In this video, Breakup expert Brad Browning talks about how you can use a psychological tactic known as the clean slate text in order to get your ex back.
Stop begging and pleading.. And wipe the slate clean.
The first thing that you need to do, before sending the text, is to stop any contact with your ex that is begging and pleading based ( a total turn off by the way), and wipe the slate clean. This means take some time out from speaking to your ex, work on yourself, and allow your ex time to miss you. Then, send one of the 3 texts that Brad talks about, in order to ‘wipe the slate clean’ and have your ex wanting you back again.
Send one of these 3 texts to your ex.
The fresh start : ‘Hey I have to apologize for acting so irrationally over the past few days. I feel a lot better about myself right now and I’m off to make a fresh start’.
Why this works: You stop making excuses, and take responsibility for your actions. This shows maturity and confidence and your ex will find this attractive. He will also feel that you are ‘moving on’. This shifts the position of power.
The Good Breakup: ‘I have to apologize for my behavior over the last few days, I was super emotional and I wasn’t myself. I know that this breakup is a good thing in the long run.’
Why this works: It goes one step further than the first text and it aggressively shows your ex that you are ready to move on, and that you think breaking up was the right idea. You have taken responsibility and are moving on.. Does he really want you to?
The Good Breakup 2: ‘I’m sorry, I’ve been going through a lot of personal things that I didn’t really tell you about and that’s why i’ve been acting this way. I know I have to stop, and I’m working on myself. You won’t be hearing from me for a little while’.
Why this works: Your ex will stop thinking that you are crazy (if you have been over the top with your reaction to the breakup this one works well), and will think there is a one off reason as to why you behaved this way. This will put him back in a neutral emotional state and you can then take some time out with no contact (at least 30 days) before you try and speak to him again.
All 3 of these texts are great at wiping the slate clean, and that is what you want to do before you take some time away from contacting your ex. This will put him back into an emotionally neutral state, so that he then has time to miss you… and after 30 days you can then initiate contact again.
