A Big Dilemma

Hi Dr. Love,

I really need your help. My boyfriend of 2 years and 6 months left me and it's been 1 month now that we are not together anymore but I miss him so much. What happened is that I lost my job about 3 months ago and since that day we always argued and he was not patient with me at all and I could not even talk with him and tell him how I feel cause he would never listen or help me at all. Suddenly one day he just came home and told me that he didn't have any more feelings for me and that he doesn't want to be with me anymore. I was in shock and I cried telling him why are you doing this to me (to us). He was like cause it's over. So I accepted and let him go. But the thing is the first week  he called me so many times but I never answered and on the second week he called me 3 times and still I never answered. But this past week I went to see him at his job to give some stuff that he left at my house and I swear he did not stop looking at me (at my eyes) and I was like confused. But when I gave him a letter that I wrote talking about how I felt and that it hurt me that he left, I swear he cried when he finished reading it. We talked for about 20 minutes and suddenly he said to my face that he thinks about me and that he misses me so much but it will never work between us cause it's like the second time that he left me in like 2 years. But he asked me if I was talking with guys and I said to him turn the question to yourself and he said no I'm not talking with any girls. I was like happy inside, but when I was leaving he asked for a hug so I gave him one and he gave me a big one for like 2 minutes. After that he told me that I was beautiful and I said thank you. So I went into my car and I swear he did not leave the parking lot before I left, like he was still taking care of me and when I left he fallowed me and he just passed beside my car and I looked and he gave me a smile. So doctor I really wanna know what it means cause he told me that if he sees me with another guy he will be happy for me but I don't want  another guy. I want him. Oh I forgot too it's been like 2 weeks now that he did not call me and when he goes on Facebook he doesn't come and talk to me either and when I see him on Facebook I don't make the move to talk to him and I never call him. So please tell me what should I do cause I so want him back and please tell me what it means cause I'm so lost and confused right now.


I hear how much you are suffering.

I know you want him back. By the way, I've just written a new e-book called Make-Up Don't Break-Up. It will soon be available for download from my site, so keep your eyes peeled and read that book as soon as it's available.

In order to get him back, you need to understand what's going on inside his head and heart. He clearly loves you but, in his mind, the problems that exist between you are not solvable. He thinks this because you've broken up before over the same problem. Obviously, it makes no sense for him to try again when, he believes, you will end up facing the same problem and breaking upBreaking up refers to the dissolution of a romantic love relationship. Many people have a tendency to break up in order to preempt or discharge unwanted or painful feelings. For example, if you are...(Click for full definition.) all over again. His thinking makes sense except he's missing a key element.

It is possible for you both to resolve the issue that keeps backing you into a corner. I have the sense that you both have communication difficulties. When you're upset, he doesn't know how to respond to you in the way you need. If he's like most men, he doesn't have a clue on how to listen and understand your feelings. When he fails to respond in the way you need, he gets frustrated and angry over his limitations. Then he breaks ups with you because he can't stand feeling so inadequate.

This problem you have is common and easily fixed. Read my Make-Up Don't Break-Up book, which will show you how to let him know that you understand his frustration and why he doesn't see the point of trying again. Then tell him that you now understand what went wrong and that you have a plan for fixing the problem so it doesn't happen any more. That plan is reading my book Till Death Do Us Part (Unless I Kill You First), which will show you step-by-step how to listen and understand each other. Even if he doesn't read the book with you, you can still put the steps into practice and even guide him on what he needs to do to make it work with you. When you both feel heard and understood, your fighting will magically stop. You will see. My method has worked for thousands upon thousands of couples. Now it's your turn.

Expert Testimonials

"Love Never Dies is guaranteed to give immense hope to those grieving the perceived loss of a loved one. Dr. Jamie Turndorf, together with her husband, Jean, now in spirit, provide stunning evidence of the continuity of love and life, along with the tools to help anyone connect with those in the unseen world."

--Suzanne Giesemann,
Author of Messages of Hope

"Dr. Turndorf's eternal love story powerfully proves that our loved ones in spirit are waiting for us to reconnect with them! Read this amazing book and discover her new dialoguing technique, which enables you to reconnect and turn grief into peace and joy."

-- Mira Kelley,
bestselling author of Beyond Past Lives

“Dr. Turndorf's extraordinary memoir/self-help book provides astonishing proof that we don't die and that we are meant to reconnect and stay connected to loved ones in spirit. Read this book, learn her powerful new method for reconnecting and making peace with the deceased, and you will transform your grief to joy.”

-- Fr. Richard Rohr,
Founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC), and bestselling author of Falling Upward

“I found the book very helpful in guiding people to learn how to tune into spirit messages, and particularly liked Dr. Turndorf's guidance through meditations. In Parts two and three, Dr. Turndorf covered so many of the ways that spirits convey messages and this book will be a great help for people trying to get in touch with their loved ones.

