5 Signs Your Ex Can't Stop Thinking About You, Dating Coach Says




<p>If you're not over your ex, you may be wondering if they feel the same way. However, the <a rel="noopener noreferrer" href=" target="_blank">unspoken rules of breakups</a> can make it difficult to broach the subject directly, instead leaving you to look for clues that could signal a lingering interest. That's where <a rel="noopener noreferrer external nofollow" href=" target="_blank">dating coach</a> <strong>Jacob Lucas</strong> comes in. He says there are five definite signs that your ex can't stop thinking about you. Here's what to look out for.</p>

<div class="number-head-mod number-head-mod-standalone">
<h2 class="header-mod">
<div
class="number">1</div>
<div class="title">They check on you.</div>
</h2>
</div>

<p>In a <a rel="noopener noreferrer external nofollow" href=" target="_blank">TikTok video</a>, Lucas says the first sign that your ex is still interested in you is that they periodically slide into your DMs, just to say hello.</p>
<p>"They will randomly message you just checking up on how you've been. Why should they care if they’ve truly moved on? The only reason they're asking you this is to start a conversation with you to see if that conversation leads to anything else," he says.</p>
<!– slidetitle start –>
<div class="number-head-mod number-head-mod-standalone">
<h2 class="header-mod">
<div
class="number">2</div>
<div class="title">They always wish you a happy birthday.</div>
</h2>
</div>

<p><img decoding="async" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-478896" src=" alt="Cropped shot of a group of friends celebrating a birthday outdoors" width="1200" height="800" /></p>
<p>If they consistently remember your birthday and mark the occasion with a text, phone call, or post, this is another sign that your ex is thinking of you.</p>
<p>"If every single year without fail they are messaging you 'happy birthday,' they want you to know that they are thinking about you on your special day," says Lucas.</p>
<!– slidetitle start –>
<div class="number-head-mod number-head-mod-standalone">
<h2 class="header-mod">
<div
class="number">3</div>
<div class="title">They "like" your posts.</div>
</h2>
</div>

<p><img decoding="async" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-428689" src=" alt="Woman on her phone looking at social media." width="1200" height="800" /></p>
<p>Lucas says that to find out if you ex still misses your social media posts, make a quick review of them. If they still "like" your posts, chances are they're still thinking of you often.</p>
<p>"The reason why they do this is they want you to see their name pop up so that they stay in your mind and they hope that you start a conversation with them," he claims.</p>

<!– slidetitle start –>
<div class="number-head-mod number-head-mod-standalone">
<h2 class="header-mod">
<div
class="number">4</div>
<div class="title">They share things that remind them of you.</div>
</h2>
</div>

<p><img decoding="async" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-453675" src=" alt="beautiful woman on phone" width="1237" height="848" /></p>
<p>When your ex is in their feelings about missing you, they may "randomly message you saying they've seen something that reminds them of you," says Lucas.</p>
<p>It is not the point of such a message to tell you what someone else saw. Instead, it's a thinly veiled effort to re-engage your attention, he suggests.</p>
<p>"If that person is over you, do they really need to tell you that? No. They're doing it because they can't stop thinking of you," the dating coach says.</p>
<!– slidetitle start –>
<div class="number-head-mod number-head-mod-standalone">
<h2 class="header-mod">
<div
class="number">5</div>
<div class="title">They can't stop looking at you.</div>
</h2>
</div>

<p><img decoding="async" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-375033" src=" alt="group of young people chatting and laughing on a party." width="1200" height="800" /></p>
<p>Last but not least, Lucas says you'll know your ex can't stop thinking about you if you see them out in public, and "they can't stop looking at you." This corroborates research, which shows that <a rel="noopener noreferrer external nofollow" title="Eye Contact Is a Two-Way Street" href=" target="_blank" data-citation="true">prolonged eye contact</a> can signal and even stimulate attraction.</p>
<p>So, if you miss your ex and notice that they're doing any of these five things, the feeling might just be mutual. The conversation about rekindling the relationship may not be out of reach after all.</p>
