Signs Your Ex Is Coming Back-4

Will Your Ex Eventually Come Back?

You can notice signs suggesting your ex wants to get back to you.

The more signs they show, the more likely they are to return.

But just because they want to come back doesn’t mean they should.

Only you can decide that. 

But these signs will give you a good idea of where to start.

11 Signs Your Ex is Coming Back

1. They’re Trying to Make Contact

If your ex is trying to get back in touch, they want to be in your life in some capacity.

Where that might lead, who knows? But it’s a more positive sign than if they don’t want to speak with you at all.

Sometimes hindsight makes us see things we didn’t before.

And we don’t realize just how special someone is to us until we have to live without them.

They might have come to this realization about you. There’s only one way to find out.

2. They’re Staying Single

If your ex isn’t in a new relationship, it can mean one of two things.

1) They might want some time to self-focus and process the breakup before they move on, or

2) They still have feelings for you and don’t want to be with anyone else.

If they wanted to forget about you, they’d be out meeting new people and getting on with their lives.

3. They Ask Your Friends About You

When your ex goes out of their way to enquire about you, it shows they care enough about you to ask.

If they do want to come back to you, they could use your friends as a gateway to seeing you again.

They might ask about your personal life or if you’ve met anyone new. That shows they still have feelings for you, and they’re not sure if they’re ready to move on.

4. They Reply to Your Texts/Calls Instantly

We’ve all called or texted someone we like and received a delayed response, or even no response at all.

But if someone replies right away, it shows they consider you important enough to stop what they’re doing to respond.

Suppose you’ve been texting each other lately, and things are going well; getting back together could be on the table.

5. There are Positive Vibes Between You

Everything is energy. Suppose there’s still positive energy between you, and you still enjoy spending time together.

Why wouldn’t they want to come back to a relationship with you?

Be careful, though, not to make assumptions.

The vibes could be positive because you have broken up, and the issues you used to struggle with aren’t in play anymore.

Regardless, positive energy is always a good sign.

6. They’re Less Happy Without You

People are strange. We think we’ll be happier if we leave a relationship, so we break up.

Then we realize how good we had it and we’re not as comfortable as we expected.

If your ex is telling you they’re unhappy without you; they’re saying they want to come back again and rekindle your relationship.

7. You Broke Up Over Something Minor

Think about the reason you broke up.

Was it that bad? Or did you both let your emotions get the better of you and break up in a moment of anger?

If you broke up over a minor disagreement that snowballed into something bigger, ask yourself if that was worth throwing away everything you had together up until that point.

Life’s too short to sweat the small stuff. 

Suppose the reason you broke up was something petty, and you still have a connection with each other.

In that case, your partner could indeed be interested in coming back.

But the critical question is; Are you?

8. You’ve Both Grown Since You Broke Up

People learn and grow through experience.

Breakups are among the most prominent teachers we have because they teach us what we want and, more importantly, what we don’t want.

Most people mature after a breakup, especially if the relationship is special.

If you had something unique, and you still have feelings for each other, AND you’ve both grown beyond the issues that caused problems, why not give it another try?

9. They Still Want to Be in Your Life

The fact that your ex still wants to be in your life tells you they care about you and want to stay in touch.

If that’s the only reason, they might call to say hi and maybe catch up from time to time.

But if they want to meet up, hang out, have long talks over the phone, texting back and forth, they want to come back.

10. They’re Jealous if You’re With Someone New

Jealousy is a very powerful sign. 

Why would you be jealous of someone you have no emotional feelings for? You wouldn’t.

If your ex is jealous of the idea of you being with someone else, they still have feelings for you and would prefer to be with you and not anyone else, not someone else.

But just because they’re jealous and want you back, that doesn’t mean you should do it or that it’s the best thing for you.

Accept it as a sign they want to return, but tread lightly.

11. They Regret the Breakup

In most cases, when an ex regrets breaking up with you, they’re thinking about being back together again.

Why else would they regret not being with you?

What’s more important, though, is how you feel about the breakup.

This sign shows you they want to come back, but that doesn’t mean that’s the right thing for you to do.

If you both had a pattern of repeated breakups, that’s a real sign you should both go your separate ways and go on with your life.

Your decisions come down to what you want out of life and relationships.

Each sign on their own is a reliable indicator they’re open to returning to the relationship, but the more signals you have, the more confident you can be.
