What makes breaking up so difficult? It has to be the pain that lingers inside. And though we know deep down that there’s a way, we just seem to stop wondering how to get the ex back, or even if we’ll be able to at all. Maybe you’ve even taken a few steps to win her back, such as a telephone call or an e-mail, but for whatever reason, it didn’t have the desired results, and now you’re ready to try anything. You asked for it! What follows are four unorthodox ways to get you to make up.
Propose marriage. Huh?! I’ll be the first to admit how crazy it sounds, considering you just went through a breakup, but stick with me. See, the possibility exists that it was your inability to be committed to the relationship that led to the break-up in the first place. By proposing marriage you will be showing you are ready to spend your lives together. It goes without saying that you should only do this if you’re serious about it.
Just listen. Lack of communication is one of the main reasons couples break up. Listening sounds easy enough. However, it’s more than letting your ex talk, it’s about trying to understand what they really mean. You must remain focus on them when they’re talking. You will have a chance to follow-up once they are done, but don’t think about what to say when they’re the one talking. Pay attention and maintain eye contact. The purpose of all of this is to show you care about what they have to say.
Don’t be afraid to see other people. On the surface, this may appear to be manipulative, but that’s not the intention behind it. Yes, seeing dating somebody may make your ex jealous and realize that working things out may be worthwhile after all. Additionally, taking a break from the break-up can help you to clear your thoughts and see things more clearly.
Talk to their friends and family. Doing so will give you more insight into who your ex really is and what they’re going through right now. This next point is super-sneaky and not for everyone: You may endear yourself to the people you’re talking to, and they try to talk your ex into making up with you. There’s nothing wrong with a casual conversation or two that shows you care, but be careful that you don’t go so far that you cross the line into being a stalker.
Being in a break-up can be complicated, but moping around feeling sorry for yourself won’t do you any good. Isn’t easy. Take action! Use any of the tips mentioned above, and continue seeking more advice, and you will get your ex back before you know it.
