If you’re looking for signs your ex will eventually come back, you’re just in the right place!
Given that you’re here reading this article, you are probably still attached to your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend in one way or another and you still hope that your ex will eventually decide to come back.
First of all, know that you’re not alone in this situation.
I went through the same thing last year and I totally understand the complexity of your emotions and the stressful feeling of being unable to find the way out of this ‘labyrinth.’
No matter the reason why the two of you broke up in the first place, there will always be a part of you that will keep secretly hoping that things will change and that sooner or later you will be reunited again.
And this is completely normal. When two people break up, they don’t immediately give up on their feelings and delete every single memory from their past because it’s simply impossible to do so.
And that is when you start hoping and looking for signs your ex will eventually come back!
You start questioning your past and desperately looking for solutions and answers to why things panned out as they did, which is, again, completely normal.
Not all relationships are meant to end after a breakup!
I’m sure you’re already familiar with the saying that not all relationships are meant to last forever, but driven by my past experiences, I have the urge to invent a new one: Not all relationships are meant to end after a breakup!
Some relationships just require pressing a pause button, after which things fall in place as they were.
The biggest reason that this is true is the fact that you’re looking for signs your ex will eventually come back.
This means that you’re not ready to let him go because you subconsciously think that you still belong together.
And chances are that your ex thinks the same, but he is just too proud to acknowledge it.
You see, when it comes to breakups, men and women experience it differently.
While men are taught to be tough and show no emotions or regrets, women are the total opposite, which is one of the reasons why women heal from a breakup sooner.
Men are in a way doomed to keep all of their emotions to themselves and they are forced to find other ways to cope with it, whereas women don’t have problems with crying, yelling, and whatever else is needed to express the jumble of feelings inside.
But, there’s one thing common to both men and women who still have feelings for their ex: both subconsciously exhibit signs that tells they are still attached to their ex and they will eventually go back.
‘Actions speak louder than words.’
While your ex might not tell you how he really feels about your breakup, he will certainly show it with his actions.
So, if you’re interested in getting back together and you want to know if he feels the same, pay attention to the following 20 definite signs your ex will eventually come back!
20 DEFINITE SIGNS YOUR EX WILL EVENTUALLY COME BACK
1. He is already in a new (rebound) relationship
If your ex is already in a new relationship, don’t let that confuse you.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that he got over you and now he ha found someone else with whom he is happier.
In most cases, entering a new relationship right after a breakup means that the person is trying to fill the void left after your breakup.
If your ex is in a rebound relationship, it means he is trying to find your substitute, someone who will give him temporary relief from his misery.
The truth is that your ex still has feelings for you, but he has chosen the wrong way of dealing with it, or he might be doing it on purpose only to make you jealous!
2. He is dating someone who is your polar opposite
If he is dating someone who appears to be your polar opposite, he’s doing it subconsciously for the purpose of trying to forget about you.
He still cares about you and doesn’t know how to get rid of this feeling, so he chooses to find someone else who is your total opposite in the hope that this will help him get over you.
But, this works only temporarily.
The more he suppresses his feelings about you and forces himself to be with someone new, the longer he will be in misery.
After some time, he will realize that the only solution is to come back to you instead of chasing fake happiness.
3. He doesn’t date anyone
This one’s more obvious than the previous two signs.
So, if your ex is not dating anyone after breakup, it means he is unable to move on and simply can’t be with anyone else at the moment, no matter how much he wants to make you jealous.
It means he is solely focused on your past and thinking about how to get you back or hoping that you will be the initiator of it.
He also might be too depressed to go out anywhere and simply not in the mood to meet new people because he still has hopes of you two getting back together.
4. He isn’t returning your things
After a breakup, when two people are one hundred percent sure that it is over, the first thing that comes to their mind is getting rid of all the things that accumulated during the time they spent together.
And if this is not the case with your ex, there are two possible reasons for it.
First, he feels too attached to every single thing and gift that he’s received from you and he simply cannot give it back to you.
Second, he is certain that after some time you will be back together, so there’s no need for returning any of your things just yet.
5. He stalks you on social media
This is one of the biggest signs your ex will eventually come back to you.
If he constantly comments on your posts, likes your every post, and follows your every move on social media, you can be sure that he is still crazy about you.
He stalks you on social media because obviously he misses you a lot and cannot help himself to follow your every move and impatiently wait for your next post.
If this is the case with your ex, you can be sure that soon you will be back together in no time (if that is your wish too, of course).
6. You broke up on good terms
You didn’t cheat on each other and you didn’t play mind games while you were together.
If you broke up on good terms, it means that nothing’s really damaged yet.
Your relationship is still intact and it is probably just a matter of time before your ex comes back to you.
And that is the main reason why you two are still in touch with each other.
You don’t feel the urge to indulge in the ‘no contact’ rule because you’re not mad at each other and you don’t have hard feelings.
You’re still good, but you’re just separated for the time being.
7. The two of you still have plans
If you’ve stayed friends, and your ex is constantly reminding you of an upcoming event that you two should go to (maybe with the rest of your close friends), it is one of the definite signs your ex wants to and will eventually come back.
He’s doing this because he can’t think of anyone else with whom he would like to go with to that certain event.
If you two are equally crazy about some band that not many people know about, chances are he will want to experience it only with you because you still complement each other and he’s not interested in dating others.
8. He texts you frequently
You receive messages in the morning when you wake up, during the day, and before you go to sleep.
