    you have to initiate more.. you cant build rapport in talking just once a week

    if he didn’t get them for months, that means they’re not that important but it’s ok if you want to ask him to get them

    that’s ok that you’re initiating.. what’s more important is that you have good conversations and that you’re the one ending it high point.. proceed to calls first before meeting up

    Hi Alexa,

    the comment should just be there and you should see that it states awaiting moderation, if it’s moderated, you would just see it posted. How much did you improve during and after nc? Were you active in posting in social media?

    I have a bit of a situation. i work with this guy and we were friends, I started getting feelings for him and told him I like him, we kissed and started dating. Nothing physical ever happened between us but on our second date I told him I was falling in love with him. He said it back. Well we continued to date for about a month then out of the blue he broke things off saying I was moving too quickly for him and he’s not really ready for a relationship.and that he shouldn’t have said it back but he didn’t want to ruin his chance with me. I’m a little bummed, but old enough to know that men use these as excuses. It’s been about 2 weeks since the breakup and I still talk to him at work but no texts or calls. I’m acting happy all the time, laughing, and on Valentine’s Day I dressed up really nice and he asked me what I was done up for. I just said I’m going out. He doesn’t actively come around my dept at work but I often have to go through his to do work. He is being really nice and friendly with me but I wonder if guys regret a short relationship break up and he doesn’t date a lot and is a pretty shy guy, so I’m not sure how this affects him. I really really want him to regret it, what steps should I take next?

      then accept that he has moved on.. Now, that would mean all he wants is for you to move on in order to be open on being friendly.. if he sees that through your posts whether during nc or after you sent initial text, that’s good.

      it can be because he doesn’t want to see your posts because he’s still affected.. It doesn’t matter if he’s online or not during nc..if he doesn’t want to get back together,.then he has to see that you’re moving on for him to take a chance on being friendly..because if he doesn’t want to get back, he would be annoyed if he thinks you’re chasing..take it as a restart..move on without fully moving on and then slowly rebuild rapport after nc

      You’re welcome! it would be better to make it clear in the comments that you’re not getting married, but that’s a good click bait if he sees it, it can make him wonder. And other than that, just a reminder, post other activities, especially the ones that you look good, happy, playful, having fun or mysterious..

      first, there was not enough for him to regret for when you started nc because he doesnt6 see you living life, having fun, improving and being better.
      because there’s a high chance that he had checked it before.. now, if you have mutual friends, that would help if you go out with them because he will see when they tag you..but if he doesn’t check now, that’s ok..as long as he has something to see once he gets curious when you start to do the building rapport phase

      how much did you improve? because that’s the most important part of nc. I think you need to extend to 45 days and to focus in that and in posting in fb too because even if you’re not friends, there’s still a possibility that he will check that and it’s more natural to have a lot of posts in fb..you need to aim to be the ungettable girl.

    Hi Amor!
    So I actually got asked out on a date for this Saturday. I told the guy that I am just coming out of a relationship, and if we can call it a ‘hang out’ rather than a ‘date’, then I would be happy to go out with him. In a way, I needed to take off that pressure. Anyway, we are going hiking, and one of my ex’s friend, a girl, invited me to go hiking on Saturday, too. So, I thought this could be a perfect opportunity to make him jealous. However, I don’t know how to go about it. You see, I am very wary of this girl because she is kind of bitter and “hates” men, she plays with them but gets hurt all the time – not someone I would take relationship advice from for sure. Also, she is very self-absorbed. I am worried that she will tell him to completely write me off if I do mention that I am going out with a guy, and obviously I don’t want that, I just want him to come to his senses, make him jealous. So, should I say something generic like: ‘Sorry, I made plans (or going hiking) with a friend’ or should I be more specific, such as: ‘Sorry, I’m going hiking with a guy I met the other day at my Krav Maga class’? Not sure how to play this one. Thank you 🙂

    Hi Amor,

    I have been in a relationship for the past year and a half, we were best friends and were perfect for each other (we were basically the same person) .. he was obsessed with me and we used to speak about marriage, kids, our future together etc all the time and it was 90% of the time him bring those topics up.
    We were SO INLOVE ALL OF THE TIME.

