Dating Your Ex: 10 Rules Worth Following

First Date With An Ex: 3 Rules To Re-Attract The One You Love

By Chris Seiter. I am actually in the process of rewriting my most popular book, Ex Boyfriend Recovery PRO and in the process of writing it I actually came up with a new overall strategy that you should follow if you want to successfully get your ex boyfriend back. Now, some of you who are familiar with my work know that I like making graphics to demonstrate things and it just so happens that for this new strategy that I came up with to get an ex back I created an infographic. So, I am going to give you a quick glimpse of the into an infographic that I created with the intention of being available for only paying members,. Of course, since I am rewriting Ex Boyfriend Recovery PRO and I see how much more is getting added to it I feel comfortable diving in to a topic that I have never covered before on this website. Take the quiz.

Now, with that in mind there may be a time where you ex boyfriend actively brings up a memory from the failed relationship.

If he does this do your very best to not react to it him talking about the memory. Just listen to what he has to say, nod your head a lot and be cool with everything. If you have to, agree with them, to mellow things out. In this case I want you to do more listening than talking. I like going out on dates, I really do. Well, let me be more specific. I like going out on dates with women I actually want to date. Unfortunately, I have made a lot of mistakes in the past during my dates.

Probably the biggest one is spending too much time with them on a date. One girl in particular springs to mind. I ended up meeting her on a Friday and we stayed up the entire night until 5 a. Somewhere in the craziness of texting she suggested that we go out on a date on Saturday the very next day. I think the date started at 11 a. Boy was that a mistake. I could tell the next day that she was burnt out and I had ruined my chance.

I would say keep the date somewhere between 30min — 1 hr and 30min. Preferably the one hourish range. That leaves your ex intrigued but wanting more. What do you need help with? Getting My Ex Back.

Knowing Exactly What To Text. I am one of the simplest guys out there. In fact, I would very much like to go on a fancy date. I have just learned something about dating through my own personal experience. A girl could take me to a McDonalds and as long as I have a strong connection with her I would be more than happy. If I am really interested in a girl I am not going to take her to the movies. However, spending two hours in a dark theater surrounded by strangers is hardly my idea of a way to form a connection with someone.

That is the biggest problem with the movies. I want to go somewhere that can be fun for both parties but quiet enough to where you can talk and build or rebuild a connection with someone. My go to date for women I am taking out the first time is going to sound corny but it works. You see, laser tag is exciting enough to remember but it also can be fun if you get put on the same team.

Besides, after the game is finished you can sit down and talk. The way I like to incorporate laser tag on a first date is pretty simple. What I will do is ask a girl out on a date but I will do so in a very specific way. I will call her up and ask her something like:. If she says yes then I know I am golden because not only will she have a great time at laser tag but I can get my friends to say good things about me which will shape her perception of me. I took one girl to laser tag but I just asked her to do it one on one with no friends involved.

At the time I was nursing a stress fracture in my left foot. It was in the process of healing but it was still pretty messed up. I was in an extreme amount of pain.

I remember that we had taken my car so I had to drive her back. When the time finally came to drop her off she looked over at me and smiled. As she stopped hugging she looked up at me for the kiss and I said the following:. I had a broken foot and I wanted to go home and ice the darn thing. I essentially threw here out of my car in a nice way of course. Picking a date location, when it comes to your ex boyfriend, will mostly depend on your overall grasp of the situation you are in.

The reason I mention Starbucks is because the one where I live has a lot of comfortable couches and chairs that you can sit in and just carry a conversation. Whatever you choose to do with your ex boyfriend make sure it is somewhere where the two of you can just enjoy each others company. Need help actually getting a date with your ex? I am going to be talking about things like hugging, kissing and whether or not you can use them on your date.

I want to take a timeout for a second to voice my frustration with dating and physical contact. One of my biggest frustrations about dating is that whenever I go on a first date I never know what to do. Should I kiss her? Should I not kiss her? Nevertheless, I have learned a lot from the school of hard knocks and picked up some valuable knowledge along the way. Look, hugging breaks the barrier for physical contact. Any time I go on a date with someone the very first thing I do is walk up to them with my arms outstretched the universal sign for a hug and they accept my hug every single time.

I recommend that you do the same thing. Just walk up to your ex with a big smile and arms outstretched and the next thing you know the two of you are hugging eachother.

