Going through a break up with your boyfriend can be tough, and it can leave you wishing that it never happened in the first place. Everybody will have a different type of relationship with their boyfriend compared to you but there are some common steps to help get your boyfriend back despite the fact that your relationship was unique.
Whatever you do, refrain from nagging your ex. Any nagging will only remind him of what he does not want in a relationship. Making the time you do spend together uncomfortable, will only push him further away. Your aim is to get your boyfriend back and anything that you can do to help that outcome will speed up the process.
Try to make any meet ups as pleasant as you can. Talk to him honestly but do not pretend to be something that you are not. If you do feel the need to pretend with him, you might want to think hard about why you want to get back together with him.
Being more positive in general will also help you move past any hurt feelings faster. Remember that you cannot change what happened in the past but you can change your attitude towards the future. It is likely that you ended up taking your boyfriend for granted and if so, let him know that you did because for all you know, he may have taken you for granted too.
The hardest time you will have when getting your ex boyfriend back will be when he has a new girlfriend. He will be thinking of you as a piece of his past, having most of his focus on his new relationship. The best thing you can do in this case is to remain nice and let him realize that he misses having you around.
There are a few steps that you can take that may backfire if you are not careful. Deception, even if it doesn't seem harmful, is one of those steps. Any lying can cause problems with your ex in the future. It is not worth the effort involved by tricking your ex, only to lose his trust if he finds out later.
Another step that can possibly backfire on you later is trying to make your boyfriend jealous. Dating someone else might make him believe that you have moved on. Not only this but it will be unfair on your date too. Keeping with genuine steps to get him back will ensure the best chance of success.
