How To Get Back An Ex Boyfriend  -  How He Views It

For many women facing a breakup the only thing on their mind is how to turn it around and get back an ex boyfriend. Not all attempts will be successful. There are a lot of common mistakes involved that are easily slipped into if you're not careful. You can avoid those mistakes and give yourself a better chance by learning the rules below and following them to the letter.

It's easy to slip in to bad habits and mistakes when faced with the emotional trauma of an ended relationship and that means you may act in a way that leads to regret. You're not the only one to face these problems but there is some good news - these rules are imperative to increasing your overall success - and they're always positively helpful if you are serious about finding out how to get back an ex boyfriend.

Make a Clean Break

As difficult as it may seem, you're going to want to vacate the premises immediately following the breakup. It may seem as if all respect your ex-boyfriend may have had for you has disappeared entirely, but that's not necessarily true. If you can get out before going off, his respect for you is going to grow. A lot of women break down in tears or try to beg their ex to change their minds - this does nothing for their chances of reconciliation. Just accept the situation for what it is and leave with your tears in check - and your self-respect.

Stop Communication

You need to dig your heals in and call on every single ounce of strength you have, because this one's going to be rough. Not speaking to your ex or having any contact with him whatsoever is going to go against all of your instincts, but you need to pull it off successfully. The better you can maintain your silence, the more your ex-boyfriend is going to start missing you. Once he misses you, things are headed in the right direction. If he's expecting you to chase him around, turn the tables on his expectations. Make him wonder about you. If he's thinking about you, you're well on your way towards reconciliation and you will be able to get him back.

Keep Moving

You probably feel like lying down on your couch and staying there until this terrible feeling of loss and despair passes. Unfortunately, giving in to that urge is going to do nothing to help you feel better in the long run. In fact, it's probably going to make you feel worse. Spending a lot of time alone where you can wallow in the negativity and let your imagination run wild is a horrible idea. Instead, grab some friends or family or both - and get yourself out of the house. Distraction is a great way to keep yourself occupied in a way that allows you to heal beneath the surface. If no one is around, throw yourself into something that you enjoy doing. By keeping busy you can keep the bad feelings at bay most of the time - and when they do show up, you'll be better equipped to handle them.

Enjoy Yourself

So you've gone out and experienced life with your friends, and it was okay. It was more than okay - it was actually kind of fun. Now it's time to up the ante and that means putting on your party shoes. You're single and you have no ties holding you down to anything or anyone - there is nothing stopping you from having the time of your life. If you do, your ex is going to be jealous of your happiness. He's going to wonder why you're not still crying over him, and for all intents and purposes he's going to think that you're over him already. That's exactly what you want - and that's going to be a huge advantage in your favor.

Swim in the Dating Pool

Dating may be the last thing on your mind following a difficult breakup but it can have a lot of positive impact on your own self-esteem and your ex-boyfriend's potential interest in you. Guys instinctively want things that seem unattainable and nothing is more tempting than a girl who is starting to see another guy. He's going to fall all over himself in the rush to win you back and all you have to do is enjoy seeing him squirm for a little bit. It may seem devious but it is an effective tool for getting back an ex boyfriend quickly.

Ignore His Requests to Stay Friends

It's incredible to realize how many women fall for the concept of friendship when it comes from a recent ex. He may ask to stay friends because he still has an interest in you - or maybe he just wants to keep tabs on you in case he changes his mind about the breakup completely. Regardless of his motivation, you need to stay strong and ignore his offer. Realize that it's only going to work out for you in the end. Not only will he respect you more but he'll want you more as well. He's going to be interested in what you're up to and by refusing to play along you're not giving him the inside track to your daily life that he was hoping to tune into.

Your Next Steps

You now know the basics, but you need to go into things in a lot more detail to be successful. Be on the look out for signs he still likes you, that is very important as you do not want to make a fool of yourself in front of him. He will be giving off clues that he isn't even aware of so you have to spot them

Another good idea would be to make him want you back. This can be pulled off with aplomb if you follow the right strategies. Instead of you running after him everything will change and it will be him that chases you!
