How Do I Get My Ex Boyfriend Back?
Breaking up is one the most difficult emotional experiences anyone goes
through in their life. It feels like the world is ending, like you will never be able to enjoy life again and
nothing is worthwhile.
It's easy enough for your friends tell you to get over him and move on, but if you're like most
women you're probably wondering how do I get my ex boyfriend back.
The fact is that your chances of getting your ex boyfriend back are probably better than you
can imagine. I realize it right now things may seem hopeless, but there is always hope. Not only that, but it
is the rare successful long-term relationship that hasn't had a breakup somewhere in its history.
I'm going to make some suggestions about how you can get your ex boyfriend back. I'll
suggest what to do and just as importantly what not to do. I'll also point you to some more detailed
An Important First Question
As I said, chances are better than you think that you can get your ex boyfriend back so before
you go about doing that, it's important that you decide whether or not getting your ex boyfriend back is really
the best thing for you.
As committed as you were to the relationship and as good as some aspects of it were, it's very possible that it
wasn't in your best interest.

For example, I had a friend whose boyfriend moved with her after college to the city where
she was going to graduate school. They were living together, but as she found out later his trips "back home" were
to visit another girlfriend. He eventually broke up with my friend.
As you might imagine, she was devastated but she eventually got over the pain.
A year and a half later, he was e-mailing her again suggesting he was thinking he may have made a mistake when he
left. By that time, my friend was over him completely. She was able to see that although he had many desirable
characteristics (good sense of humor, kind, well mannered, etc.) he was at base a very needy person and someone she
didn't care to have a serious relationship with.
You really have much more control than you may realize now. It's important to decide if
you really do want your ex boyfriend back. If so, read on.
What Not To Do To
Get Your Ex Boyfriend Back
To begin, it's important to avoid some common mistakes. If a man has left the relationship
nothing is going to push him farther away quicker than a pleading, whining woman pestering him.
Don't leave endless voicemails. Don't promise to change everything if only he'll come back.
Don't try to convince him that he is your "one and only" and you are the love of his life.
In short, no pleading or whining.
Men like to pursue a woman.
Well, maybe they don't like it, but they sure seem a lot more interested in something they think
they have to work to get. If you give them the impression that you're available any time they feel like seeing you,
they tend not to value the encounter very much. As quaint as it may seem in today's feminist world, there's
something to be said for the old play hard to get routine.
Things To Do Early After the Break Up
After a breakup, it's good to take some time for yourself. Not only is it good for
you, but as you take care of yourself physically and recover emotionally you'll be much more desirable.
Think about it. If you were a guy, would you really be attracted to a whiny, emotional wreck?
Don't you think you'd be much more interested in a woman who enjoyed life, was comfortable with
herself, and was active and involved in the world?
So plan on spending some time working on yourself. During that time, minimize the time you
spend dwelling on the relationship. It's not realistic to ask you not to think about it at all, but you can
limit it to 15 to 20 minutes a day.
Pack up the photographs and mementos and anything else that might trigger a memory
of the relationship and put them away in the back of your closet for a while.
Enlist the help of your friends to keep you active and busy. Spend time with hobbies and other
interests that you may have let slide when you're in relationship or develop new interests.
A Suggestion That Might Surprise You
One thing you may do shortly after the breakup that may give your boyfriend second thoughts is
to agree with him that seperating is a good idea. That may seem counter-intuitive, but it is an excellent
way to get him to begin to doubt his decision to leave.
You can send him a short note or e-mail saying something along the lines of "You know, I was
pretty upset when you first told me you wanted to breakup but now that I think about it, I realize that you are
probably right. I wasn't completely happy either. Things weren’t completely the way I would prefer them and maybe
this is the best thing for us”
Continue on for another line or so but keep it short. Wish him well and end it.
If you avoid the mistakes I mentioned earlier, work on yourself, follow the tips I just gave you
and use this approach you'll be in an excellent position to get your ex boyfriend back.
