Hi newbie here just found the site and trying to asses my situation and formulate a plan. I've been reading everything i can this morning and need to post a question to help me along. Still learning all the lingo.
I'm a 41 yr old male who was in a 2 yr relationship with 42 yr female. We live 1.5 hrs away so its always been long distance. I created the break by taking advantage, started to hook up with old girlfriend which she doesn't know about. I blew her off for 2 weeks, fighting, etc.. and realize what i had wasn't so bad.
We are communicating via text only, she says we are on break while she thinks about what she wants but i'm positive she's chatting and going on dates with a guy who has been after her for a while.
Have passed back and forth 2 texts a day for a week and at a point i'm not getting any more leverage moving foward. I sent her flowers for anniversary and v-day yesterday and she said thanks they are beautiful but shut me down after that saying had to go. I sent her text saying happy v-day this morning, she responded but very generic message.
So do i just back away now and not initiate any more contact? Part of the issues we've had ongoing is my lack of responding due to being in long distance relationship and she felt neglected.
thanks for any help.
