    would sending a mature moving on message spark his interest?
    this is following the completion of NC and after i see that his responses are neutral

    before just ignoring him for a month again to spark some interest, should i say what is on my mind if it will also help me move on? also to boost his regret when i enter 30 days of NC again?

    what i want to send:
    im not good w things like this but it helps to remember you always respond to everything so well
    iv been thinking about you lately, and the fun we had together. you were so thoughtful all the time that i enjoyed exactly what we had, and i wish i had communicated that better with you.
    everything especially the new job is great so iv finally been able to relax and let everything fall in place. i hope you’re doing well too 🙂

    Curious, would this sort of thing work – the getting him to regret letting you go, even if YOU were the one that originally left him? (Taking into account the reason for leaving wasn’t due to lack of feelings anymore, but more his taking you for granted)

    So my ex and I broke up back in October because he was “having a hard time due to being attracted to me because I got along so well with his family.” Anyway we had a really amazing relationship and I was the first girl that his family loved. It got to the point where I was hanging with his family more than him so of course the physical relationship had failed. We saw each other last weekend and it was all there. We didn’t kiss. Probably should have, he then sent me a pic of his breakfast the next morning that he use to make me and we texted through the day some. I asked him if he’d like to hang out Saturday when he got off work and his response was I don’t think so. So obviously that hurt. I texted him a long message like just spend time with me etc. You know the crazy girl messages. And no response. I didn’t think he’d respond anyway. So where do I go from here? I know he’s the person for me but now I feel I messed it up.

    “If you reach this point without doing the (available/unavailable) trend that I keep going on and on about you are going to find yourself friend zoned as opposed to being his girlfriend again” i did this mistake 🙁

    Its been 2mths plus since i contacted my ex after i did NC. I met him 3times so far (very hard to do since he often cancels on me) But if we do finally meet, he would show signs of wanting me. Touching me, attempting to kiss me etc when he does that, i will pull away. Its weird cause when he sees me, his body language is really positive. But he tends to be cold in his text msgs sometimes not replying me or one word ans.

    If i were to do NC time and time again in an attempt to be unavailable to him. Do you think he will feel any regret?

      He may feel regret but it’s interesting that he is so cold in messaging you.

      If only you could flip the script on him.

      Can your phone send video messages? I love those things b/c it can show the person what they are missing (your face) as opposed to a text and it can do wonders if you are attractive to making them want to see you.

      Funny you mentioned that cause i sent him a video msg once. A simple gd morning message. And he agreed to meet me the day after i sent that; when i asked him out for coffee (third meetup after NC) Hahaha. Honestly i never thought of sending videos till i came across your site! So that was the first video i ever sent him.

      Yes! Thats what i dont quite understand. He seems neutral almost cold in his text replies. And We dont talk on the phone either. I’d try calling him occasionally. Maybe one or two calls in a day. And he wont ans. Only once i did a complete out of the blue phonecall, he answered. Why is that so i wonder? Its hard to let my emotional connection with him get me a date since his replies are neutral. But when i do get a date, he will really open up to me; telling me of his updates in life. He’d even caress my face and chin, then tried to kiss me on the third meetup. But our meetups are at his convenience. If he happens to be ard my area, he’d catchup with me. Makes me feel i’ve been friendzoned perhaps?

      He texted me the next morning saying “morning, i want to apologise for yesterday” and i ignored his msg. Slipping into NC again for now. I think sometimes silence speaks louder than words, so its better i ignore him for now. Do you think he’s actually starting to feel regret? Or just saying sorry for the sake of it. I wonder what is going through his head. Sigh.

      I’m doing NC again. For the 3rd time. First time i did 30days. Second time i did a wk of NC. I’m tired of having the one to initiate contact etc. Tired of chasing him though its been only 2mths plus since first NC. I feel like i’m inflating his ego each time i try to start a convo with him first.

      I have a qns. Do men play hard to get with their exs? Or they just simply cannot be bothered anymore? How can u tell the difference? Doing NC this time, i dont think i will initiate contact anymore. Just going to try my best to “move on”

      Chris, i’m going to go on a bit of a rant here if you would pls excuse me.

      I just came back frm a 4th meetup with him. I was all excited thinking since its a 4th meetup, surely he still had feelings for me. I was all set to ask him where this is all going and etc. Esp since the 3rd meetup which was one or two wks ago, went pretty well. Boy, was i so wrong. It was a disaster. So he met me after his soccer game, we had supper and clearly he was very tired. And stubborn me, i asked if he still had feelings for me. He said no. He told me to date other men and move on, dont wait for him. He didn make any physical contact with me. Unlike previous meetups; his body language, everything was negative.

      when i asked him where this is all going, he actually said that there are 3-4 other ladies whom are pressurizing him too! He’s dating them. But he claims all of us are just “friends” said he really leaves it to fate if one day he wakes up to decide on marrying who.

      What’s worse was how it ended. He waited with me for the bus for almost 45mins. I was upset and didn feel like going home so soon. I told him he could go back if he wanted to. And he did! Just left me there. He didn text or call to check if i was home safe.

