There is something that I want you to get used to if you want your ex boyfriend back.

Your ex boyfriend doesn’t want you…

Now, I know that may be a bit harsh but bear with me here.

Too often have I worked with people who have fallen victim to this rhetoric that starting off your ex boyfriend wants you back. While I assume there are some cases where this occurs I can tell you pretty confidently that in most cases this is extremely rare.

In fact, I find that most ex boyfriends won’t talk to you and claim that they are truly done with you.

But then why is it that close to 43% of them end up coming back after it’s all said and done?

Is it even possible to make your ex fall in love with you again?

Well, that’s what I am going to be exploring today with this article.

A Realistic View Of Your Chances And What That Means For You 

I find it’s always helpful to take a big picture view of things when you are dealing with a scenario as deeply complex as winning an ex back.

Now, you are reading this article because you want your ex boyfriend back and he has expressed some type of sentiment that he doesn’t want you back, right?

But how often will he change his mind about you?

For the longest time this was a burning question in my mind that I felt no one really had a great answer for.

Hell, I didn’t even have a great answer for it.

I mean, when a woman would come up to me and ask,

“Chris, what kind of chance do I have here?”

I would simply say,

“It depends…”

And it does depend but that answer isn’t good enough for you, is it?

No, you are looking for something exact.

So, one day I got this crazy idea.

What if I pooled all of my success stories and knowledge together to come up with a rough percentage of success. Of course, I found that my “rough percentage” was flawed in many ways because this was a sample of the people that I have worked with.

So, I decided to up the ante and ask a few of my relationship expert peers what kind of results they were seeing.

I also wanted to include data done by researchers so that I could come up with an aggregate percentage that was trustworthy.

So, what does all of this mumbo jumbo science talk mean for you?

Well, it means that according to my research, as a baseline, your chances check in around 43%.

Some may think that 43% is good and others may think it’s awful but you have to bear in mind. This 43% success rate is taken from a majority of people who haven’t followed the correct breakup protocol.

In other words, there is definite room for improvement on a 43% chance assuming you do the right things.

Oh, and I think perhaps it’s important to mention that the vast majority of the 43% of successes all had partners who didn’t want them back.

So, what is the secret?

How are they able to convince an ex who doesn’t want them to come back?

Is There A Chance Your Ex Will Take You Back?

Changing His Mind About You, The Door To Door Salesman 

I can think of no better analogy to speak on your circumstance than the door to door salesman.

Think about it for a minute.

A door to door salesman is immediately greeted with contempt upon commencing on a sales pitch.

After all, no one likes another person spamming their life with sales pitches.

Right now, you are a door to door salesman and your ex literally wants nothing to do with you.

So, how do we change that?

Well, we need to convince him that you aren’t a door to door salesman. We have to do something to make him think the opposite.

Consider for a moment that two people are trying to sell you a product, for this articles sake lets just keep it simple and say it’s a vacuum.

So, who are the two people trying to sell you this illustrious vacuum?

  1. A door to door salesman
  2. Your best friend

The Contempt Of The Door To Door Salesman Pitch

Knock Knock….

(You answer the door…)

Hi mam,

My name is Ricky, your friendly neighborhood vacuum salesman. I wonder if I might have a moment of your day to discuss vacuums. It says here that….

(You slam the door in his face…)

It’s funny to me that people think that they are going to make sales this way.

Everything about the sleazy salesman approach turns people off.

The fact of the matter is that no one likes to feel taken advantage of or pushed too hard to buy something. In fact, when we do push someone too hard we end up pushing them away and therein lies the biggest flaw of the door to door salesman pitch.

It forces people to make a decision based on the recommendation of someone you have never met.

Now, lets compare this to an approach a best friend might take.

The Best Friend Sales Pitch

You have been BFF’s with Lisa since you were in grade school.

The two of you are two peas in a pod…

As thick as thieves…

Now, Lisa isn’t a saleswoman.

No, she is just your best friend and upon having you mention to her that your vacuum broke she decides to make a recommendation.

