4 Definite Signs Your Man Is STILL In Love With His Ex
There's no real victory and finding a new boo that's still got one foot in the door he told you he closed before you. If you're playing for keeps and not for a lease, read on to see if your man fits the description. If so, don't say you didn't see the red flags...
YOUR MAN IS STILL IN LOVE WITH HIS EX IF HE...
#1Keeps gifts that she gave him that he doesn't use
For anything that your man is no longer using that's just hanging around, that he REFUSES to throw away; there's a sentimental reason. Any bracelet, football, hat, etc. If it came from her and he doesn't want to let it go, he still hasn't let her go. Why else would he be holding on to an item linked to a moment in time with someone else? Because there's a feeling linked to that someone else, likely serious ones.
#2Still has a "We don't talk every day, but call me if you need me," friendship with her.
No, this is NOT okay!!! We're not speaking generally of friends of the opposite sex, we're talking exes. Ex Lover, Ex confidant, Ex ride-or-die, Ex "Bae". If that ex still has access to your man at any moment she needs him, then she also has a pipeline straight to his heart that hasn't hit the shut off valve. That's called love. He's still her caretaker, which means he can't possibly be an adequate caretaker of your heart.
#3 Hates her for the heartache she caused him.
We've been hurt. All of us. But once we're truly over the person who hurt us, we have a sense of gratitude for the lesson we don't have to learn ever again. We can be done with them, never want to talk to them again, be disgusted by the thought of them, but we don't hate them. For we know that the opposite of love isn't hate, it's apathy. Hate is just love in denial.
#4 Ever refers to her new man as anything insulting
Unless he and the ex's new man have personal history outside of the ex, there should be no resentment in his tone when referring to her new man. "Lame" "Fckboy" "Square" etc. Him saying any of these lets you know he's not happy with what her new man has attained, and if he's not, then clearly he feels that what her new man attained should still belong to him. Don't forget, this also applies to body language as well. Him rolling his eyes, shaking his head, huffing and puffing like an intense thought crossed his mind is signs he hasn't let go.
