Getting back with your ex is not a decision to be taken lightly. Even if you are amicable and ended things on good terms, an ex is usually an ex for a reason. If you’re considering going back to them, be sure to ask yourself these questions.
What Will Be Different?
It’s easy to look past the things that were wrong in your relationship, and pine for the good times and memories. But what about the negatives? There were reasons strong enough for you to end things previously, so what has changed? What would be different if you were to give things another go? You need to be sure that any issues you had are addressed and that you are both going to make a conscious effort for these not to become a problem in your relationship again.
Is It For The Right Reasons?
Sometimes, you can selfishly want to be with someone for no other reason than you don’t want anyone else to have them, or you’re not ready to let go. Think about the reasons you’re debating getting back with your ex, and if they are not for the sake of being in love with them, then it’s not wise to go ahead with your decision.
Can We Make It Work?
Giving a relationship a second go isn’t easy; it will take hard work, commitment, and compromises. You need to make sure you and your ex are both on the same page about how you will attempt to make the relationship work, and if you can come to an agreement and both feel it’s the right thing to do, then you should both try to work towards a future together.
