Fracture-ups can make for very tricky situations for both parties involved. Are you interested in a guy who’s just recently gone through a bad break-up? Are you dating a guy who you suspect of still being in love with his ex? These are some very difficult questions to answer. However, you don’t need to fret. There are some very easy signals that you could pick up to know the answer.
Discover if he’s over his ex by taking note of these blatant signs right now.
1. He’s Over Her: He’s genuinely happy for her
Hold this situation. His friends bring up some current news about his ex regarding her career advancement or a new relationship he’s in. If he expresses genuine happiness for her, then that’s a good sign that he’s most likely over their break-up.
2. He’s Not Over Her: Uses bitter language
Hold the same situation in the previous item on this list, and see if he takes another approach. If he expresses bitter language and uses negative words to describe his feelings about the situation, then that’s a red flag that he’s probably not over her yet. Retaining bad thoughts about someone can be an evident sign of not moving on.
3. He’s Over Her: He’s burned bridges
He’s blocked her on Facebook. He’s deleted her cellphone number from his cellphone. He no longer has pictures of her in his camera roll. He’s unfollowed her on Twitter and Instagram. That might be a good sign that he’s getting over her. He’s basically saying he no longer cares about getting in touch with her.
4. He’s Not Over Her: They remain, friends,
This is a very slippery slope. There are lots of couples who try to maintain friendships after break-ups, but it’s fairly evident that feelings are still there for a lot of them. If they remain friends after a break-up, it could be very troubling. Maybe a case could be made for people who were actual friends before they got into a relationship, but you’re going to have to tread lightly with this area.
5. He’s Over Her: He never mentions her
If he never brings her up voluntarily during conversations, then that’s a sign that he barely thinks about her at all. The idea of her and them being together no longer consumes his thoughts and so he ends up never talking about her. He’s moved on and his mind is preoccupied with other ideas.
6. He’s Not Over Her: He’s always bashing her
Bashing isn’t a good sign for moving on. This just goes to show that he has so much negative energy built up within him overtime for her. It also goes to show that she’s constantly holding occupations in his mind and his heart. No one who has moved on healthily will carry vulgar hatred for someone they’ve moved on from.
7. He’s Over Her: He carries positive vibes
Another subtle indication of someone moving on from a relationship is when he no longer carries any negative baggage on him. You notice that he’s emanating an aura of peace and contentedness about the whole situation. He might even be genuinely happy and have nice things to say about his ex or his breakup.
8. He’s Not Over Her: He still brings up memories of them together
If you find yourself dating a guy who’s always bringing up memories of himself and his ex, just run and end things as quickly as you can. When he talks about moments he used to share with his ex, then that is a blatant indication that he’s still carrying thoughts of them together. It makes you wonder whether he regrets their break-up or not.
9. He’s Over Her: He declares his availability
If he’s making very boisterous efforts to declare his new status as an available bachelor, then that’s a good sign that he’s probably over his ex. It means he’s ready to move on to better things and is most likely looking to get serious with another girl. Guys who are over their exes will be confident enough to put themselves out there and explore the realms of dating once again.
10. He’s Not Over Her: He makes an effort to still be around her
If he’s always asking his friends about the latest updates regarding his ex, then that’s a bad sign. But it’s another level of bad when he deliberately makes an effort to try to be around her. It means that he still thinks he could win her back or that he doesn’t want to let go of his hold of her at all.
11. He’s Over Her: He gets into another relationship
There may not be any other signs more indicative of someone moving on from an ex than this one. When he’s getting into the dating scene once again, it means that he’s ready to move on from all his old feelings and his old memories. It means that he’s ready to make new memories and establish new ties with someone new.
12. He’s Not Over Her: He still reaches out to her
This is the single most evident and most blatant sign of not moving on at all. If you find him constantly trying to get in touch with her, then that means he’s not over her. He still cares about her and about what she thinks of him. He wants to know her thoughts and feelings about the situation, and whether she feels the same way as him.
