askdan Posted January 29, 2018 Share Posted January 29, 2018 I first joined eNotalone in February of 2004 with my ex-fiancee left me. After a very difficult 3.5 years and several valiant attempts at reconciliation, I was going nowhere. 2007: meeting a very attractive lady and got married the following year. No contact at all with my ex. Fast-forward a decade: officially divorced after ex-wife has left. Several unsuccessful attempts at reconciliation. Ex-fiancee heard of my divorce and reached out this past May. She said that she has never stopped loving me and regretted breaking up the engagement in 2004. We are now back together for the first time since February 2004, 14 years later, and discussing wedding plans. The morale of this story, for all those reading and hoping to get back with an ex: plenty of time and space, and don't beg to get back together. For those with limited contact, always show the utmost respect to your ex and be ready to move on if he or she for whatever reason does not reciprocate. For some, the No Contact may be the best strategy. For others, limited contact is appropriate. It is difficult to know which strategy to adopt as it depends on your ex's personality and circumstances. The morale of this story is to never give up hope and keep respecting your ex. I am not suggesting to wait 14 years as in my case, but you would be surprised at how difficult it is for an ex to move on after leaving you. Just wanted to give hope to people out there who needed most. Reconciliation is possible, even if it seems against all odds right now. I will end this post with a final reminder: never give up hope, it's never as bad as you think it is. But for a potential future reconciliation down the road a few months or a few years from now, respect is fundamental. Link to comment
