Maybe you just broke up and you’re wondering if you can get him back, but some of the things he’s saying and doing have you feeling a little nervous.

Maybe it feels like he’s almost gone from your life, and you just want to know whether you have a chance or whether he’s really moved on forever.

Whatever your situation – I’ve got you covered.

I’m going to give you the biggest signs that mean your ex has moved on and your relationship is over for good.

I know how awful it is to want to get back together with someone who doesn’t want you back. I know how helpless it can feel, and how terrible the longing is to have him in your arms again.

I don’t want anyone to have to suffer through feeling like that for even a second longer than they have to.

That’s why this article is going to give you the biggest signs your ex has moved on. If your ex is showing you a few or more of these signs, it means that he really has moved on and you’d be better off letting him go and looking for someone new.

Remember – if there really is no hope, the sooner you let him go the faster you’ll start to feel better.

The Top Signs Your Ex Has Moved On

1. He Told You To Find Someone New

This is maybe the biggest sign that he can give you that he’s over you.

more: Can I Get My Ex Back?

A guy who had any doubt in his mind about whether or not he would get back together with you in the future would never ever say this to you.

That’s because when he tells you that you should get over him and find someone new, he’s effectively saying “I’m over you, and we’re never going to get back together.”

So if he says something like that to you, the best thing you can do is believe him.

2. If You’re In The Same Place He Won’t Even Look At You

After a relationship ends, there’s a certain degree of intimacy left over.

It’s only natural. After all, you had an emotional and physical connection with this person. That doesn’t go away overnight.

So if he doesn’t even want to say hello to you… if he doesn’t even want to look at you if you wind up in the same place…

That means that he really wants nothing to do with you moving forward, and that he’s moved on.

3. He Tries His Best Not To Run Into You

This goes hand in hand with the sign above it.

If a guy has any sort of ambivalence about getting back together with you – if it’s even a possibility at all in his mind – he’s not going to mind running into you.

Why would he? If he thinks you might get back together one day, it would feel good to run into you, catch up, and talk.

So if he’s avoiding places he knows you’re going to be – whether he doesn’t go to a party specifically because he knows you’ll be there, or he stops going to bars he knows you like – it means that he wants to completely cut you out of his life.

And a guy who wants that is a guy who’s trying to move on, and probably already has.

4. He Unfriended And Unfollowed You On All Social Media

This is a bit of a softer sign – if he did this and none of the others, then it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s over you.

But this is definitely a step towards being over you. If he’s following the no contact rule, it’s one of the crucial steps towards getting perspective on the relationship.

It means he doesn’t want to be reminded of you when he goes on Facebook or any other social media, and that he doesn’t want to interact with you online either.

Like I said before, this is a step towards him moving on, but it’s a crucial one. If you see this step in combination with a couple others on this list, it’s a very bad sign for the future of the relationship.

5. He Gave All Your Stuff Back

This goes hand in hand with the sign directly above it.

When he gives you all your stuff back, what he’s really doing is trying to get rid of anything in his life that reminds him of you.

Just like unfollowing you on social media, giving your stuff back gives him less triggers in his life that make him start thinking about you.

And a guy who doesn’t even want to think about you or be reminded of you is a guy who’s definitely trying to move on from being with you, if he hasn’t already.

6. He Moved Away From Your City

I’m not saying he moved away because of you.

But if he moved away, it definitely means that he’s let go of any chances of being with you.

People stay in cities for lots of reasons, and one of the biggest ones is that their S/O wants to be there, so they want to be there.

more: Signs That Your Ex Has Moved On

Long distance relationships are hard to pull off even under the best circumstances, and if we’re talking about a couple who’s already broken up and trying to get back together, they’re nearly impossible.

So if he moved away from the city you share, it means he has absolutely zero plans of getting back together with you, and has almost certainly moved on.

7. He’s Dating Someone New

This could be one of the biggest signs he’s moved on, but it could also mean the opposite.

If he’s in a real, bonafide, “we’re serious about each other” relationship that’s lasted at least a few months and has all the hallmarks of a serious relationship, then yes, it definitely means he’s moved on from you.

more: Your Ex Has Moved On And It’s Time To Do The Same

But if he’s only been dating this new person for a few weeks or less, and they started dating really quickly after you broke up, then chances are good that it’s a rebound relationship. And if he’s in a rebound, it means he’s trying to move on from you… but rebound relationships are not the best way to do that.

8. He’s Completely Cut Contact With You

Look, if you want to get back together with him, you have to at least be talking to him. There’s no chance at all if you don’t talk to each other whatsoever.

