Making Your Ex Jealous   -   Will It Work If You Want Them Back?

Learn exactly how to make your ex jealous so that they will want and desire you again and chase after you to give it another chance. Also learn about the best methods to make your ex jealous and what to avoid.

You have probably heard a lot of good and bad stories about making an ex jealous. It really depends on what you want to achieve, if you want to get back at an ex for hurting you then jealousy is an effective strategy to show them what they have given up. On the other hand, if you are planning on using jealousy to evoke feelings of regret in your ex then you will have to be aware of the pitfalls. Should you want your ex back, you will have to conduct things in a certain way so that they do not end up hating you. The fact is that most people use jealousy in the wrong way when they are trying to get back an ex, they end up destroying any chance of getting them back because they have hurt the other person and pushed them away.

So, if you want to use jealousy to get your ex back you will have to be aware that it could backfire on you if you are not careful. If you follow the advice in this article however, you will have all of the practical techniques that you need in order to make your ex jealous and simultaneously pull them back towards you.

Method 1

An effective strategy is to flirt innocently with members of the opposite sex. Do not overdo this though as you will end up looking foolish and a tease. You do not want to involve someone else in your relationship problems either and using them, so make sure that you do not lead them on. Friendly flirting is ok if you both know where you stand. Not only will this make you feel better about yourself, but it will make your ex realise that there are other people out there who are interested in you. It will also make it seem like you have moved on and are happy. This will irk your ex quite a lot as it will make them feel kind of spurned.

Another positive aspect of this method is that it causes your ex to panic. They will be forced to think that you are slipping away from them and they did not expect this so soon. They will have been relying on the fact that you are pining on them and depressed about the break up. When you do not give them the satisfaction they will feel vulnerable and their safety net will be pulled from under them. When this happens they will make more of a concerted effort to get you back. This is exactly what you want, you do not want your ex to think that you are the one that is pleading them for another chance. This is the beauty of subtlety and reverse psychology.

Method 2

Go out and have fun with your friends. The last thing that you should be doing is sitting in the house mulling over the ruins of your relationship, this will not make you seem attractive and it will only put your ex off. Why don't you do some of the things that you have always wanted to do? You will find that you have a lot more free time now that you are single, so you should be putting it to good use. Your ex will soon find out that you are busy and taking an interest in new activities. This will make them jealous in that you seem to be coping with the break up much better than they are, then you will be much more likely to get your ex back.

When it looks as if you are finally enjoying yourself, once you are free of your ex, they will be slighted and jealous. If your life is full and active they will soon do some self reflection and see how their life is lacking without you in it. You will also appear more attractive to them and they will not like the thought that you are moving on without them. All this will inevitably mean that your ex starts to question why they broke up with you in the first place, they will see how happy you are and want to experience that too.

Your Next Step

These are a mere two of the strategies that you should be using to evoke sentiments of jealousy in your ex, try them out for yourself and see how effective they are. What you will need to do next is get ex back through making them attracted to you again. This is much easier than you think when you learn all about what attracts the opposite sex. If you are a guy a good start for you would be to ask yourself "does she still like me?" so that you can read the signs of her body language. If you are a girl then you will need to ask yourself "does he still like me?" and you can understand what clues he is giving off to you after your break up.
