Dear Dr. Romance:

I saw your video "Don't Call Your Ex"   Great video post, good advice.

I couldn't agree with you more.  It was a very timely message for me. Just recently, I decided to let go of my partner...for good...It's only been 2-1/2 months since our split....We broke up before, but he came back after 4 months separation. In the video, you said if he really loves me, he'll be back again. I'm hoping...but not calling,emailing or texting anymore. I've learned my lesson.

Dear Reader:

I'm glad you've decided to let him figure it out for himself. It's the only way he'll know whether he loves you or not -- and the only way for you to know, too. "Three Ways to Get Over Your Ex"  might be helpful.

Just in case he does call you, you might want to read "Dr. Romance: Guidelines for Dating Your Ex"  If he doesn't, The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again will help you find a better guy. Good luck! I wish you a happy and successful relationship, with him or with someone else.
