Dating a prideful man
Having failed at every relationship I've ever been in, I certainly don’t know the key to having a successful one.
I do however, know a thing or two about having a broken heart.
Most relationship experts will tell you to go NC for at least 30 days.
The theory behind that is it takes at least 30 days to gain some distance and perspective.
Having sex with him isn't going to make him want you back, guys are surprisingly good at just having sex even if it's with someone they once cared about.
If hooking up with him isn't going to make him want you back, texting him def won't.
I’m sure they will be more than happy to support NC.
NC with someone you love is one of the hardest things a person can do. Once you make it to 15 days, reward yourself with a mani/pedi.
Whether you are implementing NC because you want him back or because you truly want to get over him, you need a solid month before either of those things are possible (unless he quickly realizes on his own that he made the biggest mistake of his life).During this time you are not allowed to see him, text him, email him, or even like his Facebook status (I don’t care if it says he rescued ten puppies from Africa). Even if it’s his birthday, or your birthday, or his grandma’s birthday. This person quickly went from being the center of your universe to not being in your universe at all and that is a huge and awful adjustment. But I will say NC isn't just something I preach, it is something I actually practice (in fact, today marks 30 days of NC for me and the guy who broke my heart on NYE!The only exceptions to this are if you work together or share a child in which case all you can do is limit your contact to the absolute minimum and keep it strictly business. This guy was your best friend, you told him everything and the thought of not talking him makes you actually want to die. Not like I'm counting or anything.) It is the best thing you can do for yourself and during this gut-wrenching time you need to do things for yourself.Either he will miss you and come back or you will get over it and move on.Either of those things are possible (though the latter is probably more likely), but neither will happen if your ex is still in your life.
