Cupid’s Advice:

Relationship don’t always work out, sometimes it’s for the best and other times things get in the way. Being alone can be hard and make you wish you were in a relationship, but it’s not always easy finding someone right for you. What if you think you already met the person you want to be with, but it didn’t work out the first time? Cupid has advice on things to consider before reuniting with your ex:

1. It’s more than just loneliness: Do you really miss your ex, or are you just scared of being alone? If the only reason you want to reunite is because your lonely, that is not a good enough reason to get back together and build a chance at a long-lasting relationship. Don’t make the mistake of getting back together with someone for the wrong reasons, it will only hurt your relationship with that person, especially if the two of you are still friends or close.

2. There’s a bright future: You need to ask yourself if you see a future with your old flame. Falling in love all over again is nice, deciding you just one last hook up is not, unless it is what you both want. Remember, no matter what you decide there’s a chance one or both of you will get hurt. If there is potential for you and your ex to build a long and happy future together, by all means dive in, but make sure it’s clear on both sides and that you’re on the same page.

3. It’s not just a rebound: If you just got out of a relationship and are feeling sad about it, you might need more time to heal before jumping back into a relationship with someone, especially if it’s with your ex. Diving right into another relationship after a break up is not always healthy, however if the reason you broke up is because you still have a strong connection with your ex lover, it could be good to give it another shot. Ask yourself is it more than just your ex being a good friend to you, by giving you a shoulder to cry on. Don’t rekindle something that’s not  all the way there.
