You’ve broken up with your boyfriend. Maybe what happened was his fault and you called things off. But now you’ve had time to reconsider and you’re wondering, how to get back with my ex boyfriend. What you need to remember is that a guys mind works differently than yours, and an understanding of those differences will make a big impact on your chances of getting him back.

First you need to understand that men tend to think in absolutes. They like when things are black and white and don’t really like to operate in the gray areas of life. So it’s possible he doesn’t even know there’s a chance of the two of you getting back together. If you said it was over or that you didn’t want to see him anymore, he probably took it at face value.

Now it’s important that when you’re asking yourself, how to get back with my ex boyfriend, that you remember to be careful that he doesn’t think that the break up was just one big game. From his point of view, when you start acting like you want to get back together he’s going to be asking himself why you went through the trouble of breaking up. Men don’t like games and I’ll be the first to admit how much we like to change the rules. This flies in the face of the way most men think.

Given these facts it’s a good idea to let him know that you think you made a mistake or overreacted by breaking up with him. Remember the direct approach, while it is counter to your sense of subtlety and tact, will be appreciated by him as saying what you mean – something that men desperately what from us sometimes. What you think of as tact, he might think is just another game.

Next, while we’re on the subject of admitting mistakes, it’s a good idea to realize a lot men will never admit when they’re wrong about something. I know this feels like he’s acting superior or doesn’t respect your feelings, but that’s likely not the case. If you’ve ever been in a car lost and he refuses to stop for directions, the same principle is at work. They don’t like admitting they’re wrong. So if he was the one who acted badly and caused the break up, and he has apologized about it, give him some credit for that. Accept his apology and move on.

So when your deciding, how to get back with my ex boyfriend, keep these basic differences in mind, and the process will go a lot more smoothly.

Are you worried there may be no way to put your relationship back together?
