...excluding the obvious signs like your ex showing up at your doorstep (which may require a bit of time).
One of the easiest ways to determine if no contact is working is to assess how you feel. It may sound counterintuitive since we're not focusing on the state of your ex, but this is a reliable measure. Pay attention to your own well-being. If you find that with each passing day, you feel better, even though some days may be particularly tough (I understand this personally), and if you notice a gradual reduction in anxiety and less preoccupation with thoughts of your ex
, then your no contact strategy is indeed working. It's important to recognize that the often-overlooked goal of no contact is to regain your strength and confidence. The recovery of the relationship itself is merely a side effect.
However, I can relate to your desire to assess if no contact is working based on your ex's behavior. It's natural to wonder. In that case, keep an eye out for signs such as messages, calls, unexpected encounters, or even subtle hints on their social media (although I advise against actively monitoring their social media as it can impede your recovery process). If you receive any form of provocation from their side, such as inquiries from their friends or relatives about you, it could be an indication that your ex is experiencing the impact of no contact.
Nevertheless, do not be disheartened if your ex remains silent during the no contact period. It could be due to insufficient time having passed since the breakup or other factors that influence the duration of the no contact period, such as their involvement in a rebound relationship. Trust the process, and remember that healing takes time.
