Does My Ex Still Love Me? (33 Undeniable Signs He May)

The most common thing to think about after a break up is whether your ex is still in love with you.

You might catch yourself asking yourself the question: “Does my ex still love me?”

It is hard enough to accept that he doesn’t want to be in a relationship with you anymore.

This rejection is extremely hurtful. It may make it easier for you to take if you knew that he still had loving feelings for you. 

If you still love him, it may make it easier for you to accept the end of the relationship if you know that at least he still loves you. If you are reading this you are probably going through a breakup and may be wondering whether your ex still loves you. You want to know whether he ever did love you and whether what you had with him was real. 

You loved and adored him but did he feel the same way? Is he feeling as hurt as you are right now? Does he still love you too? You may be looking for small signs from your ex to know that he still loves you. This may help to make the breakup easier for you. 

Does My Ex Still Love Me?

If you are reading this you likely are going through a breakup and probably want your ex back. You may be looking for signs your ex will eventually come back or signs your ex is pretending to be over you when he really isn’t. You are looking for even a small bit of hope that he still loves you. This is normal. 

Here are some of the signs that your ex still loves you…

1. He still calls you regularly.

If you recently broke up with your ex and he is calling you regularly, this is one of the signs that your ex still has a thing for you and that they do love you. However, this does not necessarily mean that he wants you back or that he wants to resume your relationship. 

If he is calling you regularly soon after a breakup it may be one of the signs that he misses you. He probably still cares for you and is worried about you. He may also be finding it weird to not talk to you every day like you used to. It is not, however, one of the signs that he wants to be back together with you. 

If he has just broken up with you it is probably too soon to tell if he is thinking about getting back together. It is easy to misread this signal as an indication that he wants to be back together with you, when in fact it probably isn’t. 

If he calls you regularly he likely is still thinking about you all the time. If you are still filling his thoughts throughout the day, then this is one of the clear signs that he still has feelings for you. If he calls just to talk to you and does pay attention to what you tell him, he probably misses you a lot. 

If he calls you just for a chat or just to ask how your day was or if you are doing okay, then he probably misses you hugely. If he is trying to make sure that you are doing okay, his feelings for you haven’t gone away. If he is making an excuse to call you, this shows that he hasn’t let you go. No one wants to chat with someone they don’t care about. 

However, you did break up for a reason and you need to make sure that you are not just remembering the good times when you talk to him now. There were things in your relationship that didn’t work and things that were so wrong in your relationship that the only option was to split from each other. 

So, if it is clear that he still loves you, then you need to make sure that you still love him and it is the right thing to give your relationship another shot. You may be looking at your relationship through rose-tinted glasses now that it is over. Try and remember how it really was and whether it is realistic to try and fix the things that were wrong.

2. He still texts you.

If your ex still texts you, it means that he may still care about you and is still thinking about you. He may want to make sure you are okay. This is one of the signs he still likes you. 

If you are still receiving texts from him every day, it is clear that he is still constantly thinking over. He obviously isn’t over you. This may not mean that he wants a relationship again with you. You need to be careful about how you read such signals. He may miss you and still love you but not want to rush back into something. 

Just because he misses you, doesn’t mean that everything that was wrong before you broke up is now suddenly fixed, because it isn’t. He may be finding it really difficult to be apart from you, but maybe you both know deep down that it couldn’t work between you. If you think you a second shot at a relationship could be successful you need to talk to him. 

It is important that you have a serious conversation with him if it is clear that you both love each other and you are both considering getting back with each other. There is no point rushing into something again if you haven’t fixed the issues that were there before. 

3. You are the person he calls when he is in trouble.

If he reaches out to you when he is in need rather than his closest friends or family he is likely still in love with you and may one day want to resume what you once had. If you are the person he calls when he needs someone most this may be an indication that he may still love you. 

If he is in trouble and you are the person that he thinks to call before anyone else, then he still holds you close to his heart. However, you need to be careful that he isn’t just doing this because he is overly dependent on you. Maybe he just misses being looked after by you. 

You need to make sure that if you get back together with him that it is for the right reasons. If he wants you back just because he wants you to look after him, you may be making a mistake. Think carefully about it before you make any rushed decisions. He may still care and be thinking of you, but he may not treat you any better than he did before. 

4. He tells you if something exciting happens.

If your ex calls you just to tell you about special things that have happened in his life, or he calls to talk about such moments in your life, then this probably means something. Your ex might still want something with you. 

