It depends on the woman and the reason for the break up.

Here are 5 examples of how a woman can react after breaking up with a man:

1. She misses him after a week because she still loves him and feels enough attraction for him to not want to let go

Sometimes a couple might get into a bit of a rut in their relationship (e.g. things become a bit boring and predictable, they no longer go out as often as they used to at the beginning of their relationship, the sex becomes formulaic).

When that happens, a woman might stop focusing on all the good things about her guy that she likes (e.g. he’s got a great sense of humor, he is kind and honest, he treats her with love and respect) and she instead begins to nitpick about the minor things that irritate her (e.g. he forgets to put the cap back on the toothpaste, he isn’t as romantic as some of her friends’ boyfriends, he forgets to call her if he’s going to be late from work).

She may then start thinking things like, “I don’t know if I really love him anymore. What if I’m just sticking around in this relationship because it’s comfortable? Could I be stopping myself from finding my ideal match? I don’t want to wake up one day and find that I’m with the wrong man.”

This kind of thinking may then lead to her breaking up with her guy.

However, after a week of space where she doesn’t interact with her ex at all, she may realize that she made a mistake and regret her decision to break up.

When that happens, she will likely begin thinking things like, “What have I done? How could I let such a great guy go? If I’ve lost him because of my stupidity, I’ll never forgive myself!”

She may then contact him and say something like, “I think I made a big mistake by breaking up with you,” or “I realize that I still care for you. How about we give our relationship another try?”

Yet, here’s the thing…

Not all women will make the first move with an ex, even if they do miss him and want him back.

This is why, if you want your ex back, don’t wait around hoping she will miss you and contact you.

Instead, give her a week of space to miss you and then contact her, preferably over the phone or in person, reactivate her feelings for you (e.g. by making her laugh and smile, making her feel like a real woman around you, showing her you’re a better man than you were before the break up) and get her back.

Don’t wait around wondering, “How long does it take for a woman to miss her ex?” and risk losing her because you wait too long for her to hopefully contact you and want you back.

Make her want you back now.

Another example of how a woman can react after breaking up with a man is…

2. She never misses him because her feelings were destroyed and he didn’t ever contact her to reactivate them

In most cases, a woman will break up with a guy as a last resort.

In other words, she will usually give him several chances to change and improve and finally, if he doesn’t take any notice of her unhappiness, her feelings of respect, attraction and love for him will switch off and she will then break up with him.

When that happens, a woman generally feels relieved to be free from what she perceives as being a miserable, doomed relationship.

So, rather than sit around feeling sad, depressed and missing her ex, she will likely focus instead on moving on with her life by going out with friends, hooking up with new guys and finding herself a new relationship.

So, if your ex has disconnected from her feelings of love, respect and attraction for you, it’s not a good idea to wait around for her to start missing you, because it may never happen.

Instead, you need to interact with her and actively re-spark her feelings for you, so she does start missing you when she’s not hearing from you.

Another example of how a woman can react after breaking up with a man is…

3. She misses him, but moves on with another guy that she meets because her ex never contacts her to get her back

A very common reaction that a woman has after a break up is to feel angry with her guy for a few days and then starts missing him.

She may then start thinking things like, “If he calls me, I’m not going to push him away. Instead, I’m going to give him a chance to show me that he’s changed and see where things go from there.”

She then waits to hear from her ex so that they can work things out.

However, if he doesn’t get in touch with her after a week, she will naturally begin wondering things like, “Why isn’t he calling me? Doesn’t he care that we’ve broken up? Doesn’t he miss me at all?”

She might then decide that he’s no longer interested in having a relationship with her, so she makes an effort to move on and forget about him by finding herself a replacement man as quickly as possible.

Then, if her ex finally gets in touch with her (e.g. after a few weeks or even months), he is shocked to discover that she has moved on and is happy without him.

So, if you don’t want that to happen to you, don’t wait around hoping your ex will miss you enough to contact you.

Instead, be courageous enough to start the ex back process with her as quickly as possible.

Another example of how a woman can react after breaking up with a man is…

4. She misses him, reaches out to say hi and his response or reaction turns her off

In some cases, a woman will break up with a guy only to very quickly realize that she misses him.

So, after a few days of being apart, she might send out a feeler text (or social media message) to say “Hi,” and see if he is missing her too.

Unfortunately, in a lot of cases, the guy ends up blowing his chances with her by responding in an unattractive way.

For example: Some common reactions a guy might have are…

  • He tries to show her that he’s not needy by waiting too long to respond to her, so she assumes he’s not interested and decides to move on.
  • He gets so excited that she is contacting him that he goes overboard with her (e.g. bombarding her with texts or social media messages, talking about the relationship) and ends up turning her off by what she perceives as his desperation.
  • He replies to her in what he thinks is a cool manner to hopefully impress her and instead turns her off because he sounds too cheesy.
  • He’s cold and offish towards her, so she feels put off and cuts off all contact with him.

As a result, she may then start thinking things like, “I can’t believe I actually missed him and thought we could work things out! What a waste of my time and energy. I see now that he’s definitely not the right guy for me. I need to forget about him and focus on finding myself a real man who knows how to handle a woman like me.”

She then closes herself off even more.

If he then tries to interact with her, she gives him the cold shoulder.