Your ex still texts you frequently and you have the feeling that you’re still in a relationship with him and nothing has changed.
Well, maybe you’re right! If he is texting you frequently, it means he cannot stop thinking about you no matter what he does.
He constantly is reminded of you and can’t resist letting you know about the last funny incident at work or something else, only to see your reaction or to make you smile.
And, of course, to constantly remind you of him so that he makes sure they’re on your mind just like you’re on his!
9. He calls you whenever he is drunk
Has your ex ever called you while being totally wasted?
If yes, it is because he couldn’t stop thinking about you even after liters of alcohol and his favorite beverages.
It is because his mind is constantly reminding him of you and only when he is drunk does he find the courage to act and call you.
This one’s typical of every ex who is going through tough periods and fighting to find the courage to get you back.
Also, pay attention to what he is telling to you when he calls and I’m sure you’ll connect the dots on your own.
10. He is still in touch with your friends
He doesn’t text or call only you, he also does so with your friends.
You could say that he’s trying hard to stay in touch with your friends, although you’re not sure why. But, I will tell you.
The only reason he cares about staying connected with your friends is because they are their middlemen when it comes to talking to you or finding out things about you (that they can’t ask you).
Also, he’s doing it because he wants to make a good impression on your friends so that he has a better chance of getting back together with you.
11. He said he’s unhappy after the breakup
Not many exes will admit that they are not happy after a breakup, and if they do, you can be sure that it is true.
Some people (and especially men who are taught to act like nothing happened after breaking up) will do anything to prove how utterly happy and content they are, only to fool themselves.
If your ex tells to you, or more likely your friends, how unhappy and miserable he feels after breaking up with you, he’s subconsciously hoping that your friends will tell this to you.
He is sending you an indirect message that he really wants you back in his life.
12. He always makes excuses to see you
Is your ex constantly looking for reasons to see you?
Or do you feel like he is always at the same place as you, even though you didn’t tell him that you’ll be there.
When someone wants to see you so badly, he is capable of making up the most complicated situations and lies that he needs something from you, only to feel your presence and finally see you.
If you suspect that your ex is guilty of this, he is really trying hard to still be a part of your life and he won’t stop making excuses until the two of you finally reunite.
13. You broke up because of distance
Some relationships are doomed to fail only because of distance.
If this is the reason why the two of you broke up in the first place, chances are that you’ll be back together sooner than you think.
Long distance relationships are really hard to maintain because you can’t feel the touch of your loved one and you can never understand him completely.
That is why many of these relationships end no sooner than they start, and after some time, couples reunite because there were no major issues for breaking up in the first place.
The only reason was being distanced from each other, which can be easily fixed in the future.
14. His mother calls you, saying that he misses you
No one is more intuitive than dear mothers when it comes to our pain regarding breakups.
So, if his mother calls you only to say that her son misses you, believe her!
She is probably doing it for your ex because she sees that he’s having difficulties approaching you, and she just wants to help.
15. His reply to your text is longer than the one you sent
Have you noticed some interesting writing patterns when it comes to texting?
If not, next time you text with him, make sure to pay attention to his writing style.
If you send two to three words max, and your ex replies with a novel, it means he wants your conversation to last longer.
Also, another sign of how desperate he is to talk to you is if he is constantly asking you questions.
That way, he is deliberately prolonging your conversation, even at the cost of being too pushy.
He is persistent no matter what and you can feel it yourself.
16. His friends still talk about you
If your ex comes to you with new updates about you after every time he sees his friends, it means he simply can’t stop thinking and talking about you.
You are his number one topic. He might also use his friends as an excuse to talk to you more often.
This, too, is one of the biggest signs your ex will eventually come back.
The fact that his friends are still interested about you means they would like to see you two back together and they think that it is a good idea.
Just like his mother, his friends are also your middlemen.
17. He treats you really well
You can’t find a single flaw when it comes to his treatment of you, which also makes you think about why the two of you broke up in the first place.
When you’re hanging out together, he is really careful of his words and actions.
He tries hard to make you feel special, which is his way of letting you know that he still wants you badly.
Especially if you’ve had problems regarding lack of attention in your relationship, now he is putting in multiple efforts to make it up to you and prove that he is still the right choice for you.
18. He answers your call immediately
When you call him, you don’t wait hours for him to pick up his phone. Instead, he answers your call the same second you start dialing.
It is because most of the time he is literally waiting next to his phone in the hope that you’ll call him.
And when you do, he can’t help then picking up as soon as possible only to hear your voice and become at ease.
If he wasn’t crazy about you, you can be sure that he wouldn’t bother that much about your phone calls.
So, don’t forget to pay attention to that little detail that tells a lot about his feelings for you.
19. He is staying the same
In majority of cases, when partners breakup with each other, they each undergo huge transformations both physically and psychologically, only to become new people who will delete all of their past and everything regarding their ex.
But, if you can tell that your ex has stayed pretty much the same, then he is not that interested in forgetting you.
He doesn’t bother that much about moving on.
Instead, he’s probably still living in the past, waiting for the time when you will get back together and continue from where you left off.
20. He shares about his dreams, goals, and future
The only reason why your ex would share with you his dreams, goals, and future is because he still wants you to be a part of his life.
He wants you to know everything that is going on in his life and be updated regarding his future as well.
He does this because he simply cannot imagine his life without you and he uses every opportunity to tell you so (but not directly).
You can be sure that he’s already imagined spending his future with you, and now it’s only a matter of time before it becomes reality.
