2. Your Ex Keeps Asking Your BFFs About You
If your ex wants to know how you’re doing, they may not be bold enough to contact you directly, opting to ask your girls about you instead. It’s one thing if your BFFs bring you up in casual conversation, but it’s another if your ex is always finding ways to talk about you with your friends.
3. You Keep Randomly Bumping Into Your Ex
If you share mutual friends, running into your ex is probably unavoidable. However, if your ex is always showing up everywhere you go, all signs point to the fact that they’re trying to see you on purpose or stalking you. Either way, it’s problematic.
4. Your Ex Wants To Know Why You Broke Up
There’s nothing wrong with reminiscing on the past and the good times. But if your ex keeps asking to meet up to discuss what happened for…um…closure, they’re definitely not over you yet. Moving on means not caring about what went wrong or needing to prove how much they loved you.
5. Your Ex Gets Jealous About Your New Bae
If your ex is truly unbothered, they wouldn’t be concerned about your new boo. It’s okay for them to want you to be happy. But your ex shouldn’t be jealous when they see you hanging out with someone new or posting pics with your S.O. on social media.