Hey,

You know what brand works for me? Shark! It’s great, I have had it for years and it’s the best vacuum I have ever owned.

She didn’t try to sell you a vacuum.

She simply told you about her experience owning one and recommended it to you.

So, you go out and buy it.

Putting It All Together

Now, am I saying that you have to become best friends with your ex in order to get him back.

No way!

All I am saying is that your approach needs to dramatically change.

Too often I see people approaching their exes like saleswomen.

You need to come back to me because (insert reason)

You were the best thing to ever happen to me and I was the best thing to ever happen to you.

Please come back… I am nothing without you

This is completely the wrong way to approach the situation. It’s not the right way to sell yourself.

What Is The Right Way To Sell Yourself

One of the most common questions you are probably wondering at this point is if there is any way that you can change his mind about you. Seeing as how it appears he doesn’t want you in his life anymore what can you possibly do?

Well, I thought I’d start by using a pretty fun analogy.

I’m a big fan of fan of Quentin Tarantino and even though it may not seem like it since I have been churning out quite a few articles for the past few week I have been quite sick.

Now, I’m the type of person that tries to turn “being sick” into a positive.

(Yes, I’m one of those.)

So, generally when I get sick I get a lot of free time outside of work and I use it doing all kinds of nerdy things.

I play video games,

I read books,

And I watch movies,

And it just so happened that I ended up watching about 5 tarantino movies while I was sick and I couldn’t help but connect with analogy that one of his characters said in one of his movies.

In the movie, Django Unchained, Dr. King Schultz and Django decide to partner up to rescue Django’s wife who is in the clutches of a slave owner but the problem is that they have no way of being invited onto this slave owners land.

That is when Dr. King Schultz comes up with a plan,

Imagine that a man is trying to buy a horse and he knocks on a farmers door and offers to buy the farmers horse.

What does the farmer say?

He says, no.

So… the man walks up to the farmer’s farm, he knocks on the farmer’s door and asks not to buy the horse, but the farm. And makes an offer so ridiculous, the farmer is forced to say yes.

Now, why do you think I connected to this analogy?

Well, it’s because it plays on the idea of human psychology. In my experience, human beings resist change with everything they have and make no mistake about it a man trying to buy another mans horse is a pretty big change.

So, in order to get past this initial roadblock you have to do something to make it worth it.

In this example it’s offering to buy the farm at a ridiculous price but lets distill this down and connect it to your circumstance.

Right now you want your ex boyfriend back but he doesn’t want you. Of course, you are trying to change that but change doesn’t come easy. What you are currently lacking is a ridiculous offer.

Crafting Your Ridiculous Offer

So, what have we established so far?

  • Your ex doesn’t want you but you want him…
  • That your ex is going to resist change with everything that he has…
  • And that in order to get him to embrace this change you need some kind of ridiculous offer to make it worth his while….

Now, the analogy above with the farmer deals with a monetary means. In other words, offering to buy something for an outrageous amount of money. But we are dealing with something far more difficult, human relationships.

What’s more is that often you’ll find every person has a different preference for what they like in relationships and this is where knowing your ex boyfriend comes into play.

Lets pretend that I am a woman and I am trying to get my ex boyfriend back and it is time for me to craft my ridiculous offer.

How would I go about crafting my ridiculous offer?

Well, the very first thing I would do is take out a piece of paper and start listing what I know my ex is attracted to.

  • I know he likes trucks
  • I know he is a fan of sci fi movies
  • I know he enjoys a girl who isn’t overly clingy
  • You get the idea

Basically I want a cheat sheet of what my ex is attracted to and then one by one I am going to go down that list and see how many of those things I like.

Wait… Wait… I see where you are going with this. I don’t like this one bit. I shouldn’t have to become someone I’m not just to get my ex back.

Do you want me to tell you how it is or do you want me to play into the politically correct society that we live in?

Look, I am going to quote from another of my favorite movies that perfectly encapsulates how I feel about this.

What really matters is what you like, not what you are like.

