You reread every text. You relive every memory. And it all starts making sense — he never wanted love. He only wanted attention. He only wanted validation. I love the writing and the photos.

If only I knew then what I know now. When I break up with someone I ship them off to an imaginary island where they roam free and make coconut snowmen and live very happy, very celibate lives far, far away from me.
My advice is to block them both the second the status appears. Is she prettier than me? Does she have a better job? Does she have more friends? So stop comparing and start blocking, because she might be looking at your profile and thinking the same thoughts, and neither of you deserves to feel inferior. If you want to believe that they love you the most, then go with that. Hey, My boyfriend and I live together and been together for over 7 years. Do you think if he left for a different attraction, my chances are low?
He may have left for a different attraction because of the grass in greener syndrome, which he may have started to feel after being together for so long that there are 'better' fish out there. The fact that you were together with him for so long means you connected on an emotional level at the very least but physical attraction may have been lost over time, which is possibly also why he feels bad and the need to apologize.
Follow the guidelines found in this and our other articles as well on the steps and measures to winning him back. My ex and I have been together for 4 years and just broke up a little more than 1 week ago and we did not end in bad terms, despite being a mutual decision I felt like I was forced to break up with him, because I caught him lying to me and he was drifting away. After the break up I found out that he was emotionally cheating on me with one of his overseas colleague they do meet frequently since he has to fly to her country quite often, but will not be as frequent moving forward 1 month prior separating we were having huge arguments then, about commitments and settling down issues.
The week before the break up, we are still acting like a normal couple and was assuring each other that we will work on our relationship, but after his overseas business trip to his female colleague country, where I found out he spent the weekend with her and some of his other colleagues. I found out all these information from his mum that was when i found out he was lying and was talking to someone else , he called me the next day of his return and we mutually broke up over the phone. I have stopped contacting him after the break up, cause I thought it was a good time for me to do some self-reflection on myself and our relationship - me trying to understand what went wrong.
I was motivated to contact him after having no contact for 2 weeks. However, I have recently spoken to his mum again for some advice his parents loves me a lot , and she told me that he looked like he moved on not moaning at home, going out with his friends, texting his female colleague etc and has every intentions to fly over to his colleagues country just to see her.
Of course, this news upsets me because I thought I would still have a chance on reconciliation with him Right now, I am worried that I will not have any opportunity with him anymore.
But neither do I understand whether his overseas colleague is a rebound since he started chatting with her before breaking up with him or something he is committed to? Please advise on what I should do please? A rebound relationship could just as easily have started before the previous relationship ended since he probably built the connection with her to escape whatever negative emotions he felt in the relationship with you.
This could have been built upon after the breakup because in order to avoid feeling empty and lost from the breakup, he continues to contact her instead which also occupies his mind and time from having to deal with the breakup. Continue with NC and perhaps observe whether the likelihood of her being a rebound is there before you decide whether to move on or not. Hi, but if the coworker is located in another country away from him. Would you think it is possible for them to build a meaningful relationship together?

Also, should I wait for him to contact me, or should I make the first move first? I am afraid if I took awhile to contact him, he might get use to my lack of presence and the chances of me reconciliation with him would be low My ex and I broke up a little more than 2 weeks ago. He said he didn't feel the same anymore and he can't do it anymore, he didn't wanna hurt me than he already was. I applied no cantact 10 days after we split and yesterday, 20 days after we broke up, i just discovered that is already with another girl.
My friend got really upset cos she thought he cheated and went to ask him about it but he answered no and he said he never cheated. He said he's just getting to know her and he just doing what he can to feel better. Do i still have a chance after all this? Ill be going to another country for a year and he promised to take care of my pet while im away so it isn't gonna be hard to see him again if I want to after the no contact period. Should I follow the rule or should I just go ahead and see him? Regardless, you should be considering NC right now at least to sort your emotions out first, because contacting him while you're feeling hurt will only cause you to come across as desperate and needy and this would further ruin any chances you have at winning him back.
Pick that up, and then consider your options again. I broke up with my ex, mainly due to stupidly listening to my friends and not being strong enough to tell them they were wrong etc I hated my decision but was very lost and confused.. I saw him a week later and we spent the weekend together with lots of tears but passion as well.
I said I just needed time, mainly because I was in counselling and wanted to talk everything through with her. I drove to his house Friday to sort things out and he got in my car, and cried, told me he loved me, was kissing me but he had to tell me something. He again, went there anyway. The first time he was alone without me or her he was texting me making sure I was okay, and again sending me music that we used to listen to.
How do I get him back!?!? S the new girl is 19, and has recently broken up with her ex.

Well, seeing her probably makes him feel better and eases the pain he feel regarding the breakup with you. It's likely that she may be a rebound considering how he started dating her almost immediately after, which is a sign of avoidance and not wanting to deal with the break up itself. If you genuinely want to win him back and he's just starting to date someone else but still is positive contact with you, my suggestion would be to build up attraction and a sense of familiarity first instead and give him a reason to want to come back. Since he does not want to address the issue now, then focus keeping the conversation positive so that his negative memory of the past may eventually be replaced.
I just would like to seek your opinion. I was dating this guy for 9 months and we share a great deep connection, and we both know it. However, he was never able to commit in a relationship due to his own personal issues and fears. We agreed to remain as more than friends and continued seeing each other frequently whenever he is back home from his business trips. However, things started to become heavier due to my own insecurities and we had quite a fair number of arguments.
We lived together for 6 weeks, and the relationship became very stressful for him as we had several moments of friction too. He told me that was when he started to lose his feelings for me and felt that having two strong personalities do not work out.

I know of my issues and thus, whenever I felt him withdrawing, I did not know how to give him space. After we flew back home from living together, he suddenly went cold and distant, which I did not know why. I did everything your article told me not to do.. He contacted me a day after we came home and told me that he had slept with someone else, and told me that he wanted to end things.
I reduced my texts and tried to move on. However, a week later, he contacted me and told me that he is now dating the girl who is a complete different girl from his usual type , that he took an interest in a fling more than he should.

I began to become very needy and clingy again over the loaded texts.. A few days later, he told me that he is now attached and thus hopes I'll move on. Told me too that being with me helped him to realize that he needs a woman who is of a very submissive nature, and also because this present relationship feels lighthearted for him, that he does like her but he does not know if it will last.