If your ex-boyfriend calls you immediately after something exciting happens in his life, you are definitely still in his thoughts. If you are the first person he thinks to tell if something new happens in his life he may love you.

This is one of the sure signs that his love for you hasn’t disappeared and he really misses sharing the important parts of his life with you. Again, it is important not to run away with this and forget about the reasons why you broke up in the first place.

5. He gets annoyed with you.

If he is getting annoyed at you after a breakup, this doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love you. If he is acting in an indifferent way toward you then this may mean that he doesn’t have feelings for you anymore. If your ex is constantly getting angry at you, this may be a sign that he still loves you. If he didn’t get annoyed he doesn’t care.

We only really get annoyed at the people we care about. So if he gets angry at you he probably does still care. He may be angry that the relationship didn’t work out and that you didn’t live up to his expectations. Maybe he once saw a future with you and is angry that it didn’t work out. Maybe he is blaming you for the relationship not having worked out. 

It may also mean that he is struggling to take responsibility for his own actions and his own emotions. But if he is getting annoyed and angry at you after a breakup, then this likely means that he does have a thing for you, and it really hurt that your relationship didn’t work out. Perhaps there is a chance of you getting back together if this is the case. 

If he didn’t care about you, he wouldn’t be acting like this. We only really get annoyed like this with someone if we care about them. 

6. He is trying to make you jealous.

After a breakup, your ex-boyfriend may try to make you jealous. He may start posting photos on Social Media platforms like Facebook and Instagram of other girls in order to give you the impression that he is doing fine without you. 

If he is blatantly trying to make you jealous, he is not acting maturely. However, this is one of the signs that he cares about you. If he didn’t care he wouldn’t bother acting in this way. It is also an indication that he is not dealing with the breakup well. He may not know how to deal with his own feelings and emotions. 

This is another one of the signs that your ex may want to get back with you. If he doesn’t usually post many photos on social media and is now suddenly posting photos that are meant to make you jealous, he may be still in love with you. 

However, this is probably not an indication that your ex wants to get back together with you.  

7. He asks your friends about you.

If your ex gets in contact with your friends to ask how you are and what you are doing, this is one of the signs that he still has feelings for you. However, this does not mean that he still loves you or wants to get back together with you. He probably still does care for your wellbeing and wants to know that you are doing okay. 

8. He still checks your social media.

If you are sure that he still looks at your social media accounts. If you know that your ex-boyfriend is still following your Instagram and Facebook accounts, he may still have feelings for you. If he didn’t, why wouldn’t he have unfollowed you? If he didn’t care he wouldn’t care about what you are up to online. 

If he likes all of the photos that you post on Instagram then this is one of the indications that your ex’s feelings for you haven’t gone away. He remains interested in your life and what you are up to. He may be checking your Instagram because he wants to check if you are okay, or simply just to see your face. 

If he no longer cared or didn’t love you anymore, then your ex would probably just unfollow you on social media and definitely wouldn’t be liking your posts, why would he? This is one of the sure signs that your ex is interested in and maybe in love with you. 

9. He holds back from giving you your stuff back.

If he is reluctant and doesn’t really want to give you your back this is one of the signs that hasn’t stopped caring about you or loving you. If you ask him for your stuff back but he doesn’t want to give it to you, this is one of the things that indicate he misses you. 

If he doesn’t want to give back that old sweatshirt that smells like you, then this may indicate that your ex may not have lost his love for you. If he was really over you and your relationship, he would have no problem in returning these things to you. If he was really trying to get over you, surely he would want these reminders gone from his life. 

If he keeps stuff that belongs to you and doesn’t want to give your things back even if you ask him to, then this is a symbol that he perhaps doesn’t want to get over your relationship. This is one of the sure signs that your ex remains in love with you. 

If he really didn’t care about you anymore your ex would have no problem in returning your things. If he no longer loved or cared about you he would likely be eager to give you your stuff back as soon as possible 

10. He insults your new boyfriend.

Man Jealous Of Couple

If your ex-boyfriend is jealous of your new boyfriend, he likely still loves you. If he isn’t nice to your new partner, then this is an indication that he may still love you and resents your new partnership with someone else. 

This is one of the sure signs that your ex is jealous and perhaps resents that you are dating someone else. If he no longer cared about you, he wouldn’t care if you were seeing someone new. If he is constantly insulting the new guy that you are seeing, your ex’s feelings for you haven’t gone away.

