Men are more sensitive than women– even though they will never, ever admit it..
Keep in mind that no matter why he came back months later, it’s best to take a wait and see approach with him– especially if you liked him the first time around. there are the tantalizing texts and calls, flirty Facebook messages, and maybe things even get a little intimate… It feels like suddenly something snaps in him, and he starts to withdraw… To make things worse, if it’s happened once, it’s usually happened before.
After a short time, he disappeared completely without warning— only to reappear six months later with guess what… It definitely wasn’t a love connection, so my best guess about why he texted after months was that he wanted to see if I would even respond at all and… If your breakup was one-sided, say, he knows that you wanted to keep the relationship going but he didn’t, it can simply feel good to call you and remind himself that someone (anyone) cares for him.

Do you ever feel like your love life is filled with nothing but one unrequited love story after another?
Ever been out somewhere with a friend and out of the blue, they ask about your ex? Whether you had actual unfinished business or not, often a guy will circle back around to a lukewarm relationship after he gave someone else a try and it didn’t work out.
This happens most after the demise of a long-term relationship.
For example, at one point I met this guy named James.
In between non-love connection dates, James and I shared American Psycho jokes over text message.
Often his actions aren’t much more premeditated than a simple idle thought about you, then subsequent text message.
He might say something funny or make an inside joke that you both shared.
Another common time this happens is if you happened to be a little bit clingy during or after the breakup. There are other signs your ex still loves you, like remorse, wanting to discuss the breakup, and making an effort to get back in your good graces.