    He started acting distant about a month before we broke up but I thought maybe it was because I had taken up working on the weekends for the past 3 months… I shoved it aside because we both had leave in December.. when December came, we only saw each other once and that’s when we started arguing because I missed him and hardly saw him… he got cross and we fought and he decided to break up over text right before Christmas on the 20th … we then met up to exchange our things and he said he wants to spend more time focusing on family, work and getting his license for flying and is unfair on me because he is starting night shifts and when he is off will be getting his hours and he won’t be able to see me much.. and he said that theres is no one else in the picture , he hasn’t met anyone and probably won’t even date for a whole year. I was shattered and was in tears and begged unfortunately – but this didn’t change his mind.

    I was devistated… I have never loved someone so much and was completely shattered.

    Christmas came and I got a text saying merry Christmas I hope you have an incredible day and ended it off with “I do still love you”

    I replied saying I hope he had a great Christmas but ignored the love part… he then only opened my xmas present on Boxing Day and sent another text saying how amazing it is and how much he loves it and posted it onto FB without tagging me. I said it’s a pleasure and just thanked him for my gift.

    Nothing was said until New Years, so I thought if he could text me first for xmas I’ll be the bigger person and said a very neutral happy New Years message, he read it and didn’t reply.

    I had been posting things since we broke up on Facebook about my new job, the birth of my niece(he didn’t even acknowledge even though he was so excited to see her) , etc and he ended up deleting me and majority of our mutual friends from my side and said he doesn’t want to see what I post or me be in his news feed and that I untagged myself from our pictures … he said it was weird so I left it.

    I said I still really miss and love him and he said he did too… I tried asking if we can meet up and chat about our new careers and just chat here up and he said he was busy at the moment and I haven’t heard from him since..

    I’m scared he has met someone new or will move on… but I don’t understand how he could turn so cold after being so inlove???
    What should I do? I really don’t want to lose the love of my life.

    Hi! I am in desperate need of advice: So my ex broke up with me on November 2nd claiming he was thinking about going to Europe and study. I told him I loved him and wanted him to be happy so I would support him. I started NC since day 1, and did almost 2 months of NC,We iniciated a bit of contact around christmas, even though i started notice he was spending lots of time with his ex, his family and friends love her, anyways, a week ago we met for the first time after 2 months to talk and he wanted to give my child a christmas gift, so qe did. He came to say he loved me and misses me. He promised there was nothing going on with his ex and that he wanted to take one day at a time, and see where this is going, he even kissed me goodbye and spent the whole evening holding me. 3 days later after no signs of him I called him to invite him to watch a movie, he said he couldn’t but that he really wanted to, that we should do it next week and to that I said lets talk about it next week. He spend that day with her ex and on the next day I went partying and bumped with him and his ex. I was so sad that I asked a friend to act like if he was into me, and my ex was furious, so mad. He stayed away from his ex, but didn’t even came to say hi to me… so I kept my plan going on, I really could tell he was jealous, and since i was having a really good time i didn’t even notice he had left. Since I was drinking tons, I drunk dialed him at 3am, of course the was no anwser, he didn’t write back or anything. Now its been 3 days, haven’t heard from him! I think I screwed up big time What should I do? Help!

    Hi, I have a question. How do you make your ex jealous subtly through mutual friends? I recently told mine (that has always been difficult to get a commitment from) that I needed some space from us (planning on the 30 day no rule and focusing on myself and taking the advice above) but how do I make it more effective when a mutual friend is checking up on me and asking me how I am doing and I know my response will get back to my ex? Any suggestions?

