It isn’t easy to gauge if your ex is thinking about you after the breakup. You want to believe they are missing you but there is always that fear they have left you behind for good. The mistake many folks make is to just sit around and wait for their ex to come back, when really they should be out there trying to make their ex miss the companionship they once had.
Here are some tips for making your ex miss you enough to come crawling back…
The key to attracting the right kind of attention is to make yourself marketable. No one wants to be with the lonely depressed guy who can’t have fun without his ex girlfriend around. Start by contacting old friends and make yourself attend those social events you normally shy away from. Most importantly…have fun!
Be Cordial, Not Bitter
While it can be difficult to harbor those feelings of regret and resentment for being dumped, you need to play nice with your ex and their friends while you wait for your chance to get back together. Don’t be afraid to say hi when you see them and be sure to ask how things are going. Keep things positive with every encounter. The best way to make them miss you is by being the person they fell in love with…not the grumpy troll who can’t accept rejection.
Grab the Spotlight
The fact is you got dumped because your ex didn’t see a bright future together. There is no better way to make them miss you than to prove you are a shining star. Now is the time to tackle those life goals you have been putting off. Getting in shape, going back to school, or securing a better job are all things that can grab the attention of everyone around you.
Wait for the Fall
Sometimes when a partner moves on they become so enthralled with “freedom” that they bite off more than they can chew. This can include partying too much, hanging out with the wrong people, or blowing through all their money. If this happens and you’ve maintained a good relationship with them, there will be a time they come to you for support. Make sure you are there for them by being the one person they can trust. Everything will fall into place from there.
You can’t always tell from the outside if your ex misses you but there are plenty of things you can do to stay near the front of their thoughts. It starts by being the best person you can be. Don’t be afraid to grab the spotlight so everyone can see just how good a catch you really are.
