Signs that he still loves you
08 May 2016, 21:25
Some men meet the right woman and then mess the whole thing up and spend the rest of their lives pining after that woman. Here's how you can tell if he is still wants you.
He still flirts with you.
This is an obvious sign, but it can mean multiple things. It could imply that he would definitely have sex with you again. It could also mean he is hoping that flirting will lead to sex, and sex could lead to re-kindling the relationship.
He's never had a serious relationship since you broke up.
He could just be choosy, or has not found somebody that compares to you situation. Instead, he's just drifting aimlessly, finding something wrong with every potential partner because they aren't you. Maybe he even had a few serious relationships that fizzled out because he was still carrying a torch for you. Or maybe he's careful not to commit himself to anything too serious, so he is available if there is ever another window of opportunity to get back together. He is worried if he were to get a serious girlfriend, you won't consider him as an "option."
He drunk texts you.
If he owns up to booty-texting you, it's probably just because he really was drunk. If he tries a lame excuse like ‘oops, that was my friend sorry’ then he's hiding deeper feelings. Or he actually does some pretty obnoxious friends, but the odds of that being true are in the single-digits.
He's excited when he runs into you. Most people would sneer, roll their eyes, hide or even run when they see their ex, or at least just grit their teeth through the appropriate amount of small talk and then bail. But if he runs up to you and gives you a hug like you never used to have sex and isn't that awkward... he still feel pretty great about you.
He never untagged all your old photos together.
Sure, this might just be because he's lazy or forgot, but keeping all your digital memories perfectly preserved without removal or untagging is further proof that what you had was special enough to warrant saving. And maybe worth saving in real life, too.
