Did you think you saw some Signs Your Ex Never Cared About You while your relationship lasted?
It’s hard to forget about a past love, especially if things didn’t end on the best of terms.
If you’re wondering whether or not your ex ever cared about you, here are 13 signs that suggest they never did.
13 Signs Your Ex Never Cared About You
1. They were always more interested in their friends than they were in you.
If your ex always made excuses to go out with their friends, it’s because they were more interested in hanging out with them than they were in spending time with you.
A man that really cared about you, even if he was playing it cool will want to spend time with you.
If you were the one who had to always make plans with them, then it’s a good sign that they weren’t that into you.
They only cared about themselves and their friends made up most of their life at the time.
And yes, it is better that they’re now in the past.
2. They never really made an effort to get to know you or your interests.
If your ex never made an effort to get to know you or your interests, it’s a sign that they never really cared about you.
If they didn’t care about learning more about you, it’s likely that they didn’t bother to find out what your likes and dislikes are which indicates a lack of interest in getting to know you better.
That means they probably never did anything special for you or tried to think up creative ways to make your relationship feel special.
Good thing the relationship is in the past because what’s the point of being with someone who can’t make you feel special?
3. They were always quick to anger.
This is a red flag that your ex never cared about you.
If they were always quick to anger and would often lash out at you over small things, it’s likely that they never really cared about your feelings.
When someone cares about another person, they don’t get angry over petty things they understand their partner’s perspective and work with them to make things better.
4. They would frequently cancel plans.
When you’re in a relationship and something comes up, it’s important to be considerate of your partner’s feelings.
If you’re in a relationship with someone who cares about you and respects your time, they’ll do their best to make sure that any changes to plans are communicated well in advance.
If they cancel or stand you up without notice, it’s pretty obvious that they don’t care about you at all.
If your ex did this often, it might be time to move on for good.
5. They never really put any effort into the relationship.
If your ex didn’t put any effort into the relationship, it’s possible that they never really cared about you in the first place.
For them, it is a function of convenience for them rather than intentionality.
If a person doesn’t care about their relationship with you and all of the good things that could come from it, there’s probably no point in trying to repair it or revive it.
If you try to make them see the good, you’ll have to keep proving the worth of yourself and the entire essence of the relationship.
6. They never put any effort into getting to know your friends and family.
If your ex didn’t put any effort into getting to know your friends and family, it’s possible that they don’t care about your life and the people dear to you.
A person who you love and claim to love you will know about the people in your life as much as he knows you.
It matters that they know things that make you happy, which includes knowing what matters to those closest to you.
If they do not care that much, it’s very good to leave them in your past.
7. They always had an excuse for why they couldn’t spend time with you.
When you’re in a relationship, it’s important to be able to count on your partner.
If they can’t be there for you when you need them, then you’re more in a relationship with yourself and that is a whole lot of work.
If your ex was always making excuses for why they couldn’t spend time with you, it might be because they never cared about the relationship.
They just wanted to have someone who would pay attention to them and as soon as they could find a better prospect, they were out of the relationship.
8. They never truly opened up to you.
You probably already know that one of the key signs your ex never cared about you is if they didn’t open up to you emotionally.
If they weren’t willing to let you into their lives and share their feelings, then it’s likely that they didn’t really care about you in the first place.
They might have gotten caught up in the emotions of the relationship and made promises they couldn’t keep, but that doesn’t mean they were ever truly invested in making it work.
When someone cares, they want to be with a partner who gets them and accepts them unconditionally.
If your ex was always keeping parts of themselves hidden away from you emotionally, then it’s possible that their feelings for you were shallow and fleeting at best.
9. They never listened when you talked about your day or your feelings.
If your ex would rather talk about themselves than listen to you talk about your day, then they probably didn’t care about you.
There’s nothing wrong with talking about yourself.
It’s actually a good thing.
But if all of your conversations centre around them and what they think, then there’s a good chance that you’re dealing with someone who doesn’t care about you and only wants to use you for their own benefit.
10. They always seemed distracted when you were together.
If your ex was always on their phone, or they stopped paying attention to you as soon as they got a text, that’s a sign that they never really cared about you.
They might have just been trying to make it seem like they cared so that they could get what they wanted out of the relationship.
We all get distracted sometimes, but if it’s happening all the time, something else is going on.
11. They always made plans that didn’t include you.
If your ex always made plans with their friends and never asked you to join in, that’s a sign that they didn’t really want you around.
They might have only been trying to keep up appearances so that no one would know how much they disliked you.
If your ex would rather spend time with their friends than with you, that’s not a good sign.
If they’re always making plans that don’t include you, it means they’re not interested in spending time with you.
12. They never talked about the future with you.
If your ex never talked about the future and avoided talking about long-term plans, that’s a sign that they did not have strong feelings for you.
If your ex-partner was planning to move out of town or go back to school in another state and they didn’t make any hint about the future for both of you, then they don’t see you in their new life.
If they’re constantly avoiding talking about things like this, it probably means that they want out irrespective of what led to your break up.
13. They never stuck around when things got tough and always bailed at the first sign of trouble.
It’s easy to run away from problems, but it’s more difficult to face them.
If your ex-partner was always running away from you and never sticking around when things got tough, then this is a sign that they didn’t care about your relationship as much as you did.
They weren’t willing to put in the effort or work hard on your relationship; instead, they ran for the hills at the first sign of trouble.
If your ex exhibited any of these behaviours while you were together, it’s likely because they never really cared about you, to begin with.
It’s best to move on and find someone who will give you the love, attention, and respect that you deserve.
