s a clear view, not a cloudy one. He was my last chance to have some semblance of a family life. (I am now 50+) It was the most painful relationship experience of my life, but I’d rather live authentically alone than living a lie just to have companionship.

My ex had consistently chased me for 6 years throughout the whole of school and after, we were always really close friends and i was always too afraid to progress further incase that friendship got ruined. Even in his one other long term relationship he admitted to still always wanting to be with me and even throughout the good times with his ex he still imagined doing those things with me instead. Then after going through a hard time with a previous ex myself and having him support me we began to get close again and eventually ended up starting a relationship. And while at first i was slightly unsure about it, it quickly became clear it was the best decision i’d ever made, he was so madly in love with me and for the first time i felt so confident that someone felt like the luckiest person alive to be with me. He absolutely adored me and treated me like a queen. 2 and a half years later, and only just coming back off a wonderful week long holiday together with his family.. out of the blue, it’s over. Seeming in a bit of a bad mood one day i asked him if he was okay or if i’d done something and got the ‘we need to talk’ text. My stomach immediately dropped and i felt sick, but didn’t want to jump to conclusions and assume the worst. He came over that evening and told me he thought things had changed and that for weeks he’d had this feeling of that ‘sometimes’ he just wants to be my friend. Sometimes?! Even though that morning he’d commented on how it was our anniversary and 2 days previously we had even been on a date night where he’d complained because i had red lipstick on meaning he couldn’t kiss me and asked me to sit next to him in the bar instead of opposite him so he could put his arm around me, not really ‘i just want to be your friend behaviour’ right?

Keep the conversation light and natural. Treat your ex like an acquaintance. Ask surface questions, not questions about who your ex is dating. If asked how you are doing, say you are doing well. Make sure not to oversell it. You don’t want your ex to think you are faking.[18]

You will make things worse for yourself if you don’t get him 100% out of your life. That means: no checking him out on Facebook, no Googling his name and no ‘accidently’ being in the same places that you know you will be able to find him. It is hard to erase someone from your life like this, but it’s something that you just have to do.

You probably enjoyed an activity or a food that your ex-boyfriend despised. Now you’re free to indulge in them, whether you like to volunteer at the animal shelter or you appreciate a good plate of sushi. Call your best friend and suggest a get-together around that activity or meal, Cosmopolitan suggests.

I just broke up with my boyfriend five days ago… I found out not only had he been cheating on me but he had a whole other relationship going on with this other woman. I’ve never been so hurt ever. I felt like a complete fool.. Anyways I struggle with facebook stalking and wanting to still be friends

OK, so that may be a bit dramatic. But that voice really is up to no good; it is the beaten down and broken-hearted part of you that simply isn’t capable of thinking clearly. And if you truly want to know how to win your ex boyfriend back, you have drown out that voice.

You’ve broken up. It’s over! Should you really be sulking in a corner while he may be meeting other girls, or moving on with his life? All of us love to be by ourselves after a break up, but you really have to convince yourself to go out or get busy. Being lonely is actually the biggest hurdle in your road to recovery and getting over your ex boyfriend.

Break ups cause grief, the process is different for everyone. I was married for 26 yrs to an emotional abuser with some violence but mostly mental abuse. The father of my two grown children and grandchildren who are my saviours. I think this marriage contributed to a feeling of low esteem which made me first reject close relationships as I was afraid of intimacy and thgt sex was the answer. I was single for 4 years just dating then I fell deeply in love with two men at differing time periods both controlling in different ways. One lasted 3 years and we are still friends after 17 yrs the last one was for 12 years. I am still broken hearted about my last love, he withheld love and let me down, typical not answering phone for days then I found out he had cheated and he just denied and denied it. Seemed to want me but would pull away if we got too close. However we were happy in each other’s company sex was fantastic and we enjoyed similar things. He never wanted to know my family and would prefer to spend vacation time with female friends and family without me. I left him 18 months ago and moved out of town new job and nearer my family. We continued to see each other long distance saw each other last 3 months ago. Mostly I initiated contact but he always responded. Says he’s missed me but does not want commitment,crazy huh when we had 12 years together (not living together tho). I still miss him still love him and don’t see that going away any time soon. I have male friends and could start dating but at 63 not sure what to do. He is 50. I just take a day at a time i go on holiday with friends. I have more happy days now than sad days but it has taken a long time to get to this point. I am very lonely at times but don’t want to get involved again at moment. I have acquired two beautiful kittens who have been life savers and I am less lonely now I have them. I have great friends and family but I don’t think I will be the same ever again. It is harder as you get older. If you are young be kind to yourself and take a chance on love again. Don’t waste years grieving accept the break up as soon as you can and move on you have your whole lives ahead of you .

