If you've been asking yourself, "will my ex come back". It means you've been feeling hopeful and you really want to repair your relationship and have things go back to normal.

However, if your ex isn't coming back, then you'll need to prepare yourself to grieve and move on. After all, you cannot wait for someone for the rest of your life.

Life must go on and it starts with you. 

In this article, we also share articles that were written by professionals that others like you found helpful.

Signs Your Ex isn't Coming Back

Signs your ex isn't coming back

Your Ex is Enjoying Life

The first few days or weeks might have been tough for your ex. However, when you start seeing that he is going out, planning holidays or making progress in his career, then he is coping without you.

No communication

When your ex doesn't bother texting, calling, or visiting you, then this is a strong indication that he doesn't want to have anything to do with you.

Moved On

When we say move on, we mean your ex is already dating other people and is putting himself out there. It's even worse when it seems as though he is in a long-term relationship or engaged to be married. If this is the case, then it’s time to move on with your life! 

Trying to Make You Jealous

Some exes can be really spiteful and they can go the extra mile to make you jealous. If your ex is going out of his way to show you that he is happy without you and is flaunting his new partner or dates, then chances are he is not coming back. 

Asked You to Move on

If your relationship ended on a good note and your ex genuinely cares about you - even though he is not coming back, he will tell you to move on with your life and live happily without him. 

So, even though he is concerned about your well-being and happiness, he is still not coming back to you.

Blocked You from Everything

Some breakups do end on a bitter note and the blocking you off might just be temporary. However, when it's become weeks, months, or even years, then you know for sure that he is not coming back. 

He might have blocked you from social media, phone calls and even life in general because he feels he doesn't want you in his life. If your ex moved away, then the chances are even higher of him never coming back.

Speaks Ill of You

Again, when relationships end on a bad note, your ex might have resentful feelings towards you or he might have even fallen out of love with you and he might even speak ill of you to others. 

Especially when people in your inner circle that you trust tell you things that he's said about you, then it means he's probably not coming back. 

Returned All Your Things

When your ex has returned all of your belongings or if there was any money that was due to you, it means he is trying to cut you out.  

He doesn't want any memory of you and feels that it's time to pull the plug.

Change in Attitude

Does it seem like he is not the person you once knew? Have you noticed a change in his behavior or even his attitude towards you? If there was still hope, you'd see that he is trying to make an effort.

However, when you notice the other side of him, then he means he is harboring negative feelings towards you and doesn't want to patch up and make things work.

WikiExpert Suggestion

What you probably don't realize is that what was your rejection was actually your protection! Read this article by Tony Fahkry, Online Life Coach. 

Avoids You at All Costs

If you've been noticing that he is avoiding your calls or when he sees you in public, he does his best to avoid you. It's normal to avoid your ex straight after a breakup, to give yourself time to heal and process everything. 

However, when he has been avoiding you for quite some time, it means he feels it's best to cut you out completely. 


A breakup is difficult and it might seem like the pain is impossible to get over. You need to be strong, rebuild your life and move on. You cannot dwell over someone for the rest of your life especially when they've picked up the pieces.
