12 ACTUAL Signs Your EX Wants You Back! What to do then?

The course of life never runs smoothly. Ups and downs are the natural part of the game we call life. It happens that sometimes what we don’t want to do, we have to do, consciously or unconsciously. Sometimes, imbued with the flow of emotions, we make decisions and then repent of our choice.

Relationships, an integral part of life, are doomed with such destiny. While they are going, they will go to the seventh sky, despite all the hurdles and issues. If they don’t, they will decline every step and eventually will meet the fate they don’t deserve.

People are unknown to each other, they meet, they come close, more close, and bound themselves in relationships. They have their great ambitions and aspirations in their relationships.

But somehow things change and one of those partners, or even both, fed up with each other and separates their paths.

They hardly know that emotions, especially anger, are not permanent. In their unpleasant mood, they bid farewell, after some time, they realize that what they have done was wrong, but now, “It is useless to cry over spilt milk.” Bumble and uncertainty prevail all over.

They will share their downer attitude with the world by posting status updates like, “I feel so empty” or “I wish someone were here.” Basically, they will do everything to convey their message that they want you back, but instead of saying it straightforwardly, they will give hints.

These are the 3 signs your ex secretly wants you back. 1

They Ask About You From Your Friends.

They ask about your well-being and what’s going on with you, not from you, but your friends. They show their concern about you. They do it unconsciously, but somewhere inside them, they hope that their feelings will be conveyed to you.

If you had some mutual friends before the breakup, they will come to you with a message that your ex is still having feelings for you and it seems they want you back.

Finding Ways To Be Close With You.

If your ex still likes you and wants you back in their life, they will continuously behave with you warmly and in a flirty manner. Their tone will be soft and courteous towards you. 

If you are still friends with them, they will whisper in your ears to be close to you. 

You may also find that they miss no opportunity to touch you. For this, brushing shoulder with you and trying to hug you can be often observed. This is certainly not rocket science, but a clear sign that your ex wants you back.

Reminiscent about old relationship.

They will always like to reminisce about their old relationship. As your ex will find it hard to move forward without you, they will always describe the charm of old days and old times. 

In their description of sentiments, elements of nostalgia will be evident. They will discuss their old relationship with your common friends and when they come across you, they will not hesitate to hypnotize the scenario with their mixed tragic and comic feelings.

That will talk about what went wrong. They will mention fate and destiny. Even they will say what has been done should not have been.

Display Of Their Changed Version.

Display of their better version is the worth utilizing attribute of those who want their ex back in their life. It is certainly not their cobweb to hunt for but they literally are ashamed and bring positive changes to give their relationship a second chance.

If they change themself, they will certainly display it. During calls and texts or when they come across you, they will talk about their mistakes and acknowledge them, too. They will tell you that these were those who were at fault. By this, they will try to clear the unpleasant air between you and their conscience.

If your ex calls you and tells you how things changed or how they could be different, it is a clear sign that they want you back in their life.

Jealousy And Envy.

It is hard for anyone to see their ex flirting with someone else even after a breakup if they want them back. As it depends on the extent of your ex, it can be disheartening or heartwarming to see them acting in this way.

For example, if your ex gets irritated or shows prejudice when they observe that you are with someone else, flirting, or just in an overly friendly mood, it is a confident sign you are still in their heart and mind. 

They are not over you. They have feelings for you. If you give them more time, they will open their heart for you to peep deep through it.

Finding Them In Old Places.

You will see them on your whereabouts. If once or twice it happens, it can be a coincidence. But if you keep running into them where you go, there is something to note. It is happening because they are keeping tabs on your whereabouts. 

Nobody has time to visit places where they have none to do but those who are crazy about their love. If you find them so crazy even after the breakup, they definitely want you back.

Finding them on your whereabouts, if you ask them what they are doing there, they will probably come up with clues that they miss you. Even if they don’t admit they miss you, their body language will tell you the truth.

Dialing You While Drunk.

Many researchers have confirmed that drunk humans speak the truth if they are not married. (As it happens, men usually don’t admit to their wives that they are drunk.)

If your ex calls you drunk and talks about the old days in a poetic tone, it is a sign they miss you. As they are not afraid to tell about their feelings, they will not tell a lie. 

Rather, whatever they will say, will be true.

Sometimes drunk dialing seems funny if there is a one-time babe affair. But if your ex calls you anytime, especially at midnight, while liqueur passes through their lips, it is a sure sign that you are still on their mind and they want you back in their life.

There is no doubt that booze can assist our inhabitants, but if your ex dials you to confess their undying feelings for you, it is not the booze speaking. In such a condition of theirs, you will find them pouring their heart out. It is the sign you want to be clear about.

Their Pleasant Compliments.

To earn a soft corner in your heart, your ex will give you pleasant compliments. As a matter of fact, those who are in heart and prevail over senses look and feel beautiful.

As they still have feelings for you and are waiting for you to come back, they will keenly observe you, whenever you put on something special or look prettier than before, they will pass a compliment and they will be all honest and true in their access and assessment.

Finding subtle changes in your wearing or a bit changed hairstyle will be noticed and appreciated by them. Such a noticeable gaze and attention of theirs is the evidence that they are waiting for you.

They Confess, They Miss You.

The ultimate one, which is the clearest sign that your ex is waiting for you and wants you back, is their straightforward confession that they miss you. Though according to certified emotional intelligence practitioners, it is less observed yet it is found among those who desperately want their ex back in their life.

More chances are, they will confess it when they are drunk and are on call with you or when they find you enough to describe their feelings solely and passionately.

What To Do?

If you find your ex a good fellow, there is nothing bad in reconciliation with them.
