All relationships run into problems at some stage even when both people involved love each other deeply, so unfortunately the path to true love is rarely smooth. You see just because you love somebody doesn’t change either of your personalities and you both have the same quirks and differences that you had before you fell in love. Sometimes though those little bumps in a relationship turn into a mountain and can force the hand of one half of any relationship to just walk away.
So now that you’re reading this page I know that you’ve realized that you want your ex to be part of your life again but you’ve heard that he’s with somebody else now and you’re not quite sure what to do about that – after all you don’t want to be known as some kind of “home wrecker” do you?
Can you do anything if your ex boyfriend has a new girlfriend and seems to be moving on with his life? There are several steps you’ll need to follow here to figure things out a little bit more.
1. How Long Were You Together?
If your relationship only lasted a few weeks and your boyfriend has already moved on to somebody new there’s a very strong chance he’s a serial dater and you’d probably be better off avoiding him. But if you had a relationship that lasted several months or years then you have good reason to want to save this relationship based on the time you’ve both invested into it.
2. How Long Was He Single?
If your ex boyfriend was single for several months and now he’s finally dating somebody else then there’s a very good chance that he has moved on both emotionally and in every other way too. But if your ex started dating this new girl a few days or weeks after you broke up then there’s a very strong chance this is just a rebound relationship and nothing more. Some guys simply can’t hack being on their own and are willing to date any woman rather than be single. If he’s in a rebound then it’s open season on getting him back.
3. Become His Friend
This is going to suck when you start out but it’s the very best way to get some insight into how your ex boyfriend is currently thinking. You also need to accept that his current girlfriend isn’t going to be happy about him meeting you or talking with you, so be prepared for some arguments based on that. Being friends with an ex is rarely an easy thing to do but it does give you the immediate opportunity to spend time with him and figure out if he really has moved on or if he misses you still.
4. Don’t Do Needy
Begging, pleading, threatening and throwing tantrums are never, ever an attractive trait in a woman so please avoid doing any and all of these. Plus if your ex boyfriend thinks you can’t live without him this can tempt some guys into manipulating you for sexual favors, money or worse.
5. Use Technology
If there’s been some distance between you for some time now then one of the best ways to get in touch with your ex is via text messages and “Text Your Ex Back” by Michael Fiore is one of the neatest ways for you to establish contact with your ex and get them talking to you again. Once you have a conversation going it’s only a matter of time before you’ll meet up with him and take it to the next level from there.
