A lot of times, your ex-girlfriend may have broken up with you because she does not feel a connection with you anymore. This is usually the case when you were together for a very long time (more than a year).

There are all sorts of people out there today, and you need to make sure that you are never setting yourself up to be with someone who is using you in any way. You want to have a relationship with someone who has intentions of working with you as a team and will love you unconditionally for who you are.

My question is, do you see a tactic for me to either get back with her on a initiaöly long distance basis until i cssn move back (which is what i would do in any case, great job offer) or can i stretch that phase of reconnecting to that point without friendzoning myself for life?

He stayed at my house after sex saying he cant get home that late so we were sleeping together. Then stayed for the weekend, cooked for me and left his stuff at me saying he dont want to bring it again. Then started to repair my boiler, ordered stuff and collected from the shop. I was terrified what he wants. After my marriage I lived alone with 2 kids and I was happy: I could decide about my things alone and it was like a fresh air after 20 year long marriage even if it was hard sometimes to arrange everything alone eg. moving, kids illness, arranging school for kids, repairing things, normal household duties, paying bills and also I had a fulltime job. But I felt happy and independent. But I was almost like a male and I have not sex with anyone. But after 2 years I started feeling unwell physically and menthally. I thought it was because of lack of sex. But since I did not want to lose my independence, I decided on this friends with benefits type of thing. This is the story behind it.

Step 2 of this Guide is called YOU simply because it is all about you.  This is the part where you can undo all the damage you might have already done by making the mistakes mentioned in Step 1. Even if you didn’t make any of those mistakes, you still MUST follow this step, because this is the most crucial step in getting back together.

It also can give you an opportunity to transform a part of you that is too dependent on him. This is the time to connect with your self-sufficiency, and your ability to make yourself happy. Even though you’re not talking to him, you’re connected to him and he will feel it.

It can be difficult to really understand yourself when you’ve been in a long-term relationship. Your significant other becomes a huge part of your life, to the point where going on without him feels empty in comparison.

My ex cheated on me and broke up with me 3 days ago. He told me when breaking up that I was the best girlfriend he’s had and probably will have. We only dated for a few month and saw each other often. I do love him, as we were good together and am prepared to forgive the cheating. I was clingy and needy at the moment of breakup but then we said bye via text that day and I’ve not messaged since. We work near each other so there’s chance we will see each other during no contact. How do I deal with that?

Looking at your previous relationship will give you some clues about where crisis start occurring in your relationship. You will find out what steps needs to be taken to stop committing same mistakes again and again.

I would stop being the one to continue reaching out. Take things slow and do not give him 100% until you have the title of the relationship again. Be positive, and show him confidence. Possibly take a while to reply to his text just like he does to you. If you would like tailored advice I highly encourage you to reach out to we can give you a tailored action plan to your situation. https://www.withmyexagain.com/coaching/

I’m really missing her and don’t know if i should ever get in touch with her .. its been 14 days… Should I try to get in touch soon and have a proper mature discussion about us breaking up? It just bothers me so much how we had something so good and it just crashed and burned. For some reason I keep thinking we should try again in the future as we do have a deep bond and according to 2 mutual friends, she is battling through some depression which caused her to reach out to her ex whenever she felt insecure with us doing distance. Does NOT justify it.. but I feel sorry for her in that she was battling that stuff…

Try to avoid seeing him at all, even when you’re hanging out with mutual friends. If you do catch yourselves at the same party, you don’t have to be rude to him, but you shouldn’t spend too much time talking to him.

When you cut your ex girlfriend out of your life; you will start seeing things clearly and feel better about yourself. You will realize that you can live without your ex and life is not so bad after all.

After breaking up, I still worked at the same food court as my ex for 4+ months. Considering the state I was in, it would have been best if I just quit right away. I realize now that even though I tried to act normal and happy, I was miserable and pitiful and if anyone saw through me, it was definitely my ex. I realize now that even though I only texted her about 5 instances within this year, she found them annoying not so much because of what I texted but her PERCEPTION of me that I portrayed during work. She knew I was still not over her. The thought of me is very unpleasant for her.

Sorry because I am a bit tiring. I have doubts about “no contact rule” in my case. In my understanding your theory is based on the fact that there were happy moments in the relationship and after a while people tend to remember the good memories, the overall picture and forget about the problems (eg. clinginess, small debates), the small negative details. My relationship with this man though was about great sex and awful debates right afterwards (since I was fighting against my own feelings), therefore the overall picture is not good. There were no happy moments in this relationship with the exception of sex. Basically, I can say only the sexual attraction kept it alive at all for 3 months. And I am aware that sexual attraction can fade away fast so what remains is the overall negative picture. Am I not right?

Do not make the letter about you. It is not about what you want. It is not about your feelings. It is not even about what you have done wrong. The only way to regain your wife’s trust is to communicate to her your understanding of her pain.

