Make a man regret dumping you: Being dumped
hurts for a number of reasons, the most obvious
being that this person you wanted to stay with
no longer wants you. It’s normal to want to fight
back against being dumped or just make your
now-ex feel bad. If you’ve ever been dumped,
you have probably been wondering what you
could do to get your ex back or what makes
men regret breaking up with you in the first
place. Dumper’s remorse, as I call it, is very
real. It happens to everyone who ever dumps a
Even guys who are totally sure that the girl they
left wasn’t for them feel it, and will even
question themselves if they actually did the
Want to make him regret dumping you? Use the
following things to your advantage, and it’ll
1. Get a makeover.
Khloe Kardashian’s Revenge Body show may
have been controversial, but there’s definitely a
nugget of truth to it. If guys see you looking like
a million bucks after they dump you, they’re
going to get a pang of dumper’s remorse. After
all, no guy wants to admit to dumping a girl who
turned into a 10.
2. Let him see you keep your composure.
This one is really hard to do, and trust me when
I say that even I, a relationship writer, fail at it.
As hard as it is to do, it’s also part of what
makes men regret breaking up with you and why
it’s so impressive to guys. Guys expect to see a
girl fall apart when they dump them, so if you
don’t do that, it makes them realize that maybe,
just maybe, they were the ones who lost out.
3. Get his friends on your side.
If you were always kind and sweet to him, and if
his friends knew you well, then you better
believe his friends will probably notice him
dumping you. Most people will be very aware of
how hard it is to get a good partner. They may
even ask him what the deal was if they
themselves liked you enough. His friends hold a
lot of power over him, so don’t be surprised if
they end up sparking his interest in taking you
4. Make more money than he does.
I call this the “Taylor Swift principle.” Everyone
knows that the pop singer had a bunch of guys
who treated her like sh*t, several of whom had
dumped her. She’s now a multimillionaire who
enjoys a luxury mansion, cars, and whatever her
heart desires. If you don’t think they feel
remorseful about dumping her, you’re very
5. Succeed at your work.
This typically (but not always) goes hand-in-
hand with making more money. Success is s3xy,
even for men who are too scared to date
women with their own jobs. The truth is that it
shows that you’re a winner, and people like to
6. Have your friends back you up.
This is a particularly good way to make guys
who might not have been as popular as you
wonder if they screwed up. Popularity is one of
those things that just helps every little facet of
your life, including breakups. If they see a lot of
people coming to your defense or coming to
hang out with you, their choice to leave will hurt
that much more over time.
7. Meet (and date) new people.
Once you have a breakup, you are free . As in,
you are free to mingle and meet new people.
Most guys really begin regretting their decision
to dump someone when they see
them dating others, meeting others, and just
going out and having fun. When they see you
doing that, they usually end up realizing that
they may have missed out on fun with you.
8. Cut off contact.
Going no contact is one of the most popular
suggestions for people who are going through a
breakup and want to get their ex back. Absence
really does make the heart grow fonder, and
when he realizes what life is like without you,
he’ll most likely begin rethinking his decisions.
