For lasting partnerships, the focus needs to shift away from how to "fix" the other person and towards a broader view of how to repair the relationship.
You're desperately in love with him, but suddenly, he seems disinterested. You haven't heard from him for a few days. You replay all of your recent conversations, reread your texts and wonder why. But none of this is productive. If he doesn't have the courtesy to let you know what's going on, you shouldn't concern yourself with him. And that's the first step to getting over him.
Patching up a lost relationship is very common, and contrary to opinion, a lot of “second time around’s” work outs smashingly.

We all have that one friend who went through the breakup she cannot stop talking about. If it was three weeks ago, you get it. It's still raw. If it was three months ago, okay. You figure she and her ex were together for awhile. She thought she'd found The One. Of course it still hurts.
