Perhaps you’re considering the odds of a reconciliation?

If so, this guide should prove to be helpful. It explains the factors involved with how long it takes a guy to miss you after a break-up.

With these factors embedded in your mind, it becomes a lot easier to calculate whether your ex has moved on, or if they are longing for you to get back in touch with them.  

I have to mention this before we start though…

Recently, I discovered an online tool which provides the most effective method of checking how your ex is feeling after a break-up. 

This discreet communications tracker is able to generate a detailed report of their most recent online and smartphone activity. 

You can discover:

  • who they have been calling and texting;
  • what apps they’ve downloaded;
  • what contact details they have registered;
  • what online services they are using;
  • who are they communicating with the most;
  • a hell of a lot more.

This tool is fast, comprehensive and safe to use. It only needs a few of your ex’s basic details to begin tracking them. Plus, there’s no way of them finding out what’s going on. 

Instead of speculating what’s been going on since the break-up, you can find out! In most cases, some obvious signs will pop up in this detailed communications report. 

With that said, here are some more factors that you can consider when trying to work out if they have moved on.
