Are You Feeling Lonely?

One of the first questions you should ask yourself before you date your ex is if you are feeling lonely or if you really miss your ex. You should want to get back together with them because you still love them and because you want to be with them and not because you feel lonely or because you haven’t found someone else to date.


Why do You Want to Date Your Ex?

This is another very important question you should ask yourself before you date your ex. Figure out the reasons you want to do this and make sure that you don’t mistake lust for love. Make sure that the reasons for wanting them back are genuine and that this is really what you want to do.


Why Did You Break up?

Before you decide to date your ex again, try to remember why you broke up with them. Is it something you did or did they do something wrong? Why did things between you not work out? Can you fix those issues? Will you two be able to overcome those obstacles?


Have You Both Resolved Your Differences?

Before making another mistake, make sure that you have both resolved your differences, that you are more mature and that you can act in a more responsible and loving way. Have you discovered what made you break up? Do you know what you can do to solve all your problems and repair your relationship?


Are You Starting Afresh?

If you decide to get back together with your ex, make sure that you are starting afresh and that you don’t bring any old baggage into your relationship. Try not to judge them on the old relationship and focus on having fun together and on improving your new relationship.

Famous Quotes

Happiness depends upon ourselves.


Do You Love Yourself Enough?

This is a very important question to ask yourself if you are thinking about getting back together with an ex. If he was abusive or treated you badly, why do you want to date him again? Do you love him or are you just feeling insecure? Is he manipulating you or this is really what you want?


Is It Really What You Want?

Is this really what you want to do? Have you given this enough consideration? Are you sure that you are not making a mistake and that this is what would make you and your ex happy? Are there any other reasons why you want to get back together? Think about all these questions before you make a decision so you’ll know that you’ve made the right one.

There are a lot of questions you should ask yourself if you want to get back together with you ex. I just mentioned a few but I’m sure that there are many more I could add to this list.

I have a question what if u never broke up just took a break?

How would I know if im merely feeling lonely or it is truly him that I miss?

An ex is an ex for a reason, never get back with an ex!

I need some advice ladies :/ tired of feeling down

Ladies, live comes and goes. If his really for u you won't be apart. It will be hard to deal with as ur ex been in ur life and memories etch. But time is a good healer inject in activities and have a goal. U need an ego boost u can't get that from someone who doesn't consider u as a catch.

well when we first broke up i would have got back together in a heartbeat. but as the weeks went on i started to see many of the glaring issues he had. commitment issues, intimacy issues, etc etc. i still care for him , but not in the same way. i wouldn't want to get back with him now as i want someone much more together. but only time gave me this perspective .... so i would say always give yourself at least a few months to think things over before getting back with an ex. thats just my view , and im very happy now with someone more together, fitter and very hot lol

I went back with an ex an awful 3 times and I find myself going back oh too much. He's cheated on me countless times as well with his ex and having sex with her. Ladies: respect yourselves and just don't do it. Find someone new. It saves you tons of heartbreak and misery. Plus you'll be glad you didn't make a stupid decision like I did. Just don't do it.

I am considering getting back together with my ex from four years ago. We've both stayed on really good terms with each other, stayed in contact over the years. We have both been in relationships after our own, had completely moved on, but our experiences with our other partners were absolutely awful. Then, out of nowhere last week I received a message from him, and over the weekend we stayed up until 3am talking (twice). We both think very highly of each other, but not because things didn't work out with our other relationships, just because of the type of people we are and the way we treat others. We always treated each other with the care and respect the other deserved, never felt the need to rush anything, we really enjoyed being with each other (not sexually; we're both waiting until marriage) and spending time with each other. The only thing "wrong" with our relationship years ago was the timing, nothing else. Part of me wants to give us another try, and I think he might too. We're not currently discussing such a topic, but if the opportunity presents itself and we both feel comfortable with it, we might give it another try.
