Got ex back after a few weeks, it didn't last

My ex broke up with me in October, without much explanation. I suffered through about 8 weeks of NC and then couldnt stand it anymore and went sobbing back to him - he took me right back, said it had been hard on him too, seemed glad we were back, etc. - but we never talked about what had gone wrong or how we might fix it (I *think* we both had an idea of what had gone wrong, or maybe different ideas, since we never talked about it I dont know for sure).

We fell right away back into kind of a comfortable habit, but it seemed to me that somehow it could be fixed, or we could be happy again in a different way, that as long as we were speaking there was the possibility. But day by day passed and after about a month he began to withdraw again and really be kind of mean, so this last Monday night I finally said "I cant do this anymore," and just left. To be honest Im sure he was thinking of dumping me again and sooner rather than later.

Oh well, too bad. But it was good to do the actual official breaking off myself, this time. Not nearly so much NC pain as before. He just stopped loving me, "that's all." I can imagine living without him now, and I couldnt before.

We had loved each other SO much. Funny how love lights on you, and then just as easily lifts away. Oh well. We all die alone

A couple of those voting choices apply to me. I had an ex that we went on and off for about a year. She made initial contact and asked me to be her bf. She then breaks up with me. Get back together a month later - lasted for about 2 months. I break up with her cause she kissed some guy. She begs to get back together. I gave her another chance. She breaks up with me. This whole cycle kept going and going. She would break it off and then want me back. Each time I would agree to get back with her is because she had a bad life. I'm just trying to do whatever i could to make it just a little easier and more fun for her.

Eventually we lost contact. Haven't spoken in over a year now. Sometimes I miss her =(

Love is...
What makes a weak man brave
And a king step off his throne
Good times, bad times
Easy times, tough times
It comes in an instant
And lasts three days after forever
That's what love is.

My ex broke up with me because he was moving and didn't think he could handle a long distance relationship. I did the "no contact" thing for about 3 or so months and it worked. I got back in touch with him after I felt that I was over him because I told him we would be friends when I was ready. We talked about every couple of days via text or calls. We were and still are very close. I even talked to him about problems with other guys. In January he came up here for a day and we saw eachother for the first time since we broke up in July. He called me to tell me he was in town. And then just this past weekend I went down to his house for four days to visit him. It was as if nothing had changed between us. We are very very close. Now I am feeling that I may have some feelings for him because of how physical we were with eachother, although we both tell eachother we don't want to get back together( i don't know how true that is). Anyways, I am just giving it time and letting him run everything. If he wants to try again he will let me know and if we are meant to get back together we will. Meanwhile, I know that I have a good friend and someone to talk to. Someone that will always be there for me. Hey, no one figured that we would start talking again or that I would even go visit him! Our relationship (friendship) has lasted almost a year now! We both have dated other people after the break-up but those relationships didn't last as long and were not as intense. I am just going to stick it out and see what happens! I hope this helps! And if you or anyone else wants to talk PM me please! Anytime! Good luck!!!

My ex and I got back together after 15 years. We were high school sweethearts, eachothers first loves, both of us married others that didn't work out and now we are planning our own wedding set for next year. I wouldnt change anything as we are the people we are today because of the things we saw, did and went through. Today we are able to love eachother fully with no conditions.

The love was still there, perhaps even stronger because we finally appreciated what we meant to one another. It was beyond wonderful, far exceeding the time we first met. I think it was because we know this time, we're stuck for good After 6 months of misery it was a sigh of relief.
