I'm relatively new. Similarly to some of you, I belong to the finance sector too (working as a forex broker) and I've got to say, I have really enjoyed reading the comments and threads created by this community in the time I've been here. I know it may not be my place to ask, but I've got a request to make if you guys are willing to hear me out.
My girlfriend and I split up around the start of the year because she felt that there wasn't any passion left in the relationship after being together for the last 4 years. She said that she loved me, but wasn't in love with me anymore. We agreed to remain friends, since we both work in the same building and had a bunch of mutual friends. I have to admit, it hasn't been easy to show up to work and pretend that nothing happened, If that wasn't enough, I usually even end up bumping into her several times a day as she smiles at me, and gives me a peck on my cheek casually like the break up didn't happen.
All that I've accomplished in the past month since the break up wasn't to move on, but to become more determined than ever to win her back (she isn't dating anyone at the moment). I know I haven't been the best boyfriend of late because of the hours I spend at work, but that's the choice I made back then, before realizing what I stood to lose.
I want to ask you guys if you think I have a chance at winning her back and what would you do if you were in my shoes? She mentioned that she lost passion for me, because I neglected her and spent too much time on work. If I manage to balance my time out, create new memories and re-ignite our spark, do you think it'll work? Of course, it wouldn't be a half hearted effort just to win her back before ceasing all efforts but something lasting because that's how important she is to me.
Appreciate any tips or advice you guys can provide!
