One of the worst predicaments that you can find yourself in when it comes to getting an ex boyfriend back is that somewhere down the road you come to the realization that he isn’t the right guy for you.

I mean, I can’t tell you how often I have woken up to an email like this from a woman,

“Chris, I ended up getting my ex boyfriend back (thank you) but after dating for a few weeks I came to the realization that he isn’t the man I want anymore. I think I made a mistake. What should I do?

Sometimes we can get what I like to call “tunnel vision” when it comes to getting an ex back which basically means you can ignore some pretty important signs telling you that he isn’t the right guy for you because you are so focused on getting your ex back.

And that’s why I brought Marni Battista in for you.


Who is Marni Battista?

Well, Marni runs the very popular website, Dating With Dignity, and she has been featured in publications like ABC, CBS, Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan and Glamour.

To say that she knows her stuff would be an understatement.

She’s an expert in the selection process of men. And the thing I really love about Marni is the fact that she opens up and tells her own story about the mistakes she’s learned along the way.

And I have to say it’s an incredible story that you can read.

But like I said, I brought her on today to talk about how YOU should be making YOUR selection process when it comes to getting your ex boyfriend back.

    I’ve been dating my ex for 2 months now. Things were going great but we have just had a huge argument which started over me inviting him out for dinner.
    I’m going to be in the city this weekend for work, and i planned on going out for dinner with a friend afterwards. I was talking to my ex today and found out he was attending a friend’s performance on that day, so we would both be in central London in the evening. I smiled and asked what time he’d be finished, so we could all go to dinner togeter, yet he dodged the question, saying it would be really late and became really defensive about the concert and his new female friend, he made while we were apart. In fact he wanted to see my male friend on facebook, before replying, and then he blew up and said he doesn’t want to meet my friend or be there if he was?! He’s never even met the guy! I’ve also said that they would get along great, haven’t been too complimentary about the other guy, and fully encouraged them to meet (he was complaining how he doesn’t really know any of my friends now). He then decided to drag all of our past history up and said it wasn’t good enough for me to cut down on the contact with my male best friend (yet all of his friends are female?). He said oh i don’t want to meet the new guy because of my ‘track record’. Which i found insulting. I’ve never cheated on him, or done anything that i wouldn’t with a female friend, yet he’s quite secretive about some of his female friends. It’s almost as though he didn’t want me around when he was out with his other female friend? He’s also ended his last message with less kisses on purpose to further make his point.
    What on earth is going on? I haven’t replied because I don’t believe i deserve to be spoken to in that way.
    Any insight or advice would be great!! x

      Our previous relationship lasted 4 years, however there were a lot of issues where i had found out he had been on dating sites, flirting with other women and meeting them in secret (he said he never slept with anyone), he also lied to my face saying he was meeting his father when he was going to another girl’s concert. When we first talked he apologized for everything that he did, but now he’s being secretive again and I’m second guessing my decision to try things again with him. Especially with how much I’ve changed over the time we’ve been apart.

      yeah, if I were you, he has to prove himself first before I go back to him

      HI Ariella,

      Well, you have a new relationship, just two months in. How long do you know him before being with him? Because it looks like he’s being shady.
