10. Talks About Her A Lot
This is one of the most obvious and annoying signs that your man is still thinking about his ex. If he is always finding ways of bringing her into the conversation, chances are, he is just finding excuses to talk about her.
This does not mean he does not like you, it just means he needs to get closure before he can let someone else into his heart.
9. Stalks Her Social Media
Guys may not admit to this, but they do a little stalking themselves. Regardless of what they tell you, men like to know what is up with the girl that they can’t get out of their minds.
8. Keeps In Touch With Her
It is one thing to get a text here and there but it is another thing to be talking to an ex on a daily and if you find your boyfriend always finding excuses to chat with his ex then maybe you should start coming up with excuses to leave his ass!
If a man is in love with a woman he is not going to seek attention from his ex-girlfriend, that is what little boys do. Listen, it is understandable to keep an open dialogue relationship with an ex, meaning wishing them a happy birthday or asking them a question here and there but when it becomes a weekly routine that is when the problem becomes visible.
7. Keeps Photos Of The Two Of Them
Women may be crazy at times, but we are able to understand (not accept) that our boyfriends were in love before us, however, we do not need to see photo evidence of this time. All that should be cleared up before the two of you get too serious or else it will cause a lot of tension in the long run.
6. Has Called You By Her Name
As humans, our subconscious is something that we do not understand well, but it tends to know you very well. If your boyfriend keeps calling you by his ex’s name, there is some psycho-analysis that will show that she is subconsciously who he is thinking of.
5. Compares You To Her
When a man starts comparing you to other women, especially other women he has been with, it can cause a large rift in your relationship.
A lot of men do not realize they are doing it which is why you should communicate it with them, however, if it is something that becomes a habit I am not sure how long your relationship will last.
4. Keeps Her Things
Have you ever been walking around our boyfriend’s place and noticed all the little things that were left behind by the ex? For example, he hairbrush, or little knick-knacks she made or even more personal items like clothing. This is normal, to a certain extent.
As women, we need to understand that men do not think like us when it comes to this kind of thing- most men do not even notice what was left behind. That is why we as their new ladies, need to tell them. Then after they are told, if they still feel the need to keep those items, then maybe that should be of concern to you.
3. Loves Sharing Their Memories With You
If you find your boyfriend constantly living in his memories with his ex, it could be a sign that he is yearning to go back to those days, when they were together and happy.
You need to explain to him that this hurts your feelings or makes you uncomfortable and if he truly cares he will consciously make an effort to stop!
2. He Hesitates When Choosing Between You And Her
Picking her over you is an obvious one, however, if he is hesitating in any way, shape, or form then you should make the choice easy for him and walk away.
As a woman, you should never stand for being someones second choice or last option. You need to understand what you are worth and if the man who has your heart is not sure if he wants it then he definitely does not deserve it.
1. Always Defends Her
How annoying would it be if your boyfriend was always defending another girl? Imagine if that girl was his ex, it would be even more annoying!
Men are protective and defensive of the people they love most, so if you find your man always taking his ex’s back this should be a red flag for you– do not just ignore it.
