After a breakup where you were the one who was broken up with, I almost always suggest using the No Contact Rule.
It’s the mature thing to do simply because you are not attempting to force your way to where you are no longer welcome.
What’s interesting is that it’s also one of the best – if not the best – things that you can do to re-attract your ex if that is what you want. That doesn’t mean it’s not without pitfalls and setbacks.
In this video (SUBSCRIBE to my channel), I discuss what to do when the No Contact Rule works, as it very often does, and your ex reaches out to you.
People often feel elated but then wonder what they should do now that their ex has reached out (usually with a text message).
I go into those details and some other considerations in the video above and I suggest that you watch it all the way through twice so that you will easily be able to remember some of these things when the time comes for their use.
Remember that just because your ex is reaching out now doesn’t mean that it will all be smooth sailing.
There are still things to consider, human nature to understand, and actions you need to be cautious of based on my two decades in the relationship-coaching service of observing breakups and reunions.
One hint is that just as your first reactions often harm your chances immediately following the breakup, your instincts often betray you when your ex reaches out as well.
That’s why it’s so important to take your time to understand and absorb the content of the video in this post.

I truly wish you the best.
I talk about more details like this in my Emergency Breakup Kit, including how to handle requests for meet ups, what to do when you see them face to face, whether or not you should suggest it, etc.
