— Getting Your Ex Back – Top 5 Questions Answered
What’s happening ladies and gentlemen, I am YouTube’s #1 breakup and divorce expert… my name, of course, is Brad Browning… if you want to learn more about me or see how I’ve helped tens of thousands of people like you win back an ex and get through a breakup, visit and check out my full how-to videos.
Now, you’re going to want to pay attention to this particular video, guys…. because I think it’s going to be one of my best yet, at least in terms of offering helpful tips for those of you trying to get back together with your ex boyfriend or girlfriend.
So last night, I spent a good two or three hours digging through thousands of recent comments on my YouTube videos… and I’ve compiled a list of the top-5 most common questions that kept showing up in your comments. These are the questions that people are asking many times every single day, and for the most part they’re great questions that you’ve been wondering about yourself.
So, let’s do this… starting with question #1:
“What if I still live with my ex / see my ex daily at school or work? How should I handle that, and how do I apply your No Contact strategy?”
This is a super common one I see again and again in your comments, and it’s also probably the toughest out of the 5 I’ll cover in this video for me to answer.
First of all, you don’t need to worry, this is a super common scenario that hundreds of my clients have faced and managed to overcome… so, it’s not going to be something that should stop you from getting back together with your ex.
As for No Contact, I still strongly recommend you limit communication to the essential stuff only… just reply and engage your ex when it’s critical to do so in order to avoid conflict or upsetting your ex. This is especially important if you have kids together or need to work together daily at the office or in school. So, in those cases, just keep the chit chat to the important essentials only, and try to avoid any kind of other discussion aside from perhaps a bit of necessary small talk.
When you are forced to talk with your ex for whatever reason, you absolutely have to keep those interactions positive and drama-free…. Don’t ever let your ex drag you or bait you into conflict or bickering, and don’t have “serious talks” or discussions about anything remotely related to your relationship, breakup, or future together. Just keep it to fun, light-hearted banter that will make your ex think you’re moving on and your post-breakup life is awesome. If you can, use the opportunity to subtly hint to your ex that you’ve started dating again, and be sure to share details of any fun new social events you’ve been attending or new friends you’ve made recently, that kind of thing.
Lastly, don’t make it at all obvious to your ex you’re trying to avoid him or her. Sure, it’s fair and reasonable to want some space and privacy after a tough breakup, so that’s not a problem… and I even suggest trying to avoid putting yourself in situations where you have to spend long period of time with your ex… just don’t say things like “I can’t talk to you” or “leave me alone”, and don’t completely change your daily routines or habits just to avoid your ex. Make it look like you’re not actively trying to avoid conversations, but rather you’re just really busy and don’t have time for anything but the essentials and occasional fun small talk if it’s necessary to avoid awkwardness.
Next up is question #2, and this one is by far the single most common question I’m asked by my coaching clients and here on YouTube in your comments…
2.) “Do I still have a chance to get my ex back, or have I blown it forever?”
Ah yes, the question that I see at least 10-15 times a day… and also a question I can’t answer in a minute or two here, because I’d really need to know more about your situation to give you a proper evaluation.
