“Never chase a man after a breakup; let him come after you.”

This piece of advice is something we say over and over again in the Ex Boyfriend Recovery Facebook Group.


Because it’s a mistake everyone makes and it is 100% right.

Men are biologically driven to enjoy the chase. This is why they are so frequently the pursuers in relationships while women tend to take a more passive role… at least in the beginning.

In dating, one of the most important things you can do is sit back and let him prove how interested he is in you.

Have you ever seen “He’s Just Not That Into You”? It’s based on the book by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo.

And though the title may seem a bit harsh, the lessons are sound. If a guy is interested in you he will make an effort to show you that.

There is as much of a stigma towards men as there is towards women when it comes to putting themselves out there. If women do it, they are considered desperate and crazy. But men are expected to initiate and make their interest known… though there are some crazies out there who go overboard, to be sure.

Simply put, if a guy is interested in you, he will make it painfully obvious.

After my last breakup, I was back in the dating scene for the first time in YEARS.

Seriously, the last time I was single, Tinder didn’t even exist!

I had to learn how to gauge the interest of a man very quickly. The ones who were not interested in anything with me didn’t respond right away and didn’t seem enthusiastic about getting to know me.

Let’s be real, there were only one or two of those, though.

On the other hand, the ones who were interested made it very clear.

  • They texted, sometimes an overwhelming amount.
  • They wanted to make plans.
  • And they asked questions.

Those are the signs of someone who is interested, and they’re also signs of someone who may come back after a breakup. 

And I let them chase me.

You see, if a guy really is interested, you won’t have to do much work at all. They’ll take care of it for you. All you have to do is:
  • Respond, not immediately but in a timely manner
  • Be your charming self
  • Avoid coming on too strong in your responses
It’s quite a powerful feeling, really.
So embrace it, and prepare to be chased.

What Makes A Man Come Back After A Breakup

First, we are going to start at the end. We are going to cover what it takes for a guy to admit he made a mistake in letting you get away and return to the relationship.

Men are stubborn.

It may take a lot for him to admit he was wrong and show up at your door at 4 am with his tail between his legs. But it can happen.

Part of it has to do with you, and another part of it has to do with the chase, and the push/pull theory.

The first thing that will make a man start to question his decision is No Contact.

There is nothing as powerful as the lack of you to make a man miss you. And time and space away from each other is the only thing that will accomplish that.

Do not contact him after the breakup.

Instead, go into an immediate No Contact period.

I’m not going to expand too much on thatin this article because there are already countless articles on this site that will spell out why No Contact is so necessary, and how it affects your Ex Boyfriend’s brain and emotions.

What Are Your Chances of Getting Your Ex Boyfriend Back?

Take the quiz

When Will He Start To Miss Me

I know it can be like torture waiting for your ex to reach out – all you want is for him to initiate. You find yourself asking,

“How long before he calls me after a breakup?”

“When will we get to the meetup phase?”

I know it’s tempting to push the process and try to make it go by faster. But the best thing you can do is let it all happen naturally – if you do that, he will begin to chase. It may not happen as quickly as you’d like it to, but it will happen.

It takes varying amounts of time for a guy to miss you after a breakup take place. Clichés are clichés for a reason. It does tend to be true that men and women process breakups differently.

The cliché is that women cry into a tub of ice cream and watch romantic comedies, and men go out to party and sleep with as many new women as possible, that doesn’t last forever. Women tend to process their emotions early on, while most men suppress them.

BAfter some time, women tend to begin feeling better and move on more fully, just around the time that men start realizing what they gave up. That is why moving on without moving on can be so effective.

There isn’t really an exact timeline on how long missing you will start to take. Chances are 30 days of No Contact will only start to get things moving in that direction. You’ll have some work to do before he begins to actively chase. But the changes that you start making to your life during No Contact, those will set up the important base to get your ex missing you and reaching out.

How To Make Him Chase You

We’ve established why it is important to make your ex boyfriend chase you, but we haven’t really gotten to how you can influence that decision. Through the ex recovery process, you are interacting with your ex in a number of ways – social media, texts, calls, and in-person meetups. How do you make him chase you in all of these areas?

When my friends ask me for dating advice, I always tell them to care less.

“Whoever cares less wins,”

I say. And I don’t mean that you should actually care less, but I mean you should appear to care less.

What does that mean? It basically means you can’t make the object of your desire the center of your life. Your ex needs to know that you have other things going on in your life that take priority over him. No one wants to be the center of someone’s universe – it’s way too much pressure.

