Did you feel at ease, like you could be yourself? Or did you feel constantly stressed and anxious, always on edge? Did you feel judged, like you had to live up to some sort of expectation? Or did you feel seen and accepted? Did you feel like this relationship helped you grow as a person, or did it bring out the worst in you?
You should be able to provide the exact reason for wanting to get him back. Your break-up is never easy, even if you realized that your relationships was not exactly the perfect fit in the first place.
Once he sees and feels this energy from you it can often lead him to rethink why the two of you are not together. You should never have to try to convince him that you should be together. He needs to be able to view you as his prize to win.
From this point you can move on to the next stage of building the desire in him to want to be with you again. If the above three-step formula shows that there is still a chance of the two of you getting back together then it should be more than possible to re-ignite those flames of love quickly.
Treat your body to an exercise session and boost those endorphins. Whether your exercise choice is a run, yoga or a Pilates session, work out regularly. If those thoughts of your ex-boyfriend intrude at night, that exercise session will wear you out, making it easier to sleep, Cosmopolitan says.
I have an exactly the same problem with you. It’s about his Grandma passed away, he hasn’t a job, I was perfect in the relationship,…. Everything is the same. Now I’m confused and I don’t know what I have to do.
Ignore your ex’s life. Don’t show your ex that you are interested in him at all. When he posts updates about life events, like a promotion or a trip, don’t engage. Don’t like the post, don’t comment, and don’t mention it to your friends. Make it so your ex thinks you are totally off his radar.

Get dressed, put on makeup and comb your hair. Now, grab your purse and leave your apartment. This is probably pretty difficult, but it’s necessary. Staying busy in the aftermath of a breakup gives you less time to obsess over him. Remember, you had a life before him, and you can have one after him, according to the Marie Claire website.
I could not help replying to your comment. Your words struck a cord with me. I was left by the person who was my dream to have beside me. She left with the words ”I don’t want anyone but you” ”I don’t know how I could find someone to replace you”. So I will say this to you. Remember her even if it hurts. Smile when you do when you are reminded of the little things that made her unique. Don’t let her walk out of your life for good! Keep that connection with her but let her reconcile her… Read more »
I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for me. About a year ago I my partner split up, we had both made BIG mistakes in our relationship. he ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life.

I requested 1 to 2 day casting of the reunite us love spell and within 3 days mark company had relocated him back to our hometown where I still lived. We immediately reconnected and move in with each other. Our wedding date is set for February . Expect to see dr. kpomosa and his temple team all thanks to firstname.lastname@example.org for the relief.you can reach him for help his very reliable. Moesha Walter TX
The way your relationship ended can often give clues as to how you can get it back. By fixing certain things that are wrong with your relationship, you can both get back on the path to being happy again.
You may convince yourself that you have the sheer for of will to stop searching their pages—daily or hourly—but the truth is, you’re better off just getting the social media websites involved and asking them to be the third-party mediators in this situation. They invented a block option on purpose: partially for people to say sayonara to creepers, and partially to help people stop investigating whether or not their exes are smooching someone new.
