Understanding Why Your Ex Boyfriend Is Ignoring You  -  Crucial Insights

When you are asking yourself "why is my ex boyfriend ignoring me?" then you will need to read this article!

A breakup, by definition, means that the dynamic that existed between two people in a relationship has drastically changed. They aren't close like they once were. They aren't as invested personally in what's happening in the other person's daily life. They don't spend the amount of quality time together that they used to - if they spend time together at all. While all breakups are unique based on that particular, specific situation, it's possible that one partner just stops talking to their ex completely. This is becoming more common and is known as the "no-contact" policy. If you find yourself on the receiving end of an enforced no-contact policy against your will, chances are you have some questions. Understanding the reasons behind being ignored can be the first step of many to moving past it. If you still hope that there is a chance for you to get back together with your ex, it is vital that you understand why he's acting this way.

Being ignored can be extremely frustrating and painful. It can be overwhelming to want nothing more than another chance with your ex, when he can't even be bothered to respond to your texts. The more he ignores you and the longer the no-contact policy goes on, the more frustrating it can be. Your mind can often run wild with you and fill your imagination with things he's doing and people he's with - and none of them involve you. Don't succumb to the desire of doing something drastic to get his attention. Taking dramatic measures can only succeed in pushing him farther away, and potentially ruin any chance you have of reuniting. While it can be hard to not let your emotions run away with you, it's important to take things one day at a time and try to understand why before taking any action at all.

Difficulties Communicating

The first step to reestablishing a connection that has been lost or damaged is to understand the reasons behind it. In order to know how to deal with his no-contact policy, it's vital to know why he has enforced one. The first thing to realize is that you shouldn't take it personally. The silent treatment is not a direct reflection on how little you mean to him. He may be ignoring you because he does still have strong feelings for you, and his emotions are confusing him. Don't jump to unnecessary conclusions and try to see everything with a clear head. Look at the situation as a whole from an objective point of view, and try to understand where he may be coming from.

Men don't deal with breakups well, and it's often difficult for them to connect with their emotions. This is true across the board, no matter whose decision it was to end the relationship. Following the breakup itself, guys often need time to deal with their feelings and come to an understanding about what happened. The amount of time depends on the individual guy - but it can take days or weeks after the relationship has ended for them to come around. Recognizing this is an important part to understanding why your ex may be ignoring you. It could be nothing more than him just trying to focus on his feelings and to try and figure out what the future holds.

Getting Even

If you're focused more on something you may have done wrong as the reason for the sudden silence, it may be time to review the time shortly before the breakup that led to it. If you never sincerely apologized for any wrongdoing, then this is a good time to make that apology known. If nothing comes to mind, then do some more soul-searching and go back to the problems that existed when you were together. Whatever you do, don't offer an insincere apology and expect everything to just be okay. An apology that is not heartfelt is very transparent, and it will probably only make them angrier.

If he feels as though you really hurt him, it's possible that he wants you to feel just as bad as he does. He probably knows that by ignoring you, he can get under your skin and make you feel rejected - just like he may feel like you rejected him. If he was the one that made the decision to end the relationship, ignoring you could be nothing more than just a continuation of the game he's playing with you to string you along. He could be testing you to see if he can get a reaction out of you, which will somehow prove to him that you still care. Contacting him in these circumstances will stroke his ego, and make him feel better about himself. It will do nothing to improve the overall situation. Emotions run high at the end of a relationship, and while these may seem cruel or childish, they're more common than you might think.

Leave Him Be For The Moment

The best thing to do is to stop trying to contact your ex if you think he's ignoring you, giving you the silent treatment or enforcing a no-contact policy. Trying to chase him down and force contact if he's not ready can send him running in the opposite direction and leave any chance for reconciliation in the dirt. Give him some space, and allow him the time on his own to figure out what he wants to do going forward. Once he starts to experience life without you in it, he will probably start feeling lonely, and may start missing you. If that's the case, you can expect to hear from him eventually.

Whatever you do, don't make yourself feel foolish by chasing after him, leaving emotional messages all over his Facebook page or texting him every five minutes. That does nothing but boosts his ego, and leaves you feeling worse than you already did. While things may seem bad now, it's possible to turn them around and see the situation from a whole new perspective. Don't allow him to get under your skin and force a reaction - that's probably just what he's after. Prove that you're better than that, focus on yourself and find ways to keep yourself occupied. By taking the first steps to move on, it's possible that he'll want to be a part of that with you again, and you'll get what you were after in the first place.

