The Biggest Giveaway Signs Your Ex-Boyfriend Misses You

1. He Keeps “Joking” About Missing You

Jokes all have their roots in the truth. No joke is a complete joke – at least a little bit of it is true.

So if he’s “joking” about missing you, or about thinking about you – that’s a very obvious giveaway that he actually misses you.

It means he’s feeling bad and missing you, but he would be embarrassed if he told you, so he tells you in a “safe” way by “joking” about it.

This is the number one sign for a reason – if he makes jokes about missing you or wanting you back, he almost certainly does.

2. He Asks Your Mutual Friends About Your Dating Situation

If he didn’t miss you, he wouldn’t care about who you were dating. He would be moving on with his own life and moving on from your relationship.

If he’s still keeping tabs on who you’re dating, that means he still thinks about whether or not he has a chance with you.

And if he seems happy or relieved if he hears you’re not dating anyone, it’s a huge, massive giveaway.

So if he’s asking your friends about what your love life is like after him, it’s a sure bet that’s because he misses you.

3. You Keep Running Into Him “By Accident”

Obviously, if you two work together or go to school together or have some other non-romantic reason to run into each other, this isn’t going to be as strong of a sign.

But if he keeps showing up places that he knows you’re going to be – like at a party, or running into you in your neighborhood, he might be trying to run into you.

And why would he be trying to run into you? Because he misses you of course!

4. He Criticizes The New Guy You’re Seeing

This is a completely obvious sign of pure jealousy.

After all, if he didn’t miss you and he wasn’t interested in you romantically anymore, he wouldn’t care who you were dating. Apart from him being legitimately afraid for your safety, he wouldn’t feel the need to criticize a new bf.

So if he’s going out of his way to trash a new guy you’re seeing, it’s because he’s upset you’re seeing someone new – because he still misses you.

5. He Drunk Dials You

Alcohol brings out the truth in a lot of people.

Being drunk lowers your inhibitions and makes you think that things you thought weren’t such a good idea are actually a great idea.

Drunk dialing you means that his true desire is to talk to you again – but sober he’s holding that desire in check. When he’s drunk, his brain isn’t strong enough to hold it back.

So if he’s drunk dialing you – yeah, it’s a strong bet that he misses. You

6. He Sends You Booty Calls

This one often goes hand in hand with the sign above it.

That is, it’s more likely to happen if he’s drunk, but if it happens it means he’s been thinking about it a lot.

If he’s booty calling you, do you really need a road map to tell whether he misses you? This is a slam dunk sign.

7. He’s Not Dating Anyone New

This one is a little more ambiguous. It depends on how long it’s been since you two broke up, and how long you were dating for in the first place.

If it hasn’t been that long since you broke up, or if you guys dated for a long time, him being single might not mean that he misses you. He might just be recovering from the breakup, or enjoying being single for a while.

But if you know that he turned down dating opportunities, or if it’s been a long time and he’s still not with anyone else, that could mean that it’s because he misses you.

8. He Likes To Reminisce About When You Were Dating

This one is another over the top dead giveaway that he misses you.

If he’s bringing up stuff that happened when you were dating in a positive light – like texting you “remember when…” and getting nostalgic – that’s a hugely obvious sign he misses you.

After all, it means that your relationship is still on his mind even though you’re broken up, and that he’s completely nostalgic for what you once had with each other.

9. He Goes Over The Top To Make You Jealous

This all depends on your interpretation.

If he’s dating someone new and maybe posts a picture of them on Facebook or Instagram? That’s not going over the top.

If he’s posting pictures every 30 seconds and showing up to places where he knows you’re going to be with new girls, that’s a whole different story.

Basically, if he’s making a huge deal out of seeing someone new – whether it’s talking about how crazy he is for her after a short period of time, or posting tons of pictures online, or making their new relationship very serious very fast – it means he’s trying to make you jealous.

And if he’s trying to make you jealous, it’s certainly because he misses you and part of him wants you back.

10. He Follows All Your Social Media

Obviously, if you’re only still friends on Facebook because neither of you deleted the other and you have no evidence that he’s actually looking at your profile, this doesn’t apply.

But if he’s commenting on all the new pictures you put up on Instagram, or liking all your Facebook posts – it means he’s keeping up with you on social media.

And if he’s actively following your social media all the time, it means that he misses you and wants you back in his life – even if it’s just online for now.

    drunk-dialing you is the biggest indication he misses you. this might even be the reason why he’s drunk in the first place.
