Your ex left you, doesn’t that mean he doesn’t love you anymore? If that was the case, why would your ex leave you and still try to make you jealous? You see, if an ex is trying to make you jealous, they didn’t leave you to lose you … they left you to recover in a completely different way! Here is what you need to know about this situation:
Your ex wants attention – But why would your ex want your attention? It’s because your ex is emotionally COMFORTABLE with you. They know how to read your emotions and understand your reactions; SO they can get the strongest reaction from you, and they can see that, if they make you jealous. This, in turn, attracts the most attention, more than anyone else can provide.
Your ex wants to see how much you love them – Maybe you reacted to the breakup by clinging even more to your ex. This told your ex that you want him in such a strong way that it gave him an ego boost. Now they want to see how much you want them, because it makes them feel good to be wanted so strongly, even if it is the desire of an ex.
Your ex is challenging you – An ex who flaunts a new date in front of you, challenges you to see what you will do to get them back. They are trying to see if you will accept the challenge and will work to win them back whoever they are dating now.
Your ex wants to hurt you – They broke up with you and enjoyed it. Now they are making you jealous and enjoying it too. Some people enjoy psychologically and emotionally watching others suffer; And it is very possible that your ex is one of those people. If you hurt your ex in the relationship, it could also be that your ex is getting revenge.
Your ex wants you back – Sometimes an ex uses the tactic of jealousy to bring his ex-lover back. If you find that your ex is only flaunting it in front of you and no one else; and if they make very obvious attempts for only YOU to notice; then it’s pretty clear that they are trying this tactic on you to get you back.
