Most relationship guides will tell you that you should try and guilt him in to getting back with you or date other people to make him jealous enough to admit his feelings toward you. Whilst these might work to get him back for a few weeks, this is really manipulative behavior and will make him feel used. You don’t do these things to people you care about, so why would you do it to the guy that you want to marry?
Before you start trying to get him back, you need to have a serious think about the rest of your life and whether or not you really want this guy back in your life. If you broke up with him, why did you break up with him in the first place? If he cheated on you or if you cheated on him, you are probably not the ideal couple to get married. Whilst a lot of people get divorced nowadays, it shouldn’t be like this and people should only get married if they are 100% certain that marriage and eternal matrimony is what they are looking for. If you both cheated on each other, its pretty obvious you are not ready to marry each other.
If it was a smaller relationship transgression, do you know how you would fix it? Could you fix it with him and get him back too? Thinking about these kind of things is difficult and can hurt your ego, especially if the relationship breakup was particularly bad. The most difficult thing to do is when he breaks up with you and you want him back, you need to be thinking about all the things that he might have disliked about you. This is a pretty difficult thing to do, which can really ruin your self confidence and make you sad and depressed over your ‘failures’.
Once you have found out some of the relationship problems, what are you going to do about them?
Make a plan to fix these problems, taking lots of third party advice if you need it. You probably know someone who has had the same problems as you before in a relationship so asking for their advice can be a useful thing to do. Ask your friends and family and also ask your ex-partner’s friends if he has mentioned anything to them that you think you could do to get him back.
Knowledge is power, especially when you are trying to get someone back for good. Rather than manipulating him and making him feel bad, you need to stir the passion in his heart for you. Whilst he might not show it, he probably still cares for you a lot and wants to be with you. You just have to show him that the right decision is to get back with you rather than get over you and back on track with his life.
You do this by capitalizing on your knowledge of what he likes and finds attractive so that you can allure him again. Once he’s interested once more, show him how much work you have done in trying to figure out how exactly you are going to fix the problems in the relationship and ask for his perception of things. Whilst you might think you know all the answers, there are often angles that you might have missed on the road to getting your ex back that a different perspective might have been able to see.If your ex broke up because he needed to move for work or something else of this fashion, is it really worth uprooting your entire life where you live to go with him? I bet that if you did want to go with him and live somewhere else, he wouldn’t mind he just doesn’t want you to choose between him and everything else in your life without it being your decision. Whilst you might stumble upon the root of discontent in the relationship, you’ll never really know until you communicate and talk with him about everything. Find a way to communicate directly and truthfully with him and you’ll be well on your way to the wedding chapel with him, your family and a lovely honeymoon!
Getting married is a serious commitment, so please make sure you know that this is what you want.
Everyone knows how a bad date can chip at your confidence. You spent ages getting ready, thinking of witty things to say and was even pretty excited for your date. This date might have been the last first date for a while… But alas, it turns out to be another bad date and another bad experience. Whilst you might have had fun and enjoyed the evening, maybe your date didn’t and isn’t returning your calls. Whatever the reason, sometimes it’s difficult to get back on your feet and give dating another go.
The problem is when you let bad dates get to you. Sometimes you just think that there’s no point, nobody for you out there. Out of all of those seven billion people, you just can’t seem to find the right one. Eventually, you get tired of the bad dates and you forget the good ones. Humans are reprogrammed to remember loss as more painful than it is and forget the good times that have happened. If your experiences lately have all been rubbish, it tends to make you think that all dates forever more will be like the string of bad ones you have been having lately. “There is no good man/woman out there”, I hear you scream!
We have heard all of those types of things and are here to say that, no, there are good people to date out there, there is plenty of time to settle down and dating really doesn’t have to be an ordeal. We are going to divulge some of the secrets to having great dates in this little guide for you.
There are moments in each and every one of our lives where things seem really difficult. After a few nightmare dates where you just want to run away, dates seem to lose their luster. This is bad for your future dates as you are expecting to fail. When you are expecting to fail, you tend to fail more often and more readily, which primes you for more failure. When you have a few nightmare dates, you start to find reasons to make it fail, sabotaging yourself and shooting yourself n the foot. To remedy this, just try to go on a few dates for fun. Purely for fun and something to do of an eve and don’t expect anything to come of it. You are simply going out and going to enjoy yourself and if anything good does come of it, it’s an extra bonus! Getting past those negative feelings is the main aim for these dates and as soon as you see how fun meeting new people and dating can be, you’ll be happier and more emotionally fulfilled person.
If you try to make your dating life easier, it will probably become easier over time. Dating doesn’t have to be difficult or even time sapping. Go to a speed dating night and try your luck there.
If you feel like the people you meet simply don’t meet your standards, then that is okay. Finding the perfect person to fall in love with isn’t an easy task and very rarely is it a quick one. The only problem with not settling for people is that your standards may be way too high. If you are a highly attractive and humorous person, then it’s alright to expect that in a date. However, many people are completely unrealistic about themselves and hope to net the “dream” partner. If you expect to date someone physically fit and smart, you had better be those things too. Dating people who seem “Good Enough” just because you haven’t met the perfect person isn’t a terrible idea. You might really grow to like the person or your tastes may change to want exactly what you have already.
Whilst it seems like an odd suggestion, it could just be that you yourself are not ready for the relationship that you think you want. Working on yourself for a few weeks without giving thought to the relationships you are looking for may alter your perception and outlook on dating in a more positive manner. A few weeks of attention to your own flaws and merits may well show you what you need to change about yourself. You have the power to change yourself, not others. If you can’t seem to find the right person to date, it could be your problem due to holding negative emotions about dates or your self-image. By really taking a step back and analyzing exactly what you are looking for may give you another route to happiness. Taking responsibility for your own happiness is something that people seem to find alien, yet very fulfilling. By taking your own life back in your control you can shape your path so much better. Everything happening to you is at least somewhat your responsibility. Coming up against a wall is an opportunity for personal growth. The metaphorical barrier life is throwing at you is a great way to rise to the challenge and become someone truly attractive and interesting.
The great scientists of humanity were constantly challenging their beliefs about what was already “obviously” known. For many years, the earth was flat and this was common knowledge. Perhaps how you think about your reality in dating isn’t actually how everyone else sees it or how it actually is. Being resigned to bad dating forever isn’t a healthy or helpful way of looking at your situation. Nobody will come and fix your problems without a little work from yours truly.
Try to ask advice from your friends and family. If you ask them honestly what thy think you should do, they may open up your mind to a whole series of ideas you hadn’t thought of. Perhaps they will suggest Online Dating, which has worked for other people they know. Whilst they are somewhat biased in the information they will give you, if you can trust their opinions they may help you change your views on your string of bad dates. Sometimes what you think you are looking for in a relationship isn’t at all what you really want. Looking at dates specifically as what you don’t want may challenge your beliefs in who you wish to be with. If they change your beliefs, fantastic. If not, you haven’t lost anything bar a little time and have proven that your viewpoint is valid. It’s a win-win!
Whilst you might disagree with some of the advice in this post, we have all been through periods of dating hell. We have personally tried some of them and can testify that they worked for us when we felt like we were at our worst periods in dating. The insight gained from challenging your own beliefs is immense and will help you in all of the areas of your life, not just dating. If nothing is getting you out of that dating rut, you have nothing to lose by trying some of these techniques. Let us know how you get on, we would love to hear all about how you escaped your dating rut. Good Luck!
