Why Does He Keep Coming Back Only to Leave Again? appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise
Why does he keep coming back only to leave again? When you broke up, you were devastated. You didn’t know how to handle it, and wondered how you would move on. You tried to think of ways you could have prevented the break up and/or were frustrated that your ex didn’t do all they could to save your relationship.
You missed him every day, and found it very hard to get through your day. You couldn’t think straight, you couldn’t function properly, and forget about getting a good nights sleep. You truly grieved the ending of your relationship and tried to move on. (Even if you didn’t want to.)
But then your ex came back. He may have contacted you with an attempt to reconcile or just used a stupid reason to break the ice. You don’t care what method he used to come back, you are just glad he did. You feel as though you learned some things, and you hope..Read More
If You’re Not Interested in Him, Here’s What To Do appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise
What should you do when you are not interested someone? Depending on the situation, there are right ways and wrong ways of handling it. If someone is expressing an interest in dating you but you are not interested in them you can try to give them hints before they make their move. You bring up things like “I am not ready to date anyone right now” or “I am happy being single” in conversation. You can also pretend to be in a relationship with someone.
But what if they ask you out anyway? Well, if they didn’t take the hint still try to let them down gently, but firmly. No one really wants to hurt someones feelings and some people have a hard time rejecting someone for fear of doing just that. It is worse to lead them on or give them false hope. If you don’t want to hurt their feelings just tell them it is not about them. You could say you are not r..Read More
He Made Contact After Ghosting Me, Now What? appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise
He made contact after ghosting you, so now what do you do? When he suddenly dropped off the face of the earth you went through every emotion imaginable. You worried that maybe you said something wrong and rack you brain wondering what it was. You go over every conversation you had again and again wondering what you could have said that made him not speak to you again.
You get angry that they have not answered when you called and won’t answer your texts. It hurt your feelings when they blocked you on social media. You lost sleep wondering what the hell happened. You could barely think of anything else because him ghosting you made no sense and was not fair at all. You wish he would tell you why instead of being so silent. You feel you deserve an explanation for treating you like dirt. You didn’t know when or if you could move on because you didn’t know..Read More
On-Off Relationships appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise
Have you found yourself in an on-off relationship and wonder how it came to this? Does your relationship status constantly change so often no one takes it seriously? When you tell your closest friends and family members they never take your break ups seriously because they think you are going to get back together at some point?
On-off relationships are embarrassing to say the least. Adults are supposed to have mature relationships, and on-off relationships are far from mature. They are full of drama, have no stability, and one member of the couple is suffering horribly (sometimes both). One of them may actually thrive on this kind of relationship. Most people don’t understand on-off relationships and wouldn’t want one in the first place. Your friends and family wind up seriously disliking the one you love, and you really can’t blame them for it. You can’t blame them for gett..Read More
