Comment on Cool Off Period Vs No Contact (Self-Preservation Vs Relationship) by Love Doctor, Yangki Akiteng.
Yes. 2 months is a very long time for “cool off period”. This is more (as you mentioned) a “forced no contact” situation, in which he is the one doing ‘no contact’ and you are respecting his wish.
If he specifically said September and you agreed to it, it will not reflect well on you to break that ‘agreement’.
In my Dating Your Ex book, I recommend trying to negotiate ‘forced no contact’ (also see article: ‘Force No Contact’ – What To Do When Your Ex Wants ‘No Contact’).
Sometimes an ex will tell you it’s okay to reach out once in a while (or give you specific situations and/or how many times a week). It seems that this is not what happened in you case, so wait until September.
