Worried your ex is gone for good?
Have they slipped out of your grasp?
Do you still have a chance to win them back?
In this short article, I’m going to help you answer the question, “Is My Ex Moving On”
Is My Ex Moving On?
First, a word of warning: worrying about this particular topic is usually a total waste of time.
It’s totally natural to wonder what your ex is up to, what they’re thinking or feeling about you or about your relationship…. But, in reality, you’re never going to know for sure.
You can spend hours analyzing their latest Instagram post or re-reading those old text messages, but the simple fact of the matter is that none of that stuff is going to help you win them back
It’s always better to focus on the things that are within your control… the things that you can do to change your situation and improve your odds.

Signs Your Ex Is Moving On
There are six signs that could mean that you’ve lost your ex for good, or at least that they’ve begun moving on.
Sign #1: It’s been a long time since your breakup.
Woooow, this is a shocker, isn’t it? Obviously the amount of time since your breakup is going to make a difference to their feelings towards you… occasionally time can actually be a good thing, but generally speaking the longer it’s been since you broke up, the more likely it is that your ex is moving on.
Sign #2: Your ex stops making any attempt to contact you.
Again, this can occasionally not mean anything–who knows, maybe your ex is employing my No Contact strategy!
But more likely, it means they’re just no longer thinking about you that often anymore, which obviously suggests they’ve moved on.
Now, just because he or she isn’t reaching out to you doesn’t mean you need to give up hope — but it’s not usually a good sign.
Sign #3: He or she has been dating someone new for more than a month or two.
Rebound relationships are typically something people jump into after a breakup to numb the pain and post-breakup emotions, and very few last more than a couple of months… but if your ex has indeed been dating someone new for more than a month or two, that’s not a great sign.
Sign #4: Your ex doesn’t respond at all to your attempts to incite jealousy.
This is a tough one to evaluate if you’re not really communicating with your ex very often, but if you’ve used some of the tactics I describe in my Ex Factor program to carefully incite some jealousy and you’re not getting any kind of reaction at all from your ex… that can definitely be a bad sign.
Sign #5: Your ex doesn’t reply or doesn’t seem interested when you bring up inside jokes or happy memories from your time together.
Essentially, someone who has completely moved on and recovered from a breakup is going to be a lot less receptive to nostalgia.
If you’ve tried to make him or her laugh with an old inside joke, or brought up a really memorable moment you shared when you were together, and you don’t get a positive reply or any reply at all… it might mean he or she is moving on.
In fact, bringing up happy memories or inside jokes, is one of the signs that your ex still loves you.
Sign #6: Your ex is ignoring you, or acts cold and seems uninterested in continuing any kind of conversation.
Well, this final sign is pretty self-explanatory, I think… when you don’t have feelings for someone, it’s a lot less likely that you’ll put in the effort to continue a conversation or show interest in his or her life.
So, if you find conversations with your ex go nowhere and he or she seems cold and indifferent, it could also indicate they’re getting over you and your breakup. This is not the case if your ex is hot and cold.
