Break-ups can make for very tricky situations for both parties involved. Are you interested in a guy who’s just recently gone through a bad break-up? Are you dating a guy who you suspect of still being in love with his ex? These are some very difficult questions to answer. However, you don’t need to fret. There are some very easy signals that you could pick up to know the answer.

Discover if he’s over his ex by taking note of these blatant signs right now.

1. He’s Over Her: He’s genuinely happy for her

Take this situation. His friends bring up some current news about his ex regarding her career advancement or a new relationship he’s in. If he expresses genuine happiness for her, then that’s a good sign that he’s most likely over their break-up.

2. He’s Not Over Her: Uses bitter language

Take the same situation in the previous item on this list, and see if he takes another approach. If he expresses bitter language and uses negative words to describe his feelings about the situation, then that’s a red flag that he’s probably not over her yet. Retaining bad thoughts about someone can be an obvious sign of not moving on.

3. He’s Over Her: He’s burned bridges

He’s blocked her on Facebook. He’s deleted her cellphone number from his cellphone. He no longer has pictures of her in his camera roll. He’s unfollowed her on Twitter and Instagram. That might be a good sign that he’s really getting over her. He’s basically saying he no longer cares about getting in touch with her.

4. He’s Not Over Her: They remain friends

This is a very slippery slope. There are lots of couples who try to maintain friendships after break-ups, but it’s fairly obvious that feelings are still there for a lot of them. If they remain friends after a break-up, it could be very troubling. Maybe a case could be made for people who were actual friends before they got into a relationship, buy you’re going to have to tread lightly with this area. - Continue reading on the next page
