Rules dating mates ex
I know this goes against every Hallmark card you’ve ever read about “soul mates” and “finding your other half,” but in today’s instantly gratifying world, we all need our own lives, interests, goals and ambitions to offer into a union.
NEWSFLASH: Losing him may be the best thing that’s ever happened to you, or in the very least, if you two find you cannot live without each other, he will come crawling back with more respect, devotion and perspective than ever before.This is the time to delete his number, or save it under something like, “DON’T,” and do not text, call, send smoke signals or message him on any social media.You made a choice to leave the relationship, and it’s important you remember why you decided this.That being said, BE HONEST with yourself, and if you are only calling to try to hear if there are girls in the background, or wait until he suggests a date spot or to cry hysterically and beg him to say all the right things to make your tears rest, then STOP right where you are and smash your phone against the wall because you’re being crazy.Trust the person you’re with and the choice you’ve made in being with him. More importantly, if you’ve already told him you’re leaving, stay gone.Be honest with yourself and text the “most perfect quote that totally describes what you’re feeling” to your best friend instead.
The key to making him miss you, is to be gone and busy, and living your amazing life without him.
Ask what’s going on, or why he’s been distant and listen to the answer, taking real cues from what he says. Suggest a fun date night, or weekend away to get his mind off things.
If he can’t give you a direct answer, his distance may be directly related to you and doubts he’s having about you two getting close. If anything, he’s just being cautious or needs some space to see what’s next for him in this union.
It’s responsible, polite and keeps your calendar orderly.
You are by no way bound by a list of “rules” as to how many days to wait to call, or any nonsense about how the man should always call first.
Except for extreme, egotistical players, a man generally means what he says.
