Are You Still in Love with Your Ex?
Some relationships are difficult to let go of. In these cases, love can stick around long after your ex
has left you, leaving you confused on what to do next. But are you still in love with your ex? Here are
some indicators that will help you find out for sure.
You Need to Know
One of the most obvious signs of a lingering love is a continued obsession with your ex. If you find yourself
constantly asking questions about your ex’s whereabouts or activities then you obviously still have a significant
interest in them. You might find yourself talking to parents, or even people you don’t know just to get the
latest scoop on your ex lover. When your life becomes a constant quest for information about your ex, then it
is likely your love for them is still alive.
Too Much Effort
Everyone likes to look their best as often as possible,
but you should also ask yourself why you are spending the effort. If you are devoting extra time on your
appearance or agenda because you are considering your ex’s perception of you, then you are probably still
carrying strong feelings for them. Some other examples of this behavior include frequenting places where
you might see your ex, buying clothes or other items you think they may like, or even avoiding situations
where they could see you at your worst.
Becoming overly agreeable or submissive to your ex is another behavior that displays lingering love. You feel
like you can reconnect with your ex by supporting everything they do or say, even if you have issues with it.
This can include sticking up for the them to friends of family, going out of your way to compliment them, or simply
saying “yes” to anything they ask of you. Part of love is making sacrifices, and submissive behavior shows
that you will do anything to rebuild the old love of your relationship.
Are you still in love with your ex?
You shouldn’t be embarrassed about having feelings for your ex, but you should have a plan to address the
issue. Force yourself to make a decison to either move on with your life or focus on winning back your ex's love.
