When it’s over, it’s over – right? When it comes to matters of the heart, this is rarely the case. Anger, frustration, and the stresses of daily life can quickly dull the tarnish of true love. However, as soon as we call it quits, the realization sets in. The flame didn’t die, and you want your ex back. If this sounds familiar, there is no better time than the most romantic day of the year. If you’re planning to aim cupid’s arrow on February 14th, here are 7 sneaky tricks to win back your ex!
#1. The Ghost Of Valentines Past:
Do you find your mind gravitating toward romantic memories of Valentine’s days when things were better? Odds are, your love is thinking (and trying not to think) about those very same intimate moments. Make sure they CAN’T forget! You can try planting reminders, like an anonymous email advertisement for the restaurant you ate at, or the hotel you stayed in.
Do you remember what you wore that day? Wear the same thing, or something similar. What about perfume, cologne, or fragrant flowers? Scents will trigger memories faster than anything else. If possible, arrange for your Valentine to encounter familiar aromas, associated with special memories.
#2. The Accidental Message:
If you see, or speak to your lost love, surely you use some restraint. You would probably never be so bold as to describe the details of your wandering mind, fantasies. But it would certainly catch their attention, wouldn’t it? What if you were to send a blatantly romantic, sexy, email or text – followed up by an apology? The second message would read something like “I’m so sorry, that wasn’t meant for you.” This recipe should yield one serving of interest, one serving of jealously, and maybe even one Valentine’s date!
#3. The Secret Admirer:
This is similar to the above – designed to incite jealousy. If you think your ex might back off, rather than charge forward at the idea you have already replaced them, try this tactic. Remind them how soon they could be placed. All it takes is a simple call, text, email – whatever you prefer. Just thank your ex for the (gift, flowers, candy). When they ask what you are talking about, feel free to show how embarrassed you are for assuming it was them. You didn’t even know you had a secret admirer.
#4. Plea For Help:
Get a little creative with this one. Your car could break down near their house, and you need a ride. If you have any unresolved accounts (utilities, shared email) you could forget a security question, and desperately need access. If they have any special talents, such as computer skills, or auto repair that you always relied on – an emergency could always occur. Besides getting their time and attention (taking them away from the competition) this gives you an opportunity for a “friendly” thank you meal, or drink together.
#5. The Forgotten Gift:
Choose a special, meaningful gift that will melt your love’s heart. Pick something that shows how well you know them, and how much you care. Make sure it is something that could have been ordered in advance, before the split up. When you deliver it, explain how much you knew they would love it, so you pre-ordered it as soon as you saw it. With the confusion and stress of the split-up, you forgot to cancel the order. It’s so personal, you didn’t want to give it to anyone else, so you are presenting it a s moment of the many happy times you had together.
#6. The Sound of Romance:
Did the two of you have a special song? If so, hearing it probably conjures up the best memories of the relationship. Request it in their favorite radio station, give the DJ an extra tip to work that song in, attach it to an e-card. Whatever it takes, hearing that special song unexpectedly transports a person back to those memories. If you make sure this happens shortly before you happen to run into the other person, you will surely already be on their mind – in a good way!
#7. Crush The Competition:
Okay, this one is a little beyond sneaky. Maybe it’s even underhanded, but all is fair in love and war, right? If you have been replaced, it takes war to win your love back. Get the cell phone number of your rival, and secure a cell phone with a number your ex won’t recognize. When you know they are together, send a message accepting the (imaginary) invitation to sneak away for a rendezvous. If you know your ex’s schedule, be specific about time so they will be sure their new other is sneaking around while they are busy.
Don’t let this Valentine’s day turn into a time of heartbreak and loneliness. If you have to resort to sneaky tricks to win back your ex, go ahead. Try these 7 tips to get your ex back, or get creative and think of a few of your own. It’s time cupid’s arrow flies where you want it for a change!
