Making your boyfriend jealous after a breakup is a common method that girls use to get over the relationship, or to get their man back. However, as a guy and a relationship expert, I have heard some bizarre stories from numerous women. Below we will examine good and bad ways to get your ex jealous, the right way.
Good Ways to Make Your Ex Boyfriend Jealous
Cut Off Communication-Block your boyfriend from Facebook, instant messages and text messages. Don’t answer his phone calls and don’t talk to him in person. He will quickly realize that he misses seeing and talking to you everyday. Having gone through numerous breakups, I have found that cutting off all communication is the most effective way to get a man jealous.
Stay Positive-Start by putting up positive Facebook statuses (even if you blocked him), go out with your friends and start dating casually again right away. If he knows or thinks he had no negative effect on your daily life, he will quickly reevaluate if the breakup was worth it. Show no negative emotions if you see him in public, this will make him feel insecure that the breakup had no effect on you.
Dress in His Favorite Outfit-Nothing makes a guy more jealous than dressing seductively in his favorite outfit, hair style and makeup preference. If he sees you in public, he will instantly know what he is missing and want you back. However, if that is not your goal, it is a great way to make him jealous.
Bad Ways to Make Your Ex Boyfriend Jealous
Dating Someone He Knows Well-Dating his friend to make him jealous is the absolute worst way to instill jealous feelings. This happened to me once, the girl I previously dated “hooked up” with one of my best friends since middle school. The next day she texted me asking why I didn’t want to see her again, and that she only did it to make me jealous. What she didn’t know is that I was still interested in her, but after she started to date my friend, I quickly got over the breakup. Numerous women I know have told me that they dated their ex boyfriend’s friends in order to make him jealous. Not one had any success.
Talking to His New Girlfriend or Ex Girlfriend-Guys will see this as a sign of desperation, rather than an act of jealousy. All this shows is that you care too much about the breakup, which is a complete turnoff if we want a clean split.
Going to Places You Know He Will Be At-Does you ex visit the same bar every Friday, or eats at the same restaurant on a regular basis? This is creepy if you show up at his events, it does not make us jealous or want you back.
