First of all, let’s make this clear: people break up and get back together all the time. Just because you and your partner broke up, doesn’t mean that it is all over. Sometimes a relationship is worth fighting for. Other times it is not. But just how do you know if your relationship is worth saving? Pay attention to the following seven signs. If these are present in your current situation, then there is still hope of saving your relationship and getting back with you ex.
If your ex wants to remain friends after breaking up, there is still hope. This shows that they still care about you, but you must be careful not to move too fast or it could backfire and make matters worse. For now, just be friendly and hold back on your urge to tell them how you really feel until the right moment comes along.
2. Missing You
If your ex tells you that they miss you, it is likely they miss being close to you. Something might have reminded them of a good moment or memory you both shared together. When they tell you that they miss you, they are trying to find out if you miss them too.
3. Reaching Out
Is your ex regularly trying to reach out to you? It might be a simple Facebook poke, an email or mail postcard wishing you a happy birthday, or a message left in your inbox. Most likely they have been thinking about you, and are trying to send subtle signals that they are still interested. Unless of course they make their intensions clear through whichever medium they use to reach out to you. In either case the odds are in your favor.
4. Asking About Your Dating Status
If your ex asks you, or your friends if you are dating someone, they are probably wondering where they stand with you, and might be reconsidering getting back together. If this happens, don’t lie to them by making up an imaginary, perfect girlfriend or boyfriend, as this might ruin your chances of getting your ex back. If they think there is a new person in your life, they might be discourage to try to get back with you. It is better to be honest about who you are, or are not seeing at the moment.
5. Acting Like They Got Something to Talk About
Have you spend time with you ex lately and noticed that they seem nervous or anxious, as if there is something they have to get out? Pay attention to how your ex acts around you, and if you notice them acting anxious or a little nervous, try to make them feel comfortable before you sit to talk. Either you or your ex has to come clean about your feelings for each other, and this might be the right moment to do so. Watch out for these signs though, and only move forward if you notice them.
6. Asking Your Friends About You
It is not uncommon to hear about your ex through one of your friends bumping into them, specially if you share the same friends. When they ask about you, they are also trying to see where they stand, hoping to get some information about anything you might have said to your friends about them, or if you are dating someone new. This is a good indication your ex still has an interest in you.
7. Texting You Regularly
Sometimes it is much easier to say something through texting than through a phone call, specially when contacting an ex. You are more likely to receive a text from your ex right after a break up, than you are of getting a phone call. If your ex texts you regularly for whatever reason, chances are they are not ready to to let go of the relationship. How you respond to the texts would depend on many factors, and you must consider them before you ruin your opportunity by sending the wrong message.
