Moving on after a breakup is never easy.

Some people will actually pretend to be in love but in real sense they are only trying to get over their ex.

The last thing you want is to date a man who tells you that they love you but the truth is that they still love their ex.

And unless you want to be caught up in a love fiasco, you should run for your dear life the moment you know that your man is still in love with their ex.

A guy who has moved on and is over his ex will have no issues with his ex moving on. But if your boyfriends gets angry or jealous anytime he gets a word that his ex is dating, that’s a red flag. He is probably in love with her and can’t stand to see her ex with another man.

5. He is not ready to commit

If the relationship is just for play, then it’s okay not to commit. But if you are serious and your guy is always giving excuses and doesn’t seem to be ready to commit, he is definitely not sure about you. Most likely, he is trying to work out things with his ex and doesn’t want to commit to you because he would rather commit to his ex.
