Breakup Reversed goes into this technique in tremendous detail, and shows you exactly what to do and say in order to get your ex chasing you... Calling to say hello only goes so far, and you can usually tell when your ex is just being friendly or when he's trying to see what you're up to.
Whenever your ex keeps the lines of communication open with you after breaking up, it's always a good sign.Most exboyfriends who are already thinking of moving on will want to break ties with you as soon as possible, and those no longer interested in you will have even less of a desire to stay in touch.Until then, any attempts at following your 'situation' made by your ex boyfriend should be taken as positive signs that he's still interested.Knowing what to say when your ex calls you on the phone isn't always easy.That way you can prepare for what you'll say when you do call him back, which you shouldn't do right away, either.
This gives your ex the impression that you've got bigger and better things going on in your life.
It's safe and comforting for him to know where you are and what you're doing while he plays the field and tries to see what else is out there.
To prevent him from hooking up with another girl and dating someone new, you should play the friend.
Coming right out and asking you this will probably leave him a little too vulnerable, so he'll try to feel out your dating status in other ways.
One of the more common approaches is to be unnecessarily open about his own situation.
If he's returning your emails and phone calls that's good, but if he's the one initiating these types of communication it's an even bigger sign that your ex wants you back.
