You always felt sorry for your girlfriends when their boyfriend broke up with them, but confident that it would never happen to you. Now it has happened to you - the unthinkable. Your boyfriend has just told you he needs a break. Although you gave your girlfriends advice, now that it has happened to you, it seems so different. It was easy to tell them to forget him and find someone else, but now the shoe is on the other foot. You do not want to forget the man you love and let him go. However the truth is, that in order to get your ex back, you will have to let him go, at least for a while. This might be hard for you, but keep in mind that it is the best way of getting him back.
If you are wondering how you can face your friends and family after always being so sure of your guy, don't worry about it. This is no time to let your pride and ego get in the way. You will need all of the help and support you can get and they will be on your side. But, you will have to be careful because their love and support could be a problem too. By telling each of them what happened, you will be reliving the breakup over and over again. This can keep you from accepting the breakup and moving on. You should also be aware that you will be on the receiving end of all of their advice and this could further confuse you.
Getting your ex boyfriend back will depend on what you do and say. If you chase him and tell him you cannot live without him, you could lose him for good. No man wants a woman that is needy and desperate and that is the way you will appear to him. Your best choice is to give him the break he wanted and occupy yourself with other things. Do things you always wanted to do but never got around to doing. Go out with your friends and have fun. Your ex will hear about your activities and will have more respect for you than he would if you were acting weak and needy.
When a few weeks have gone by without any contact with your ex boyfriend, you should have your emotions under control. This will be the time to use the tactic that never fails to make your ex boyfriend love you again. All you have to do is keep it simple and make sure you do not start crying at the sound of his voice. You are going to do is say words that always get a positive response. Just tell your guy that you are sorry if you did anything to hurt him and end the conversation. Do not tell him you love him or try to make any explanations. Showing you have the strength and maturity to apologize will make a big impression on your ex and he will be in contact with you.
