You’re probably still reeling from the end of your relationship.
No matter how much you ended things on good terms, it’s always going to hurt for a while.
And then there’s the hope of your ex giving you another chance…
Of course, there’s no way to know for sure, but here are some of the signs that your ex wants you back and will give you another chance:
1) They’ve started reaching out to you
If your ex has reached out to you in any way, shape, or form, this is a sign that they want you back.
You may find that they’ve started following you on social media again or are calling you more than usual.
You see, if your ex is texting you more often than they used to or asking to spend time with you, these are definite signs that they want another shot at the relationship.
Think about it: why would they reach out again out of the blue if it wasn’t to give you another chance?
Sure, there’s always the option of just being friends with them, but if they’re reaching out and not making it really clear that they want to be friends, it’s because they want more than just friendship.
This is a pretty obvious sign and one that is easy to spot but don’t fret if your ex hasn’t reached out yet, there are more signs that will follow:
2) They’re really sweet and apologetic
Although it’s hard, I want you to think about your breakup for a second.
Did your ex go out of their way to make you feel better?
Were they really apologetic about what happened in the relationship, or were they understanding and kind throughout the breakup process?
It could be a sign that your ex is actually interested in giving things another chance.
The thing to remember here is that this could also reflect an attempt to make you miss them.
If your ex acts like a total sweetheart now, it’s important not to forget that they treated you poorly when the relationship was going on.
You don’t want to get back together with someone who didn’t treat you right, do you?
It’s important to remember that your ex may not have been a bad person, but they might not have treated you the way you deserved to be treated.
If you find that your ex is acting like a totally different person now, don’t get caught up in their charm.
Until they prove themselves to you again, it’s best not to trust them completely just yet.
A good rule of thumb is to look for consistency; if your ex has always been sweet and understanding, this might be a sign that they might want to get back together with you.
And if your ex was always good to you and seems sweet and apologetic now?
That’s an amazing sign that they are ready to give it another shot!
3) You drive them crazy with a text
You see, you are not entirely powerless in this scenario, you can actually do something to get your ex to want you back!
So what can you do in this situation? Send this “No Communication” text
— “You’re right. It’s best that we don’t talk right now, but I would like to be friends eventually.” —
This one needs to be sent to your ex at the right time for it to be truly effective.
But why I like it is that you’re communicating with them that you don’t really need to talk anymore. In essence, you’re saying that you don’t really need them to play any role in your life anymore.
Why is this so good?
You induce a “fear of loss” in your ex which will trigger their attraction for you again.
I learned about this text from Brad Browning, who has helped thousands of men and women get their exes back. He goes by the moniker of “the relationship geek”, for good reason.
In this free video, he’ll show you exactly what you can do to make your ex want you again.
No matter what your situation is — or how badly you’ve messed up since the two of you broke up — he’ll give you a number of useful tips that you can apply immediately.
Here’s a link to his free video again. If you really want your ex back, this video will help you do this.
4) They make excuses to see you
Another great sign that your ex wants to give you another chance is when they make excuses to see you.
This might sound like something that would only happen in a movie, but it’s totally possible.
If your ex is making excuses to see you, even if they’re small excuses, it’s a good sign that they want to get back together with you.
Whether they need help moving something or just want to grab a coffee, this is a sure sign that your ex wants to see you.
The most obvious sign is when there is a whole excuse, and when you go to see them, it’s all of a sudden not an issue anymore and you are practically there for no reason.
Think about it: your ex definitely wanted to see you, and there’s usually only one reason for that: they want to get back together.
5) They’re jealous
The next sign that your ex wants to give you another chance is that they suddenly exhibit jealous behavior.
Maybe you told them about a person you’re seeing and they shut down and got really quiet, or maybe your ex started getting jealous when you talked about a guy who hit on you at work.
Jealousy is an indicator that they are interested in protecting their relationship with you!
Think about it: what reason could your ex possibly have for being jealous of someone you’re seeing?
The only one that comes to mind for me is that they want to get back together with you, right??
6) They send you a message saying they miss you and want you back
Okay, this one is almost too easy.
If your ex sends you a message saying they miss you and want to get back together with you, it’s pretty safe to say that they want to get back together.
Does this really need any more explanation?
I mean, I think we can all agree that when your ex tells you they miss you and want to give it another shot, they are definitely wanting to get back together.
Quite frankly, if you’re at that point where you’ve received such a message from them, you probably don’t need this article anymore, because it’s so obvious.
