My ex broke up with me after dating 2 years. We’re both 48. I didn’t argue, beg, call, text, etc.... it’s been 3 months and he still randomly texts me or makes some sort of contact. He doesn’t go out of his way to lead me on but does say things like “he’s still watching me”, no that’s not in a creepy way. The break up was unexpected but he’d said that he thought by now he would want me to move in but he just didn’t see it. Is there anything I can do to pique his interest again? We’re not connected on social media anymore although I know he still looks through mutual friends. about 3 weeks ago I texted him and told him I missed him, he never acknowledged that text but has been in contact since. Anyway, I’m at a loss, I won’t have him but I love him still and truly believed he was “it” for me. I believed he felt the same. And his contacting me leads me to believe I’m right...or is that just wishful thinking?
He's showing signs of interest. But I do understand why you're in a confusing situation because he is sending mixed signals. I think you may have jumped the gun with the text saying you missed him. He may have not responded or not in the way you'd hope because he's not on the same wavelength as you right now. I recommend taking things slower and start with casual conversations without talking about your relationship status.
I’ll stay away from any “missing him” texts. I’m not even sure if I’ll hear from him again or not. I have not been reaching out to him, he’s the one doing that, but it’s about once a week or two. I just don’t know what else I can do so he’ll see that we are meant for each other. Is there even anything I can do?
