    THE NO CONTACT CHALLENGE - Daydream Enginner

    Hey Guys and girls,


    Let's start the No Contact Challenge. This has personally helped me 2 years ago, and i have seen many members asking for "how to get my ex back", and after breakup questions. The idea is a simple one, for 60 days, you will not talk or communicate with the girl that bazooka your heart. In any way, form, or communication, and every time you feel like saying something to her, you will write what you were going to tell her, AND/OR why you want to contact her, in this thread instead. This has been field tested by me, and it works from selling your soul to the she-devil.

    You are going to do No Contact for yourself, you need to get away from here and move on. You will feel a transformation at the end of your challenge, and the ex that broke your heart, won't be a parasite in your mind anymore. You might even get your ex's attraction back, but you will be busy thinking about other girls to give her a second chance.


    Let's begin,
    Here are the rules:

    1. First of all, before you do anything, read these articles:

    The "Just Got Dumped" GUIDE

    http://www.sosuave.net/forum/showthread.php?t=155594

    The Ultimate Break Up Guide…
    http://www.sosuave.net/forum/showthread.php?t=38886

    and....

    No Contact - The Guide


    ...continued.

    ...continued

    2. When you accept this challenge, post here and your time/date stamp will be recorded for accuracy. You will do this for 60 days.

    3. No Contact will be initiated for 60 Days from the date that you post. This mean NO CONTACT WHATSOEVER...and I mean NONE. (Including going to picture sites and myspace/or like sites)

    4. If you work with your ex, you can still accept the challenge. You cannot do ANYTHING to contact your ex UNLESS it is work related ONLY.

    5. If you accept this challange, I would like a post every couple of days on how you are feeling and what you are doing to pass the time. I am hoping by doing this, others will read and try to help themselves is they have a moment of weakness.

    6. If you have contact with your ex BY YOUR DOING..YOU MUST POST WHY YOU DID IT AND HOW YOU FEEL RIGHT AFTER. No exceptions.

    7. If your ex contacts you, UNLESS IT IS AN EMERGENCY, or there are children involved, you cannot respond. PERIOD. If you do, see rule 5.

    8. If an ex comes over or tries to see you physically, this DOES NOT COUNT AGAINST YOU, BUT you MUST POST.

    9. After the 60 days of No Contact has past, you must reread all of your daily threads and write a conclusion based on what you felt when you started and how you feel 60 days later.

    10. When you post every couple of days, please put what day number you are on of the 60 day challenge so that other members can see how you are doing.

    I would like for this to happen because I want other to read the progression involved in the NO CONTACT process.


    If you do NOT feel you are up to the challenge, ... still do it! Don't be a chode and give her attention and try to work things out. 99% of times, it makes it worse. We are man, not little flower girls!


    I wish you all the best....and GOOD LUCK.


    If you accept my challenge, you will be very surprised at the end result.

    I was transformed when i finished the NO Contact Challenge in 8/2007, and i thank Superdave71 for being the original person who started this at Enotalone. This challenge helped me out really well, and you will not regret it. If ANYONE can come up with more rules, PLEASE suggest, so I can update them. I will be happy to listen.

    A couple of weeks after the breakup she wanted to remain "friends" and we did so for a month and it sucked. Didn't get nowhere. Now it is 2 1/2 weeks since I told het o not contact me ever again- which of course she will. I got a new haircut, lost weight, etc. and she saw that. Do you think I did a smart thing by letting her back into my world for a month than letting her go? BTW the main factor in all of this was that she started seeing another dude and as soon as she told me I dropped the bomb on her couple days later.

    Day 17.
    Your are too emotionally involved. When she said "friends" she received all the power. It was not a smart thing to let her back into your life. How long have you known her? From what you wrote i would not talk to her for a least 8 weeks. Im proud that you got a haircut and lost weight, but remember to do it for you. Improve on yourself, and do not, i repeat do not contact or communicate for her for at least 2 months. You will feel so much better about yourself, and you will laugh when you read what you wrote 2 months from now. Keep going to the gym and have fun for yourself, not because it might impress her.

    EDIT: Read the No Contact Guide again...

