Cupid’s Advice:

Regardless what others may say, getting back with an ex is not always a bad idea. Sometimes time apart is what’s needed to grow stronger. Cupid weighs in:

1. It’s all on the table: If you’re thinking about getting back together with an ex, the most important thing you must do is talk with each other. If there is any unfinished business or unresolved resentment, you must lay it all on the line. Once all the feelings are accounted for, be sure to set clear guidelines before jumping back in.

2. You’ve forgiven: Forgiveness isn’t easy, but it is possible! Contrary to popular belief, forgiveness does not weaken your character: it shows you have the strength to accept the past, look beyond the mistakes, and move on. If you have come to terms with an ex who may have hurt you, but genuinely want to give them another chance, that shows a maturity toward both parties involved.

3. You’re both in better headspaces: Break-ups usually happen because two people are unable to be on the same page. The time spent as a single person is pivotal in personal development. If you and your ex have given each other enough time and space apart, allowing each other to grow, then getting back together might be worth a shot. Though you already know each other, and the relationship is by no means “new,” it is exciting to begin a new chapter and get to know each other’s newfound headspaces.
