Every bit of effort you make should be for yourself. You know how people who are in long term relationships sometimes lose themselves and their individuality for a bit? Well, now is the time to get it back! Enjoy all the things you used to before you were in a relationship, or all the things your ex hated. Space can give you clarity. Not that I would ever advocate manipulation… but having mutual friends can be used to your advantage.
But you can make sure one of your friends sees you, because you know for sure this juicy piece of info will make it back to your ex. That will hurt his ego and make him jealous. There is nothing more unattractive than desperation. You need to keep a cool head and never ask him to come back, no matter how much you want it.
You want this step to come from him, so what you need to do is subtly get him to reach this conclusion, but without realizing you are trying to make it happen. He will come back to you, but if you ask, that will be a turn-off. If he finds out about it, even better. Your free time is all yours and you can spend it however you want.
Maybe this is the right time to take that dance class or learn self-defense. The world is your oyster! Does he have a new girlfriend, new hobbies, has he moved on with his life? Some of that might have been done to make you jealous.
My #1 Relationship Mistake (and the 'rule' that changed everything for me)
You should be glad about all of those! Tell him how happy you are for him.
That means no contact. It gives you both some time to focus on yourselves, and take some space to analyze the relationship a little bit. Every time you reach your goal, reward yourself. Instead, let him stew for a bit. Get back to him much later, in a polite tone, asking what you can do for him. Start living your life once again, take advantage of opportunities, and start planning the next steps.
Go out and make an effort to meet new people. Putting yourself out there is an important step in your efforts to overcome this break-up and live your life normally. Start going out, let your friends introduce you to their friends, and find new places to visit.

Any outing can be an opportunity to meet new people and have new experiences! Are you with someone else already? Have you moved on? Men hate nothing more than being ignored. Your job is to resist responding to his prodding. And most importantly, perhaps, is to not react to any attention-seeking behavior, like photos he might post with other women to make you jealous. The same goes for relationships — let the man go, and he will return.
Leave DAT Man Alone : An American / Jamaican Comedy Stage Play
As soon as you stop putting up a fight to keep him at all cost, he will start noticing your absence, and then start missing you. Listen, whoever cares less has the power. Keep your best poker face on and no matter how upset you are, do not let him see it. You have to be neutral or even happy, so that he can see that your world is not falling apart because of a break-up, and especially not because of him.
