This celebrity couple is giving love another chance! How do you know if you should get back together with an ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s often tempting to give your ex a second chance. After all, you feel comfortable together, know each other well, and know that you can make each other happy. If you, like this celebrity couple, are thinking about reconciling with a past love, consider this dating advice:

1. You want the same things: It’s not every day that you meet someone who you share passionate feelings, values, and longterm goals with. If you still can picture a life together — one that makes both of you happy — even after your break-up, you should sit down and discuss what went wrong and what you can change to make sure things go right this time.

2. Your ex is making an effort: If he’s willing to drive across the country so you two can talk or she’s willing to get rid of her cat that you hate, it may be worth reconsidering your relationship. Making each other a priority is the first step to happily ever after.

3. You agreed to a break-up too soon: In the heat of the moment, it’s easy to say good-bye — and think you really mean it. However, if a few weeks later, you can’t stop thinking about each other and feel like a big piece of your life is missing, it’s time to consider a reconciliation.