    I need some advice. I broke up with my ex in October, implemented NC in November. Went the 30 days. He tried contacting me about 2 weeks in saying he needed to talk in person. After the 30 days I did exactly what I was supposed to. Engage in nice convo, have something interesting to talk about, etc. He was calling me and facetiming me. Even told me he loved me and offered to pay my phone bill and pay for my uber both ways to see him (i declined both; I wasn’t ready to see him just yet). About 2 weeks ago I started realizing he wasn’t calling or texting me much any more and when I texted him he would take forever to respond. I blew up on him then he said he didn’t want to talk to me anymore for fear of the passed situations. I acted like it didn’t bother me. I did something stupid and pretended to text him like I was texting another guy. Basically he was under the impression I was talking to someone. He called me a bunch of times but I didn’t answer and he cursed me out through text. He said he wanted to tell me he wanted to get back together but now he didn’t want to, along with a bunch of other stuff. He thought I was having sex with the imaginary guy, but I told him we were just friends and I haven’t had sex with anyone but him (in early November was the last time). After a few days I played nice and texted him asking him how was work. He responded twice the whole day then this morning tells me he decided that he wanted to chill and wasn’t ready for anything. I was upset because he is doing too much back and forth and so stupid thing number 2, I told him I got back with my ex (who he knows as my soulmate and the guy who is perfect for me and he is pretty jealous of him). He gets really upset and says I’m a liar and he can’t trust me and that’s why he doesn’t want to be with me. He says I’m pushy and he’s not ready for a relationship and he doesn’t want to talk to me again. But the roles were reversed. I was sending 1 sentence texts and he was sending paragraphs at a time. This is during the time he would usually say he’s busy at work and blah blah blah. I said “you just said you weren’t ready for anything so why are you upset, you should be happy for me”. He went on to curse the guys name, and make excuses for why he wasn’t doing what I told him my ex was trying and is now doing for me (my ex really has been contacting me since May trying to see me and apologizing, telling me to break up with my then boyfriend). He told me to block him forever, then he said he’s going to block me. I said ok. I assumed he would block me immediately because when I get mad at him he goes on the block list before the message says delivered. So I texted him “ok well much love” 2 or 3 minutes later just to see if he blocked me and he responded “Lol”.

    So my problem is that of course I want to get him back and I really do love him. I’m not pressed to jump into a relationship right now but I want to be in a space where we can communicate effectively, get to know each other better, and fall in love harder than before. I believe he does love me but he doesn’t communicate well and he does not like to show his emotions (unless its anger). He has some growing up to do and I’m cool with that. I just want to be around to grow with him and if we get to a point where a relationship seems right then we can try again. On the other hand he is hot and cold and send me mixed signals which makes me very confused. Now include the bad guy because I’m “dating an ex”. I plan to do no contact for 2 months instead of one this time. Any advice to get myself out of this drama and back in good graces with the man I love?

      I emailed him yesterday just to let him know I “called it off” with the other guy. I told him not for him but because I felt it was the best decision for me. I left the email short. Told him I hope him and his daughter were well and to take care. He didn’t respond but I didn’t expect him to. I still plan to go no contact for a few months. Any advice on what to do after nc is completed? I already completed 30 day nc once, it was successful in him missing me, contacting me, and apparently wanting to get back together, but the conversation we were supposed to have never happened to lead to that point.

      it would still be the same step after nc..initiate a conversation that is interesting for him, better if it’s a current hot topic at that time

      Hi Torri,

      don’t do that again ever. Don’t do or say something when you’re angry. I agree with the 2 or make it 3 but keep in mind, that’s your last best chance, so, use it as a restart.

