It's no secret that breakups can be traumatising, especially when you've convinced yourself that the person you have lost really is 'the one'.
Natalie Iraola, 28, explained that she and her boyfriend, Diego, 32, broke up after their relationship became 'too intense' after they met at May 2014 house party and quickly moved in together.
However, she wasn't going to let Diego go without a fight, and heartbroken, Natalie googled 'how to get your ex-boyfriend back.'
Needless to say, as you can find just about anything on the internet, a website promised Natalie that following its advice would do just that - and she decided to give it a go.
It warned against being 'desperate' and told her not to 'text him emotionally' and after their initial short-lived relationship, the couple reconciled in September 2014.
They are now happily married with a young child, and Natalie has credited their successful reunion to the text messaging service.
The HR team leader explained: "It shattered my soul when we broke up and I knew in my heart that he was the one.
"I Googled how to get your ex-boyfriend back and found this website called ‘How to get your ex back permanently.’
"I signed up for daily text messages to tell me what to do to achieve that.
"It would tell me not to be desperate or text him emotionally.
"It told me to go no contact at first and if he reached out it told me to talk about the positives in my life.
"I'd want to text 'I want to get back together' but I waited and just told him how I was doing well at university.
"It meant we each worked on ourselves and then just organically got back together.
"It was meant to be."
She revealed that Diego proposed in May 2017 and the pair got hitched a month later before welcoming their daughter Stella in June 2019.
The now 27-year-old explained that when the pair met at a May 2014 house party, they formed an instant connection.
"He was into Disney like me and was a family guy," she said.
"We became inseparable.
"But we moved in together early on when I had no where else to live and it became really intense too quickly so we ended things."
She said that the text messaging service managed to keep her on an even keel when navigating her break up with Diego.
"I'd get texts like 'today you're going to be strong and not text your ex,'" she said.
"There was no pressure to get back together.
"I didn't want to force anything but I'd never felt anything like I felt for Diego.
"We gave each other the space and would just check in with each other.
"It worked because we got back together two months later and the rest is history."
Natalie revealed that the pair went on to move back in together in February 2015.
But she admitted: "I think if I hadn't used the website I would have made it emotional and messier."
For obvious reasons Natalie kept her lips sealed to Deigo about how she managed to get him back, but after being happily married for years, she finally told him about the text messaging service.
Natalie said: "I told Diego about it two years ago.
"I wasn't going to ever tell him but he's locked in now.
"People want there to be a magic potion to get your ex back but there is only so much we can do.
"Follow your heart and if it's meant to be, it will work out."
Diego said: "I was fascinated that something like that would work.
"And at the same time I'm not. Natalie is very methodical but the fact that she fell into what I would say is a gimmick is funny.
"I think we have both helped each other in this relationship grow and seek our truest selves. As cliche as that sounds."
