11 Obvious Signs He Will Never Come Back
WhatToGetMy Instructional Article
To start off, it is not a hidden fact that most couples who get back together break up within the year. However, is there an acceptable albeit safe period that can pass that would allow couples to successfully get back together after a breakup? According to a study conducted by exbackpermanently.com, there is a safe period in which couples who have broken up can successfully get back together and that period is between 1-3 months with the highest peak at 3 months. This is because most people will have realized that they are better off being in a relationship with their ex than being single, and if it was one person’s fault, this is usually the amount of time it takes for them to change their behavior and for this changed behavior to reflect back to their exes.
However, even though people can get back together and stay together after breaking up, statistics show that more than 70% of people who break up never get back together, and only 14% of people that get back together actually stay together.
Looking at these statistics alone, it should be pretty obvious to you that you probably belong in the 70% of people that never get back together – since that is the majority, and more especially if you are a woman (or a person who dates men). Men are more successful at getting their exes back than women are especially if the relationship ended because the man got cheated on.
It is in your own best interest to know when a relationship is going to work and when it is time to cut off all ties with this person even if you still love and care for them deeply. These signs are so obvious, they will be hard to miss once you know how to identify them and they will make it easier for you to let go and start healing from the relationship.
11 OBVIOUS SIGNS HE WILL NEVER COME BACK
Table of Contents
1. HE HAS A NEW GIRLFRIEND
One of the most obvious signs that he’s never coming back is when your ex-boyfriend gets himself a new girlfriend. And this is not someone he is rebounding with or just random girls he is hooking up with but someone he is in a committed relationship with. This is a clear indication that he has moved on from you and he is now focusing on his relationship with a new woman. When you find out that your ex is in a new relationship, it is time for you to move on from the thought that he is ever going to come back to you.
2. HE NEVER TEXTS YOU BACK
Another sign that he’s not coming back is when he never replies when you reach out to him or he never texts you first anymore. Your first instinct may be to justify and recognize this as the ‘no contact rule’ but the harsh truth is they are just ignoring you and hoping you will take a hint and leave them alone.
Although the no contact rule is often used by people who wish to get back together with their exes and it is often effective by 43 percent, according to a survey conducted by exbackpermanently.com, there are signs that point towards your person wanting to get back with you – therefore, if you are always texting them and they keep leaving you on read, chances are they are not practicing the ‘no contact rule’ but rather they are ignoring you and they do not want you to be a part of their life. They may not tell you straight forward that they do not want you to message them anymore because they do not want to come off as a bad person or if they are not confrontational, or because they know replying to you will only make you message them even more. Whatever their reason is, believe their actions towards you and relieve yourself from the shackles of a relationship that has died and cannot be revived.
3. HE RETURNS YOUR STAFF
You know that he’s gone when he returns all your stuff. This is because when we are seeing someone, their things bring us comfort when they are not there. We like having their things around us as a reminder of their existence in our life, therefore when he gets rid of your things, it is symbolic of him getting rid of you in his life. He does not want to be reminded of your presence anymore and this is a big indicator that he is done with you. When this happens, it is time for you to start moving on and living your life because there are low chances that he will come back to you after he has started removing you from his life.
4. HE IGNORES YOU IN PERSON
Another glaringly obvious sign that he’s never coming back is when you meet him in person and he straight up ignores you. In today’s age of internet communication, it can be hard to read the tone behind a person’s message, however the same cannot be said for in-person conversations. If someone ignores you online, you can always excuse them that maybe they did not receive the message, maybe you sent it to the wrong person, or maybe they are just too busy to be bothered right now. The same excuses cannot be made when someone ignores you in person, they will see you and not acknowledge you. That is when you know that he is done with you and if you had any hope of him coming back to you, this is the time to squash it and start facing the reality that he just might not be coming back to you.
5. HE TELLS YOU HE DOESN’T LOVE YOU ANYMORE
What more obvious sign says he’s gone forever than his own words, coming from his mouth, telling you he no longer loves you? When a person tells you how they feel about you, especially when it is negative, believe them. It means that they have tried throwing hints at you and you just did not catch them so the only other thing they can do is tell you the truth and hope that it sticks this time. Save yourself whatever little dignity you have and leave them when they tell you they no longer love you.
