5 of The Biggest Signs That Your Ex Still Wants You

After a break up, most people make some attempt at getting back with an ex boyfriend or girlfriend. Some succeed while others fail, but knowing whether or not your ex still has feelings for you is an important part of the process.

Signs Your Ex Still Wants You
Does your ex still have feelings for you?
Would you even know the signs?

If you want to know for sure that he or she is willing to give your romance a second shot, you need to look for the signs that your ex still wants you.

Keep in mind that for every break up there's the chance for a reconciliation. A good part of whether or not you get back together is all up to you. Learning how to get back an ex boyfriend or girlfriend isn't easy, especially if they're the one who dumped you. But it's even harder sometimes to try and to identify the signs and signals given off by your ex when he or she still has feelings for you.

Spotting these signs is important for two reasons. First, it gives you hope - and the encouragement to go on. Winning back your ex can often be a long, patient process, so it's always good to know when your efforts are paying off, and you're making some progress on getting them to want you.

The second reason however is more important: if your exboyfriend or exgirlfriend is giving you the green light to go ahead with things, and you don't take it? Such miscommunication could lead to something as drastic as not getting back together again... even though he or she may have wanted to potentially reconcile things with you.

Below are five of the biggest signs and signals that your ex still wants you:

Your Ex Stays In Touch After The Breakup

Just as the no-contact rule is a vital part of the break up process, contact is an important part of getting back together. If your boyfriend or girlfriend has been keeping in touch with you throughout the break, chances are good they're still interested in pursuing something with you. He or she might not be fully sold just yet, and they may even be exploring other options. But the fact that they're still in contact with you you even after breaking things off is usually an indication of something cataclysmically important: that your ex is not totally over your relationship yet.

And an even bigger sign? When your ex starts calling you out of the blue. To have this person returning your calls and messages is one thing, but when your ex is the one who's initiating the phone calls, emails, and text-messages, it's a tremendous signal of hope for a future relationship.

Getting your ex back is always toughest when they return your calls at all... but there are some good ways of making your ex call you if you're willing to learn them.

Your Ex Boyfriend or Girlfriend Wants To Meet You

In trying to win your ex back, phone and email contact is a great start. But even better, is when your ex asks to physically see you.

Meeting up with your exboyfriend or exgirlfriend for the first time after they ended things can be awkward and strange, but you need to think past those emotions and put on a cool, confident front. Try not to be nervous, and remember that they're the one who asked you to meet.

Any time someone is trying to physically see you rather than talk on the phone, there's an underlying reason for it. Obviously the contact they have with you isn't quite enough - your ex is looking to meet you so he or she can give off further signs they still want or need you in their life. These can include body language, vocal tone, flirting with the eyes... keep a constant lookout for these encouraging signals.

Your Ex's Attitude Toward You Suddenly Changes

After the break up, an ex can become cold and distant. Your boyfriend or girlfriend might refuse contact, act busy, and use one-word answers in their conversations with you. These are all signs that they're disinterested, at least for now. But when your ex begins turning those things around? It's a definite sign that he or she is getting warmed up to you again.

Any sudden change in your ex's behavior usually indicates that something in his or her own life has changed - usually something that's altered their viewpoint toward you as a potential mate. Keep an eye open for any rapid adjustments to your ex's attitude toward you, and roll with them when necessary. A complete reversal of your exboyfriend or exgirlfriend's past behavior could be one of the signs your ex still wants you... even if it's subconscious, and they're not yet ready for you to knoa about it.

Your Ex Starts Hinting To You About Dating Again

When your ex is ready to get back together, he or she may hint at it to feel you out. They're doing this to make sure they don't get let down... it's a way of putting themselves out there without really putting themselves out there.

What will often happen is your ex will kid around about going back out. They'll ask questions such as what you'd do "if you ever" got back together again, etc... etc... These should all be big green flags that your ex is trying to tell you something, and that something is that he or she is open to such an invitation. Flirt back with them, and give your ex the same type of hints. If they're still receptive to them, it's about time to make your move.

Your Ex Starts Asking About Your Own Single Status

When your ex starts getting in touch with you after the break up, he or she wants to keep the lines of communication open for a specific reason. Usually that reason is to keep you hanging around, just in case they want to change their mind about breaking up with you. Knowing where you are and what you're doing makes your ex feel safe and comfortable, especially if he or she knows you still love them and would take them back at a moment's notice.

Those things aren't necessarily an indication that your ex boyfriend or girlfriend is ready to reconcile, but when they start asking about your current love life? Your ex definitely has feelings for you that they're trying to keep hidden. Even though your ex will make those queries under the guise of "just being friendly", the truth of the matter is that they don't want you going anywhere... with anyone. This is a big sign that your ex still wants you - on some level or another. He or she might not want you back just now, but they definitely haven't let go of the idea of dating you again.

If you want to get your boyfriend or girlfriend back you need a step by step plan. You can't approach the task of fixing your break up without knowing what your every move should be, and when you should be making those moves. A good blueprint for success will always give you a much better chance at winning back your ex than if you just walked up to her and started talking.

By learning all you can, and by using the proper techniques and methods that apply to your own break up situation, you can greatly increase the chances that you'll get back together with an ex boyfriend or girlfriend.

What if your ex isn't showing ANY of these signs that he wants you back? What then?

Another big sign they want you back is when they start asking friends about you. My ex started feeling out my friends to see whether or not I would take her back. Up until that point, she wasn't even talking to anyone.

The best thing to do is sit back and chill for a while. If your ex still wants you, there will ALWAYS be signs. There's not much in the way of action you can take during the first few days (and even weeks) after someone breaks up with you. You need to steer clear of them long enough so that they miss you, think about you, and most of all, wonder where you are. This is where your ex will start to need you back: when you've completely and totally gone away.
