Is making your ex boyfriend jealous the best way to get him back? If you’ve been searching for an answer to this question, you must be a woman still very much in love with her ex. When we’re faced with an emotional situation we tend to let our better sense take a back seat to our emotions. Although taking up with a new guy and flaunting him in your ex’s face may feel like a great way to win back his love, it’s not. The only thing you’re going to accomplish if you try this tactic is you’ll be securing your future without your ex boyfriend. Jealousy is a very powerful emotion and in the middle of a break up, it’s like playing with fire. You need to know exactly how to use it to ensure you don’t burn yourself and end up alone.
Typically jealousy is something we turn to when we want to validate what we believe our guy feels about us. There’s a little thrill that rushes through a woman when she’s out with her man and he gets a little cranky because another man looked her way. If he feels that some guy is interested in you, his feelings of jealousy are bound to kick in and it will be impossible for him to hide it. That’s going to happen from time-to-time in a relationship. However, once a relationship ends a man can have a much different reaction if he knows his ex is dating or interested in someone new. It can completely turn him off and he can instantly lose all interest in her. The problem with trying to get your ex jealous is he’ll forever envision you with the other man in his mind. He’ll have trouble erasing that mental image and that will impact how he feels about you. It’s not easy to get past something like that so it’s best not to date anyone new if you still want to be with your ex.
Jealousy can still be used though but in a much different way. Instead of focusing all your attention on a new guy in an effort to get a strong reaction out of your ex, just go out with groups of friends. Never come out and tell your ex boyfriend whether or not you’re dating someone new, just skirt around the question. If you keep yourself busy and if you regularly go out and have fun with friends, he’ll start to feel as though he’s missing out. That’s the only way you want to use jealousy when you’re trying to get your ex boyfriend back.
