Forgot an episode title

I remember the first time i listen to modern love podcast about a man who’s having a rough breakups, he said he met some psychiatrist and sounds kinda depressed. Then he emailed his ex and trying to get her back and stuff. But turns out they’ve only dated for a month. I want to listen to that episode again but i don’t remember the title or the actor who read the essay. Can anyone pls help me?
