What to Say to Your Ex Boyfriend to Get Him Back – Stop Acting Desperate & Follow These Tips Right Now

Are you reeling from a difficult breakup? Are you wondering what to say to your ex boyfriend to get him back?

Almost every woman will go through that situation at one point or another, and most of them will end up making the same mistakes that drive men away.

Don't let that happen to you-- use a few simple psychological tricks to bring your man back to you:

1) Desperation is not a good look.

If you want to know what to say to your ex to get him back, chances are you've considered telling him how badly the breakup is affecting you, in the hopes that he'll change his mind.

Don't! Saying that will make you come across as needy, and it's a well-known fact that people generally don't want “low hanging fruit.”

If it seems too easy for him to get back with you, it can actually end up decreasing your ex's desire to do so.

2) Men want what they can't have.

This doesn't mean that you should make it unreasonably difficult for your ex boyfriend to come back to you if he wants to, but you should avoid making yourself look easy.

The truth is, when a man breaks up with a woman, he actually increases how desirable she is to him. The ultimate goal here is to look as though you've gotten over him, moved on, and are ready for a new, healthy relationship. If he's smart, he'll want that relationship to be with him.

3) Make him jealous.

No, this doesn't mean rebounding with the next guy who comes along. Trying to make your ex jealous of another man rarely works, and it can make you end up feeling sleazy.

Instead, make him jealous of your happiness and positivity. Keep your conversations with him upbeat, and emphasize the exciting, positive developments in your life since splitting up.

Even if you're still hurt from the split, you might find that acting happy helps you feel more relaxed and at peace.

4) Avoid being spiteful.

Sometimes, it's easy to become desperate to find some sign that your ex still cares about you. You might be tempted to say things to hurt him or make him sad, reasoning that he wouldn't feel that way if he didn't still love you.

Not only is that not true, but it's not a very healthy new start to your relationship if you're aiming for a reconciliation.

5) Do and say things for you, not him.

If you want to know what to say to your ex to get him back, focus on positive changes you've made for yourself. They say that nothing is as sexy or attractive as confidence, and being a stable, independent woman with a new lease on life is a sure-fire way to get your ex's attention.

Understanding what to say to your ex to get him back is as easy as understanding how the male brain works. By appearing happy, confident, approachable, and content to live your life (with or without him), you'll leave him wondering why he ever left you in the first place.
