Signs An Ex Girlfriend Is Still Interested In You

What’s that old saying?

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus?

All the poets and experts seem pretty set on the fact that we are from different planets. In fact, I can’t tell you how many men have come by Ex Girlfriend Recovery trying to beg for my help to dissect things their exes have said or done.

And I can’t help but notice that all of their questions and concern revolve around one primal fear, the fear of being unwanted.

You see, most of you still want to feel loved by your exes (maybe some of you don’t but most of you do.) However, it’s not like they teach a class on what signs to look for to see if your ex girlfriend is still interested in you.

UNTIL NOW!

Hi, I’m professor Chris and this is intro to… No, I am just kidding!

One thing I want to make clear though is by the time you are finished reading this article you should have a very good idea of what signs there are of your ex becoming interested in you again.

The Idea Behind Knowing If My Ex Is Still Interested In Me

I’m not one of those “relationship guru’s” that is going to make a bunch of claims and say I know everything there is to know. I think men and women like that miss out on a lot because they are too high and mighty to admit that they don’t know everything.

I for one, do not know everything.

But you find yourself in a very precarious position where you are trying to determine if she still has feelings for you and I am not about to make a claim without proof to back it up.

So, if men are indeed from Mars and women are indeed from Venus then the smartest course of action is to throw all ego to the side and bring in some actual “Venusians” in to help.

That’s where the sister site to EGR comes into play, Ex Boyfriend Recovery.

For those of you who don’t know I actually have two websites dealing with breakups. One of the websites is this fun one you have here in Ex Girlfriend Recovery.

The other is called Ex Boyfriend Recovery which basically deals with women who are going through breakups. About six months ago I started a fun little Facebook Group for Ex Boyfriend Recovery and it has grown to have over 1,200 members (it’s still growing.)

Well, I decided to ask the women of that Facebook Group to see what kind of signs an ex would have to exhibit to be interested in you,

As you can see from that picture I submitted the question to them 16 minutes ago and have already gotten about 18 responses!

By the end of the day it’ll probably be over 100.

Now, here is the problem.

Neither you or I have the time or patience to sit through and look over 100 signs an ex girlfriend is interested in you but you probably will have the patience to look through 9 signs.

So, drumroll please…

Here are the top 9 signs that your ex girlfriend is still interested in me… ahem… I mean you!

9 Signs Your Ex Girlfriend Is Still Interested

I’m not the type of guy who makes bulleted lists and doesn’t elaborate on them. So, here is how this particular article is going to work.

I am going to give you a quick roundup of the signs in one place, some men don’t like reading long articles, and then after I have done that I am going to take each sign individually and flesh it out a bit.

My Old Girlfriend Says She Loves Me – Is it True?

Oh, and just so you know I am a big believer in showing you proof that I am not making these up off the top of my head so I will be screenshotting an excerpt of the Facebook comment that lead me to “create the sign” if that makes sense.

Ok, here are the nine signs you need to be looking for,

  1. Response Time
  2. Talking To You About Things You Are Interested In
  3. Initiating The Texts
  4. She Will Praise You
  5. Can’t Resist Flirting With You
  6. Agrees To Meet Up With You
  7. Sending A Lot Of Emojis
  8. Keeping In Contact With Your Friends And Family
  9. She Can Nag You

From the top.

Sign #1: Response Time

I’d like to draw attention to the two comments above.

Audrey and Davea here make some good points. Most men assume that just because an ex is responding to their texts it means that they are interested.

WRONG!

As Audrey so elegantly put, “I respond just because I am overly polite.”

However, Davea cuts right to the heart of the matter with her response time comment. Basically what she is saying here is that if a woman is quick to respond to your messages it is a very good sign!

Sign #2: Talking To You About Things You Are Interested In

With this particular sign we are focusing more on the actual conversation that you are having with your ex girlfriend.

If you know for a fact that she despises talking about science fiction but she engages you with a conversation about it then you might be onto something.

Sign #3: Initiating The Texts

This one is pretty straightforward. If you find that your ex girlfriend is the one initiating the text messages with you it might be a good sign.

Now, to take this a step further I want to add that Davea seems to have the right idea here with the good morning/good night comment.

I’ll never forget that when I was dating my wife she was always the one to text me first thing in the morning.

In other words,

Good Mornings = I Like You

Sign #4: She Will Praise You

I love this comment from Beth because she gives us the true details on what she does when she is still interested in a man.

