Does out of sight, out of mind hold true for breakups?
You’ve removed any pre-breakup photos from your frames, packed up every picture, re-gifted your teddy bears and torn up your love notes! So why after virtually erasing your ex... are you still struggling to mend your broken heart? Despite your efforts to rid your environment of every physical aspect of your ex, relationships leave you with emotional inventory that can’t be cleared with a keystroke like the history cache on your computer.

If you unfollowed, unfriended and deleted your ex from your life, we want to hear from you.
Last year, we asked everyone to unfollow, unfriend and delete their ex from their life. We called it the "Break Up With Your Ex" campaign and it did so welll that we had thousands of people on Facebook participate and Time, Mashable and The Today Show covered the campaign. This year we are at it again with a brand new campaign, brand new stories, statistics and contests, and this time we want to hear from you.
Feeling spurned? Points on discerning when it is best for both parties to let the relationship go...
"If someone can walk away from you, let them walk."
The bulk of us have heard this statement before, and it is almost always in reference to the disintegration and subsequent break up of a relationship. You are generally told this when the relationship is ending by the choice and decision of someone other than yourself. Hearing that if someone can walk away from you that you should let them is not much comfort when it is the person that you love who is choosing to do the walking.

If your relationship has broken down and you are not ready to start dating again, what do you do?
This landed in my inbox the other day:
"My ex and I had been going out for a year and a half. He had expressed so many times how much he cared about me and all that jazz. About two months ago he was talking with his parents (he is 18 and still lives with them) and they convinced him that I was not right for him because of my religion. He left and we played the text messaging game backwards and forwards. He came back after I mentioned I was simply going to hang out with this guy he used to be jealous of.
Well I did everything Wrong Wrong Wrong and now I'm alone and hopeless. My ex & I were together for almost 3 years. We were very much in love and then the programs with his adult son began. He focused on his son and he became overwhelmed with that. He told me to give him space & I didn't, I texted, called, showed up to see him, you name it I did it and I did it wrong. Relationships are painful, and I'd just like to win him back somehow.
My boyfriend and I were good friends for about a year or two before we started dating, and once we did, it was magic! We dated for a little over three months. he would always say the sweetest things to me! I could tell he wasn't lying when he told me he loved me, and that I was the most important thing in his life. We hung out together alot, and we missed each other when we weren't together. Basically, I thought our relationship was perfect.
