Meeting Up With An Ex Can Backfire!
By Jennifer Seiter. Understanding how you act around your ex is an essential part of getting your ex back and in this post I am going to give you 6 powerful tips that you must read so you are prepared before running into your ex. I get questions everyday in our private Facebook community about how to act around an ex if you accidentally run into him or her during a no contact period , the first meet up and in the rebuilding attraction phase.
I am actually going to give you a detailed explanation of each below,. It may come as a big shock to them if you had established a pattern of being a jealous person during your relationship.
Talking about the breakup during a meet up is a devastating mistake that will set you back in this process. The no contact rule is a great way to reset things with your ex but when you bring up the past it reminds them of why they left you in the first place.
Instead of talking about the past with your ex make sure you come prepared with incredible stories. He was so skinny from not eating. I know how much you love dogs especially Labs. Would you like to see the pictures of him?
Your story should be centered around your exes interests. A common mistake that I see my clients making is focusing stories around themselves. In the example above, the story is made with the intention that the ex loves dogs. The result is that they would find the story heartwarming and sweet. Being too nice is a very common mistake that I see with the members of our support group. They think if they go out of their way for their ex or are overly nice the ex will fall in love all over again.
Subtle jealously is important but if you come on too strong you are going to scare your ex and they will run for the door. This will create an unbalanced friendship where you are constantly going out of your way for your ex and they are using you emotionally or sometimes even physically.
My husband, Chris Seiter writes about something called the benjamin franklin effect,. Benjamin Franklin Effect: if you ask someone to do a favor for you they are likely to do more favors. You can start to do favors for your ex when you are back together but until then you do not want to end up in a friend-zone. Chris writes about the 11 ways you can scientifically make your ex fall in love with you here and I recommend that you study that before meeting up with your ex as well.
Just the other day a member of our private Facebook group signed up for coaching because she ran into her ex and the encounter went like this. He was standing there looking handsome as ever and there I was standing there with a stained shirt, messy bun and sweat pants.
Is there anything more embarrassing then that? Can you help me fix this? I feel so hopeless and devastated! Should I restart no contact? After coaching with her I was able to help her turn that situation around with the tips I just gave you.
We are here to guide you in the right direction and have seen pretty much every mistake you can think of when it comes to getting an ex back. And if you are that worried all you have to do is leave a comment and my husband and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

We were recently at a mutual friends party, first time seeing each other in a while. How does all of this sound to you guys? Hey there so if you are looking to get your ex back then you need to start with a 45 day NC because he has met someone else.
While you work on your Holy Trinity during that time. Then reach out following the advice of the being there method. Hi there I been seeing a guy for the last two months. In my mind I always knew that I liked him even if it was just looking up IDK if he felt the same way.
We had sex 3 times and deep down I was not okay with the fact that we are just having sex awith no title. I kept on hearing stories about him wanting a girl in my circle. It hurt me because I feel all he ever said to me was a lie now he is hooking up with the very same girl in my circle when my friend ask him about me he makes an excuse saying that I kissed his friend. I was hurt by all of this but his best friend is also my friend and all he does most of the time when his with me is to mention him.
Although his still hooking up with the girl in my circle his best friend still considers me as his girl IDK why. Hi I am Sayan from India. My situation is — Up until she went to her hometown and it became long distance, everything was going fine. But suddenly she stopped talking to me and I enquired it repeatedly and then she blocked me for a day and then unblocked me, then again I asked very nicely many times that what was her real problem, why she acted in such a way.
I accepted it as I thought it was my only ground left to talk to her. After a day I found out she was abusing me and giving some false allegations regarding me to our common friends and I asked her about it and we had a fight, she abused me and I abused her and then she blocked me from everywhere and its been a month now.
Then I read your guide and told my common friend to not to speak about me to her from now on, maintain the silence from everywhere. I am thinking to text her from a new number after 10 days from now, some pictures of us from our good old times and saying that I was deleting the old stuff.
