Signs That Your Ex Is Moving On

Updated February 21, 2017

Relationships end all the time, but it can be hard if you are at the receiving end of the break-up. You may not want to admit it, but your ex may have moved on quicker than you did. This can be hard to fathom, since you thought your relationship with that person meant something special. There are many signs that your ex has moved on, from not calling you to dating someone new right away. It may be hard to think about, but you need to know if your ex has moved on, so you can too.

Your Ex Doesn't Initiate Contact

Your ex may have already moved on if he or she is not willing to talk about the issues you had in the relationship or just not willing to talk to you at all. Your ex may not want to resolve anything with you and may have already started dating other people. If your ex wanted to reconcile with you, he would contact you.

Your Ex Has No Desire to Talk When You Call

If you constantly call your ex and she has no desire to talk with you, that is an indication that she has moved on. It is not a good sign when your ex ignores your calls or hangs up when she realises it is you on the other end.

Your Ex has Removed You from their Social Network Lists

These days almost everyone has a social network account. Your ex has most likely moved on from the relationship if he has removed you from his friends list. If you look at your ex's profile, you can see his list of friends, to see if he has removed you. Another sign that your ex has moved on is if he has changed his status from "In a Relationship" to "Single." Changes to your ex's relationship status are a pretty good indication that he has moved on.

Your Ex Has Started Dating Other People

A clear indication that your ex has moved on is if she has started dating other people. If you had mutual friends, they may be the ones to tell you about your ex's new dating habits. This is also a sign that it may be time for you to start dating again and finding happiness. If your ex has been dating one person for a significant amount of time and they are happy together, she definitly has moved on from the relationship with you.
