How To Make Your Ex Insanely Jealous

Now, with that said, let's get to the meat of the matter – how to make your ex jealous, but in a way that's good for you. No toxic games, no harmful stuff, just you making your ex realize what they've left behind. 

Let's work on the following strategy.

1. Level Up

First, it's time to level up. Ditch those unhealthy habits, hit the gym, and do whatever is necessary to improve yourself.

When one starts making positive changes in life, like improving health, quitting bad habits, or excelling in one's career, it sends a powerful message to others.

Your ex will see that you're not dwelling on the past but actively working towards self-improvement. These changes can trigger jealousy as they realize you're becoming a better version of yourself without them.

2. Up The Fun Factor

Now, second, pick up on the fun factor. Remember all those things you couldn't do as a couple? Now's the chance. Travel, try new things, and meet new people.

Going out, trying new experiences, and meeting new people demonstrate you're enjoying life without your ex. 

Your ex may feel jealous seeing you having fun and thriving socially. And it can make your ex question the decision to end the relationship.

3. Reconnect With Family And Friends

Your third step is reconnecting with lost friends and family and building a solid support network. Focus on having a blast with your new circle. 

Surrounding yourself with a supportive circle of friends and loved ones shows your ex that you have people who value and care about you. 

These changes can make them envious, especially if they see you receiving the emotional support they used to provide.

4. Prioritize Moving On

Prioritize moving on and considering dating again is your fourth consideration. 

But be honest with your intentions. Don't hurt others in the process. And avoid dating friends of your ex – that's just messy.

By responsibly dating and avoiding dating your ex's friends, you show that you're ready to move forward with your life. 

Your ex might feel jealous, wondering if they were easily replaceable or if they missed out on a chance to be with you.

5. Learn To Love Yourself

Your fifth move is to show your ex you're happy alone. Learn to love yourself, be independent, and intimidate your ex with your self-confidence.

Learning to love yourself and being self-sufficient can be incredibly attractive. Your ex may become jealous of your newfound confidence and independence, making your your ex question the decision to leave.

6. Let Go Of Special Days

Then, the sixth task in your plan is to let go of special days. 

Don't get hung up on anniversaries or holidays. Go out with friends or family instead of reaching out to your ex.

Celebrating holidays and special occasions with friends and family instead of your ex signifies that you've moved on. 

Your ex might feel left out or regretful about not being a part of your life during these occasions.

7. Pursue Your Passions

Enthusiastically pursuing your hobbies and interests is the seventh step in your overall plan. 

Focussing on your passions can be attractive and make your ex realize what they've missed out on.

Wholeheartedly immersing yourself in your hobbies and interests can be incredibly attractive and has the potential to make your ex feel a strong sense of jealousy. 

Your ex may realize what they've missed out on, regretting that they didn't fully appreciate this passionate side of you during your relationship.

8. Stop Contacting Your Ex

Finally, your eighth step is not contacting your ex at all. Embark on a strict no-contact regimen and utilize the power of silence

Seriously, resist the urge. Don't give your ex the satisfaction of thinking you're available whenever your ex pleases. 

Resisting the urge to contact your ex demonstrates emotional strength and self-respect. Your ex may wonder why you're not reaching out, leading to feelings of curiosity and jealousy.

But the elephant in the room. How can you make your ex jealous without making contact and showing how you've improved? 

Here's the answer. You're creating mystery by cutting off contact after the breakup. 

When your ex wonders why you're not reaching out, your ex will start poking around, trying to find out more. They'll check up on you because their pride and curiosity demand it.  

And when they do, they'll notice these positive changes. 

They may feel a sense of regret or jealousy as they see you thriving independently and enjoying life without them and wonder whether they underestimated you.

Take Charge Of Your Life's Narrative

So now you have a recipe to make your ex wish they hadn't let you go - all without you saying a word to them.

But here's the real magic – when you follow these steps, you're not just making your ex jealous. You're taking charge of your life's narrative.

You're becoming the best version of yourself. 

A Note On Self-Care After A Breakup

Sometimes, after a breakup, people rush into strategies to make their ex jealous without taking the time to process their emotions and move on. 

So, in addition to the steps mentioned, taking time for self-reflection, therapy, or self-care can be incredibly beneficial. 

It'll not only help make your ex jealous but also in finding true happiness and personal growth.
