What Not To Do When Getting Your Ex Boyfriend Back

By Guest

Many things have been said about getting an ex boyfriend back. But just as important is knowing what not to do when getting your ex boyfriend back. In short, besides knowing what you should do, you should also know what not to do. Although this should be rather elementary-because obviously you should not do the opposite of whatever it is that you should be doing-many women still commit these mistakes. Getting your ex boyfriend back may seem like a task that requires emotion and sincere intentions and feelings-but it is also about proper timing and being able to control your feelings. It’s not always about being sincere. Getting your ex boyfriend back is being sincere at all the right moments.

This makes sense when you consider that the most common advice people give to someone who wants to get their ex back is space and time. Therefore, when you want to get your ex boyfriend back, the worst thing you can do is rush to him a few days after the break up. This negates the reason why you broke up in the first place, and not allowing you to assess whatever it is that caused the break up. You two broke up for a reason; the least you can do is understand this reason and try to assess how you can remedy this on a personal level.

But the real reason why you don’t want to kiss and make up immediately is this: you don’t want to drive him away. As you should know and may already know, your clinginess and neediness can drive him away. You want to give him the space and time to reassess your relationship. This can be for the good and the bad, yet it is necessary nonetheless. It will either make your ex realize that he wants to give your relationship another try or it will make him really assert the fact why he broke with you in the first place. Therefore, if it is the former, you wouldn’t want to appear needy since this might only hinder him from realizing how important you are to him.

Do not place him in the center of your world, because everything does not have to be about him. It is important for you to go out and have fun. This is also a chance for you to have time as well as space to think about the relationship the two of you shared. You need to see a clear picture in order to assess the relationship and issues surrounding your break up, but by being constantly focused on your ex boyfriend you will not be able to think objectively. In fact, you will have difficulty coming up with logical ways to fix the issues you had in your relationship that caused the break up.

If you want your ex boyfriend to come knocking at your door, then you have to give him the space he needs to think about the relationship the two of you shared. In fact, it would not hurt for you to take this opportunity to spend some time on you and do things for yourself. This is the best way to build a healthy relationship.
