I am going to put it straight up. This is going to sound ironic, but one of the best advices on how to get your boyfriend back is to not do anything at all. For the first few weeks after the breakup, the most important thing is not doing anything with the objective of getting in touch with and/or to get your boyfriend back. Keep on doing 'nothing' for a couple of weeks and it is almost a guarantee that you will get your boyfriend back.
The first thing that you need to do is to not think about him, at least for the first week after the breakup. I know that this seems important to do, but it is the best course of action if you are thinking of making up with your ex. It is also good for your soul that you take a good rest. There are a few things that you can do to take your mind of your ex. Immerse yourself in your work. Join the gym or a sports club. Take a exotic weekend away with your girlfriends.
During this process, you will need an effort to make your self look and feel fabulous. There is nothing sexier to men that a healthy and put-together gal. Learn to love yourself again. Hit the gym. Start a healthy diet. Meditate. Improve your sense of style. Get a haircut. Get a wardrobe makeover. Doing all this will not only make you feel better but also help you get your boyfriend back.
Despite your efforts to avoid contacting him, chances are you and your ex boyfriend will run into each other sooner or later. When that happens, the last thing you want is for him to see you in a state of emotional wreck. Take care of yourself and make yourself feel beautiful and healthy. Seeing you looking fabulous and happy will tug on his heartstring to get back to you.
Your first face-to-face encounter with your ex after the breakup is the most important one. The key is to be as casual and friendly as you can. Be casual and look out for signs if he is interested in getting back with you. The conversation should be light and friendly. Make it seems that you are ready to be 'just friends' with him.
