PLM15 Posted August 7, 2008 Share Posted August 7, 2008 Hello everyone, I could use your advice. I'll try to make this as brief as possible. My ex and I were together for 3.5 years....it was a LDR, one year we lived together here in the US, and 2.5 years apart when he moved back to Australia. He broke it off this February, partially because he thought I wouldn't move to Australia....and partially because of our personality differences. I tried for the month of March to get him to change his mind but, alas, with no success. I have been NC ever since, so around 5 months. During this time, I have gone to counseling, a relationship skill course, read a million books on relationships, surfed this site and link removed, and started back to church. From all of this, I've realized how terribly ignorant I was about truly loving another person....and now can finally look back, understand my part in why the relationship broke apart, and learned how NOT to make those same mistakes. I also understand that words will likely do little to convince him to give me a second chance.....that actions are the way to go. But I'm here in the US, and he's in Australia. That being said, I am fully prepared to move to Australia at the end of this year and start a life of my own. It's a big risk that he'll shut me out completely....but I can't think of any other way to SHOW him my commitment and positive changes. I don't want to push him in any way, or risk him feeling that I'm trying to manipulate him. Also, I'm 99% sure that he isn't seeing anyone else since our break up. Any advice on what to do...and how to do it....is greatly appreciated!! Link to comment
