If you are trying to make your ex boyfriend jealous, you have come to the right place.
At least, I can intercept you before you either do permanent and irreparable damage to your relationship (worst case scenario) or simply wasted your time doing something that will not help you get your ex back.
Seriously, what are you thinking? What are you trying to accomplish?
I am going to make an assumption here. You are either:
1) Trying to take revenge and get back at your ex.
2) Trying to get him back.
A little bit of both.
If You Are Trying To Get Back At Your Ex
I hope I can convince you to just let it go. Just forget about it.
After all, you are not going to accomplish anything meaningful by taking revenge. So why waste your precious time and energy on that?
Think of it this way. If a man makes you feel so much hatred that you have to get back at him, then he is probably a jerk.
If he is really a jerk, then you shouldn’t allow him to take up any more of your time. The best way to get revenge is to be the best woman you can be, lead a meaningful life and be happy so that he will regret dumping you.
Of course, you are really doing it for yourself rather than to make him regret breaking up with you.
I believe you are a bigger woman than that, aren’t you? You can forgive and let go right?
If You Are Trying To Get Your Ex Back
Then it is even more important that you don’t try to use jealousy to get him back.
Well, for several reasons.
1. It Only Works On Men With Low Self Esteem
In general, men who are emotionally mature and secure in themselves do not like to get involved in jealousy or any types of mind games.
Only those with low self esteem are likely to fall for your trick.
So if you are wondering whether jealousy can really help you get your ex back, here is the answer.
Yes, jealousy can work sometimes, especially if your ex boyfriend lacks emotional maturity and has low self esteem.
And that brings us to the next point.
2. It Doesn’t Get To The Root of the Problem
Even if you do manage to get your ex boyfriend back using jealousy, the relationship is probably not going to last.
Before you know it, he is going to leave you again.
Because jealousy doesn’t get to the root of the problem.
Once he get back together with you, he will realize that nothing has changed.
So what is the logical conclusion?
Well, he will want to break up with you again and you end up in an on-again off-again relationship.
3. The Motivation Is Wrong
And let’s not forget that he is getting back together with you for the wrong reason.
When you use jealousy on your ex boyfriend and it “works”, he is simply trying to salvage his fragile ego.
He just can’t stand to lose to another man. Once he won the game (managed to get you back), his fragile ego is satisfied.
As mentioned earlier, jealousy doesn’t get to the root of the problem. Therefore, he no longer has a reason to stay in the relationship.
4. It Can Backfire On You
Perhaps you decided to make your ex boyfriend jealous on Facebook by posting a photo of you with another guy.
Before you go ahead and do that, make sure you are aware of the consequences.
Maybe your ex boyfriend is trying to get back together with you initially. However, when he sees the photo, he thought you have moved on. Therefore, he decided that it’s time for him to move on too.
Or maybe he is really jealous. Hence, he decided to take a photo with another girl and post it on Facebook too. Now, it becomes a tug of war.
Your initial intention is to draw him closer. Instead, you pushed him further away. It backfires on you big time.
5. You May End Up Hurting Another Person
Maybe you decided to date another person or even get into a rebound relationship to make your ex jealous.
This can really hurt an innocent third party. You are not going to do that right?
6. It Is Really Pathetic
I think it is really pathetic if you have to resort to jealousy in order to get your ex back.
Put it this way.
Life is already challenging enough without all these nonsense.
Relationship is supposed to be a safe haven where you can take refuge in after a long and tiring day, be loved, get emotional support and recharge your energy so that you are ready to get out and take on the world again.
Imagine that you already have a very stressful job where you constantly have to plot and scheme in order to survive the office politics.
After that, you still have to think of ways to keep your ex boyfriend jealous so that he will continue to stay with you.
Alright, maybe you are still young. So you have a lot of energy to spare.
But what are going to do when you are in your seventies or eighties?
Will you still have the energy to play with jealousy or any kind of mind games?
Seriously, what kind of relationship is that?
Don’t you think it is really pathetic?
I don’t know about you. But I would rather be single than to be in that kind of relationship.
The Decision Is Completely Yours
Hopefully, after reading this article, you will not try to use any type of mind games to get your ex back.
Of course, it is totally up to you. If you still decide to do so, I am not going to stop you. Not that I can anyway.
At the end of the day, it is your own relationship. So go ahead and do whatever you want.
The purpose of writing this article is just to let you know the possible consequences so that you can make an informed decision.
I do hope you will at least think twice before you use jealousy on your ex.
