Does No Contact Work If Your Ex Is
Seeing Someone Else
June 8, 2021
I get a lot of emails asking me about the No Contact Rule. Most people ask me
for advice on how to get through No Contact so that they can recover fast.
Others express their struggles after hopelessly giving in to their ex and
breaking the silent treatment.
And from time to time, I get a question like this, “Does No Contact work if your
ex is seeing someone else?”
Usually, this question comes from someone desperate to get their ex back.
They are hoping that something magical will happen 30 or so days after staying
silent. Like if their ex will suddenly reappear, apologize for their radical choice,
and ask for forgiveness and a chance to get back together.
Sorry girl. That’s not going to happen. And unfortunately, that’s not the way the
No Contact Rule works.
When someone asks me if the No Contact Rule works to get their ex back (or
something along that line), I feel that they haven’t grasped the real purpose of
No Contact. No, it’s not a breakup, make-up mechanism that rekindles broken
relationships. The No Contact Rule is also not a period of time when you seek
a rebound relationship to make your ex jealous and miss you like crazy.

The No Contact Rule is a healing process. It’s a period of time where you go
radio silence, reevaluate your life, and re-align your life purpose. It’s a moment
where your life hits rock bottom, and you need to call time-out on dating and
Breakups are tough. But sometimes, it could be a blessing in disguise.
It could take a couple of weeks or even months for you to recover from your
breakup. But time shouldn’t be a factor here when your emotional, physical,
and mental health is what’s important.
So, if you’re thinking about where No Contact works if your ex is seeing
someone else, the answer is that it’s unrelated.
What your ex-boyfriend is doing has nothing to do with whether the No Contact
Rule is working for you or not.
