Sometimes in life it takes time to completely close the 'X-Files'. By the X-Files I obviously mean someone's baggage from a past relationship. A lot of people want to move forward from an incomplete or bad relationship to get over the last person they were dating as soon as possible. While there are other ways to do it, the easiest way is to jump to another person, just so you can forget the last person you were dating. A lot of women adopt this process as well and sometimes they're not able to get over their ex.

But if you're with someone or like someone and have an inkling they're still hung up over their ex, you should definitely give them their due time and space to completely get over whatever they're hung up on, before you move any further. If you don't do that, you'll always find yourself compromising situations you rather not be a part of!
Here are 5 obvious yet subtle warning signs she's not over her ex and you need to movie out of her way pronto!(1) She Will Keep Bringing Him Up In Conversations
Be it a negative conversation or a positive one about her past, her ex seems to come up a lot. If it's a girl you're meeting for the first time and she randomly talks about her ex-boyfriend a lot, you have to know she's not entirely over him. Yes, if it's a new relationship, talking about your past is healthy, in order to know your SO a little better. But if her past keeps coming up in conversations she has with you then you should be wary about the fact that she's not over her ex boyfriend entirely.
(2) He's Everywhere You Guys Plan To Go
She invites you to a friend's party, he's there. She asks you to accompany her to her favourite bar, he's there. She takes you out to a pet festival and he's there with his dog. Coincidence? I think not! Either she knows the places he frequents so she can take you there and make him jealous or catch a glimpse of him or she just wants to run into him because she's not over him! If you see that happen a lot, then you know she's not over him!
(3) She's A Different Person Around Him
If she's still into her ex, you will notice her body language change accordingly, whenever he's around. She'll either become very conscious of his presence and behave awkwardly or she'll put her arms around you to make him jealous. If she is indifferent towards his presence, then you have nothing to worry about.
(4) She Compares Her Current Situation To Her Past
If you find yourself or the situation you're in with her a constant comparison to her past, then she's definitely still delving into it. It's not your fault if she compares you, so don't take it like that. Every relationship is different and if she's continuously comparing you, she needs to get over her past!
(5) She's Constantly In Touch With Him
While it's healthy to end a relationship in a good way or end it on amicable terms and it's okay to remain friends with your ex, if there is really nothing left there, it's not okay if she's chatting and talking to him every day, while you're around. Even if they're talking over the phone often, there is definitely something to worry about. It definitely means there is some unfinished business there.
So, it's really not rocket science to figure if the girl you're into is in fact still into her ex. You just need to pay attention to these subtle, yet obvious signs and save yourself some trouble!