She praises the following,

  • Work
  • Interests
  • Appearances

In addition to “praising” him she also,

Asks a lot of questions about him

  • Makes an extra effort to wear something he has complimented before
  • Gets “giddy”
  • And can’t help but smile a lot

Sign #5: She Can’t Resist Flirting With You

If you ever find yourself wondering,

“Is my ex girlfriend even interested in me again”

Then this might be the sign to really pay attention to.

Flirting is important.

Basically any comment she makes that can be taken as “flirtatious” it’s probably a good sign especially since she is your ex and it probably means a little more coming from her in this case.

Phoenix is also kind to point out to not get too caught up if your ex calls you for help since it can literally go either way.

Sign #6: Him Actually Meeting Up With You

Does this comment look familiar?

It should because I literally used the comment for “sign #1” except this time instead of talking about responding to your “reach outs” I am going to be talking about the “constantly agreeing to go out with you” part.

Now, I do want to make one thing really clear.

Having her agree to meet up with you one time doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things.

What we are really looking for is consistency.

Audrey alluded to that in her comment above by using the word “constantly.”

So, if she is constantly agreeing to a date that is a good sign.

 Sign #7: Sending A Lot Of Emojis 

To be honest this is one of those answers that shocked me.

I have never been one to adopt emojis or bitmojis but if the women say that, that is what matters then who am I to matter.

I am guessing that the emojis have to be constantly in the messages and not just occur one time to really make a difference here.

Sign #8: Keeping In Contact With Your Friends And Family

The important thing to remember here is determing if she was friends with your friends before you dated.

I am assuming that she wasn’t friends with your family before you so if she keeps in touch with your family then that is obviously a good sign.

But keeping in touch with mutual friends might not matter as much unless she wasn’t friends with these people people before she dated you.

Sign #9: Nagging You

This is another one of those signs that I never would have thought of.

According to Jeri she “nags” men that she likes to become better versions of themselves. If you find that your ex is constantly pushing you to be better then that is probably a very good sign!

What’s Next? 

One thing you are obviously curious about is if your ex is still interested in you.

She must have done something to make you think that, right?

Well, if that is the case then I don’t want you to be shy and let us know what that thing is below in the comments. My team and I answer everyone.

We don’t always answer instantly but we always answer.

So, let us know what your ex is doing to exhibit “signs” and we will tell you what we think.

So me and this girl hit it off in about November of last year. Like 2 months pass and like we had high and low points in the relationship and ultimately she tell me that she is not feeling the relationship anymore. Honestly I felt bad about it but I tried to keep calm about it. I told her is not a problem, I told her that I just want us to not be beefing and like acting like we hate each other. She tells me that she would like that too. Time goes on and like we had established… Read more »

Hi Zulkifi,

The more you restart nc, the less it can help you. I think it would be better if you a counselor to personally help you..

Q
Guest

So she claims she doesn’t care about me anymore but is always one of the first ppl to check what I post on social media. And she’s “talking” to somebody. Does this mean to does care on the low? Is she acting like she doesn’t care to cover up feelings or to avoid looking weak?(btw we just broke up a couple of days ago.

if you just broke up, then she’s probably just saying that out of pride..

Fredrick jeter

She attempted to reach out to me. After 30 days. We talked i asked her do you think we can get back to talking everyday. She said yes. And thats something she wants to do. So is this now like a fresh start. I was under the impression she wasnt into me like that anymore. But he reassured me that its not that. We have to build back up to more. And she wants to start with a friendship. Me being a man i just want things to go back. But we both dealt with other people since. So do… Read more »

Tbh i am not sure if i am i interested to my ex. Ofcourse she is a very selfish and bitchy character, something that pushed me back . However i stayed . We broke up and then got back together again, but we broke up again. Ever since i started ignoring her , she gets online every two hours or something. Ofcourse i make sure that i seem how i really feel. And tbh i feel great. Should i consider this a sign tho? She used to get online once per day when we were together usually at night.

Hi Issei,

If you’re not sure if you want her back, take your time.. even if she does show signs she’s still interested, doesn’t mean you should start trying to get her back again.

Me & my ex broke up 5 months ago after a 3 year serious relationship. We had plans on moving in together & marriage. She was enrolled in a PHD program when I met her and the entire time we dated she neglected making any real progress towards finishing. She worked a part time job so she would have time to work on school but never really did. Over the course of the relationship I became frustrated because I wanted us to move forward and move in together but she couldn’t contribute financially. School was a sore subject & anytime… Read more »

Hi so my ex gf who broke up with me about 3 months ago has text me “Hey! We are planning to go to Bubbas after service tomorrow. Your more then welcome to come if you want ????????????” should I go or not? And is she just playing games or what?

it’s hard to say she’s playing games with just that one.. and did you keep talking after your break up?

