7 Ways to Make Your Ex Fall Back in Love With You

7 Ways to Make Your Ex Fall Back in Love With You

Wouldn’t it be great if you could make your ex fall back in love with you again? Just think. No more planning and scheming to get him back. No more uncertainty. No more loneliness. In fact, he’d be the one chasing you. Wouldn’t that be the dream way to get your ex boyfriend back?

Of course it would. But right now, it looks impossible. Maybe your ex won’t even speak to you. Maybe he’s told you that you’ll never, ever get back together (Taylor Swift fan?); it’s over between you.

But think about it for a moment. Would it really be that hard?

In fact you have a major advantage over anyone else when you want to make your ex fall back in love with you. After all, you held his heart once, so you know you have the qualities to attract him. All you have to do is remind him why he first fell for you, and there’s a good chance that you can make your ex fall back in love with you again.

But Right Now He’s Got Other Things On His Mind…

The problem is the breakup, and the things that drove you apart. In place of the love you shared, there’s now anger and bitterness; and you need to get past that to have another chance with him. And if your ex has turned his back on you and doesn’t want to see or hear from you any more; then you can’t just rush in with all guns blazing and expect him to fall back into your arms. (You’ve probably been doing a bit of this already, and instead of getting your boyfriend to come back, it’s driven him further away.)

You need to be a bit more patient and subtle. In the end, your ex needs to feel that it was his idea to get back together, because then he’ll be not just a willing but an eager participant in your new relationship.

Unless he feels it was his decision, you won’t be able to make your ex fall back in love with you again. So follow these 7 clever tips to get him not just back in your arms, but eating out of your hand again.

1. Set Yourself Free Of Him

Yes, this sounds paradoxical, but what it really means is this; stop making your passion for him so obvious!

People always want the things they can’t have. If your ex knows he could have you back whenever he wants, there’s no urgency. He can keep you on the back burner indefinitely; he can even use you as a social backup when all else fails, or as a shoulder to cry on. Knowing that you will always be there, waiting around for him if he should ever decide he wants you, is the surest way to guarantee that he never will.

2. Make Yourself Scarce

Stop being at his beck and call. You’re not his girlfriend now, let alone his beck and call girl. Let him fend for himself. He’s a big boy now, and he can look after himself.

Your priority now is YOU. You have to build a new life for yourself – without him. The surest way to live a life in which nothing ever happens is to wait for events to come to you. So don’t wait at home, hoping your ex will call. He won’t, and even if he does, it’s better if you don’t answer. Go out and do something you enjoy instead.

Remember that your ex is not part of your life any more, and he has no right to expect you to “be there” for him. Even if it’s hard at first, you’ll find that the more you do, the more you will want to do and the less you will think about your ex.

3. Pamper Yourself

Make a fuss of yourself. Treat yourself to a few luxuries. Do the things you enjoy most, and do them often.

All your money is yours now to spend on yourself, so indulge in a few of your favorite treats. Do whatever makes you feel good, and make a resolution to get yourself looking and feeling great.

But don’t indulge yourself by overeating. This is not the time to give in to the urge to binge because you are feeling down. Looking good will show your ex that not only are you doing fine without him, but he has also lost a prize that was well worth keeping.

4. Appreciate What You Have

Instead of obsessing over how unhappy you are, think about the good things you still have. Make a list, if you have to. Your friends, your family, your career, your hobbies, your social life; all the things in your life that mean most to you. Things which, if you’re honest, you probably neglected a bit while you were together.

Being a “glass half full” person will give you a completely different outlook from the person whose glass is always half empty; and everyone else will pick up on your positive vibes. Being happy is a great draw. People flock to happy people, and crave their company. Happy people always seem to have something special, some irresistible allure, something which others want to share.

5. Let Go of the Past

Don’t keep obsessing over what went wrong, and what you could have done differently. Think instead of how different the future is going to be.

Dwelling on the past pulls you down and robs you of the will to make changes. You cannot change or undo what has already happened. You need to look forward and find reasons to be optimistic.

Having negative thoughts and feelings shows in everything you say and do, and other people will pick up on your negative vibes. And there is no quicker way of ensuring that nobody wants to be with you. Not only will you not make your ex fall back in love with you; you’ll be in danger of chasing away your other friends too.

6. Welcome the Changes

Even though you’ve just suffered a very unwelcome change – your breakup; try to see change in a positive light.

The breakup has happened now; it’s history. Further changes are inevitable if you are going to move on. But there are plenty of other things over which you do still have control. So use this as an opportunity to improve your life in the most positive ways you can.

Set goals for yourself and make a realistic plan to achieve them. Any kind of success right now, however small, will be an enormous confidence booster, and will show your ex that actually, you can do fine without him. All the words in world won’t convince him even a fraction as well as seeing you confidently turning your life around.

7. Love Yourself First

If you don’t find yourself lovable, then no-one else will.

Right now you need to regain your ex’s love in order to validate your belief in your own worth. But being happy with the person you already are takes away that need. When a breakup is truly devastating to the person who has been dumped, it’s often because they relied on their partner to make them feel worthwhile and valuable.

Learning to love yourself will take away much of the power your ex has over you, because you won’t need the affirmation of his love just to feel good about yourself.

Make Your Ex Fall Back In Love With You By Moving On

The paradox is that to make your ex fall back in love with you, you need to start moving on and showing him that he is not necessary to your happiness. The less sure he feels of your love, the more valuable and desirable it will become to him. It’s human nature. People never want something more than when they fear it’s about to be taken away from them.

