1. He keeps mementos from that relationship**
Memories are precious and people hold onto them
only if they are truly, really precious.
No loves to keep bad memories, so if your
boyfriend has something from that ex-girlfriend
which he treasures so much, something is
If he’s trying to forget her, he won’t be keeping that
shirt she left behind at his place befire they broke
He’d have tossed that thing long ago.
2. He’s trying too hard••
Ok, agreed, this might be a bit difficult to detect but
it happens and it is very true.
In a bid to show that they have truly moved on,
guys sometimes do extra in a new relationship
than they would normally do.
Overdose of care, extra attention, numerous gifts,
plenty selfies that always end up on their social
media page, etc.
This would be so cool if they were doing it because
they actually mean it. But that’s the problem – they
It is more about that ex than it is about you. Those
beautiful selfies and everything they do for you is
just to get back at that ex-girlfriend.
It’s all to prove to her that they have moved on.
3. He talks too much about her••
This is totally wrong, too. And it is a very easy
pointer to the fact your boyfriend probably took you
as a rebound relationship.
4. He hates her••
This is meant to be a good thing, right? Your
partner hates his ex so bad. He’s always talking
about how terrible she was, and how badly-
behaved she was and how he’s glad that that
chapter of his life is over.
But what if that is just reverse psychology in
What if he still loves her and means the direct
opposite of every bad stuff he says about her and
the negative emotion he shows towards her.
If he belittles your beauty, efforts, care, cooking,
lovemaking and basically makes you feel
insignificant, he could be comparing to that ex he is
still hung on.
