When your ex boyfriend told you he needed some space it almost sent your emotions out of control. Now you find out that he has a new girlfriend and you still love him. What are you to do and how to get him back? Your first thought might be to let her have him and find someone else. But that can be hard to do if you are still in love with him. Then you go from jealousy to rage and you want to go tear into both of them. After a while you settle down a little and realize that if you want your ex back, you have to play it smart.
When your ex boyfriend has a new girlfriend and you still love him, it will take all of the strength and discipline you can muster. You will also have to be a good actress. You might run into them from time to time and you want to rip into her. Instead you have to be nice to her and act as if you are glad that your ex boyfriend found someone so nice. Treat him like you would and old friend. If he calls and asks you what you think of her you have to keep control. Do not say anything rude or derogatory about her. Just say that you are glad they are happy together.
By doing this he will keep in touch with you. If you act jealous or try to put his new girlfriend down he will avoid you. In order to have any chance to get your ex back, you need to maintain communication. Also he might have intentionally run into you with his new girlfriend to make you jealous. He might just be using her to get you back. If you had been cold to her when you met them and criticized her when he called he would know that you still loved him. By knowing this, he is in a good position. If things do not work out with his new girlfriend, he will have you to fall back on.
You might be tempted to play his game too and date some good looking guy. This could backfire for two reasons. Your ex boyfriend that you are still in love with might get the wrong idea. Instead of making him jealous, it might make him feel that you are over him and he will commit to his new girlfriend. The second reason is that the new guy might fall madly in love with you and be very hurt when he finds out you are only using him to try to get your ex back. It will also make you feel rotten to have hurt an innocent person to further your own ends.
When you find yourself in this kind of situation, you have to play it real cool and watch every word and action. Depending on what you do will make the difference in getting back the man you love or losing him to his new girlfriend.
