7 Signs Your Ex Wants You Back

How to Tell if Your Ex Still Loves You


Missing your ex and wondering if he or she feels the same way?  Share your feelings with them - but before you do, keep an eye out for these 7 signs your ex wants you back.  If 3 or more of them are true, then there's a very good chance that he or she is willing to try things out with you again.  And if none of them are true, then you're better off holding your tongue and looking for someone new.

1. He Starts Conversations with You

Is he always calling you, texting you or sidling up next to you after class to ask a question?  He's either pushing this "let's be friends" thing extra hard, or he's truly missing your company.

2. She Brings Up Old Inside Jokes and Nicknames

If she wants to talk about all the goofy, fun stuff about your relationship, she's trying to remind you of all the good times you had together.  Keep in mind, though, that there were some sucky times too...and consider whether going down that road again is really worth it.

3. He's Curious About Your Situation

Has he asked you or your friends if that guy you've been flirting with is your new boyfriend? It's probably because he's jealous of the attention you're giving other guys, and he's hoping you're still single.

4. She Apologizes for Whatever She Did Wrong

If she made some mistakes in the relationship that came out during the breakup scene, and now she's asking for your forgiveness for them, she might be hoping you'll give her another chance.

5. His Facebook Page Still Says "In a Relationship"

If your ex-boyfriend still hasn't changed his Facebook status back to "single" yet, he's in denial that you're broken up.  (Just make sure that his status doesn't mean he's in a new relationship.  That would mean just about the opposite.)

6. She Doesn't Want to Stop Talking to You

When you talk to her, does she find excuses to keep the conversation going?  She might be hoping that the discussion will turn towards getting back together, though she's too shy to bring it up herself.  Or she might just really, really like talking to you, which is also a good sign.

7. He Wants Your Advice

If he comes to you for help with his problems, it means that he still respects your opinions and wants your approval for the choices he makes.  And if the question he's hoping you'll answer for him is, "should we go out again?", well...the choice is yours.  Just be sure to make it carefully.
