Even if your breakup was by mutual agreement, I’m pretty sure that there’s a tiny part of you that wants to see ex crying himself to sleep at night over letting you go… Am I right? So, to help you, here are 8 things you should do to make him jealous:
#1 Post Pics of Yourself …With Hot Guys
Actually, they don’t even have to be hot. Any photos of you on Facebook with a dude that he doesn’t know will make him go crazy.
#2 Tweet About Fun Stuff
You know your life didn’t end when you split. And it doesn’t hurt for him—heck, everyone you know—to know it, too. So write about that cool concert you went to with your girls, or the hilarious thing your barista said this morning. Make it look like he’s missing out…because he is.
#3 “Set” Him Up
If he’s the type to think you’re still pining away (ugh, get over yourself, dude!), try this little mind game: The next time you see him at a party, tell him there’s a girl you think he should meet. It’ll totally screw with his head—and get across the point that you’re so over him.
#4 Show Up With a New Man
That same party? Yeah, arrive with a new guy. No matter how much he’s past your relationship, he’ll still freak over this one.
#5 Look Your Hottest
We know you already look amazing, but any improvement over what you looked like when you were dating is a great way to make him second-guess himself. So if you’ve been meaning to tone up more, hit the gym. Got split ends? Get a trim. You get the point.
#6 Ignore His News
Even if you saw it plastered all over his Facebook page for the past month, pretend not to notice the big news in his life, like a promotion or sweet new apartment. He’ll think he’s not even on your radar when you run into him three months down the road, and you “didn’t know” about his new development.
#7 Kill It at Life
Speaking of news, create your own. Score a promotion, snag a hot new job, or run a half marathon—and make sure he hears about it by telling your mutual friends.
#8 Have an Adventure
Remember that cool kayaking trip/skydiving experience/safari you’d always tried to get him to do with you? Do it. Even if he doesn’t hear about it, you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing you don’t need whatshisname to keep your life exciting.