Think about it – when he’s chasing, and you’re taking a passive position, you are in the position of power. You know where he stands, but are not reciprocating the same amount of effort. But how do you get there?

It begins with getting him interested in what you are doing during n by utilizing social media. You’re not reaching out to him, but he is seeing how you are slaying your each and every day inadvertently, so his curiosity will be piqued.

The next step is text messages. Don’t respond to him right away. You’re a busy woman, make him wait until you have a free moment. If you are too available, it signals desperation, which is not attractive. Don’t double text. If you don’t get a response, don’t follow up. Wait a few days and try again.

Now when it comes to texting, and when it comes to meetups, the Push/Pull theory will be a friend to you. When your ex starts to pull away, it may feel natural to try harder, but what you should do is stop and take a step back. This works especially well is you gnatted a lot post-breakup. When your ex realizes you are no longer pursuing, something will go off in his brain and he’ll subconsciously start to wonder why you didn’t reach out again. Did you lose interest? Did you meet someone else? The sad truth is that sometimes, what it takes to make your ex want you, is him thinking you are no longer an option.

Maintain a little mystery during conversations via phone and in person. Don’t give it all away. Maintaining an aura of secrecy can be alluring and make your ex want to spend more time with you. If he pulls back, your impulse may be to push to get him interested again but don’t follow that. Instead, keep yourself busy and find something else to occupy you. Your ex cannot be your life. No man should.

It is also normal for a man to rubberband a bit after a good interaction. If you feel like you got somewhere with him in conversation, but then get radio silence for the next few days, don’t fear. Just give him time and space and let him come back to you.

You really maintain so much more control over the situation if you can make sure to curb your impulses and let him initiate. As an experiment with an ex, I once went a full month without initiating, just to see the results. Sure, we went without talking for a day or two here or there, but we actually ended up talking almost every day – with him beginning every conversation. He wants to chase – he’s biologically built to do it. And you’ll feel better and more confident on your journey if you take a step back and let him chase you, too.

Tying It All Together

As creepy as it sounds, men are biologically built to chase, to hunt. And we, as women, are built to be hunted. Keep in mind that you don’t have to be super sweet and available to a man to chase after you. In fact, feigning disinterest can be a very powerful tool. Hell, in season 6 of Buffy, she is terribly cruel to Spike, but it doesn’t make him love her any less:

Spike: Come on. I can feel it, Slayer. You know you wanna dance.

Buffy: Say it’s true. Say I do want to. It wouldn’t be you, Spike. It would never be you. You’re beneath me.

-Buffy the Vampire Slayer, “Fool For Love”

Her words hurt him, but he still ends the episode holding her. I’m not saying to be outright cruel to your ex. But don’t be too available. Let him come after you. Engage is some push/pull.

Men don’t want a woman who will make him her world. They want a woman who has a life and other interests outside of him. And you should want that for yourself, too.

What Are Your Chances of Getting Your Ex Boyfriend Back?

Take the quiz

As tempting as it may be to go after your ex boyfriend during the process, take a step back and re-evaluate. Go out with friends, take a bubble bath, focus on work. Essentially, focus on anything that makes your life better and has nothing to do with you rex and I can almost guarantee that your phone will be lighting up with a text from him in no time.

So, now that you are all filled in on what’s going on and how to deal with it, let’s talk about your particular situation. I want to know:

  1. The details surrounding your breakup
  2. What you have done since the breakup
  3. And, after reading this article, what you think your next move should be

    My ex and I were together for a year. he is going through a divorce and told me he didn’t want to see other women but wasn’t ready for a full commitment as he is trying to find himself again after his long terrible marriage. he became distant and there was no affection so I left. I didn’t do no contact as we did not break up on bad terms however any contact has been initiated by him and I reply when I get around to it. he signed up for a dating site a couple of days after we broke up but has never actually messaged anyone on there (we have been split for 3 weeks). He has been messaging me more and more with one silly reason or another lately that feel like an excuse to talk to me. In time when he gets himself in a better position in life I may want to see if we can try again but I am not sure if he is just lonely or genuinely misses me. Any advice?

      Hi Amber, going through a divorce is said to be one of the most stressful things a person can deal with so I understand him wanting to be single to deal with that especially when its a new relationship. I would suggest that you follow a No Contact if he is just getting in touch with you for non essential things it is not really letting him feel that he is going to lose you. I also suggest that you read the Ungettable articles and work on that information in your own life, and let him see what he is giving up on if he does not act fast.

