Breakups are bad. They are one of the most painful things that you could go through. But there is always a phase after the breakup where you wonder if your ex still loves you and wants to get back together. You think about scenarios where your ex is probably missing you like you are, and the separation is getting unbearable by the day.
You think about a thousand excuses to talk to your ex and find out, but you are not sure if they are feeling the same way as you. There might be mixed signals coming your way but its hard to tell for sure if there is a desire from the other side to get back together.
Well, there are some ways you can determine whether your ex misses you and wants to get back together with you. Here are some signs to look out for!
- They go on to date someone who’s your total opposite
According to a research, an ex tries to hide the pain of a breakup by jumping into a rebound relationship, and with someone who is the total opposite of your previous partner. If your ex has jumped into a rebound with a person who is your total opposite, then they might be just trying to hide their pain by getting into something that is obviously meaningless to them but they are doing it in attempts to get over you.
- They don’t return your things
A relationship includes countless gifts as memories. If your ex is not returning your things that they have from your relationship, then maybe they are trying not to lose touch and want to keep coming back to you, using the gifts as an excuse. This means that they are not serious about the breakup and definitely do not want to move on.
- They are becoming better people
You maybe had a bad fight with your ex regarding a habit you couldn’t deal with or something they did wrong. If your ex is trying to be a better person since the breakup and is trying to show you that they are changing, then they realize their mistake and are desperately missing you and want you back.
- They are still in touch
If your ex has cut you off completely, blocking you from all kinds of communication, then they are very serious about moving on. But if they are still in touch with you and text you everyday, asking you how you are keeping, then they don’t want to be without you and miss you too much to let you go completely. This would mean your ex might want to get back with you.
