Getting Your Ex Back - 6 Tips to Help You

Jul 3, 2008
When you've just had a blowout with your partner and you suddenly find yourself alone and calling him your ex...it's a rough time where most people just want to find a way to pull the pieces back together and get life back to how it was. Unfortunately, it's not exactly easy to figure out what to do to make that happen, which is why I've written this short list to help you out.

1) It may feel counterproductive to your ultimate goal of getting him back, but it's actually the best thing to do right after the breakup to cut your ties and sever contact for about a month's time to allow the both of you to get your heads on straight. Your ex can't miss you if you're still seeing each other, and this time will let both of you re-evaluate how you feel.

2) Forget the romantic-comedy way of dealing with breakup pain. Lounging around soaking your couch with tears as you dejectedly pine away for your lost love until the world around you fixes your problems isn't going to cut it in the real world. Getting your ex back in real life requires action, and action made by YOU!

3) Just because you are your only main resource doesn't mean you can't have a little support. Being with great friends or close family can do wonders for you, uplifting your spirits and helping you heal. I recommend spending a lot of time with people who love you, it'll do you a lot of good and when you feel better you'll be better-equipped to get him back.

4) Don't waste your month of freedom from your ex by sinking into a depression...take advantage of your time for taking steps to get your life back on track. Do whatever makes you feel good, and now is a great time to do self-improvement things you've always put off, like starting an exercise program or other healthy resolutions. When you can accept that your life isn't over without your ex, you'll find that working to get him back can only result in your life getting even better!

5) You can't count on your ex to fix the relationship...he's had his go at it, and it left you alone. If you want this to have a happy ending, you are the one person you can count on to make it work. Plan your strategy for getting your ex back so that you don't have to rely on him for anything. You are your own greatest asset.

6) Things don't fix themselves, and even when they get fixed they don't always stay that way just by default. When you do get your ex back, it's important not to let this happen again. The things the two of you resolved when you got back together should never affect your relationship again, and it's YOUR job to make sure of it. Letting things go again just because the hard part seems to be over is nothing but a great way to bring about more trouble and heartache. If you really value your relationship, take care of it.

The main thing I've been trying to get across is that your life isn't over when you lose a loved one...you can get over the pain and get him back if you just put yourself into it. Motivation and perseverance will help you win the day, and it isn't just possible to win your ex back...the odds are in your favor! Now go get him back!
