  • Depend what kind of person he is. If he the kind who like attention then its a good way to get one. When a guy in love then break up, they tend to act strong in the eyes of his ex and his friends. Post break up syndrome for guys happens weeks after the break up

    • Post break up syndrome? Examples?

    • I called it post break up syndrome, in girls it happened right after the break up.
      For example is like the questions whether break up is the right thing to do, how you missing him so much but have to held back due to break up, the cries, the blues, etc.
      For guys it happens late, weeks or even months after break up.

Most Helpful Girl

  • Follow random guys too. Post a sexy selfie. His dick will cry tears of regret for eternity and mourn.

  • If he loves you, he will definitely call you. If he didn't call you, then simply leave him. Stop thinking about him. Busy yourself in your work. There are so many good guys in this world. You will surely find another guy who care for you and your relationship. And please, don't cry. Those tears are worth millions

  • There's more to it than that I think. He could have moved on. Or he could be trying to move on. He could be trying to make it look like he's moved on when he hasn't. Or he could be expressing a new kind of freedom he had missed for the period of time he was in a relationship

  • Won't vote could mean either. Right now he is in that "rebound" phase and uncomfortable alone. He is doing what we all do and making the mistake of thinking he is ready to start another relationship when he should be focusing on being comfortable alone again.

  • if he is doing that and if its making you envious and you want him back then his trick has worked though it could be intentional or unintentional because many guys do it for just for moving on aswell. But if that matters to you in slightest way that means you are not over him yet and just a simple message can sort things out and even if it doesn't trying never hurts right?

  • You asked this question before. He doesn't want to be with you. Stop being a crazy ex bitch and stalking him. Leave him alone.

    • @DrIdo I gave her good advice, she responded with the rage. Bitch deserves zero respect for being an abusive cunt that forced her boyfriend into dumping her stupid ass. Her insults are very amusing though. I'm surprised she takes herself so seriously when she has absolutely no integrity what-so-ever and will literally be crying herself to sleep for a few weeks whilst refreshing her Instagram and stalking her ex. :D

    • Advice is not good advice when you insult her by saying she's a "crazy ex bitch" or "abusive cunt" or an "abusive psychopath stalker"

      Here's some advice for you:
      Try to formulate your opinion in a more formal way that doesn't insult people you know nothing about.

  • I'm agreeing with the individual who mentioned distracting themselves.

    They now have to deal with being alone. It sucks and is lonely.

    Social media is a good outlet for reducing such feelings of loneliness.

  • Neither of your answers is right. Think before what happened so you broke up. Then look into yourself and his do you want the same relationship back. If you do then why did he stop what did yoi do wrong. If you can fix everything he'll cone back. That doesn't mean you need to fix anything you don't like.

  • Liking pics on Instagram is just that. You see a pic you like and you double tap, nothing more. I do it when ever I'm bored mostly. But if he's having conversations with the girls he's liking, that's a different story. Then he may be trying to establish a connection.

  • When you've lost something and don't know if you can get it back, you try to replace it in case it doesn't come back; he's preparing for the prospect of it being a permanent break up even though he may not want it to be.

    I'm surprised at how pessimistic the girls are voting.

  • its not that he might come back, OR that he never will, it's just that since the breakup he now has the freedom of doing what he wants without arguing with the girlfriend, it may become something in the future if he connects well enough with a new girl

  • When a half decent guy is with a girl he restrains himself in order to not have those questions like "Why are you fallowing this girl?" Seriously though, we hate those sort of questions. once the relationship is over he unrestraines himself and does his own thing again. and yes, he has probably moved on.

  • He's afraid that he'll fall for her in an instant the girl and he talk...
    So he starts talking to other girls, flirt and sometimes even go on a date to give her a signal to hate him
    That guy deeply still loves the girl but he also sees the trouble both have when in a relation.
    Either he doesn't like her behaviour or some other problem due to which they broke up!

  • How sucking opinions actually the person is in pain and he is looking for someone to know his pain n stand for him in opposite gender.

  • Thing is why are people so expected to get back with an Ex? Reason they are an ex leave them in the dust, follow some guys yourself, get a new hobbie anything to improve yourself and show what they are missing

  • None of these options are realistic. They are too far apart from reality. Guys just like to look at girls, whether they are in a relationship or not. Don't question those things to much and think about moving on yoirself :)

  • One of 2 things: 1) he's throwing himself out there in an attempt to distract himself from his pain, or 2) he knows you're able to see and he is trying to hurt you because he is in pain.

  • I'm doing that right now. Speaking for myself, moved on? No I haven't.
    Would i get back with her?
    Slim chance, if it failed once why not again, i'd struggle to decide over potentially being happy with her forever, or getting hurt again.

  • i've been doing that a few times. the reason of that is to try finding new love and also a try to move on. it didn't work out like that because getting a new girlfriend after a breakup is more likely a reassurance than new feelings

  • He's is trying to divert his mind. But guys are emotionally fool.. few good words and they might come back. So if u want him back... try to reach him... but dobt become psyco... draw some lines and understand if its really over

  • I can't vote for one or the other but, it's my personal opinion that when you break up, it's usually over. Also I think girls get over guys quicker and are dating quicker.

    Sad he has to go to Instagram for that.
    He's boosting someone's ego and social standing tho.

    • U r half correct

    • Waiting*

    • Know not waiting want someone to listen n share his pain next relationship takes time tht too know guarantee so he just want someone to depend on thtsy

  • I think he wants to get his mind off of his ex. I don't think you can tell if he comes back from this. It's never good if exes get back together though.
