Sounds funny, but ask yourself, have you ever suffered before going to bed, when you’re finally alone, drawn under the bedclothes, and while you keep your eyes closed you imagine situations that once filled your time with the happiness?
Have you ever shed a tear along a particular song that just reminded you of someone, whom you already lost?
When you are going through some of the places where you used to be happy with a particular person, and now you’re alone, do you imagine your silhouettes embraced and happy as they used to?
And if at all you are looking for something related to his-her? Same eyes? Lips? View? things that remind you of him or her? And then you realize that it occurs just once, but who knows when?
You might convince yourself that you got over your first love, but there’s still a chance that she/he is there, and that you may not be aware of it.
It is normal that you miss the person with whom you’ve spent a lot of time and for whom you are linked with many memories, but it’s important to know when it’s enough.
However, this phase of regret can take a lot longer than you think. These are signs that you have not yet got over your ex!
1. When you hear your song, and you still get the shakes
“Seriously, dear radio why do you have to play that song just when I’m listening to?” When you hear your song, you revive all those lovely moments you spent together.
2. After a few drinks, you begin tearing
Since you broke up, whenever you get a little time to relax, you drink some alcohol, and old love returns to your memory. Stop consuming alcohol until you become sure that it will not take you back in time.

3. You are looking for strange reasons to stay in touch
But … once ran that commercial and he/she just liked it, he/she compared us, and it was hilarious… that’s our thing …” Yes, you still remember. Totally legitimate way to approach the story again, which causes an avalanche of thoughts to him/her. Repeat: Put down that phone.
4. Seek him/her
You invariably seek for him/her in a not-so-subtle way in some places where you know he/she is hanging around. So what? It happened by chance to be where you play basketball on Saturdays! “Or,” Accidentally happened that I go to the gym where you go too!

6. Stalking him/her on social networks

You still keep in touch with your mutual friends. It often happens that couples have mutual friends, which sometimes can be a “double-edged sword.” You will often hear about those friends what is going on with your first love, but if you want to make peace with him/her, that’s the right way to find out everything you want.
