The common mistake that guys make after a breakup is that they spend their energy calling and begging and threatening their girlfriends. This is ineffective because the more you try to reach out to her, the more she will push you away until she gets fed up and goes away for good. Don’t go around calling her and asking for another chance. Just play it cool, and you will be surprised at how well it would pan out if you keep your distance for a few weeks.
For the most part, this includes mind games. Women are notorious for playing mind games. Don’t text her, don’t leave Facebook messages, and don’t call her at home and at work. By staying away for a few weeks after the breakup, she will begin to wonder if you still think of her. This will arouse her curiosity until she can’t hold it anymore. Soon, she will start dropping by and asking questions about you. You see, doing nothing is more effective than spending a great deal of time badgering her.
During the time that you are away, find other things to do. This is a great opportunity for you to become a better person. If there is a hobby that you wanted to take on but haven’t been able to do, now is the perfect time to do it. There are tons of things for you to do. You can enroll in a gym or spend your time writing songs or go to Vegas with your friends. Whatever it is, make sure it is something positive and enriching.
Avoid overanalyzing. In mind games, the less you think about the problem, the greater the chance of winning them. Let your ex dwell on it, not you. Enjoy your time alone while it lasts. Overanalyzing will get you nowhere.
When your ex finally calls you, be nonchalant about it. Treat her like an old friend, like nothing bad has ever happened between the two of you. This shows maturity, and girls like guys who are emotionally mature. If you can stick to these rules, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t get her back.