-High Fidelity-

In other words, assuming all things are equal the chances are high that a man is going to be more attracted to a woman who has all of his same interests than one who doesn’t.

Now, am I saying that you need to change your whole personality to appease some “man.”

No, that is not what I am saying at all.

Instead, what I am saying is that you need to add to your personality.

Maybe I wasn’t a fan of trucks but it isn’t going to hurt me to learn everything about them.

Maybe I’m not a fan of science fiction books or movies but it won’t hurt me to read and watch a few.

Do you get where I am going with this?

Essentially my ridiculous offer is becoming someone that my ex cannot pass up on.

Now, as for how you should show your ex this ridiculous offer. Well, I’d like you to explore this website or check out Ex Boyfriend Recovery PRO to understand my process a bit better (I can’t give you everything for free.)

I’d Like To Test Your Ridiculous Offer

Maybe your ex boyfriend has moved on…

If not, maybe he’s not responding to you or texting you back.

Whatever your situation I want to assure you that me and my team are at your disposal and I am about to prove it.

I realize that crafting a “ridiculous offer” can be a little difficult and you might need a little help.

So, here is what I am prepared to do for you today.

Spend some time brainstorming what your ridiculous offer will be. Spend some time figuring out what you need to add to your personality and put it in the comments below.

After you do that we will get back to you with what we think and any adjustments you need to make.

Sound good?

    My boyfriend and I started out very quickly and moved right in together 2 years ago. Things started getting bad about 8 months ago, we would fight about stupid things. The main thing we fought about was him spending so much time with his mother. She’s sick but not dying and his dad takes care of her for the most part but he was always there. It started taking its toll and I was lonely. Anyway, things just went downhill from there. Well the second week of May we got into a huge fight and he left. He’s been gone ever since. We still talk and we’re still having a physical relationship but that’s about it. 2 weeks ago he decided to come back for good and the second night he was here there was an incident with my son. After that got worked out he left and told me that he doesn’t want to be with me anymore. He said deep down he wants us to eventually get back together but that may take a couple of years. He says he doesn’t want to be with anyone ever but if he decides he does than it’ll be with me. He wants me to let him go but I can’t. I’ve been trying for 4 months. But now that he actually broke up with me 2 weeks ago I don’t know what to do. He won’t tell me he loves me anymore, he doesn’t call me babe anymore, I just don’t know what to do but I want him back so bad. And after all of that we are still sleeping with eachother occasionally. So what can I do? How do I get him to come back?

      Hi Nadia!

      Family issues can cause stress and that was effecting you guys. So you and your ex are sort of in a rut. The relationship is not healthy, but you still hook up, yet are separated in another way. So this could go on for awhile with little improvement or it could get worse. You might consider breaking this routine and go into No Contact, explaining to your ex you need time to heal and also focus in being the best “you”.

    Hey, my ex and I broke up May 31, 2018. I am having a very hard time with this,because I know he is my soulmate. I made various mistakes by talking to other guys and disrespecting him. Currently I am different and he doesn’t see that: he has blocked me on everything and I don’t even know if it’s possible to get him back .

    Hello !
    My ex broke up a bit more than 6 months ago, after more than one year of relationship, because I became needy and insecure. He was very sad to break up. After, we have always been in touch and nice to each other. During the first two months, I begged a bit (but I did not send him a lot of texts of instance). We saw each other again after two months, he hugged me and kissed. But when I asked him explanations, he got angry, saying we would not go back together. After two weeks without talking, we starting emailing each other, and he saw my changes as he told me (I started traveling again a lot). We emailed and talk for four months, he was sometimes initiating too, bringing topics and sharing things. We never talked about « us » just our lives, like friends could do. But two weeks ago, he told me he did not see the point of talking, we were not together and he could not forget our past relationship, that we would not go back together. Isn’t it a bit hot and cold behavior or am I just seeing signs where there is nothing ? Should I just wait for him to maybe (who knows) text me ?
    (Just to mention I moved in his country and we were living together after months apart when he broke up, we are separated by distance now but I came back to his city one week ago, for work. And that my ex is the kind of man who wants to stick to his decision..)

