This celebrity news is definitely the talk of Hollywood at the moment. What are some things to be careful about if you’re getting back together with an ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

No matter what people say, getting back with an ex isn’t always a bad idea. Like Gomez says – the heart wants what it wants, right? However, it is important to be cautious when you jump back into a relationship with someone. Cupid has the scoop:

1. Think about their motives: While this might be unsettling, you need to consider your ex’s feelings. Are they genuinely wanting to give it another go, or are they just using you to fill a void? You don’t want to get burned again, so be careful and really think this through before you jump back in.

2. Think about your feelings: Similarly, it’s important to be careful that you’re really interested in giving it another shot. If you just want to get back with them because you don’t want to go to your bestie’s wedding by yourself or are lonely in general, you should reconsider your priorities. Don’t invest your time into your ex if you aren’t going back into the relationship with the right intentions.

3. Beware of old habits: As they say, old habits die hard. While you might be thinking that your ex has completely changed for the better, it’s important to be realistic. There’s still potential for the habits that previously affected your relationship to creep back into the picture, so don’t put your ex on a pedestal quite yet.
