Excellent question and one which should carefully considered.
Think about the following.
Does it seem to you that your ex is paying you a bit more attention, flirting with you a bit or wanting to spend more time with you of late?
If this is so then there is a bit of light on the horizon and it looks like you may get back together with your ex, but don’t jump the gun on this one. Take your time!
These are definitely, common signs that your ex is interested in getting back together with you.
If you want to get back with your ex, do not simply jump into things.
Play things down a bit and play a little bit hard to get, but in moderation only, as this is probably what your ex will best respond to anyway.
Don’t jump back into that relationship headfirst, as you may find that your ex will start pushing you back again.
If your ex is giving out signals that he or she wants to get back with you, the odds are because, it was you playing hard to get that led to the renewed interest in the first place.
Generally when you and your ex break up, there is of course a natural level of missing one another, and longing to get back together. This is most true following of a relationship that has lasted a year or more.
Your ex is probably going to miss you no matter what, because of how many memories were shared together during that time you were together. But there are other emotions that come into play including past regrets. If you are thinking "does my ex want to get back with me" the odds are that your ex may be thinking the same thing for the same reasons.
Occasionally when an ex shows interest again following a break up however, it is only a game. They may be well aware that you love them, and they may simply be trying to get attention, without actually having any intention of getting back together.
Bear this in mind and make sure that your ex really is genuinely interested in spending time with you.
It may be that they are just be passing time because they have no other prospects on the horizon. And worst of all they may see this as away to get revenge for some perceived wrong. This it is vitally important not to jump the gun, and why you should focus on reading into the situation before you act on it.
This is common, and a lot of people find themselves wondering "does my ex want to get back with me?", but the truth is, its better to get a feel for the situation before you act.
In reality, if your ex does want to get back with you, playing hard to get (in moderation) is the best way to go because it will prevent you from getting hurt again, if your ex is not really serious about getting back with you.