It is good to avoid talking about previous relationship and don’t put blame of previous breakup on your ex girlfriend. This will raise her defense level and it may be possible your meet up ends up on arguments and disagreements that you never want.

Look at it like this, every relationship has problems, fights, and disagreements. But if you two broke up, then there was something very wrong with your relationship. You need to analyze what went wrong and realize whether or not it’s a good idea to get back together.

I’m on day 31 of no contact. You told me to do 45 day no contact. I was on holiday: I’m back now and I feel extra worse, the worst ever. I miss him so much but I feel he’s still bitter and the no contact work. Can you please help? Obv after 45 days I have to do the text message but how do I do it if I’ve already sent a no contact message last month after 26 days of no contact? What do I say? And what if he doesn’t reply. Please help. Why am I feeling emotional worse? And he hasn’t even contacted me

It’s important for him to feel really good about spending time with you again… especially if things ended badly between you. The contrast between how things felt at the end of your relationship and how things feel now is key in getting back together with him.

I don’t think moving there is a good idea, unless it’s good for your career. Otherwise, you are just setting yourself up for heartbreak. Imagine how you’d feel if you moved all the way over there for him and he still rejects you. A better idea will be to enjoy your life while he is there and contact him once he returns. If it’s meant to be, it will be.

Let her know that you understand what it is like to walk in her shoes as one who feels hurt, ie: “Honey, you must feel conned. Before we were married I communicated to you that I would cherish you for the rest of our lives. But since the first week, I know I sent you the message that you weren’t important to me. Whenever you wanted to do __________ together, I would never do it. Whenever you wanted to go with me to ___________ I wouldn’t go. By choosing my own comfort and convenience over yours I have left you feeling that you weren’t important to me, and I was a fool to send you that message. You deserve more than that.”      

A Christian’s new nature, if the heart is not too far hardened, will respond to words of Truth, ie: spoken by a friend, a seminar tape, a sermon, a radio preacher, a counselor, etc. (These words are not often received when spoken by the offender.)

Chances are that you are here because you are still very much in love with your ex boyfriend. If this is the case you will likely be wondering how to make him want you back. When you listen to your friend at this time they will be telling you to get over him and move on with your life. This is a lot easier said than done and not the advice that you want to hear right now. If you really do believe that he is the right person for you, then you will have to do some work and not be dissuaded by well meaning friends. If you are determined that this is what you want to do, you will have to have a good plan. With the help of the experts, you will learn how to make him want you back again and even make his love for you stronger than it was before. You have to be proactive though, so let’s get started.

A divorce or a separation can be really hard on a child. If there is a chance of getting back together and giving your relationship another chance, then you should do it. It’s worth a try. However, if you were in an abusive or toxic relationship, then separation is much better than being together. Nothing is worse for a child than to grow up in a toxic environment.

A lot of times this can be happening but you won’t have any clue. Men aren’t the best communicators especially when it comes to breaking bad news. The last thing they want is to hurt you so they will just break up with you and give you some general reason. Luckily again this can be addressed!

Self-esteem is about believing that you are a person of worth and that you are adequate the way you are. When it comes to relationships, it is important that you feel complete and whole as an individual rather than looking for someone else to complete you or make your life worthwhile.[9]

You also never know how you’ll feel once you get back into a relationship. “Every day your feelings about the situation could change,” says Shield. The only way you’ll be able to acknowledge those feelings, good or bad, is by slowly easing back into coupledom with your ex.

Thank you for your share. Getting back with an ex after years apart is possible, but it requires balance. You can show her you care for her, but don’t put her on a pedestal. If you do that, she’ll feel no need or sense of urgency to get back together, as she’ll become the power holder between you two. If you need more in depth advice, I invite you to book a session with me. I can help you figure this out.

7 days ago he broke up with me. Reason for breaking up was that he doesn’t have time for me, that he isn’t sure what he wants, maybe it’s other girls, but he has everything he wants with me, so he needs time to think. But I think that he has someone else now.

Thank you Ryan. There was a discussion, when I was expressing worries about how negative she sounded and her repeating how bad she is which I strongly disagreed with, and a discussion about where to live together that she started, which was all strange. I asked her what made her feel inadequate and she repeated that it’s just how a relationship makes her feel, and that she can’t have this discussion, and basically broke contact. Very sudden, very extreme, and very bizarre and I’m left with questions and I feel very confused. I asked her if this is about someone else, she strongly denied it, and I hope she speaks the truth, because I trusted her completely, and this would be a major disappointment in her and in people in general…I wish she could tell me what this is really about.

Nevertheless, if category B fits your situation, then you have a really great chance of getting your ex back so long as you play your cards right from here. Move onto the next step and I will help you and show you how to get your girl back!