And whatever happens, you will have started the process of recovery. You won’t still be in the dark place you were when you started out on your journey. Instead you will be on your way to somewhere new and better – and to making your ex fall back in love with you again.

  1. My boyfriend of almost a year was deeply invested in me. I loved him too but was never as expressive as he perhaps wanted me to be. Marriage was already in the tasks and we had met each other’s family. He is 36 and I am 31. After 2 weeks of fighting he decided to break up with me in January this year. My immediate response was to ask him to reconsider to which he said no and we went out of contact. In March i ended up contacting him for a favour and he responded very well. I still had strong feelings for him but i decided to return the diamond jewellery he gave me because just seeing them was too painful and i knew i will never wear them again. We met for lunch when i returned them and despite the awkward reason for meeting, we had a great time. After 2 weeks i asked him if he was okay with being friends(thought that would be a good way to get back with him) and he said he would like that. We have been on friendly terms since then but hes not much of a texter so we do not correspond very frequently. I was happy that he agreed to be friends, since we werent friends before we dated and neither do we have common circles

    Do you think i have given him conflicted messages by returning the jewellery and friendzoning him? i love him with my heart and soul but can not tell him that because another rejection will shatter me. What else can i do to get him back?

    • Why did you really give him back the jewellery? Was it perhaps because you hoped he would beg you to keep it, and come back to him?

      I ask because it’s kind of thing women do, and it never gets the response they are hoping for. After all, you didn’t really have to give it back to him, did you? You could have put it away somewhere you didn’t have to see it, couldn’t you, if you found the sight of it that upsetting?

      The jewellery was a gift, and returning gifts is both hurtful in itself, and a gesture of finality. That he remains in touch with you suggests that he may still have feelings for you, as does that fact that you don’t really seem to be friends in any conventional sense; you just text each other occasionally.

      You don’t say what caused the fights that led to your breakup. As far as your ex is concerned, I imagine he’d want to know that those problems could be solved before he’d think it was worth trying again. Can they? Have you given any thought to this since you’ve been apart? Because if not, this is where you need to start.

  2. My ex and i have been together for almost 8 years. I cheated on him and he forgave me and as we were starting to progress to something good, I made another mistake. I used the card of his mom, to purchase things since I lost my money. I was so scared so I told him about it and he wants time off since he wants to focus on himself he told me I damaged him pretty bad after the cheating and this. I was not thinkinh properly

    • You didn’t “make a mistake”, you stole. I could ask how you came to “lose” your money, or how you came to be in possession of your boyfriend’s mother’s card, let alone the means to use it, or what “things” you couldn’t live without, or why you didn’t talk to your boyfriend about it and seek his support, but I’m not sure it would help. Having forgiven you for cheating on him (why did you cheat?), your boyfriend is now looking at a thief and a fraud, and the person she has wronged is his mother.

      How to you intend to repay her? How do imagine that your boyfriend can trust you after two such betrayals? You shouldn’t even be thinking of yourself, but of the two people you have wronged, and how you are going to make restitution to them.

  3. In love with by boyfriend of six months,we had a quarrel,he ignored me for weeks,I apologised he said he has forgotten about it but we should just be friends,that he doesn’t want to deal with his past relationship dramas,he’s too emotional and won’t recover if we stay together and it ends .it’s difficult getting ova him cs I still love him and I know he does love me,I see the way he looks at me,he said he still hv feelings for me but he pushes me away as his own defence mechanism against feeling hurt.

    • He sounds as if he doesn’t like being confronted with emotions, especially emotional dramas. Has he suffered some particularly painful emotional trauma in the past? No matter how much he dislikes it, he will have to get used to coping with some degree of emotional demands, or else live entirely divorced from normal relationships. Does he really want to spend the rest of his life in a sentimental and spiritual desert?

  4. Me and my ex broke up a week ago.the reason he gave me was that I don‘t pay him enough attention..we broke up in bad terms and I ended up blocking him.but three days ago he sent me a message via telegram asking me how I‘m doing and whether i went out or not.i was angry at him and wasn‘t ready to answer him.so i ignored him.the next day he sent me a message again telling me to answer and he sounded desperate.but I ignored him again and he said goodbye.i know he will show up again.what should I do?should I ignore him again?i was there for him always and he broke up with me for such a trashy reason..shouldn’t I punish him?

    • He probably doesn’t like being ignored. Maybe it’s the first time he hasn’t been able to make you do what he wants. It’s a new experience for him, and he doesn’t like it. Keep it up.

  5. I dated him for 2years and i accused him of cheating with his ex we broke up i was scarce then he texted me which ended up in another fight and we weren’t talking for some days he texted me but we fought and i pleaded and begged him to take me back and he said no it’s best if i move and that he’s not good for me and i survived a day without texting and told him i totally agree with the break up and am happy on ma own and he was like hes sorry for hurting and i try to make him jealous and he asked if i have gotten a new boyfriend and i told him that shouldn’t be his concern and he said yeah please tell me what to do i really love him and want him back

    • Accusations, fights, followed by begging and pleading. How long was your relationship like that? Why did you accuse him of cheating with his ex after you have apparently been a couple for 2 years? It suggests your relationship may never have been very happy or stable. Did you have any grounds for suspicion?

      This is no way to live a good life. Take some time out to calm down without contacting or seeing your ex. Ditch the drama, and try to get a firmer grip on what’s really going on, and whether you are really right for each other. When you can do that (and not before), you can think about the future.
