Comment on Can A Relationship Still Work If Your Ex Does’t Change? by Love Doctor, Yangki C. Akiteng.

I’m sorry things have taken this turn. First of all, you are right about the other person wanting to change too. There are however times when the other person thinks he/she doesn’t need to change (most of us don’t want to change), but because the relationship means so much to them, they’ll be “open’ to trying the the new dynamic and in many cases are (indirectly) changed by it.

I have also seen cases where the person who changed changed so much or changed aspects of themselves that were not an issue with an ex (may be even was what their ex loved about her/him) that the chemistry and compatibility that first drew two people together is forever lost.

Some people got back together and others didn’t. The troubling part about your case is that he has cut off all contact. The lines of communication are blocked and all you can do at this point is wait for him to reach out to you.

It’s always heart-warming to read stories like yours, and I accept the thanks. But as they say, any advice is only as good as the person using it. You made it happen for you.

I am happy for you! All the VERY best.


Who Should Initiate Contact – Dumper Or Dumpee?
Doing right towards each other is a testament to your love and to the level of personal growth you’ve both achieved. I hope that you’ll both attract someone radiating at the same level of maturity. Much respect!


Who Should Initiate Contact – Dumper Or Dumpee?
I see your point, but what if she doesn’t come to you, then what?

Your relationship definitely needs to change, but it’s not going to change just because you change who reaches out first and/or tries to make things work.


What to Do When Your Ex Sends Mixed Signals
I am glad to be of some help.

I hope all goes well.


What Not To Do When Your Ex Wants Space
You will not be disrespecting her request because you are not asking her to get back into the relationship/be a couple. Her request was not to stop contacting her but to give her space away from the relationship so she can grow as a person.

So go ahead and initiate contact while keeping her request in mind. The worst thing that can happen to a relationship is that two people take a break with the intention of creating a better relationship, only to regroup and things are the same, or worse, there is no relationship.
