If you have recently gone through breakup, chances are good that you are still on your ex's mind. However, what they may be remembering are the bad times, the things that caused the breakup in the first place. What you need to do is get them thinking about the good times, remembering why the two of you fell in love in the first place.
Many people think that something like calling the local radio station and requesting that “your song” be played over and over again will do the trick but it will take much more than that.
There are some top secret maneuvers you can pull to get your ex reminiscing but they will require that you do a bit of work and you must be willing to be just a bit sneaky. Before you get started, make sure that you know all the steps you are going to be taking. Once you have successfully gotten your ex's attention, you will need to be ready to flow smoothly into the rest of your plan.
The mainstay of this plan is so simple that it may seem ridiculous but it will work. All you need to do is make a quick phone call to get the ball rolling. It's what you say on this call that makes all the difference.
Wait several weeks after the breakup. This will give both you and your ex time to calm down. It is also necessary for the plan to work. Call your ex at a time when you are sure that they will not be available to answer the call. In order for the plan to work, you need to leave a message, not talk to them directly to your ex.
So, here's the deal:
You make the call and the message you leave goes something like this, “Hey ___ (fill your ex's name in the blank), I know it’s been awhile since we've spoken but I just wanted to take the time to say thank you. If you have the time, I would like to thank you in person. Let me know when and where you would like to meet.”
Now, hang up the phone and take a deep breath.
That's it, that’s all you need to do. When your ex listens to the message their curiosity will be piqued. They will not be able to stop wondering what it is that you want to thank them for. Even if at first they have no intention of returning your call, over time their curiosity will continue to grow and soon they will not be able to control the urge to find out what the heck you are talking about.
