how do you get your ex back with reverse psychology? Well, there is no magic involved in it, but, the way it helps, makes it seem magical. You see, when you use reverse psychology after a breakup, you are actually playing mind games with your ex, and you can actually make your ex do things that you want him/her to do. Reverse psychology, just in case you are not quite sure what it is, means that you do everything just the opposite to what your ex expects you to do - simple as that. This is because your ex, who seems to think that he/she knows you so well, will find out very quickly, that you are a very different person to what he/she imagines you to be. Of course, this is a very simplified explanation of how reverse psychology actually works but, to make a long story short, it will make your ex totally confused, and it will help you to get an ex back - like magic!