Your Next Step

The next thing that you need to do is to find out more about contacting your ex boyfriend. This will put the power back in your hands. When you understand how to use contact to your advantage, it will drastically turn the tables in your favour.

There are also things that you can do to attract your ex boyfriend back to you. These are based on sound psychological principals. After that, it would be a great idea to make him miss you as this is the key to making him contact you again and want to get back together.

I hate to say this i have to cos even of it feels wrong its something i had to do.Some people say if a door closes another opens but i say that is just a fancy way of dealing with the pain we feel cos really if we loss something or someone so dear, we can never really get a replacement cos nothing will ever seem to fit.Well that was just how i felt when my wife wanted out of a eleven years marriage with beautiful kids. As ashamed and as sorry as i am, it was all my fault. I made our marriage almost come to an end but glade it didn't all thinks to Mutton Osun a magic guy or rather spell caster as most people call it online.Its amazing how one mistake can take away all you have worked hard for in just a blink. Just a moment of weakness that made me cheat on my wife, would have been the end of all my happiness and my family. It didn't stay hidden for so long she found out and she lost it all i saw it clearly she still loved me so much cos in her eyes all i could see was deep pain and a thick cut in her heart even when she kicked me out and wanted a divorce. I loved this woman with all my heart heart and was really not going to let her go. As i said i asked a spell caster Mutton Osun to help me restore my marriage and my life cos really he was my last option to happiness again. His spell made the subconscious of her that always loved me selflessly surface again as he explained what ever he did help a lot as other article i read about him said, he only asks for materials for the spell and if it may arise extra money to ship the spell package to you. He is honest and trustworthy one of the only good help out there. IF you may contact do it with this email godsofosunx@rocketmail. com

Am short of words i don't know were to start from in giving this testimony, first of all my name is Roland am from USA i want to testify the great thing Dr okpa did for me i never taught i could get Miranky back to my life after she left me for 2years despite i was the one who did her wrong, Miranky was the love of my life and which she still is, and which she will always be till death do both of us apart,i hurted her so much to the extend that i drove her out of my house just because i was dating this so called kayshun who is a devil, Kayshun messed my life up, i never taught i could be happy again then that was how i now realized that Miranky is the best among all ladies when i was with her things were going right the way i want it but i foolishly chased her away, after the encounter between me and Kayshun, then i now have to look for Miranky because i believe she is the only one who is been destined to be mine i called her for months pleading and begging her to forgive me that i did not know what came over me. i pleaded with her for good 8 months after the breakup between me and her which i caused in 2years but she decided not to accept me but i know she was right but am willing to stay with her love her and promise not to hurt her for any reason, but she did not understand so i have been trying to get her back to my life, but there has been no way to do this.there was a day when i was watching television, then i saw a man named Harry giving testimony to the world on how dr okpa brought back his wife with 2kids, then when i heard this i was so surprised then i decided to contact dr okpa to see if he can help me. when i contacted him he told me not to worry that she will surely come back to me in the next 24 hours, so that was how i waited to see what will happen, the next morning surprisingly i got a call from her she was crying and telling me that she was sorry for not accepting me on time, i was so surprised, so that was how i got Miranky back to my life and now we are living happily than ever before. Dr okpa i thank you so much if not for you what would i have done, sir you are great, if you want dr okpa to help you like as he has helped me you can contact him Via okpatempleofsolution@gmail. com or cell number +2348056563186.

Since Dr.Zabaza of zabazalogan@yahoo .com cast a love spell for me, things are going great in my relationship life. my lover who was cheating on me is now a loyal and dedicated man. I’m glad he came back to me after the break up with him because I love him, but without Dr.Zabaza help, all of this couldn't happen or even be possible. It is the first time I am using the service of a spell caster and even if I was a bit skeptical at first, I highly recommend his service to people like me who needs an extra help. All they should do is to contact Dr.Zabaza on +2348182620374 or better still reach him on his email on zabazalogan@yahoo. com

I wish to share this good testimony on this site for all that Dr. Kaka had done in my relationship; he has been so faithful with his work. He helped me to get back my ex-boyfriend when he left me during our dating period. After meeting Dr. Kaka, in less than 48 hours my ex-boyfriend came back to me and got married to me. Now we are happily living together with a kid. He also helped me when I had problem with my current job, he never let me down for any failure. He is a nice and courageous man that gives what you want at the appropriate time. So i encourage you to inform him wisely about your problem on his email: dr.kakasolutiontemple@gmail. com Natasha, USA
