11 remarkable signs that the twin flame runner is becoming the chaser

Are you wondering whether the runner in your twin flame relationship might be becoming the chaser?

There are 11 signs to look out for when this happens.

11 signs the runner is becoming the chaser

Before I dive into the actual signs of a twin flame runner becoming a chaser, I want to mention that half of these signs will be concerning the runner, and half of them the chaser. 

Why, you may ask?

Well, the thing is, twin flame runner-chaser dynamics don’t just happen out of nowhere.

Usually, both have something to do with the sudden shift in dynamics.

You see, the runner has their reasons to suddenly feel like chasing their twin flame, but often, simultaneously, the chaser is slipping into runner dynamics.

Before it gets too confusing, let’s look at the signs:

1) The runner indulges in bad habits

The first sign that a runner is slowly slipping into becoming the chaser is when they start indulging in bad habits.

You see, they are beginning to realize that being without their twin flame is extremely painful and goes against their nature.

What do they do?

Well, they aren’t in a place quite yet where they admit to the fact that running is not the answer, so instead, they try to distract themselves any way they can. 

Oftentimes, this takes the shape of very unhealthy habits, such as:

  • Smoking
  • Drinking
  • Doing drugs
  • Overeating
  • Binge-watching TV
  • Going out all the time
  • Gambling

And similar behaviors.

The thing is, in the end, none of that will help you to feel any better, believe me.

However, it is the first sign that the runner knows they aren’t where they need to be, and although these bad habits can make their path even harder, they are a necessary evil.

2) The runner returns to an ex

Has your twin flame runner recently gotten back together with an old ex?

I know that this is probably a really painful experience for you, but try not to worry too much about this.

You see, similar to slipping into bad habits, returning to an ex is an equally desperate attempt to find a distraction from the constant pain that being away from the twin flame brings.

As the chaser, this is not an easy phase of twin flame separation.

Feelings such as:

  • Abandonment
  • Jealousy
  • Anger
  • Helplessness
  • Desperation

Can come up, and it’s totally natural.

To help with that, you can try to reach out to friends, family, or a therapist.

However, try to remember that your twin is most probably not very happy with their ex, and sooner rather than later they will realize that what they are looking for can’t be found there.

At this stage, the runner is often oblivious to the fact that their discomfort is stemming from being separated from their twin, but they will notice soon enough.

Attempts at distraction such as getting together with the ex are the first sign that they are about to switch and become chasers.

3) A gifted advisor confirms it

The signs above and below will give you a good idea if the runner has indeed become the chaser.

But a surefire way to know for sure is to speak with a gifted advisor.

They can answer questions about why the tables have turned.

The problem is finding someone you can trust. 

That’s why I recommend Psychic Source. When I signed up for a reading, they provided me with unique insights into different aspects of my life.

Having tried several online advisors, I think they’re the most caring, compassionate and helpful network of gifted advisors out there.

Not only will a genuine advisor explain the runner-chaser dynamics, but they can reveal the possible outcomes too.

4) The runner begins to think about their twin a lot

As a chaser, this sign will be hard to identify as you can’t look into your twin flame’s head, but another sign of the runner becoming the chaser is when they think about their twin flame a lot.

Usually, this will come after the first indicators such as bad habits or returning to an ex.

You see, at first, they had an uncomfortable feeling and tried to distract themselves.

They might not have even thought about the fact that you could be the reason they felt so empty.

Now, all of a sudden you keep occupying their thoughts.

They think about all your quirks and traits that they love so much. They remember the beautiful memories the two of you have shared and they begin to miss you.

Slowly but surely the runner will realize that they want the chaser in their life, but unfortunately it’s not always that easy.

Turns out while they are slowly becoming a chaser, the chaser is going through the exact opposite transition.

But more about that later.

Let’s take a look at what this sudden shift does to the runner, first:

5) The runner feels lonely and abandoned

When the twin flame chaser starts to go through their own transformation, the runner all of a sudden feels lonely and abandoned. 

Even though they were the ones leaving at first, they now feel like they got the shorter end of the stick.

This is a huge sign that they are becoming the chaser, because, you see, while they are a runner, they don’t really care about what their twin flame is doing.

They might even ban them from their thoughts, trying to move on.

Once they feel the pain of loneliness and abandonment, chances are good that they are becoming a chaser.

Some things that can give this away are:

  • Sudden phone calls
  • Random text messages
  • Cryptic posts on social media hinting at you

They want their twin flame back, but now their twin is suddenly not available.

Instead of loneliness and abandonment, they often show a shift in mindset in a different way:

6) The runner feels angry or resentful

A huge indicator of the runner changing into a chaser is when they begin to feel angry or resentful towards their twin flame. 

After all, how dare they move on now that the runner has finally made up their mind and wants to be with them???

I know, it doesn’t sound very logical but in the brain of a runner, they didn’t do anything wrong, and a part of them expected the chaser to wait for them.

Now: the chaser has gone through their own transformation, so all of a sudden, the roles are reversed.

Strong emotions such as anger and resentment are big signals of the runner not being a runner anymore, after all.

As the chaser, you might notice them being passive-aggressive when you have contact, or you will even receive angry messages.

These things will tell you that the runner is not indifferent to you anymore, and is in fact on the very opposite end of this dynamic now.

When I was going through my own struggle with my twin flame I reached out to Psychic Source.

