If it has been a while since you broke up and you are still secretly hoping to get your ex back, then it’s time you reconsider your priorities, your love and the relationship goals in your life. I am sure you still think that your ex is the one for you and soon they will realize this and come back to you. But usually, that’s just a make-believe your mind plays when it’s still in denial. Here are a few questions that might help you realize whether it’s time to move on or not.
1. Was your ex really a nice person?
Think about the time you spent with your ex. Did they treat you with respect and kindness? Do you think they were a nice person? Or you were hoping that things will get better in the future and your ex will become nice. If you are hoping that your ex will come back and change to be a better person, you are going to be disappointed. It’s best if you just move on and forget bout getting back together.
2.Does your ex use you to complain about their new lover?
Are you trying to be the person who comforts their ex after they broke up with their lover? Do you believe that once they see how much you care about them they will come back? If so, you are just setting yourself up for hurt. Even if they do get back with you, you are always going to regret being a doormat and waiting for them while they roamed around town having a short lived romance with everyone else. Instead of waiting for them, move on and find yourself other lovers. It’s time you decide to move on and let your ex decide whether or not they want you.
3. Was your relationship really worth it?
Even if you start a brand new relationship with your ex, it will be similar to your last one in many ways. Think back and decide whether or not you want to be in a relationship like that. Do you really think you have the potential to be in a loving healthy relationship with your ex? If there were some major problems in your relationship, then it’s better if you move on.
4. Did you have different priorities in life?
Did you two breakup because of a major life decision? Did you two have different priorities in life? If so, then you should just move on and concentrate on finding someone who wants the same thing in life as you. Even though your ex might have been perfect on every other level, unless your partner and you want the same things in life, you relationship can never be a happy one.
5. Is your ex already moving on?
Even after a breakup, you can easily determine whether or not your ex is interested in you. You can know whether they are indifferent towards you or they are still hoping to get back together. All you have to do is keep an eye out for all the signs your ex likes you. If all the signs indicate they are dead set on moving on, then so should you.
