signs your ex is waiting for you - you haven't told your friends

1. You haven’t told your friends

Or as we like to call it, avoiding reality. Your ex doesn’t want to face the music. He is waiting for you to come back, so he thinks it wouldn’t be wise to make it official with your friends, so they start making assumptions and asking uncomfortable questions. If he were so sure about the breakup, he would tell everyone about it immediately.

2. Have you checked his social networks?

If your ex uses social media a lot, it’s probably enough to look at his social profile to know what he’s thinking. Maybe he posted the lyrics of your song or a story from a particular place. Clear hints.

3. Doesn’t start conversations, but doesn’t avoid them either

Let’s say he doesn’t take the initiative but is available to you. This is one of the most obvious signs that your ex wants to tell you that it’s not over. He’s probably waiting patiently for you to notice and react.

4. He has a nostalgic air

You may be trying to be friends, but you can’t help it if you end up bringing up topics from the past every time you talk. Moments when you were happy, things you miss about each other? You can tell there is something unfinished.

5. He hasn’t picked up his things

You may have a lot of his stuff at his house, and he also has sweatshirts or personal items at yours. Many people prefer to forget about these things because they bring back too many memories, but in general, the logical thing to do is to pick them up.

If your ex left stuff at your place and hasn’t said anything about it, he may not want to pick them up because it means ending the relationship.

6. He texts you in the middle of the night

Let’s face it, a text in the early morning doesn’t have the same importance as a text in the morning. Ok, yes, it’s very nice that someone remembers you as soon as they wake up, but we are more vulnerable, open, sensitive, and sincere in the early morning. If he thinks of you late at night, he still has strong feelings for you.

What should you do if you notice any of these signs?

First of all, take some time to consider your feelings and needs before making any decisions. It can be challenging to navigate these situations, and feeling confused is normal. Don’t forget that being honest with yourself and your ex about your feelings and needs is vital.

If you decide to talk to your ex about their behavior, try to have an open and honest conversation about how you feel and what you need. It’s also essential to set clear boundaries and to respect each other’s decision if either of you decides not to pursue reconciliation.

I know it’s hard to reason when you are hurting, but here are some key things to consider before deciding whether to go back for your ex or not:

  • Take some time to reflect on why the relationship ended. What led to the breakup, and do you feel those issues have been resolved or addressed?
  • Think about what you want for your future. Are you open to reconciling with your ex, or do you feel it’s time to move on?
  • Consider how your ex’s behavior makes you feel. Are you comfortable with how they act, or are they trying to manipulate or pressure you?
  • Remember that you have the right to make the best decisions for yourself. You don’t have to feel pressured to get back together with your ex just because they want to.

Signs your ex is waiting for you: The bottom line

It’s important to communicate honestly and openly with your ex about the status of your relationship. If you are no longer in a relationship and your ex is waiting for you to come back, discussing your feelings and clarifying your intentions may be helpful.

If you are no longer in a relationship, you must be honest and respect each other’s boundaries. It’s also important to remember that deciding to end a relationship is personal, and it’s not up to anyone else to try to influence it. It might also be helpful to have some space and time to process your feelings and decide what you want for the future.
