There are good signs and bad signs when it comes to finding out how your ex boyfriend might feel about you.
If you ended things on a positive note, he'll have mostly good memories.
If you had a lot of fighting and arguing toward the end, don't despair - many couples run into such rough patches just before they break up.
Even if some really bad things were said between you and your ex boyfriend prior to the break up, the relationship you once had might still be salvageable...
if you can determine how he feels about your past history together.
If you and your ex have kept in touch after breaking up, this can be a good sign.
A guy who hasn't stopped talking to you is still keeping his foot in the door of the relationship, preventing it from fully closing.
If you're the one initiating contact, you're probably showing him that you're interested in dating again.
But if he's making just as much contact as you are, and initiating his own phone calls or emails, chances are he might be interested in getting back together as well.
Guys very, very rarely stay friends with you for the sake of friendship.
A guy who once dated you will always view you as a potential girlfriend again, if he's still keeping in touch.
The question then becomes timing.
When is a good time to approach your ex about going out again? There's no set answer to that question, but I will say this: the longer you can go without seeing each other, the more anger and friction will dissipate between the two of you.
Eventually, that bad stuff fades away - leaving only the good times, laughter, and fun romantic memories.
These memories are your allies when it comes to getting back your ex boyfriend.
They will help remind him of the spark the two of you once had together.
After a break up, you should try to keep your distance from your ex boyfriend.
Although it's tough, you can accomplish two very important things: making him miss you, and getting your own life in order.
Both of these accomplishments will help make your ex interested in you again, when you finally do get back in touch.
Reestablishing contact after only a few days just won't cut it...
several weeks or even a month should pass before you talk to your ex again.
This cooling off period does wonders for your chances of reconciliation, and lets your ex know you're not desperately chasing him.
Desperation never works in getting your ex back.
So how do you know how your ex boyfriend feels about you? There's a very accurate gauge to measure your ex's interest in you romantically, and that gauge is indifference.
If your ex boyfriend is happy to hear from you, acts excited, responds quickly to your emails and calls you back - he's still not completely over your relationship yet.
Even though he may be playing the role of friend right now, he's still keeping the channels of communication with you open for possible future romantic reasons.
However, if your ex seems bored when you talk to him...
gives one word answers...
rushes you off the phone or acts too busy to talk to you all the time? This means he's growing indifferent to you, as both a friend and a potential girlfriend.
There are ways to reverse this situation but you need to do it quickly, before you lose your ex's interest altogether.