Now, where I see some women getting in trouble with hugging is when they hold the hug longer than it should be held. So, we have already established that we are going to start the date off with a hug now the question becomes which hug should we start with? Well, I guarantee that you are going to freak your ex boyfriend out if you see him and then give him one of those long hugs right off the bat. Remember pullers are people who show too much interest.

That means that you are shooting for a short hug. Walk up to him smile and arms outstretched and give him a nice hug. It is just a simple hug and release like I explained above. This is the subject I really wanted to cover. I have some interesting stories to share and also some interesting information I learned. Though, I will say it is a good thing if you do because it is a sign that he really has some feelings for you.

I feel compelled to mention that because I see some women making this mistake and it usually never works out for them. This is kind of a big deal. When I was 20 years old I ended up going on a date with a girl one night. For one, I did the dreaded dinner and movie combination but the biggest mistake I made was not reading the signs correctly and going in for a kiss when I had no reason to.

I was very nervous but I really wanted to kiss this girl. So, after I got my courage up I went in for the kiss. I can still see her face to this day. Yup, I got friendzoned after that.

About to start dating your ex again? Know which pitfalls to avoid, and how you can not only get your boyfriend back but keep him happy enough to stay forever!. What are the rules for going on a date with your ex boyfriend? How do you act? What do you say? Where do you go? I answer those questions.

So, as a guy I learned from that experience. I know that you have to search for the signs that a girl wants you to kiss her. This leads us to our next point:. When I look at your situation you being on a date with your ex I am under the firm belief that these societal standards should remain in place.

That means that if you want a guy to kiss you he is going to have to do so under his own power. Of course, there are certain hints that you can drop that he will pick up on that will tell him it is ok for him to kiss you.

Men will be looking for these hints and if they deem the situation appropriate they will kiss you. It is as simple as that. Lets take a look at a few of the most popular hints that you can drop. You can think one of my friends for this little nugget of information she is a model so she knows what shes talking about.

If you send a flirtatious smile your exes way throughout the date you can in a way condition him to kiss you.

This is something I began to notice women do when they are very attracted to you. I think a visual aid here is the best way to describe this phenomenon.

Just looking at that picture kind of turns me on! This is my favorite thing in the entire world. Seriously I live for making a woman do this. One thing I have noticed about women who are attracted to me and want me to kiss them is they do this funny thing with their hair. Again, I want to give you another visual que to look at. I will tell you what I notice. I notice a girl who is in the process of pulling her hair back behind her ear my favorite thing that women do EVER! A woman who does this on a date after something I say definitely likes me.

It is like this nervous tick that is genetic among all of you and I love it. Though back to the point playing with your hair is a big indicator that you want a man to kiss you. Basically, any time you are sitting next to a guy and you lean your head on his shoulder it is another way of dropping a hint that you want to be kissed. When I was 20 years old I was always hanging out with a girl that was very pretty.

Anyways, eventually we got into a situation where we were sitting next to each other and she leaned her head on my shoulder. In other words, I was a big chicken and froze up. She gave me multiple opportunities to kiss her as well but I would always freeze up every time. I know, I know I am a total idiot and I regret it every single day. However, it was that failure that caused me to take more chances. So, in a way it was the best thing that ever happened to me.

Me and my ex were together for 4 years we broke up once by him last year. I asked if we could meet which he agreed and he said only as friends and he does not want me to expect anything more as he needs to focus on himself. What do I do now? Do I text him and chase him? Ok, my ex boyfriend broke up with me and I did the no contact rule for a month and a half. When I finally called him he was overjoyed with excitement and of course I got excited! He said he wanted to see me and I then began to play hard to get this was stupid.

I over did it and we had agreed on a date of course after I was a little apprehensive of weather or not we should meet!

Sunday came and neither one of us texted and when I finally did it was passed 7 p.

The first time he asked me for a hug and I said we could wait until Sunday, which never happened. Then I asked him for a hug and he said yes, I stopped by gave him one and he kissed me many times and could stop doing so! I broke all rules and ruined it all because this is not what I wanted to hear. He had asked me to go to church but I think after my reaction I scared him away. He has recently started therapy to work on himself. I was thinking I should give him months to sort himself out not contacting him and then I should reach out.

