Ending a relationship with your significant other rarely goes smoothly and always involves a layer of emotions on both sides. After it’s all over, you may have cooled off and realized it wasn’t so bad or that you should get back together. But you must resist this urge and let go of the past. After all, you two broke up for a good reason.
Either way, here are eight sure signs that you’re still not over your ex.
You always talk about her
Let’s say you found a new GF, you really like her, but you can’t stop mentioning your ex all the time. Talking about your ex relationship with your current girlfriend is normal, but you should do it in small chunks. This is the first clear sign that your old flame still has some residual feelings for you.
You keep her photos
It’s okay to have a few photos of your ex, but not to have them everywhere. If your new girl sees this shrine to your ex, she’ll dump you in an instant, so like us, put the pictures where she can’t find them.
Stop comparing the two
If your new lady says she does or says something like or worse than your ex, Billy, my boy, you have a problem. This is a clear sign that your feelings for her are still hot. A guy should never compare his current partner with an ex-girlfriend, remember that!
You say her name
If you start calling your girlfriend Sam when her real name is Leslie or something else, you’re in trouble. Once or twice, maybe you’ll be forgiven, but three times and more – you’re a dead man walking. Oh, and if you do it in bed, pack your bags and leave in the morning.
You keep her relics
If you still have photos, memorabilia and small gifts that your ex gave you, it’s a bit suspicious. Don’t do that to your current partner.
You never mention your ex
This type of behavior can be just as unhealthy as frequently mentioning your ex. In your previous relationship, you have good and bad moments that are useful or funny to remember now. But, if you don’t want to talk about them, it might send the wrong signal to your partner. That signal says, “I haven’t let her go yet.”
You’re still stalking your ex online
Do you occasionally catch up with your girl when you “check” your ex’s Facebook page or Instagram? You have FOMO, and that’s understandable, but dude, it’s been a year. Do you really want to know where she went two weeks ago and how her kitty cat is doing? Okay, okay, you can check on the cat once in a while but stop cyberstalking your ex.
You text your ex frequently
If you break up on good terms, you won’t see each other as monsters, and after a while you can start texting, exchanging memes, and laughing again. And you know what this leads to – a reunion. If you’re already in a relationship, it’s something neither of you want to do. So unless you both are single, don’t date your ex. You are making the person you are now worse.
