You send teary voicemails
If you are still sending teary, drunken, I want you back type voicemails to your ex man, then you are definitely not over him. The same goes if he is still among your speed dial contacts.
Social media stalking
Obsessively stalking your ex partner’s social media profile is a clear sign you haven’t yet moved on from your relationship. Even if your ex seems to be having the time of his life on social media, it’s probably not the case.
Mutual friend interrogation
Firing hundreds of questions about your ex man at your mutual friends won’t help you move on and find a more positive mindset. Being hung up on who your ex is dating and what he’s doing means you're still a bit in love with him.
Men’s fashion boutique
Oversized t-shirts and sweats are in this season, but keeping your ex’s clothes is totally out! If you aren’t ready to let go off your man’s stuff, then you are emotionally hanging onto him.
Flicking through old photo albums and reminiscing about the good old times you spent together is proof you are not over him.
You still love him
No matter how hard you try to forget about him and move on, your love for him just won’t go away.
You’re not you
You feel different but not necessarily in a good way, like you have lost half of your previous self.
When you think of your future, you don’t feel excited, in fact you feel terrified at the thought of being alone and having to make important decisions.
Ben & Jerry’s stock
Your freezer is full of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough, which gets demolished on a regular basis in front of a tear-jerking rom com.
Tears, tears, tears
You try your hardest to hold back the tears, but somehow they just escape and at times for no apparent reason.
Constantly on your mind
Wherever you go and whatever you do, there is always something or someone that reminds you of him. You just can’t get him out of your head.
You keep asking yourself this pesky little question. ‘What if I had done things differently, would he still want to be with me?’
Dating scares you
Dating someone else really freaks you out and really doesn’t excite you, you would literally rather do anything else.
If the Ross Geller effect has hit you and you keep telling everyone you’re fine even though deep down you’re not, then you definitely aren’t over your ex.
