Most Helpful Girl
You're right. No contact is the smart person's way of dealing with a break up. It simply is. It's also the more mature option and makes things a lot easier in the long run.
Someone just dumped. Meaning they don't want you. Why the hell would you want to give that other person any minute of your time if they decided "no thanks" when looking at you. That's how I feel. So no I don't play games. When my ex dumped me a month ago I blocked him and initiated NC. It has helped me tons so far.
