    I mean , seriously? To have to tell someone 1.5 years into a relationship to reduce the time spent thinking about his ex???
    Come on!!!!
    Actually, I don't think they put any time limit on it. Because if you don't heal, and move on, you could be having those thoughts .... 1.5 years later.

    This isn't about your ex. It's that you moved in together with someone too quickly and now you're bored and no longer attracted to her so you are daydreaming about and idealizing the past.

    No time limit on thinking about their ex , absolutely!!
    But Craig and Margaret are assuming itís post break up and continuous post break up , not 1.5 years into a relationship and suddenly thinking about an ex!!!

    Thatís the same as someone going through a divorce after 20 years and Craig and Margaret telling that person to reduce their thoughts on their first love? Because their first love entered their mind while going through a divorce?

    Their ďadviceĒ doesnít apply here.

    I disagree, and I think you are being too literal.

    The grief process is not linear; it can ebb and flow.

    So their advice does indeed apply.

    Iíve been through grief as we all have. Of course here is ebb and flow.

    But not disappear off the radar for 1.5 years and suddenly come back.
    Perhaps the OP sees another break up on the horizon and is nostalgic? Who knows until he replies.

    It sounds like your current girlfriend is the rebound girl.
