People get together for a host of reasons and breakup due to a range of circumstance, but not all ex lovers regret their decision. If you’re ready to move on but want to make your ex regret their decision to leave you behind, consider the following information. This is how to make sure your ex will have doubts.
I Wanna Be In Pictures
After you breakup, you’re still connected through a mélange of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Even if he’s not stalking your profile, it’s likely that your posts appear in his social media stream. If you really want to get his attention, start posting pictures of you with a few hot guys. They could be your friends, yet if he sees you in pictures with attractive men, he’s sure to think twice.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
If he left you, he probably thinks that you’re sitting at home and sulking about the breakup. However, similar to the method above, if you’re posting pictures of yourself with hot guys and having fun, he’ll get sour thoughts about letting you go. Be sure to fill your calendar with fun events and activities. Never miss a chance to capture it all on your smartphone so you can instantly or subsequently upload it to your favorite social media platform.
Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make Me a Match
You may have mutual friends or hang out at the same places. If you really want to get in his head, tell him that you have someone you would like him to meet because you think they would make a good match. He’ll be blown away that you’re willing to play matchmaker, but he’ll be more amazed that you’re so over him that you’re willing to introduce him to other women. Of course, be careful as to who you’re introducing. He may actually be interested in her, and if it’s one of your friends, things can get pretty messy.
A Little Primping Goes a Long Way
If you’re going to see him at school, a party, a wedding, etc, be sure that you’re looking your best. Shell out the extra money to do your hair and nails; go to the tanning salon; and, choose a form-fitting outfit to wear to the occasion. Obviously, he is physically attracted to you – he dated you! So, be sure to raise the bar a bit and completely blow him away. When he sees you, he won’t be able to help from taking a second look and reconsidering the breakup.
The Silver Lining of New Horizons
Confidence is sexy. Even if you wish you were back together and you’re missing him, it’s not going to do anything positive for you if you’re sitting at home. Get out and have adventures. Do a few things that you always wanted to do – take a trip to Africa, learn how to surf, start going to yoga, etc. Gain confidence by embracing new horizons. Be sure that when he sees you in the future, he’s confronted with an evolved and confident version of yourself. The last thing you want is for him to think he was the best thing that happened to you and now you’re a shell of your former self.
There’s a New Guy In Town
Regardless of the circumstance and who broke it off with who, ex boyfriends never want to see their former lovers with another guy. Find another guy to spend time with. This is exactly how to make your ex to miss you after a breakup. He doesn’t have to be a new boyfriend, but it’s best to let your ex know that you’re over it. Start slow with the new guy and see where it takes you. However, as far as your former boyfriend, seeing you with another man will definitely raise a brow and a few doubts about his decision to let you go.
Play Dumb to Facts
If you get into a conversation with your ex, ‘play dumb’ when it comes to what is going on in his life, even if you are aware via friends, social media, etc. Appear as if you’re overall disinterested but be responsive enough as not to seem like you’re doing it purposefully. He probably assumes that you are just as interested to know things about him as you used to be. Let him know that things have changed, you’ve moved on, and you have a fresh perspective on life. You have things ‘going on,’ which leaves little time to keep tabs on him.
