Another way to be a good boy is to make sure to listen to your parents in public. Avoid contradicting them, ignoring them, openly disregarding their rules, throwing tantrums, or doing anything that would make them feel embarrassed and disappointed in you. This will make them upset and can hurt your relationship with them. Instead, do the mature thing and avoid throwing a tantrum and ask if you can talk about it later. Listen to your teachers. One of the best ways to be a good boy is to listen to your teachers. Make an effort to do as your teachers say and not to cause problems in the classroom.
Not only will listening to your teachers make them happier, but it will make your parents happier, too. If you really struggle with listening to your teachers or think they are being completely unreasonable, then you should be as nice as you can to them and talk to your parents to discuss next steps.
Do as well as you can in school. However, you should make an effort to do as well as you can, to study for your exams, to do your homework, and to generally be a dedicated student. When you need help, come to your teachers or your parents for help, and make an effort to always improve. Good boys tend to do well in school, because they know that success in the classroom is important. Make an effort to study for your exams well in advance so you get the best results. Be kind to your classmates. Treating other people with kindness and respect is one major way to be a good boy.
Participate in class. Another way to be a good boy is to participate in class. When your teacher asks questions, you should make an effort to answer them while giving other people a chance to answer, too. Make sure to participate in group work, too. You should always be active and engaged with the material. Follow the rules. In order to be a good boy in school, you should avoid having conflicts with your teachers and your administrators. Follow all of the rules at your school, from any dress code rules you have to follow to coming to school on time and acting respectful in the school cafeteria.
If you want to be a good boy, then listening to the rules is important. Trying to outsmart your teachers is one of the worst things you can do if you want them to like you. Of course, if you have a legitimate concern, you can still bring it up to your teacher. Just make sure you do so in a respectful manner. Be honest. When it comes to tests, you should avoid cheating or engaging in other dishonest behavior and work on getting good grades honestly, through studying and hard work. Be organized. Good boys tend to be organized in school, so that they can focus on their studies without making a mess.
Have an organized backpack, school and home desk, notebook, and anything else you use for school. Work on separating your school subjects by folder and always knowing where everything is. Make sure that your desk at home, your desk at school, and your locker or backpack are neat and organized. Taking just minutes a day to clean your things can help you stay on top of your studies. Be respectful. Being respectful is an important quality of a good boy as well as a good man. Make sure to treat people who are older than you with the utmost respect, even if you may disagree with them sometimes.
Be nice to your neighbors. Another way to be a good boy is to be nice to your neighbors. Avoid making too much noise, accidentally getting on their property, ignoring them, or generally not treating them kindly. Your parents will want you to be nice to them to help make a good impression for your family, and being nice to them will make your living situation much easier. Be kind to girls. One of the most important parts of being a good boy is treating girls with the kindness and respect they deserve.
Be polite. Being polite is an important part of being a good boy. Being polite means treating others with kindness and respect, avoiding being vulgar, and showing a kind interest in people. Avoid burping in public and excuse yourself if you do. Let people pass in front of you instead of butting in in front of them. Help out in your community. If you want to be a good boy, then you should work on volunteering in your community to help make the world a better place. You can help clean up a local park, help people learn to read at the library, or volunteer in a soup kitchen to help people have access to food.
If you help out with your parents, then this will also be a great bonding activity. You should make a lot of positive changes in your life. When you meet your ex after the no contact period, you want them to be attracted to you. And the best way to do it is to start enjoying life and becoming an overall happy person. This could be the difference between getting your ex back or losing them forever.
Basically, the no contact period should be as long as it takes you to get yourself together and feel great about your life without your ex. In my experience, it can take up to 30 days. At this point, you might start wondering how no contact is going to effect your ex and what you should do about it. This section covers most of the doubts you may have regarding no contact. If you still need more information, read this article. Ideally no. You want them to wonder what happened to you and why you are not contacting them.
And telling them you are not contacting for some time will defeat this purpose. Just tell them to not contact you until you decide to contact them. Let them know you need some space and time right now. Sometimes, rudeness is not as bad as you think it is. Besides, you are doing no contact for your own mental peace and well-being. There is nothing rude about taking care of yourself. The only exception to this is if you are close to ending your no contact and you are already feeling great about your life.
