Why Are Guys Always In Love With Their Ex by sophy09: 3:24am On Mar 16, 2010
Why is it that when a girl leaves a guy and has moved on with her life, the guy will want to come back. That is when he tells you that he had always loved you. He cannot do without you. I left my ex-bf, I do not have any yet but he thinks I do. I'm more focus now on my career, his friends that see me are always complementing me that I'm looking good and I'm making a success out of my career. He has been calling me ever since telling me that he loves and all. Why does he want me back?

@ madlady. . . . . you right, and they'll tell ya 'there's no love like our love'.

Baseless generalisation. Why conclude that men "ALWAYS"? Gotta have all men as your exs to be sure of that.

It's not a "guy thing" sophy. It just stems from missing what they had. Now that it's gone the absence has made the heart grow fonder. Just ignore him or something ehn.

For some ex boyfriends, its not because they love you and want you back for keeps, they just want to prove to their shallow selves that "okafor's law" still applies, it's an ego thing,

You dated a sissy. real men don't run back, instead u gals run back to us.
Re: Why Are Guys Always In Love With Their Ex by niceG: 12:32pm On Mar 16, 2010
Sophy, the fact that u are looking good and also doing well is enough reason for him to want u back.
His friends will always complement u and will also tell him that he had missed something, so he will keep coming even when he is not genuinely in love.

Re: Why Are Guys Always In Love With Their Ex by Eluala(m): 2:09pm On Mar 16, 2010
I think you should give him audience. I do not know the foundation of your relationship in the first place but you have to realise that even though men are supposed to be the 'supermen', most guys are actually the same little boys in big bodies.


I met when my wife when I was a teenager. We were just simple innocent friends and of course no intimacy was involved. So when I grew older, I felt having a wife can't be that easy so I decided to move on, go out there and work hard to find a wife. At least with her out of the way, I will have a clear head. Besides I wanted someone my parents never knew before.

As God would have it, the misadventure led to 2 relationships, which obviously didn't go anywhere. By this time it has been close to 3 years since I took off and having secured a decent job with one of the oil majors, I badly needed someone I could settle down with and guess what, it was like my eyes opened and I then appreciated what I had lost. I have at least seen other things and I could compare very well.

Goodnews is that I went to her with truck load of apologies, gifts, cards etc. Infact, I think I even shed some tears then, you know that kind thing. By God's design, there was no one else (I actually did not how much she was in love with me and I guess if she had told me then, my useless African man bias would probably has damaged things further) and she was still missing me.

The rest is history as we've been married for --- going to 6 years now and with 2 lovely kids, ours is a model of a marriage relationship.

Bottomline, give him audience and if you are in love with him, please let him know too. All the best.

@poster,


Most times, memories and incedences in the new relationship.

It is normal to disagree on certain issues while in a relationship which could bring seperation.Now u are not in a new relationship and u are not married yet so for now its mere seperation untill you start a new relationship.

Most times if relationships break-up reputably, I mean without betrayals or criminal implications, both parties go ahead to learn on plain grounds and may find out their wrongs and make up.

But I tell you most times, guys try to make u believe their "we have done it before and we can do it again sweet talks" sometimes they are not real.

My cousin's ex after getting married to another lady was singing "i love you till i die song, not even my wife can stop it, i will keep u and she told the man well, i think the best thing for them to elope and the man never called again showing he loves his wife and was only trying to have her for fun.

Re: Why Are Guys Always In Love With Their Ex by Pip(m): 3:07pm On Mar 16, 2010
Straight up Booty Call. One thing miss about my is the BJ she gave. She was the best at. It was the only thing she good at besides nagging. Besides that, nothing to miss. So, I know when ever I call her is an attempt to get the BJ. But I know it wouldn't come easy. She would want more than that, and start bitching me again, same ol'rat race. Just a fantasy though of doing it again. Wouldn't want to go through that torment of a relationship again.
Re: Why Are Guys Always In Love With Their Ex by slap1(m): 3:08pm On Mar 16, 2010
Methinks it's more like "lust after", not luv.

@ madlady. . . . . you right, and they'll tell ya 'there's no love like our love'.


Puhleaseee haven't I heard this same line! One even told me "No other man can love me the way he loved me" Yeah Right but he was messing with some other woman that wasn't even competition to me!


@topic

Its so typical of some men. . .they just don't know what they have till they loose it! Then when they see that yes life actually goes on without them. . .they start coming up with all sort of bull crap!

for most of them it isn't actually because they love or miss you. . .its just to stroke their wounded ego!
Re: Why Are Guys Always In Love With Their Ex by Dyt(f): 3:31pm On Mar 16, 2010

Re: Why Are Guys Always In Love With Their Ex by BlueDiva: 3:33pm On Mar 16, 2010
If your ex was a good person, you're bound to miss him/her.
People usually don't know what they've got till it's gone. It applies to both gender.
Re: Why Are Guys Always In Love With Their Ex by denony(m): 3:35pm On Mar 16, 2010
thats for men with low braveness

@ but girls are best at that, they always like to know every bit of your step.
