How do you know if your ex-girlfriend still cares about you?
Signs your ex-girlfriend misses you
1) She stalks you on the internet
Unless you have willpower of steel, you’ve probably been guilty of this as well.
Your ex is no different. She’s probably keeping tabs on what you’re doing by looking on your Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat.
She wants to know what you’re up to. She wants to see if you’re going out on dates, seeing anyone…
And also, She wants to see if you have “moved on.”
She may be looking to see if you’ve kept any of your old photos together, or if you’ve practically scrubbed her entirely from your social media.
Now, it’s hard to tell for certain if she’s been stalking you, but a key sign that she’s still on your social media is if you get any likes or comments from her.
Keep an eye on those likes and comments. It just might be her trying to test the waters.

2) She dates immediately after your breakup
It’s the classic rebound.
Right after a painful breakup, she looks for companionship in someone else’s arms.
Your ex is a swirling mix of confused emotions, grief, and loneliness. She’s not used to spending her nights and weekends solo, so she’s looking for someone to fill that gap.
And also, She’s not looking for a new love; she’s looking for someone to be a stand-in for her old relationship.
She’s not going to be seriously committed to this new guy. Instead, she’s just using him to paper over her emotional wounds from the breakup. You might even notice that the new guy looks like you or even has some similar personality traits.
Again, she’s just looking for a replacement for you because she misses you.
3) She’s actively making you jealous
Nothing says “I haven’t moved on” more than a bunch of photos saying “look at how much fun I’m having.”
If she’s posting a ton of photos on social media of her hanging out and partying with a bunch of guy friends, odds are that she’s trying to get a rise out of you.
She wants to make you jealous.
She wants you to say something.
It doesn’t necessarily matter if you broke up with her, or she broke up with you, if she’s posting photos of her having a good time, the message is strictly for you. She wants it to say “this is my life without you,” but what she’s really saying is “I can’t stop thinking about you.”
This begs the question, what are you doing to make her jealous in return?
Jealousy is a powerful thing; use it to your advantage. But use it wisely.
If you’re feeling adventurous, try this “Jealousy” text
— “I think it was a great idea that we decided to start dating other people. I do just want to be friends right now!” —
By saying this, you’re telling your ex that you’re actually dating other people right now… which will in turn make her jealous.
This is a good thing.
You’re communicating to your ex that you’re actually wanted by other women. By saying that you’re dating around already, you’re pretty much saying that “it’s your loss!”
The best thing is that you’ll induce a “fear of loss” in your ex which will trigger her attraction for you again.
I learned about this text from Brad Browning, who has helped thousands of men and women get their exes back. He goes by the moniker of “the relationship geek”, for good reason.
In this free video, he’ll show you exactly what you can do to make your ex want you again.
No matter what your situation is — or how badly you’ve messed up since the two of you broke up — he’ll give you a number of useful tips that you can apply immediately.
Here’s a link to his free video again. If you really want your ex-girlfriend back, this video will help you do this.
4) She keeps contacting you
This is an obvious one: if she’s reaching out to you, she misses you.
Maybe she sends you a text asking how you’re doing. And also, Maybe she keeps bumping into you “randomly” throughout the week. Maybe she mentions that she’d like to come over to get her stuff back.
But whenever it’s time for her to actually come over and rip away the band-aid, she’ll suddenly change her mind. Or she’ll always “forget” to pick up all of her items, meaning she has to come over again and again.
Whatever it is, it usually happens frequently.
If your ex continues to contact you, she’s looking for excuses to talk to you.
If she wants to talk to you, it means she misses you.
5) She keeps talking to your friends
This is a little bit of a sneaky one, so you need to keep in good contact with your friends to make sure they let you know if this happens.
Basically, your ex keeps dropping a line to your friends. What’s she asking about? You, primarily.
She’ll ask how you’ve been, if you’re seeing anyone, if you miss her, all manner of questions that she wants to ask you, but is too scared to actually do in person.
Instead, she tries to make your friends the go-between, making them carry her emotional water.
If she had moved on, she wouldn’t bother asking about you. Instead, she hasn’t moved on at all and wants to know if you feel the same way.
And also, If she’s asking your friends about you, it’s a classic sign that she misses you.