    Hi Amor
    I was in a long distance relationship with a guy who was one of my family member ( i mean we knew each other and now he is in another country for education) we had this relationship for marriage, we had a very nice relations we talked about 2,3 hours in day and video call but he wasn’t active as me, i mean i was the person who started the conversation every time but he answered me warmly and when I stopped he bacame cold and we talked every week but after a while he didnt call me and when I called he acted very cold without any reason , its been about 6 month since we talked and now i knew that he came to my country about 2 month ago but he didnt tell me( the time that he became cold with me he was in my country dating another girl) I stopped calling him but he called me every 2 or 3 weeks, and i think he is thinking about me and he cant choice between me and a new girl. I knew that he is coming This month so the question is that is there any chance to be with him again( i was loving him very much before he started talking and always thinking of him) so please help me and guide me if there is a chance to make him love me ( we are in our 4 decades and he is 7 years older than me)

    Hi Amor. I commented on another post and we had a long thread going. I’ve been trying to get my ex back for a year trying various methods on the site, including NC several times. We had a complicated breakup, very messy, lots of anger on his part. He’s very stubborn and did a lot of ignoring, so I thought I should get out there a little. I was casually dating someone for a month, but it didn’t work out which is fine with me – I had no feelings. HOWEVER. I brought this guy to a party where my ex was, and he saw us together. Next thing you know, he told our mutual friend how much he hates the guy – but they didn’t even speak! So he’s totally jealous. Yet he insists he doesn’t have feelings for me, so why is he jealous some other guy is talking to me? How can I use this newfound jealousy to work towards getting him back? Thanks, Amor!

      Maybe he’s not really paying much attention to it, or yes he’s just waiting for you to ask for it and it slipped his mind.. Just ask, like I forgot my watch in your place, have you seen it? it’s yours, it’s normal that you would want it back.

      Thank you SO MUCH for asking Jen for me! Did she reply to you? Her answer was right after I told her about spending the night with him – she said, “THAT IS AMAZING NEWS!!! Actions speak louder than words so your in a good spot. I know we’ve been talking on here for a while and your patience is paying off. Keep up what your doing, it’s working.” She hasn’t yet replied to my update on how he said it feels like “going backwards.”

      I really appreciate your honesty, and I know it’s a long shot. I really think his reluctance is not because he doesn’t feel something toward me or because I’m not an attractive partner for him. I fixed what was wrong with the “old me.” He TOLD me as recently as a few weeks ago how funny I am, how pretty I am, how he likes spending time with me, how he has fun when we’re together, how he remembers all our little jokes and such! We have common interests, mutual friends and really everything you need to get along with a person, lol. It’s more about 1. the stigma around getting back with an ex 2. afraid of getting hurt again 3. afraid of not being able to stand up for himself in a relationship…he said he feels obligated/pressured to do things when he’s dating because he’s so nonconfrontational that he fears bringing up issues. He just goes along with everything and lets resentment build up. But I can work with him on that! I WANT to work with him. I want him to feel safe with me.

      Since everything that happened with me staying over a few weeks ago, we haven’t seen each other, but we’ve texted and he doesn’t ignore me or anything. I haven’t brought up emotional stuff again. One thing – I realized I forgot my watch at his place. He hasn’t said anything about it and I’m wondering if he’s waiting for me to ask about it…what’s a casual way to be like, “Hey can I come get it” without him thinking it’s a ploy to see him (I mean, it’d be nice to see him too of course lol). Also, did you and Jen come up with any new strategies I can try? Any ideas would be much appreciated!

      Well, I’m a Kai, as Chris teaches in his very first email module…so I’m not ready to just give up because it’s gotten hard. This site is supposed to help people get exes back even in difficult situations..Chris always continues to advise people even when the odds look low. And I’ve asked my same questions to Jennifer and she’s telling me I have an amazing chance and am making huge progress?? So I’m a little confused here..

      That’s good for you that Jen said that, because it’s a great support since you still want to go on but when did she say that?

      My recent answer is based in what he recently said and from my knowledge of how long you’ve been doing this.

      Chris and Jen are very supportive and you’re right they want to give a possible solution as long as it can, and I’m with them about that of course. But I cant speak for why Jen said that against why I said what I said.

