These signs I'm about to show you will give you a really good indication of what his true feelings are. By learning these 5 signs you will also make better decisions about whether to completely cut off your ex from your life or maybe give them another chance.
1. WHEN YOUR EX TRIES TO MAKE YOU JEALOUS
One of the most common signs that your ex is still hung up on you and not over your break-up is when they do something to make you jealous.
You might find out through a mutual friend or his social media post that he's been talking about dating someone new. And then, for some reason, he'll call you and act like it's no big deal.
Or maybe he'll try to make you think that he's interested someone else and then does a complete about-face and tells you it doesn't mean anything. This could be a way of keeping their options open while still being in your life.
2. WHEN YOUR EX LOOKS YOU IN THE EYE INTENSELY
One of the indicators that your ex is clearly still not over you is his intense eye contact. If he isn't shy about looking at you and looking you in the eye, this means he's really not ready to let you go.
He could be looking at you to gauge how you're taking the break-up or your reaction to seeing him again. Or maybe he's looking at you because he can't keep his eyes off you.
3. WHEN YOUR EX KEEPS YOU CLOSE AT ALL TIMES
One of the signs your ex is pretending to be over you but in reality, he is trying hard to get back together with you, is when he tries his best to stay close at all times. You might notice that he's always nearby when you're out with your friends or that he invites himself along to any social outing where you'll be in attendance.
They do this because they want to keep an eye on you and know about what's going on in your life. It also gives them a chance to see how much better (or worse) off you are without them.
4. WHEN YOUR EX BRINGS YOU GIFTS
Another one of the tell-tale signs that your ex is still hung up on you and not over you is when he brings gifts around for you all the time. A lot of people think it's an innocent thing to do, but it's actually quite a calculated move. One might ask - if a guy gives you a gift, does he like you or just wants something from you?
He may be trying to butter you up, or he could genuinely want you back and feel like this is the only way to make that happen.
It might seem sweet at first when your ex brings around small gifts just for fun and wants to hang out on weekends, but it can soon become suffocating, and you'll feel like he's constantly trying to make up for the lost time.
5. WHEN HE PLANS FOR THE FUTURE IN TERMS OF 'US'
If your ex is still talking about the future as if you're going to be in it together or that 'we' will do this or that, then this is a pretty clear indication that he is not over you.
He might be doing this unconciously, or he might not be aware that this is happening. But it's still a sign of some deep-seated feelings for you. Even when he acts like the breakup is no big deal, her subconscious mind knows better.
If he does all these and more, it probably means that he either wants to get back together with you, or he is only trying his best to make you feel comfortable post-break-up. They might be nervous about the situation because of what happened in your relationship before or how it ended, but they're willing to risk everything for a chance at being happy again. It's important not to brush them off too quickly even though you're not sure if it's what you want.
