1) He’s curious to know whether you’re seeing someone else
If your ex is eager to know whether you’re dating someone else already, he still cares about returning to you.
He would be relieved to know you’re not already dating another person.
Early on, he’ll show signs that he doesn’t want you to break his heart by seeing someone else by sending mixed signals suggesting he might just need a break and doesn’t want to lose you to another guy.
And this will make him hasten his decision to try to get you back as soon as possible.
2) He begins to stalk you
Stalking may not be a perfect social behavior from your ex, but it’s a clear sign that he wants something from you, and the breakup is temporary.
Your ex may stalk you after a breakup because he wants you back but doesn’t know how to go about it the right way, or he is a little ego-stricken.
You may have a serious issue at hand dealing with a stalking ex. A case of Obsessive Love Disorder can be annoying and challenging to deal with.
If he is hyper stalking you, you’ll notice that;
He won’t stop calling and texting, and he would even send streams of emails.
He’d find it difficult to socialize. Maybe your inability to find someone else is why he’s more obsessed with you and is scared of losing you.
He acts in an insecure way
He would likely go out of his way to ensure you’re not making out with someone else.
He may also show signs of low self-esteem.
Your ex may show serious anxiety about losing you.
While this might signal that he wants you back, make sure he doesn’t go overboard with him.
One way to do this is to confront him and tell him to be 100 about his feelings and say what’s on his mind.
If he’s really serious about getting you back, he‘ll open up and pour out his feelings and emotions.
3) He maintains a Positive Social Media Interaction with you
There is a difference between stalking on social media and sensible social media connections.
A positive social media behavior might include;
Posting social media updates that will bring out the best feeling in you.
Sending text messages to you that you cannot possibly ignore.
Sharing appropriate memories about what you both care about.
Staying engaged at what you’re posting online.
He would be the best to react to posts you make online.
Your ex’s positive social media interaction might tell you that he’s interested in you. It’s even better if he doesn’t show desperation or any inappropriate behavior.
His communication will tend to address the reasons why you broke up in the first place.
4) He returns your calls timely
There is a good chance that your ex wants to have you back in his life if he maintains good communication with you.
If your ex calls back every time he misses your call, it shows that he cares about you.
5) He shares memories that you like
There are many ways your ex may choose to share memories with you.
Your ex may text you memories that you share.
He may use messaging and social media apps to share photos about memories that could start conversations.
When he meets you and has the opportunity to have a chat, it will be about attracting you back.
He’ll leave hints that he’s interested in getting back to you while sharing these memories.
You should try to see the whole attitude of your ex after sharing lovely memories.
It’s not enough that he has expressed he enjoyed the past with you…
…wait until he follows up with messages that show that he’s considering a future with you.
If you believe he’s changed and he shows signs that he still loves you, it’s a clear sign that you and your ex will get back together.
6) He refuses to let you move all your things from the house
When he keeps your things in his house, it might mean he’s not willing to let you go finally.
So, you shouldn’t be too surprised that your ex is keeping something like your photographs or other little things.
Also, keeping some of your belongings might be a way for him to always have you on his mind.
Maybe you should ask why he intends to keep some of your stuff.
Asking questions like this might give you more clues as to whether he will eventually come back to you or if the breakup is final.
7) He would want to visit you in person
If your ex wants to restart the relationship, he’d likely ask for a meeting to discuss things.
Or he’ll be willing to come all the way to visit you.
But before initiating the rendezvous point, he’d most likely;
Try to create rapport with you.
Decide to create a good impression of himself so you’ll agree to meet with him.
Likely to respond to the way you respond to his invitation. He’ll either come closer to you or go farther away from you, depending on how you respond to him.
Whether you’re married or not, mutual benefits and things you share in common will likely bring you both together.
So you might expect your ex to create situations where he’ll ask you to do him a little favor.
A physical, face-to-face conversation/interaction is way better than phone calls and text messages, and asking to meet with you shows that he’s confident to address the issue at hand.
