I recently read an article that listed signs that someone is not over their ex love. And since many of you have returned back to the dating scene I thought I would share them with you, and then I will briefly give you my thoughts. So here are the signs your new love interest isn’t over their old one:
- They talk about them often.
- They are searching for them online, and checking out their Facebook OFTEN.
- They keep in touch them.
- They get annoyed when finding out their old love is dating someone new.
- It’s been less than three months since their break up.
- They haven’t ended the relationship with their ex.
I’ve actually read research that says if your partner keeps bringing up and/or talking about someone from work, school, or etc. it is a sign they may be cheating. In this case we are assuming you aren’t married and just beginning to date. If they continually talk about their ex then guard your heart, because they likely still have feelings for them I don’t think this means you have to “ditch” them, but you should be careful.
If they are searching for the ex online or hitting their Facebook on a regular basis then “buyer beware.” But remember, we are all curious so don’t jump to conclusions if it is just an occasional glance at the social media sites. Now, if they are constantly in touch with the ex through Facebook, email, and even talking on the phone then I would recommend you tell them to give you a call when they are ready to move on!
The last three in the list above seem obvious, but in case you are like me and a slightly naive lets talk about them. If your new love interest gets visually upset that their ex is in a new relationship then take three steps back, turn to the right, and make a run for it. Yes, we all get a little jealous even when we don’t want an ex, but if it goes beyond that then their heart is still on the mend.
The last two can be combined, because they are obviously a huge red flag! If it has been less than three months since your new beau or beauty’s breakup then they aren’t ready to move on just yet. I’m not saying you shouldn’t move forward, but just know you are rolling the dice on getting your heart broke. And if they are still in a relationship then they are NOT your new love interest…you are their mistress or gigolo! I know they may be promising you that one day you’ll be together forever, but it’s likely you will be waiting forever for that to happen. Run like your ass is on fire!
