Have you ever heard the saying, “Friends may become lovers. But lovers become friends? Never.”
I think this can be applied to breakups in a couple different ways. First, after a breakup, it’s usually better to cut all contact with your ex, rather than try and remain friends.
Remaining friends sounds like a good idea, but it usually creates more drama than it’s worth and it makes your future relationships more difficult. I mean, are you ready for all the questions from your future boyfriend or girlfriend?
“Why are you still so close to your ex?”
“Are you seeing your ex behind my back?”
“Who are you texting again? Your ex?”
“Why are you commenting on your ex’s Facebook page?”
It becomes a nightmare. And, most of the time, the drama simply isn’t worth it.
On the other hand, if you breakup, but you want your ex back, it’s important to give them time to miss you before you try to repair the relationship. Don’t make the mistake of contacting them a bunch or begging and pleading with them to take you back. And never send them these types of texts…
Got it? Ok, good. Let’s move on…
So you’ve taken some time away from your ex. You’ve got your “sh*t” together for lack of a better term. You’ve thought about the situation logically and rationally without being overwhelmed by your emotions. And you’ve decided you want your ex back.
But do they want you? That’s the big question now. Here are 6 of the most common signs your ex wants you back.
1.) If you try to text your ex back in this way, they respond positively to your messages.
2.) They ask if you are seeing other people. (This is usually a dead giveaway they are worried about losing you for good.)
3.) When you have conversations, they still flirt with you.
4.) They talk about missing you, that maybe the breakup was a mistake, and that maybe they could have done things differently.
5.) They still look at you and touch you in certain ways. This one is difficult to explain, but when you’ve been with someone for a while, you know what signs their body language gives off. For example, being able to tell they are feeling in love when they get a certain look on their face. Or that they’re turned on because of how they rub your arm in a certain way. Watch for these signals. If you’re still getting them, then it’s a good sign your ex wants you back.
6.) Finds reasons to come over or hang out all the time.
So there you have it: 6 ways to tell if your ex wants you back. There are other signs as well, but these 6 should give you a pretty good indication of what’s going on in your ex’s mind and heart.
