My exboyfriend and i broke up long story short he is in a rebound

This answer was rated:

My exboyfriend and i broke up long story short he is in a rebound relationship now i was doing no contact for 7 weeks, and caved when he told one of my girlfriends that he wasnt over me, he did tell me his rebound relationship is not what he thought, anyway we ended up sleeping together, and i know that is a big no no if you want your ex back. Did I just throw everything out the window now are my chances of getting him back gone, I'm so mad at myself


I do not think that you blew your chances of getting back with him. Sometimes people do not realize what they have and tend to think that they will find the perfect person or relationship. The truth is relationships take work and there is none perfect. It is about the two people involved and loving each other being able to work through all things. It seems he may have realized this with his new relationship as well as your no contact. At this point you both were missing one another and slept together. I think this was you both sharing your feelings in an intimate fashion, but now the next step may be to talk about everything, such as feelings you both have and the next steps to proceed. So, don't worry about feeling you messed up. You did not and can go from here.

Please let me know if I can help further and I wish you the best.
