You need to give yourself some space to process what has happened. Your ex is asking you to stay in touch for her benefit, not yours. She is essentially playing the 'friends' card and, in doing so, is keeping her options open. Remember, most cheaters don't regret the cheating, they just regret getting caught.
Follow the no contact rule for 30 days then assess how you feel about your ex then. I'm not advocating that you don't forgive your ex, but you do need to set boundaries and ask yourself if you deserve to be treated with more respect.
I have been in a long distant relationship for a year and a half. There has been a lot of arguing and making up. Just over a week ago, he broke up with me because I’m not ready to move in with him, and I don't believe our relationship is strong enough either. I haven’t seen him for over three weeks. He broke it off in a text. Should I contact him to see if he will even talk to me?
I have six kids with my ex, and we had been together for twenty years. He went straight into a new relationship with another woman the day he left me. It's only been two weeks since this happened, and I can't even think about the no contact rule. I know we won't get back together, but I still need to see and call him. How can I start the no contact rule in my situation?
My girlfriend and I broke up after nine years. Her family did not like me. The relationship went downhill fast, once we got engaged, eight months prior to the breakup. I was verbally abusive as I tried to push her away. I screwed up and made every breakup mistake possible, including yelling and cursing at her whole family. She was barely responding to me, so I started the no contact rule seven days ago. I've heard nothing from her yet. Do I have a chance getting her back?
