Making Your Ex Boyfriend Jealous To Get Him Back
When it comes to fast ways to get your boyfriend back, nothing works quicker than making him jealous. Without outright deceiving your ex, using jealousy as a tool to win his immediate interest can actually work in your favor. But should you use this trick to win him back? And how much jealousy is a good amount?
People have mixed feelings when it comes to making someone else jealous. Some think of it as a dishonest shortcut. But for others, using jealousy to regain attention has worked wonders... especially in the cases where an ex boyfriend has already moved on or seems to want little to do with you.
Jealousy can be both a burden and a curse. Used correctly, it can actually help you regain the emotional attachment that your ex boyfriend may be trying so hard to bury. But employed too much, or applied too quickly, and jealous tactics can actually backfire in your direction. If you make your ex think that you've totally moved on, he might just turn around and decide to move on himself... but in the opposite direction.
Creating a situation in which your ex is envious of your position definitely has it's advantages. Below you'll learn some of the finer tactics to using jealousy to win back your boyfriend.
Attracting Your Ex's Attention Through Jealousy
Making an exboyfriend jealous isn't only about walking up and flirting with other guys... it's also about subtle changes to your attitude and behavior. While you never want to change the person you are, there are actions you can take that will make you more attractive to your ex boyfriend - both physically and socially.
The way you look is one change, but the way you feel and present yourself is another. By polishing up those behaviors that attracted your ex to you in the first place, you can suddenly make your exboyfriend very interested in you again. When your own situation looks more attractive than his, your ex will begin feeling envious of your position. These are all goals you should have in mind before doing anything at all.
Making Your Boyfriend Jealous Without Him Knowing It
When it comes to instilling jealousy in an ex, the ideal method involves never letting him know you're intentionally doing such a thing. The best jealousy should feel natural to him, and should make him wonder why he dumped you in the first place. If your ex suspects, even for a minute, that you're doing something for the sole purpose of making him jealous? He's going to disregard whatever it is you're trying to accomplish, and you'll be worse off than if you did nothing. You'll could even look sad and pathetic, if the circumstances involve him catching you in the act.
Get Over The Break Up As Quickly As Possible
One thing that will always make an ex boyfriend jealous: moving on with life after the break up. When you can show that the break up hasn't affected you a single bit, and that you're continuing on with life as normal, your ex will be jealous and even a bit worried by your apparent lack of feeling. And if you're moving forward more quickly than he is? He'll be even more upset, because it will make him feel as if he's the one still trying to hang on. Needless to say, this is exactly what you want.
To get on with things, you need to throw away any emotions of hopelessness, doubt, or self-pity. Keep the end goal in mind: getting back with your ex boyfriend. Understand that by moving away from the break up as fast and seamlessly as possible, you're also taking steps toward acheiving a new relationship with him. You can't start a future with your ex until you've left the past behind.
These opening moves are extremely useful in determining what to do immediately after the break up.
Looking Great Always Makes An Ex Boyfriend Jealous
Guys are very visual. When your ex first met you, chances are he was initially attracted to your physical attributes. Even before you spoke a word to each other, he was drawn in by what you looked like.
Keeping this in mind, the better you look and feel... the more attractive you'll become to your ex boyfriend. If he dumps you and finds out weeks later that you've been hitting the gym, running, and getting toned and fit? Not only is he going to be interested in how you look now, but also why you've taken a sudden interest in your appearance. He'll be worried that you'll look and feel good enough to begin dating other guys, which is the last thing he wants. No guy wants to see his ex girlfriend moving on before he does, even if he's the one who ended things.
So hit the gym. Go jogging - outside too, so you can simultaneously get a nice runner's tan. Get fit, feel good, and enjoy the fact that you'll have more energy. As your confidence lifts, so will your spirit. You'll begin giving off positive energy in everything you do, and this is perhaps more attractive than anything else. Exercise is theraputic, it's healthy, and it gives you something to take your mind off of your ex boyfriend and the break up.
Get Out And Do New Things
Another huge way to make your ex jealous is to have a whole new life you never had while you were dating him. Getting out and trying new things will give him the impression that he was stifling you, which will make him feel less and less like you need him at all. This is one of the best types of jealousy: it allows your ex to realize that he might be letting go of someone really special.
It doesn't matter if you're male or female... as human beings we're most attracted to people who are driven and active. As you're out there starting new hobbies, improving your social life, and meeting new people, your ex boyfriend will certainly know about it. His vision of you sitting home alone feeling sorry for yourself will be shattered, replaced by the image of you laughing, having fun, and even flirting with other guys (or them flirting with you).
Also consider this: when you and your boyfriend were dating, he loved making you happy. Guys like to feel protective of their girlfriends, but they also love to feel as if they're responsible for a girl's general happiness. By seeing you happy without him, it will throw doubt into your exboyfriend's mind. Doubts about the decision to break up... doubts that may even cause him to want to reverse the process and see if he can get you back.
While you're out doing new things, try to stay optimistic about everything - not just about getting him back. Positivity is contageous, and if you're always seeing the glass as half-full, things will generally fall that way. If you can envision getting back together with your ex, it will certainly happen. All you need to do is keep thinking positive, concentrating inwardly on your own life, and wait for your ex to call you.
Dating Other Guys To Make Your Exboyfriend Jealous
There's a pretty fierce debate as to whether or not you should date other guys while waiting to get back with an ex boyfriend. There are those who say it's a good thing, because it will make him jealous enough to take immediate action toward getting you back. But there are others who think it's detrimental to any future relationship you might have with him, especially if you sleep with any of the new guys you date while "on a break".
The truth of the matter is this: dating other people is always okay, so long as you're not doing it for the sole purpose of making your ex boyfriend jealous. In short, don't intentionally pick the hottest guy around and start hanging all over him whenever your boyfriend or his friends can see you... it's lame, desperate, and a little bit trampy. That being said, going out with other guys because you want to meet new people and experience dating life again is totally cool. Not only are you getting back on the horse, but you're also enjoying yourself in a social environment rather that sitting around hoping that your old relationship can be fixed.
Nothing will make an ex boyfriend more jealous than seeing you with another man. If this happens, it should be a fortunate byproduct of you getting back out and having a new life without your ex. In many cases, the shock of seeing you kissing someone else will drive your ex right back into your arms again. This is fine, especially if you've been trying to win back your exboyfriend. But it's not something you should strive for, meaning you shouldn't rely on it happening.
You also don't want to hurt the new guy you might be seeing. If he's getting very interested in you and suddenly you get yanked back into a previous relationship, that pretty much sucks for him. But as long as you're not intentionally deceiving him, or using him to make your ex jealous? Then he's going to have to take his lumps just like everyone else.
So in short, don't date just to instill jealousy in your ex boyfriend. Date for you. Date because you're ready to start dating again, and because you like the guy you're going out with. But if you're hanging all over someone just for the sake of creating jealousy? You might find that approach will backfire on you pretty quickly.
