Does the no contact rule actually make your ex come back?

My ex that I dated over a year just dumped me 2wks ago and I haven't been in contact with him since the day of the break up. He hasn't contacted me but I just seen the other night walking by my house around midnight. Then again last night but with his friend this time around 12:30am. Which is odd because his house is pretty far away from mine to just end up walking by and nothing is open in my town at that time and I seen him do it twice. Plus about a week after the break up he started getting on FB every night which he hardly ever did before or after our relationship but knew that I get on it all the time. He keeps posting stuff about how he can't sleep. Plus the night of the break up he got on to change his relationship status and told his one friend that he couldn't sleep and that he is on because he doesn't want to be alone with his thoughts about the break up because he might end up breaking something. So that was weird because our break up wasn't an argument. Do you think he might not of contacted me because I got in a rebound relationship if it will help I will break it off.

Your story doesn't sound like HE dumped YOU; in fact, what you wrote seems quite the opposite.
The fact you've "rebounded" fast probably has p-$$ed him off as well. He's probably believing you played him. (I would!)

Well I certainly did not play him when I bought him nearly $10k worth of random stuff including a trip to Germany for both of us that we went on a month go. Plus he really broke up with me ever since he started hanging out with this kid who smokes, chews, drinks and does drugs he has been hanging out with that guy more and me and his best friend since like elementary less. Plus he would start lying to me about everything and anything. I got in a rebound relationship because he has been really neglecting the relationship for months so I kind of expected it. I only got in a rebound to help myself get over him. If anything he played me he lead me on then wouldn't leave me alone until I dated him then I ended up buying him stuff but didn't mind because we were in love then this kid came around and he decided I was no longer worth his time. So yea I definently did not play him.

Just give him some time.... He will get over you and you him. They say it usually takes about 3 months if it was a long relationship.

Yes, it does make your ex come back, but only if you do it properly and if one of the parties wants to get back together.

I would agree with SmittyJA24 though, based on your story it sounds like you dumped him, not the other way around?
