7 Signs Your Ex Wants You Back

September 19, 2021

Just like it’s easy to tell when two people are in love, it’s easy to tell when your ex wants you back. So check these signs and take the quiz to know if your ex is over you.

Ex Wants You Back

Let me say this; break-up sucks; it’s the time when you remember every excellent time you had when you were in a relationship with this person and not in a good way. I mean, it just makes you sad that you will never have that again, and then you start doubting your decision. Whether you just did it out of anger or you didn’t mean to break up and then the realization that what’s done is done and you need to move on.

As awful as breakups are, there is always that moment when you wonder if your ex still wants you back, and then you analyze if you want them back too. You are confused stalking them on social media or asking your friends what they think about it, but instead, you can go through this article for signs your ex wants you back. I am sure you will have your answer and then try imagining yourself from your ex’s point of you to know the answer.

Get in Touch

Your ex gets in touch with you out of the blue for no reason or some lame reason. Imagine if you have broken up with someone for some proper reason, as they cheated on you, then if your ex gets in touch with you for no reason, that’s a positive sign. Of course, you are not going to get in touch with each other for a while, but if they get in touch with you for the reason that is not urgent, then they are just missing you, and that is, too, a positive sign. Another thing worth noticing is that how much they are in contact with your friends and family. When two people break up drastically, they break all communications and change their phone numbers or block others. However, then too some people keep in touch with everyone, which is a sign that your ex is thinking about you but cannot contact you directly. So, they are chatting with people close to you to get some answers.

If your ex asks about you

Naturally, your ex will ask about you a bit, like maybe once or twice, to know that you are okay because, well, they did love you once. Even though they don’t love you anymore, asking about you constantly and stalking you on social media tells you something about how they feel right now. You see, sometimes a relationship ends on terrible terms like there were police involved and shit. Other times it's just because of some general reasons like they are moving away and don’t think a long-distance thing can work or some similar type of thing. So at that time it’s natural for them to inquire about you and that’s okay too, but then some people are going out of their way and talking and asking about you constantly maybe to your relatives and friends, and that’s one of the definite signs your ex wants you back in life.

Chance Encounter

You know you two met for some reason, like you two hang out in the same neighborhood or work together or some other reason. It’s expected that in these circumstances, you two will run into each other at one point or another, except when the breakup was rough that time, you and your ex are trying to avoid each other at all cost. So you see, but when that doesn’t happen, and you two do run-in with each other, that’s fine occasionally, but when it is beginning to happen all the time, like wherever you go you see your ex, then that is a sign that your ex wants you back.

Behavioral Change

Every relationship they start has a type of honeymoon period where you both are experimenting and trying to woo each other like with roses, chocolates and other romancy things. This is the time that you remember after your break up the most, and then you see them acting that way again, and your heart pounds like it did the first time you met them. You know, you can see this in their behavior like they take your side in everything, they act like when you two met for the first time, they look for reasons to touch you. They are just trying to show you that it is still good in them, and if you notice this, then that is too a definite sign that your ex-girlfriend/boyfriend is trying to get you back.

Trying to Change

Every time a relationship ends, there is a reason, and it’s not entirely yours or your ex’s fault, but what you need to look out for if your ex tries to fix what was their fault. If that is the case and they are making sure that you find out that you are trying hard, then your ex is undoubtedly looking for a second chance. You see that change is a tricky thing, and people don’t usually do it for themselves. However, when they love someone, they will give it their best to change, and if you think that is what is going on here, then I would say that your ex wants you back for sure. So you need to address your flaws as well; if not for your ex, then maybe for the next person you date.

Body Language of your Ex

Body language is one of the best and a sneaky ways to tell whether your ex wants you back or not. You see, body language is something that only a few people have control over, and then it sneaks out sometimes. It is easy to say that you don’t like certain people when your friends ask you, but your body language certainly gives you away. Stuff like when they walk into a room they are all you see and nothing else if they need something, you try to help them get it even if it is indirectly.

And if you want to see it, check out if your ex is looking at you when you walk close by or do they try to touch you for some reason, or are they leaning towards you a bit. But, again, it’s the little things that give it away, especially when two people like each other and are trying to hide it, just like “Ross from Friends tries to hide his affection for Rachel.” He loves her but is still not going to accept it, just like your ex may show signs even though they don’t get it yet.

Direct Approach

This is a vast stretch, but when you are not responding to their sign or your ex is sure about what they want, then they make it a point to come out and tell you exactly that. And the speech goes something like this: they apologize, tell you they love you, and then promise you. And I don’t think I need to say that they want you back now because they do, or else they wouldn’t have gone through the trouble to tell you so.

Remember, even if your ex wants you back, you don’t need to want them back because there is some reason you two broke up. Unless and until those reasons are dealt with, you two are still going to have some problems. Secondly, if you have been reading this article, that is a sign that you have been thinking about your ex a lot, and you too have some unresolved feelings towards them that you need to address.

Also, remember no matter what happens, don’t start sleeping with your ex without addressing your feelings as well. It’s like they said, “If you give the milk for free. No one will buy the cow,” so if you start sleeping with them, then they get the benefits without all the emotional baggage, and that is too commitment-free, just saying. Lastly, I would like to mention that when two people break up, it’s not something that happens all of a sudden because there may have been signs for that as well.