The very fact that he’s curious about your new relationship shows that he hasn’t properly moved on from you. He would only be jealous of your new relationships if he cares about you. If he no longer had feelings from you he wouldn’t care at all about who you were seeing. 

11. He is nasty to you.

If he shows his mean side towards you it probably means that he is still thinking about you and may even still love you. Anger often equals love. This may be an indication that he wants you back. If he is acting in this way, he probably hasn’t gotten over your relationship together. 

This may indicate that he resents the end of your relationship and perhaps blames you for it ending. He once saw a future with you and is angry that it didn’t work out how he had once hoped. If he didn’t care about your or your past relationship, he probably wouldn’t be acting in this way. 

If he shows anger about the breakup, this shows that he has a lot of feelings that have not gone away. If he is angry towards you, then he probably wished that it had worked out with you. Otherwise, he wouldn’t care enough to even get angry. 

12. He rings you randomly.

If your ex-boyfriend rings you randomly for no reason, just to talk to you, then this is a sign that he wants you back. If he just rings because he wants to talk to you, he probably misses you a lot and still cares about you. 

If your ex randomly rings you for no apparent reason, just to hear your voice, his feelings for you definitely haven’t gone away. If he was completely over you, he would have no reason to talk to you. If he is acting in this way you are likely someone he cares a lot about and is finding it really difficult to not have you in his life. 

This is especially true if he makes up excuses to ring you. Maybe he asks you for a recipe or for random advice about something, this is one of the signs that he is thinking about you. He probably doesn’t even need advice or a recipe but just uses any excuse he can think of just so that he can talk to you. 

This is one of the signs that your ex is thinking about you and your past together. He must think fondly of your time together if he wants to talk to you even when you have broken up with each other. He doesn’t want to completely cut you out of his life. 

If he wants to keep you in his life, even in a small way then this is one of the signs that he loves you and maybe regretting the breakup. However, this may not definitely indicate that he wants to jump into a new thing with you. He may miss you but he may not have forgotten everything that was wrong in the past, and everything that led to your breakup. 

13. Your friends say that he still talks about you.

This is another indication that he wants you back. If he is talking about you to your family and friends this is a sign that he hasn’t been able to let go of you and maybe even wants you back. If he lets your family and friends know that you are still in his mind, this is a clear sign that he is not over your relationship or you. 

Group Of Friends Talking

The fact that he is even talking to your friends after you have broken up with each other is one of the sure signs that your ex has a thing for you that hasn’t gone away. If he no longer cared at all about you, then he would cut you as well as your friends out of his life completely. 

He definitely cares about you and is even worried about you if he is asking your friends how you are doing and if you are okay. If he didn’t care there is no way that he would even be speaking to your friends, nevermind asking them how you are doing. 

This may be one of the signs that he is struggling to let you go and is finding it extremely difficult to cut you out of his life completely. He may not be able to see you, but he is hanging on in some way by talking to your friends and family about you. 

However, just because he is finding life without you hard, this doesn’t mean that your ex thinks that the breakup was a mistake. You both decided on a breakup for valid reasons, if not you wouldn’t have broken up in the first place. 

It is important to remember the things that led to the breakup, as these things likely haven’t just gone away. These issues need to be resolved before you rush into anything again. You need to think carefully before you make any quick decisions, no matter how hard it is to be apart from each other. 

14. He says sorry.

If he suddenly apologies and accepts responsibility for everything he did wrong in your relationship, he is probably trying to show you that he has changed and could make it work this time. He might hope that you want him back and is trying to tell you that he may want to give it another go with you. 

This is especially true if your ex has always found it hard to apologize and accept responsibility. If he is suddenly taking responsibility for what went wrong and is on his knees apologizing to you, this is one of the sure signs he cares and his feelings for you haven’t gone away. 

If he is the kind of person that apologizes lightly just to make things easy for himself, then this may not be the case. But, if he is someone that doesn’t apologize very easily he is likely doing anything he can possibly think of to try and get you back. 

However, you need to be careful not to rush into anything, even if he is apologizing to you sincerely. Just because he is apologizing now, doesn’t mean that he has changed and has suddenly resolved everything that was an issue before you broke up. Remember that there were reasons that caused the breakup, that probably remain. 

15. You see him randomly, but often.

If you happen to keep bumping into him, a little too randomly. If you both regularly hang out in the same places, you could just stop going to the places that you know the other person also goes to. Or may your ex want to see you so this is why he keeps going to these places, just so that he can see you? 

