Is My Ex Girlfriend Really That Happy Without Me?

OK, so you’ve unfollowed, unfriended, or blocked your exgirlfriend on every possible front. You’ve successfully removed her from all of your feeds and have made it so she’s not popping up without warning every five seconds posing with her Mocha Frappuccino and declaring it a “Great day to be alive” or something equally annoying.

Don’t worry, you really don’t need to know what she had for dinner or what her “Outfit of The Day” was.

But we both know that removing her from your feeds won’t keep you from checking on her at some point or wondering what she’s up to.

Curiosity has a fairly strong pull, especially when you happen to have suddenly subtracted someone from your life that you had gotten used to having around.

My suggestion?

Fight the urge to check on her.

However, even if you have the strongest willpower in the world, I suspect you will end up looking at her social media or asking a friend about her at some point. It’s human nature to want to know that she’s missing you. And your paths are bound to cross again at some point, especially if you life in a small town or share the same group of friends.

But wait!

She’s posting happy pics of her and friends!

She’s doing great in school!

What If She Is With Some Other Dude?

She’s in better shape than you remember!

From where you’re sitting… it looks like she didn’t even miss a beat. She’s happy! She’s out enjoying life! She’s even posting about how great her Monday was! Now, that’s just uncalled for!

How is she so doing so well when you are feeling absolutely crummy?

It’s just not fair!

She has to be doing this to mess with you… right?

You are ALMOST completely right if that’s what you were thinking.

“But, Ashley, you don’t even know her… or me… what if she really is happier without me?”

Could she just be accepting the lemons she was handed and be making the best of the situation?  It’s possible.

But, if you step back and get a little perspective on things, you might see the truth.

No one likes to admit they’re having a tough time publicly unless they’re just looking to have a pity party.

So, it’s unlikely she would post that she’s having a hard time if she is actually having a hard time.

I can guarantee one thing above all others. Even if a breakup is in her best interest and you were the biggest jerk on the planet, there is some part of her that misses the relationship you had, even if it’s just one tiny aspect of the relationship.

Take it from someone whose breakups have almost ALWAYS been in her best interest and whose last ex was ACTUALLY the biggest jerk on the planet, me!

I knew both of these things, but it doesn’t keep me from occasionally missing our time together.

Sometimes, I miss teaming up against our friends on game night or being the only ones in our group of friends who knew what we were talking about when we nerded out over something completely stupid.

Sometimes, I’ll see or hear something that, back then, I would’ve told him about immediately, but now it would just be weird. I mean, it’s been almost a year and I still feel this way occasionally even though we’ve both moved on and I have NO intention of ever getting back together.

So, it’s likely that at some point she’ll check on you without you ever doing a single thing to instigate it.

How to Use This to Your Advantage

Well, in my experience, there are things that trigger these thoughts. Most of which require no action from my ex whatsoever.

In fact, the more my ex reaches out to me and tries to make me focus on him the more I realize how wrong he was for me and try to focus on literally ANYTHING else.

However, the more time that I would go without hearing from him, the more I wonder how things are going for him and what he was up to.

If you were together long enough to meet her friends and family, even if it was just a few months, then those people are likely going to bring you up as well. It’s been almost an entire year since I split with one of my exes and, even though she knows it was for the best, my mother still asks me what’s going on in his life and if he’s doing well.

Other people who knew us as a couple will ask invasive questions like,

“What ever happened to you and what’s-his-face?”

So, it’s a safe bet that at some point curiosity will get the better of her and she’ll come around to your Facebook or Instagram to see what you’ve been up to.

So, the way I see it, you have a few choices. You can throw a pity party and invite everyone you know to attend.

You can be mad at her for being happy and act like she’s some sort of traitor for moving forward with her life.

Or you can work hard to make sure that when she does eventually give into curiosity, and come around to see what you’ve been up to, she sees that you’ve done great things for yourself since you split.