I was with a guy for 5 years from being 16, I cheated on him at 16 but I was just young and stupid but we stayed together for the 5 years after this incident, we both went to uni which was the same one but he just didn’t seem to want me in his life once he started, he would never want to go out together or with his friends and it started to hurt, I found out he was talking to a someone he used to like in school online asking her to come round to his flat to make her “dinner” and this was painful after that our relationship deteriorated and we eventually broke up, but he would always blame me and hold onto when I cheated on him which by this time was 5 years prior and the majority of our relationship was after that, after breaking up we kept talking and whenever one of us was ready to try again the other wasn’t and it kept going in circles, then he said he wanted to and I was ready to try again, this was a year and a half after the break up, he said this and changed his mind and said it was due to me talking to other guys whilst we had been broken up, I then see a few days later he is in a relationship with another girl which he didn’t tell me I had to find out from my friends and this hurt, now it’s nearly 2 years after the break up and I’m still a mess about this and he doesn’t want to talk to me anymore and says it is unfair to his new girlfriend how I try to talk to him, I just can’t seem to move on and the whole time we have been broken up I haven’t and feel like I can’t, the worst part is losing your best friend, I want to be angry about it but I can’t, I just miss talking to him and hoping it would of been different, I don’t want to ruin his happiness now though but I just hate the thought that he’s fine with never talking again which makes me just feel worthless and insignificant to him now and how he obviously played me off against his new girlfriend before deciding who he wanted and after everything we had gone through to together for years, I want so bad to be over it as it’s been going on too long now but each day I’m still so upset by it and people say time heals but it’s not, 2 years of not even being together and I’m still no where near over it, how to let go of someone you still love when they don’t want you in their life at all

Now, the texting rules as mentioned in the video I linked you to, will do a lot of the work to make her WANT to hang out, and as soon as she WANTS to hang out, then arranging to meet should be very easy. I’ll talk you through what to say to set up a meet with her regardless, though.

No matter how long you’ve been apart or what the circumstances of your breakup might be, there’s always one answer to that question: you’ve got to make your ex want you back. It’s just that simple.

This is your ultimate goal – getting him to this point.

Dear! Sometimes it is really important that you tell the truth , how harsh it might be to the listener. It eventually does good to both the persons involved.If you do not want to face him, write a mail and make it absolutely clear that you are totally over him.And that you are not comfortable with him interfering in your personal life more than required.

To truly win him back you are going to have to win him over emotionally, intellectually and physically. Think about the things in those areas that you know he likes. Try to imagine what you have to offer as he would. Get inside his head a little and give him some of the flavor you know he craves and loves. You know him, use that inside knowledge as a tool.

I had 3 month long relationship with a guy from a dating site. I have trust problems because of 20 year long marriage in which I was kinda abused. So that is why decided I did not want a serious relationship, only a friend with benefit type of thing. The guy was very polite. We had only kissing on first date and it took a while for him to even ask for it. Later I told him I did not want a serious relationship but it seemed he was hoping in it. We had very strong chemistry. After we had sex he was taken to hospital. It was crazy. I started to feel something however the plan was not that. I have decided to split up with him but someway I was not able. So we were keeping in touch for 1 month then he was released. I did not trust him. First I though even hospital was lie and then I discovered he was texting with others. I tried to get closer to him but he had walls. We had fights since I felt him cold, too rational therefore I got angry towards him and we had awful fights.We split up 3x but it started again. I emphasized that it was only about sex for me but he wanted sg more serious. Once I have seen him to chat with someone else for a long time. I asked him to tell me if he had someone else and let me go since it is too painful this way to me. He told me that there was no anyone else just he did not know where he stood with me since I was working against the relationship. Basically I think I did not know what I wanted and we had walls. Ok. I asked him to start it again. He asked for time and I promised time. So he messaged me but when I wanted to reply I saw he was chatting with someone again and got angry and attacked him. I said really really mean things. He switched off phone. I was thinking I might have hurt him deliberately because I was not brave enough to start sg serious and wanted to get rid of him instinctively. Next day I said sorry. I was feeling really awful about myself. I am not an evil person. But he did not read it (or yes but it was not displayed).

I’m pretty sure I did not say to wait around for him to come back, I said, many times, to move on. I said if there is a chance for things to work out it will only happen if both of you have had time away. My advice is to just move on no matter what because if he comes back, great. And if not, at least you’ve started to move on. Waiting around is what keeps you stuck in the same place and I definitely do NOT advocate that.And good fro you not waiting around, you’re doing the best thing for yourself and I hope you continue to have that strength.
