How to Tell If Your Ex Wants You Back

If you realise that your ex maybe be starting to become interested in you again, and it seems like they are starting to flirt with you or, or they seem like they would like to go out and spend some time with you, it is quite alright to become encouraged by this, just don’t jump in the deep end right away. I am going to give you some tips so that you will know how to tell if your ex wants you back.

So your ex seems to be flirting with you, or is showing some interest in spending some time with you? These signs are very common if your ex is interested in getting you back. But as I said, don’t jump in the deep end here. You should try and make your ex a little concerned about whether or not they can get you back, basically, play hard to get (careful not to overdo it). This is the best way to get your ex even more interested as sub-consciously they see this as a challenge, which is sure to get them interested again. If you come on too strong too fast, then your ex may turn your back on you for good. Just play it smart.

Typically during break ups, both parties miss one another to some level, especially if you have been together for a long period of time. Despite the reasoning behind why the relationship has ended your ex will probably miss you regardless because of all of the memories that you shared during your relationship. A lot of the time your ex does miss you and is interested in getting you back as well.

However, you must be careful that you ex isn’t using you for attention. That may still know that you love them and are playing games with intentions of boosting their self-esteem a little, and have no genuine intention to get you back. So be warned, unless you are sure they really do want to get back with you they might just be looking for some entertainment until someone new comes along, or they may be trying to get revenge if you did something wrong. This is what makes it so important that you do not simply jump straight into things, and that you assess the situation before you take any drastic action.

A lot of people will often get excited and act too quickly without due assessment of the situation, which end up with them being hurt and single. If you think your ex does want you back, making them want what they can’t have is your best bet, this way if they are not genuine about it, it will cause minimal heartache.

I strongly recommend that you take your time and think things through when it comes to getting your ex back, otherwise you could end up harming the relationship even more. Take your time, have an overall plan and be rational and chances are you will be rewarded in the end.
