Your ex boyfriend may have been attracted by your looks when he first met you, but looks are not what makes most men fall in love. When the first excitement of dating wears off, it will take more than looks to make a man want to be with your forever. But, since you and your ex boyfriend had a relationship that lasted a while, there must have been more about you than just your good looks that made him fall in love with you.
The great thing about love is that it hardly ever completely dies. Something set your ex boyfriend off and he broke up with you, but a part of him longs to be back with you again. To get your ex back, you will have to concentrate on making him think of how much he enjoyed your company and how lost he feels without you. But if you are not careful, you will push him farther away by reminding him of the reason he broke up with you.
Whether you get your ex back or not will usually be decided within the first couple of months after the split. If you insist on staying close to your ex and telling him you can't live without him, you may lose whatever attraction he still feels for you. Think of when you got him before, you always made sure that he only saw you at your best. However chasing him, crying and begging does not make you look very attractive. In fact it might make him wonder what he ever saw in you that was attractive.
Before you had a relationship with him, you would never have thought of lowering yourself to begging him or any man for his love. You had men by the dozens begging you for a date and you could choose the one you wanted. Things haven't changed and you are still as attractive as you were back then and men will still run after you if you give them the chance. However, you have to make yourself available again.
The smart way to get your ex boyfriend back is to show him how much other men are attracted to you. To do that you can't be spending all of your time and energy on trying to get your ex boyfriend back. You have to become the woman he first met and that means always looking your best and going out with your friends and flirting with the guys. Getting your ex back can be as simple as showing him how lucky he is to have a lovely woman like you in love with him.
As long as you were acting like he was the only man who would want you, he didn't value you very much. But seeing how other men go after you will make him change his attitude fast. The more you play the game as you did when you first met him, the more your ex boyfriend's desire for you will increase. Soon he will be back practically on his knees and begging you to give him another chance.
