Top 4 Reasons Why Your Ex Will Come Back


The Reappearing Man. What does it mean when your ex comes back?

Has this happened to you or some other person you know before? People get into a relationship, have fun, enjoy each other, break up, move on, and meet again. It's almost as if destiny is playing a game.

So why do men do this? 

Don't worry, sometimes even men don't understand what they are doing but they do it anyway. Ask any good detective and they can tell you that most good criminals like to go back and check on the crime scene. For some reasons, this is the same with men with broken relationships.
But why do men reappear you ask? Well, there are a number of possible reasons why men come back.

Here is a list of the reasons:

  1. Men want to let you know they have changed and that they are a better person — Men know when they are the reason why a relationship broke down. Men are still affected by these things more than women expect them to be. Because of this, men like to go back to a person they have wronged before just to show that they have changed. They may have been childish or irresponsible before but that boy might have changed into a real man. It may not necessarily be as a form of mockery but more of a reality check. Meeting an old partner may force some forgotten memories that will remind him of what they no longer have and he may want to re-kindle a lost romance as a better man.
  2. Men want to know if you have changed — this is pretty elementary but people hardly get this reason. It can mean two things — one would be that we just want to check up on an old flame and the second one would be to prove to himself that he is better off today than before. The second one is more common though. A lot of men like to prove to themselves that it was not their fault when they broke up. When a man sees an old flame and realizes she is still the very same person, it gives them a false sense of victory.
  3. Some men want control — That's why they like to drive more than often. This is also the reason why most men like to have control of their relationships.  Many guys reminisce and remember a good time when they had an unhealthy control of whatever was around them including their women. When you try to think about this, it is only obvious that men like to look back and check in on a woman they have controlled before. This is not the case for everyone but there are a small handful this applies to. This goes hand in hand with their deep need to win. 
  4. Men just want to come back to win you back — Rarely, men admit to themselves that they have lost and are ready to win back the girl they love. This happens when a man messes things up with a person they really like. They go away, re-trace, and realize that they made a biggest mistake. When this happens, a man might reappear and hope that he still has that reserved spot he left behind. This is most women's favorite reason of why he reappears, he has had time in his cave and realizes you are his one and only.