    If you are not acquainted with the No Contact Rule, now is the time. The ‘No Contact Rule’ is established for the following reason; an inability to cut off a relationship that is over.

    While the rule may sound simple, let me tell you, it’s not, which is all the more reason to enforce it when possible. Breaking up with someone can cause a rollercoaster of emotions including anger, frustration and large amounts of pain which is all the more reason to get away as soon as possible from the source that is causing it. Relationships can be dragged out for months and in some cases years when one or both parties stays in continual contact even though its obvious that the relationship is long over.


    How to abide by the No Contact Rule

    1. No calling. Period. I don’t care if your cat ran away; your house burned down or if your car dumped you on the side of the road. Drama is not a reason to stir up a phone call to the ex. Drunk dialing is big no-no as well. If you feel like calling, call a friend until the feeling passes.

    2. No sex. I know giving up a relationship means giving up sex, but it’s a dangerous recipe to continue intimate relations with an ex. Not only can you become dependent on this closeness but it keeps you in the dark ages on the “get over him” timeline. That’s what vibrators are for.

    3. No spying. You would be amazed at how many women I have known that take it upon themselves to do a quick drive by of the ex’s house. This can satisfy that craving to know if he is home or out on the town with the boys. Worse case scenario you see a strange car outside and your imagination hits an all time high. Don’t do it. This can cause an emotional phone call (see #1) to your ex. Besides, blabbing to him what you saw will only make you look psycho. Not good.

    4. No information sharing through friends. If you the two of you have mutual friends, don’t volunteer information to them in hopes they are going to tell your ex. It is tempting to want your ex to know that you won the million dollar lottery or just met the man of your dreams but it benefits neither one of you in the end. If your friends are blabbing, ask them nicely to keep your personal information to themselves.

    5. Get rid of temptation by deleting your ex’s phone number from your mobile/cell phone (this will prevent drunk dialing) and block his email address. This adds more security layers to the No Contact Rule in an age of technology.

    The No Contact Rule exists to hasten the healing process. By dragging out the end of a relationship, it only delays you from happiness in the future. It is important to allow yourself time to mourn the end of the relationship but keep the no contact rule in place. It will be hard at first but the longer you go, the easier it gets. Remember, practice makes perfect. If you find that you slipped up on any of the above, don’t beat yourself up. It’s never too late to start fresh. Remember, no contact means NO CONTACT. It’s the first and most important step to moving on. Now, go get started!

    I've know her for a year and a half and you are right I took her in too soon I think as well. But yeah I'm going to do the full 2 months. How long should I wait though when she starts calling/texting lets say in like a month to contact her again?

    If she starts texting or calling before the 60 days are over, ignore the calls and delete the voicemails and textings without reading them. She will bombard you with more and more attention and pleas, but you must not communicate with her...... even if she says she wants you back, or wants to talk. No contact means No contact, and i doing no contact too, im on day 3.

    Day 4

    Me and her work together, and one of my guy friends that works there too, dropped me off at the store from school. I got out of my car and she came and started talking to him, and her body language kept saying " i want to talk", but we pretended like we were both invisible, and i am starting to not think that much about her. 56 more days to go, and its going to get easier since our schedules changed, and i only see her on fridays for 4 hours. Its going to be hard no contacting her at work, but its for the best.

    Day 7.

    I haven't heard from her.... and a friend of hers is wondering if im mad at her. I told her friend in person to give me some space, and that i am actually happy me and broke up, because i got a new haircut and im going weightlifting, and i feel relieved.. She called me an A$$hole, some profanity, but boy did it feel good, and worth it.

    When she calls, put the phone down, and walk away. When it stops ringing put it in your pockets for a couple of minutes, and delete her voicemail without listening to it. good job!

    That's AFC.

    Sure she can, and will. She LJBF'ed you, remember?

    She smelled AFC like flies on ****, hence the response.

    I gotta ask, why would anyone want their ex back? They're your exes for a reason, it didn't work out for one reason or another. Whenever I've broken up with someone I've never gone down the same road twice. There are more women on this planet than men, why continually go after the same one continuously?

