    Ok how about on and off relationships ?
    I have done the Nc rule before and it worked.
    Now we are going through breakup number 4. His birthday is in few days. By the time of his birthday it will be 1 month of successful no contact.

    I was thinking of actually sending a very thoughtful gift that means a lot to him. But send no text message. So basically just arrange to have the gift delivered and thats it.

    Question: Do i break the no contact rule by sending a gift? ( i know i will receive a message from him and planning not to reply)

    Question 2: will my move of sending a very thoughful gift show that i am very desperate and available ?

    Thank you

    Hi Amor,

    Thanks for your reply. I somehow got through the day and did not respond to his text. I hope i did the right thing. Now should i contact him only after the NC period??

    Hi EBR Team,

    My situation is reversed. It’s my birthday today and my ex wished me but I’m on the 16th day of No Contact. He dumped me around two weeks back. Should i respond back? I’m quite resolved to complete my nc period actually. I’d like your opinion please. Please help me, thanks.

    Thanks for this. My ex’s birthday is next week and I’m currently on day 5 of nc. He broke up with me last year I did nc and he apologized on day 10, then he broke up with my again last week and I’m going back to nc, I really do hope that he does come back, but for now I’m just going to focus on being the UG.

    It’s been 4 months since my ex and I have had any contact. I broke up with him. He wished me a Happy Belated Birthday. And, said I hope you had a great day. Why would he send a message days after my birthday?

      That’s hard to say without knowing the history but most of the time it’s either he missed you, or something reminded him and he just greeted you

    Hey I have started NC again as I text him last week to say I am thinking of him and goodnight (not spoke for a week) he responded saying he’s thinking of me, hopes I’m well and good too (was something we alway said before we went to sleep). Since then I text him the following day, nothing then the next day after wishing him a good holiday, nothing again. So I started NC and on day 4 his birthday comes round. He’s current on holiday for three weeks on his own in a place full of memories of stuff we did there together for every holiday has been there for 5 years. My question is why send a text saying he’s thinking of me and should I wish happy birthday as I’ve not been a gnat ex xx

      Hi Suzanna,

      because that’s human nature.. he would really still be thinking of you, that’s why you need to utilize this time to be active in posting and to stick in nc.. nope, don’t greet him.

    Hey Chris my exboyfriend birthday actually is in my 30 day no contact, I couldn’t resist I told him happy birthday, he was actually surprised and told me thank you, and that he wasn’t expecting a happy birthday from me that he really appreciate it, he actually sounded really happy. I just answer with a smiley face. Plus im still going to do my 30 days, actually on my 9th, never been the person who is a gnat to there ex. So thats why i texted. But yea my question is, is that a good sign the way he answered me?