    Hey guys! My ex and i were together for 5 years and 2 months. I can honestly say that we lived through many happy moments during the rust years and he even proposed . We were engaged for about 7 months. These last couples of however were somehow feeling like we were distant from each other. He was caught in a few lies and I suspected him cheating. He was pretty much blaming me for it saying it was because I had gained weight and also he felt like he didn’t love me anymore. I just can’t seem to add up how he doesn’t live me anymore. Well we broke up about 3 weeks ago and he told me he wanted me back , but then changed his mind and said he didn’t think we would ever be back together because he didn’t love me. I honestly think that we had a lot to make this relationship work. I live him deeply and want him back. I made the mistake of texting him after the break up and he told me he wants us to be friends. I don’t want that I want to somehow make him see that we can actually work. I’m trying the 4 weeks no contact rule and see if maybe that helps ? … what do you recommend for me I need help !?

      Hey Jennifer!

      So 5 years in a relationship plays to your advantage as a bond grows and it is not easy to completely sever. He is wrong to blame you. Never is a breakup the fault of one person. Looks like he was trying to shift and deflect the blame. I agree with you going into NC. You have my book, right? If not, go take a look as it will help optimize your chances as there is much to know.

    Hi , we were together for about 4 years with some on and off situations. He said he was tired of being in a relationship mostly because he wanted his space to make his own decisions. It’s been a month and I want him back. I know it’s not up to me, but I am making an effort to see and talk to him hopeing there will be a rekindling of some kind. How do I approach him after we went on 2 “dates” and want to ask him

      Hi GG!

      So 4 years together is a strong foundation and gives you some traction and roots wot work with. Guy often will say they need space and most of the time, the do. Only later do they realize they need you more than then need space. Like a fine wine, allowing time to age the attraction. Doing the little subtle things to raise your value. Its also about having a cohesive game plan. Go to my website’s home page and there you will find tools and resources that can help you. I have distilled a lot of my knowledge in some helpful products that can benefit you.

I finally asked him to block my number and social media and he did. I feel so bad about this. But I still miss him. What do you think I should do now? Is there any way to fix this or I should completely forget about him?

    Me and my ex boyfriend were going out close to a year, after 4 months of dating he moved away for a job so we did long distance. We’d see each other every 2-4 months. We were so happy in our relationship but eventually decided to end it because the distance was hard. We ended on good terms. Since I’ve been in a relationship for close to a year and we haven’t talked. The other night I reached out to him saying how I still have feelings for him and asked fin we could try work things out and be sort of of casually dating while he’s home for 3 months. He said he’s not interested in a relationship at the moment and suggested we be frack buddies. He told me to not get my hopes up thinking he’ll love me again because it’ll end badly. My family has been begging me to get back with him cause we were so happy and we loved each other but it’s hard to do when he doesn’t want it. He moves back home at the end of the year and I’ll be going to University. What do I do?

      Hi Lily…thanks for dropping by. So was he brutally honest or brutally selfish and insensitive about his f buddies comment? Not sure, Long distance can put a monkey wrench into relationships, but I found my wife through a LDR, so there is always hope. But I want you to be pragmatic. It may not work out, so if you pursue it, just know your feelings will be exposed and you could be hurt…again. My gut tells me that he is just casually engaged in the relationship working. I could be wrong. My concern is your emotional health. So I would also recommend you consider joining my Private Facebook Support Group. It consists of about 1500 women right now and they have all been through different breakup situations and help each other. I also show up weekly to do Facebook lives.