Like I said earlier, the gifted spiritual advisor there really helped me see things in a whole new way. 

Analyzing the runner-chaser dynamics isn’t fun, but it didn’t faze the psychic I spoke to at all. 

They can help you in text chat, a call or a video call and it costs much less than you might think.

7) The chaser is beginning to move on

As the chaser, a big sign that the scales are about to shift is when you start to move on.

Suddenly, your thoughts are not as occupied with the runner anymore, and you start to feel like it is silly to keep chasing someone who doesn’t want to be with you.

What you might not know is that instead of both of you moving on, your behavior is actually triggering the runner to start chasing YOU!

You can make of that whatever you want. Some twin flames enjoy this shift in dynamics, while others are glad to finally be on the same page and get back together.

Turns out the next events depend greatly on whether or not you have both undergone the necessary self-development to reunite. 

8) The chaser starts dating other people

Tying onto what we just talked about, the chaser might also start dating other people once they realize they can’t keep chasing their twin flame forever.

For the running twin flame, seeing the chaser with someone new can be a groundbreaking experience.

All of a sudden, they realize that they are actually drifting apart and that if they don’t start chasing, the relationship might be lost for good.

At this point, I think it’s important to mention that as the chaser, you shouldn’t act as if you’re seeing others in order to provoke this reaction in the running twin flame.

You see, a huge part of the twin flame connection is on an energetic level, and, believe it or not, your twin flame will know if you are not genuinely seeing others.

I can’t explain how they know, but they just do.

That’s why when you are seriously seeing someone new, they feel in their heart that the situation is grave.

If you’re the chaser, don’t pressure yourself to see someone else if you don’t feel like the time is right.

Trust in divine timing and everything will work out.

9) The chaser becomes afraid

Why does a twin flame become a runner in the first place?

Usually, it has something to do with fear and denial.

Having a twin flame is an incredibly powerful connection and it can be scary sometimes.

Questions such as:

  • If we’re really twin flames, what does that mean?
  • Can we even survive together in this reality?
  • How do we continue our lives?
  • Am I good enough to have such a divine union with someone?
  • Am I worthy?
  • Will they start running if I don’t?
  • Do I have what it takes?

All of these questions have something in common: A deep sense of insecurity and lack of self-worth.

You see, runners don’t run from the twin flame relationship because you’re not good enough.

They run because they are scared that they might not be. 

Once the chaser starts to have those same doubts, becoming afraid of the connection, chances are the dynamics will soon shift 180 degrees.

10) The chaser stops chasing

When the chaser stops chasing, the runner is confused and taken aback.

Why would they suddenly stop chasing me?

This often drives the runner to subconsciously turn into the chaser.

There are many reasons a chaser might stop what they are doing.

Some of them may be:

  • Thinking there is no point to it all
  • Trying to move on
  • Using the no-contact rule 
  • Meeting someone else
  • Realizing they need time for self-development
  • Losing faith in the twin flame relationship

That last point is also the final sign that a twin flame runner is becoming the chaser:

11) The chaser loses faith

You see, the runner-chaser dynamic only works as long as the chaser holds on to that flicker of hope that tells them there will be a future with their twin.

Once that faith is gone, the relationship would break apart.

Unless… it is a true twin flame relationship.

The truth is, twin flame relationships are meant to be, so there is no “breaking apart for good”.

So, what does that mean for the runner?

Because they are destined to be together, once the chaser loses faith, the runner has to take their place in the dynamic.

All of a sudden, roles are reversed.

The good news?

Seeing the runner suddenly have a change of heart can actually restore the chaser’s faith very quickly, leading to a beautiful twin flame reunion!

The twin flame runner is becoming a chaser, what next?

Due to the fact that you’re reading this article, you might be in a similar situation at the moment.

Well, the good news is that no matter if you are the runner or the chaser, the advice to follow is the same:

Do what feels right.

You see, in a true twin flame relationship, you are destined to be together, so following your heart will ultimately guide you back towards each other.

And if you’re not meant to be together, following your heart will help you heal and find the person who is meant for you.

As the chaser, you probably feel discouraged and frustrated by the constant waiting and disappointment.

As long as you stay strong, follow your heart, and take care of yourself, things will be okay.

The same goes for the runner. You might be in a time of great confusion, but as long as you listen to your intuition and heart, you can’t stray from your path.

Both of you should make sure to focus on self-love a little extra, trying to limit unhealthy habits and self-sabotage as much as possible.

In the end, no matter what your twin flame does or doesn’t do, the one person you will always be with is yourself.

And the best part?

You can 100% decide how you treat yourself and how you nurture this important relationship.

Make sure to remember that you are worthy of being loved and respected.

Can a gifted advisor help you too?

If you want specific advice on your situation, it can be very helpful to speak to someone with special intuition.

I know this from personal experience…

A few months ago, I reached out to Psychic Source when I was going through a tough patch in my relationship. After being lost in my thoughts for so long, they gave me a unique insight into what my future holds, and the confidence to make the right decisions when it comes to love.

If you haven’t heard of Psychic Source before, it’s a site where gifted advisors help people through complicated and difficult life situations.

In just a few minutes you can connect with a highly intuitive psychic and get tailor-made advice for your situation.

I was blown away by how kind, empathetic, and genuinely helpful my psychic was.