If you and your ex were in any type of serious relationship, then they will not be able to move on so quickly. In fact, no contact is only going to make them miss you more and remember the good things about you. You have to take a leap of faith over here. The alternative to no contact is being a creep and texting and stalking your ex all the time, which will probably lead to a restraining order against you. So, you want to give your ex a couple days break from your avalanche of texts and then bombard them again after a couple of days? It takes time for people to remove negative association after a breakup and start missing their ex.
You have to give it to them. Besides, you have to prove to yourself that you can live without your ex for at least 30 days. Unless you make a positive change in yourself, your ex will not be able to convince themselves to get back together with you. If you have children, then you must do limited contact. That means you only speak to your ex when necessary. If your ex asks you personal question, you tell them something like,. I hope you understand and keep the conversation only related to our child or children for the time being.
This is why I highly recommend you find a way to move out. At least for the time being. Explain to your ex that living with them is hard for you right now and you would like to temporarily move out. Tell them you would decide about the living arrangements later when you are thinking clearly. Make a space for yourself in the house and only stay in that space. But they want to put the effort after the breakup. If you are reading this article, then that means you have already tried to convince them that things will be different this time.
That you will put in more effort and will be committed. That you will care. You are showing that you care because you are needy and desperate. And keeping in touch with them confirms that belief. And the best way to help them overcome this belief is to show them you are no longer needy and desperate by doing no contact. You can let them know beforehand that you are doing no contact to heal and to think things through. That it just means that you are taking some space to figure out what your issues are and what you can do to overcome them.
Not unless we are mind readers. But I can tell you what usually happens to an ex when their ex stops contacting them after a breakup. You see, if you have been in constant touch after a breakup, your ex never really had to face the breakup. Sure, they made the decision to breakup with you and they probably think breaking up was the right decision. A breakup means losing someone you love. And if they never really felt like they lost you, they never truly went through the breakup.
They never grieved, and they never felt that feeling of having a black hole from hell in the pit of your stomach. How they react to that grief is a whole different topic. Check back on this space later to read that article. Read more about signs during no contact rule here. But she still loved her ex and wanted to get him back. She felt they had a strong connection and a future together.
The two things that were very important to Jennifer. It was a classic case of fear of commitment. When she started no contact, she was not sure if it will work. It worked, but not in the way she wanted.
Her ex called her after 2 days of no contact. He asked her how she was. A couple days later, he started texting her late at night. He was obviously drunk. He started telling her how he loved her and how much she meant to him. Jennifer thought it best not to reply to him. He said those things before while drinking and went back to being cold when he was sober. He was angry. He became abusive. Calling her names, you would be ashamed to say in front of your mother. Accusing her of being with a new guy and forgetting him so soon after the breakup.
She was heartbroken, but her perspective and her thoughts about her ex changed. She continued no contact. Asked her if the guy she was dating is in her bed now. I could never trust you. That time you went partying with your girlfriends, I am sure you cheated on me. Her ex always had trust issues even though she was honest with him and never gave him a reason to doubt her.
He brought up that night again and again during fights. The one night she came home late. He eventually left. But his behavior made her realize that he was not the right person for her. She decided to continue no contact indefinitely and move on. Her ex continued this behavior for a couple months. He even asked her to get back together many times. But she was determined to move on.
This is the part where most people screw up. No contact will be of no use unless you try to make a positive change in your life during this time. If you just want to stay at home and just be miserable for the next one month, things are not going to change even after no contact period. But you must balance it out with things that bring you joy. You must go out and enjoy life. You must figure out what makes you happy and do it.
You must learn to be happy without your ex. Making a positive change in your physical appearance is going to give you a fresh look. You are going to feel new and you are going to feel better. Being a happy and confident person is probably the most important thing when it comes to getting your ex back. You need to realize that happiness and confidence is something that you can get by working on yourself.
Instead of sitting at home eating ice cream and watching TV, go out and do something to make yourself feel better. Give yourself some time to grieve. I know how hard it is to be happy after a breakup. I remember I was a complete mess for at least two weeks. In a way, this period is necessary for you.
