Winning your ex back takes a great deal more effort than just an apology and a bouquet of flowers. It takes more than just showing up at your ex's doorstep with your best puppy dog eyes imitation.

If winning your ex back is that important to you, nothing is impossible! Read on to find out how you can revive your relationship!

Tip # 1: Review Your Relationship.

Post-break-up, the first thing you need to do is figure out where things went awry. After all, a break-up doesn't just happen overnight (unless you're both 13-year-olds who were never really in a relationship in the first place!).

Usually, it is a result of a problem(s) that has been slowly yet steadily rotting your relationship. For example, your last fight could have been about you spending Saturday night out with your friends; but it could have really been about how you're not giving your ex enough attention or even affection.

Before you do anything rash, review your relationship and figure out whether you really want to get your ex back or not.

Tip # 2: Know What Your Ex Wants.

Winning your ex back has a lot to do with what your ex wants or needs in the first place. If your ex needs someone who is independent, then you'd better start earning your own income. You might also want to move out of your mother's house.

If your ex wants someone who is more down-to-earth, then maybe you should stop complaining about every little thing once in a while.

Once you know what your ex really wants, all that is left for you to do is to be whoever that person is. Unless of course, your ex's principles or beliefs are against your own, in which case you might want to rethink about getting your ex back.

Tip # 3: Don't Appear Desperate.

There's nothing more pitiful than a person who begs for forgiveness in such a degrading fashion. Winning your ex back doesn't have to be that way.

If you've already had the "talk," there's no need to barrage your ex with phone calls every night or show up at your ex's doorstep unexpectedly. This is the time when you make the effort to fix yourself up!

Clean your place up. Clean yourself up! There's no better time to look your best (even if you feel your worst) than when you're trying to win somebody back!

Winning your ex back can be tricky, especially if the break-up wasn't very pleasant at all in the first place. But if you're really determined to see things through, then you know that everything is worth it.
