‘Love’, probably one of the most complicated phenomena in the universe’s existence. It might interest you to know that experts and objective theorists in diverse fields have done their bids in trying to dissect the two-faced virtue, but trust me, it has never been easy and might never be. We’re all familiar with the saying, feelings don’t lie. I mean who isn’t, anyone who is a person has definitely come across this versatile quote, no doubt. This brings us to the common reality of ‘lovey dovies’ and their unending cycle of catching feelings, having unresolved misunderstandings, breaking up…and then loving again.

       C’mon, we all see this story line in movies..but what’s more intriguing about it remains the fact that this plot, has more reality in itself than anything you’ve ever seen in fictional representation. Why? You’d ask. Well,  I’ll say, that’s because, we are humans. There is no disputing the fact that we are highly complicated and emotional beings, who are bound to make mistakes. Yes, we all have contrasting ideologies, and when in a relationship, friction is bound to erupt. That is the reason why it is never a suprise when underlying feelings still exist among exes, even after a devastating break up.

      Are you inquisitive about your ex’s feelings? Maybe just wanna know if a spark could still fly. You’d be shocked to know that he or she exerts gestures that might just prove affirmative regarding their feelings towards you. That’s why I’ve curated a list of 15 tell tale signs that your ex is pretending to be over you.

  1. Your ex is pretending to be over you if he or she still contacts you on a regular basis.

This one’s a vivid indication that your ex is not an inch close to being over you. They’ll want to hear your voice, just to be sure you are okay. Why? Cause they’re still in love with you. Remember, love is caring and selfless. If that lady, or that guy is still head over heels for you, they won’t consider the fact that calling or keeping in touch would paint a desperate picture of them, they’ll still do it anyways. More like doing everything in their power to not forget the sound of your voice.

  1. If he or she steals glances at you.

Yep! This one’s a regular occurrence. We all know the half of it, the same ‘ole story’. He can’t get his eyes of you. She’s always making awkward eye contact… they’re so not over you. If your ex is still in love with you, trust me..they won’t be able to get enough of your face, or your presence in general. You wanna keep this one in check if you’re on the inquisitive side of things. It’s definitely one of the signs that your ex is pretending be over you.

  1. Feels uncomfortable when around you

How would you know this? Well, the atmosphere around him or her would give off awkward energy when you are only metres apart from each other. They’d act awkwardly, when they’re around you. It’ll almost be pathetic to watch, just enough for you to understand that they’re still catching feelings. However, you might want to note that this funny attitude could be displayed unconsciously. Keep in mind that this is one of the signs your ex is pretending to be over you. 

  1. If he or she asks people about you 

They’d still ask friends about you, wanting to know how you’re faring without necessarily letting you know. I mean, you guys had been an item for years, and if there are still any underlying feelings, he would want to know how life has been for you recently. He or She would want to be updated with recent developments in your life choices. It’s no suprise, believe me.

  1. If he or she still keeps in touch with your family

I have to say, this is one of the funniest points I’ve curated, but it’s no new occurrence in the world of exes and pending feelings. The undying hope that something might happen again between you both, would make your ex feel cosy with your family, hence, the regular contact. Therefore, if you find out that your ex still keeps in touch with your family members, and even engages in lengthy conversations with them, it’s probably a tell tale sign that there’s still some fire that hasn’t been quenched. This is another of the obvious signs your ex is pretending to be over you.

  1. Your ex is pretending to be over you if he or she brings you up in conversations

Whether, they’re bringing you up in conversations about your weaknesses or strengths, the sole fact that they’re mentioning you passes off the love vibe. By that I mean, they’re missing you. He’s having a casual hangout with friends and they go on talking about this and that, but he can’t say five sentences without calling your name. Girl! He ain’t over you one bit. She’s out with some friends and subconsciously brings you up in conversations, even when there’s no need to, it’s no doubt that she isn’t over you. Roger that!

  1. If he or she still holds onto your gifts

You find out he’s still got that old sweat shirt you bought him last Val, or she still has that rusty jacket in her possession? The reason is obvious. When it’s over between you both in body and soul, you don’t hold on to each other’s gifts or past possessions. C’mon, just seeing it would get you annoyed. But if reverse is the case, then you should be sure that feelings are attached, trust me on this one. This is another interesting one of the signs your ex is pretending to be over you.

  1. Your instincts tell you your ex still has feelings for you

Remember when I said feelings don’t lie? I wasn’t only talking about romantic feelings, I meant instincts too. When you’ve still got this feeling in your gut that your ex is not over you, then you’re probably right. I mean, a good percentage of people who felt this way were 100 percent correct. Ever heard the saying that, ‘instincts are divine’? It’s a natural or inherent impulse, and ‘natural is bae’.

  1. Hasn’t been in any serious relationship since the breakup

This one does it. You wanna know if they’re not over you? Then check their love life. When you do this, you are likely to find out that your ex has not been in any relationship after the breakup. And if they’ve been in a relationship, it didn’t last at all. Keep in mind that this is one of the common signs your ex is pretending to be over you.

  1. If he or she is inquisitive about your love life

If she is still interested in being with you, she would want to know if you’re dating anyone else. If that guy still has any underlying romantic feelings for you, believe me, he’ll want to know if you’ve found someone else who you’re dating.

  1. If he or she is hopelessly jealous

Jealousy among ‘lovey dovey exes’ is two sided. They’re either jealous that you are moving on from the breakup while they aren’t. Or they’re jealous that you’ve found someone else, who’s company you enjoy. These things are predictable and easily noticed, trust me, when your ex is not over you, they won’t miss out on this one. Remember that this is one of the vital signs your ex is pretending to be over you.

  1. If he or she is not moving on

It’s hard for them to move on when they are still in love with you. It’s literally one of the hardest task to accomplish, for someone who is not over you. From their appearance, they seem drained and starved of happiness. This one’s a transparent sign. Trying to indulge you in conversations, and prolong greetings like it’s the one chance they’ll ever get to talk with you. This is another of the signs your ex is pretending to be over you, and you can easily get he or she back if you give attention.

  1. If he or she still wants to see you

If they’re not over you, they still want to see you every time and would go the extra length to achieve this. If you notice he/she bumps into you every time, then it’s obvious they’re probably stalking, to get familiar with your routines and be around you.

  1. Takes responsibility for past faults

When they’re still in love. They apologize for all past faults and grievances, while taking responsibility for mishaps, even when you were in the wrong. If it mattered to them who was at fault back then, well it won’t matter now, because all they’ll want is to have you back. Ironical right, but that’s what love can do. You’ve got to roger this one. It’s one of the signs your ex is pretending to be over you.

  1. If he or she brings back old memories

Dear lovelies..if your ex isn’t over you, then they’re really not over you. You coincidentally bump into each other, and then you’re having casual conversations but your ex is bringing up old memories of both of you in your dating days, coupled with funny moments, trying to make you laugh or maybe feel desirous of that life, then they’re so not over you.

          Amidst all this, the bottom line is that,  when you notice your ex acts indifferent towards you and shows no emotions whatsoever, then it’s obvious there are no underlying feelings. Any other behavioural patterns besides this is a clear indication that they’re not over you.
