"I hurt my boyfriend's feelings." Most of us have unfortunately said this at some point. The moment when you first realize that what you did or said stung your boyfriend is the very moment you want to crawl in a hole and hide. It's horrible to hurt the person you care about the most. Even though he may tell you that he's over it, things aren't the same. Perhaps he's pulled back a bit or he's less affectionate. If you leave this unattended, he may start to resent you for the pain you caused him and inevitably that's the beginning of the end of your relationship. You have to act now if you want to smooth things over and get him to feel closer to you again.

Obviously, it goes without saying that an apology is critical if you've hurt the feelings of the man you love. How you handle the apology is very important. What most women are inclined to do is to continue to apologize after the first attempt. If he doesn't seem to be accepting the apology, don't badger him into doing so. If you've tried to make amends with him, that's all you can do. Resorting to buying him things or sending him love letters won't help. In fact, they'll damage things more because he'll feel as though you're trying to buy back his love. Just tell him genuinely and sincerely that you're sorry and leave it at that.

It's inevitable that a man will pull back if he's been hurt. All human beings do. It's part of our emotional defense mechanism. How you handle his need for space will determine the future of your relationship.

You need to draw on your maturity after you've hurt your boyfriend's feelings and give him time to process and absorb it. He may need a break from you. If you fight him on that, you're literally suggesting to him that his needs matter little compared to yours. However, if you accept that you did hurt him and to get over that he needs some space, he'll be touched that you respect him that much.

The key is to not let him slip away. Even if he has pulled back, be supportive and compassionate. Let him know that you're always available to talk with him about anything. Once he's put some time and distance between himself and the episode that hurt him, he'll be open to forgiveness. Be patient and understanding and he'll see the good in you again.

Three Step Process for Making Him Crawl His Way Back To You

Do you ever look back on your relationship with your ex boyfriend and see it as the best thing that ever happened to you? Do you think about the possibility that maybe - just maybe - you were the one that made the mistakes and you really left your ex boyfriend with no options other than to break things off with you? Do you sit there, alone and lonely, trying to figure out what you can do to get your ex boyfriend back in your life?

If so, then take heart: not only is it possible for you to get your ex boyfriend back but you just might be able to turn the tables on him and make him be the one to come crawling back to you and plead with your for another chance at romance.

Your First Step to Getting Your Ex Boyfriend Back

No matter who happened and who said what to whom, you've got to let go of any disempowering emotions that you've wrapped around the break up and around your dream of getting your ex boyfriend back.

And then you need to take an honest, hard - almost clinical - look at the factors that led up to your break up.

And then you need to understand - and accept - your contribution to the break up. Things you said and did - as well as things you didn't say and didn't do - that, collectively, led your boyfriend to think "I've had it" and led him to utter those four dreadful words "we need to talk..."

Your Second Step to Getting Your Ex Boyfriend Back

After you've done some self-analysis on what went wrong and why, you need to enter into a "cooling off" period - during which time you'll have no contact with your ex boyfriend.

This is essential for two reasons:

  • You'll be able to go to work on building up your self-confidence and on taking the steps to move on with your life so that you can feel happy with or without your ex boyfriend in your life - spend time concentrating on your career, starting a new fitness program, getting a new wardrobe, reconnecting with friends and family you may have lost a little contact with
  • Your ex boyfriend will have the space and time to begin to appreciate what he had, and what he has lost - and he'll begin to hunger for you after he starts to hear about the fact that you appear to have moved on, that you're looking better than ever, that you seem to be having lots of fun, and that, ultimately, you appear to be totally over the break up

How you spend the time apart from your ex boyfriend will ultimately make him see you as someone who is strong, confident, and independent. Someone who is the type of person any man would want in his life. Someone who your ex boyfriend will want in his life and who will cause him to grow increasingly unhappy without.

Your Third Step to Getting Your Ex Boyfriend Back

You'll know when the time is right to end the cooling off period because your ex boyfriend will be showing signs that he's desperate for you to take him back. At this point, it's okay to accept short phone calls from him and to even, on occasion, let him visit you. Just make sure that you don't allow him to get too close to you if you do have some face-time together. You don't want him thinking that you need or want him back.

As time rolls on and things progress, you can start to let him off the hook at little bit at a time as you allow him an increasing amount of your time and space.

While there are no guarantees of anything in life, rest assured that if you follow this simple process you'll dramatically increase your chances of getting your ex boyfriend back - and maybe even make him come crawling back to you, pleading with you to take him back.

These are the first steps in a proven strategy to get your ex back? It doesn't stop here, though. What you do next is crucial to get your ex back. Don't throw away your chances by not knowing what to do next. To read the shocking revelation that holds the final key to get your ex back visit: Ex Back Guide
