3 Have You Changed?

What about you? Have you changed yourself and you are now thinking that you are more compatible with who your ex really is? That could be one of the reasons and ways that you can reconnect and rekindle with your ex. However, I will say, never change yourself for a guy. You are perfect the way you are!

4 No Dinner Dates

When you are first starting out with a guy, it shouldn't be dinner that you go to. Start out with drinks and then progress into dinner if you think that it is going well. This can save you a really uncomfortable date and can actually save your time, in case you two have changed so much that it just isn't working.

5 Be Mature

When you are trying to rekindle something that was lost, you don't ever want to go about it in an immature way. Girls, you are better than that! You want to be really mature about it and come off as cool, collected and extremely confident! That is the only way to go about rekindling something real.

6 Remember Why You Broke up

If you broke up recently and you are reconsidering getting back into a relationship with him, remember why you broke up. Did he cheat on you? Was there something that you hated about him, was there something monumental which couldn't be changed? Remember, these things might not have changed now, so you don't want to automatically assume it will be a new relationship.

7 Set Yourself up for Success

I think that when you are really trying to rekindle something with an old flame, you've got to make sure that it is something that you both want. Who knows, maybe this is an old, old flame that you've been thinking about for years and years – and he has been doing the same. Think positive, don't set yourself up for failure by convincing yourself you won't be successful.

8 Timing

The timing of a rekindled romance is very important. It has to be right for both of you and who knows, maybe it wasn't the right time in the beginning and that's why you didn't get together – or why you didn't stay together. Remember, timing is everything, girls!
