I Broke Up With Him, Now I Want Him Back
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Does this sound familiar? You aren't the only woman walking around thinking "I broke up with him, now I want him back." It's more common than most women realize. It's a sort of buyer's remorse. You think you have it all figured out and that your life would be better off without him in it. Whether you believe he's holding you back, you're holding him back, or you just aren't right for each other doesn't really matter. What matters is that you've called things off and now you regret your decision.

It's true that you can't unring a bell. That doesn't mean that you can't make things right and save your relationship even after you broke up with your boyfriend. You can even get your boyfriend back if it has been a long time since you called things off. Well, as long as you play your cards right you can. That's the trick though; knowing the right moves to make and the right time to make those moves. It all looks so much easier in the movies when everyone has a scripted role to play and everyone responds according to the prescribed lines. Unfortunately, life rarely imitates movies. So this leaves you in a bit of a quandary as you explore ways to get your boyfriend back after you were the one who sent him packing.

There is one HUGE advantage you have if the breakup is recent. That's the fact that your boyfriend is probably still in love with you. He might be hurt. He might be more than a little bit angry. He might even be in the mood for a little payback – believe it or not this is a VERY good sign for you. But, more than likely, he's still madly in love with you so you should be able to get your ex back even after you broke his heart if you play your cards right.

Finding the Proper Approach

The hardest part of all this is finding the right approach to get real results. If you want to get your boyfriend back and save your relationship after you called it off a little bit too soon, you're going to have to make a sincere apology your first order of business.

You need to let him know that you never meant to hurt him and that you thought you were doing the best thing for both of you. You also need to let him know that the time apart taught you just how important he is to you and that you can't see the rest of your life without him in it.

If you want to know the winning formula to include in your apology take a look at the second chance letter and see how it can help you get your boyfriend back today.
