Why I follow the ‘no contact’-rule after breaking up

Breakups never come easy. Whether you are the dumper or the dumpee, both hurt. And although the no contact rule is there for different reasons, I use it for my own specific reason. What is the ‘No Contact’- Rule? Everywhere you look on the internet you find the ‘no contact’- rule in combination with getting your ex back.

I knew this from…