6. HE AVOIDS HANGING AROUND YOUR MUTUAL FRIENDS
Another sign that your ex will never come back to you is when they start avoiding your friends or mutual friends that you share. Throughout the course of your relationship, you will have accumulated friends together or introduced each other to one another’s friends and it is only natural that you all hang around each other often. When your ex has started to move on, he will avoid your friends or mutual friends because he doesn’t want them to report back to you on what he is doing. He also might not want to rub it in their faces that he has found someone or that he is looking for someone to replace you. This could also be done as a sign of loyalty so that he does not make the friends choose sides or make it hard for them to hang out with both you and him and not feel guilty about things.
7. HE IS GETTING MARRIED
One of the biggest signs he will never love you again is when your ex is getting married to another person. At this point, you may have been stuck on your ex for a while, you probably think he is the one that got away, and you would do anything to get him back. However, his choosing to marry another person is a clear indicator that he has moved on and is never ever coming back to you.
8. HE DOESN’T GET JEALOUS
One of the signs that he will be back is when your ex is constantly jealous of the men in your life. Men are very territorial and if he loves you still, he will not want any man to be around you or replace him. If he does not seem moved by people you are dating, chances are he has moved on from you and is not coming back to you. Stop dating people to get his attention and incite a reaction from him, it is time for you to move on and start dating people you actually like that will like you back and whom you can potentially build a future with.
9. HE IS NOT TRYING TO WIN YOU BACK
Another sign that he’s gone for good is when your ex is putting in zero effort to win you back. He never calls, or texts, he hasn’t apologized or sent you flowers. He is literally not trying anything to let you know that he wants you in his life. When a man is no longer pursuing you, chances are he is pursuing someone else and it is high time that you stop waiting for him to turn back around and give you attention. Move on so that by the time he decides you are worth his time, you let him know that he is not worth yours.
10. HE TELLS YOU TO MOVE ON
One of the good obvious signs he will never change his mind is when he tells you to move on from him. This is similar to him telling you that he no longer loves you. When he tells you to move on from him for whatever reason (he doesn’t deserve you, you are too good for him, etc.) take that man by his word and start picking your life back together.
11. HE IS NO LONGER THERE FOR YOU
And lastly, an obvious sign that he will never come back is when he is no longer there for you. If he was there for you emotionally, mentally, or physically and he suddenly stops, this is his way of letting you know that he no longer cares for you and you are no longer his responsibility to look after or be there for you. He is no longer interested in making you feel better and that is a big sign that he no longer loves you and he will not be coming back to you.
3 WAYS TO KNOW IF HE WILL COME BACK TO YOU
Although we have gone through the signs that you should take note of when he is not coming back, we think it is equally important for you to look out for some signs that your man is thinking of coming back to you.
1. HE KEEPS AN OPEN COMMUNICATION
You will know he is coming back to you when you do not have to wonder “will he ever call again?” because he calls you frequently. There is open and constant communication between you and him and your conversations are productive and heading towards both your true feelings about the relationship. This means that you are not left with more questions than answers after your phone call or texts, you are both communicating and considering rekindling your romance.
2. HE MAKES TIME FOR YOU
You know that he will be back when he makes time for you. When you ask him to help you out, he will put everything aside and do everything possible within his means and power to help you. He will not come up with excuses or ghost you. When a man is about you, he will make time for you no matter what you need him for.
3. HE TELLS YOU HE WANTS YOU BACK
And perhaps the most obvious sign that he will come back to you is when he tells you that he wants you back. This is, of course, backed with actions that prove that he really wants you back in his life. And unless a man tells you or he wants you back or asks you if you would like to have him back, do not assume otherwise. On the flip side, if you want to tell an ex how you feel about them and that you still want them in your life here are some things to say to an ex-boyfriend you still love that might help you get him to love you back again.