    Hello,
    Me and my boyfriend just broke up a little over a week ago. We were dating for 11 months. The first 9 months were amazing. We never fought about anything and it was the happiest time of my life. We started talking February of last year and quickly we were hooked and we ended up just picking a date that he said I love you, which he said it first. He’s a we not in college now and I graduated last year and I moved back home. I live in NYC and he lives in Philly. The summer time and fall semester was easy we saw each other all the time and went on cute dates and were laughing all the time. We had an argument after Christmas but we moved past it and we both agreed we were doing a lot better and we were both happy. Now that spring semester is here, he’s more busy with baseball and it is very stressful for him. I can tell. I’ve gone to many games to see him play and even taken road trips with his mom. We didn’t get to do many fun things the last month because every weekend he had baseball practice but I always went down to see him even if I spent most of the time waiting for him to come back, I didn’t care I was glad I just got to see him. But anyway last Sunday he said we needed to talk that he didn’t know how he felt anymore and he had been feeling this way for awhile and there was nothing that I could do or could have done differently I was perfect. When I suggested it could be the stress of school and graduating he agreed and said he would love to talk about it before giving up. Unfortunately he didn’t get home till 1am that night so we ended up talking the next night. She. He broke up with me. He just said he wasn’t crazy about me anymore and just wasn’t excited to text me or call me. I was so heartbroken and basically fell apart I can barely remember our conversation because I felt like I was in a for and he made up the decision all by himself and didn’t include me in it. He said he cared about me he just didn’t think it was love. What should I do? I love him so much and only in the end of January he was asking me if I saw him in my furture because he saw one wigh me. How could he fall out of love in two weeks? I honestly,think with the stress from baseball, school, graduating and having to move back home to start his Job has got his emotions all mixed up. I havnt spoken to him since we broke up because I figured space would be best for him. Me and his mom are very close and she told me the same thing. How do I go about this. I love him and I’m not ready to give up on what we had.

    Its been 3 months since the breakup. We were together ant 1.5 yrs in a commuting ldr.

    After a month of nc I established contact but he said he needs more time. Then a week later I accidentally slipped and texted him an emoji (designed in our chat – Inside joke). And he responded well. I tried to communicate since he responded in a very good manner. But it seems he have a pattern of replying every 5 days and after a month plus I feel like he was kinda cold (compared to how responsive he was). And then he told me hes still furious at me at even the thought of talking to me.

    It really shot me down. But I told him I understand it takes time. And its been 2 weeks since.

    Ive tried to talk abt things he enjoys doing and ive been really working on myself. Back to my daily yoga and been trying to stay positive. I listed down things that went wrong and have tried to improve on it.

    Since the breakup both of us had been mia on social media. But once my gf tagged me on a photo and I saw he reacted (I think!) as he hid all his photos on fb.

    I feel a bit stuck here in the planning department and am not sure how to go from here. Do I text him? And if so how do I start? Any advice is appreciated.

      The bad thing is it looks like it’s obvious that you want him back and at this point, you should move on because if he really wanted to work it out, he already did.. The only chance I can see is to let him initiate for a month, while you continue being active in your life and start being very active in posting.. If it doesn’t progress within the month, move on.

    I broke up with my ex 6months ago. For the first few months he tried to win me back. Then I started arguing and fighting with him over everything. I refused to make it possible to be together. A month ago we decided to try to work it out. I constantly told him he wasn’t trying enough. Now he’s talking to another girl in a different state. He says hes done trying and I’ll never change and he can’t see a relationship with me because I won’t make him happy he’s only been talking to the new girl for 3days. I did the typical begging and crying and he still won’t budge. We have two kids together and still live together. He says he still loves and cares about me but he’s not in love with me. I know I pushed him away and I really want to fix the situation. We we’re together for over 4years. He’s tired of trying and getting the same results. I really need some help on this whole mess.

    Me and my ex were together for almost 3 years. Over that time he broke up with me but would come back the next day saying he regretted his decision (most of the time it was due to fights). The last couple of months have been difficult. He started playing footy which required him to train every week night and he also works full time crazy hours. We live an hour away from each other also. Things used to be great but all of a sudden his priorities changed and he put after everything. He would tell me he just doesn’t have time etc. He ended things and then 3 days later came back saying that he just couldn’t stand being without me etc. For about a week and a half things were great and he was saying how much he missed me and wants to work things out. Then all of a sudden we had a small disagreement and things changed. He started to ignore me which made me stress and continue contacting him but that only pushed him further away. He contacted me and said things arent working anymore and hes sorry he dragged me along but he just doesnt want a relationship anymore.

