Some exes usually do not go away quickly. It is almost as if they don’t understand what it means for a relationship to be over. So they keep texting you and reaching out in other ways as if everything is still the way it used to be as if that breakup never happened.
\We have explained here all the struggles you feel when you have an ex like this, but if you are wondering why they still reach out to you, here are five possible reasons why.
1. They don’t know how to move on
For some people, moving on is not an easy concept to grasp. Either that or they try hard to pretend the breakup did not happen.
You will need to be firm to let this type of ex know that you meant it when you said you were no longer interested in their relationship.
2. You found someone else
At other times, exes text you when they hear or see on your social media page that you have someone else. Depending on how the relationship ended, they could do this to either congratulate you or to.
3. They want to spite you
Yes. Some exes are petty like that. They could call, text, or drop a message on your social media timeline to say something silly about your new partner’s looks or just as annoying.
4. Looking for a second chance
Sometimes, an ex could just be texting you to get back. Texts may come from them if they realize they could have done better when they had you and now desire another opportunity to make things right and treat you nicely.
5. They’re lonely
They could just be feeling lonely and miserable.
An ex could just be horny and decide to check if you would be down for a reenactment of the great sex you used to have when you were a couple.
