Step Four: Let Him Come To You
A man places higher value on what he has to work for. When you miss your ex, don't make it easy for him. Instead of calling him during a weak moment, call a supportive friend instead. The space created during your breakup lets him actually see if he misses you. Let him wonder what you're doing. He will begin to contact you because he wants to see you, wants a booty call (definitely politely decline), misses you, etc. When he reaches out, respond warmly but appropriately until you know what his intentions and motivations are. Avoid having sex with him until the issues that led to the break up are resolved.

this is so perfectly stated! I agree with this so much and so many people forget this. No one should ever make themselves easy or lower their standards or settle.1
