“He broke up with me over a month ago and I still don’t know why?”

Patricia, 31, Glendale, AZ


Tons of people are broken up with without being a clear reason or explanation as to why the breakup occurred. Sometimes your ex feels so guilty that he just doesn’t want to confront you or talk to you about the real reasons behind the breakup.

I can’t even begin to tell you how many people reach out to me saying Adrian, “he broke up with meand I don’t even know why!” Sometimes it’s just that your ex is conflicted and he, himself doesn’t really know why he feels the urge to end things or to be single. How could he possibly explain to you why you can no longer be together if he cannot get a grasp of his own emotions?

Other times I’ve seen ex’s not give any reasons for the breakup to try to protect either themselves, because they are being cowards; or to protect you, the person being broken up with. It may sound odd that he would still try to protect you by not speaking to you while also breaking up but I’ve seen it happen time and time again. He knows that his words will be hurtful and he still has some affection for you, so he avoids facing the issue all together.

It’s also possible that he still has feelings for you but that he doesn’t think that your relationship will ever amount to anything; so he’s just trying to protect himself by avoiding you to have you stop chasing him and to make you give up all together!

“I broke up with my ex girl friend because I thought I didn’t like her anymore!”

Jack, 26, Toronto, Canada


People make mistakes and I understand that you could have a change of heart. The issues that you may face are the following: maybe your ex girl friend has moved on, perhaps she has found someone else, it’s possible that her pride won’t let get back with you, or simply that she feels that she won’t be able to trust you anymore.

No matter what the case may be don’t panic; it’s probably still possible for you to get back together if you’re patient, and with the right approach and a solid game plan. Believe it or not you actually hold some sort of advantage over most breakup recoveries because you are actually the one that broke up with her!

You won the power struggle because it was ultimately your decision to end things; meaning that your challenge won’t be to make your ex love you again, but rather to regain her trust. We can help your with that and provide you with concrete actions to undertake to prove to your ex that you can be trusted. But it will take time and you’ll have to realize that she probably will make you suffer a bit before, to get back at you for breaking her heart.

So Jack, (or anyone else who finds themselves in this same position) don’t lament yourself and keep saying “I broke up with my ex girl friend and now I’m full of regrets” No! Own up to your decision and change of heart and start working right away on regaining her trust!

“Dealing with a break up is soooo hard!”

pain of breakup
Tanya, 32, Providence, RI


Yes, I’ll give you that Tanya; dealing with a break up can be quite complicated especially if you don’t have the support you need to handle the separation. Friends and family have good intentions and they don’t want to see you suffer, but often they can be of little help because they are too close to you and don’t have the objectivity to give you sound advice; they are just too emotionally involved in the whole ordeal to be able to give unbiased opinions!

But there are actions that you can undertake to make the breakup easier to live with! You need to force yourself to stay active and to be as busy as possible in order not to let your imagination run wild. Your fears and insecurities will constantly push you to envision the worse possible outcome or scenario. If you stay passive or don’t do anything to snap out of this negative spiral, you will constantly second guess yourself and think that your man is seeing someone else, etc.

Stay busy, fill your calendar with different activities and have zero down time. Finally make sure you exercise a ton to release all the negative energy and tension that you’re holding inside. By tiring yourself out, by going for a long jog or to the gym, you will be able to start to feel better and to clear you head.

“She broke up with me for someone else and it hurts a lot!”

Luis, 29, Miami, FL


When your ex leaves you for someone else it can be pretty devastating and you can feel powerless; that and your ego take’s a hit too! I understand how you feel because I have provided private consultations to over 3,000 individuals who faced a similar dilemma.

Make sure that you just don’t just sit there and curse your luck by saying she broke up with me for someone else, why me, why me! Luis it’s probably still possible to get back with your ex, if you prove to her that she has made a huge mistake. You won’t be able to do this through words or by letting your emotions get the best of you. You will need to regain some self-esteem and to go back to being that man she fell for in the first place!

Make sure that you focus on you and your own personal growth, but that you try to stay in touch with her if you can. A communication platform is essential to win back an ex and to showcase your change and growth. One last bit of advice; don’t ever bring up the other guy that she is now seeing. The more you ask or try to investigate and the more you will push her right back into his arms! That and you will only be hurting yourself by finding out what they’ve been up too or how she feels about him.

“Why did he break up with me? …We were happy together and I thought he was the one”

Claire, 31, London, UK


Breakups very often a surprise to the person being broken up with! Claire if you say these words you were clearly disconnected from your relationships or from the way that your ex felt about you. Did you take the time to listen to his complaints? Did you really not see that he was unhappy?

Your relationship probably fell apart for one of two reasons; either you were too needy and your ex needed more space; or you were too disconnected from your relationship and failed to meet his needs. Either way it’s probably one of these two extremes that pushed him to end the relationship and the reason why you’re asking yourself “why did he break up me?” today.

Claire, if you think that he’s THE one you shouldn’t just let him go without a fight. Just make sure that you approach it the right way; and that you don’t put him on a pedestal. You need to once again become a challenge for him and to prove to him that you can be happy together in the long run. It will be my pleasure to help you put the right actions into place and to provide you with the support you need every step of the way to make sure that you maximize your chances of getting back with your significant other!

“Why did she leave me after all that we’ve been through?”

Dillon, 52, Tampa, FL


Going through a breakup can be pretty traumatic and even devastating. I understand your pain and that’s why I have devoted my life to helping people bridge their differences in order to find happiness in love. Sometimes a breakup is inevitable based on the dynamics of your relationship. It is up to you to understand what went wrong in order to put yourself in position to convince your ex wife to give you another chance!

Instead of asking yourself why did she leave me start to seek the answers to deeper questions. Analyze your ex wife’s fears, insecurities and dreams. Where did you fall short or not meet her expectations? What could you have done differently to make sure she didn’t lose faith in your ability to make her happy?

No matter what the case maybe it’s still possible to get her back; even if divorce papers have already been signed! I’ve seen it happen before, even years after a separation! Your spouse can wake up one day acknowledge all of the efforts that you have made to make things right; while also realizing that you were not the main cause of their unhappiness and sorrow, and that other factors outside of your control played a part in tearing you guys apart.

“Why did he leave me after he decided that we should buy a house together?”

A woman, Cory, is sad of lonelyness
Cory, 36, Detroit, Michigan


Some men are afraid of commitment or don’t like to feel tied up. This can cause people to change their mind or go back on a previous commitment at the last possible moment. Of course it can be terrible for you, if you’re the one being left behind trying to pick up the pieces.

If you were unfortunately left hanging like this you also have to look within and really ask yourself if you are willing to overlook this disappointment to get back with your ex? He also broke your trust and do you feel like you could ever love him again or are you simply scared of being alone and thus going back to the person that you have strong feelings for; even though he is the one that probably caused all that anxiety to begin with.

I will never deter you from a goal that you have set out to achieve as long as it’s not detrimental to your health and overall well-being. No matter if your feelings were hurt if your goal is to get back with him, I will do my utmost to help you get there; but I will always tell you the truth or how I see a given situation. If I think that he will hurt you again Cory, I won’t have a problem letting you know!
