Constantly Talks about Her
It's pretty normal for a guy to talk about his ex to his current girlfriend – however, not excessively. It's not normal for the guy to keep bringing up the girl that got away to the girl that's still by his side. This is absolutely and totally the first he's not over her sign that you should watch out for. Just pay attention to how much he talks about her, how much he brings her up in daily conversations – if it's a ton, you know he's not over her yet.
Keeps Old Pictures
It's perfectly normal to keep a few pictures of past relationships – I have a few myself, but is it normal to display them everywhere? Is it normal to still have a picture of you two as your Facebook default picture? Sometimes it's hard to be blunt, but if he has pictures of his ex all over, you're gonna have to confront him because he's not over her.
Distant during Sex
If you are at the point in your relationship where you are having sex, do you notice a distance? Does he seem to be thinking about someone else? Does he even mumble his ex's name during sex? These are all warning signs ladies that he ain't over her and maybe you should either talk to him or move on.
Do you constantly feel compared to your boy's ex-girlfriend? Does he constantly mention all the little things that she used to do … that you don't? This is definitely a sign that he's not over her! No one should ever compare their current girlfriend to an ex and vise versa ladies!
Wants You Two to Be Friends
I get that a lot of guys are still friends with their ex girlfriends. Some guys can move past it and be just friends with their ex, but it's when he wants you and her to become friends. Then it becomes a problem – who knows, maybe she is cool, maybe she is sweet, maybe she is awesome to hang out with – she's also someone that probably broke your boyfriend's heart.
Keeps an 'Ex Girlfriend' Box
If you have ever seen Gilmore Girls, you know exactly what type of 'box' I'm talking about. Lorelei had a Max box, Rory had a Dean box – it's perfectly normal! If your guy has an ex girlfriend box, it's understandable, but if he was really over her, wouldn't he have pitched that?
Calls You by Her Name
This is a huge sign that he's really not over her yet. If your name is Jessica and he's constantly calling you Amy – his ex girlfriend, doesn't that seem fishy? It's understandable in the beginning to maybe mix the names up, heck it might not even have been that long since his breakup but if you are getting serious, he needs to stop the name calling.
This sort of goes along with the 'ex box' theory but on a larger scale. If he's keeping pictures, trinkets, treasures and gifts that she got him out in the open … that's kind of strange. It's definitely a warning sign and you will definitely want to just bring it up to him and talk it out.
As you can see, just as we have a hard time letting go of our old boyfriends, guys having a hard time admitting that he's not over her. If you are in a relationship with a guy that you think 'he's not over her', talk to him about it! What other signs should we be looking for ladies? Do you have any common warning signs that I might have missed? Share!