If your ex happens to start shopping in the same supermarket that he knows on your street, he likely isn’t going there just because it is on his way home from work. This is one of the sure signs he cares and his feelings for you haven’t been lost. 

16. His friends get in contact with you.

If his friends get in contact with you to give you a message from him, this is a sign that your ex still loves you and has feelings for you. However, this does not necessarily mean that he wants to be back together with you. 

If his friends tell you that he is doing fine and he has moved on from you, or that he is happy and better off now, it is likely that he told his friends to say these things to you. He may be trying to test you. If this is the case, he is likely not over you and he may still love you. 

If he is talking to people about you, then he likely is thinking about you often. If he no longer cared about you and was completely over you, then he wouldn’t be talking to people about you. There would be no reason for him to have conversations with other people about you. This is one of the sure indications that your ex is thinking about you often. 

If his friends get in contact with you and tell you that your ex is thinking of you and maybe even worried about you, then he is obviously thinking about you a lot. It is important to think about what you really want. It may be easy to remember the good parts of your past, but don’t forget about the things that were wrong.

Even if he is talking to your friends about you and asking them about you, it doesn’t necessarily mean anything more than he misses you a lot and is finding it hard to be alone. Maybe he was extremely dependent on you and he is finding it hard to cope alone. This doesn’t necessarily mean however that he has changed and you will be happy this time around. 

17. He blocks you.

If you have been trying to contact your ex and he responds by blocking you, then this likely means that your ex does not feel the same way you do. It does not mean that there is no chance of you ever getting back together, but you may push him further away if you constantly try to contact him. 

18. He unblocks you.

If he blocked you and then suddenly unblocks you within a few days, there is a good chance that he is still thinking about you. He would likely only act like this if he does still have feelings for you. He probably unblocked you because he couldn’t face the thought of not speaking to you and thus felt as if he just had to unblock you. 

However, if he does suddenly unblock you may think that “this is one of the signs my ex-boyfriend still has feelings for me.” However, it is important that you don’t act too rashly. If he unblocks you after having you blocked don’t start inundating him with messages, as this may cause him to block you again. 

It is a good sign that he unblocked you, and is a sign that he may want to remain in contact with you. He may be considering wanting to get back together with you in the future. However, don’t act too quickly as it may push him away again. You need to be patient as he is probably still unsure as to what he really wants. 

If you kept trying to contact him and he subsequently blocked you so that you couldn’t call or text him anymore, he probably wanted to regain some control by setting some rules. It is not a negative sign if he unblocks you again after blocking you. It probably means that he is finding the relationship as difficult as you are. 

He may have blocked you to stop himself from being able to call or text you. He may want to talk to you as much as you want to talk to him. But it may just be too painful for him right now. He may have blocked you on social media to prevent him from looking at your page because it pains him too much. 

Maybe he is trying to move on after your breakup or he needs some time to think by himself without distractions. Maybe he is trying to be strict with himself and not contact you as a way of dealing with the pain of the breakup. This probably means that he does still love you and is finding not being with you really hard. 

If he is trying to move on, this does not mean that there is no hope of you getting back together at some point in the future. You just need to be patient for a while and focus on yourself. You probably both need space from each other to find out what you really want. There is still hope that you may get back together in the future. 

19. He says he misses you.

If your ex-boyfriend tells you that he misses you, you might begin to think that that means that he wants to get back together with you. If he tells you he misses you, this is not a definitive sign that he wants to get back with you. It does not mean that the breakup is over. He may simply miss talking to you and spending time with you.

If he tells you he misses you, he probably does still care about you. It is normal after a breakup for you to miss each other, especially if you are used to spending all your time together. However, do not mistake this as him wanting to immediately get back together with you. Just because he misses you doesn’t mean your relationship is back on.

It is normal to miss someone, especially if you were used to spending every minute of every day together. It is going to take time to get used to being apart. Even if you may want to be back together, you both need time to figure out what you really want and whether it would ever even work between you. 

If you had major issues before, then just because you miss each other, it doesn’t mean that these things have been resolved. It is easy to forget everything that was wrong when you just miss each other so much. You need to think carefully about what you are feeling. You need to figure out whether you are better off without him. 

20. He tells you he loves you.

If your ex tells you that he still loves you, you may take this as a sign that he wants to get back together with you. However, if you have just recently broken up, he probably does still love you and is likely just being truthful about how he feels. This doesn’t mean that everything is fixed and he has forgotten about why you decided on a breakup.

