Not every relationship ends because the two parties have fallen out of love. You may find a couple that has broken up maybe because they have different life values have different goals, and others opt to go their separate ways because they are not ready to be in a committed relationship. Well, a relationship requires a lot of hard work and input from both parties.
This is where we say love is not enough! There are other things the couple needs to do to keep the relationship thriving and solid as well. So don’t be surprised if you see your ex-boyfriend giving some hints of still wanting you. He may not be together with you, but that does not mean his love for you is over.
So what are some of the signs that he still loves you after a breakup? If you are wondering how to interpret the signs that your ex-boyfriend is giving you, we have provided some of the obvious signs that your ex still loves you. They are;
You are his friend on social media
By this, we don’t mean that you still appear on his following list, but it is how he interacts with you on social media. Does your ex still comment nice words on your uploaded pictures, does he like your pictures, captions, and so on? Well, these are a clear indication that he keeps tabs on you and still loves you.
Whatever you do excites him, and he wants to know if you still think about him. For example, he may intentionally comment on your pictures to get a response from you.
He keeps contact
in most cases, when a couple of breakups, they tend to delete each other’s communication as a way of opening a new chapter and focusing on their personal lives. Some people may even go the extra mile to block their exes just to cut communications, even in the future.
However, if your ex-boyfriend has not followed this trend and, in fact, contacts you now and then, well, this is a sign that he still thinks and misses you. An ex cannot forget you not unless you are always in his mind and he loves you.
He wants to keep a conversation with you
How was your relationship before the breakup? Were you enjoying having long conversations such that you could spend hours while chatting with your boyfriend, even on the phone? Well, if you notice that he encourages the same even after you have broken up, then it shows that he still loves and misses your long conversations.
He may initiate a conversation by texting you to say “hey” to you. Once you replay, he may continue the conversation by asking how your day has been, how school or work is, and what you are doing.
He sends you things that relate to him
Another trick or signal that an ex-boyfriend will send to you is to make sure that you keep on thinking about him and let you know that he still thinks of you by sending you relatable things. For example, he may send you a picture you took on a vacation to remind you or send you something that will always remind you of him.
Well, generally, no man can send you something that reminds you of him if he is not into you. Also, most men want their ex-girlfriends to forget about them so they can swiftly move on with new girls. But, if you find your ex wanting to remind you of him, it shows that he is not entirely over you, and he still thinks of you all the time.
He gets hurt when you ignore him
Are you still hurting and exercising no communication policy, or rather you have moved on and don’t want anything to do with him? All these are some of the reasons a woman will avoid or ignore a man they once dated. Not every woman wants to stay in a place that she was not happy or hold on to a broken relationship waiting for their ex to rebuild the relationship.
Some women move on with their lives and find other things to do other than dwelling on the finished relationship. So, if you are undergoing such changes after a broken relationship with your ex, the chances of sometimes ignoring him when he contacts you are pretty high.
On the other hand, this can be hurtful and stressful to your ex-boyfriend since he will get the impression that you have moved on with your life and don’t want him in your life. One way to know your gestures hurt him is through the tone of his texts. If he texts you in a way that shows he is angry or jealous, that is an obvious indication that he still wants to be part of your life.
He is still on good terms with your family or friends
If your breakup was impeccable and the man had established a great relationship with people close to you, he may use this as an excuse to be close to you. Most people cut ties with people related to or close to their exes when they break up. But, if he still wants you in his life, don’t be surprised if you find him at your cousin’s or friend’s birthday party.
A man who still loves and cares for you will find every excuse to be close to you and interact with you even if you are not getting back together. So, if he hears that you will be attending a friend’s party and gets an invite, he will show up just for you.
He constantly shows excitement on seeing you
How does he react when he sees you? Does he giggle, smile often, and seem to lighten up when he sees and talks to you? These are clear indications that that man still loves you. Being in your presence makes him happy, and he remembers the old good things you used to have before.
If you meet at the bar, he would want to sit close to you and enjoy some drinks with you. If you meet on the road and he is driving, he will insist on giving you a ride to have some time with you, even if it is just talking. In other words, every time he gets to see and be with you, it makes him happy and content.
He gets close and touchy with you
Is your ex-boyfriend so comfortable when you have conversions such that he is okay sitting close to you and getting touchy when he sees you? He may hold your shoulder when talking to you or hold your hand when you are saying goodbye. By saying he gets touchy does not mean sexually harassing you or touching you inappropriately, considering now you are not together. In some cases, they may do these things to see your reactions, such as spark your feelings for him, or his actions may irk you.
He remembers everything about you
Did you like taking water in a restaurant with a straw, or did you not want to leave the house without your favorite denim jacket when going out at night? It is the small things that matter, and if your ex can still remember such small details about you, he has a good memory about your life together.
Men are pretty bad at keeping the memory of their girl likes, or they ignore small details in a relationship. So, if a girl has a man who can remember the nitty-gritty details about her, and even after a breakup or fallout, the man still retains it, she will feel special.
He is often dating
A man will start to date immediately to fill the void of his girlfriend if they were close or to find the happiness that he never had with his ex. However, if you find your man is dating one too many women simultaneously, this shows he is in misery without you and is trying to find a woman like you.
A man may go on spree dating as a way of trying to get rid of the feelings that he still has for you and him wanting to forget and move on with his life. This often does not work well since it is not easy to erase someone you truly love from your life.
He is a social media pro all of a sudden
If your man was not into social media, but now that you have broken up, he posts often; this shows that he is trying to make you feel jealous. He is trying to get your attention and a reaction to seeing if you still think about him or not.
These are the easy signs that show your ex-boyfriend still holds you in his heart and mind. A man who truly moves on will cut you off from his life, not unless a child is involved. But, if you find your man doing the above things, know he still loves you.
