Just when you’re moving on in your life and feeling hopeful about your love life again, a text from your ex foregoes any sense of closure.
“What do they want now?” is what comes to mind when your ex texts you. Hence, let’s decode the possible reasons why your ex might still be texting you.
Here’s a list of them below:
1. Read the occasion
Is it a normal hey, hello text or is it about congratulating you on your promotion? Different situations can have different meanings like the latter would usually mean a friendly encouragement towards your success, whereas if your ex texts you at 12 in the night asking if you’re awake, they are more likely to engage in an emotional or probably head down the ‘friends with benefits’ road.
2. When they broke up with you first
It’s going to occur to you why your ex is texting you, especially when they dumped you first. But experts have said that the intent may be more casual than you’re suspecting. They might want to bring up a light conversation, be friends with you again or even feel guilty about breaking up with you. It’s natural feelings that you should handle maturely.
Sometimes, couples break up in a very hasty manner, leading to a significant lack of closure. There is still some unfinished business you and your ex have to tend to, even after moving on with your lives. Your ex may feel the need to be completely done with the former relationship and battle the little issues that have been bothering them over time.
4. Wanting to get back together
“I miss you…” is a clear sign your ex is trying to get back together with you. Implying regrets about the relationship or asking to hang out with you also denotes the fact that they are eager to spend time together. Still, if they haven’t made their intentions clear, you should try asking them directly what their intentions are.
5. You haven’t been clear about your intention
There are chances your ex still sees hope in the relationship, partly because you haven’t made your intentions clear to them. They might still think about getting back together considering your actions that may denote mixed signals. So, it’s always wise to be extremely straightforward and upfront whenever you have ‘the talk’.
