I broke up with my boyfriend a few days ago. I didn't have any intention of breaking up with him, but he had been secretly seeing and texting another woman. This makes me feel insecure, and I really want him to commit to our relationship and minimize contact with these other women. I even asked him to put our photo in WhatsApp to reassure me, but he simply ignored me. What should I do? Should I implement the no-contact rule? I am totally lost.
You don't say how long you were together, but it is clear that you want to be in an exclusive relationship, whereas your ex does not. He's not ready to commit and you need to accept this. If you don't, you will continue to feel insecure and potentially worthless.
Your ex is neither ready nor willing to give you what you want. Use the no-contact rule to rebuild your self-esteem. In time, you will find someone who is worthy of your love.
