Should I make my ex girlfriend jealous?

Want to know how to make your ex girlfriend jealous?

It is one of the most classic schemes to try to get back an ex-lover, namely, making your ex-girlfriend jealous. In fact, this solution is so logical, basic and instinctive that it is the first thing that pops up on people’s minds when they want to get their ex back.

Be warned however, that if you do not exercise caution (if you choose to employ this strategy), it could backfire and cause irreparable harm that might ruin your chances of getting your ex-girlfriend back forever.

Have you considered the disadvantages?

While most people are aware of the perceived advantages of using jealousy tactics to get their ex back, not all are aware of the disadvantages of this ever-popular “get your ex back” strategy.

  • Perceived Advantage: One of the core advantages that most people see in using jealousy is that it makes them seem more desirable to their ex and it affirms their self-worth.

  • Possible Disadvantage: The downside is that the use of jealousy tactics can also spark the wrong kind of feelings in your ex-girlfriend. In some cases, instead of merely getting jealous, your ex-lover might become infuriated enough to actually channel her hatred towards you and try and make you jealous back.

Don’t Use Jealousy Straight After The Breakup!

In fact, although jealousy can be very effective, it is not a very good idea to use it so soon after a breakup – especially a bad one. There is a good chance that some negative feelings might still be present since the breakup and having your ex see you having a good time with other women will just make her go and get a guy of her own to give you a taste of your own medicine.

In my book “THE LOVEMAP CODE: How To Make Someone Fall In Love With You Using Psychology” I show the correct way to make an ex jealous so that they’ll come back to you …without any of the possible disadvantages that can be a possibility if you employ the tactic of making them jealous the wrong way.

If you really want to win your ex-girlfriend back, your best choice is to keep a level-head and think about what really led to the breakup. There might be some issues that you will need to resolve about yourself or some compromises that you need to make for your ex. The use of guilt, jealousy, manipulation or other underhanded tactics is never advisable.