      I’m going to be very honest, it’s been a year, and him saying that being with you feels like it’s moving backwards is not a good sign. That means it’s not progress. He sees the old issues. And I remember, I did say, that’s it’s good sign that he’s considering before but he’s latest answer(for me, at least) is like yes, he feels something for you, but he still sees the old you. To give you a little hope, unless he feels that you’re just really getting good, getting better and if he doesn’t act now, he’s going to lose you then maybe, that can change his mind. It’s like nc all over again. But I guess, it’s either you tell him that you can’t wait forever or move on. It’s that sense of urgency. Like, you don’t have a lifetime to wait for him to be brave.

      But I would talk to Jen, and try to find out why she said what she said, and give her my take too. We’re going to brainstorm. If I’m wrong. I would be really happy for you. So, I hope you can wait. I’ll email her later and ask her about your situation.

      I texted him asking how his trip went and we talked about that for a bit, then I sent him a song I knew he’d like (which he did). I asked if he wanted to hang out this week. He said he might be free Saturday. So today I texted to find out the plan. He said, “I’ve been thinking about what we discussed and it’s not for me. It just feels too familiar – when we hang out it feels like we’re still together and I don’t really like it. I know how I am. I can’t really do the casual thing and because of our history it will put me in a different frame of mind where I won’t want to meet other people; I’ll just want you. It just feels like I’m moving backwards.”

      What do you make of this? So he can’t be casual with me because he’ll end up wanting me? He can’t see me because it feels like we’re dating, we’re so comfortable and get along so well? That’s kind of the whole point! It sounds like fear to me. It’s like the guy who love somebody so much but is afraid to propose – because of his own fears, not because he doesn’t love the girl. That’s what I think is holding him back.. his fears, not his feelings. Please help me figure out what to do next!

      I think you have to move on.. Whether it’s commitment issues or not, bottomline is he doesnt want to go back with you.. You’ve invested so much time and energy already. There’s no point in wasting more

      That’s fair. But it’s a good thing he’s considering it, right? So is there anything I can do to encourage him to say yes? Or do I just wait patiently for his answer? You know from our previous communication that he avoids confrontation and hasn’t been texting me first at all..so I don’t really see him texting first even after he’s made a decision!

      yep, it’s a very good thing… I know it’s been going on so long now, but I think, you really have no better choice than to patient, give him time and then when you know you’ve given him enough time and he still hasn’t answered, ask him. At least you know you didn’t rush.

      Update – These interactions are very confusing. Last night we went to the same party..and he kissed me!! We were sober so it wasn’t alcohol-induced. We ended up spending the night together (no sex). Lots of laughing and joking, tickling, cuddling. But he’s still saying he’s moved on and has no feelings for me. Huh?? The words and actions don’t make sense, UGH. What do you make of it?

      Today I was very straight up with him and asked, “Do you enjoy spending time with me?” He said yes. “Are you attracted to me?” Yes. “Do you like me as a person?” Yes. So what’s keeping you from wanting a relationship? And he said he doesn’t want to feel pressured or obligated, or lose his “me time,” and we had bad communication before so he felt like he couldn’t voice these concerns. I tried to explain those aspects shouldn’t be in a healthy relationship to begin with! I suggested we take it slow and see each other casually, and he was thinking for quite awhile and struggling to decide..he asked if he could have some time to think about it. I said OK. The fact that he was struggling vs. just saying no means at least some part of him wants to, right? Should I just wait for him to text me his answer, or do I contact him in a couple days and ask for his decision?

      when he said he doesn’t want to feel pressured and he doesn’t want to lose his me time, that means you asking or texting for an answer is pressure. I know it’s so hard, but the translation of that is, until he’s sure that you’re independent enough, or you have your own life enough not to bother him with anything he wants to do, he will not commit.

      OK, I’ll make this my last attempt. Do I text him? It’s been three days since we got back from the trip to the mountains. I don’t think he will text me first, but I don’t mind starting a conversation.

