9. Trying to make you jealous or staying completely single
What is the relationship status of your ex? Do they have some one-night-stand kind of relationships to make you jealous? Or has your ex remained single since you broke up?
If you guys dated for a long time and they remained single, it could just be so they can get some rest, to enjoy freedom and the single life. But if this happens along with any of the other signs listed above, then the reason why they are single is pretty obvious.
However, if they show up randomly at bars where you go with some new person on their arm (but they are never really doing it randomly), they are making you jealous. They show off their new date, keep talking about them, keep mentioning them in front of you, but not because they’re madly in love with them. It’s because they’re madly in love with you, and they want to see if you still care for them enough to show some jealousy.
Either way, both of these are signs that they are either making you jealous enough to react or that your ex is waiting for you. If there is nothing serious going on, you’re the one your ex still wants.
10. Wanting to be friends with you
Being friends with your ex is a topic that has been discussed too many times by now. By now, it’s not a question of whether you should or shouldn’t be—the question is whether your ex really wants to be just a friend. There is no need to mention here that being friends with your ex almost always ends up the same way—people get back together with their exes.
And your ex wants you so badly that they are proposing something that obvious. They could really want to have you by their side, but there’s only a slight possibility of that happening. Mostly, exes propose to stay friends because that way they’re still in your life and getting you back is much easier.
If you suspect that this could be the case with your ex, you can be sure that their ulterior motives are somewhat different than you might have thought. They want to stay friends with you so that they can always be in touch with you and wait for the perfect moment to let you know that they want to be more than just friends.
