3) He Calls You Out of the Blues Just to Chat
Another sign your ex still loves you could be him calling unexpectedly. These calls could be random and come when you least expect. It could be he’s been having a battle with his will not to call and finally lost.
4) He Still Remembers Your Birthday and Other Such Important Occasions in Your Life
A guy who still has feelings for you will care about the things that are important to you. Things like your birthday and other anniversaries shouldn’t matter to your ex after you both breakup. However, if he still remembers and also reaches out on these occasions, then this could be a glaring sign, he still cares.
While some people reach out to their exes on birthdays and special occasions, they don’t do so on every single important day of your life, and if your ex does, this could be a good sign.
5) He Goes Out of His Way to Do Favors for You
This is similar to him reaching out on important occasions. If your ex takes the time to do things for you, especially if this happens often, then it could be he still loves you.
6) Your Mutual Friends Tell You He Talks About You All the Time
If your ex still has the hots for you, you will get to now from your mutual friends as his conversions will be filled with talks of you.
7) You Run Into Each Other a Little Too Often
You are likely to run into your ex a few times, especially if you both loved and frequented the same places. However, if this seems to be happening frequently and at short intervals, then your ex may be accidentally on purpose running into you.
8) He Still Texts You
Another way to find out if your ex still loves is that he will text you occasionally or a lot. This won’t be the regular text some people send to their ex every once in a while but would be one with a nostalgic undertone.
If this happens a lot, then it’s clear your ex misses you and what you both shared.
9) His New Girlfriend Looks a Lot Like You
If your ex is still hung up over you, then he will likely compare every new girl to you. In the same light, he will get attracted to girls who share some similarities with you.
So, if you run into him at the mall with a girl who could be your doppelganger, then that could be a sign he’s not quite over you.
10) He Keeps Single
On the other hand, your ex might miss you so much, he’s unable to move on and so remains single.
This sign is tricky, though, and you want to be sure his singlehood is because he’s still got feelings for you and not out of some other personal choice.
11) He’s Finding It Hard to Let Truly Go
Your ex might also be finding it hard to let go of the relationship and might stalk you both physically and online.
This is usually a straightforward sign and makes it easier for you to make a decision.
12) His Eyes Light Up When He Sees You
The eyes are the window to the soul; they sometimes reveal what we feel inside. If your ex lights up when you enter a room, then it’s likely because this is important to him and makes him happy.
13) He Still Keeps In Touch With Important People in Your Life
Yet another glaring sign your ex still loves you is that he keeps in touch with key people in your life.
Since you still matter to him, these people do too, and he’ll be reluctant to severe these relationships.
14) He Tries to Make You Jealous
Your ex could also try to make you jealous, especially if he’s also experimenting with the idea of getting back together.
He might do this to try to gauge if there are still some feelings left on your part before making his move.
What to Do If You Find Out Your Ex Still Loves You
If you find out for certain your ex still loves you and wants to get back together, you might want to do a few of the following:
1) It would be best to find out if what broke you up is still the picture, so you know how to proceed from there.
2) You both might need to have a heart to heart to discuss the way forward, especially how to guard against that issue that split you both in the first place.
3) You might need to thread the waters softly; take things a slow for the first few weeks while you both work out any lingering issues, so you don’t get to that bad point again.
