Dating your ex is like

It can be hard to figure out if he still has feelings for you – or if he really doesn’t like you anymore. When two people break up, it’s almost a guarantee that they’ll both still have feelings for each other – they just don’t want to be in a relationship anymore.

That’s because in the period immediately following a breakup, confusion is at an all time high. Prove to yourself that you don’t need him to survive – that you’re perfectly fine on your own.

You’re most liable to do and say things that you’re going to regret later – and contact with your ex is only going to make the situation worse. Not only does it give you desperately needed time to get over him…

They’re allowed to say whatever they want, and do whatever they want – but only they get to decide what it really means – and you don’t get a say.

So he’ll pull crap like sending you drunk texts one night – but then ignoring your texts for the next week.

You know what he’d be doing if he was truly over you? People who are hurting lash out in tons of different ways – but it all stems from the unresolved feelings they’ve got inside. Nothing good can come from engaging with his negative emotions – and he’ll probably draw you into his negativity as well. So give him the space to get over his negativity, and eventually he’ll come around.

So if he’s raging, or bellowing, or expressing his anger – let him. I hope this article helped you see the hidden signs that your ex is still in love with you.

One thing to remember is that even if your ex still has feelings for you, he might not act on them, and the longer you stay apart the more likely it is that his feelings will fade forever.

The world is divided into two groups of people: those who think it's OK to date a friend's ex and those who believe it's completely off-limits.

Or push to spend time with you – before ignoring you for weeks?

This kind of behavior might seem confusing in the moment – which makes sense – because confusion is the exact emotion it’s growing out of.

He’s confused about you – what he thinks, what he wants, and most importantly, what he feels about you (2). Is he posting stuff on Facebook because he knows it’ll touch a nerve?
