Comment on My Ex Will Not Talk To Me – What Do I Do? by Love Doctor, Yangki Akiteng.

YES. Truthful and honest is always best, but be smart about it.

Something like, “I’d be lying if I said I don’t want you back but I have to be real with myself. I’m still working on making myself a better person. I’ve made so many mistakes in the past and look where it got me. So if you are okay with us just talking for now, it’d mean a lot to me. If it leads to something more, that’d be great. If it doesn’t, I’ll accept it. Let’s just see where things go without trying to make anything happen…” (make sure you rephrase it in better english… 😉

That’s the easy part. The hard part is walking the talk.

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.

And you’re right, there is no such a thing as a perfect relationship, but there are relationships that are close to perfect.

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.

Help! My Ex Does Not ‘NEED’ Me Anymore (Toxic Caretaking)
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.