If he tells you that he loves you, don’t take this as meaning that he wants to resume your relationship. This is especially important if you have just broken up with each other. You probably both need a lot of time to heal if there is ever a chance of you getting back together in the future. 

This is one of the signs your ex still has feelings for you, but it doesn’t mean that all of your problems are suddenly and magically fixed. Have an honest conversation with you. He may say that while he still loves you, he can’t be in a relationship with you. 

21. He keeps calling and texting you even though he said he wouldn’t.

If you both decided not to call and text each other for a while after your break up, this may be one of the signs you ex still loves and cares about you. If you just decided not to contact each other and he calls you a few days later to see if you are okay or just to talk to you this means he is probably missing you. 

He is probably confused and struggling to get used to being on his own after being in a relationship for so long. However, it doesn’t mean that he definitely wants to get back together with you. It doesn’t mean that the relationship is back on.

22. He keeps calling and texting you even though you told him not to.

Maybe you told him not to call and text you for a while after a breakup because you need time to think. If he keeps trying to contact you despite this, it doesn’t necessarily mean that he wants you back. He may just be finding the relationship ending really difficult.

If he is used to spending every day with you and talking to you constantly, he may be finding it strange to suddenly have no contact with you. He may just be lonely.

If he contacts you for random reasons then he is probably still thinking about you and he probably does still care. Whether or not he wants to get back together with you it is hard to tell. 

23. He isn’t dating.

If your ex hasn’t dated anyone since you this is one of the sure signs your ex still loves you. This likely means that he isn’t over you, and he may even want to be back with you. This is especially true if you have been broken up for a long time and he still hasn’t dated anyone else. Maybe he hasn’t found anyone that came close to you. 

If you have been separated for quite a long time and your ex hasn’t dated anyone new, then this is a clear indication that he isn’t over you. If you know that he hasn’t even been on dinner dates with anyone else, he is obviously struggling to forget about you.

If this is the case, and if you feel the same, you need to have a really honest open conversation with him about how you feel and how you both want to move forward. Don’t rush into things, and you need to take things slowly and carefully so that you don’t make the same mistakes that you made in the past. 

24. He keeps talking about the past.

If your ex keeps bringing up the past and happy memories that you have together. He may be thinking deeply about the past and is sorry about the way that things turned out between you. He may have considered even getting back together. 

If he is talking about the good times that the two of you shared, then he might still love you and one day may want to get into a relationship. He may in this way be trying to convince you to begin a new relationship with you. 

By saying these things he may be testing you to determine if you feel the same way as him. You need to carefully think about what you want and whether you actually want to get your ex back. 

25. He tells you he’s seeing someone new, but he’s not.

If your ex tells you that he is dating someone new and they are loving their life, but you find out he’s not, he is trying to show you that you are still on his mind. 

However, if you do start thinking about him again, make sure that you do actually want to get your ex back before you do anything drastic. 

26. He’s affectionate when he sees you.

When you are together after your breakup, he wants to make sure he is really close to you and is really affectionate with you. This is a sure sign that he is still in love with you and may want to know if you still like him in that way too. 

27. He tries to still look after you.

If your ex still looks after you when you are upset and he is the first person that tries to make you feel happier, this is a sure sign that your ex might still love you. He definitely hasn’t let go of you and wants to give it another try with you. 

Pay attention to how he acts around you if you are wondering if your ex still cares about you. If you want him back too, then this behavior is a good sign. 

28. He is dating someone like you.

If you have recently broken up with someone and he is now in a new relationship with a girl that is very similar to you, this may be a sign that he is trying to replace you because he misses you and still loves you. 

29. He wishes you a happy birthday.

If your ex texts you on occasions such as your birthday he may still be thinking about you or even love you. If he texts you every Christmas and every birthday then he is likely still thinking about you often.

30. He chats to you.

If you bump into your ex on the street and he stays to chat, this is a sign he may still have feelings for you. If he no longer cared about you or didn’t love you he wouldn’t engage in conversation with you. If he chats and has a proper conversation with you he may still have feelings.

31. He still talks to your friends.

If your ex is still in contact with your friends and even your family this may be a sign that your ex still loves you. He may remain in contact with them because he doesn’t want to lose all connection with you. This is especially true if he asks them how you are doing and what you are up to.

If your ex-boyfriend calls or texts you when he is drunk on a night out, this is a sure sign that he still loves you and hasn’t completely gotten over you. People speak the truth when they are drunk! This may be a sign that he may want to go with you again in the future.
