Many songs are written about the beauty of love and many are written about the heart break when love ends. When you met your ex boyfriend, it was beautiful. But now that he needs a break, you feel the heart break. You never thought this would happen. Instead of the bright future you had anticipated, your world is falling apart. But you do not have to lose the man you love forever. When your ex boyfriend told you he needed a break, it could have meant several things. Your girlfriends will tell you that he is falling so deeply in love with you that he needs time to think. Your family will tell you not to get your hopes up because he has broken up with you.
Which ever the case may be, you cannot be calling him and asking him his reasons. You have to treat it as a breakup because if he is not dating you anymore that is what it is. Since he has made it plain that he wants a break, give him all the break he needs and wish him luck. Do not call him, email or text message him. You can show him by your actions. Have no contact with him at all. Ignore him and appear to be accepting the breakup and moving on. This will not be what your ex will be expecting.
Your ex boyfriend is expecting you to fight tooth and nail to get him back. He also was hoping that by being gentle and telling you he wanted a break, you would be waiting. Men do this when they want to have some freedom from a relationship to check out the field and see what they might be missing. But he will want to have you on hold, so if things do not work out, he has you in reserve. This is a good situation for him, but a bad one for you and to get your ex back you cannot allow it to happen.
By not trying to get him back, you will get his attention. Your ex will wonder if you still care for him, and since he does not want to lose you, he will be concerned. This will make him want to contact you and see where things stand, so he will send an email. He will just ask you how you are doing, but he has a reason behind this action. Your ex boyfriend wants to see how fast you will answer him. If you answer right away, he will know that you have been anxious to hear from him. This will mean that he can take his time about getting back with you.
Do not answer his email, and he will call. When he asks you how things are going, tell him you have been having a great time. You can add that you hate to cut the call short, but you were just going out the door. If he asks you where you are going, be vague and just say you are meeting some people. This will serve warning that he might lose you for good and your ex boyfriend will feel that break time is over.