So if he’s ignoring all your texts, calls, and messages, and giving you absolutely zero contact, it means that he’s not interested in talking to you at all, and therefore not interested in getting back together.

more: 10 Signs That He Hasn’t Completely Moved On After The Breakup

A guy who has even the slightest interest in getting back together with you isn’t going to ignore all your calls and texts. You’re going to have some communication with him.

So if it’s a complete communications blackout… that means that he’s definitely moved on.

    He definitely has moved on if he tries by all means to unfriend u on social media,,or your usual hangout spots. Time for you to move on other people and see where it takes you.

  • justine March 17, 2018, 8:16 pm

    I left him a month a go. He txt me and ask when in coming to get my stuff. I tell him I’m not ever going back there. He made an ass outta me. I lost a good job and a place to live cuz I thought there was love. I was wrong!! I told him the damage is done and to leave me alone.

  • carolina February 15, 2018, 5:41 am

    an ex who’s still interested would pop out almost everywhere he thinks you may be. but if your ex is obviously trying to avoid running into you, it’s a huge sign he’s trying to move on.

  • marilou February 13, 2018, 1:02 pm

    him moving away is sure sign he may have moved on or that he really wants to move on. this is sad but if it’s for you to also start moving forward, then might as well think about it.

  • leanne February 12, 2018, 2:52 pm

    if you see him with another woman, happy and in love…i think that’s the time it’s really over. i’ve been thru this and it hurt me a lot but you know it’s over when you see him happy with another person & you just gotta let him go.

  • natalie February 12, 2018, 8:43 am

    if it feels like he’s really trying to avoid you even your common friends, he’s positively moved on and do not want to be associated at all. well, at least for the mean time.

  • leila January 23, 2018, 7:40 pm

    he has moved on, so did i.

  • angie September 28, 2017, 5:34 pm

    when another person is already involved with a new one, i think that’s when you know it’s over for you.

  • gigi September 27, 2017, 1:56 pm

    if he’s done it, i think you better do it also and move on the sooner

  • eva September 7, 2017, 5:19 pm

  • melodie August 23, 2017, 6:36 pm

    if you ever bump into him, he won’t even dare look at you.

  • melissa August 20, 2017, 7:46 pm

    unfriending and unfollowing you on social media does really have a huge impact. it might just really mean he’s moved on. =(

  • tracey August 18, 2017, 11:40 am

    easier said than done, yes. but change your perspective and you’ll realize your worth by taking this time off than thinking about how you can get him back and stuff like that.

  • ashley August 16, 2017, 3:35 pm

    my ex once told me he’s been seeing a new girl, that point i knew we’ were really done.

  • mary grace August 15, 2017, 6:37 am

    all of these can be really obvious and you should take them seriously

  • margaret August 6, 2017, 11:54 pm

    you ex dating another woman is the biggest sign he’s moved on

  • carla July 30, 2017, 10:52 pm

    if he moves out, i believe that’s really it.

  • mel July 26, 2017, 3:27 pm

    if he tells you he’s found a new girl, take it as it is.

  • lorin July 23, 2017, 11:49 pm

    if he’s showing these signs, take action and try to move forward instead of looking back

  • shanon July 17, 2017, 11:42 pm

    if he tells you he’s found someone new, take his word for it. go through the process and come back stronger.

  • nadia July 16, 2017, 4:17 pm

    you’d know it when he really tries to avoid you at all times.

  • janella July 13, 2017, 11:59 pm

    your ex moving to another place is a huge sign he doesn’t want you back and is determined to move on without you

  • shanice July 10, 2017, 7:08 pm

    giving all your stuff back is s huge sign and you must not ignore it.

  • meredith July 9, 2017, 1:25 pm

    unfriending and unfollowing you on social media is a big sign you must really consider

  • ozanne July 4, 2017, 4:54 pm

    sorry that it’s over. you too should move on after dealing with the pain and sadness. don’t take too long though, you might be missing so much.

  • vanessa June 29, 2017, 1:13 pm

    to hear about him dating a new girl is one thing. but hearing from him this truth is another thing.

  • lenie June 28, 2017, 11:37 pm

    so this only means you already need to move on too.

  • kelly June 27, 2017, 10:14 am

    if you see him happy with another woman, maybe that is really it.

  • shirley June 25, 2017, 3:18 pm

    if he wants your stuff out of his place, that may be the sign you’ve been waiting for.

  • lily June 22, 2017, 12:46 pm

    when he says he has someone new, that’s just it.

  • melanie June 20, 2017, 1:13 pm

    if he tries to really avoid you, then he is definitely moving on
