Paragraphs to Get Your Ex to Want You Back

A reader emailed the other day and said, “Hey Ryan, how do I get my ex to come back?” Well, I told him that sometimes, saying sorry is some of the best medicine to use. If you want example paragraphs to get your ex to want you back—then you’ve come to the right resource.

A study by Science Reports shows that there’s evidence to suggest saying “sorry” promotes forgiveness and communication in a relationship (sounds logical!). My recommendation is to say you’re sorry to the person you want back. And see how it goes.

My experience with this…

It’s really important that you take a look at the relationship you want back. If it’s a narcissistic relationship, there’s a chance that you’re just desiring the person back to create more hurt in your life. This confusion can be misleading. And confused as “love.”

If the two of you had a healthy relationship, then there’s a chance that saying sorry could lead to something really good. Use your own discretion with this. Or seek the help of a licensed therapist to work through your feelings before you take action.

  1. Every night I remember you. I remember the warmth of your arms and the affection with which you would watch over me until I went to sleep. I remember how you woke me up with a smile and a cup of tea. Those were wonderful times and I always hope the great times could come back.
  2. They say girls never accept their mistakes, it is not true. I know it was I who hurt you. It was a big mistake walking out on you. I should have been more patient and given you a chance to share your feelings. I know you are deeply hurt and not able to share your pain. Sorry is a small word, but I hope this word can help you deal with the pain.
  3. Life was heaven on earth, and it took just one day for life to become hell. You left me leaving behind pain and an empty heart. Probably both of us are to blame for all that went wrong. But I know I am to blame because I allowed you to go away. I regret my decision and hope I can turn the clock back.
  4. I could never imagine that this day has come. A day when you are not there in my life. A day when your reassuring presence is not with me. My friends tell me to move on, and I want to move on. But I know I cannot. If you forgive me for all the things I did to hurt you, it will help to heal me. Maybe then we can move on and see what the future has in store.

Ones for the future of you two—your ex will want you back

  1. Every night, I look at the stars. They seem to mock at me as they twinkle. They mock because we used to look at the stars together and plan our future. Now I am alone, and they laugh at me for ending up losing you. I regret hurting you and wish to let you know I am deeply sorry for all that happened.
  2. Our parting was so bitter that probably an apology won’t help. I know I am to blame for all that happened. Had I said sorry that day, maybe this would not have happened! It’s too late to say sorry, but I want to say it. I want to say it to let you know I regret the mistakes I made and the hurt I caused. Can you forgive me?
  3. I wished I had talked more. By not talking, I made a mistake and ended up losing you. It is a loss I regret and a loss that I cannot cope with. If only we could sit and talk again, we could resolve all our differences. I wish that we could make another attempt to sort things out so we put an end to the bitterness.
