You thought your relationship was perfect and then the love of your life walked in and said he needed some space. Most women would be stunned and confused at this moment, but if you can summon the strength to do the unexpected your ex boyfriend will be the one that will be stunned. It might be the hardest thing that you have been called upon to do in your life , but if it will get your ex back quickly, you can find that courage to do it.
He is expecting you to fall apart and start crying, begging and pleading with him to change his mind. After he leaves he expects you to chase him and tell him you cannot live without him. He has readied himself to be bombarded with phone calls. emails, and text messages. Although he still loves you, he wants you to lose your pride and dignity. This will feed his ego and make him feel macho to have a lovely woman like you throwing herself at his feet. But you cannot do any of this. If you do, even if you get him back, he will always be the one in control and you will live in fear of upsetting him again and losing him for good.
Instead of doing what he expects, use some male psychology. Men cannot stand to be ignored and rejected. So, if you do not have any contact with him at all he will wonder why you are not trying to get him back. Just act as if he does not exist and you never met him. Ignore him and appear to be accepting the breakup just fine. Reconnect with your family and do things you have been putting off. Take up a hobby or enroll in some night classes.
When you have settled down and have yourself back under control, start thinking of the woman you were then and what attracted your ex boyfriend to you in the first place. To get him back you need to become that woman again. If you think you need to lose a little weight, do it. Get a new hair style and a tan. When you see him again you want to stun your ex boyfriend. By using male psychology to make him feel ignored and as if you do not want him anymore, you have him wondering if the breakup was a bad idea. Now you can put the finishing touches on driving him wild.
Get your girlfriends together and go out hunting your ex boyfriend. You know where he hangs out so he should not be hard to find. Pop in and let him see how great you look and what a good time you are having without him. Then leave him standing there and his mouth wide open with amazement. Your ex boyfriend will start calling you immediately, but be unavailable for a while and let him feel the rejection you felt. You are now in control and if you always keep him guessing and remember that male psychology tells you that men always want what they cannot have, you will keep him forever.