I’ll give you two guesses as to which one is your best bet for getting what you want.

Why the First Two Options Don’t Work

Well, firstly, throwing a pity party doesn’t work in any situation because not only are you just making life much harder than it has to be for yourself, eventually your friends won’t want to attend the party anymore and it’ll be you… alone… being pitiful.

Secondly, being mad at her for not throwing herself a pity party is just silly. If you care, or ever cared, about her you should want her to be happy, even if it isn’t with you.

This is petty, selfish, and, if I may say, wildly unattractive.

There is no way anyone with an iota of self esteem would want someone in their life that treats them this way.


So, look at these two ways of dealing with this situation. What do they have in common?

Can you see it?

Here let me help you.

 


You have got to snap out of it.

You can’t be relying on your emotions to get you through this. While, yes, seeing a guys sensitive side is attractive at times, it’s not attractive when he can’t maintain his life when it comes down to it.

If you are blubbering and chasing after her trying to remind her of the good times, all she’ll picture when you aren’t around is this…

Do you think that’s attractive?

I mean yeah, it’ll make her feel good about herself for about a second, knowing that somewhere there’s a guy that she had THAT much of an effect on. But that is just feeding her ego. Guys like that are not who you get back together with.

So, how do you change direction?

Well, both of these tactics focus on one thing, trying to control things that are out of your control. If you take either one of these tactics then your perspective is outwards, focused on your ex and what is going on with her

I once had a US government teacher ask our class a question in High School while we were studying the Declaration of Independence. We had reached the line that begins, “We hold these truths to be self evident…”

I can’t remember the exact phrasing off the top of my head, and the phrasing really doesn’t pertain to the point I’m trying to make. But the gist is that this document was to ensure of of certain rights, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

So, my teacher asked our class of freshman, “where do your rights end and my rights begin?”

It was a simple question.

But we were kids, and it took us a minute to realize what she meant. Our rights ended at the point in which they infringe on someone else’s rights and vice versa.

Now, I’m not a history buff, but I understood that. There are some things in life we can’t control, like the way someone else reacts to certain circumstances. That is something that is true no matter what country you live in. You can’t FORCE your ex to miss you.

Sure, you can make her life miserable, whining in her general direction, but that won’t make her want you back. In fact it will most likely lead to her feeling bad for you. It might even make her downright hate you.

These two ways of dealing with your ex’s seemingly happy response to her newly found freedom keep you focused on the things you cannot control. That is why they will almost never work. I say almost because there’s always that one weirdo that does the impossible and makes the impossible happen. But 99.9% of the time, you will just push her further away and alienate yourself.

Make the Best of A Bad Situation

In order to make the best of the situation, you have to change your perspective on the situation.

I understand how you feel right now, like things have kind of gotten out of your control. As if there is no end in sight, at least not a favorable one. Well, that lies within the space that you find yourself where you’re loo king.

Acceptance

I know that I can’t avoid sounding like some camp group therapy leader when I say this, but here goes anyways. You have to accept this form of reality before you can do anything. Accepting the situation you’re in will help you adjust where your focus lands.

I once worked for a man who was part of a committee that was designing and building a new structure on our local campus.This means I had to sit through their committee meetings and take notes.

Now, the designs for this building were all agreed upon by the committee beforehand. However, the city had an issue with a load bearing wall that didn’t meet their requirements. This meant that the committee had to reconvene and come up with a solution for the issue.

The committee almost unanimously agreed that the removal of the fireplace in the wall was the only option. Mind you, I said ALMOST unanimously. There was one gentleman. I can’t remember his name, I think it was Bob.

Anyways, Bob insisted that instead of adjusting to make the town council happy. He would rather haggle with them and fight them on the issue. We wound up dragging out the whole process for months and months.

You see Plan A didn’t work out but Bob was convinced that A was the only way to go. He wouldn’t even consider any other plan.get

I feel like that’s how people tend to react when things don’t work out the way they expect in a relationship. They get stuck on what’s in their head and the way things were “supposed to be.”