Jarno

Hi all. I am 20 years old and was raised by my grandparents, which means I have an old mindset (searching for someone to settle with). Throughout my life I haven’t been all that lucky with loved ones. So a while ago I gave up on finding someone. I know this sounds ridiculous, but being alone my whole life and seeing my friends having nice and lasting relationships hurts to see because I haven’t been able to do the same. This summer I met a girl at a random place, we were both doing summer jobs at the same place.… Read more »

Hi Jarno,
being in nc means not replying too and not greeting her on her birthday.. so, you need to restart the count.

Girlfriend broke up with me but over a month ago, seemed like everything was great even had a wonderful day off together then an offhand comment I made about someone not having a soul (shes religious and im not) got her emotional and quiet. She went to work right after that and within hours she was bre asdkimg up with me that my lack of faith made it to hard to continue as a full couple.

Me 46, her 25. Coworkers and she pursued me. We started texting every night into the wee hours. Texts got pretty serious and she would send me photos of herself. This went on for about 3 weeks and she texted that she had an opportunity for a date which she was really looking forward to. We went out on our date and had a great time and ended up back at my place. We layed on the couch and watched t.v. until she fell asleep in my arms. I invited her to stay the night since she had a long… Read more »

Hi, 4 months ago me and my ex broke up, since then I have maintained no contact except I apologised to her over facebook but then blocked her as a way of closure I guess. Since then I have unblocked my ex, now we both have my auntie as mutual friends on facebook and she was recently ill, which my ex found out about. She text me to see if she was alright and if everything was ok. I responded to her and told her about the situation. She went on to tell me that she didn’t ignore me when… Read more »

Hi Alex,

you rushed it. It’s supposed to be texting first after nc, when you’ve built enough rapport proceed to calls and when you’ve built enough rapport and attraction proceed to meet ups.. Restart nc, do at least 21 days, be active in improving yourself and in posting.

Hello there…. So me and my ex girlfriend broke up 2 months ago( we were together for a year and a month) and from that day onwards, I’ve been continuously begging and pleading her to come back(even though I knew it was wrong) and I failed every time. Actually, I started no contact a month ago and in a weeks time, my ex broke down and came to talk and I also know that she always cried in school as she missed me. I became so excited that i began to rush things. After a couple of days, I gave… Read more »

So my girlfriend and I broke up about two months ago. We still talk everyday and after two months of failed attempts I decided to buy you guys book. I am starting day one of no contact today. My issue is that I have told her multiple times that I will not give up my pursuit of her and to an extent she wants to believe that I won’t. She has started dating other people, and now I know I can’t be second fiddle and do everything for her while she is out there with other men. Do you still… Read more »

So we are married currently, living together, 2 kids and she recently told me that she has been feeling like I haven’t completely been there for her and she doesn’t know if she wants to stay together. It’s been a week and she has now said that we need to work on our friendship before anything which I understand. You want some sort of friendship 8n your relationship.

Hi Jason,

tell her the current situation is not workable for you and there will be gifts to arrive that you’ve sent before the break up, and then thank her for everything, and then restart nc and do at least 30 days.. continue improving yourself and being active in posting after nc while you slowly build rapport.

Hi, Many of those signs hit my case. Now i have a pickle as my ex suddenly pulled back and had an ope up to me. We have had a great interactions and one lunch (as “friends”). Now i casually asked her to lunch again and she started to act strange and said that she cant go. After that she sent me a long text where she talked how hard the break up was for her and how she have been still crying because of me. Still she said that she doesn’t regret that she broke up with me and… Read more »

Hi, can I ask you please for advice with my situation? We broken up 5 months ago and she said now that she already moved on. I made some mistakes like texting her messages like that I still love her and seemed desperate. I am still in high school and she is few years older and there is also long distance. I behaved sometimes without confidence and talked quietly. She felt sometimes like my older sister or mother. Is there any way to prove to her that hey I am not like that anymore? I know what I can change:… Read more »

Hi Jake, Don’t chase.. When you feel that you need to prove you’re an adult, that means you’re still immature but when people say that you’re young and you’re happy about that and you agree with them, to the point that you cherish it, that means you’re mature and getting old. Maturity, is not about age. It’s the experiences, attitude and character.. Mature people will try to make the relationship work but if they can’t, they accept the situation and move on.. Right now, the best you can do is to do nc for at least 45 days, improve yourself,… Read more »
