How to Tell if Your Ex Wants You Back - 10 Signs

Aug 23, 2008
You've broken up with your ex and since that day you have experienced little but regret. If only she felt the same regret as you, then winning her back would be much easier. Flat out asking her may be too risky, so it's time for a more subtle plan.

First, you ought to think about the circumstances that preceded the break up. Were they extreme? If the break up came about because of a bunch of small things that snowballed into something big, she probably regrets breaking up too. But it gets less clear if there was a lot of anger and hostility in the break up. If this describes your situation, then you have to look for signs from your ex that she desires to come back.

1.) Is your ex having a difficult time adjusting? If so, then it implies that you are still an important part of her life. It means that she too is suffering from this loss.

2.) Does she prefer to stay friends with you? This signals a desire to keep a connection with you. Remaining friends with her is very advantageous. It keeps a channel of communication open. Sooner or later, you'll be able to use this to get her back.

3.) Is she inclined to be apologetic for the things that she said during the heat of the break up? This hints at a hope for reconciliation.

4.) Does she offer compliments about you when you talk? Even a roundabout compliment about your tie or your new car is meaningful.

5.) Is your ex pursuing a new relationship? If there hasn't been any relationships since the breakup, perhaps it was too hard to let go of the old times she had with you. Perhaps no one else can measure up.

6.) Has she kept the lines of communication open? Put differently, both of you readily communicate back and forth.

7.) Do her eyes and body language reveal anything? If there's still a love interest, her brows will slightly lift and her eyes will widen upon detecting your presence. You should also look for dilated pupils. Likewise, look for prolonged eye contact during conversation and small adjustments to her hair when she first sees your presence.

8.) Mirroring is still another sign of interest. When she unconsciously mimics your body language or your mood, she is mirroring. Rhythm, loudness and the tone of your speech may also be mirrored.

9.) Does she use the word "you" a lot in her speech? If so, she is speaking in the second person which is a more intimate way to communicate.

10) Is she still doing those small favors for you like she did in the past? If she wanted you out of her life, she just wouldn't bother.

Hopefully some of these signs apply to your case. If so, your outlook is good.
