So, you called your ex on the phone and they actually picked up!
I’m sure you’re wondering what exactly that means.
So, what does it mean when your ex answers your call? If your ex answers your call it’s likely because they’re still interested in you. Your ex is still open to the idea of being with you, so if that’s what you want this is a good sign.
However, it can mean other things as well.
In this post, I’ll go over some of the possible meanings of your ex answering your call.
What Does It Mean When Your Ex Answers Your Call?
Let’s go over the most common meanings of your ex answering your call:
Your Ex Is Open To The Idea of Being with You
Your ex might still care about you.
They might want to re-kindle your relationship.
Because they like you, they trust you and don’t see the harm in trying again if the worst happens (you break up again).
The thing is, once you’ve been with a person for a long time, it’s hard to let go of them completely.
Some people just can’t seem to forget about the person they once had a relationship with, even if it didn’t work out.
This is why you often see people who break up with their exes still being friends with them.
And in many cases even get back together.
You’ll often see couples that have been together for a long time get back together even after they’ve been separated for months or years.
Your Ex Is Still Interested in You
There are a few scenarios for this.
You Ex Is Interested in You As a Friend
Your ex might still be interested in keeping you around as a friend.
So they might want to talk to you, ask you if you are happy, get your opinion on interesting news items.
They might say something like “Hey, how are you doing” or “How’s life?” to make small talk with you… all of which is normal behavior.
It’s not a guarantee that they want to get back together with you, but at the very least it means they’re not completely over you just yet.
The thing is, some people are never fully over their ex.
This is why you often see cases where people are still friends with each other after a breakup.
Your Ex Is Interested in You in a Romantic Way
Yes, sometimes your ex is interested in getting back together with you.
They might still be attracted to you, but for whatever reason are just not ready to take that step yet.
So what are they doing?
They’re keeping the door open in case something happens in the future.
Your Ex Misses You and Wants to See How You’re Doing
There are people who miss their exes after they’ve broken up.
They might want to get back together, but they also miss you and want to check up on how you’re doing.
So they’ll answer your call.
This isn’t a bad thing, because it means they still care about you.
At the very least, they want to see how you’re going and keep tabs on you.
This is a good way to figure out your ex’s intentions before going after them just yet.
Your Ex Is Wary About Getting Back With You Yet
I know this sounds a bit crazy, but sometimes people just aren’t sure whether they want to get back together.
In this case, they’ll answer your call.
I’m not suggesting that your ex is crazy, but they probably aren’t sure whether they want to get back together yet.
So they’ll go ahead and answer your call to see how you’re doing.
What To Say To Your Ex When They Answer Your Call
It doesn’t matter if your ex is interested in getting back together with you or not.
When your ex answers your call, it’s important to know exactly how you want to handle it.
What I think is best is to be nonchalant.
This means you shouldn’t appear too eager, but also not rude.
It’s important you don’t seem too eager because it seems suspicious.
Your ex might wonder if you’re just calling them to try to get back together with them, which is usually a bad idea.
Don’t Say Too Much
It’s also important that you don’t say too much.
If your ex is having second thoughts about getting back together, they might just see this as a good way to get you off the phone fast.
So, don’t ask your ex if they’re seeing anyone new yet.
If you do, it’ll come off as slightly suspicious.
Keep It Casual
Keep the conversation casual, but don’t say too much.
The key is to keep it simple.
You can ask them how they are, but don’t go into depth about why you called them.
For now, just enjoy talking to your ex.
If you want to get back together, then talk about it when the time is right.
When your ex answers your call, it means they’re still interested in you.
This doesn’t always mean your ex wants to get back with you, but at the very least they want to keep the door open.
However, there is a chance that they might want to try again.
So if that’s what you want, don’t give up just yet.
So that’s what it means when your ex answers your call.
