Reality TV star Kristin Cavallari and NFL player Jay Cutler are engaged for a second time after their split in July.  People reported that the starlet was gushing over her fiancé and showing off her ring (the same bling he presented her with for their first engagement) during dinner Friday evening at Union Restaurant & Lounge in Las Vegas where they dined with friends and business colleagues.

Is it OK to get back together with an ex?

Cupid’s advice:

Go ahead and give him a second chance.  Love is a powerful feeling to forget, and if you think you’re meant to be together, then don’t give up.  Cupid has some tips to make sure you’re ready before you take a second shot at love:

1.  Mutual decision:  After breaking off an engagement, your feelings might be crushed.  Make sure you and your partner are both over past negativity and ready to move on as a stronger couple.

2. Confidence:  Both you and your partner are going to have to be incredibly confident in your love and trust for one another for this to work the second time around.

3. Change:  There’s a reason you broke up the first time, so make sure the problem has been resolved.  You don’t want to throw yourself back into the same problematic situation.
