7. False Hope

By dreaming about an ex, we often give ourselves false hope that we might be able to get back together some day. But the fact is that in due course we realise that it was not the right path for us, and that our feelings have passed.

We wouldn't want to give our ex false hope, so why do it to ourselves?

It's natural to spend time post-breakup thinking about an ex, since feelings don't die straight away. It's not going to lead anywhere, however, so don't let it become obsessive. In time you'll probably wonder why you ever cared about them! Have you ever got back with an ex, and how did it turn out?


I would have liked this better if they told how to stop dreaming of an ex but the guy I ALWAYS dreamed of is back in my life so I guess I don't count
this post actually appeared on my phone as I was thinking about my dreams about my ex "I told him that eventually I will stop dreaming of him" because I'm not giving my new partner the commitment I ne...
I still think about my ex. he's with a new girl now, and I should really get over him. we moved away from eachother, so it became a LDR. he also treated me bad. he's with someone else, and I need to accept that.
I was engaged and left him .. I don't dream about him nor being with him . but I alwayd wonder what would of happend if we got married
I dnt have feelings for my ex but every now and again he pops up in a string of dreams... not really something I can control...!
Yeah, I totally agree with Maureen...it's out of our control and I dream about ex's all the time...hate it!
there is always gonna be that one ex that we will never loose feelings for
