You Can’t Change the past

You Can’t Change the past Top of the list of reasons never to get back with your ex is that you can’t change the past, no matter how much both of you are willing to try at the beginning. When the relationship starts to break down the second time around, you won’t be able to deal with it in a fresh way because your mind will take you start back to the heart-breaking events of the first time around. It will be a never-ending cycle.


You’ll Forget All the Negatives

You’ll Forget All the Negatives When considering getting back together with an ex, the only things that you think about are all of the good times that you had together during the relationship, when what you should be reminding yourself of are the reasons that you broke up in the first place. A great way to look at it is that there is a reason why the windscreen is larger than the rear view mirror; you are supposed to look forward more than you look back, so move on!


You Will Be Less Forgiving

You Will Be Less Forgiving In a do-over relationship, there is much less wiggle room for both of you in terms of making mistakes and in terms of the small things that annoy you about the other person. Because you have been through it all before, these small little annoyances will not be tolerated for the same amount of time as they were before, and this will lead to a quicker loss of patience with your partner and with the relationship as a whole.


Too Big a Comfort Zone Isn’t Healthy

Too Big a Comfort Zone Isn’t Healthy A new relationship always needs a few boundaries to start off with, so the fact that you are coming in to this ‘old new’ relationship means that all bets are off and the comfort zones you fell in to before will be the ones still present. The negative thing about this is that the comfort zone you were in before obviously didn’t work, otherwise you wouldn’t have broken up in the first place!


Don’t Hold up Your Life Story

Don’t Hold up Your Life Story All of your relationships weave together to write the story of your romantic life, so if you have already been through a chapter that wasn’t so enjoyable, why would you want to go through it again? You wouldn’t re-read a bad chapter of a book, so don’t do it with your love life. You need to make room for the next chapter to begin!


Let the Wound Heal

Let the Wound Heal When it comes to revisiting an old failed relationship, you need to remember this key phrase; a wound can never heal if you keep picking at it! It might be tempting to revert to something that you already know, but you really need to let that wound heal and move on to bigger and better things.


You Deserve Better

You Deserve Better Though it might feel like the safe option to get back with an ex, you need to start treating yourself better and come to the realization that you deserve more than a sloppy seconds attempt at something that hurt you the first time around. Go out and find the person that deserves to be with you, do not settle for something less!

I got back together with my ex girlfriend once. She then broke up with me six days later. I found out the other day that she didn't mean it when she asked me back out and that she was using me.

Very helpful post! Love it!

This post helped me realize that its not s good idea to get back with my ex.

I do not agree with this. My ex and I are back together and we are happier than we have ever been. It's been almost 3 years since we dated but the time apart made our love inseparable.

Broke up once for some months 2 years ago. Been togerher soon 4 years now

@Neecey, no need to apologize at all! I think it's great! Thanks for getting back to me and letting me know my guess was right :)

There's a reason why they're you're ex,

Most times it's best to accept the split was for a reason and move on.