Part 1 was her story of losing the love of her life. Reading about the pain and agony she experienced and SO MANY people experience will be healing to know that others experience the same emotions after the passing of a loved one. I think the first part could be a book on it's own merit because it is so beneficial to people dealing with the same intensity of grief.

As a scientist myself, I was glad to read that she didn't focus on a religion. As a medium, I have come to know that "god" not of a religion, but is the consciousness of all living things. Like Dr. Turndorf I've learned that all people are equal and all creatures part of all existence (and with "souls.").

I particularly enjoyed reading how she used her talent/mediumship to help people overcome their grief. Readers will get a lot out of this book and know that their loved ones are always connected.”

-- Rob Gutro,
Author, Medium, Scientist

“I could not put this book down!!! It is so gripping from the first few words, and beautifully written. Dr. Turndorf’s courageous story of her reunion with her beloved husband after his death and the heartfelt stories of others serve to validate what many may have privately experienced but discounted as just a by-product of grief and loss and not really “REAL.” The book’s simple and powerful techniques provide essential tools for connecting to loved ones in spirit and will allow scientists to amass new data from lay people, other than mediums. Your book will make a profound contribution to the now significant scientific data already collected in laboratories around the world studying survival of individual consciousness after death, while adding richly to our own sense of love and peace. Thank you for the Gift!”

“This is the most beautiful true love story that I have ever read. The depth of the author's love for her husband and her terrible grief at his death, and then her triumph as she learned to continue her relationship with him even after his death are all palpable. I lived it with her, and her story has stayed in my mind. For me, though, the reason to read this book is the author's wisdom in teaching her readers how to heal rifts across the death boundary. As one who has done extensive afterlife research, I can attest to the importance of post-death healing of relationships to both our dead loved ones and ourselves! Yet few people know how essential this healing is, and fewer still know how to begin it. As a prominent relationship counselor, Dr. Turndorf tackles this essential area, and she does it well. Hers is a wonderful book.”

-- Roberta Grimes,
author of The Fun of Dying: Find Out What Really Happens Next and The Fun of Staying in Touch

“Exceptionally well written from beginning to end, Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased is as informed and informative as it is inspired and inspiring. Especially recommended to the attention of anyone who is suffering from the loss of a loved one.”

-- Margaret Lane,
“Midwest Book Review”

“Love Never Dies is an astonishing and refreshing story of survival of consciousness. She clearly shows the many ways spirit can communicate through us and with animals and even objects. I could hardly put the book down, and I have read many of these types of books. This is a great read for those who have lost a loved one and are looking for answers to the ways spirit makes contact with us, and also how we can contact spirit to make peace. I highly recommend this book.”

-- Dave Campbell,
Certified Windbridge Research Medium (WCRM)

“When I held this 248 page spiritual giant in my hands, even before I started turning the pages I knew I had found a special guide that would help me through one of the hardest journeys I have taken. To love so deeply and completely and then to have the person removed from my physical life is hard enough, but then to find a way to stay connected with them is even more frustrating. So it was totally Heaven sent when I was asked to review this gentle messenger that helped me to stay connected, to recognize the connection and to even validate the connection. I also loved the way the author shared on such a deep and personal level it helped me to not feel alone and gave me courage to bypass my mind. I would recommend this sweet giant to anyone who feels the loss of a loved one. Thanks so much Jamie for the awesome blueprint. “

In her eloquently written new book, Dr. Turndorf has made their everlasting love accessible to all. Just as the uniqueness of their emotional connection radiated to me, it will radiate to you, the reader, in this groundbreaking work that will guide you to reestablish your relationships with loved ones in spirit... and even make peace, if needed."

-- Dr. Robert S. Pepper,
author Emotional Incest in Group Psychotherapy

"In her book, Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased, Turndorf teaches a method for dialoguing with the departed which holds tremendous healing potential for everyone who has lost a loved one. Turndorf is passionate in her certainty that we can actually communicate with those we’ve lost. Since reading Love Never Dies (which describes the dialogue process in great detail) I’ve used Turndorf’s technique and it has opened life-changing doors for me. It’s a powerful process, and I encourage everyone who feels ready to try it."

"I just finished reading Dr. Turndorf's most recent book, LOVE NEVER DIES, and I highly recommend it for everyone who wants to connect with a loved one who has passed on to the Spirit Realm. This book tells the heartfelt story of the author’s tragic loss of her husband and his subsequent messages to her from beyond the veil, and it outlines the steps we should take to communicate with the spirits of the people we loved on Earth."

-- Garnet Schulhauser,
author of Dancing on a Stamp and Dancing Forever with Spirit
