Hey, that's a great question. To give you my perspective as a male, I'm not sure it is possible to fing out whether or not someone is over you emtionally unless of course they are honest enough to tell you.
I posted on here yesterday, because I've just come out of a 6 year relationship (she left me) and we both went into no contact for 9 weeks (this was my decision, I cut off all contact, changed number etc etc).
In that time, of course, everything has pointed to the fact that, physically, we are over each other - as of course there had been no physical contact. However, I know that I have been struggling emotionally as I have missed her so much it's unreal. So no, I am not emotionally over her, even though she probably thinks I am because I have been strong enough to maintain NC. And yes I have been with other girls and been out on dates during the past 9 weeks- none of which came even close to making me feel happy or satisfied.
There is no way of her knowing that emotionally I am nowhere near being over her, of course, unless she came to me and asked me.
If she came to me and asked me, I would be honest with her and tell her exactly how I feel. In my case, we lived together for 6 years and were extremely close.
However, some guys in my situation would also lie about their feelings for fear of further rejection and feeling stupid.
Hope this helps.
