It took me a couple months to start repairing my broken heart after the toughest breakup of my life. I thought we were going to spend our lives together, but the gods of love had other plans. But I got back on my horse and kept riding. On the first date I went on after my breakup I talked about my ex. A lot. Because the fact was I was still sad about it. But I also understood that if I had my ex and my breakup on my mind there was never going to be room for new love to enter. Do you still have negative feelings around your breakup?
Is He Still In Love With His Ex? 7 Signs He Is NOT Over Her
Waking up from a dream about an ex can be jarring. The ex, at this point, is no longer playing themselves in the dream — instead, they kind of embody what first love feels like: the excitement, the passion, the desire, being desired, always wanting to be together, bubbles, that wonderful feeling. What was the breakup like?
But he’s seeing someone else? I don’t understand this. He knows I still love him so why would he say these things to me?? Is he just playing with my feelings?”.
Subscriber Account active since. The idea that your partner might not be over their ex isn’t exactly one that most people would want to think much about. And once you see them clearly, it might be difficult for you to continue to move forward pretending that you don’t. We rounded up some big signs that the one you love may still be hung up on their ex.
If your partner doesn’t seem to be fully present with you when the two of you are spending time together, that’s one potential sign that they might be thinking about someone else. Though being preoccupied doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re not over their ex, it could. Stevens said that you can feel the distance between the two of you, even though you’re physically together. He added that it’s because they’re “always with that ex” mentally, even though they’re likely no longer always with their ex physically.
They might not go out of their way to defend the ex, particularly when there’s no reason to do so. Not only does your partner want to defend their ex, but they also look for reasons to talk about them. And the anecdotes look like they’re designed to tell you things about great restaurants or great vacations or whatever, but they’re really just so he can talk about her because he wants to talk about her because we all want to talk about people that we love.
It might not always be obviously about that person — their ex — but that person is always a part of the story. If your partner seems to be dragging their feet when it comes to committing to you and your relationship, that too could be a sign that their past isn’t fully in the past. However, if your partner says that their lack of commitment is from being “burned” in the past, then you can guess it has to do with an ex.
Moving on when you’re still in love with your ex
I had an on-off relationship with a man for two years. He was the one that always called it off, but would always return. I loved him completely and still do. Six months ago he moved on from me and got a new girlfriend. I found this incredibly painful. Three times in the last six months, after drinking, he has smothered me in attention, tried to have sex with me, and once told me he loves me.
But, according to professional dream analyst and author Lauri Quinn Loewenberg “This can be someone who was in your life 30, 40, or 50 years ago, but you still find yourself so then you’re thinking, ‘Maybe my ex really does wanna take me back. If you dreamed about your ex dating someone else.

You would pull me in front of you and wrap your arms around me, kissing the top of my head as I chattered while we shuffled forward together. It never felt awkward when we walked this way. Later, years later, we would walk this way around our neighborhood.
Evening strolls as the sun set.

Breathless: Dating Is Impossible when You’re Still in Love with Your Ex

There I was in a perfectly happy relationship with a great guy. He was exactly the kind of guy everyone assumed I’d end up with, but there was just one little problem — I was struggling to see our future together because my heart was stuck in the past. I had moved on from my ex, but I still wasn’t over him. It’s confusing to be in a healthy relationship with a wonderful person yet still feel drawn to your former person.
There were little moments that really slapped me in the face, like driving down the road and catching my eyes dart to a certain car to see if it’s his and feeling disappointed when it wasn’t. And there were bigger moments that weighed heavy on my heart, like dreaming about him while sleeping next to my boyfriend and waking up feeling guilty for the dream but grateful for the time together.

Feelings for my ex were holding me back from going deeper in my relationship, and my happy relationship was keeping me from going back to my ex.

My ex Boyfriend still loves me, but wants to date another girl; unsure of what he wants
By Chris Seiter. Your ex boyfriend appears to be happy with his new girlfriend yet he still ends up contacting you behind the scenes. Well, with this guide I plan on answering every single one of those questions. First though, I think its important that we really take a look at your situation. This guide assumes that you and your ex boyfriend have broken up and he has moved on to another girl.
What I would really like to explore is the reasons why he may potentially talk to you when he has another girlfriend and believe me when I tell you that there could be a lot of different reasons for that.
I found out later that my ex did still love me, and when he told me it was over, it was by your breakup that he can’t imagine himself dating someone new. This is one of the weirder signs he wants you back, but hear me out.
Now that your ex-boyfriend is seeing another girl after the breakup with you, what should you do to get him back? Seeing your ex with someone else hurts, and is probably killing you. It might even make you wonder whether your ex really even loved you at all in the first place. And this makes you feel anxious and even more eager to reach out to him. However, do NOT make the mistake of reaching out to him now.
If your idea of reaching out is to confront him about the new girl and whether he had cheated on you…. Or to ask him to give you a chance and that you will change…. That will only push him further away and will make him not want to be in contact with you at all. With that said, there is still hope in getting your ex-boyfriend back.
To my Ex: I’m in love with someone else, but I still miss you.

You figure the easiest way to do this is to send her a non threatening text message to check up on her.
It wasn’t a red flag for me; instead, it felt smooth and reassuring, the result “If you are not over your ex and you are dating someone new, comparison is inevitable. or ‘love drug’ to help you heal, but unless you’re percent available, or complicated feelings that may still exist about old relationships.
Since your anxious brain gives you unimaginable anxiety, you start coming up with thousands of different things to say and do similar to the day of the breakup. But somehow none of them seem good enough. All your viable responses to your ex seem either too needy and demanding or non-caring and cold. Please note that this article is written from a female perspective and that it applies to both genders as long as your ex is the dumper. If your ex said he still loves you and you find yourself utterly confused and worried, try not to get too excited and hopeful.
Your ex could be sending you breadcrumbs and attempt to extort what you likely already lack — validation. You must understand that when your ex says he still loves you, he could, in reality, be projecting his weakened emotional state onto you. This means that your ex could be after your emotional strength and approval—which would empower your ex immensely.
You see, love creates exceptionally powerful emotions of acceptance. In reality, all that increases is his ego.
