You’ve heard it several times before; in order to get your ex back you have to have No Contact with them. But what do you do in those trying times when it seems like it is impossible to remain out of sight? Believe me, there will be weak moments when you want to throw the rule book out of the window and just beg your ex to come back. Doing this will make all of your efforts flush down the drain. So what can you do to stay true to your no contact rule? Read on to find out.

1- Enroll a friend to help you out. If day in and day out you feel the urge to pick up the phone and dial your ex – dial a friend instead. You want to get your ex back right? By calling your friend every time an urge strikes, you are sparing your ex the annoyance of your persistence.

2- Hand your phone over to someone else. Say you’ve been out drinking all night and you and your friends have hashed out every detail on how to get your ex back. You’re feeling nostalgic, weak, and drunk. If this is the case then hand your phone over to your friend for the night. It will keep you from derailing the “get your ex back” train.

3- Learn how to be busy. This may sound confusing but it’s actually quite simple. If you are keeping in touch with your ex, it may be possible that they call you for a favor or two. Learn how to say no and be too busy on these occasions. You don’t want your ex to think that you are just sitting at home waiting for him or her to call. You don’t want to be at your ex’s beck and call. If you do, they’ll walk all over you but never get back together with you. If you want to get your ex back you need to keep busy AND stay busy.

Why is getting your ex back so important to you? Because a good relationship is one of the most treasured of human interactions. We all want to be loved. There are the great times together, the shared dreams and visions, the mutual likes and dislikes and more. Great relationships are essential for enjoying a good quality of life. They color everything else around us.
