Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counsellor for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Rafael. Thanks for asking your question - I'm here to support you. (Information posted here is not private or confidential but public).
I am sorry to know about this frustrating and sad situation.
Could you please tell me for how long were you together, and which were the core issues that made your relationship so complicated to the point of ending it?
It's obvious you still think about him and have not been able to move on after 6 months, but what makes you believe he thinks and feels the same if you have not had any communication since the relationship ended?
Have you been in touch with a close friend or relative of him, who has told you about his feelings and expectations about you? Have you had past break ups for this long, and you always got back together by him taking the initiative?
No I haven't been in touch with any of his close friends and don't actually know them well. I still have him in my facebook friends and can feel that he is not happy. Some other little things makes me think he still wants to hear from me, like adding me here and there in other social networks, or liking my posts. Makes me think he wants remind about himself
No i never got back after such a long break up. I would meet someone and move on but now it is not happening
They main issue i think was my insecurity and him getting hot and cold and keeping distance sometimes
That makes sense for sure, otherwise he'd not keep connected that way either.
I understand. You said you do not want to take any initiatives, right?
no, i don't
i think this won't help if i initiate
I think i't's been very long since you broke up, and it could take much longer and nothing assures you he will take that initiative either.
Then you'd just have to wait and hope he would give you another chance, but please do not stop your life while waiting since you do not want to afford that
Also you need to be aware that for a possible relationship in the future, for it to work, the core issues that led to its end in the past would have to be resolved otherwise it would be the same
For relationships to develop and grow as truly healthy and mutually fulfilling experiences both partners need to feel comfortable and willing to be with each other, be open, honest and caring, otherwise it would not work.
Would you suggest me not to expect to hear from him?
I would say that if he'd happen to be truly interested enough expecting you to get back together, he would not have waited 6 months without doing anyhing about it
If he still think of me what could be the main reason he doesn't want to get back? no feelings left or he scared that it may not work again?
So it would be wise to adjust your expectation to your reality, in that way you could hope for a chance in the future, but you would not get even more hurt if if does not happens as you want it
If he hasn't tried to work on it for this long, I think he does not believe it could work between you
and obviously does not feel the strong need and longing to work on it
You're very welcome. Please take good care of yourself, since this is your first need, right and responsibility
from there you would know how to develop healthy relationships without allowing anybody too use, abuse, neglect nor manipulate you.
