Re: Is there an exception to NC if the man was the cause of breakup?
Take her off the pedestal man! She's not perfect and niether are you. Correct me if I'm wrong. Didn't she cuddle up to some guy in front of you? Despite all of your faults in the relationship did you ever do that to her? Don't make excuses for her behavior and don't place all of the blame on yourself (although you do deserve some).
Freeze her out for awhile and let her clear her head. She needs to miss you for this to work. Also, you need some time to yourself. Are you really ready for a relationship? It sounds like you were deliberately pushing her away and taking her forgranted. Maybe there are some things that you need to figure out about yourself before jumping back in. I'm just sayin...
There's no way around nc and your situation isn't that much different. I would suggest you wait for her to contact you. Because she will if you sit back, relax, and play your cards right.
