Re: When your spouse/GF has their mind set a break is their decision
Yes there is hope, just don't let them know it. As far as there concerned you will let them go, smile and wish them the best.
See. having a perception of strength and confidence is the best thing you can show them. Never beg or cry, but have a positive ego that makes them believe you are stronger then they think you are.
The whole idea to my thinking here is getting them to think twice about what they are about to lose for good. If they really believe you will move on with out them and the "friends" crap is out, well then they might second quess there choices.
I think poeple want what they can't have and if you can get them to believe that yes your are hurt but are confident to move on *completely without them* then it gets them thinking..
So often its " lets be friends" crap that gets us into trouble. There cake eating....believing you will always be around as there 2nd choice. But when you wish them the baest and tell them you can no longer have any contact for your own emotional health, well then they start to wonder if they willl lose you for what ever reason they want to leave you in the 1st place.
Sure this could back fire, but what have you really lost when they have already cheacked out. You can only hope they start to miss you and start chasing you since you have distanced your self.
Give it a shot, what could you lose that you already have lost.