He’s then left feeling confused and in some cases, even thinking things like, “Why is she being such a bitch?” or, “Why is she being so hot and cold with me?”

What he doesn’t realize is that he blew it with her by not knowing the right way to respond to her to reactivate her feelings for him and make her want him back.

Another example of how a woman can react after breaking up with a man is…

5. She misses him, but is afraid to contact him in case he rejects her

Woman afraid to contact her ex in case he rejects her

Sometimes a woman will start missing her ex after a few days apart.

Yet, rather than contact him, she doesn’t do anything because she’s likely thinking things like, “What if I call him and he rejects me? What if he tells me that he’s over me and maybe even that he’s found himself another woman? I wouldn’t be able to handle that. That’s why I’m not going to do anything. If he still cares for me, he will have to make the first move.”

This is why you can’t sit around waiting for your ex to reach out to you before you start the ex back process.

If you want her back, you need to have the balls to take the lead.

So, interact with her (on the phone and especially in person) and spark her feelings of respect, sexual attraction and love, so she wants to be your girl again.

Don’t waste anymore time waiting for her to miss you and come running back.

When guys use that approach, they usually waste a lot of time and end up losing their woman as well.

So, if you want her back, make it happen now.

She’s waiting for you.

Where Guys Go Wrong When Waiting For an Ex to Miss Them

By the way…

If your intention is to get your ex back, you need to make sure that you have the right mindset for that to happen (e.g. confident, assertive, positive).

If you go into the ex back process with the wrong mindset, you might end up delaying, or even ruining your chances of getting her back.

3 examples of the wrong mindset are:

1. Thinking that waiting is the way to get an ex back

Most guys have heard the expression, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

So, after a break up, a guy might decide that if he waits long enough, his ex will eventually start to miss him and then she will contact him so that they can get back together again.

He might then sit around for weeks, months and in some extreme cases, even years, waiting for her to get in touch so that they can resume their relationship.

Yet, that almost never happens.

Instead, if a woman doesn’t hear from her ex within a few days of breaking up, she usually assumes he’s not interested in getting back together again and she then focuses on fully getting over him and moving on.

Even if a woman does miss her ex and feels sad that he’s not contacting her, she will rarely make the first move and get in touch with him because she doesn’t want to get rejected by him.

As a result, the guy loses his chance of getting her back, all because he had the wrong mindset (i.e. he believed that waiting for an ex is the way to get her back).

This is why, if you want to get your ex back, you shouldn’t wait longer than 7 days to start the ex back process with her.

If you do wait longer than a week, you might be shocked and disappointed to find out that she has already started to move on without you and is possibly dating, or even falling in love with a new man.

Another example of the wrong mindset is…

2. Getting a text from her after a few days or weeks, but not feeling confident about what her intentions might be

Sometimes, if a woman still has some feelings for her ex, she will begin to miss him after a days or weeks of not hearing from him and she might then make the first move.

For example: A woman might send her ex a text or social media message to say, “Hi” and open the lines of communication between them.

However, he ends up not being sure if he should try to get her back and risk getting rejected or not, so he keeps his reply short and ends the conversation hoping that it will make her chase him.

It doesn’t.

A woman might risk making the first move, but if her ex doesn’t seem keen to be hearing from her, she will almost never put herself in the position where he can reject her again.

Instead, she will likely think something like, “Well, I gave it a shot and he didn’t seem interested, so I guess I need to accept that it’s truly over between us and focus on moving on.”

She then does just that, usually by going out more and opening herself up to meeting, dating and hooking up sexually with other men.

Here’s the thing…

If your ex contacts you, don’t play hard to get, because you will almost certainly end up blowing it with her.

Instead, be confident enough to use the opening she’s giving you to re-attract her, reactivate her feelings of respect and attraction for you and get her back.

Another example of the wrong mindset is…

3. Waiting so long that you lose confidence in your attractiveness to her and other women

In some cases, a guy will wait around for weeks, or even months in the hope that his ex will miss him and he can then start the ex back process with her.

Yet, the longer he waits, the more he begins to doubt his chances with her.

He then starts thinking things like, “What if she doesn’t miss me? What if she doesn’t want me back after all? What if I contact her and she tells me that she’s met someone else even better than me? Maybe she’s realized that I’m not good enough for her and that she can do better than me. It’s probably hopeless. Not only doesn’t she want me anymore, I’m sure no other woman will want me either.”

Yet, thinking like that only makes him think, act and behave in ways that are unattractive to women.

So, if he then tries to get his ex back, or meet other women, he will usually get rejected because they will all sense his lack of confidence and self worth and feel turned off by it.

Here’s the thing…

Women are attracted to confident men who believe in themselves.

Likewise, women are turned off by insecure men who doubt themselves and their value to her.

So, if you’ve been waiting too long for your ex to miss you and have been losing confidence in yourself and in your attractiveness to her as a result, you really do need to begin building your confidence back up, or else you won’t be able to re-attract your ex or any other woman for that matter.

You need to get to the point where you believe in yourself and in your value to her and other women.

When you do, not only will you be able to make your ex feel a renewed sense of respect and attraction for you, you will also be able to attract other beautiful women, if you want to.

So, don’t waste time ignoring your ex in the hope that she will miss you and come running back and end up losing your confidence as a result.

If you want her back, believe in yourself and then take action to re-attract her and make it happen now.

When you do, everything will begin to change for you.
