9 Signs Your Ex Is Trying To Get Your Attention
If you’ve just broken up with your ex, then it’s likely that you’re going to be wondering if they want you back. That’s totally natural! While some people move on quickly after a breakup, others find themselves mired in doubt, confusion and heartache. It can be hard to know what an ex’s intentions are when they’re trying so hard not to show them–but here are some signs that might indicate whether or not your ex wants to get back together:
What are the signs that your ex wants you back?
If you’re wondering if your ex wants you back, the answer is probably “yes.” But what are the signs that they want to rekindle things?
- They start checking in with you. Maybe they ask how work is going or even just send a text saying hello. This could be a sign that they miss talking to you and want to catch up on old times. If this happens, don’t freak out! Just go about your life as normal and let them know that if there’s something specific they need from you (which I’m sure there isn’t), then let them know what it is.
- They ask if they can hang out with friends at some point because “it’d be nice” or something similar like that. This could be an attempt to get closer again since they think it might make things less awkward between all involved parties after having been broken up for so long already.
1. They want to show you they can change…
One of the most obvious signs your ex is trying to get your attention is that they have changed. They want to show you they can change and be the person that you want them to be, the person that you once loved. They are hoping that if they show you how much they have changed, then there might be a chance for the two of you in the future.
If this sounds familiar and something similar has happened before with your ex, remember what happened last time so it doesn’t happen again! The reason why it didn’t work last time was because they weren’t ready yet and still had some issues or problems within themselves or their life that needed resolving first before any type of relationship could work out between both parties involved (you included). You may end up feeling hurt when things don’t work out because it makes sense inside our heads why someone would change but on the other hand makes no sense at all when things start happening again just like before which leaves us confused wondering why?
2. They’ll try to ease the guilt (by presenting you with a gift or acting as your fairy godmother)
The second way they may try to get your attention is by giving you a gift or acting as your fairy godmother. Your ex may try to ease the guilt they feel by presenting you with some kind of token, like flowers or jewelry, because it’s hard to feel bad for someone when they’re giving you nice things (unless you’re being paid). They might also try to make it up to you by doing something nice for you or saying something nice one day, which will make both of your hearts skip a beat.
3. They’re trying to show you how good life could be with them
If you’re feeling like your ex is trying to get your attention, it’s because they probably are. If you’re wondering if they’ve changed and are ready to be in a relationship with you again, it might be time to take another look at the signs that they’ve changed. They’ll do things like:
- Show off their new life without any regard for your feelings about it
- Remind you of how good life could be with them
- Make sure that other people know just how happy and successful they are now
- Try to make you jealous of their new partner
4. They’ll try to tell you that they have changed, and have become more mature
They’ll try to tell you that they have changed, and have become more mature. They may say they’ve learned from their mistakes, which is why they want to make things right with you. Their new maturity will be demonstrated by their ability to listen to your side of things and not get defensive when you express your feelings about the breakup.
Many people who have been through breakups report feeling like a completely different person after they’re over—a better version of themselves than before. This could be because they realize how much work goes into maintaining relationships, so it’s easier for them not to engage in unhealthy behavior toward others now that they’re single again (or maybe because being single just sucks). Either way, if your ex says this kind of thing about themselves, remember that this isn’t necessarily true; the only thing that has actually changed is how aware they are of their own actions at any given moment—not who they are as a person!
5. They’ll try to make you jealous
If you’ve been ignoring their calls and texts, they’ll try to get your attention by being extra affectionate with other people. They may:
- Tell you about their new partner.
- Post pictures of themselves with this person on social media.
- Talk about how great things are between them, or how much fun they’re having together.
6. You’re still in their thoughts…
If your ex is trying to get your attention, they may be thinking about you. They’ve probably been thinking about you for a while, and they’re probably doing it all the time. Or maybe today is the day they decided to think about you? No matter when it was that they started thinking of you again (and no matter how long or often), if this person is making an effort to reconnect with you after their breakup then there’s a good chance that they still have feelings for their ex.
7. You’re still in their life…
They’ve kept in touch with you, but only occasionally. They might even have invited you to social events or asked about your life, but it’s been a while since they did so. When they do reach out and ask about your life, it’s usually only because something has happened that involves the other person in some way (e.g., “I haven’t seen [name] for weeks—is everything okay?”). This can sometimes feel like a subtle way to reestablish a connection between the two of you and figure out if there are any feelings left on either side.
If your ex has unfollowed you on social media and now follows you again, it’s possible that they are trying to send you a message. They may be trying to show that they’re still interested in what’s going on with you and still care about how things are going for you.
If this is the case then the person may want to get back together with the former partner or at least reestablish some kind of relationship so they can feel connected without being physically together.
If they’re doing these things, they probably want to get back together with you.
If your ex is trying to get your attention, they may be interested in getting back together with you.
When your ex was still in a relationship with you, they probably spent a lot of time working on their appearance and dressing up for the two of you. If they’re suddenly putting effort into their appearance again, it could be because they want to impress someone else—namely, you.
If your ex always seemed like the jealous type when it came to other people talking to or flirting with you, now might be the time for them to show off some new outfits or make-up skills. They could also start going out more often and making more eye contact with other people (men). These things are signs that he or she might still have feelings for you but is afraid of being rejected again if he/she tries talking about them directly so instead he/she uses indirect methods like these ones mentioned above instead.”
9 Signs Your Ex Is Trying To Get Your Attention – Conclusion
We know this can be a really tough time for you, but it’s worth remembering that your ex is only doing these things because they want you back. You need to think about how much you want them back too, and whether or not you’re willing to take the risk of being hurt again. If you are then there’s nothing wrong with trying again, but if not then we recommend leaving them behind.