What should I do? We had been together almost a year and he said he thought it best to break it up now before we got too serious and he went even more into himself. LD boy-friend broke up with me, seeing someone else but still wanted to meet me….

I did around 20 days of NC before the date and he was liking everything I was posting. Then we met halfway between our cities. Amazing date, he apologised for the way he talked to me during the phone call that led to the breakup.

Then during lunch he immediately said he wanted to visit me in my town next and he was a bit touchy and flirty. I asked him about the other woman instead and said they were seeing each other. So I asked him what he wanted to do with us. He said he wanted to continue to hang out platonically and get to know each other and see where things goes. Just to mention a stupid excuse…we both love reading and we went to a bookshop on this date…said I had a book from an author he loves and asked me to look for it cuz he would come pick it up….

During our date though I never expressed the idea that I really thought it would be a good idea to get back together. I know breakups can be confusing. You guys seems to be stuck in that middle post breakup zone of pushing and pulling.

You might want to take a look at my program and then size up which approach you would like to employ. I have lots of tools and resources…just check out my home page!

I really wanted a hug or a kiss. Is he not interested in me? Or does he look at me as a friend now? Often the 1 mistake I see women making is going on a date without having any type of attraction built up. Hi Amor, For first date what kind of topics should we talk about? I just want to get an idea of the kind of topics I should avoid or talk about.

I know I should not be mentioning our previous relationship for sure. What do you think are some topics that are good to open? Thank you! Make it light. The back story is, we had been seeing each other for almost 2 years but never were exclusive because I lived in another country for 3 months at a time.

Of course I was furious, and he tried to make it up to me over a birthday dinner the next week- I told him that it was not cool and that I needed some time to think about things…. So tomorrow is the day- he said the last time we hung it really threw him off, and thinks catching up should be friendly if anything.

A woman hugging her ex, wondering if it's a good idea to get back together suddenly falling back into the patterns that allow bad habits to rule your lives.

I did everything wrong begged, pleaded very desperate. We had a great relationship as far as we got along great, we had so much fun together, we rarely fought. I also go very close with his family we would go to family dinners and events every week. His grandmother still texts me today. He is 25 and I am I have been in a couple LTRs the last one being 7 yrs, however I was his longest relationship. He lost his mother when he was in high school so he has learned how to deal with crazy loss and bottle it up and push it down.

He is a very logical person and I am more wacky. We met at the gym and fell hard for each other. However, I had just been out of my 7yr relationship for only a couple months, I was not expecting to meet someone else right away.

I think I was still dealing with a lot of inner turmoil and grief from the last relationship I broke up with him, but still care about him a lot. So I think there was a lot with me under the surface and about 6 times throughout the 1. I lost a lot of friends when my 7yr ex and I broke up and I felt very dependent on my new boyfriend for my happiness. I did when we started dating and I think that is what attracted me to him. I also gained 20lbs while we were together, due to a new job, my inner stress, we both got minor injuries so we both stopped the gym for a while and that was something that really bonded us.

I think we just got into a very routine relationship. I went NC after a month and did it for 11days very difficult. This is the longest I had ever gone with out talking to him. Well I had some of my camera equipment still at his house we do freelance videography togetherso I just texted him after the 11 days asking if anyone was around his house where I could come get my equipment.

He then replied quickly and said he was around for a couple hours. So we live near each other I had to move in with my mom while I find a new place, she lives 5 min from him. So the gym that we both go to is near his house so I was planning on getting the equipment and going to the gym. So I went there, and in this 1. He got up and gave me a really good hug, smiling.

He then proceeded to tell me I look great and he can tell I have been working hard. I acted happy, no cares in the world. We talked for a little bit and caught up it was not awkward. So after min of chatter I told him that I had to head out. He asked if I was going to the gym and I said yeah.

While we were there I was very upbeat, friendly, no pressure. I did not try to be very flirty, just smiley and chill. Smacking my stomach during crunches, cute little pokes. So the next day he was set to have 2 wisdom teeth pulled. I told myself to just go back to NC, we had a great time hanging out and he was showing signs of interest so I did not want to push it, so I did not text him the next day. I was friendly but short with each reply. This is the first time he has texted me first in a LONG time.

