If you and your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend broke up and you want them back, there are a few things that you can try in order to try and make up and get back together.

Things You Will Need

Step 1

Give your ex boyfriend or Ex Girlfriend some space:
If you and your ex just recently broke up, try giving them some space. Don't call them, don't text them, don't email them and don't send them messages on Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc... Give them time to think things through. By giving your ex space, they may possibly soon start to think you are ignoring them, don't "really" want them anymore, or think you have moved on which will possibly make them start to miss you or realize that they truly don't want to be without you.

Step 2

Do something special for your Ex:
After things have cooled off a bit, do something special for your ex that you haven't done in a long time that will impress them and show them you still care. For example, write and mail them a love letter that says how much you still really love and care for them. Send them flowers or a box of their favorite candy with a note saying how you miss them. Create a CD of love music that expresses how you feel and mail it to your ex with a note. Be sure to add a line in all of your notes and letters that say something like, "Whenever you are ready to talk, please contact me... I will be waiting patiently... I miss you". This way, you aren't being pushy or trying to rush things, you are leaving things in their hand for when they are ready to talk.

Step 3

Talk to your ex boyfriend or ex girlfriend face-to-face:
After you have gotten positive feedback from your Ex from the nice gestures you sent them, and they have contacted you, instead of talking over the phone, through, email or text, etc... ask them if they could meet you face to face so you can have a conversation. This way, your ex will be able to see from your expressions and emotions how sorry you are. If you want to impress them even more when you meet, buy them a card that says how sorry you are or write them a poem and read it to them as soon as you meet up to try and soften things first before having your serious conversation.
