Can’t Stop Breaking No Contact?: Get My Private Method Here

No Contact is tough. Even for old-timers like me who have gone through the No Contact Rule countless times, it never gets easy. The simple fact is that you are trying to leave behind someone that was once a big part of your life. For many of us, your ex was probably the love of your life.

You probably know that it’s best to let go and move on. It’s time to heal. In the back of your mind, you’re wondering if your ex misses you and wants to get back together.

How long does it take for an ex to miss you with No Contact?

In general, I would say 30 days. Usually, after a couple of weeks to cool off from the breakup, people tend to start missing what they’ve lost. Even if your ex broke up with him, he might be thinking twice about his decision after spending a few weeks without you.

But don’t get your hopes up. Even if your ex shows signs that he misses you during No Contact, it doesn’t mean he wants to get back together. So if your ex-boyfriend suddenly reaches out to you during silent treatment, it’s best to ignore him while you focus on your healing. Consider him a toxic person during your 30 Day No Contact Rule regimen.

Don’t let your ex disrupt your recovery by accepting his text or spending a few minutes on the phone to help him work through his feelings.

How Long Does It Take For Your Ex To Miss You During No Contact?

In general, it will take about 30 days for your ex to show signs that he misses you during no contact. But don’t expect your ex to knock on your door when 30 days are up. First, this is an average figure of 3-8 weeks that I’ve learned working with many people and their relationships. This figure will be different for you depending on your relationship with your ex.

Second, even though your ex misses you during No Contact, it doesn’t mean that he wants to get back together. I know you may be hoping for that moment your ex calls you and begs for a second chance. Trust me, the chances of him wanting to get back with you during the No Contact period are small. 

Your ex is most likely trying to work through his emotions and find ways to cope with your absence. He’s missing the intimacy and the idea of having someone around. For some guys, they think contacting you will help with their healing process. Maybe a short phone call will help them get through the emotional pain, but this false sense of hope will break your recovery process and lead you down a rabbit hole.

For now, give your ex a bit of space to absorb the feeling of loss. Be selfish and focus on yourself for the next 30 days. I know the No Contact Rule is a torturous process. But it’s a practical move that works to help you get over the breakup in the best way possible.

Your ex will miss you during No Contact. He will reach out. The question is, how will you respond?

Will no contact make him move on?

One of the goals of the No Contact Rule is to help the person move on. This is the desired result to help you and your ex get over the breakup and reflect on your failed relationship. Both of you are trying to understand what went wrong and move on from your mistakes.

But you’re probably hoping that your ex-boyfriend doesn’t move on, right? You’re betting that your ex starts to realize what he’s missing out on and that a no-contact break will make him change his mind. Unfortunately, that usually doesn’t happen. Your ex may start to miss you after a couple of weeks, but getting back together is not on his agenda.

In fact, allowing your ex-boyfriend to move from a bad relationship is the correct way to get him back. You have to give each other time and space to learn from the previous relationship and grow to become a better person.

I know it sounds risky. But a couple of weeks apart isn’t going to solve the underlying problems that caused your relationship to fail. 

It’s all part of the healing process, which starts by focusing on yourself and becoming an ungettable girl.

Will My Ex Forget About Me During No Contact?

No, your ex is not going to forget you during No Contact. Especially when you two had a long-term relationship, it’s not that easy to erase someone from their memory. You have been a big part of your ex’s life and made a huge impact on the person he is today. It’s uncommon for someone to forget an influential person in a couple of weeks.

Even if your ex seems like he’s moving on, it’s doesn’t mean that he’s forgotten about you. It only means that he’s working on his coping mechanism to deal with the breakup.

If you see him having fun with his friends or he’s posting a new lifestyle on Facebook, keep him that it’s his way of recovering from the breakup. Give him space to work out his emotional pain.
I know it’s hard to stop thinking about your ex during No Contact. It’s hard to resist and wonder what your ex is up to and how he is doing. I get it. But spending time thinking about your ex-boyfriend is unproductive and will only slow down your healing process. It makes the silent treatment ineffective as you give more power to your ex by thinking about him.

If you’re in the middle of the No Contact Rule, you need to find distractions and other activities to focus on. Get out and live your life!

Does no contact help your ex move on?

In most cases, your ex will move on from No Contact. I know it’s not exactly what you want to hear. But if your ex broke up with you, the reality is that he checked out the door way before the breakup. Once your relationship is officially over, No Contact becomes a period for your ex to deal with real life without you.

He’s still dealing with his emotions and learning to live on his own. But as a dumper, your former flame has already made up his mind and prepared to move on. The truth is, there’s no stopping your ex-boyfriend from changing his mind, especially during this period of time when you are going through a tsunami of emotional pain. Whatever you say will only come off as desperate, needy, and clingy.

My best advice is to leave your ex alone. Let him move on and do his thing. Chances are, your ex wants to break up because he needs some freedom to help him achieve his personal goals.

How Do You Know If Your Ex Misses You During No Contact?

The good news is that your ex will most likely miss you during no contact. He will try to reach out to you to see how you’re doing.

But here’s the bad news. It would be best if you ignored that temptation to give in to your ex. Don’t let him break your silent treatment and give him the power to divide your attention. The tactics your ex uses to reach out will benefit his healing process.

Keep in mind that your ex-boyfriend is also dealing with emotional pain. It’s not easy for him, too, as he needs to find ways to adjust to a new lifestyle. You used to be a significant presence in their life and was always there for important occasions. You were his best friend, who he trusted with his deepest secrets.

Rest assured that your ex misses you during the first few weeks or months of the separation. 

How do I know if my ex misses me?

Several ways indicate your ex is missing you. These may be direct signs like your ex calling you late at night or indirect signs that you can assume you’re still on your ex’s mind. Trust me, it’s not easy for your ex to take you off his mind. You used to be his best friend who revolved around his life and all the decisions he’s made. It’s hard for someone to turn cold turkey on a person who has been there for them and shared many moments together.

Here are some ways to know if your ex misses you.

Your ex buys coffee somewhere else.

Your ex misses you so much that he’s unable to frequent the same coffee shop you two used to go. Just passing by the shop brings up so many emotions and memories of the good old day. It’s not just the coffee shop, it could also be the same route you two used to take. If you don’t see your ex around the place you used to go together, chances are your ex is trying to avoid getting flustered from thinking about you.

Your Ex breaks the No Contact Rule.

It’s hard for your ex too. Even if he broke up with you, the feeling of actually losing you overwhelms your ex. Regardless of whether he wants to get back together or not, your ex may reach out to you with the sole purpose of relieving his emotional pain. He wants to hear your voice, say sweet things, and see if he can feel a little better.

Don’t take the bait! Chances are your ex doesn’t know what he wants by reaching out to you. By responding to his text, you are only breaking your recovery process and giving your ex the power to control you.

Don’t break your No Contact. It only shows that you’re stronger than your ex.

Your Ex is moving on FAST.

Your ex is posting excessively on his Facebook feed. He’s trying (way too hard) to prove that he’s happy with his newfound single life. Maybe he’s got himself in a rebound relationship and relentlessly shows off his moments with his new partner.

When someone is trying too hard, you know they are faking it. In this case, your ex is masking his emotions to show that he’s over you. But the reality is that he doesn’t have control of his feelings towards you. He trying to move on too fast and being too loud with his actions to “prove” that he’s over you.
