I assume that for you to want your boyfriend back you must have already ended the affair you had with your ex-lover and realized that it is your ex boyfriend who is the one you really need in your life.
So, you probably sincerely apologized to your ex almost begging him to take you back.
Is he willing to give you a second chance? He will definitely not going to say it out loud as you have hurt him deeply.
Cheating on him in the first place means you betrayed his trust and he took a punch on his self-esteem.
He will not take you back easily.
You will need to reassure him and make him understand that when he will be back with you, he will be the only one that you will love and cherish.
It will not be easy.
Only telling him a million times that you love him will not change anything as you were telling him you loved him before you cheated too.
It is only by taking appropriate actions that will make up for what you did.
Show him that you are willing to do everything in your power to save the broken relationship.
Talk about your betrayal Your man will have a hard time expressing what he really feels about this situation.
He may be aware that you really want to get back with him but since you have hurt his ego and manhood he will act like he do not want to get back.
You must keep at what you are doing and do not discourage at any moment, show him that you are persistent and fighting hard to get back together.
Do not hesitate to tell him who you cheated him with and why.
He will want to know the details; it will be hard for you but tell him everything.
It is only then that he will start trusting you again.
Do not take the word trust too lightly.
It will take a lot of time for him to trust you again.
Be patient! It is normal to want to protect the person you cheated your ex with thinking your ex boyfriend my hurt him.
Make him promise not to do anything before you give the name of the guy.
Make him understand why you have decided to cheat, that it was YOUR mistake.
