Breaking up with someone you love is one of the hardest things. But what if you are not over your ex and you belive that the relationship can be saved? Here are 5 tips that might help you:
1. Understand the break-up. What did each of you do to contribute to the break-up? The odds are that it wasn't a one-sided problem. Realizing what you did wrong will help strengthen the relationship if you get back together, and if nothing else, will help you avoid similar mistakes in future relationships

2. Find out if they are still interested. Before you start doing anything to try and win back your ex's heart, you need to know for sure whether they still care or not. Knowing if your ex still cares about you is the first most important clue and hint that things can still be mended.
3. Focus on yourself. Hang out with your friends. Throw yourself into work and other extracurricular activities. You don't want to seem needy or like you are waiting for your ex to contact you again.
4. Do not stop them from seeing other people. If you start to complain and whine, you will instantly drive your ex away to that third party. Human nature is such that the more you stop them from having something, the more they want it. On the other hand, respect their choices and freedom. Do not let jealousy set in. Trust that if there was true happiness between you and if your ex wants to be happy, they'll eventually see that getting back together is the best choice. They just need time to get through the fog of whatever caused your breakup.
5.Take a good look at yourself. When you first fell in love with your partner, what type of a person were you? When things fall apart, others will tell you that people change. However, you should take a moment and think “Have I changed? Am I a better, happier person now than I was then?” If you can honestly say you haven't changed for the better, perhaps you've defaulted to some bad habits or let your fears and worries get the best of you.
These are just some of the tips that might help get you ex back.