      Now, i understand i need to slip into NC yet again. But will it even work anymore this time? What if he means what he said? Should i excuse him for it since he was very tired? Is there hope? 🙁

      I asked some of my guy friends and they said maybe the only reason why he agreed to meet me for the 4th time was cause he cancelled on me many times before we could finally meet for the 4th time. Once i waited 2hrs and he stood me up. So how do i know if he indeed still has feelings for me? Action speaks louder than words. But now he may just have agreed to meet me out of guilt?

      And he made it clear that im friendzoned. What should i be doing now? Nc yet again and again. Sigh. Sorry for the long comment btw.

    Hi Chris,

    I have bought your E-book and it helps me a lot throughout my 30 days NC. Thank you very much for that! (oh FYI, My ex didnt contact me at all during the NC =.=)

    So after my NC, I sent him the 1st text early this week saying I have a confession to make… and he asked “what?”. I mentioned about our favourite TV show and it reminds me of him (I made it short as following your guide ^^).

    Then he replied by asking me :”that’s your confession?”. I found it so cold from him, so I just stopped the conversation by saying I gotta go.

    So I decided to wait another week NC before text him again. But I dont know what to text him next? He seems like doesnt want to talk to me. Any advice for me? (We’re in LDR for more than a year)

    Thanks.

      I was his 1st girlfriend so guess i could say that i set the bar theory a little bit high? because there was no one to compare to until now, and he hooked up someone totally inappropriate and opposite of me which is a bit ok because it takes time to develop the interest compared to what he was already comfortable with and he already saw her flaws.

      Hey btw so don’t know why guys when you try to talk to them like you said just act mean still towards me. He was okay cuz he called on the phone then just was harsh and wish I left it like that and idk now he thinks I’m some crazy person and like doesn’t remember good times just the bad ones and it sucks how do you even get them too. I text him about a good time we had and he just says he doesn’t want tht, he doesn’t want a relationship and it’s nice being by himself so he doesn’t have to answer to anyone..then says he doesn’t want to be with me cuz how I have acted when he admits he has changed. He judge me by the two times I saw him but I was so emotionally not ready or should have went but it’s been about 4 months now.ans idk if he wants to meet up just cuz last time was bad since he thinks it will happen again. But he keeps blamin me when he was being mean to me and has changed into a horrible person and idk why. I blame myself too about how it all went but I was being mature about texting and he just was a jerk and laughing on whatever I say. Even after 3 years and he says he isn’t hurt anymore he’s fine is that even true? And next month would have been our 3 years exactly 🙁

It has helped a lot but idk if I can let anyone in right now since I like being and living by myself but I miss him a lot. I don’t think I can be the first to reach out cuz I did the last 3 times and it failed. I know he’s still my friend on the social sites but I can’t be you know? My heart still aches and I’m not sure if ill ever hear from him again. Any suggestions???

I have gotten rid of a lot of things such as all social sites (except yours of course ;)) and it feels good so I don’t see anything. But yes I tried hanging with other guys and even friends but it still gets me especially wed would have been our 3 years 🙁 why honestly would he react mean towards me?

I still get upset every now and then but honestly I have like no more feelings left. I don’t feel anything towards anyone. It’s been like 4 months and it’s also been 3 weeks since we did last talk but now everytime I have reached out he’s a been a jerk towards me and juat laughs or makes fun of me. I feel like not trying anymore.

      So also when I was talking with him he kept saying that he doesn’t want to be with me because of how immature I am (which I am not, he keeps looking back at the two times I did see him but I wasn’t in the right logical state too and since then I am better) I kept telling him it’s not like tht anymore I was really hurt and that now I have things under control then keeps going he doesn’t want a relationship when I would bring up fun things we use to do together and such. It’s like him saying also mean full things just like the other day I was around target where it’s also near his house and I told him I was by the neighborhood and asked how are things and such and he just goes stay away from my house..I told him I wasn’t I was at target which is near mine and his and then he asks if I went to his house to his door cuz his mom told him I guess..(he wasn’t at home he was on a trip with his dad which he told me too) I’m like no? Like why would his mom say something crazy like that. Just like the last time I saw him last month his dad told him I was driving around the house. Like then I didn’t even live there I lived 3 hours away but wtf I would never do that. There is another car in their neighborhood that is just like mine..if like his parents are making it seem I am a bad person. I’m just curious why would he act such a jerk whenever I am trying to be nice and jut talk a bit. He said he’s changed but still that jerk page he def acts like the one who says mean things..why would they do such a thing??

      I’m glad Nicole brought up Instagram! My ex asked for some more time and space before we move forward or try to hang out so I did full NC. And about a week after NC ended (no “first text”) yet, he liked a couple pics on Instagram- one of my new hair cut. Does that mean that he’s ok with being in contact now? Would a first text be good?

      Yeah it’s not like he hasn’t likes one in the last this is the 3rd time during our break up but it’s like I get the notification he likes it but then his name isn’t shown on the picture he did and I mean doing this 3 times is kind of crazy and sort of sending a message to me? I mean we kind of had our first meet up not end well and he pretty much said leave him alone but he didn’t delete me off the social media sites and then likes a photo of me with my new hair cut too. Is that something good?
