A break up doesn’t always mean that your relationship is over. Second chances are possible, if you play your cards right.
Here are 3 ways to get your boyfriend back.
1. Give him space. Break-ups are highly charged emotional situations and sometimes this causes us to say and react to things differently then we would normally. If the heartbreak is fresh, give your boyfriend a few days to settle down and gather his thoughts. Giving him a bit of space at the beginning also allows him to start missing you and noticing what a gap there is in his life without you in it. Although it might be tempting to continuously hit redial and call him over and over until he takes you back, hide your phone and have patience. If he is going to get back together with you, you want him to do it because he loves you, not because you’ve backed him into a corner.
2. Have a bite of humble pie. Did he break up with you over something that you did? Or did you end the relationship, thinking you wanted something different but making a huge mistake? Either way, your ego is going to take a bit of a hit. Asking someone not only to forgive you but to trust you and love you again is a vulnerable thing to do, and the best way to go about it is to be honest and admit what you did wrong. Just like relationships, break ups take two people. Figure out where it went wrong, and what hand you played in it, and then quickly follow that up by saying what you would do differently should you end up back together. Don’t dwell on the problems, but make sure to acknowledge them rather than skipping over them.
3. Have fun. No guy wants to rush back into a relationship with a girl who is dramatic, overly emotional or angry. One of the best ways to get a guy to take you back is to remind him of all the fun times you’ve had together. Instead of going over to his house to talk for the tenth time, ask him if he’ll meet you for a quick game of mini golf. Any activity will do as long as it’s something you both enjoy doing. This takes the pressure off of him and you can be in the moment as a couple. The future is never certain, but you can make sure that right this very second he feels like the luckiest man in the world.
