Comment on Signs You’re Making Progress With Your Ex by Love Doctor Yangki Akiteng.

Saying ” I’m sure everything will be OK” to an emotional bid for connection isn’t following my advice or book. Even to someone who isn’t feeling depressed, that is a point of emotional disconnection. I want to think that I’ve done a better job at explaining “emotional connection” than “I’m sure everything will be OK”.

You also must have read in the book that sometimes it can feel like a dance of one step forward and two steps back. You don’t just change strategy because you were taken back a step or two.

I suggest you re-read the sections on: ‘Do You Need A New Strategy?’ and ‘Strategic Thinking, Tactical Action’ before you do anything to undo any progress you might have made. Also get the ‘bids” and ’emotional connection’ part right, I don’t think you are doing it the right way.

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.

I am glad to be of some help.

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.
