I miss my ex so much that I wish we’re getting back together!

-Gideon

There are two possible ways you can use to stop missing your ex and avoid feeling lonely and heartbroken all the time. Either you get over them and move on or get them back in your life again. So which one do you want? Whatever your answer is, I got you covered in today’s post, so make sure you stick to the end. I will be revealing some mind-blowing tactics to use to get over your ex after breakups and some sneaky psychological techniques to apply if you want your ex back in your life for good.
You don’t want to miss this, do you? Now, let’s dive right into our topic for today.

Is it normal If I miss my ex?

Breakups are some of the most challenging things you’ll go through in life. It is entirely normal to feel heartbroken when you’ve just been dumped, mostly if it was a serious relationship and you’re still in love with your ex. You might feel like your life is over like you will never be able to love again – it’s a whole lot of heartache, and I sympathize.


The very first question that comes to mind is, “why do i miss my ex boyfriend or girlfriend so much?” To be sincere with you, your partner was your confidant; the person you share everything. I mean, your love, attention, friendship, and living together for a very long time would make you miss their absence. Therefore, it’s normal to miss your ex-partner.

How long should I miss my ex?

Ideally, it depends on the situation of the breakups. For some, it takes about a week or months and even years before they can successfully get over their ex.

Whether you were the one who was broken up with or you ended things yourself, no matter the cause of the breakups, there would be some instances you will undoubtedly be reminiscing some of the good times you had together. It could be the friendship, frequent contacting, their family and friends, and all the romantic moments including consistent sex.

I miss my ex: Should I call or text?

Lets’s face it; calling or texting your ex, especially right after a breakup, is not the best thing to do. You have to go ‘no contact’ period for about a month or two to get over them.

The best thing to do right after a breakup is by using the ‘no contact method’. The ‘No Contact Rule’ is when you put yourself in probation; you don’t call or text your ex in any way after the breakup for at least 30 days. With this, you will be wiping away any forms of negative feelings about yourself.

Why should you call your ex in the first place? The person who dumped you, cheated on you, ignored you and treated you as a doormat. Calling or texting your ex will surely open the door for another drama.

Before reaching out to your ex after breakup, consider the foundation of the breakup. What causes all the drama? If it is something forgivable and reaching out will ignite the love again, then proceed with caution.

When you should never text or call your ex

1. First thing in the morning and right before bed time.

If you’re texting your ex during either these two times, you might be coming across as a little needy. Texting first thing in the morning will let them assume you’re thinking about them as soon as you wake up.


And if you’re texting at night too, he or she is going to assume that you might be lonely and in need of someone to talk to. So, these are the two times you shouldn’t be texting your ex at all.

2. During special occasions

Now, the question is, should you wish your ex on occasions like Christmas, New Year, etc. The answer is a big NO!


Whenever you text or call your ex, you need to have a concrete reason before reaching out. And wishing your ex a ‘Happy New Year’ will not trigger affection he or she has for you, so don’t even think about it!


Therefore, there is no discretion in wishing your ex-partner on their birthdays. The reason being is, birthdays are personal – and your ex might take it as an insult if you forget to wish him or her happy birthday.


Remember not to use that as a conversation starter. Go straight to the point by saying something like, “Happy Birthday, hope you’re doing well?” You are not in a relationship with your ex, so don’t treat your relationship with your ex as if you’re in one.

3. When you are drunk or feeling lonely

I miss my ex

Actually, this has happened to me before. I remembered when I broke up with my chop-box love; my first girlfriend at college.

Within a few months of breakup, I woke up in the middle of the night one day daydreaming and reminiscing on the romantic feelings I had at school with her. Oh boy, I couldn’t control my emotions but took my phone right away and texted a very long apology message; to get her back in the relationship again.

Not knowing she has survived the heartbreak and moved on with another guy. I regretted what she told me that night. Anyway, that was my bad.

4. When your ex is already in another relationship

If your ex is already in a relationship, they’re probably in what is known as a “Rebound Relationship“. These relationships typically don’t last long anyway, but your ex will not be happy if you keep texting or calling them when they’re with another person.

If your ex feels like you’re purposefully trying to sabotage their relationship, or that you’re actively trying to convince him or her that their new relationship is not perfect for them, will even make matter worst.

I miss my ex: 3 ways to stop missing your ex for good.

