Valentine’s Day – the Perfect Opportunity to Get Back With Your Ex

If you have recently gone through a breakup with your boyfriend/girlfriend, you want to make up and get back together. There couldn’t be a better time than Valentine’s Day to make that happen.

Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days for couples to get back together after a breakup.

So why do so many couples get back together on Valentine’s Day?

The solution is relatively straightforward, in contrast to the usual activities associated with other holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc., which include spending time with one’s family and close friends. Valentine’s Day has historically been celebrated as a day to romantic relationships.

Therefore, taking advantage of this offer is an excellent chance for everyone interested in reconciling with a former partner. When your exes are going through this phase, they are missing you just as much as you are ignoring them. Even more so if the breakup occurred within the most recent few months of their relationship.

Get Back With Your Ex

Just because it is Valentine’s Day does not mean your ex will automatically rush back into your arms. But with some specific preparation, it will give a window of time to begin a process that will assist right the circumstances that lead to your split up.

Before you start your journey to get back together with your ex, there are certain things to consider, and we’ll get to those in just a bit. First, plan a date with your ex on Valentine’s Day, so you can get things started. So how are you going to do that? Try this.

Call your ex a day or two before Valentine’s Day and say something like this: “Hi ______ You know Valentine’s Day is coming up, and I was hoping we could put our differences aside for the day and spend a little time together”. Then shut up, don’t rattle on and sound desperate.

If you have been following my articles, you should get a positive response because you haven’t constantly been calling or stalking them, and you have a good reason for calling. If you haven’t been bothering them, your ex is also thinking about you and is probably expecting to hear from you and may even be hoping to.

Be prepared to offer suggestions for the date that would not make your ex feel like their being trapped into being alone with you, like dinner at your place. Dinner at a casual restaurant will make them feel less pressured. Bring a gift, but don’t give it to them immediately; stay away from facilities that are too romantic or show a desperate attempt to impress them.

Choose a simple gift that shows that you are in tune with their interests. If your ex enjoys reading, a new release book would be a good gift, or if they are into video games, the latest game would be a good gift. Just remember to keep it simple and something that they are interested in.

Keep your conversation casual, and at no point bring up the subject of the breakup. You don’t want to remind them why the two of you broke up. Try to avoid any subject that can somehow be associated with the breakup. Instead, talk about what’s currently going on in each others life’s, treat it as a first date without any open expectations.

If your ex does happen to bring up the breakup, be prepared to discuss it, but only if they bring it up. If the breakup was your fault, show your ex that you have gone back through the events that led to the breakup and that you clearly understand what they were upset about. If the breakup was over something your ex did, do the exact same thing, your ex may not realize that he/she did anything wrong.

After dinner, if your ex suggests continuing the date, accept, but do not make that suggestion yourself. At the end of the date, tell your ex that you had a good time and hope you can do it again. If you’ve made it this far, you have completed a major step in getting back together with your ex.

Don’t blow it now; give your ex some time to digest the time they just spent with you. Don’t call them right away; wait for another good reason to spend some time together. Unless, of course, your ex calls you. Or has specifically asked you to call.

Remember, just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean your ex magically falls back into your arms. It’s just the perfect opportunity for you to begin the makeup process. Be patient, not pushy.
