Discover subtle clues that your ex boyfriend gives off to tell you that he still likes you. It is all about understanding body language and reading between the lines.
After a break up it is very common to feel that your ex boyfriend does not like you anymore, especially if he was the one that broke up with you. This is a normal thing to worry about and every situation is different. He may have told you that he had fallen out of love with you, but this does not mean that he still doesn't like you and respect you as a person.
When you have had a relationship with someone there are connections that are very difficult to break. The attachments that are formed are very strong and this is why you are feeling so low at the moment. Remember that it is not just you who is experiencing these feelings of loss. He will be too. Even if he has dumped you he will miss having you in his life and be wondering what you are doing. There will be a void within him too and this is what makes it possible for couples to get back together when they realise that they cannot live without eachother.
With that being said, it would be useful to take a look at some of the signs that would indicate that your ex boyfriend misses you and is pining over you.
He Contacts You
Ok, so this could be any kind of contact. Texting, facebook messages, emails, instant messages or phone calls are very good indicators that he is not taking the break up as well as you thought. When he has nothing to say, but is just asking how you are, or saying hello, he is trying to make a connection with you and misses you. You should also be able to tell by the tone of his voice how he is feeling. He will also probably want to drag the conversation out for as long as possible because he misses you and is curious about what you are getting up to. Look out for these signs as they are the biggest indications that he misses you.
He Bumps Into You A Lot
If you suddenly notice that your ex boyfriend is bumping into you 'accidentally' then you are onto a winner here. He will be trying to see you or make up excuses to talk to you, and this would be a perfect opportunity. Look out for him turning up at your work or places that you used to go a lot. This is no coincidence!
If he is flustered when he sees you then this is also a huge clue that you are still having an effect on him. This behaviour could be construed as stalking, especially if you find him lurking around near you and looking suspicious. It is probably innocent enough though and is just an attempt for him to make some kind of contact with you again without having to call you and put his ego on the line.
He Asks Friends About You
Sometimes guys are too embarrassed to contact you directly and decide to enquire about your well being through friends. It is easier for them as they do not have to deal with you directly. If your friends say that he has been asking after you then it is a sure sign that he is missing you. If he didn't care at all he wouldn't bother asking your friends. He is trying to test the waters here to ascertain whether or not you would be open to communication from him. He knows that if your friends are off with him he has little chance of getting you on side. Think about it, he wants to protect his pride and so thinks that it is safer to find out about what you think through your friends first.
He Looks At You
If you cannot avoid your ex boyfriend and you still have to see him a lot, look out for him taking sneaky or lingering looks at you. Trust your own intuition here, if you feel like his eyes are burning into you, they probably are. He misses you.
Don't be rude or ungracious if you catch him looking in your direction, after all, you want to encourage his advances a little. The last thing that you want to do is make him feel like he can't approach you at all. It would be a good idea to offer him a quick smile if your eyes lock. This will encourage him to make the next move and talk to you.
