“You have to cut off all contact and stay away from your ex”, said one of my friend’s who was trying to help me get past my recent breakup. In theory, this sounds so easy; but in reality your fingers want to waltz in direction of your ex number phone number!

Some of these may sound a bit too extreme for you. It all depends on the sort of breakup you had. If the breakup was a mutual understanding, and you have no problems withing in contact with your ex, then I doubt that all this is needed.

  2. Gunasekaran says:


    My girl friend leave me one month back i cannot live without her…

    i need ur advice..

  3. I broke up with my abusive boyfriend 4 months ago. I deleted and blocked his phone numbers from my phones, blocked his emails, blocked him on facebook, and then ended up putting a restraining order on him because he was harassing me and vandalized my property.

    Guys and gals, my word of advice to you is to NOT sell yourself short. If you’re in an abusive relationship, or with a partner who is emotionally unavailable (married, have ties with exes) get out.

    Discover your personal values, self worth, work on your self esteem. Heal emotionally. Then you will find the right one for you.

    To Yanti,

    Get a life, thinking about him make you more to want him, get real and talk to your friends or relative the more you talk to them make you feel better, this is what i do, hang around with them and make yourself busy, you desrved better.

    To gunasekaran,

    time will heal, it take’s more than that but you have to make yourself busy and meet new friends, she’s not the only fish in the sea, write down the positive and negative of your relationship and try to think if it’s really spending time with her….goodluck
