In trying to figure out when to contact your ex boyfriend, you need a level head and a clear mind. Right after he dumps you is never a good time to get back in touch with your ex. The good news? Waiting here alone without doing a single thing can go miles and miles toward winning your boyfriend back. The bad news? This is also when you’re most likely to pick up the phone and call or text him. You’ll feel as if doing nothing is hurting your chances at reconciliation, and with every minute that goes by you’ll feel your boyfriend slipping further and further away.


Most women who do end up picking up the phone don’t even know what to say. Is there anything specific you can tell your boyfriend in order to win him back? Should you let him know things will be different, or even promise to change? An even better question: do you even know what’s wrong with your relationship in the first place? Calling your ex without even knowing what to say to him is one of the biggest breakup mistakes you can make. If you think he wants to hear you ramble on aimlessly about how much you love and need him, or how much you’re “meant” to be together, you’re probably in for a rude awakening.
