When your ex boyfriend is ignoring you it does something to the way you feel about yourself. This is the man who could not see enough of you and begged you for attention. When all of that stops and he walks away, you begin having self doubts and wonder what caused his change of attitude. However, this can be a great opportunity for you.
Most men feel they should be in control of a relationship. The reason for this can be as simple as him being a male and you a female. Your ex boyfriend may have been raised in a home where his father ruled the roost. That was accepted by women in the past, but things have changed. Most women today feel that they are the equal to any man and that could be the reason your ex broke up with you.

Many women today have their own career to consider and that can sometimes make a man feel neglected. He might feel that if he runs off and pouts like a small boy, you will pay more attention to him. However, if you fall into his trap, you are putting him into the drivers seat and you will always be in a position of trying to please him.
To be successful any relationship must be equal. There has to be mutual respect for each partner. No one should be in control and the other always trying to please. That is why, no matter how much you love the guy, you can't go chasing after him and beg for his love. The only way to get your ex back and have a satisfactory relationship is to fight fire with fire now.
When your ex ignores you, you must have the strength to ignore him. If you walk away from him and go on with your life, you will not be playing his childish game and if he truly is in love with you, he will respect you more than before. He will also have time to think and experience what his life is like without having you in it. This is not playing a game with him. It is using male psychology to make him grow up and be a man.
You have a right to your life and he must recognize that. Most men respect strong women and realize how valuable you can be in their life. Being without you will allow him to see how much he misses you and his whole attitude will change. Since you have not shown any weakness and begged for his love, he will think of your good points and love you all the more for having them.
Mutual respect makes for good friendship, and to make a relationship survive, you must be each other's best friend. This takes communication and what benter way to communicate to your ex boyfriend who is ignoring you than to ignore him as well? You will be sure to get his attention and that could make him see how important you are to his happiness.
