Question - (1 August 2016) 6 Answers - (Newest, 3 August 2016)
A female United Kingdom age 36-40, anonymous writes:

I split up with my boyfriend 6 months ago after a rocky relationship. Within a couple of weeks he was in a new relationship. We've not stayed in touch and we're not linked via any kind of social media.

My ex has started looking at my LinkedIn account in the last two weeks. He hasn't been looking previously. I've also recently just changed jobs and although my LinkedIn doesn't show my new job yet, it still says my old one.

Why is he looking? He's doing it every few days...

Honeypie agony auntIf he is aware that YOU can see him checking your profile out, he probably want YOU to think of him.

Seems like you are WAY better off without him.

Chin up and don't let it phase you that he is looking at your profile.

This is verified as being by the original poster of the question

Thank you- I'm glad you said that. He's looking at my profile a couple of times a day. When he left our relationship I was heartbroken and in the weeks that followed he was incredibly unkind and rubbed my face in his new relationship. I have rebuilt my life and am happy now. I'm just not sure what he thinks he will achieve now....!

Sageoldguy1465 agony auntHe's looking at you because the delightful lady he met .. and for whom he dumped you.... is probably not working out as he expected......

We guys do this all the time. And... unfortunately.. many time the lady involved (you!) allow him to reconstitute himself in your life. It's a no-win situation for you.

My advice? Ignore him... and stay away from him....

Good luck...

I know how you feel, deep down you are hoping, he is checking up on you, i do know too that you want people to think it doesn't matter, you are over him, hey its ok, its your heart an feelings, you gave him a part of you, its been seven months for me, she ghost me, i tell people am over her, but my heart isn't, what hurts the most is it never hurts them, the pain is real physical pain, an they never felt that way,why do we have to feel this way, an they act like it doesn't mean nothing to them, but karma a bitch, but whats really bad, is we never get to see them in the same pain

DarrellG agony auntI agree with Honeypie, with the proviso that what he does is irrelevant to your life...*unless* have unresolved issues here which is why you are wondering this in the first place.....

Honeypie agony auntWhy knows?


Maybe things are not as great with the new girl and he is being nostalgic.

Maybe someone brought you up in conversation and he felt like seeing if you are still OK without actually contacting you - pointless really.

Lastly... My guess is he doesn't KNOW that you can see he checked your LinkedIn....

I wouldn't spend any more time pondering. It's pointless really. What he does is irrelevant for YOUR life.