    Dating him for the second time. This time I thought it was good and we would make it…We have been seeing each other for 8wks we lived an hour apart and he had no car so we basically just texted, video and called each other. He got his car 3weeks a go and still no date. I felt as though I was wasting my time and he didnt want to be with me so I left the situation. I guess I need someone to tell me I did the right thing.

    Hi – my ex and I broke up because I caught him in a lie. We didn’t date for that long so I’m wondering if because we only dated for 3 months if the rules still apply here. I’m not sure I even want him back, but I do still miss him. Even though we only dated for a short time, we talked consistently everyday and he put in consistent effort. After catching him in the lie, he apologized and quickly said that I would never trust him again. I was surprised that instead of trying to see how he could make things work, he just decided I would not forgive him and accepted things. So maybe he doesn’t want to work things out. Since the breakup he’s sent me a few things on Instagram that he says reminded him of me… thoughts about my situation?

      Hey Kris, yes the rules still apply, but if your relationship was short you could follow a 21 day No Contact if you wanted to, but if you ended on bad terms 30 days may be best. It sounds as if he is open to talking to you in the future, so just follow the rules of NC work on yourself so that you are Ungettable and your ex realises that he has lost someone great.

    We dated 25 years ago, I reached out 8 months ago and we started seeing each other 6 months ago. He has a girlfriend but isn’t sure if he’s fully vested in this love and feels like he’s being pulled in 10 directions. He ended our relationship and I’ve been in NC for 3 weeks, he messaged after 2 weeks to see how I was. It seems to be getting harder as the days pass not easier. Uuuggghhh

    My boyfriend and I broke up recently. We’re almost going to work It out then I decided to end things because he was already talking to someone else. I saw that he FaceTimed twice yesterday and called twice back, he didn’t answer or call back. What do I do? I want to work things out before the wedding we were suppose togo to in beginning of July.

      Hi Jo, the first thing you should not do is set a deadline on yourself so that you are not trying to rush the process, you need to start with No Contact and work your way through the program.

    I’ve been seeing this guy for 2 years. It started off as just a hookup 1 time maybe two time a week or 1 time in 3 weeks. It was never consistent. After the first year it became a little more. Still hooking up but around this time we’ve gotten to know each other more and more built a friendship. Now I’m reaching in the second year and we became extremely close seeing each other daily talking everyday but no commitment. I have the strongest feeling for him and I love him. He doesn’t want anything serious with me still and now he’s even pulling away. I kept on asking and asking him why, why are we going backwards. And i feel I pushed him away. The other night I wanted to see him and he just simply said i” can’t” this is after a week of not being intimate or doing anything. I had questions so there I go asking away. And finally he just blew up and told me all these awful things about me. You’re so demanding, you’re such a distraction, do something else without me, I couldn’t believe him. I finally said are you talking to someone else he said no and that he didn’t want to talk to me anymore either. I begged why and if that’s what he wanted. Now he’s not responding at all and I feel like my world is crashing. I don’t even know what to do at this point. I don’t want to lose him

      Hey Nicole, so you would go back into a No Contact, but this time follow the rules of limited NC where you would only speak to him about baby. While its normal to feel all those emotions just keep doing what is best for you and baby right now

    We were together over a decade, from a young age and share children.

    How do I make this work when I have to have contact surrounding the children? They are very small and I have to be around him for him to see the youngest as he is breast fed.