So if you’re still hung up on what could have been, take a break.

 

 

Consider your other options, maybe a Plan B or C or Z. You get the idea.

Don’t pigeon-hole yourself into thinking A is the only way to go.

I think the best piece of advice anyone has ever told me was when I was little and I was reading a book that was absolutely awful. My grandmother asked me how it was. I told her it was good, but she knew. She knew! She looked at me and said, “Honey, you know you don’t ever have to finish anything you aren’t enjoying and that includes that book.”

So, I’m telling you the same thing right now. You don’t have to stick with something that isn’t working for you. and th
at means ditching plan A.

Just to clarify, plan A was the way you saw the relationship going before it wasn’t going anymore. Don’t worry you can circle back to that after No Contact, but for now come up with a new plan.

The New Plan

Okay, so in order to make the new plan work, you have to take your ex out of the equation. Don’t worry. After the new plan gets underway, your ex will wonder why you ever split up in the first place and will be begging to be added back in.

So, in order to take on a new plan, you need to figure out what you want to achieve with you new found freedom.

The most important thing is to do No Contact, not even eye contact…

The Benefit of Taking this Approach

Well, first of all, ruminating on unpleasant things is a complete waste of time. Instead, what I propose is to look at your life as if you are someone looking at it from the outside.

What you want to do is picture how you would want it to look if someone, say maybe… your ex or somebody else… who knows, were to take a look at it.

What you should do to make this work for you?

Okay, so think about how a magazine company works. If you are unaware, I’ll give you an idea.

They throw a lot of ideas out at their writers and send them out into the world to gather information.

So, they go out information gathering and gather it into something semi-presentable. Then, after that, every single one of them come back and throw what they’ve come up with onto a wall, where the editor can come in and pick and choose what she wants to include in that month’s issue.

After that, they all work together to make it into something worth publishing.

So, why in the heck am I rambling about magazine production?

Well, consider what you would would want that imaginary person from the outside to happen upon when she happens to let curiosity get the best of her and finds herself perusing your Facebook.

Wouldn’t it be much better if you took this chance to get everything “publisher ready?”

Visualize the ideal version of your life.

For me, that would mean taking that last class I need for my degree, and get the certifications I’ve been gunning for for a few years.

So, what would make your life ideal?

I can give you a few ideas so you’ll hit the ground running.

First of all, remove all of the elements of your life that cultivate negativity. That means a job you hate and all of your terrible vices… even if it’s just biting your nails.

Clean your living space. Remove anything that is junking up your space. Old receipts. Old magazines. Things you’ve been putting off, like returning or recycling your old phones. Put that stuff on Ebay that you have nothing to do with.

Basically, everything that could possibly be on your plate, get it done, do away with it, or put it on a list to work towards getting it done. You’re clearing your proverbial plate of anything that would be hanging over your head waiting for you to do it.

If you are having some difficulty dealing with emotional baggage from the relationship then I seriously suggest you talk to a professional to help you deal and clean your emotional plate to match your other plates.

Start eating healthier. If you still eat junk food, that’s fine. Just start drinking more water and eat the occasion vegetable. Exercising is a good idea as well, or at least doing something active. Be nice to your body. It’s kinda a big part of making things better, being aware of things like your help.

Learn from your past mistakes. I mean, think about it. As people, we tend to repeat our mistakes. Put a stop to it and cut mistakes short. Stop making the same mistakes over and over again.

Throw out stuff you don’t use like clothes that don’t fit anymore. Or in my case several pairs of shoes that I don’t wear… ever. You get the idea. You’re cleaning you life of clutter, and negativity. And you’re taking the bull by the horns and moving forward creating your ideal life.

Get back in touch with people that you’ve lost touch with. But only if they’re positive influences.

