There are different situations.
If you broke up a long time ago and continue to communicate periodically in a common company, you have each other as friends, and, accordingly, in the feed, then a like may mean nothing
But another question, if you broke up badly, and not so long ago, and you are not friends with each other, then the question is why you are deliberately looking for your ex on the network, you find and like his photo, in this case the motive was, it remains to be understood what) the picture is aggravated by the fact that the current one does not like from the word at all and in general you rarely give out likes to anyone.
It's funny that most of those who answer the question why guys like exes are girls. How do you know? Only a few leave in an amicable way and continue to communicate, in most cases people cover each other with dog shit, or they simply barricade themselves with indifference, experiencing a break in relations inside, and both the one who was abandoned and the one who abandoned. The one who actively threw likes because he / she thinks that if he / she pays attention to the one who was thrown, it will give moral strength to the person, like he is not such a dumbass / dumbass and in general he / she is a cucumber, And the one who was thrown can like from the position "Yes -Yes, of course you left me / la, but I'm not holding on to a cucumber, like I'm not as shit as you think / thought, so I can like like, like I have all the rules, I don't cry in my pillow and life goes on. Trying to return or control the likes of the one who threw you is a diagnosis, the one you threw pffff .. smacks of sadism 8D
that's how men are arranged. after a while, the girl gets bored and a quarrel breaks up. and then six months later I want to have sex with her again. just do not rush to extremes and exaggerate in a woman's way that he loves dries wants to return, and so on and so on. just wants to pokuvyrkatsya. sex with ex is inexpensive nice
It seems to me that in this way the former makes it clear that although you broke up, it does not mean that you no longer exist for each other. Also, perhaps he thinks like this: "I will put a like, because I do not want her to think that she has become an empty place for me, because this is not so at all!".
Maybe I'm going to write an enchanting nonsense, but what if she just has cool photos that he likes? .. Or the likes certainly mean something like "I want you back, my sweetie"?
why not one of the madams who are ready to send to the globe and show the door can not understand one fact that parting with a former lover, a guy can be normal. no scandals, no hysterics. that you can not just leave a person hanging out as friends, but also remain friends, give advice, discuss something, or just hang out in the same company. I have a couple of ex-boyfriends, and oh, horror, I sometimes like them, not because I purposefully go in, but because it's true, I just got beautiful photographs in the news. you can be happy for your former passion, that he / she found someone or just got prettier not to look for ways to go back and not to compare. so a like is usually just like.
I dare to assume - there may be a guy's multi-move. A girl's desire to remind her of herself: "I'm watching you!"
We really perceive "likes" differently. Girls are used to seeing subtext in everything, but for a man it is probably more of a mechanical action. Regardless of the reasons for "like": whether you want to remind about yourself or just like the picture, you JUST LIKE. The rest of the speculation and the truth will not be learned by anyone except the person who did it.
Here some mad women, proving their opinion and not going to listen to someone else's, say that in any case, this action is behind some kind of catch. Of course, if a person likes something in the "depths of the page", then the following logic works (quite reasonable): like - it means you liked it - * association with that girl * - it means you remembered - it means you thought about her - it means he is not indifferent to her - it means wants to return / start a relationship. And then the girl gives out to her beloved only the final thought, in which he is ultra-goat and in general. Naturally, the man does not like such a reaction, moreover, unexplained by the girl. And then everyone goes into exaggerated reactions - for men this does not mean anything, for women it is almost a declaration of love. And if you think that this is the reason for the betrayal, then maybe it also lies in the fact that you always display him, at least about these "likes"? (The phrase is not addressed to the author of the question)
I would like to recommend the author of the question to observe the behavior of my young man. There is a saying "one swallow does not make spring" - that is, it is impossible to draw a general conclusion on one basis. Look at his behavior - if there are signs, then there are many of them (if he does not know how to hide "evidence" at all), or ... in general, everything secret will become apparent. And in this case, "like" can be nothing and even a very important phenomenon in providing attention.
They like them because they like photography, recording, video, audio and other content. No more, do you seriously think that likes are an indicator that a person likes? Don't do it this way, take things right, he just liked your photos, it doesn't mean that he feels something for you.
according to the logic of some people, like on a social network is almost a foreplay) like is just like. and in 90% it has no "secret meaning" and "logic"
He just liked the pictures. For many people, pressing the heart button is nothing more than a way to show their gratitude for the benefit or aesthetic pleasure of the content. No subtext. It's simple.