Having a broken heart and missing someone doesn’t just hurt; it can feel overwhelming. It is the greatest of emotional pains, leaving you helpless. Along with the pain, you’ll have so many questions like, “how can I move on? how can I get through this? will it ever get better?”

Having a broken heart sucks! And it can suck for a long time, but there is a piece of good news. And the good news is that there are things you can do to speed the mending of your broken heart and make it less painful in the meantime.

1. Accept that the relationship is over.

Accepting that the relationship is over can help you focus on healing fast. Much like other grieving forms, many people struggle with denial and cannot accept the reality that the relationship is over, and this is what we called the protest phase.

When the heartbroken person tries anything and everything to win back the affection of their beloved. But to get the perfect healing and moving forward, we’ve got to accept what we’ve been told; that the relationship is over.
It’s also vital to understand why things ended.

Because this is one of the main factors that helps us accept, let go, and move on. Having a clear understanding helps us reach closer sooner, and it helps us let go of reconciliation.
I know it’s challenging to let go and accepting that it’s over. But this is the most crucial step you must take to get over your ex.

2. Going cold turkey

Going cold turkey is often the best way to stop an addictive habit, such as drugs or alcohol. It means that you just totally, completely stop, never do it again. Cold turkey also implies that you have to bear the cravings and pains associated with withdrawal.

And when it comes to healing a broken heart, going cold turkey means you stop communicating, negotiating or scheming to get your ex back.
Cold turkey means that you do not negotiate communication with your ex; stop following them on social media.

After all, you don’t want reminders of your ex popping up on your news feed, and Instagram feeds every day. Remember, you’re trying to get over them, and you absolutely must not monitor their social media sites hoping to see that nothing in their life has changed. Doing it is detrimental to your recovery.

The goal is to spend less and less time thinking about the person who is no longer in your life and focus on you. One other important thing to do in your cold turkey is to remove any visible reminders around your house. Remove any photos, love notes, gifts from your ex, and any other items that might remind you of your past relationship.

3. Keep yourself occupied at all times

If you sit around the house doing nothing, you’re giving yourself a chance to think things over and bring undue heartache upon yourself. It’s best to keep busy with work, school, hobbies, or any other activities that keep your attention focused on something other than your ex. Even watching a favourite Tv show or playing video games will take your mind off the breakup for a while.

I miss my ex so much: 5 things to do to get your ex back

Yeah, the feeling of getting dumped sucks. There’s no question about that. Sometimes, you can go crazy thinking about all the things that went wrong in your relationship. No matter how dire your situation is with your ex, there is a way to get back together if you still want your ex back!

1. Don’t get jealous

Jealousy reeks of insecurity, and this is just the number one killer of attraction. If you are the jealous kind of person, then fight the urge to show this emotion around your ex.

2. Give him or her space.

Yes, this seems a little stiff and counter-intuitive, but leaving your ex alone is one of the best ways of actually getting them back into your life. However, you have to do it in a precise way. Only not talking to them won’t do it. You have to talk to him or her subconscious and make it seem like you really and genuinely don’t want to talk right now.

3. Become the most attractive version of yourself

To get that spark back with your ex, you’re going to have to become a much more attractive version of yourself. I’m not saying you should focus on becoming physically attractive, although it helps also.

What I mean is that you need to become a more confident, vibrant, happy, and powerful version of yourself. Human beings are attracted to people with equal or higher social status than themselves; this is true for both sexes but especially women.

So to regain that “feeling” and attraction back, you have to focus positively on yourself. You ultimately want to make your ex look at you and say, “why the hell I ever let that go?”! Explore some best ways to live your best life ever and get your ex to crave over you.

4. Contact your ex in a non-intrusive manner

The next thing you have to do to get your ex back is contacting them in a non-intrusive manner in a reasonable way.
So once you finally do reach out to your ex, you need to craft the perfect message to hook them more appropriately. If you’re too forward, you’ll come across as needy and desperate. However, if the message isn’t powerful enough, your ex will not bother texting you back.


Here is an example of a right message you can send your ex after the “No Contact Period” has ended. You could send something like, “Hey! Do you remember that incredible band we listened to at Cactus Creek last year? What was the name of the band again? I’m trying to make a new playlist. Hope everything is going on well with you.”


So you see, this is an excellent message for some reasons, but first and foremost, it forces your ex to reminisce about a happy time you had together. It will start to trigger some of their emotional feelings you guys first started dating. And if you do this at the right time, it can be a powerful thing, and will only be a matter of days before he or she misses you again.
