Undoubtedly, it’s extremely painful to know your ex is now seeing someone else if you still want to win them back. I’m sure people who have been there really can’t forget the sadness and desperation at that moment. But don’t take it too negatively, and that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve lost your beloved forever. If the situation could be handled properly, there are still ways to get your ex back someday, even though they’re seeing someone else now.
1.Control your emotion system and be cool
On hearing or seeing your ex hooking up with others, perhaps you can’t do anything but feel panic,mad or even desperate, and your emotions suddenly get out of control. It’s understandable, but you’ll definitely lose the game if you keep buried in these feelings. The first thing you need to do is to control your emotions and cool down. Panic can’t be any help but get things worse and worse. Just imagine what you can do with your emotion system in disorder?
2.Give your ex some positive response as naturally as you can
Now you’ve persuaded yourself to calm down, and then you are gonna to send some positive response to your ex and show them you’ve accepted the breakup and their new relationship in a healthy way, if there is any chance to meet them in person, and just let them know you’ve handled the whole thing rationally and maturely. That may shock your ex and make them re-know you.
Even if you two have no opportunity to meet, it’s also a good idea to send them a brief text or email, telling them you’re OK with the breakup, respect their decisions, and wish them a happier life. Anyone deserves respect, even if you don’t agree with them, or they did something bad and hurt you before. In addition, your respect should not be pretended, but truly from your deep heart, if you really love them.
3.Check out if your ex is in a serious relationship, or just a rebound one for the next step to get your ex back
We all know what a rebound relationship is, and where this type of love is fatefully going. I suppose it might not be pretty serious, because people who just experienced an breakup trend to hop in a rebound relationship to take a breath and cure their hurts. It’s a common thing, so don’t look down upon your ex if they’re right this kind of person.
If it turns out to be a rebound relationship, then you’ve nothing to worry about. Sooner or later, they’ll break up. What you need to do is just waiting in patience and to see them running the course.
4.What can you do to get your ex back if they are taking their new relationship seriously?
Even if their new lover is not a replacement, they’ve decided to move on and now are quite serious with the new relationship, you still don’t have to be desperate. However, under this circumstance, I’m afraid the process would last longer, and it’ll take you more time and patience. Nevertheless, the good news is , mostly, if your ex made a decision to move on, they won’t avoid you or resist you any more. So it’ll be easier to approach them. They won’t resist you as a friend, and probably will see you as even closer than others. Thus, you’ll have more chances to be with them and be treated more sincerely than the situation they found a rebound relationship to get back at you. You can hang out together sometimes to reestablish trust and “friendship”, but don’t do that too much. Remember, you are now just a friend of theirs.
- Try to get along with your ex in a quite different way
Whether you believe or not, you’ll be completely different in your ex’s eyes, once you’re not lovers but merely friends. It seems weird now you two have less disputes and more agreements than sooner before. Your partner also can’t even believe you two can get along in such a different and peaceful way and turns out so well. You have so many charming characters that didn’t show up before, is it because you’re just a friend now or your ex never noticed them? Perhaps, they are wondering why their new lover is not as considerate as you, and they may unconsciously tell you some issues in their new relationship. It’s surely a good sign for you to get your ex back later.
6.Always be there for your ex, anytime they need you, even just as a friend
If your ex has any problem and they need you, always be there for them, whatever the problem is, just be sure you’re engaging and open. But remember not to bring up any awkward topic referring to their fault before. It’s definitely not the right timing to figure out the responsibility of your breakup. And they’ll feel regretted and guilty for ever letting you go. Maybe the next step isn’t your effort alone to get your ex back, instead, they’re considering how to get back with you as well. Does it sound too good to be true? Be patient and you have great chances to get there.
