If you are coming off of a hard breakup, you may not know what to do next. And if you stumbled upon this post, what you really want to know is, “How do I get my ex back after a breakup?” Luckily, there are a few things that you can do to test if there is still hope for you and your beau:
Talk to your partner and pay attention to their response and reaction to what you say. If they listen without interruption, and even drop what they are doing to hear you out, then they are likely still interested. Signs like these indicate a willingness to give their time to you.
Wear a new piece of clothing, and watch and listen for a compliment or even a statement indicating that they notice that you have changed. Any compliment is a good indicator of interest.
Direct your conversation towards the breakup. If your partner uses language and phrases which indicate that they are remorseful about the breakup this is a good sign that they still like you.
If your partner calls you a lot for small talk, it can be a sign of continued interest. Your partner may also schedule a call, but might not end up calling. If they apologize and offer up an explanation, it’s because they feel bad about disappointing you. This concern is a sign that your opinion of him matters, which is a sign of interest.
Start to dangle other dating prospects in conversation, and see how much interest your partner takes. Getting very quiet, or very inquisitive is a sign that your ex is still holding interest in you (and they’re getting jealous!). Asking your friends about who you may be seeing is also a strong indicator that he still wants you.
Go the other way and ask about who your partner is interested in. Changing the subject, hiding it, or in some way deferring the question is a strong indicator that you are the person they are interested in.
Eye contact is also a good indicator, so testing his interest through making eye contact is a strong way to gauge their interest.
Flirt with your ex partner occasionally and see if your partner will flirt with you back.
Try to have a conversation, over email or text, maybe once or twice a week to stay on his mind. Do not overdo it, otherwise he will stop responding to you.
Physical contact is a definite sign of having feelings. Just be sure to be direct, but not too pushy in you body language.
Hopefully, after reading this article, you’re no longer asking yourself, “How do I get my ex back after a breakup?” These are just a few strategies to gauge interest so you can get your ex back if he’s open to it.
