5 Signs You’re About to Get Back Together with Your Ex
It is the same old story.
You and your ex-partner have split, but for some unknown reasons, he still lingers in your life. Whether you share mutual friends or are in the same office or lecture, you seem to be constantly running into your previous significant other.
At first, it makes you feel quite awkward, but at some point, you find yourself at peace with that. Sooner than you think, you are having cappuccino together and texting more frequently.
Suddenly, it feels like an indescribable wave of emotion came over you and you’re getting closer to the relationship territory. But, you’re done with that story…right?
Here are some signs that the break-up scar is being mended and you’re not even realizing it
1. Pay attention to each other when out with friends
The sign number one that proves your hearts are about to beat as one is that you two are too busy talking to each other when you’re hanging out with your friends. Keep in mind that it’s not only the conversation that matters here! It’s also about what exactly you two tend to discuss.
Chatting about private affairs and feeling nostalgic over the past could be the possible indicators that you’re on your way to Loveland.
To cut a long story short, when that innocuous talk turns from your favorite Instagram channels and political decisions of Trump to personal matters like that fantastic date you’ve had in that Italian restaurant or how your ex’s mom is doing after divorce, the two of you might get back together sooner than you think.
2. You have a serious talk about why you split up
If you and your ex-significant other starts to discuss the causes that stand behind your breakup, this could serve as the biggest sign that you’re going to rebuild the relationship.
Actually talking about what made you break up is a mature (and usually uncomfortable) situation. So, if you feel like you can deal with this talk with due maturity, you could be ready to give your past a second chance.
3. They wonder who you sleep with
If your ex is curious about your love life, it could mean that s/he is probing where you are now and if the potential to bring back good old days actually exists.
Is s/he trying to find out whether you’re single? That’s a great sign they don’t mind revisiting that relationship again!
4. They are single and you’re the first to know
If your ex is about to create a huge banner saying, “I am single!” and carry it around, it could mean that s/he is trying to see if it means anything to you.
If you have deep feelings for your ex, knowing s/he isn’t seeing someone at the moment, will let you know the person is available for a happy reunion.
5. You’re socially connected
If you realize that your ex seems to be stalking you on the web, whether it’s liking your recent Facebook post or using the same essay writing service, it’s a sign that s/he’s thinking about you.
If that’s the case, chances are the things aren’t emotionally over between you two (at least, on the ex’s part).
So, what it comes down to is that you just have to be careful. Make sure to treat your ex like a stranger, if you don’t think you can make it once again. And if you allow the possibility of getting together, let your ex-partner earn your trust as if all these years have never existed.
Only you know what exactly broke your heart and what will make you feel happy in a relationship. If you think you two can mend it, trust your gut.
Just avoid hasty decisions on this matter.
