No Contact Rule: Let the Countdown Begin

Tabitha decides to cut ties with a guy. Can she survive the no contact rule?

I recently wrote about falling for someone that told me not too get attached. As it turns out I did not take my own advice. As many of you already know, I own up to my shit. So I’ve decided to try the no contact rule.

PLUS: I Fell for a Guy Who Warned Me Not to Get Attached

Before I decided to cut off all contact, he began texting me again on a regular basis. He came to my house to hang out while I had my period and even made plans for the following weekend. The weekend came along and he followed through unlike so many other times. He showed up at my house with Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and we binge-watched four seasons of “Orange is the New Black” (my fave) and four of “Game of Throne” (his fave).

Needless to say, after our time together that weekend I planned on spending a lot of time with him. I have experienced such a wide array of emotions since I met him in June, everything from butterflies to absolute dread, all with someone who has never even confirmed he ever had feelings for me. I believed that I was the exception to the rule. But he slowly started to cut contact – just not completely. He never completely goes away.

Now I’m here, enforcing the no contact rule. I have been reading a lot about it. How it works is simple: you cut off all contact with an ex after a breakup, or in my case a guy that’s just bad for me. I will cut off all contact for a minimum of 30 days. I will write about my experience by the week so that you can follow along. I will be very honest and let you know how it’s working for me.

I am currently on day three and he has yet to text me.

I am not even mad, I am just done. I am closing this chapter in my life for good. I will not allow this person to continue to fuck with my feelings and pop in and out of my life. Our”situationship” has been on his terms but it will end on mine.
