Breakups can be very difficult and painful. Here is some advice I've picked up over the years on how to help you move on, get closure about the breakup or even giving your relationship a second shot.

The reasons behind the split up don't matter, all relationships that end have either one or both of the people involved needing space from the relationship. You can explore all your options while you guys apart. You can do anything from experiencing life as a single person, dating other people, to contemplating about your life and where it's going. Do anything you want . The reason your partner dumped you is because they need some time to step back from the relationship and reflect on what they want.

If you got dumped,my advice to you is to give your partner the breathing room that they need. You will drive them away if you keep hassling them about taking you back . Realize that they need space and if you keep calling or texting them, they are going to push you away further because you aren't giving them the space they need. You will still have to give them the space they want even if you just want to stay in contact to maintain a friendship or as a way to eventually get back together. Understanding this important part gives you a chance to properly give them the space they need .

With my friends who going through this, I advise them to stop reaching out to their ex for about two weeks to a month. This step is not easy. It will be so tough to keep yourself from picking up the phone to call him or emailing him.

This will benefit you because this will give your ex a chance to miss you. I promise that you will be on his mind while you are giving him the breathing room he needs. All those laughter, sweet moments,cherished memories will be on his mind while you guys are apart. I know you've heard this before, "absence makes the heart grow fonder."

Take advantage of the "no contact" rule yourself. You can use the time as a chance for working through the complicated emotions you get with breaking up. Time apart can also give you a chance to decide whether or not this relationship is worth saving. Having some time alone will give you a chance to try new things and meet new people as well. You might learn that you are a happier person when you not with him.

Hey, maybe your ex will be the one contacting you. This might feel like a miracle if you feel like you've done all you can to get him back before.

In conclusion, if you find yourself being dumped, take my advice and don't call your ex for a few weeks. I'm pretty sure it will be tough, but in doing so, it will help your situation.