You give yourself some time to grieve every day. If you want to feel sad and sorry for yourself, go ahead and do it. But make sure you also do something to make yourself feel good about yourself. Write in a journal. Write your thoughts and your feelings down. Go out with friends. Spend time with your loved ones. Your friends and family are the people who are always there for you and who always love to spend time with you. Go out and have a good time with them. Do some meditation. Be aware of yourself. Know your weaknesses and strengths.
Be proud of yourself. Accept yourself for who you are. Neediness which is very unattractive comes from doubts within yourself. Whereas confidence comes from awareness and accepting yourself. Go out on a date. This is absolutely essential and if you are reading this, then I will recommend that you definitely go out on a few dates before ending no contact with your ex.
If you suffer from issues that you believe might have led to the breakup, this is the time to work on them. Some examples of these issues are. I also talk about fixing these issues in my email series that you can subscribe to by taking this quiz. You have to ask yourself this question, why do you want to get back with your ex? If you answered something like. Then you are still suffering from post-breakup denial and bargaining.
Denial and bargaining are two of the many stages of grief after a breakup. For example, even if your relationship with your ex was abusive, you might want to rekindle it just because you are missing them. Look at it like this, every relationship has problems, fights, and disagreements. But if you two broke up, then there was something very wrong with your relationship. If you listen to your heart, all you will hear is that you love your ex and you want them back. Instead, try to think with your mind. Be logical. Analyze what your goals in life are and whether or not a relationship with your ex aligns with those goals.
And the only way you can do it is by understanding yourself, loving yourself, appreciating what you have, understanding your purpose in life and pursuing it. So you better make sure that it is the right one. Take your time. Relax and do things that make you feel better. When you start being happy in life without your ex, you will realize whether or not getting your ex back is the right decision.
Almost every success story I have come across has one thing in common. They all understood exactly what went wrong in the relationship and exactly how to fix it. Moreover, every situation is unique and the solution to each situation is also unique. But in most cases, the reason for breakup can be boiled down to the loss of one of the following. You must figure out the real reason for the breakup. Not just what they said to you while breaking up with you. Try to figure out what happened in the relationship that pushed them to the point of breaking up with you. There is a good chance that your ex loved you deeply and breaking up with you was a hard decision for them as well.
Your ex boyfriend is equally sad and miserable because of this breakup. If you truly love them, you owe it to them and yourself to figure out the root cause of the breakup and how to fix it. And even if you do manage to get them back, you will break up again because of the same reasons. When you are sure that you can fix whatever was broken in your relationship, move on to the next step, which is contacting your ex. She started no contact before she came to us. All she could think about was what he was doing, what could happen if he comes back. What she should say to him if he contacts?
She kept repeating what happened during the relationship and the breakup over and over again in her mind. She was in, what I would call, a threaded toxic relationship. They were together for almost 5 years. And she was fully committed to him. A marriage and kids. Even when he left her, he gave her a bit of hope. That they might get back together in the future. She was obsessed with everything that happened. He had crossed every boundary she set for herself. Even cheated on her twice. But she still convinced herself that she loves him and will forgive him if he came back and commits. Margarete was in a toxic relationship.
And it was her fault more than anyone else. Her low self esteem made her feel worthless. And it kept her mind in a toxic state of obsessiveness. Even after her ex left her. A couple of months after no contact, her ex came back. He felt attracted to this display of confidence and self-control. Her ex had not changed a bit. He was still a bit immature and terrified of commitment.
Unfortunately, Margarete was equally terrified of losing him. The last time I spoke to her, they were on a temporary break, 2 years after getting back together. The relationship was pretty much the same as before. She was unhappy, exhausted and constantly frustrated. Her ex cheated on her again. This was not the type of relationship I had hoped she started with her ex. She did no contact. But she never grieved and regained her individuality. In my opinion, she should have extended no contact until she regained her self-confidence. But the idea of getting back together was too tempting for her to listen.
Thankfully, she is getting therapy now. And I hope that she gains the strength to leave him and put her own well being over the idea of being with him. Remember when your ex left you? They thought of you as a needy, clingy and desperate person with little to no self-respect. After not being in contact with you for a while, they must be wondering what the heck happened to you. They will slowly start to forget that image of yours the needy desperate one and start remembering the things they liked about you.
