Dear BreakUp Coach,
My boyfriend and I broke up about 3 months ago when he decided that he "needed space" after being together for 3 years. He's called a few times, usually every couple of weeks, just to say hi and see what I'm up to. Every time he calls I'm so happy to hear from him and talk to him, but when we hang up I feel sad and empty, especially since he never mentions anything about getting back together. Then the night before last he called at 1 AM, sounding like he might have been crying, and definitely like he had been drinking. He told me that he missed me and that he might have made a mistake breaking up with me. Now I feel all turned around. Is it possible that the alcohol gave him the courage to say what he's been wanting to all along, that he really wants to get back together? What can I do to help him tell me how he's really feeling?