      If I start the convo and then disappear (ending it first but not saying “bye”), is that an effective tactic? I read that Chris said he prefers ending by disappearing rather than telling them you’re going so you leave them wanting more.

      most of the time it works, but of course it will depend on the conversation.. if it’s a wonderful story conversation and you left at the high note of it suddenly, that’s ok but if he’s asking something important and you didn’t answer, that would be rude

      Yes, to be honest.. You have to set a limit on until when you would try because if you don’t, it would go longer without progress. Like if this is the last attempt, give yourself, maybe two months.. If it really doesn’t progress, then you have to move on

      OK, I’ll continue what I’m doing. This past weekend we all took a trip to the mountains and he came with us, so we were pretty close in this mountain cabin. There was no ignoring or being awkward with me. It felt like we were together again. It’s so easy to fall back into the same routines – he forgot shampoo so he asked to share mine, he asked me to help him clean up bottles after we all drank, he walked outside with me when we had to grab a deck of cards from the car (even though it was a one person task – he said “Maybe I just wanted the company!”), we sat next to each other in the hot tub, we sat next to each other playing card games, we shared inside jokes – even a dirty joke once where he winked at me!

      I know when you dated as long as we did (two years), it’s natural to be drawn to each other. But I still feel like we have a connection. I feel like there are some feelings there on his end, under the surface, but he’s scared to let them appear because he doesn’t want to get hurt again. But the fact that we can spend a weekend together getting along, no drama or making a scene or having anybody feel uncomfortable..that’s really good right??

      I know my situation is more difficult than most, and it’s going slower than what I usually see on here. I know Chris loves a challenge though. Is there any way you could ask him what my next step should be? Do I text my ex in a few days? How can I capitalize on what seems to be a lasting connection between us? You keep saying to just continue what I’m doing with my own life, and believe me I am. I need direction on what to do next with him though, because I’m absolutely positive I still want him back. Your team is my only help!

    Hi! Day 3 of NCP and he still hasn’t texted me back. We weren’t really in a relationship just hanging out, go on dates and have sex for 3 months. When I asked him what he wants he told me he doesn’t know. He doesn’t want a relationship but didn’t want to see other girls either. It’s been really weird. I got really upset with him and that pushed him away, so we had ‘the talk’ for 3 hours and he said he didn’t want to see me upset and rather be friends than upset me. Then I said I still want to hang out like before, we kissed and he said “we’ll go to the beach tomorrow and talk more”… He never texted me back about it (3 days now) amd I haven’t contacted him either. He told me he ‘really really likes me alot’ but can’t give me what I want and he doesn’t know yet what he wants.
    Im texting now with one of the guys he knows (no friends but they know eachother) and he likes me. Tonight I’m going to the gym where they do jiu jitsu in a big group and the guy asked me to come say hi and give him a kiss on the cheek. My crush will be there as well.. Shall I somewhat shrug him off and pay more attention to the guy I’ve been texting with?

      Hi Michele..

      Don’t do that. Don’t be the easy girl that the guys go to to sleep with ok?

      He was unsure, because he already got what he wanted from you without commitment. Kissing the new guy now in front of him will just lower your value. You will appear like a flirt which I don’t you think you are.. But honestly, I think you don’t value yourself that much.

      Value yourself because from what you said, you look like a very beautiful girl. You have a lot of admirers. You won’t have a hard time attracting guys, but you will have a hard time keeping them if you don’t let them work for you. It’s ok to go out with other people, just don’t be too forward.

    I was dating a guy and he broke up with me for summer. I did no contact and he contacted me during it and I didn’t respond. Then I reached out and we decided we shouldn’t talk because we are done and he didn’t want the same thing to happen as last time. But then end of summer he started talking to me again and says he has no expectations but loves talking to me and wants to keep talking to me and see where it goes. He misses me yada yada and face timed me and like reared up. I messed up and hooked up with him so I lost the upper hand but now I need to get it back. He texted me if I’m out (at 1:30!!) nooo.. And idk how to move forward.. How do I make him want ME and not think I’m wrapped around his finger.. So what do I do about the text do I ignore it? And what do I do moving on from here?
