Woman hugging boyfriendTrying to think of ways to get your ex boyfriend back?  If you’ve just gone through a breakup, then this is what you may be thinking several times a day.  It’s no secret just how difficult a breakup is.  But if you want him back in your life, then there are a few tips you need to keep in mind.

Here are the top 7 ways to get your ex boyfriend back

1. Patience

First and foremost, remember that patience is essential.  You’re not going to get him back overnight and you can’t fix your problems in just one day.  Instead of rushing things, start with something simple such as being nice to your ex when you see him.

2. Step back

You need to resist the urge to call him or text him or even show up at his doorstep.  If you’ve recently broken up then this is a very bad mood.  You’re still emotionally unstable and it’s likely he’s not ready to see you either.  It’s hard to stay away from someone you love but you have to do it.

3. Embrace those painful emotions

Why would anyone want to embrace grief and pain?  But if you want to feel better again then this is the way to do it.  You need to grieve and accept what’s happened before you can get back up and try to keep your emotions in check.  When you’re done with the anger and hurt then you can have a clear head and think of a plan to get your ex back in your life.

4. Keep things simple

When you get the chance to see your ex, make an attempt to talk to him but keep the conversation brief.  Try not to reveal too much and when you see your friends, excuse yourself from him to join them.  This way, he’ll know that he’s not your priority right now even though talking to him has been nice.

5. Throw in a few compliments

Every so often, it wouldn’t hurt to throw in a few compliments his way.  When you talk to your ex, it’s essential to feel comfortable and trying to make him feel good around you would help.  Bring up the good memories you’ve had together and help him remember why the two you are meant to be together.

6. Avoid tricks or games

Trying to manipulate him or thinking of some kind of deception to trick him into coming back to you can only backfire.  The same goes with trying to make your ex jealous.  When you go out with someone else then you’re being unfair to this other guy.  Also, even tricks that would seem harmless can is not a good idea because you might lose him again when he finds out about your little deception.

7. Learn to love yourself

One of the best ways to get your ex boyfriend back is to learn to love yourself.  When you focus on yourself and your life then you become a stronger individual.  You have a better chance of getting his attention if you appear confident that when you look like you’ve been moping around for weeks.
