So many mixed signals. What should I do? Especially if I do want him back?
Most Helpful Guy
he knows you want him back, so he's possibly trying to use that to drag you along as a backup. i know several guys who have done this. If he starts to get lonely then he decides to get back with his ex.

it might vary based on his age, morals, and personality,
but he's either
1) taking you (or keeping you) for advantage bc he knows you want him back and can easily manipulate you (as in he can fake it if he wanted something from you)
2) he may have broken up with you for a reason other than him losing interest in you/stopped liking you. something external and its hard refraining from someone who he's attracted to/care for esp when you guys were in a relationship before.
but regardless of the reason, pay yourself respect and dignity and leave him completely. put up a iron wall against him and never think of him as a potential, he broke up with you and it doesn't matter what the reason was.
