I've done this and it blew up in my face even worse than the first time. I guess that influences my firm belief that an ex is an ex for a reason! I'll never again reconcile with an ex. Ever.

Most of the time, that isn't a bad thing in the long run.

To the folks going through an unwanted breakup: Please understand that these stories are the exception to the rule, and you'll do yourself more harm than good hoping against hope that you too will be one of these exceptions. Do your future self a favor and accept that your relationship is most likely done for good and that you cannot truly heal until you accept that.

I didn't want my break up either. The only thing I advised here was to never look back and move on with your life, you can clearly read that. I did not title my post "How to get your ex back", it's about my experience with no contact and as I've clearly stated in the post itself, I suggested to never do no contact to get an ex back, and to never sit around and wait for them.

If anyone (including you) takes it the way that "Oh I should to this to get my ex back", that is not what I suggested. That is just the way you want to see it.

Why have to bend my story into a different one, when it obviously wasn't advising to A) even think about getting your ex back B) wait for them or C) not think your love story is always an exception.