I am in the same situation. I’ve had several relationships before but my ex was the first guy I really deeply loved. We had incredible chemistry and I was his first girlfriend. He had qualities that no one else I knew had and we shared many interests that are not easy to find in others. He was incredibly loyal and loving and even though I adored him I often didn’t show him how much he meant to me. I pushed him to work harder and criticised him for his failings – to me it felt like I was helping him and that once he was on track we would be able to relax and build on our future. I just wanted him to succeed but it made me into a misery and a nag. The last year of our relationship was very stressful due to university exams and uncertainties. He is very lazy which was a constant source of disagreement between us and I felt that it made me into a very negative person as I was worried that he would not become more organised. It was far too much pressure and I bitterly regret projecting my worries for my own future onto him. Our family lives compounded the problems between us as we were both very unhappy at home. Previously we had been at university together but being separated and in bad environments took its toll. He coped better than I did and I pushed him away. These arguments spilled over into our relationship and I allowed sadness and fights at home to turn into an ever present atmosphere of negativity and stress. He broke up with me and didn’t want me to contact him again. Our relationship had been very close and open – there was a lot of love, kindness and affection as well as the bad elements. After a few messages that day asking to work things out and telling him how much I loved him (he didn’t reply) I never sent him another message nor heard from him. 4 months later and I have hardly met anyone else or been intimate with anyone – physically or emotionally. I know that even though I will move past it (admittedly, we were not the most compatible) I will really struggle to find someone else who I connect with in such a deep way and who I find so special and attractive. I have offers for dates but even though the guys are handsome or are friends, I just don’t find them interesting in that way. I know that I will find someone else in the future and will have another good even great relationship, but I know that I will always compare things to my ex and part of me will always feel that my heart and soul is with him. I don’t think that there is anything that can be done about this – some people are more loving than others and when you just happen to be lucky enough to click with someone in a special way it is very difficult to lose that bond. I think everyone has the ability to be a ‘penguin’ (my ex used to say that he was one and that he could never be with another girl in the same way) but not everyone happens to develop a relationship with someone who they can click with. We were both lucky and unlucky in that respect because we met someone amazing but now have to adjust to life without them because things weren’t able to work out. I wish that I could talk to my ex and at least have a friendship with him as we shared so much together and the loss is very painful. But if you offer an olive branch and it still isn’t enough you must accept that for the other person their feelings are either different or they are resigned to not wanting you in their life.
Hi, my boyfriend and I were technically on a break when I started no contact. It was not a long distance relationship, but I am currently home from university, and I will not be back until early September.
You have to understand that you can’t get your ex-boyfriend immediately that is why you have to start working as soon as possible. Having job will give you a great reason to go out of your house. It will also keep you busy, and ultimately you will give up your old bad habits if you have any.
I have been a faithful fan of yours over 3years now and i must admit that your team has been a source of inspiration and help to me. Sabrina has been awesome. Thank you. My case is simple. I have always wanted to marry a white guy right from my childhood though I am a black lady. When I grew older after high school? I worked in a company where they have lots of whites. But I didn’t get to hook up with one because I had to go to college. I’m in my final year. I will be graduating next year and hope to get scholarship to study abroad. I am 23years old. if anyone can hook me up with some white friends I would be grateful. or simply just recommend me to someone. Thanks a lot.
So I broke up with my boyfriend 3 months ago because I knew that he wasn’t the “one” for me. We would constantly fight and we barely could relate on anything. After 2 years of dating, I still couldn’t see a future with him so I had to end things. The breakup resulted from a fight and happened all over text. I asked to meet up with him to talk about it in person but he said that he never wanted to see me again. He then blocked me on everything. I felt bad for breaking up with him because he was a nice guy, but it had to be done because we just had SO many differences. Now, three months later, we sometimes text, but every time we do it turns into him telling me how much he misses me and then we start fighting about everything. He told me that he could never be friends with me again because he was an “all or nothing” kinda guy. However, he was the person I lost my virginity to and my first true love so I can never truly forget him, and unlike him, I do want to keep in touch time to time but he wont allow that. And recently, Ive also started to miss him a lot. I miss talking to him more than anything. How do I get over him even though I was the one to end things? Not talking to him at all has messed me up because I am not used to it. I don’t know if I regret breaking up with him because I know i did the right thing. Its just that I miss some things about him and not being able to talk to him at all is killing me. I haven’t seen him in months and I keep getting remind of him because we have mutual friends. Please help me get over him. I haven’t been able to sleep properly for DAYS now because of him.
Oh wow, I feel the exact same way. You wrote it really eloquently. I turned 30 this year and met this amazing women and fell in love for the first time. She had to focus on her PHD studies and ran away since she would have no time and would only hurt both of us. I feel like this hurt me way more than if I would only have intermittent contact with her. This situation, to find someone that you could create a life together, only to have it flush your love down the drain because of her circumstances and… Read more »
Once you’ve heard what Randy has to say and gained that vital understanding to how the male mind works, you will be better equipped to use the following techniques to make him miss you and want to be with you again.
This is important. You can’t approach the process of winning him back lightly. If you’re not 100% committed and truly know you want him back, then none of the words on this page will carry you across the finish line. You’re going to have to both emotionally and intellectually commit to this plan for it to have its proven results. Plan it out. Use your due diligence and know what to say, when to say it.