Find something that you take pride in and enjoy. I suppose this falls in with finding a hobby, but either way you should find something you care about. And don’t pretend to be someone you aren’t.

Bringing It Home

Don’t do this simply to shove your exes nose in it. That’s why you are supposed to cut her out of the process. Do it because it’s what’s best for you and I guarantee that your ex will take notice when she finally gets around to getting curious.

Don’t put your life on hold waiting for her to get familiar with her curiosity.

While you’re at it, just take pride in the fact that your life is better regardless of how long it takes her to give into that curiosity.

My girlfriend and I were together for a year and a half. We were very committed, very in love, and would always talk about our future. We ended up breaking up cause I wanted to take a break cause I felt I needed to spend some time being single ( we are in high school). I know, I was very stupid. She was very against it and when we did breakup, she agreed it was time but she was very upset and sad. After we broke up it was agreed that we would stay in touch and that I was… Read more »

Hi, I broke up with my girlfriend and told her that it was for being too cold in the relationship. She only did or say romantic stuff (hugs, kisses, holding hands, say I love you, etc.) when I did it first. And I got tired of it and then changed and I stopped doing those things, then she started complaining that I wasn’t romantic and attentive either. So I decided to break up because she was complaining to much for something she never did in the first place even when I did it, but because of her attitude I stopped… Read more »

Hi, so, my ex broke up with we like a week ago, but we were already in NC for 2 weeks before that because I was on a working trip and she decided to think wether to breakup or not during it. We were very happy until the half of May, when I got some serious family problems and a LOT of work to do, which fucked up with my mind and made it hard for me to interact with her. So she said that during that month she lost her attraction and no longer think we should be together.… Read more »

basically you just didnt talk before the break up but that’s not an nc if it was not really intentionally starting a no contact period.. because you had to talk to break up right? right now, start the count after the first day you stopped initiating and replying and be active in improving yourself and in posting in social media.

Me and my girl friend of 2 years broke up, and her reasoning was that I haven’t changed since the last time we broke up which was in January and I don’t take anything seriously. And I’m a truthful guy so I didn’t understand cause I didn’t think that I haven’t change or what not, we had our share of fights, or stupid Little fights, there was times when I wouldn’t be as romantic or do the “little things” she would say.

Hello, My exgirflriend and I were together for about 5 years and lived together 4 of those. She tried to break up with me a three times early on. First time cause I was a horn-dog and would be too touchy feely, second time because I lied about smoking weed, and third time because of general discontent with her happyness. That was in the first 3 years. Then we moved to WA to be closer to her family and because WA is awesome. We bought a house and were pretty much good for the first two years.

I don’t understand my ex behavior..

She broke up with me a month ago, general breakup (I was stage 5 clinger), she said she wanted to remain friends, I rejected. begged pleaded cried wrote love letter, didn’t work out, did 21 day NC and sent her a first contact text, she replied neutrally, wait a couple of days and sent her another one, replied neutrally again.

She never likes my instagram posts, no longer views my snapchat stories, before I finished NC she did view my snapchat stories

I have been in a relationship with a woman for about 14 months but we both had different lives and we’re seeing other people when we met… while our love blossomed and we enjoyed each other’s company (we used to work together) we no longer work together and she reports she has been feeling depressed. She is currently trying to kick out her boyfriend of 5 years. I want our friendship to blossom as well as our relationship. She contacts me less and less as I used to be a real GNAT at times but Ive calmed. Still though

Thank you for replying back…..so does this mean that i still have a chance to get her back? Or should i just move on and forget about her? I know you said that she just wanna see me change to a better person but then why she says that she does not love me anymore? That is the confusing part…..

EGR Team Member: Amor
Guest
EGR Team Member: Amor

If she doesn’t love you anymore, that doesn’t mean she wouldn’t wish you well and wouldn’t want better things for you… Whether you’re going to get her back or not, you have to change first. Once you have, decide from there if you still want to try with her..

