To figure out if your ex still likes you, take notice of how they treat you. How often do they get in touch with you? If they still call you, it is a sign he/she is slowly coming back.
Have they been calling or texting you after the breakup? If “yes” then, it’s a true sign they’re still interested in dating you.
It is also a sign they missed you and regrets dumping you. So, if they start texting or calling you after a long time of no contact, it means they’re thinking about you and will eventually come back.
When a relationship is over, it is assumed that there will be no form of communication that will exist between ex. But if they initiate conversations with you again, it is an indicator that the relationship is not yet over. They still have feelings for you.
Another way your ex can get in touch with you can be online, either on Facebook, Whatsapp, etc. When you come online, they will always text you and respond to your text as soon as possible. It is a sign your ex secretly wants you back.
2. They look for a way to meet you again
Another major sign your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend will eventually come back is if they always look for a way to meet you again.
If they ask you questions like ” Where are you now? Are you less busy? Do you mind if we go out on a date? etc.”
These questions are signs they are looking for an opportunity to come back.
They are trying to know if you will accept them again. All they want from you is a second chance.
#3. They get drained when you are together
Another way to figure out whether your ex will eventually come back is the way they react when they see you on the way, or when you are together.
Does he/she frown or feel sad, tired or even try to explain why they broke up with you?
If so, then they regret dumping you and are likely to come back at the end.
When an ex is not over you, he or she will always feel bad whenever they see you. You can only notice that by the way they respond or act when you are together.
For instance, you may notice a kind of low self-esteem or you will notice that his/her tone is soft (soft speech) when you’ve finally met. It is an indicator that they will later come back. He/she still have feelings for you and regrets dumping you.
They are thinking about how to return in order to avoid being rejected. They simply believe that both of you can fix the relationship again. After all, there is no relationship without crisis. And they believe that every relationship problem has a solution. The sign above clearly shows your ex is coming back very soon.
#4. They still remember your Birthday
If your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend still remembers your birthday, and even wish you a happy birthday, they still love you and wants to reunite with you. It is a sign your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend will eventually come back.
They may even have taken out time to draft a very nice birthday message, waiting for that special day (your birthday).
This indicates that your relationship still has a chance. Perhaps, your ex is trying to make you forget the past so you can both live together again.

It is very unfortunate that some ex-boyfriend/girlfriend won’t even think of coming back after a breakup.
To them, the relationship is over. Therefore, there are no two ways about it.
In case you are trying to figure out the signs your ex is never coming back, the following signs will help you figure out if your relationship is over and your ex doesn’t want you anymore.

The first sign your ex is not ready to come back is that they don’t care about you anymore. Ever since you broke up with them, they have never called you again nor texted you. It is a sign your relationship is over and your ex isn’t interested in dating you anymore.
When an ex has finally decided to move on, they cease all forms of communication with you. They try their best to distance themselves from you, your friends, and family members.

When an ex decides to return everything you bought for them, it is a sign that he or she is never coming back to you. The relationship is over and they’re not ready to come back.
Although, some exes don’t return what you bought for them. Rather, they will stop using them. It clearly shows they’re no longer interested.

What may be holding your ex from coming back to you
Your ex may be afraid of being rejected, being criticized, etc. This may be the major thing that has been holding your ex from coming back.
Your ex may be a proud person. He/she is not willing to swallow his/her pride and decide to come back to you, maybe as a result of what people will say.
Here are the signs of pride in a relationship and how to deal with a proud partner.
3. Discouragement from friends
Most times, some ex refuses to come back as a result of the advice they received from their friends. Their friends may tell them not to return in order not to appear as ‘being weak’.
What to consider and do if your Ex refuses to come back
It pains so much when an ex refuses to come back, especially if you still have feelings for them.
It reduces one’s self-esteem. In fact, your heart breaks the more you see him/her. But they are certain things you should consider if your ex refuses to return.
#1. Know that you’re not meant to be with them
You are not meant to stay with your ex. One who is meant for you will never abandon you, no matter what.
Remember that love is not by force. You don’t have to force yourself on someone who doesn’t love you anymore. All you have to do is to move on with your life.
When your ex doesn’t want you anymore, don’t kill yourself. Just know that he or she is not the right person for you. They’re not your soul mate.
Therefore, move on with your life and forget him or her. Wait patiently for the right person. He/she will surely come at the appointed time.
#2. Find yourself a new lover
If your ex refuses to return, find for yourself a new boyfriend or girlfriend.
Don’t allow their absence to depress you. He or she is not the only person in the world. Move into a new relationship and live happily with your new partner.
#3. Build Yourself
Be the best of who you are. Don’t be emotionally depressed nor allow your breakup to affect your future or joy.
After all, if your ex was meant for you, he or she would have stayed. But they left because they are not meant for you.
Work on becoming a better person in your society. Never forget to start practicing self-love. Start learning how to love yourself and be happy again.
3 Things You shouldn’t do if your ex refuses to return
Don’t do the following, if your ex refuses to come back.
#1. Don’t call him or her again
If your ex has concluded that he/she is not going to return, then, it’s time to stop calling or texting them. Show them that you can live without them. Cheer up and move on with your life!
#2. Don’t block him/her on social media if possible
One major reason why you shouldn’t block your ex on social media is for him/her to see how happy and sound you are without them.
Post nice pictures and if possible tag them. It will only make them regret dumping you. It can even make him or her jealous.
So, don’t block your ex if he or she refuses to come back to you.
#3. Don’t pity yourself
Self-pity or low self-esteem shouldn’t be seen in your life, simply because your ex abandoned you. See yourself like a queen or a king that deserves the honor.
Your ex wasn’t the best for you that is why they left. So, don’t feel ashamed of yourself or depressed. Just be happy and forget your ex.

They are many ways you can figure out if your ex is unhappy or not.
Breakups pain as I have stated earlier. Everyone who has experienced it will tell you how tough it is to lose a loved one. Below are some of the signs your ex is unhappy about your breakup with them.
1. He/She does not pick nor return your calls:
If you have ever called your ex after breaking up with him or her and you noticed that he/she refused to pick nor return your calls, it simply means he/she is not happy with you.
When you text them on social media, they don’t reply. It shows they are not happy about how you broke up with them.
2. They stuck you on social media
If after breaking up with your ex, he/she started acting awkwardly, then, they are not happy.
3. Ask their Friends
Another way to know your ex is not happy is to ask his/her friends. They will be in a better position to tell you how your ex feels about you. Whether he/she is comfortable being single or not.
Know that your ex will eventually come back if you start noticing the signs discussed above.
Although it may take time for him/her to return. But how long does it take an ex to come back?
You can’t predict how long an ex will stay before deciding to come back. You are not in their mind. Therefore, they will come back, anytime they wish to return.
Your ex may be having a sleepless night because of you. They may even be expecting to see you return. But with time, everything will happen as you expected.
It may be now or later that your ex will come back. It doesn’t matter how long it will take so far as you’re seeing the signs mentioned above. All you need to do is to exercise patience if you still love them. He/she will eventually come back.