    I was with my boyfriend for 6 months. We have a long distance relationship. The covid thing has made seeing each other hard, which has brought up his issues of the distance. It’s been an issue before, and I just give him space and he comes back within a few days. He is mostly the initiator for calling, and I was sure he was choosing this even tho it was hard.
    Two weeks ago we had a hick-up on communication, and this caused an argument. We were both in the wrong because he called but I never received the call (he always ft me, and I live in Hawaii, so many times I don’t get good service). He text me he was tired and was going to bed, but would call me the next day. I implied that as him not wanting to talk, so I let it be. In the morning he text me to check on me, and I shared my disappointment of not getting the call. His response was clear he had and he was upset, but it caused a major ripple effect. He got upset and then said he was confused. We went four days without connecting with me and when we did (that time initiated by me), I shared that although this is hard, good things come from hard work. He shared he didn’t understand why he’s confused, and that he was nervous of me coming out if things didn’t work out.
    I took a couple days sitting on that (and not hearing from him), and I decided it best for me not to come. I told him that this decision was hard, but I’ve heard how he’s feeling and didn’t want to come with hopeful expectations and end up getting hurt. I encouraged him to take time to figure out what he really wants, because his happiness was most important to me and that I didn’t want to be with someone who wasn’t 100% about being with me. It really has been up and down, and hard for me, he comes from past hurts (who doesn’t), so he’s super guarded and I think maybe doesn’t fully trust me because of his past.
    He responded apologizing for his confusion and he isn’t sure what’s going on. He said he’s having a spiritual and mental battle, but he knows no matter what God is In control. He also said he was hoping for a reset over the weekend away (he was going to see his new grandson), and that he cares about my heart and understands how I’m feeling. He said he’d like to remain friends and even come see me with her daughter within the next month if I was ok with that. He said that he knows if we are meant to be God will show us both and make a way.
    I did not respond to his text, because mostly I was a hot mess, but also felt he implied he’d reach out. I didn’t feel he needed the answer in that moment to come or not.
    We are a week out from that text, and I’ve heard nothing. I haven’t contacted him, but am now fearing me not saying anything has upset him. I know I shouldn’t (and I won’t) reach out to him. I’m just overwhelmed wondering if we can make this work, and if he really cared.
    I am with him, because although the distance really is hard, he is an amazing person. We click so good when we are together. Normally I wouldn’t go a month without us seeing each other, but being in Hawaii, leaving and coming means a mediatory 14 day Quarantine at home. I am a public figure, and run a non-profit, and also do a lot in the community, so I couldn’t just come without organizing a ton to make it happen. I saw him last, two months ago, and so I know that’s hard for a relationship. I just need some sound advice to keep me moving forward and trusting that if he cares he’ll reach out.

    I’d been dating this guy about once a week (but texting every other day) for 2 months and right around the time we started to get more serious, he started to show less interest over text and less asking to see me. A couple weeks later I brought up my concerns and he shared with me that he was also seeing someone else and that things got serious with both of us around the same time and that he’s been confused because he likes us both equally. I told him he needed space to figure out what he wants because I need to be with someone who invests in me and I said I needed to focus on a project at work anyway… but we said we would figure out what to do after that. A couple weeks later I texted him to let him know my project was over. We had a very little bit of small talk over text the following days and I haven’t heard from him since (it’s been about a week). We met online so he has no way to see what I’m up to in my life and I’m afraid he’s getting closer to her in he mean time. Should I go back to no contact and wait for him to reach out? Should I send a text saying I’m done waiting and then go into NC?

      Hey Sammie, so I would suggest that you work on the Holy Trinity and being Ungettable, and also take a look at the being there method. If he is still spending time with the other women when he is trying to make a decision you need to be sure that you do not react emotionally you just need to remain in control and show him you know your worth and it isn’t second place.

    My ex picked a fight out of nowhere, packed up and left me a week ago. He’s not been in contact at all and blocked me on social media. I feel lost and depressed since he left. I broke down and mailed him a letter yesterday. I want him back but know he needs space right now. I just don’t know how to move forward and if he’s not coming back, feel like I at least deserve some explanation or type of closure.

    Hi, i’ve just read your article and thought i will drop you a line.

    I’ve been with my boyfriend for nearly three years (engaged for just over a year).

    In the current situation, under the lockdown, we live apart. We never lived together, the plan was to move in after our wedding in July this year.

    About a week ago, we had an argument over text messages. For couple of weeks i felt that something has shifted, like he didn’t have the time to speak to me anymore or like he wasn’t really there when he called me. So I’ve mentioned to him after our argument and his response was that for a week or so he felt like something is missing, that we going through the motion. And as we chat he said that he doesn’t know if he still loves me although he would tell me and text me every day that he loved me.

    I was very confused:this is a man who told me every day how much he loved me, that he felt lucky to have had found me (we said to each other), that he never felt this way for anyone before. We had plans to get pregnant in summer after the wedding, hr even picked up our child’s name. During our relationship he was the one contacting more than i would do, texting me every morning, during the day, calling me.

    He started a new job over a month ago which he really enjoys, and told me that filled up a big void in his life.

    So he asked me to give him some time to figure out what’s happening with him. I’ve agreed to it, our last contact was last Wednesday, just a breath text message.

    I don’t want to contact him, and i hope i will stay strong. I just don’t know what to do at the moment. I live on my own and the fact that he hasn’t checked on me to see if im ok, its really hard to comprehend. He is like a total different person.

