Few things in this life are true, but I can tell you one thing for sure. Every person who has gone through a breakup has wondered if it was the right decision or not.
So how do you know if your ex regrets the breakup? How do you know if he wants to come back with you? Well, here are many «signs you should watch to see if your man regrets letting you go.»
1. He remains single.
If your ex seems to have had an impossible time to move on, he might be waiting for that future to exist. Do not assume that this is the case. Sometimes, especially after a sudden break. Some people remain single simply to protect themselves from having to deal with the pain of being hurt again.
If your ex is hoping to reconcile with you, then his singleness is more likely to manifest itself with one or more of these other signals, not alone. Therefore, do not jump to conclusions without anything else that supports this.
2. Try to maintain a connection.
He will fight to stay in your life through friends. He will fight to stay connected through your family. This will become obvious when you notice that he is approaching and becomes kind to people with whom he would not normally feel comfortable, so you can bet that his goal is to keep you close.
3. Try to correct old mistakes.
If he regrets the breakup, then you can bet he will spend a lot of time thinking about how he could have ruined things. You can bet that he will try to apologize. If your ex starts to present all kinds of apologies and tries to solve the problems, this is another way to stay connected with you.
4. Cannot accept the break.
We all do stupid things. Occasionally, there are people who, instead of addressing the problem or admitting that they made a mistake, will act as if it never happened. But how do you know if that is what happens? If your ex is trying to act like they haven’t finished, then you can bet that he sees the whole break as a mistake.
5. It is too negative.
Everything in his life has collapsed and suddenly you are his therapist. He comes to you to talk about every thing that goes wrong, be it something smaller or really very big. Breaking news, he wants to stay connected to you and believes that the only way to do it now is if you feel sorry for him.
This is total manipulation. It’s nice to feel needy, but putting this kind of pressure in a relationship is dangerous. Returning to this type of relationship will not be good for anyone, even if you want to get it back. In situations like these, I suggest you let your friends and family know that a bad time is happening and that you should take some time for yourself.
6. It is too positive.
This is quite common these days. The goal is to make you feel as if your life pales in comparison to what went without it and is better without you. Basically, he is painting his grass greener so yours looks dull and colorless. It is a clever way to make you miss him. And make you feel that the emotion that your life lacks was clearly when he left.
7. Try to force yourself to miss him.
After a breakup, we are generally all a bit guarded. But your ex seems to have no problem exposing everything and in front of everyone. If your man is doing this kind of thing, then there is no doubt that he regrets letting you go.
8. He wants to try to recover you.
If your ex seems to think that the reason the relationship didn’t work was due to a deficiency, then you are likely to try to recover by solving any problem he perceives as the cause. It is going to be presented as a kind of strange barter where your plan to improve things tells you. Wait for him to tell you if it is worth the effort or if he is on the right path.
He will say things like,
«If I quit smoking, would you give me another chance?»
«I’m thinking of going back to the gym and getting back in shape.»
«I’m thinking of getting a real job and moving from my mother’s house.»
9. Keep appearing in your steps.
You are going to get a coffee. He is there. You go to your favorite bar and he is there. It somehow makes you think of him even when he isn’t there. This movement is usually a sign that fear is your biggest motivator. He is afraid of having lost his place in your life and that you find someone else to fill that place.
10. Change personality.
He was a person when they were together and now he is another completely different person. It almost seems that he has become the man you always wanted him to be. Unfortunately, no matter how hopeful these changes may be about reconciliation, they are never permanent when they are made simply to recover you.
Keep in mind that changes in a person take time and will not happen overnight. If it seems that he has done so, it is likely that it will be a short time before he becomes his self before the breakup.
11. Makes great gestures.
Holding a boombo x playing a cheesy song outside your window. Give up a great addiction. Or makes some seemingly selfless gesture. But, like the previous point, this does not solve anything. It is simply a catalyst for you to return to the relationship. Making professions of love and dramatic gestures does not solve the problems that existed within the relationship and that probably caused the breakup.
12. Invent excuses to touch you.
This is something that happens even before the appointment begins. It is an animalistic instinct to touch the object of your affection. The underlying reason behind this impulse is due to chemical oxytocin. This is also known as the «Hug Hormone.» Basically, being close to someone makes you feel connected to that person.
13. Begins to show more interest.
When they were together, he didn’t even know the names of your friends or your hobbies. At the beginning of the relationship maybe, but over time he stopped paying attention or worrying. However, suddenly, he has been interested in EVERYTHING you are doing.
He knows who your friends are and what all of you are doing almost all the time. While I am pleased to tell you that that means he is still interested in the relationship, it also means that he took you seriously. It is something that I think you should keep in mind.
14. Ask for your advice on everything.
Asking for your help is your way of prostrating yourself at your feet, giving you power over the direction in which your relationship is heading. By making you feel that he needs you, he is trying to make you feel that he cannot function without you. That responsibility is intended to prevent you from leaving. It is a natural reaction to want to keep you close.
15. He struggles to stay connected with you.
As soon as the distance between you grows, there is your ex, swimming against the current. You will know that this is what is happening because he will become an absolute fool. Even if he is outside your window right now screaming «you are the light of my eyes», he will do even more exaggerated things to keep your focus on him, even if he is «just as friends».
So what should you do with this information? How do you use it?
Well, the first step is easy. You have to find out what you want. I mean, we already know that your ex wants to come back with you. In any case, your terms and conditions are broken down into respect, understanding and communication. Without those things, you would not return to a relationship, no matter how much you miss it.
My suggestion is that you define your terms and conditions and write it down. In the same way, writing what you want from the relationship and what you are willing to accept will make it more likely to adhere to them. Then, once you discover what you want, all you have left to do is chase what you want.
