As for him? His reactions might be just as confusing as yours. One minute he calls you to tell you that he misses you, the next he posts a picture of himself with a hottie on social media. So, what are you to think? Does he still have feelings for you or not?

Fortunately, we’ve combined our breakup experiences and have identified 5 secret tells that can shed some light on your ex’s residual feelings.

#1. Hot and cold behavior

His confusing behavior shows just that: he is confused. He has trouble reconciling the love he feels for you with the fact that your relationship doesn’t work. So, until he figures out his own feelings, cut him some slack if he calls you late at night to talk and then ignores you for a week.

#2. Trying to make you jealous

If he’s constantly posting pictures of himself with hot girls on social media or flirting with other women in front of you, he is most likely still in love with you. He doesn’t necessarily want you back, but he can’t let you go either. He’s trying to make you jealous, so you’d want him, and regret having broken up with him.

If this happens, the only way to put an end to it is to ignore it and look to your own happiness. Don’t get tangled up in his game. It will only prolong your suffering.

#3. Reaching out even though you asked him not to

Staying in touch after a breakup is a bad idea. The constant contact will not allow you to move on with your life. The fact that he keeps calling you most likely means that he is still in love with you and does not wish to break things off. Tip: don’t engage and don’t overanalyze his texts. It’s only an emotional trap.

#4. Drunk dialing

Don’t fall into the trap of believing drunken emotional confessions. Alcohol might bring about some truth, but it also lowers inhibitions and heightens emotion. So, what he says while drunk is only valid while he is drunk. He won’t remember a thing when he wakes up tomorrow.

#5. Showing strong emotions when it comes to you

Contrary to popular belief, the opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. So, when he’s lashing out at you it means that he’s hurt. Only love can do that. If he didn’t still have feeling for you, he would be “whatever.” The best way to handle such a situation, is to give him space. After all, time heals all wounds.
