What to Do When the No Contact Rule Does Not Work

This means that you stop texting each other, you stop calling each other, of course you stop seeing each other in real life. It also means no emails, no interaction with their social media posts, no sending funny photos you find, or comments on their friend`s photo they appear on. At the very least, the no-contact rule requires you to maintain radio silence for 30 days after separation. Depending on your situation, this void can be extended by a few more weeks or months. .
