Cupid’s Advice:

There will usually come a time after a breakup when you’ll want to get back together with your ex. You have to handle this situation carefully because you may get back into the relationship for the wrong reasons. Make sure your head it clear when you reconsider the two of you. Cupid has some more advice:

1. Soul mate: Many believe that there is a person out there in this enormous universe which is yours. Your other half, the person who keeps you sane, keeps you happy, and keeps you in love. If you know that your ex is your soul mate, make sure of it. Don’t hop back into the relationship because you’re lonely or jealous. If you know you two should be together, do something about it.

2. Responsibility: There are certain responsibilities attached to relationships. Especially if children are put into the equation. If your ex is suffering, both physically and financially. There comes a time where it may be your responsibility to rekindle the relationship for your partner’s sake. Only you know what these situations are, and only you can determine if it is worth the risk.

3. Change: Did you and your mate end things because they weren’t what you thought they were? Have they now changed and you are considering getting back together? This is common throughout breakups everywhere. It is possible for a person to change. You may not want to believe it, however it is true. If your ex really has changed, rekindling is a superb idea.
