Should I Call Him After a Breakup?

Call Him If You Are Still In Love

Determine whether or not you are still in love with him and how healthy your relationship was before it ended. According to Diana Kirschner, PhD, author of "Love in 90 Days: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Own True Love," if the answer to both those questions is 'yes,' then it is okay to call your ex.

You Need to Get Over Him

Staying in contact with an ex can prolong the pain. Christine Webber, psychotherapist and life coach, advocates cutting all contact with your ex to help you move on. After your relationship ends, your skewed thinking can make you believe you will never find someone to love you. To move on, you must grieve for the relationship and accept it is over.

Bottom Line

If you are still in love, and think you can resolve whatever caused you to break up, try calling him. However, if he doesn't want to get back together you need to let him go. Lean on your friends, cry for the love you have lost and get ready to move on.
