If you find yourself in such a relationship, where you are very committed to your boyfriend but do not know the course of the relationship, you may be seen as a consolation.
3. He exposes himself a lot with you
Whether he’s showing up with you in front of his friends or his exes, there’s a reason for that.
It’s one thing to be proud of having an amazing girlfriend, but if he’s showing off just for your looks and not for the interior, it could mean he’s using you as a trophy.
4. You face shocking looks from friends
If you’ve faced shocked and surprised looks on his friends’ faces, but your man hasn’t done anything about it, it could be a serious sign that something is wrong.
You would think his friends would know about his new girlfriend and support him, but instead, you feel their disapproval and shock.
5. It’s hot and cold love
His obsession suddenly turns into a cold distance.
He looks a lot more dramatic than any of your boyfriends before him, and you don’t seem to understand why.
You just ended up with a guy who’s still not sure what he wants, because he has his ex who is still stuck in his head.
6. Has mood swings
This is perfectly normal when you think about it. He turned the page, trying to ignore the fact that he was injured, pretending to be a tough guy, etc.
He is happy with you, but as soon as you leave, depression sets in and he is all confused and confronted with emotions that he does not even want to admit to having.
It is difficult to cope with such opposing emotions, which causes him to have intense mood swings.
7. You feel like he is not taking you seriously
Whenever you want to discuss serious issues, it changes the subject or draws your attention to something else.
Whenever you want to take things to the next level, for example he meets your friends, he finds an excuse can’t do it.
He’s just using you to fill the void his ex has left and to pass the time, whether he’s aware of it or not.
8. He refuses to talk about his ex
He behaves strangely when talking about his last ex, pretending that she never existed and that their breakup was nothing, just a game.
When his friends talk about his ex, he changes the subject, not because he cares about your feelings, but because his wounds are still fresh.
This sign is particularly evident if he ended a relationship just a month ago.
9. He calls you when he is lonely, but is careless when he is happy
A clear sign that this is a transitional relationship is when it calls you only when it collapses and needs your attention.
Broken people tend to enter a live relationship after breakup because they need someone’s attention, a quick way to heal from recent wounds.
If you notice that your man is only sharing the bad things with you, but the good things with everyone except you, it may be time to leave him.
10. He has intense emotions when he sees his ex or when someone talks about her
He becomes aggressive, instantly happy, or like a beaten dog. But the most important thing is that his emotions are intense, whether it is anger, false happiness, or sadness.
He still hasn’t recovered from his ex and mentioning his name still hurts him.
Seeing her happy is even worse, because that’s where he tries to improve his game by expressing intense happiness; but the moment it passes, it is sad like an empty fridge.
11. You have nothing in common
This one is pretty obvious. He never chose to go out with you because of the interests you share; you have one thing it needs and unfortunately for you is your body.
At first it’s just fun and games, you devour each other and experience things in ways you couldn’t even imagine, but once it fades, everyone has a normal need to get to know your partner.
For your own good, you should find a way to leave such a relationship, before feelings get mixed up and it all becomes toxic to you.
