There are always lingering feelings after the end of any relationship but you want to know for sure if your ex is still in love with you. You want to know that you are not the only one who is hurt and that there may be some small chance the two of you will work things out. I am going to explain to you exactly how you can tell if your ex is still in love with you so you can put all of your fears to rest.
People are not the greatest at sharing their feelings especially when they think they are going to get hurt. This is why you have to look for subtle signs that your ex is giving off to show you that they are still in love with you. The first sign you should look for is when your ex tells you they still want to be friends. This means they do not want you completely out of their lives. They may be protective of you and want to make sure you are not dating anyone else. Sometimes this simply means that the person is very confused about what is going on in their life at the moment and they need time to think. They don’t want to lose you but they can’t focus on a relationship at that time.
The next sign you should watch for is how often your ex text and calls you. If your ex is still texting and calling on a daily basis, they are trying to keep the lines of communication open, and this generally means they are still in love with you. You can rest assured you are on their mind if you are the person they are calling and sharing the events of their day with. If your ex is not calling, it does not mean they are not thinking about you, they may just need some time to process the break up.
The third sign your ex is still in love with you is that they still offer to do things for you. This can be from working on your car to mowing your grass or giving you things that will help you out. I have a friend whose ex still comes to work on her car, gave her a couch, and brings her dogs very expensive food on a weekly basis. He says he wants to help her out, she wonders if he still loves her. What do you think?
Finally the last way to tell if your ex is still in love with you is if they still show affection when they see you. When you see your ex, are you met with a big hug? If so this is a very good sign they are still in love with you. People usually don’t hug those they cannot stand.
If you believe your ex is still in love with you, be patient. They may be going through something you do not know about and it can take some time for them to work it out. Be their best friend, be there when they need someone to talk to or a shoulder to lean on. If your ex is showing any of the above signs you can guarantee they still love you and it is only a matter of time before you have them back.
