Have you recently ended a relationship?
Are you struggling with not having contact with your partner since the breakup?
Are you wondering if he’s missing you too?
It’s easy to get caught up in the decision to contact an ex after a breakup. On the one hand, it may seem too desperate to do so. On the other hand, they may be feeling the same pain as you.
That’s why I decided to write this article, especially for you. This will help you figure out how long it usually takes an ex to miss you without you getting in touch.
Your ex may be missing you without you even knowing it, so read on to find out how it happens.
How long does it take for my ex to miss me?
Generally 30 to 60 days. That’s if you follow the rule of not contacting him in any way during that time.
But the truth is, there is no exact time for how long your ex would miss you again. It all depends on who they are and the situation they are in.
Here’s how to speed up this process and make him miss you.
You can find out how much time they need before they start to miss you through the following points:
1. Your experience with past relationships and breakups
If your ex has never been in a serious relationship before, and this is the first time, all these no-contact rules must be weird things for him.
They don’t know what to expect once a relationship ends so they may have an even harder time dealing with the pain.
In that case, he will miss you every day since the moment you broke up.
On the other hand, you are under no obligation to alleviate his pain. They have to deal with it on their own and make peace with reality.
Missing your ex when you’ve just broken up is not unusual. Especially when it’s the first time you experience these things.
2. Your ability to find a new partner
Believe it or not, there are people who can bounce back quickly after a breakup.
These are the ones who miss their ex the least, sometimes they find themselves in a new relationship before they even realize they’ve just broken up with the old one.
This type of person would say “yes” to everyone who came near her after the breakup. They fill the post-breakup period by having fun at nightclubs and signing up for apps like tinder.
Since they have no problem moving on, don’t expect him to talk to you again anytime soon. They can definitely never miss him.
3. Their feeling toward you
The amount of time your ex needs to miss you largely depends on how strong he felt for you while you were dating. When the breakup was forced and not mutual, the emotional baggage after the breakup can be very heavy.
But if you treated him well, respected him, and ended it all right, then he’s likely to miss you pretty much every day.
But if your relationship ended badly, don’t even want him to miss you. His feeling would be completely destroyed and being in a no-contact period doesn’t do any better. You’re not trying to make things better, so the love will fade quickly.
4. They are shy and introverted
An introverted person can hold their feelings very well. The truth is, they will never show if they miss you or not. If they miss you, they’ll be waiting for you to contact them first. And if they still have feelings for you, they’re sure to hide it.
That kind of person isn’t going to find any new lovers anytime soon. This is a huge benefit for you wanting to get back together, as it’s relatively easy to get back into his life.
How should you respond to an ex who misses you?
Now that you’ve figured out how long it takes for an ex to miss you, the next thing you should know is how to respond to it. If your ex suddenly texts you or calls you saying he misses you, what should you do?
It can be difficult to respond to an ex who hasn’t spoken to you in a while. Firstly, because you don’t want to give him false hope, and secondly, because you don’t want to have a problem again, especially with an ex. So here’s how you can respond to them when they’re not in touch:
Talking to an ex again when you’ve just broken up is very tempting. You must be missing him too. But no matter what, you have to be strong, because this is the moment you are cutting contact. Just don’t answer it. And if you want to respond, wait until you’re fully recovered from the breakup.
Keep in mind that they may have a hard time dealing with post-breakup pain. Responding to them won’t help either. Let them deal with their problem so you can deal with yours too.
If you want to maintain a good relationship with him, you can only do so after moving on. And only if they want it too. Healing yourself is more important than anything, and if talking to him again is going to make things harder for you to move on, then just don’t do it.
This is what we can say about how long it takes an ex to miss you. I know starting a breakup can be pretty hard, and maybe you can’t see yourself without it right now, but I’m sure following the tips above will help.
