9 Signs Your Ex Will Eventually Come Back

Signs Your Ex Will Eventually Come Back

Sorry to know that you are going through a break-up.

Breakups are hard, and it’s even harder to deal with them. There are a lot of ways to deal with a break-up, but sometimes, they don’t help you that much.

So, what do you do in that case?

Should you move on to another relationship or wait for your ex to come back to your life eventually?

Now, moving into another relationship isn’t a piece of a cake. You are going through a breakup and suddenly moving on to another relationship isn’t a humanly behavior.

Then, you should wait for your ex to come back, right?

Well, it’s not a piece of cake too. Without being sure he is going to come back, there is no benefit of waiting.

So, how do you know your ex will come back after pulling away?

Here are nine signs for you to know whether your ex is coming back or not.

Your breakup was never official

Your Breakup Was Never Official

  • How was your break-up?
  • Did it end in good terms?
  • Did both of you meet for the final time and broke the relationship?
  • Do your family and friends know that you and your boyfriend got separated?

If it’s just the two of you and none of your friends, neither your family know that you broke up, then you likely didn’t break-up.

You guys are probably on a break from your relationship and taking a break from a relationship isn’t considered as the “break-up.”

You are on a Ross and Rachel; we were on a break situation, from the famous TV Series, F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

If you have watched the series, you would know better.

If it was so, then there is a high chance, your boyfriend will come back.

You guys are still in contact

You Guys Are Still In Contact

  • Are you guys still in touch even after the break-up?
  • Do you call each other like you used to do before?

I know the conversations won’t be the same as it used to be, but do you still share things?

If a break up is inevitable, communication becomes almost zero in the relationship.

But, if you are still calling each other from time to time, then your relationship wasn’t ended in the wrong terms.

You guys are still friends, and you would be lovers again like before in no time.

Similarly, if you keep your communication intact in a positive way with your ex, then he will definitely be back with you.

He still cares about you

He Still Cares About You

He hurt you by breaking up the relationship, but he still cares about you. It’s so confusing, isn’t it?

Never to forget, a break-up doesn’t have the potential to delete the love and care from a relationship entirely.

No matter how you broke up, the love would still be there for a while.

  • He still cares about your health.
  • He asks about your studies and work.
  • He tells you to take care.
  • He says to convey his gratitude to your parents.
  • He respects you and treats you really well.
  • He still tries different ways to wish you on your birthday.

If he is doing all these things even after the breakup, then it’s a good sign he wants you back.

He gets engaged in your social media activities

He Gets Engaged On Your Social Media Activities

A lot of couples block each other from their social media accounts right after the breakup. If you two are still friends on social media, then you are already on good terms.

  • He likes and comments on your posts.
  • He sends messages to you on Facebook.
  • He calls you if he doesn’t see you online for a long time.
  • He answers your call immediately.
  • He compliments you on your pictures.
  • He saves your images on his phone from your profile.

If he doesn’t hesitate to engage on your social media accounts, chances are he is still in love with you. He will eventually be back, and you guys will have a happy relationship after that.

He hasn’t moved on to another relationship

He Hasn't Move On To Another Relationship

If he broke up with you for another girl, then he might have never loved you in the first place.

But, if the break up wasn’t because of the affair and it ended in the right way, there is a chance for you guys to be together again.

There might be two reasons for him to not moving on.

  1. He is fed up with the relationship and doesn’t want to be in it for a while.
  • In this case, there is nothing much you can do. You guys can stay as friends and hope to be together again someday.
  1. He is still in love with you, and he can’t be in a relationship with anyone else other than you.
  • Well, this is what we need, right? That’s a perfect sign. He wants to be back and be with you like before. He isn’t moving on to another relationship because he couldn’t forget about you.

He is sorry for losing you

He Is Sorry For Losing You

Have you ever noticed there had been a slight change in his voice after the break-up?

Most of the time, he sounds like he is crying.

You know what, there is a high chance that he is actually crying silently at that moment.

Yup, boys cry. They just don’t want the outside world to know that they cry, but they do.

He is crying because he is desperately missing you. He is sad because he is sorry for losing you.

How to know if a guy is really in love with you?
He cries when he misses you.

If he is genuinely regretting the breakup, he is eventually going to come back to you.

He misses you.

He Misses You

Well, he wouldn’t directly tell you that he misses you.

But, he will try to give some hints for you to understand.

He will come up with some random excuses to meet and talk to you.

He has spent some time apart from you, and now he realizes the value of the relationship. Loneliness gave him time to recognize what he is missing out.

If your ex tells you that he misses you, then it’s a pretty clear sign that he is thinking about getting back together with you.

He asks if you are seeing someone

He Asks If You Are Seeing Someone

He broke up with you and later he realized he had made a great mistake. He is regretting now and looking for ways to get back in your life again.

Now, he hasn’t moved on into another relationship. He is sure about that.

But what about you? What if you have already moved on?

If you are already with someone else, then it’s too late. So, to get back with you, he would have to ask if you are seeing someone lately.

He wouldn’t directly ask you about it because he knows he would be crossing the line. So, he will come up with a lot of things and ask questions like:

  • How is your love life going on?
  • I tried to call you on your cell, but it was engaged. Was it your boyfriend?
  • I saw a guy commenting on every picture of yours on Facebook, and you were also responding positively. Have you been dating him lately?

If your answer to all these questions is a big “NO,” then get ready to welcome him back to your life. He is certainly getting back with you.

He is still in touch with your friends

He Is Still In Touch With Your Friends

While you were in a relationship, you inevitably introduced some of your friends to him. He grew a pretty good bonding with them too.

Now, you guys broke up. The question is, “is he still friends with them?”

If your answer is Yes, then it’s a great sign.

Trust me; this usually doesn’t happen. If you broke up on a pretty messed up terms, you would tell your friends to unfriend your ex.  Also, your ex wouldn’t keep attachments with your friends.

Why do you think he is still friends with them?
Simply put, your friends can give him new updates about you. Your friends can act as the middle connection between you two.

Similarly, he wants to make a good impression on your friends so that he has a better chance of getting back together with you.
