What are some grand gestures you can make to win back your ex?

Cupid’s Advice: 

If you are absolutely certain that your ex is the one who you are supposed to be with, don’t let anything stop you from your happiness. Whether it is circumstance, past mistakes, or a simple misunderstanding, if the two of you are truly compatible for each other, there is no reason that can’t be possible:

1. A sincere apology can go a long way: When in doubt, start with baby steps. Words can tear people apart, but they can also bring people back together. Give your heart strings a strong tug, and tell your man how you really feel. The phrase “I’m sorry” is a good place to start, and let the rest flow. Don’t feel the need to justify every action you’ve made. Be attentive and listen to what is hurting him, and see what you can do to fix it.

2. Show that you’ve paid attention: Sometimes a big gesture is comprised of the little things. What has he been telling you all of this time that you may have overlooked? Put together a bunch of his favorite things to show that you care. Whether it’s a mash-up of his favorite music, that chocolate cake from the bakery that he can’t resist or the movie you watched together on your first date. Go out of your way to show that you’re attentive to his needs and you can give him what he is looking for.

3. Take a trip down memory lane: Sure there may have been some reasons why your relationship looked like it wouldn’t work out, but there are so many reasons that it should. Every couple has their strengths, so use yours to win back your love. Try recreating your first date, or a few tender moments you’ve been through together. Remind him of how great your were together and the feelings that you share. If you’re both adventurous, explain how this rough patch is just part of the bigger journey. If he’s more introverted, appeal to his kind and quiet qualities with a love letter.