Thank you Simon, this is great advice and has helped me a lot. You are right, we are wasting our emotions and thoughts on someone who has moved on and are probably not even thinking about us. We have to remember that they became our ex’s for a reason if things had been perfect we would have still been together,. My relationship ended 2 months ago after nearly 20 years (I am the one that ended it) I do not have time to waste another 20 years thinking about him. I need to move on and find my on happiness, and that is exactly what I am going to do!
When you guys meet up for dinner/coffee, whatever, don’t talk about the past , why you broke up and stuff like that. Ask him what’s new in his life, how he’s doing, maybe remind him of something nice that only you know about him that you can both laugh about it. Keep the conversation light. Super-emotional, could-a, would-a, should-a stuff will just bring you back to where you were.
MY EX and i broke up a week ago. I want him back. I believe we were good together. But we work together, any advice on how to deal with that? He explained why. He cared about me alot and didn’t want to risk hurting me because ehe was going through something. That he needed to be alone. I told him I was willing to be there and wait for him that wasn’t a good reason to end things. He said no I shouldn’t we went back and forth. At some point we broke up. But I said I’m waiting for him for a while. We were both crying. He told me if I’m still around and he was better we could try again. I just feel my heart is missing a piece
The answers to these questions can help you figure out the likelihood of getting back together and whether that’s a good idea. Even though a breakup hurts, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should continue fighting for a relationship that isn’t working.
It’s unnerving to be a in a lengthy relationship and then see it dissolve. Problems and tensions suddenly surfaced that I hadn’t realized were simmering below the surface and caused us to split up. Before we decided to get back together, we decided to see a marital counselor, and this turned out to be worthwhile for both of us. Being in the relationship we couldn’t see our problems, and the counselor was a neutral person who gave us some clarity. This clarity allowed us to really identify problems and work on them together. Ten years later – as we now live together – we continue to identify and work on problems together.
Frankly, you are active and living the ug life..that means you just have to make ug choices when it comes to relationships.. You have to set standards and limits. It’s ok to try to build rapport, but you have to set a limit on until when you’re going to do that..especially that you know he has another girl on the side.. The more ug approach is to ignore the other girl and build rapport but when the time comes that he knows that you know he’s in a relationship, and you’re still there trying, you’re either going to be friendzoned or used.. Because he would why would you invest a lot of time with a guy who’s already in a relationship right? He would either think youre5 just being friendly or you want him even while he’s in a relationship..
The message seems fine. And I think texting him on that particular day is fine, because ultimately you bear no ill intentions. If the relationship you shared with him was meaningful enough, he would know where you’re coming from, and that you simply wish to let him know that you’ll be there for him.
The most complete people I have ever met were the ones who figured out how to push that uncertainty out of the way and step outside their comfort zone. They gained a lot of interesting experiences and became more complete human beings. I want that for you!
If you think that by being friends with your ex, you can stay in their lives and hopefully get back together again, you are just plain wrong. By being friends you are not giving yourself and your ex enough time and space to heal. Not to mention, you will probably end up getting friendzoned by your ex. You could end up listening to your ex complaining about their new lovers (cue : Ex-girlfriends) or they might propose being friends with benefits (cue: Ex-boyfriends).
Many people don’t realize that a large majority of the pain they experience during a break-up has nothing to do with the relationship they really had. Relationships always end for a reason. It is rarely a complete surprise because things generally haven’t been going well for a while. There is often a long list of what each person did or didn’t do that led to all the fighting and hurt feelings. Most people don’t want back the relationship they actually had. What they mourn for is the relationship they thought they could have had if things had just been different. But the truth is, that relationship didn’t exist. Letting go of a dream can be painful. When the relationship first started there were expectations set for what it could be based on the good things that seemed to be unfolding at the time. Almost all relationships are great in the beginning—otherwise they would have never started—but the whole of a relationship is what it was from beginning to end.
Focus on yourself. Become a better you. The best version of you. The version that has always been inside you but has been hidden away by all the pain and hurt. Once youve found your better you and begin to love yourself…you’ll be saying “ex who?”. -M
To humility and self-awareness I would add skills. That’s why I wrote my book Power of Two and the website poweroftwomarriage.com. I’d sure love to see more folks access the gratifications of a fully loving committed relationship….
