Ex boyfriend's birthday coming up? Thinking of calling him? Find out why you should (or shouldn't) call your ex on his birthday, and whether you can use such a call to get your foot back in the door of your past relationship.
So his birthday is coming up... should you call? Or is it better to ignore his birthday, even though you really are thinking about him?
In the world of ex boyfriends and girlfriends, it's not always easy to know what to do. Between text-messaging, Facebook, email, MySpace... it's hard to completely remove yourself from someone's life, even after a breakup.
So what happens when it's your ex boyfriend's birthday? Is it okay to call him, or is it an overall bad idea?
The answer of course depends on your own individual situation. If you were the one who broke up with him, you might want to steer clear of the happy birthday phone call. Your ex might still want you back, and you could be giving him false hope by dialing him up.
On the other hand, if your boyfriend is the one who dumped you, making that call could be a way back into his head again. It's a decent excuse to get back in touch, even for a moment, and to plant the seed of yourself back into the depths of his brain.
How To Make The Happy Birthday Phone Call
Before calling your ex boyfriend, understand that it needs to be quick and clean. You want to call, wish him a great day, and get off the phone before you say too much. This will avoid any awkward coversations, lame small talk, or you happening to say the wrong thing.
The good news is you've got a pretty legitimate excuse to be calling your ex. Tell him you couldn't help but notice what day it was, and that you didn't want to ignore his birthday. Wish him a happy one, and then tell your ex you're sorry, but you've really got to run.
By ending the phone call on your own terms, you're not prying into his life or talking about the breakup. You're also leaving your ex wondering that maybe, just maybe, you've got better things to do than to talk to him. This is a great thing, because it puts the idea in your ex boyfriend's head that maybe you're finally getting over him. And regardless of whether or not he seems to be ignoring you lately, this is NOT what he wants.
Getting your boyfriend back is all about timing. You need to know what to say, and especially, when you should be saying it. By drawing out a complete step by step plan, you can slowly work your way back into your ex boyfriend's life. And better yet? There are techniques you can use to get your ex to start chasing after YOU.
