So the days of crying and depression over your ex boyfriend have now passed and your mind is focused on tricks to get him back. Good girl. If you really want him back in your arms, you should not waste so much time dwelling on what went wrong and instead directing your attention on how to make things right.
Getting an ex boyfriend is all about timing. You cannot just chase after him to no end after he just threw the white towel because that will just turn him off further. At all costs, do not show desperation. It is not a trick to get him back but a definite road to losing him for good.
You should strike a balance between giving him the space that he wants but still being visible to not be forgotten. A little space is always welcome and it may do you good too. After you both had the chance to breathe, here is what you do to get your ex boyfriend back:
1. Schedule an accidental meeting. The first time that he sees you again should catch him by surprise. It should not be something so structured because he may be tensed. What can you do is to accidentally bump into him on his way home after the gym or maybe accidentally catch him on his favorite coffee shop after work. The trick is to establish that spark again the moment he sees you after the break up.
2. Make sure you look your damn best. This is why depression is not a very good trick to get him back. It takes its toll on the way you look. What you need to do is take care of yourself, pamper yourself and enhance the way you look so that he will realize all that he has lost in a single glance!
3. Be casual. I will say it again because it is very important. Desperation is not an option so whatever you do, when you see each other again, make sure you do not mention the break up. You may feel a strong urge to beg and plead the first time you see it but bottle it all in first and instead greet him with a smile and make small talk. When you show him that you did not die after he left it may just give him the nudge that he needs in the right places. Do not over do it though or he may feel that you have moved on completely. Be polite and ask how everything is going and he may drop a hint here or there for you to tell where he is right now in his life. If he asks you to join him then go for it and get him back!
