What is the no-contact rule?
The no-contact rule is a period when you decide not to call your ex after the breakup, either to make them miss you or to help you recover from the breakup. It is one of the ways to make your ex miss you and the ways to get back with your ex if you still want them back.
The no-contact rule is powerful because it makes your ex miss a lot about you. It is believed that when lovers stay apart, their love wax stronger because “absence makes the heart grow fonder,” says Sextus Propertius, a Roman Poet.
When you go no contact with an ex, you are essentially saying that you don’t want to communicate with them anymore. This can be a very powerful way to get your ex to realize that you are serious about moving on. By cutting off communication, you are forcing your ex to face the reality that the relationship is over.
Although it is not easy to predict what goes on in a guy’s mind during no contact, there are signs that tell a guy misses you after some months of not communicating with him. And in this post, I shall reveal certain things about the male mind during no contact.
Below are the signs that tell your ex-boyfriend misses you during the no-contact period.

1. He’s in a rebound relationship
If he has started a new relationship during the no-contact period, that is a rebound relationship and a sign he misses you during no-contact. He’s into a new relationship because he’s trying to cope with the loneliness and his inability to communicate with you.

It can be your friends or people who know your whereabouts that he inquires from. This shows he is feeling your absence and the no-contact period.

4. He engages with your social media posts
Another way to know if no contact is making him miss you is that he engages with your social media posts. This can be in the form of liking your pictures or dropping a simple comment on your posts. This might be a signal that he has been looking at or following your posts since you have not been communicating with each other.

6. He contacts you out of the blues
When an ex-boyfriend suddenly calls to check up on you, it is a sign he is missing you without contact. People only send text messages or put calls across to their ex out of the blue if they have been missing their ex.
7. He flirts with your friends
If your friend has ever told you that your ex-boyfriend texted them or is trying to flirt with them, it is another sign that shows no contact is working on your ex and he is missing you. Guys often turn to the nearest or available girls whenever they’re missing their woman (either an ex or not). All they will do is flirt with the available girls to help them deal with their loneliness.
8. You often stumble into each other
If you can’t seem to be running into each other during no contact, then your ex-boyfriend might be deliberately doing that just to see you since you have not been communicating with each other, and they’re seriously feeling your absence in their life.
