how do men live when the ex girl is gone? no social media, she won't reply to texts, etc

Not only is it wrong because it’s not about love, but about trying to trigger the fear of rejection and/or abandonment in someone who already fears rejection/abandonment. It’s also wrong for you trying to get your ex back because what you are doing is shutting all the doors, windows, vents, chimneys (all access your ex would use to get to you), and then sitting by the door and checking the windows and vents hoping that your ex will burst open and come begging you to take him/her back. Good luck with that.
But I do agree with this! No contact is no good mate. It works sometimes, yes. But when your partner returns the relationship is already at a point where it doesn't need to be and probably will leave again shortly after.

It doesn't work for everyone. If you deliberately ignore a guy you are just " teaching "him how to live without you in his life. So it would be easier for him to move on from you. The less contact you have with someone... the quicker their feelings fade.
The no contact rule is just really a mind game. Only someone emotionally immature would fall for it1
