Cupid’s Advice:

Breaking up is hard. People break up for many reasons, maybe you drifted apart, or the timing wasn’t right, or you realized you just didn’t click “that way”. The only thing harder than learning to let someone go is figuring out if you want to give them a second chance. Cupid has some advice on some things you should consider before rekindling your flame with an ex:

1. Figure out why you broke up in the first place: Really think about the reasons you broke up the first time around.  No matter what the reason was behind your breakup ask yourself if you can either forgive or live with them. If you decide you do want a second chance at a relationship there’s no guarantee the things that happened before, won’t happen again.

2. Why do you want to get back together: Make sure the reasons why you want to reunite are your own. If the reason you want to get back together is only because your ex lover is pressuring you, or you feel bad, or if you’re considering it because of your family, the relationship will most like be doomed to fail again. No matter how noble your intentions are don’t get back in relationship with someone for the wrong reasons only do it if it is truly what you want.