    I look forward to your thoughts.

      Hi there Melania, so I would say that if he is asking for space that he is questioning what he wants from the relationship that you need to allow him that time. Where you make it clear you are not sat at home waiting to hear from him. If he then ends the relationship you go into a full NC for 30 days.

    My ex dumped me and said he was unsure about the relationship and wasn’t in love. He lives in NYC and I’m in Chicago now. It’s been 3 weeks since we split, we were together for 1 year. The last thing I did was apologise for certain things, told him I loved him and that he should reach out when he’s ready.

    Have I messed this up completely or is there still a chance he could come back? We have gone into no contact for the past week. Reading your post it seems like I screwed this one up by saying all those things in the end. Please reply.

    My situation isn’t so much about a. Ex but about a guy I was dating. We been dating for two months, talked every night on face time and text here and there throughout the day. I am not going to lie, but I started acting very needy and insecure. I started double texting him questioning him and at sometimes I would even start an argument for no reason. Eventually this guy had it with me and called it off. We talked on the phone and somehow I persuade you give us another chance. I apologized for my immature behavior and I told him that I’m really not like that, that I’ve been acting off because I tend to get scared due to previous failure relationships. He agreed for us to start fresh. However, he is distant still and I’m not sure how to proceed. Should I wait and let him come to me? I don’t want to suffocate him again. Please advised!

    We have been together for 2,5 years. The last 6 months were long distance because I moved to another country for an internship. He broke up with me in the begging of March over skype. He said he is not sure if he can give me what I want and that we are very different and he felt he does more compromises. Middle of March I flew to him to talk in person and take my things. Then he said that breaking up was my decision and that he accepts me now as a friend even though he said in the last skype that he likes me. I did 30 days no contact and then reached out to him. He answers, however, does not ask anything back. We are now in different countries. Not sure if I should reach out again and try to have a positive conversation with him or try to talk to him because I feel there was a lot of miscommunication between us when breaking up.

      Hi Megan I would suggest that you keep having small positive talks and picking up the momentum gradually – I also would suggest that you avoid having any emotional conversations just allow it to build up slowly to him investing more into talking to you

    We split 3 weeks agreed to meet for lunch I went to see him he been full on with another woman texts etc and sex sites. Deleted all messages cause I wanted to read them. Now I dont know if I have any trust at all to be together. He says I am the only woman he wants he sorry…..I am confused as to if I can be with someone who moves on within days and now wants me back..hiding texts, calls, what’s he doing on pc. Can I trust him. Messed my head up.

      Hey Amy, I am sorry but I can not tell you if you can trust him or not all you can do is set boundaries in your relationship so that he is not doing those things if you are not around or behind your back

      Hi Neha, so you need to complete your NC for 30 days and then start your texting phase reaching out and having short positive conversations with your ex about things you know he would be interested in talking about. Then you need to work your Holy Trinity and being Ungettable.

    December 12th my boyfriend broke up with me after 9 months of being together. His reason was he just wasn’t happy. I wouldn’t say our relationship was toxic. Now looking at it, it was our communication. He also has some things that he was dealing with internally and mentally that I think effected our relationship when we started having problems and I think got to a point for him where he couldn’t take it and didn’t know what to do. I would say that the breakup didn’t end in us fighting or arguing. It was a mature thing and he talked to me and told me that’s what he wanted. I know he still deeply loves me. Since the night of the breakup I went straight to no contact. It has not been an easy thing. It’s been hard but then April 1st he finally reached out to me after 4 months of him not reaching out. April 12th will be officially 4 months since the breakup. But it felt soo good to finally see his name pop up on my phone. He actually called me instead and not txted. I would say I handled it pretty well. He asked how I was doing. He said he knows that he hadn’t reached out to me since everything. He said he wanted to call me and see how I was doing and how I have been. He told me that even though we may not be together that he still wants the best for me and that he wants to see me succeed in everything that I do and he’s routing for me. I had asked him how he was doing. At first he said good and then he said not good. I asked why he says that and he said he didn’t really want to talk about it. Then before we hung up he did say there are things that he’s going through that are complex and he doesn’t want to get into and talk about it but he says he know he will get through it. I said it’s totally fine and I understand. I love him soo much. I would love for us to try again that’s why I am still sticking with no contact and just doing my own thing and making him come to me. I feel like we are meant to be but it was just wrong timing for us. Don’t know when he will reach out again.