Just as they lay eyes on you, BOOM. You smell amazing. You look like you are doing great in your life. You look happy. You look confident, sexy, fun and attractive. You look like a catch. Why did I break up with you again? If you have been following this guide till now, then you know how to go about the first point. The right time to contact your ex is when you are ready. Believe me, a lot of guys and girls screw up because they contact their ex before they are ready.
It usually starts fine because their ex misses them due to no contact, but they soon go back to being cold when they figure out you have been faking. And they can always tell if you are faking. The best way to contact your ex after no contact is to send them a text, an email or a hand written letter. A hand written letter stands out in this age of digital technology. Of course, you can use an email as well. The medium which you use to contact your ex does not matter that much.
What matters is the content of this message. I call this the Elephant in The Room Message because you should acknowledge the Elephant in the room that you both broke up and whatever happened after and reset your image in the eyes of your ex. Purpose 1: To let your ex know that you have accepted the breakup. You are letting them know that you are no longer the needy desperate person who was refusing to accept the breakup. Purpose 2: To apologize for any of your inappropriate behavior after the breakup.
Purpose 3: To let them know of something exciting that is happening in your life. Just tell them something good is happening in your life. You are using curiosity to get your ex contact you. Of course, something must be happening in your life. Alex was a slob.
His ex loved him but slowly stopped feeling attracted to him. When her ex came into the picture, she hid it from him. When he found out, they had a fight and she left him. He begged, pleaded and did everything he could do. He wrote her a really long letter and left it outside her apartment. In case you are wondering, this was not the magic letter.
In fact, this letter was the exact opposite of what I usually recommend. It was long and everything he wrote in it reeked of neediness and desperation. Her ex replied whenever he texted her, but she was always cold. She refused to meet him.
14. Never relent
After about a month, she got back together with her ex. An ex, who used to be abusive at one point of time. Alex got his act together. He realized he needed to make a lot of changes if he wants to get her back. He started focusing on his career, got in shape and got rid of his video games. He messaged her again telling her how he has changed and that she should give him a chance. But her replies were still cold.
She still refused to meet him. When he came to me, he still loved her and wanted to give it a real shot. He was still needy and desperate and was seeing his ex through rose colored glasses. She lied to him about her ex which was a huge red flag. And if he wanted to get her back, he must stop being needy and be realistic about her. I asked him to do no contact again for month. Do the Advanced Healing Worksheets. Once he was ready, we drafted a letter together. He sent her the letter via email.
But his ex replied positively. They both spoke on text messages for a couple of days before deciding to meet up. This caused his ex to instantly feel attracted to him and was very curious in meeting him. When they met, his behavior, his vibe and his confidence confirmed what his ex has been thinking.
That he is a changed person. But wants it. Text messages should ideally be used after sending the hand written letter to build up attraction. You can even skip the hand written letter and move on directly to text messages. In most cases, I highly recommend a letter or an elephant in the room text before trying to speak to your ex casually.
An effective first contact letter can really help change the way your ex thinks about you. Text messages are great for building attraction with your ex. They are short, they are personal and you can be sure your ex will read your texts. If used correctly, you can condition your ex to light up in excitement whenever they see a message from you.

He was even going on dates while he was refusing to meet up with her as Mindy found out later. He thought that meeting up with her will make it difficult for him to keep his freedom. He thought that he might be cornered into getting back together.

I was some of them. View all 5 comments. Aug 27, Abhaga rated it liked it. Some interesting stories. None particularly insightful, but did bring back many memories from school times. It seems silly now but the book made me remember how real it all was. And not everyone may have got out of it unscathed. The few stories towards the end featuring Seema were specially evocative ending the book on a strong note. Jun 17, Peculiarblend rated it it was amazing. So Mrs. I really thought of sparing bit of time and contributing for this book.
Overall I was zapped by this wonderfully written series of short stories. If it takes longer, ask. Do not jump into guns. Just like I did before reading this book, I made classic mistake, judged it before reading it. Asking solves many unwanted issues. Makes communication easier. Just like men, women too have desires and it needs to be accepted without labeling them. Please refrain. We all lust about opposite sex and some, even about same sex. Typically book has more to give than its in your face title. I really recommend this book to all men. May 13, D rated it liked it. I actually wanted to leave it midway but I'm glad I didn't.

The only problem is that by the time I read through half the book, I felt that the stories got a little repititive.