    It’s been 9 days since we last spoke and things ended. He blocked me on facebook but still follows me on Instagram and has been watching my stories and all my friends (he never used to watch my friends stories). Is there hope of him coming back to me? Or is it over for good? Please give me advice.

      Hi,
      I think he got tired but that doesn’t mean chasing is better than doing nc.

    I think that my chances are at about 0%… Me and my ex were together for about 3 years, we broke up around 1-2 months ago. It was not our first break up. We broker up before, when I , out of anger threw him out of the house due to his lies. We had several month of seeing each other, on and off, before we moved in again. When that happened, he started studing, meet new people, startet going out more to the clubs and bar, while I was sitting at home waiting for him, for hours. I got jealos, insecure which caused fights. I was trying to expain my point of view and so did he, but we did not understand each other.
    The day we broke up, was the day when I passed a very important exam and wanted to celebrate with him, but he was at the bar eith his friends… and it was just too much for me.
    We bearly spoke duing those 1-2 months we are broken up, and when we did, it was mainly about the apartment. I do miss him and would try to work things out. He said he was not intered in it, shortly after we broke up. So after a month has passed, I asked him for help getting with teaching me how to fish (he loves fishing, I was never into it) claiming that I am going to participate in a fishing competition at work. At fisr he said yes, but when I texted him some days later asking when he would have the time, he told me that ” he has a new life, is not intersted in teaching me how to fish and that I should find someone else to do it “. I think that he can feel I want him back… and I DO, at least I want to try. IS there ahything else I can do and not seem desperate ??

      Hi Olga,

      If you meant that was nc, restart it..do at least 45 days. Be active in improving yourself, in posting in social media and then continue doing that after nc while slowly building rapport through texts firt and then calls and then meet ups..

    My ex and I broke up last Wednesday. We were together for almost 10 months. When he broke up with me he told me that he wanted to break up with because things were always going to be the same and we were always going to end up fighting. During our last month’s we fought alot cause we didn’t see each other much and he always went out with his friends. A week before he broke up with me I was actually the one who told him we should break up but then u told me that he didn’t want to lose me and that he loved me. Having heard that my hopes for our relationship rose again and I was happy. Then the week after he breaks up with me. I asked why and he said it would be difficult and that he’s not ready for a relationship. I begged him and cried he wouldn’t changed his mind. I asked him if there was someone else he liked, a couple of times he said no but after me annoying him a bit more he said yes. I know the girl and I know she’s not his type but he told me that he likea her alot. We talked on the phone last night and I asked him if he loved her. He said no but he really likes her. He told me he isn’t sure if she likes him back. I asked him if he still wanted to have sex and he said ok. I asked him if he still had feelings for me and he said yes but I don’t know if I should believe him since yesterday I stopped begging him ti get back together with him cause he threatened to block me. He was really mean when I was annoying him but when we talks on the phone he said sorry to me. He talked to me about her and I could hear in his voice that he really liked her. The way he talked about her. She’s younger than us…
    I told him that even though I still loved him I wanted him to be happy. And he said thanks. Then when we hung up he said goodnight and love you and I said love you too. I was going to start the No Contact rule today but i texted him telling him we needed to talk. He said ” I’ll let you know” . I wanted to tell him tonight that I couldnt be just friends or friends with benefits and that I still had feelings for him so it was best if we forgot each other for a while. Deep down o want to tell him thag cause im hoping he stops me from doing it but I know he won’t.
    What should I Do? I still love him and I want him back but I’m scared of I do the No contact rule he’s going to end up with her. I don’t want him to leave me for her or anyone else.PLEASE HELP.

    How do you build and present a ridiculous offer to someone who won’t speak to you?

