7 Signs That Your Man Is Still In Love With His Ex

Date October 10, 2018

A new relationship is an experience nothing short of amazing. You are only getting to know each other, spend a lot of time together and truly enjoy each other’s company.

How to tell if he forgot his ex and let go of his past relationship?

A man who is devoted entirely to his new girlfriend will not do these seven things.

1. He talks about her

It is OK to share about a past relationship. It is not OK when he brings her up over and over again. And the context is irrelevant. He can badmouth or praise her. Either way, it is not a good sign and hints that he is not over his ex yet.

2. He does not talk about her

The other way around - he doesn’t talk about her at all, and when you ask him, he goes into a rage, becomes withdrawn and irritable. No matter how tough their breakup was, the past should stay in the past, especially since he is in a new relationship now. But, apparently, he still has strong feelings for her.

3. He keeps in touch with her on social networks

Whatever men and women may say, friendship between the opposite sexes is very unlikely. Especially if they are former lovers. If he regularly communicates with her on social networks and does not respond to your concern, this is a reason to think. He says this is just an idle talk? Then why does he need his ex for that, if he has you? A huge warning sign.

4. He keeps things related to her

Photos, her gifts, personal items. Perhaps he hasn’t got round to getting rid of them or just doesn’t notice them. In the worst case scenario, these things are of real value to him. It is a serious reason for concern if this one is combined with a couple of others from this list.

5. He advertises your relationship too much

Takes a million of selfies with you and posts all of them on social networks. Takes you to events to show that he is in a new relationship to as many people as possible. There are extroverted men who can’t wait to tell the world about their new girlfriend and get her acquainted with all the friends, and there are men who just want to annoy their ex. Which one is yours?

6. You have problems in bed

This can result from excessive stress and emotional strain, or his strong mental attachment to the ex-girlfriend.

7. He offers her his help

Even if they broke up “on good terms", they are strangers to each other now. And to offer her assistance in planting potatoes or fixing a computer is strange in the least. A man who has let go will take the initiative only in case of emergency.
