After a short time, he disappeared completely without warning— only to reappear six months later with guess what… It definitely wasn’t a love connection, so my best guess about why he texted after months was that he wanted to see if I would even respond at all and… If your breakup was one-sided, say, he knows that you wanted to keep the relationship going but he didn’t, it can simply feel good to call you and remind himself that someone (anyone) cares for him.
A sign your ex is teasing you is if he communicates with you, you respond, and he drops the communication completely all of a sudden.
It’s frustrating and enough to drive you crazy wondering WTF.
You know how some song or smell will randomly remind you of an ex? Like an itch that needs scratching, something will make him think of you and then all of a sudden, there he is, saying “hey… ” He might also want you back or it could be a total fluke. It’s frustrating because it’s usually after you’ve really made an effort to exorcise your ex from your life.
Men will also use this an excuse to talk to you after a breakup when they miss you. This reason sucks, but it’s actually pretty common.
A guy genuinely deciding that mistakes were made and coming back involves a real leap of faith.
