Why is my ex trying to make me jealous?

He broke up with me 2 weeks ago but insisted that we stay friends. I told him I couldn't when I still have feelings for him right now and went into no contact. He has been posting pictures with girls that he's talked about not liking before, so why is he suddenly doing this? What does he want from me?

  • Just because he is posting pictures of himself with other women doesn't automatically mean he's trying to make you jealous. However, if we assume that he is trying to make you feel that way, then he is just immature and wants to get a reaction out of you.

    I would just ignore it. Also, just because he "insisted to remain friends" doesn't mean you HAVE to. If you don't want to be friends then don't. Unfriend/unfollow him from social media, ignore his texts or messages, and simply remove yourself from the situation. You don't owe him your time and attention. You should do whatever you feel is best for YOU.

  • Usually in breakups, when you are so willing to distance yourself from the one who broke up with you, it kind of makes the other person:

    1) Miss you
    When you stop being available to him so suddenly after being regularly available, a part of him may start missing you, even if it was his choice to break up. It is still human nature to miss the person you are so used to.

    2) Insecure
    When he sees that you can easily just stop talking to him even though HE is the one who let you go, he might start feeling kind of insecure. Thoughts like "why is she having it easy? Am I not worth her getting sad for losing me or something?" "She already moved on? What did she find someone better already? was I that disposable?"

    Whatever the reason is, he would be trying to get your attention to get you to contact him first or at least get a reaction out of you so that his insecurities could die down or he can satisfy his longing for you without having to initiate.

    I am not saying that those HAVE to be the possibilities, but they are very likely to be the case.
    My advice to you though, stick to no contact. If he regrets letting you go, he should contact first. otherwise, don't satisfy his attempts to draw your attention.

  • don't acknowledg it. and don't try to 'get him bak' by posting other guys and pics with other guys etc... only shows he can't be happy without having to be constantly reassured by someone which is the definition of insecurities. .

  • It sounds a little blurry, since based on those pics you can't be sure it's even about you. If it it though then he's just being bitter.

  • i suggest you do not stay friends with you ex. you have a connection and are attracted to eachother... friends are friends because there is no sexual attraction towards eachother.
    if i was you, i would cut it off. delete him off social media, the 'wound' is still fresh.. my boyfriend broke up with me 3 months ago and i am still thinking about him. it gets easier trust me

  • I agree with this 100%!!! Once you remove yourself from the situation I am sure he will try to contact you trying to figure out why you stopped talking to him.

  • It's bad news when he breaks up with you and wants to stay friends. Nothing good can come from it. Block him now before he can manipulate you more.

  • Question is: Does he talk to you or send you messages or pictures of those girls with him?

    1. Could be just his friends.
    2. He is doing what he wants to do.
    3. He is probably attracted to them.
    4. If he is not giving you a signal like "Come back for me" or "Come get me," then he's probably no trying to make you jealous.
    5. You probably think he's making you jealous but he's absolutely nothing testing you or trying to.
    6. He could be making you jealous.
    7. He could be making you mad by signalling you by the pictures of him with other girls saying that these girls are my type or what he is interested in now.
    8. We don't know what or how he really feels or think.
