Are You Doing It All Wrong – What Really Works To Get Your Ex Back?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When you're trying to get your ex back, you want to do it all right. You don't want to take any unnecessary chances. If you really love your ex and believe that he or she is THE ONE then you know this is too important to mess up. Unfortunately, this is one time when following your heart can lead you down the worst possible path for enjoying a successful outcome. In fact, it's nearly impossible to succeed by following your heart alone. Here are a few common mistakes that people in your situation make. They feel right but often go oh so wrong. Make sure you're not making them too or they could sabotage your efforts to get your ex back completely.

Some people trying to win back the lost affection of an ex will smother the ex with love and affection. This is something that a lot of guys do that land them with restraining or protective orders. Many men mistakenly believe that they were dumped because they didn't show enough affection to their girlfriends and decide to go a little over the top in that direction. The girl gets frightened because this is "out of character" behavior and it all goes downhill from there. This is not the way to successfully win back your ex after a breakfup.

Girls do this too. It is just as likely to backfire when girls do this as it does when guys do it – but for different reasons. Guys want a little distance and do not want to feel smothered (or mothered for that matter) by their girlfriends. They really don't want to feel this way by their ex girlfriends. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Make sure that's not what you're doing when you try to get your ex back.

It hurts to be on the receiving end of a breakup. There's no way to get around that fact. Getting your ex back can help you relieve some of your pain. That is why you're willing to work so hard to do it. Unfortunately, doing things all wrong will land you in a worse position than where you began. That is why it's best to learn the proper way of getting your ex back BEFORE you make some of the common mistakes that others are making.

What works? Believe it or not, granting your ex a little time and distance will work wonders for your efforts to save your relationship and get your ex back. But don't just take it at face value. Watch this free video: http://www.magicofmakingup.com to find out exactly why it is so effective and what you can do to make that "absence" even more effective for winning your ex back.
