How do you know the signs you'r ex misses you and wants you back? Is initiating contact a good sign? Because my ex boyfriend has been initiating contact since we broke up every week. He contacted me the first Friday after asking how I was and then the next weekend after that where we talked a bit more and then that Thursday again. Its not everyday but its at least once or twice a week. I also initiated contact last night, which I have not done but thought I should. he answered and he was out with his freinds but still talked. The convo was just about what we were doing etc and we talked until 3am from 10pm.
