He may deny it any time you ask, but if you notice signs that your ex is still into you, you’re most likely right. Breakups are painful and it can take some people a long time to move on from their former flames. Stay aware so that you know how to deal with the situation.

These 5 signs show that your ex still loves you:

#1. Yes and no

He can’t make up his mind about how he feels for you and he’s treating in different ways each time he sees you. Maybe one day he’s really friendly and sweet, talking about old times, and the next day he’s reminding you of the reasons he wanted your relationship to end.

This back and forth, hot and cold behavior means he’s not sure he wants to let you go.

#2. Wants you jealous

Any purposeful efforts to make you notice him with other girls are obvious signs that he wants you to be jealous. Why else would he want you to be jealousy than if he still has feelings for you? There’s no need to engage, just remain aware of what is going on.

#3. Doesn’t respect boundaries

So you told him that you wanted a clean cut, but he keeps calling you anyway? This is a clear disregard of your boundaries which comes from his ambivalence about the end of your relationship. He still feels connected to you in some ways and is having a hard time accepting the change between you.

#4. Drunk dialing

If you’re receiving calls and text from your ex while he’s drunk with confessions of feelings that have remained, be cautious. The time right after a breakup is very sensitive territory. Don’t read too much into what he says while he’s drinking. Even if he feels that way deep down, it doesn’t mean he will act on it when he’s sober.

#5. Can’t temper reactions

When love is truly over, a sense of indifference tends to sit in the spot that your feelings once occupied. So if you see that your ex has strong reactions to you, either positive or negative, it’s an indication that feelings have not disappeared yet.

Breakups can be messy and last longer than you would think. If your ex still has feelings for you, take it with a grain of salt and stick to your own feelings.
