5 Ways to Make Him/her Want You Back

It doesn’t matter if you have been broken up with because of something you did, they did, or even if you’re the one that broke it off in the heat of the moment; there are few things worse than the agony of wondering if you’ll ever find the ways to make him/her want you back.

In order to get past this state of what can only be called sheer agony, you’re going to need to do a bit of soul searching to see if the relationship is even worth salvaging. If you believe in your heart of hearts that it is, then the following 5 ways to make him/her want you back are worth a try:

#1 Don’t Fight Them on Their Decision

Being told by the one you love that they don’t want to be with you stings and your first instinct will be to fight it. Instead, agree with them that perhaps it’s the right thing. Use the days that follow to process what’s happened and let them do the same. The crying and fighting will only drive them away, whereas backing off will make them doubt their decision. It’s just human nature.

#2 Take Responsibility for Your Mistakes

During a breakup you ARE going to hear about the things that you have done wrong. Acknowledge your part in the demise of the relationship and apologize for it. This doesn’t mean taking responsibility for everything that went wrong or begging them to forgive you. Just let them know that you’ve heard them and understand your part. Sometimes that’s all it takes to turn things around.

#3 Give Them Something to Want to Come Back To

Working on bettering yourself is never a bad thing and what better time to do that than after a break up? Do it for yourself and reap the rewards of looking and feeling better. Hit the gym, spend time with people that make you feel good, and do things that you were always putting off because of your relationship. This makes you more appealing to your ex and tends to bring out the qualities that attracted them to you in the first place.

#4 Don’t Ignore their Call

This is not about the “No Contact Rule” that you’ve likely read about in other articles while trying to find ways to make him/her want you back. If they try to contact you, don’t ignore the call and instead take it, make it clear you only have a minute to speak because you’re busy, and be pleasant. They obviously miss you if they are calling, so let them have a little taste by way of a short but sweet conversation and then let them go. That little taste will leave them wanting more.

#5 Be Happy

No one wants to be with someone who is bitter or negative. It’s easy to let your feelings about the breakup cause you to behave negatively, but all that does is confirm for them that breaking up was the right thing to do. You owe it to yourself and others to be happy.
