Hello Dr. Joy,
My ex and I broke up a little over 6 months ago and I’m still having a lot of trouble getting over the fact the relationship has ended. We dated for 1.5 years and everything seemed to be going fine when he told me that he did not think he was ready for a commitment. He still calls and texts from time to time which leads me to believe that he may be reconsidering his decision to end the relationship. I always respond because I don’t want him to think that I don’t care about him anymore or do anything to upset him. I still have hope that we will get back together if I just keep the lines of communication open and show him that I am still interested. Do you think I am wasting my time?