What do you think? Could this work? What other things can I do to get her back? Please help out, please give me some advices. I found out that my boyfriend had sex with another girl. We have been together for almost 2 years but We were in an open relationship period because of long distance but an important boundary was absolutely no sex with anyone else. There was once situation before this where I kissed another guy and he was scarred from that. He lied to me about the sex while I visited him, changing the story into a less hurtful one.
Only when I left the visit and we were not physically in the same state did he tell me the truth about the specifics of the situation, which were much worse.
The sex happened much more recently than I expected. He was very devastated while talking about both situations, the fake story and the real story. I broke up with him once he told me the real story and it was devastating because I was not prepared for the relationship to end. I ended up reaching out to him after a week of silence because the situation was not resolved in a remotely healthy way and was causing huge stress.
Those conversations over the phone were a lot of crying and he was insisting that he needs time and space and that we could not move forward right now because of all of the drama. He also said that we should just be friends and not romantic once we are in the same place again. All of this was mixed with tears and him telling me he loves me but has been dealing with a lot of insecurity and trust problems in our relationship.
Before I found this out, it really was all love coming from him and excitement and eagerness about our future together. But I guess he was dealing with some underlying issues and did not communicate them to me like he should have. But this past month he has been viewing and liking all of mine own and my families social media. He also was like posting songs about me to a playlist. I want advice on how to approach seeing him for the first time, we have a lot of stuff to give back to each other.
Should I reach out to him about that once the time comes or wait till he does? I think some of the things he was saying over the phone was just him trying to protect himself.
I know this no contact period is good but now as we are about to see eachother soon I need help navigating this. I miss him very much and I am still very in love with him.
I think sometimes I do make excuses for him and his behavior because he really always was so good to me before this all happened but I also think time without a boyfriend would be good for me right now. Hi Chris, I am in a huge ordeal. I am devastated. He proclaims it was my 10 year old son.
I know I should do the no contact rule. I run into him at the gym, and he hugs me and kisses me at times. He just says he needs time to think. He was going to be my husband. My forever. I want to work through the issue, but I feel he resorted to being a teenager by running back home to Mom. I have helped him so much establish his life, and we truly get along great. We had a wonderful relationship. Everyone said he got cold feet and scared.
I am torturing myself I feel like holding onto hope, but I feel like I should move on. Please help. Hi Amanda…he probably did get cold feet…somewhat afraid of losing independence. Just continue to take some space and time for yourself and see how he behaves and his level of interest and commitment.
You will have an opportunity to decide later what is best for you and your child as you gain more insights into his intentions. My boyfriend and I dated for three months before we broke up before Thanksgiving.
Why Would An Ex Boyfriend Want To Meet Up?
And if the answer is yes, you may want to lower your expectations of the meetup and postpone it for a few months. Your ex might not even be interested in reconciliation and may only want to assuage his or her guilt or talk to you about something that no longer concerns you. So instead of meeting up with an ex shortly after the breakup, it might be in your best interest to avoid unnecessary stress and anxiety and stay in no contact. They very rarely do, so try not to get overwhelmed with false hope and continue progressing through the 5 stages of a breakup for the dumpee. Please keep in mind that by inviting you out, your ex may plan to use you for his or her own selfish reasons and discard you again the moment your ex gets what he or she wants.
M y ex is one of my closest friends. We split seven years ago after a two-year relationship, but we, and our families, are still close. She even organised my last birthday party. You have to grieve the loss and watch them move on without you.
How To Act Around Your Ex
By Chris Seiter. He took your heart, threw it to the ground, stomped on it, and then took a sledgehammer to crush the remaining pieces to dust. Why would he want to meet up? Well, there is the obvious — you have things you need to exchange, or other business that needs to be tied up. But what if that stuff has already been taken care of? Why would an ex want to meet up? You are in a prime position if this is the case. Missing you is the first step to getting him back. I know how stressful the first meet up can be.
Lunch With My First Love, 20 Years Later
It's a nice thought: having coffee with your ex lover. Spending a few hours one afternoon across from the person you once gave your heart to, now older, wiser. Theoretically, it could be both progressive and comforting to find space for an old flame in your new life. It would mean that it wasn't all for nothing — you're adults now, you can be civil, right? A friendship would validate the relationship's demise, wouldn't it?
