    I don't really believe in the idea of "the love of your life" or "the one and only true love."  I do believe when you love someone you set them free.  Ironically, that just might be the best way to win them back. 

    If you love someone, set them free.
    If they come back they’re yours;
    If they don’t they never were.

    I have no advice for you because I don't believe in one person being "the love of my life" or my "soulmate."  When you give a person that definition, you will be disappointed when they don't meet your expectations.  For whatever why reason the relationship  went south, I would give the other person their freedom and not think about this person as "the one who got away" and waste time trying to get them back.  People put too much emphasis on finding "the one" or relying on that person to make them happy.  Personally, I don't do second chancies with any man.  If you leave me, then go and don't backslide.  If I want to leave, let me go because I won't be back.  It's that simple.  If it's broken, don't fix it because the same thing which broke you up will somehow repeat itself.  I have my pride and I am not needy.  It's all about what Arlene wants because Arlene chooses to be happy.

    Well I think that if they are worth it and loyal enough to stay with you then you shouldn't need to win them back. If they are stepping out on you then they aren't worth it and you need to find someone who truly loves you for you.

    I believe there's a love of your life, but you won't know who that is until you die. I think it's my husband, but what happens if we divorce and I find someone who I fall in love with in a different way than I am now?

    You said you were the one who went away and you're ready to come back, so do that. Tell your love and they'll either accept you or not. There's no real advice anyone can give you. We don't know the circumstances of your relationship or really anything about you two. All we can say is give it your best shot and if it works out, great, if it doesn't, that sucks but it's life.

    I'm not saying that to be cruel, it's just the reality of things.

    Get a cookbook, invite him for dinner at your place, and be honest with him/her!

    You know the saying,"If you love something let it go,if it returns it's yours for life."

    Well,what if when it returns they no longer want it,or they have moved on.

    I would think if he was still interested he never would have allowed you to leave and stay away.I still have contact with every man I ever dated,the ones I dropped and the ones that dropped me.

    Do you even know if he's available?

    Or does that matter?

    Rather than give you advice on ways to get him back, you really need to give it some serious thought before you even try, because the love of your life can break your heart too. It happened to me.

    If you want to win back the love of your life.  Totally forget SMS, FB Messaging, emailing etc.  You need to find a way to speak to them face to face and plead your case.  Then you need to walk away and give them some time to process what you have said, on their own, without any further contact from you.  If they decide to come back to you, on their own free will, then follow through with your actions by showing them how they are the love of your life - By treating them that way.  Goodluck wink

    Get over it.

    It wasn't the love of your life if it didn't work out. I know far too many who exaggerates everything. THIS WAS THE GIRL WHO GOT AWAY Disney crap.

    You shouldn't change or bend your behaviors to get someone back. He/she should love you just the way you are.