This transpired yesterday, that is why I am writing now. He was very engaged in texting and he has never been much of a text convo person to begin with so it was surprising he kept the conversation going. He is swollen up from the wisdom teeth so I know he is not trying to hook up. I think when we went to the gym and he saw that I was moving forward, looking good, no pressure on him, no negativity it may have sparked something in him.

I think I could hang for a little bit on Thursday evening tomorrow. This conversation happened yesterday. We are going to have a little wisdom teeth milkshake party two of us due to his wisdom teeth…so after all that my question is, how should I act… we are just going to be at his house.

I was planning on looking awesome casual but awesome going over being upbeat, friend like. So if we end up watching a movie or something should I sit on a different couch then him? How long should I stay. I love him so much. Sorry so long, just need to know how I should act tomorrow night, what should I do after. I know he loves me.

I am the first girl he has told he loves, his longest relationship. I am seeing a counselor to get over my issues so I have no more drunken random freakouts. Limited nc is for co parents and co workers or housemates only. So that means you have to do full nc, at least 30 days and to stick to it this time because the more you do it, the less it can help you. Hi there! I hurt him by leaving.

We have remained friends. I never approach him; he approaches me. So we have dinner about once a month. At this juncture, I have no idea if he still has any feelings for me. Last week, he picked me up and we had dinner, then we went to our old ice cream place. He was apologetic for things like his road rage that night lol, and texting while with me etc.

That surprised me! We had a great time. Very relaxing evening. Some laughs. He walked me to my door after.

I walked him out. He hugged me. It was a slightly longer hug. Here is where I get confused and am in agony. But then he stopped himself. Our evening felt like a first date. And he did kiss me on the cheek on our first date when we met.

We always hug after our monthly dinners. My confusion lies in, I am unsure of how he feels for me. And it hurts. Does the kiss on the cheek, mean anything? But this evening we had, I could still sense a connection between us. What do you think? Last night, I asked my ex if he would like to come to a basketball game with me. I reiterated that I understood his reservations considering how hot and cold and emotional I had been in the past.

My boyfriend broke up with me after 4 years because I said that I wanted marriage or for us to live together. I went 8 months with no contact and asked him to a sporting event in a city half way between where we are both living. I will be staying in a hotel. How do I politely decline if he wants to be intimate? I do want to get back with him.

So I dated my ex boyfriend for 6 months. We had some really good times and were very in love. We live about an hour and 30 mins away from each other. I went straight in with NC for 3 weeks and then messaged him.

Re establishing contact has very much been led by me. But when he has messaged back he has been positive and friendly. I then called him and we. Are meeting next week for tea. On the phone he said he was worried that the meeting might make me upset. Should I be disheartened? Do you think I have a chance or am I wasting my time?

How can I turn things around? How much did you improve during that 3 weeks and are you still improving now?

If there was no rapport and attraction built during the texting and calling phase, the meet up is less likely to be well. But, the best you can do right now is to use that meet up as an opportunity to leave a good impression by looking your best and having fun.

I will be meeting my ex we were together 6 months this weekend exactly 3 months since we last saw each other we officially broke up a month after I did no contact for just over 30 days and we have been texting now for around a month just light friendly texts but he hasnt shown me any emotion or feelings but he has been consistently asking to see me so finally I have agreed to go to his city. We live miles apart so I will stay in a hotel that night.

Rules for dating an ex boyfriend

Is this going to be too much of gap between a second date? Or is it better to see him and leave him to think about me again for the next month or so? If you don't feel comfortable, say so. Arrange to get together at a neutral spot to establish the ground rules for moving forward and dating again.

Psychologist Dr. Shirley Glass, an expert on infidelity issues, stresses the importance of insisting on personal accountability. If, for example, you broke up with him because he was cheating on you, it needs to be clear you have zero tolerance for him continuing to have a relationship with the other woman in person, on the phone or via email. As part of the healing process, she also points out that you, in turn, need to let go of your suspicions and obsessions that every time he's now out of your sight he must be cheating.

Revisit favorite places to remind yourselves of the happy memories you created together. According to McGuire, it's also important to try out new things and experience one another in settings that aren't familiar to either of you as part of the reacquaintance process. This is especially important if you take your ex somewhere you used to go with an interim love interest.

The last thing you want to do in your rekindling phase is to make him think you're making comparisons. Recognize when the second chance has run its course and it's time to close the door.
