Just remember that it won’t be forever, and when you do get back in touch; those fireworks will have been given a chance to spark again. While the urge may be to hole up at home and avoid the world scheming about ways to get him back, that is the last thing you should be doing.
I once went to the same bar for happy hour 5 nights in a row, knowing it was a favorite spot of my ex’s and that he would eventually show up.
The bonus was that I got some quality time with friends while we waited for his appearance.
They dream about that first run-in – the moment when someone either wins or loses. Look, you were fantastic while the two of you were together. Take care of you and focus on becoming the best version of yourself.
Because yes, there are always winners and losers in a breakup. The girl who will undoubtedly win the next time she sees her ex.
In a perfect world, you would be able to show up at a party thrown by mutual friends and catch your ex’s eye from across the room.
Those occasions don’t always present themselves though, so you may need to get a bit more creative.
I see you with your pint of ice cream, your box of Kleenex and your sappy music playing in the background.
I see you watching The Notebook over and over again, reminding yourself that real love never dies.
When he finally did show, I looked incredible and had my head held high.
Because I had been waiting for him, I was able to remain confident and interact with him with ease.
You want him to believe that getting over what you two had has really been no big deal at all. The best way to get your ex boyfriend back is to make him think getting back together is the last thing on your mind. Believe it or not, that is also how you begin to heal.
