5 Signs Your Ex Wants You Back
Ever since your relationship headed south, you’ve been miserable. Then came the breakup, which just made a bad situation worse. But there is the kicker – your ex seems to be sending you some mixed signals that make it difficult for you to determine how they feel about you.
If you want to know some of the signs your ex wants you back, you are going to be looking for both obvious and subtle signs.
You must first make sure you are over your hurt and anguish over the breakup, though, otherwise, the obvious signs that your ex wants you back are likely to go right over your head.
Read on for some of the most obvious or common signs, and determine once and for all how they feel about you.
They Ask About You
If you hear through that proverbial grapevine that your ex is asking about you to your mutual friends, this is often a sign that they want you back.
After a breakup, it can be hard to come directly to you, as they aren’t entirely sure how you are feeling and how receptive you are going to be to their efforts at contact.
By asking your friends about you, they can get vital information – such as if you are still interested or if you are seeing someone else – and this may give them the confidence to eventually, talk to you directly again.
You “Just Happen” to Run Into Them At Your Favorite Places
We all have our favorite places – those stores we haunt, our favorite eateries, or even a local trail we like to hit for a walk with our dog. Your ex is going to know exactly where those places are.
If you keep bumping into them while you are out and about, there is a good chance that this isn’t a coincidence. They know that these are the places you frequent, and if they really want to avoid you, they would avoid those places as well.
They Still Keep in Touch
Sometimes, which can be really confusing for the “dumpee”, our exes don’t break off contact completely. If they still call you on a regular basis, just to chat, this is a good sign that they are still very much interested in you.
They want to know the daily happenings in your life, and you became a fixture in theirs. By maintaining the routine of continued contact, they are showing that they are not ready to let go.
They are unwilling to give up the contact that they had with you on a daily basis and may even continue to call you as normal from the very get-go of the split. This is a sign that the split was made in haste, and against the better judgment of your ex, and they are trying to at least maintain contact.
They Try to Make Physical Contact, Even If Incidental
If you see your ex on a regular basis and it seems that they make extra effort to touch you, even in incidental ways, this is a huge sign that they want you back.
They are making every effort at having physical contact, even if they are trying to hide the fact that this is what they are doing. This shows that your ex still, very much, desires to be close with you.
They Talk About Positive Memories of the Past
One of the biggest signs that your ex wants you back and isn’t over you by a long shot is if they make constant references to the past. Perhaps they spend a lot of time talking about how much fun you guys had together, or they like to take walks to “memory lane”.
This is a sign that not only are you always on their mind, but that they remember how much fun you had together.
If pretty much all their talk of the past involves you, and it is all positive, then they see the time that you were in their life as a good one. This tendency to reminisce shows a feeling of regret and loss about your not being together any more.
It is also important that, if you do want your ex back and your split was over something silly and overblown, that you not ignore these signs and try to take it to that next level once again, before it is too late.
