Comment on How Long After A Break-Up Will It Take To Get My Ex Back? by AlexK.

Thanks, Yangki. Lately I’ve tried to take a bit of a step back and let the contact happen more on his schedule, but your comment about how just ‘hanging in there’ can make things worse has me worried.

So far I’ve tried to focus on making myself better, keeping the connection alive, having fun together and trying to have more open communication, but maybe that’s not enough? How do I find a balance between being hopeful for a future with him but also being at peace with the possibility that it may not happen?

How Long After A Break-Up Will It Take To Get My Ex Back?
Thank you for your article, Yangki. Each time I feel anxious or hopeless I read some of your words and it helps me to relax and feel more at peace. I find it hard not to get discouraged when it feels like the progress I’ve made with my ex is undone–things will get better between us, he opens up a bit more and is communicative, but then regresses into acting arrogant and dismissive when we talk (although he does still contact me regularly). It makes it hard to put myself out there when I feel rejected by him. I know from your articles that some push and pull is normal, and I try to remain positive and not engage in the game playing, but after months of this behaviour it gets to be draining and I start to feel discouraged. Do you have any suggestions?
