2. He is withdrawn most of the time.

When you find your man withdrawn and silent from you, for the most part, it might be because he is thinking about his past relationship, and how it ended. He can’t really understand why his past relationship was so unfair.

A close examination of the past gets him to think about nothing. When he has thought about everything, and he can’t get a reason for the breakup, he embarks on nothing. These two are reasons enough to give push a man to withdraw. If your man keeps on withdrawing from your emotions, then it’s maybe because he still hasn’t moved on from the pain of his past relationship.

3. He makes negative and bitter comments about love.

If you find him talking negatively and bitterly about love, and anything even remotely related to it, then take it as a sign that he is still in pain. He carries a lot of resentment, hurt, and anger in himself because of his past breakup, and that is why he talks badly about love.

Do you really want to be with someone who is still stuck in his past, hasn’t moved on from it even a little bit, and considers love to be one of the worst things ever? Do you really want to be with someone like that?

4. He never seems to trust you.

One of the major signs that the man you are dating is carrying a broken heart, is when he exhibits trust issues. No matter what you do to convince him that he is the only one for you, he will always distrust you and find ways to justify his stance. He is not controlling, but he will always doubt what you are saying and what you are doing.

It will only be after a lot of mollycoddling and convincing will he decide to trust you, and that too only a little bit. He sometimes feels bad for not being able to trust you, and that is another sign of his broken heart.
