  • Are you asking ause your husband or boyfriend left you and you want him back or because you're in that situation?

    Here's the thing, if he left once what's to stop him from leaving again? Do you know why he left in the first place? Have you worked through those issues? Has he?

    Chances are once he's gone IF he's coming back it won't be for long

  • I agree with Kristi. The problem is, well, there is a problem to begin with. What is that problem? If it's a problem of his... unhappy, boredom, cheating, loser?? Then you really can't change that, and I doubt it's going to happen that he suddenly wakes up one day and becomes a better person. It doesn't work that way. I am sorry, because I know you are looking for a bright idea, story or wish that this will happen. What you have to realize is that it's really NOT YOUR problem, it's his. You need to believe in yourself. That you deserve better than a man who changes his mind.... right??

  • So he hasn't actually "left" as in filed for divorce, issue a break up etc. He just went and stayed at a hotel or a friend's house for a night or two.
    Good gracious get some counseling.

  • In these situations where one partner says they are unhappy but doesn't know why, I think its best for the other partner to encourage them to get counseling, and be there if they want to talk, etc but to go on with the rest of your life as normal and not buy into their personal drama. You can't fix why he is unhappy, he can't even name the reason. Tell him you love him, if you do, and you want him happy. You want him to go to counseling to figure out the issue, and youre willing to address whatever it is, but then focus on your normal life activities. Let him take charge of his unhappiness and deal with it. He has the final say....

  • My husband and I broke up after 7 years for a year and then got back together. That was 8 years ago. Our relationship is so much better now. We learned to listen to each other and to love each other.

  • Why would you want to be with someone who doesn't want to be with you? You deserve to be happy, loved and respect.

  • Not me but my oldest brother and his wife were separated for over 20 years and have been back together for the last 5 years. They said they got old and could tolerate each other. I am sure its more to it, but if its making them happy I am happy they are back together again....finally!!

  • If he's not man enough to stick by you in hard times, he's not a man who deserves you. Period.
