Breaking up is one of the most painful experiences to go through. It makes matters worse when you feel like your ex might still be interested in you after the relationship is over. Don’t jump to fast conclusions, though. Keep an eye out for these 5 signs that your ex may still love you:
#1 Inconsistent Behavior
Hot and cold behavior from your ex can be confusing. After a breakup, it usually takes some time to completely detach from your ex. That means that the lines of communication may still be open.
What you want to look for is signs that your ex isn’t sure about the decision to break. This will probably look like days filled with loving attention in between days when they treat you like you don’t exist. Don’t engage in this game as it will just add more salt to your wound.
#2 Wants Your Jealousy
If you see that your ex is spending time or flirting with other women around you, then you should ask yourself if they want you to be jealous. This happens a lot shortly after breakups and is a clear sign that your ex still has romantic feelings towards you.
#3 Contacts You By Himself
If you asked your ex not to contact you after the breakup, but they do anyway, that is a good indication that they’re not over you and what was between you. Cutting off all communication with a person you were close to is difficult, but maintain your boundaries and remind your ex of your wishes, if they cross the line you set. Spend your energy focusing on your own well-being.
#4 Emotional Revelations
Has your ex drunk-dialed you after your breakup? If so, they’ve probably had a bunch of very open things to say to you. This is a regular happening when a couple breaks up. Drinking loosens people up in general, and if your ex left things unsaid during your time together, they may want to share them with you in the aftermath of your love affair.
Take what your ex says with a grain of salt since they waited until you broke up to tell you these things.
#5 Strong Reactions
If you don’t have feelings for another person, you’re likely to simply be indifferent to who they are and what they do. When you notice that your ex still has strong emotional reactions to you, whether they are positive or negative, it is a strong indication that they still love you, even if the love they feel is complicated.
After you break up with someone, it’s important to clear your mind and decide what you really want. If your ex approaches you with signs that they still love you, be ready to react in the way that is best for you.