    I dated a guy for 7 weeks – it was eerily fast and comfortable because we already did have the same outlook on life, interests, dreams, etc. I screwed it all up though because the speed that we became close triggered memories of my last relationship, with a man who contacted me months after I finally got away from him to tell me he’s a sociopath. It was very abusive. I lashed out at the new guy almost disassociating like he was the old guy. We stopped talking the first time for a few days but then I explained to him my past and he told me his (ex with a severe mental illness that he was abused too).

    Anyway after spending an amazing weekend together, he asked for space to think about if he wanted to continue on as we are long distance (but in constant contact, Skyping, etc and we were both willing and able to travel) and I freaked out on him again. It got nasty on my end – he remained a gentleman but eventually completely cut off contact.

    I spoke to him two days ago and he said he was wounded and needs space and for me to let him go for a while. I said i would do that but I also needed to be let go too if that’s what he wanted. He said he is too upset to say what he wants but if/when he decides he will reach out and apologized for not having a more clear answer.

    So I can’t speak to him at all, I have to wait for him to make contact, and he may never again. How do you do this then?

    We we’re so close and so perfect together, we both have so many odd similarities and we both felt like we’ve always known each other. But I screwed it up and I’ve never been so angry at myself. I’m focusing on working on these issues I realize are still here from my last relationship but it’s hard to accept that I can’t fix this, too. I miss him so much.

      Hi Delaney,

      He probably expects you to still initiate within the month. Don’t. Start the nc rule instead. Do at least 30 days. If he initiates in it, don’t reply. Initiate after 30 days. Be active in improving yourself and in posting in social media during and after nc.

    My ex & I have been with each other for 1 yr & 4 months. We broke up for constant misunderstanding each other. We last got in a huge argument where we both said horrible things. He gave me mixed signals about our future since we are still in high school. I didn’t want to be lead on to false hope so I approached him often to try to figure out if he truly meant after high school we would try again. &’ from there he would avoid me cold turkey so I approached him again and I got him to ” be honest ” he told me he didn’t want me in his life and that he didn’t love me. That we would never be togheter again. I got him to be friends but that didn’t last. I knew he didn’t want to be friends so I let him go , a week passes of me letting him go and he blocks me from the only social media I have and I’m not sure why he blocked me if I had not contacted him for 6 days. All I did was make my account public. Before he blocked me my friend told me he freaked out when I passed by and a girl was playing with his hair being flirty. I had thought to myself why he reacted that way if he made it clear that he didn’t want me.Today marks 15 days from the NC and he is back to being Cold turkey again with me and I am still blocked. High school will be over in 4 months and I feel that I am running out of time to get him back. I am in love and I am now a stable positive woman who is ready to take my ex back and built a healthy loving relationship. I don’t know how I can possibly get him back. I have been improving on myself since the NC purposes. I still have 2 of his family members on my social media who have not shut me out. Please help me.

    I was recently on your site and purchased the ex boyfriend recovery pro book and watched one of your webinars and I’d really like some support and guidance on how to get my ex back, it’s been about 2 months since we broke up and I feel I’ve tried everything with no success so I’m wondering if your method would still work after this long? We still have been in touch since we broke up because he wasn’t sure what he wanted and we tried to sort the problems that were causing some arguments but I couldn’t shift his decision. Up until last week he had been unsure but now it is a straight no. He said his mind has changed about us, he just doesn’t see us anymore, and is wanting to move on. He even went as far as saying he doesn’t miss what we had together. He won’t reach out and message me unless I do it first then stops talking mid conversation. I’m scared the no contact rule will not work and he will move on like he says he wants to during that time period. I desperately just want him back and us to be happy again. Could you help me out?

    Thanks
    (Was in a relationship for 18months)

    I did the no contact for almost 60 days. he contacted me but after building rapport and hanging out I pressured him way too much to define the relationship and now he said he doesn’t want to try. He told me he loves me but he does not want to try. He wants me to be friends with him but I’m so in love with him I don’t want to be friends. I still want him back, should I just move on or try no contact again and start all over again? It feels like a second a major break up.

      slowly rebuild rapport instead of restarting nc.