However, sometimes they might not be so clear about it.
Maybe they say something like “oh, we always had so much fun together”.
This is a good sign that they miss you and want to get back together with you, but they might not be saying it directly.
They might just be hinting at it!
It’s up to you to read between the lines and see what they’re trying to say.
You see, not everyone will outright say “I miss you!”, so if you want to figure out if your ex wants to give you another chance, read between the lines of what they are trying to say!
7) They spend a lot of time talking on the phone or texting you
If your ex is talking to you on the phone or texting you all the time, it could mean they want you back in their life.
And the best part?
If they’re not ignoring you completely, but seem to be checking in with you a lot, that might be a sign of wanting more.
To be honest, it could also mean that they just want to make sure that you’re doing okay after the breakup.
However, usually, when somebody spends a lot of time talking to someone, they want something from them.
If your ex is talking to you a lot, they might be trying to get back together with you.
Think about it: texting or calling someone a lot is a huge investment of time, and you usually only do that for people you’re really interested in, right?
Well, if your ex is talking to you a lot, it might be a sign that they still have feelings for you.
Or, at the very least, they miss you and want to make sure that you’re doing okay.
And the good news?
You can use this opportunity to win them over!
This relates back to what Brad Browning taught me – there are simple ways to get your ex back.
I mentioned Brad earlier, he’s an expert at helping couples work through their issues and rebuild their relationships.
With practical tips to help you get your ex back, his advice could be just what you need to make your ex want you back.
8) They aren’t seeing anyone else
This is probably the most telltale sign that your ex wants you back.
Of course, they may be being cautious and taking it slow—but if they are seeing other people or going on dates, then they’re probably not ready to take you back yet.
However, if they haven’t been dating ever since you broke up, or are single right now, the chances are pretty good that they might want to give you another chance.
Think about it: so many people dive head-first into the next relationship right after they broke up with someone.
If you notice that your ex has not been dating or meeting anyone new, then they might be trying to get back together with you.
9) They ask your friends about you
Alright, now this one is getting pretty obvious already.
A huge sign that your ex wants you back is when they start asking your friends about you, what you are up to, and whether or not you are seeing anyone.
You see, they might not reach out directly to you just yet, maybe they are nervous, but they are talking to your friends and trying to find out whether you are seeing someone or not.
If they ask your friends about you, then it might mean that they want you back in their life.
Sure, they might just be curious, but then they wouldn’t go through the trouble of reaching out to your friends and asking about you, would they?
Or, at the very least, they might want to find out how you’re doing after the breakup.
If your ex wants to know how you’re doing and if you’re seeing anyone else, it might be a sign that they still care about you.
Whatever their reason for reaching out, it’s a good sign that you still have a chance!
10) They call you when they are drunk
If your ex calls you after a night out, it’s a huge sign they still want to be with you.
Sure, it could also be because they are feeling lonely and want company.
Either way, if you’re hearing from them a lot when they’re drunk or lonely, it might be a sign that they miss you and want to reconnect with you.
Think about it: when you are drunk, you usually want to talk to the people you love, right?
So, if your ex calls you when they are completely intoxicated, you are on their mind a lot and in their subconscious.
And the good news?
When you are in someone’s subconscious like that, they still have very strong feelings for you, no doubt about it!
11) They open up about their feelings
If your ex opens up about their feelings for you, it could be a sign that they want to get back together.
This could be as simple as them saying, “I miss you” or “I’m thinking of you.”
While this doesn’t sound like much, it shows that they care and are willing to share their true feelings with you.
Don’t dismiss this as just another text message because it could mean everything.
However, as with all of these signs, they might not always be so straightforward.
Perhaps they say something along the lines of “I’m a bit sad, life just hasn’t been feeling the same lately.”
You see, they didn’t mention you in that text, but if you read between the lines, this could mean: “I regret breaking up, you made my life so much better.”
Of course, this sign is a bit tricky as it’s up for interpretation, but you know your ex better than anyone else, so if anyone can decipher what they mean, it’s you!
Go with your gut
Whatever you do, just listen to what your gut is telling you.
More often than not, your intuition will know exactly whether or not your ex wants to get back together with you and give you another chance.
But if you really want your ex back for good?
You’ll need the help of Brad Browning. I mentioned him earlier, he’s developed some incredible techniques to help rebuild the love and trust between you and your ex.
And the best part?
With his practical advice and tips, you could be in contact with your ex much sooner than you think. Are you ready to take the plunge and fight for the love you once shared together?
