    Girlfriend dumped me, need advice on how to get her back.

    Alright, so basically, my girlfriend of over a year broke up with me. She says she still loves me but that the relationship was too stressful and she couldn’t handle it. I honestly don’t think that’s the real reason she dumped me but I digress. The night we broke up I decided I needed to employ NC (No Contact) for a month or so so that A. I could have some time to myself to get my sh*t together and B. She would hopefully have time to forget all the stressful negative things about the relationship and remember the reasons she loved me so much. However, a few days later I saw on her Twitter feed that she had found another guy (which I realize now is probably just a rebound) so I very impulsively texted her, not confrontationally, just asking how she was doing. We had a small chat and it ended with us deciding to continue to be friends. However, now that NC is off the table I’m not really sure how this friendship thing will affect my hopes of getting back together with her.
    Any advice?

    Just another detail, I’m pretty sure that she isn’t actually in a relationship with this other guy, more like a FWB thing.

    honestly the whole ‘friends’ thing is never a good shout and even if it’s mutual, it never works. you need to be honest with her. try and open her up about what was wrong in the relationship and how you can work to sort things out. do not constantly contact her though. don’t be needy. show her you are a grown up man (sorry not sure how old you are) and that you are worth dating. depending on morals you can even make up some bull sh** about seeing some girl. make her realize you are amazing. if it looks like its working, buy her some flowers or something to start making her feel special again.
