Do they want you back?
Why are they doing this?
After a breakup, all I could think of is the possibility of us getting back together. Then my ex started flirting with me!
It seems as if you are constantly thinking and pondering the big question “Do they want me back or not?
Just about the time either you are so desperate and have decided that you need to move on OR if you were like me were willing to do anything to get them back they mess you up big time. They start flirting with you – what is up with that!
If your ex is now paying you more attention and seems to want to spend time with you, or perhaps they are flirting with you, then it is perhaps ok to allow yourself to feel hopeful.
As tempting as it will be, your heart is going to want to start rushing in and trying to get your ex back. After all, they are doing the very things you wanted them to do – paying you attention. HOWEVER, do they really want to get back with you?
To make you feel a little better I should tell you that these are the most common signs of an ex wanting you back but don’t ruin it by running back to them just yet. As hard as this is going to be to do, you need to play a little hard to get. Be cool. You will probably find that your ex will respond to you playing cool at their flirting anyway. At this stage if you run to them you may find your ex will start pushing away again. If you had already been playing a little hard to get it was most likely that action that led to the renewed interest in the first place.
Most times when a couple break up there will be a natural level of missing each other and perhaps a longing to get back together. Especially if you had been together a year or longer. Your ex cannot help miss you because of all the shared memories, the fun times you had together, are going to be in their head just as much as yours.
But there are other emotions in the mix and come into play including past regrets. If you are wondering “does my ex want me back” the odds are good that they are thinking the same thing for the same shared reasons.
However, play cool or risk getting your heart broken again – you see sometimes when an ex shows interest in you again after a break up it is only a game. They know you love them, and they may be trying to get attention without actually wanting to get back with you.
Perhaps your ex is flirting with you to pass the time since they have no own else in their lives now. Worst yet maybe they are seeking revenge for something they feel you are responsible for. Therefore, you see why it is important not to rush things and risk getting hurt again.
This is a very common situation to be in and it happens to many people. You are not the only one confused and wondering, “why are they flirting with me” “Does my ex want me back” The truth is you should get a feel for the situation and then act accordingly. If they are not serious about getting back with you then in reality playing cool is the best scenario to shield you from getting hurt.
