3. You won't meet the right guy. It's important to explore the reason you attracted and fell for your ex so you do not repeat the same mistakes. However, when he is in such close contact with you on a regular basis, you won't even see the right guy if he's standing right in front of you because you'll compare him to your ex, as if your ex is the gold standard for men, even though your ex wasn't right for you.
The finality of ending a relationship completely by stopping all communication seems so traumatic to many women. The emotional connection in love and that gaping void after a breakup almost feel too difficult to live through. However, every person can start over and attract lasting love with the right guy, leaving the past behind and learning a better pattern for relationship success. Taking this step of courage and faith will allow you the time necessary to focus on changes that will bring the right man into your life.
