We Know What You Want: Here’s How To Make Your Ex Jealous

So, here you are- arriving at this article with the full confidence that by the end of this article, you will have mastered the art of making your unfortunate ex jealous. You want to make them so jealous that they would come down to your house, with all your favorite things and will ask, plead and beg you to get back to them. You want to go Dominic Cobb on them, and introduce the idea of your happy and fulfilling life (without his/her existence) into their minds. You want the idea to cloud their every thought. Maybe you don’t even want to get him back, maybe you are a sadist who just likes to watch people suffer.

Don’t worry, the internet has your back. We have the answers to the question: How to make your ex jealous?

With the expansion of social media, keeping tabs on people you wont admit to keeping tags on is very easy. Except for Facebook, it is pretty common to have your exes on your Instagram/Snapchat. You tell yourself its not big deal, but even you have had those moments when you cant go to sleep and you end up exhaustively stalking them till the sun rises. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, we all do it. But you can hack this habit by simulating an extremely happy and exciting life on these social media platforms. You don’t even have to go to a party to make your Snapchat look like you are at a party. A normal picture with a friend can be made into a ferocious method of propagating jealousy with the help of a single flirtatious caption.

2. Make the “…” sign your best friend, while talking to them

The “…” sign is a curious invention. It can make anything you say sound mysterious. Use this to your advantage. When he inevitably texts you at 3AM at night, you don’t reply immediately. You check the message then but you don’t let him know that you have seen it. Then, the next day, make sure you have the “…” tailing off every sentence, word and letter. It might make you sound like a melodramatic movie star, but it gets the work done. The “…” are magic.

You know they are going to go up to your ex and tell him all about how completely normal you seemed after what they thought was an emotionally devastating for you. Maybe you still are trying to stop yourself from singing Enrique songs on the inside, but don’t let them know it. The news will travel through the grapevine and your simple “Hello! How are you guys! I haven’t seen you in ages!” will trigger a chain reaction in his mind which is bound to leave him with the pangs of jealousy.

4. Look and feel good

Now, you don’t need to be Einstein to figure this out. No matter what happens, there is a reason that your ex is your ex and not your present fling. If you take care of yourself then your ex will realize that you don’t need them to be happy in your life. Not only will you become more independent and self aware, you will also be making a massive statement in the jealousy game. If you can get yourself a spa and a makeover AND make your ex jealous then that is two birds with one stone. Treat yourself to things that you like. It is a win win situation.

These were some of the methods on how to make your ex jealous. If your ex sees that you have moved on, then its probably for the better because then that provides both parties with opportunities to take even worse life decisions. In the end, it sucks for everybody.