Hi, My ex and I broke up 4 months ago (we dated for 2 years). Since then I have tried No Contact, but she was not interested in talking to me after the no contact period. I went no contact once again, after that period she asked me why I disappear and magically return, but she was not ready to “forgive” me. I had never cheated or lied to her. We broke up because we were fighting alot for the last little while of our relationship and I had accused her of cheating when she was faithful. (last contact was… Read more »

Hi Ramo,

the more you do nc, the less it can help but since she’s the one that doesn’t want to talk to you now, give it to her and wait for her to initiate and then slowly rebuild rapport from there.

a friend of mine told me that i should talk to her as friends and when the time feels right to arrange a meet up and let her know all my feelings because we had a problem with communication. that would prove to her that i’m now more open to talk and let her know my feelings but, in another sense it may make me look weak and disinterest her even more.

i just wanted to know your thoughts on that.

Sorry for being off topic, but I am currently in the no contact period, with my ex of 4 years. We broke up because I was basically a needy, dependant B*tch, but am slowly changing my behaviours, finding an improved decisive me. Anyway I am about two weeks in and haven’t heard from her (expected) but we previously booked a holiday but unfortunately we broke up and she is still going with a family member. I would really like to text her to say “have a good trip. Have fun and stay safe.” Should/could I break the no contact rule… Read more »

Sigh… I was just three days from 30 no contact and I passed my ex as I was driving. We looked at each other and made eye contact. We both looked surprised… What do I do? When Saturday comes, I was going to use the text “oh my gosh we passed each other today.”
“No we didn’t.”
“I’m sorry I guess I just think of you Everytime I pass a car like yours.”

Now I’m set back. Help how do I recover? Should I wait longer?

My ex broke up with me in October. We work at the same office so if I see her in the halls I say hi. Outside of that I have gone NC. She still follows me on IG and Snapchat. She occasionally tries to send me things on IG but I learned to ignore them after she tried a breadcrumb text in December. Last week my dad passed away and now suddenly she’s been reaching out dying she is “here for me.” She broke up with me a week after I found out my dad had cancer. She even showed… Read more »

Hi Mike,

do you want her back? because if yes, even if she just wants to be friendly, use that to build rapport and attraction..

Hi Amor, To be honest, I am not sure. Obviously there is a lot of other things going on in my head. But if I do I also don’t want to mistakingly get into the friendzone. Even though if that were to happen, I would know how to handle that. But I made it known to her after the BU that being friends wasn’t in the cards. And I haven’t reached out to her since the BU. She has tried to get my attention a few times. I think the fact she showed up to the wake gave me a… Read more »

Hi, me and my ex have been together on and off since about last April. We met through a mutual friend who she told she thought i was cute and so i decided to text her and ever since then we would talk romantically for a couple months then split off and just be friends then start back up again and a few times make it to the point of being official and dating. A big part of us splitting up so much was because we both had no transportation and she lived an hour away from me, which doesnt… Read more »

Oh sorry1 I got confused. I think she friendzoned you and there’s a chance that she’s also in a grass is greener syndrome because of the other guy. So, check the links below. It doesn’t matter if she’s just waiting for you to text her because you’re already in the no contact period, don’t reply if she does text. The no contact period is for you to focus in improving yourself and make her miss you and regret losing you. I know it’s hard but avoid waiting for her text.

She texted me a couple days after i last posted this just saying hey. I didnt respond but since it was on snapchat she saw that i read it. She texted me the next day saying you said youd be friends and wouldnt ignore me. Then the next morning she said Ok goodbye and then unfriended me. This is about 2 weeks into no contact and i guess i broke it by responding after she already unfriended me and said im not interested in being friends and being strung along, you made the decision to not be together. I hope… Read more »

hmm, well, the chances lessened but you can still bounce back from that, just restart the count..she’ll probably regret her decision more if she sees you’re continuesly improving and check this one:
