Did he break up with you? Or did you finish the relationship but now regret it? If you were together for a long time, it is easy to take a good relationship for granted. We often don't realize what we have until it is gone.
If you are the only one of your friends in a long term relationship, you may have felt that you were missing out on the fun times and so wanted to be single. Or maybe the sexual side of your relationship had settled down and you felt a greater attraction to the cute bartender at your local club.
It is hard to keep the romance going in a relationship and often we forget what first attracted us to the men in our lives. There is also the factor that someone elses life is always more interesting. Why is it that the grass is always greener on the other side? You should never forget that appearances are deceptive and your beautiful next door neighbor's smile might be hiding a nightmare existence.
So now you have realized that the cute single guy is on his own for a reason and you want your ex boyfriend back. You are going to have to work hard to gain his trust again. After all, you probably hurt him quite badly by dumping him particularly if there was no real reason why other than you were bored.
Call him and ask him out to dinner. Wear his favorite clothes and perfume. In short, make a huge effort to remind him why he fell for you. Apologize for your behavior. Blame your hormones, your job, stress or your boss but do not put any of the blame on him. This is not the time to list out all the reasons why you were bored or fed up. You want to build his self esteem not destroy him.
Ask for a second chance. Remind him of all the great times you enjoyed together. Tell him that your time apart has made you realize that he is the only man you are interested in. Unless you know he wants marriage and kids, don't go too heavy on this tactic. Keep it light. Stroke his ego by letting him know how much you want him. Reassure him that you are 100% sure that this is what you want.
You have to be prepared to hear some home truths on what he thinks of your behavior. He will need answers to his questions and will probably need to let off some steam. Do not retaliate or get involved in trading insults. Listen to what he has to say!
After all if you want to know the answer to how to get my ex boyfriend back, you may just have to ask him.