    I will agree however that if you for some silly reason do want them back, completely severing any and all communication does seem to do the trick. You let them see what life is like without you, providing they had substantial feelings for you, and they'll eventually get back into contact with you. Girls have that whole ex-boyfriend thing that they keep going back to.

    applied the rule as of last thursday

    My ex was my best friend since 1st year of college, now im in 4th year, we have over 60 mutual frends. The TRUTH: ***** cheated, USED me, abused me, and still had the balls to say she loved me. After i found out she cheated i went nuts, but then I forgave her two weeks later we decided to try Frendship...STUPID MISTAKE...NOTHING changed, shes still sleeping with him and putting me thru emotional turmoil. I KNOW i shudnt have gone BACK but this was my first real relationship. EITHER way ive lost a lot of pride and now im on the no-contact rule to get her outta my life...deleted phone number, pictures and everything....support from and DJs is welcome coz im still hurting a bit now n then....Only stupid part is i have to see her in school sometimes coz of exams...how wud u guys react here?

    Ps. Do i delete her facebook? only reason i want her on it, is coz i wana show off pics wit me and other girls and stupid stuff like that. what do u guys think?

    :cheer: hooray! you have done very well, can you tell me what happened after. Yes it might be hard but in the end No Contact works!


    Actually in most cases you forget about her and the thought of hooking up with her is seen as a silly thing.



    You have over 60 mutal friends so your going to see her from time to time, but after exams you will probably see her less. I would delete her from facebook, and i would not try to make her "jealous" or feel bad that she cheated, since she used you and abused you mentally. One of the reasons she might have cheated was because you didn't provide what she wanted or needed... and she had to find it from somebody else. You probably became unattractive and she started bossing you around. This is what i would do... Delete her from facebook, and realized that you dodged a bullet! She was a b!thchy fake queen who would have gotten you in bigger trouble down the road, with marriage or child support. Your the prize, and i know it may seem blah blah blah but ignore her completely. If you see her at a party or in school and she asks you why your ignoring her, ( or her friends ask you why your ignoring her), tell her/them " ive been busy...i have to go" or "i dont feel comfortable talking to you/about her". She's replaceable, but since she was your best friend it hurts alot more, and i know your ego is hurt and you want to restore your pride... but you can restore you pride.... and by not having to talk to her again. Heres how.

    Start working out, improve your quality of life, go have fun, enjoy yourself... and the best revenge is your mutual friends telling her.. hey have you seen 75%PUA lately.... he looks buff... or hey i saw 75%PUA with a brunette walking to class the other day.... your mutual friends will tell her how much fun your having in life without her. in fact this great article below explains it.


    before you delete her facebook, tell her on her wall,

    " Hey thank you for breaking up with me. It was fun while it lasted, but oh well, and i wish you the best. Well gotta go.. just wanted to thank you.. for the good and fun times. bye, im going on an adventure, see you in a couple of months :)"


    The best Revenge Ever on the Ex that dumped you

    "No contact" is basically what I do.

    My reasoning: the only reason to get back in touch after the breakup for me is usually some bs idea about "getting closure." BUT, every time you try to get that last bit of "closure" you will ALWAYS come up with some excuse for why the last time you got in touch wasn't "good enough."

    Because you will always want a little bit more each time, you might as well stop believing in the idea of closure and keep living.

    Go ahead and keep it, but if you ever start looking at her profile (doesn't matter what reason it's for,) scroll on down to the bottom and remove her.

    Told my ex yesterday to not call me for anything ever again. Ive supported her for the past three years and she dosent understand why I cant "just" be her friend. The situation with her has really killed alot of my pride. Shes used me and this becomes evident when she starts dating a new guy. I go from surrogate boyfriend to a pain in her ass. So No Contact is for the best. The sad thing is Im pretty sure her current relationship will end within the next few months because she is a high maintenance attention ***** that kills attraction after the new relationship ideals go away. She expects me to be there to pick her back up like I have several times before. She dosent understand how much this ****s with my head, being used to meet her needs while mine are laughed at. She asked me why I cant just be happy for her, happy that Ive been ditched and shes ****ing someone else. Selfish *****.

    No Contact, day one.
