Top 5 Signs Your Ex Still Loves You


It hurts when we break up, but to move on or to help get your ex back, over-analysis of their behavior is not going to help. However, there are a few signs that show your former sweetheart loves you. These signs do not mean that your ex wants you to get back together, even if they like or even love you still. If you do want to get back together, there are some ideas about what you can do with the signs.

Negative emotions

Indifference is the opposite of love. This means that if an ex is showing negative emotions, it is because they are hurting because they still have feelings for you, but you didn’t meet their expectations. There is nothing you can do can change their negative emotions, so stop contact and give them space and time to realize they are still in love with you.



Your ex may try and make you jealous, perhaps with social media posts, so you know they are dating someone else, or they may flirt with other people when you are around. Apart from being an immature response, this competitiveness shows your ex is probably still in love with you, because it shows that you are on their mind a lot. Ignore this behavior and concentrate on the things you enjoy improving your own life.

Push/Pull Behavior

Push and Pull Behaviour

Your ex may be confused about their feelings for you. If they are playing it cool one minute and hot the other, you can be certain they have feelings for you. This can mean not talking for weeks and then suddenly wanting to spend time with you. They will ignore calls or texts and then call or text you daily. Be calm around this irrational behavior; do not reward their cold behavior with more attention.

Drunk Dialing

In vino veritas, meaning “in wine lies the truth“, suggests a person under the influence of alcohol is more likely to speak their hidden thoughts and desires. If your ex calls when they are intoxicated, it is an obvious sign they still have feelings for you. Yet, whilst they may confess their love to you when they are drunk, proceed with caution and do not answer any questions. A simple “You are drunk, and I don’t want to talk about it right now” is usually enough.

Breaking no contact rule

It is recommended that after a breakup that the couple agree to no contact for at least 30 days. If your ex contacts you within 30 days, then you can be sure that they are thinking about you and they still have feelings for you. Your ex may break the rule, but you don’t have to. You need to prove to yourself that you can survive without your ex for at least 30 days. It may be difficult, but it is worth it. Your ex will realize that you are not needy and not always available to them.
