Most Helpful Guy
Your ex has been in relationship with you. He established a strong link with you. Whe you broke up, the link became weeker, but still exists.
So, you ex still loves you, not as much as when you were together, but it's still strong when the break-up is not old ("not old" means "from a hour to two years" depending on the relationship you had, how much the guys loved you and his hability to find quickly someone else).0
