Would you say these are signs that an ex is "reaching out"?

    - My ex contacted after 8 months of no contact.

    - She seemed keen to meet up, but probably changed her mind.

    - She then attempts to add me back on Facebook several times. (I had removed her off my friends list).

    - Lastly I get a weird text from my best friend (who is friends with her too). It was a picture of her at some get together. She knew that he had sent the picture to me.

    What can you deduce from this?

    You've written two threads on this, haven't you?

    Look ex's are ex's for a reason. My ex finally sent my stuff back about a year of no contact, and I literally thought nothing of it. I didn't see it as an attempt to annoy me, I didn't see it as an attempt to get back together. Items went in the drawer. Boom! Done!

    Unless an ex expressly says they want to get back together AND THEN actions it, then you ignore them. Don't pay attention to breadcrumbs mate, it'll do your head in!

    yep definitely reaching out, why though i don't know. when it comes to women its more complicated. either she wants to get back together or she wants you as a friend or it could be because she just wants to know what is going on in your life - stalkerish tendencies that some exes get, when they break up with you but are obsessed with knowing who you are going out with now. if your close friends aren't giving her much info then she'll probably try and befriend you to know...
