Ending your relationship with an ex can be a very difficult and messy task which is why most people don’t really get along with their ex. But, there have been some occasions where getting along with your ex isn’t really the worst idea in the world. We all know that on again/off again couples can be frustrating. However, for some couples a little bit of time apart and away from each other can be what’s needed to realize you are meant to be collective. Read over these 4 little signs to see if getting back with your ex is something that you should consider.
1. It Wasn’t A Messy Breakup – If your breakup wasn’t really messy and horrible then it could be a signal that you two could really make it work. Perhaps you just grew away from each other or your boyfriend/girlfriend left for college. These situations may cause a couple to end their relationship – but there is certainly still potential there later!
2. You Both Want Each Other Back – If one person is begging the other to get back with them then it’s not a good sign. For an ex-boyfriend and girlfriend to rekindle their relationship it’s going to require both sides wanting to make it happen. If the two of you have discussed getting back together and agree it’s something you’re both willing to put the effort into – there is definitely still potential to make it work with your ex!
3. A Lot Of Time Has Passed – We all change as we grow older and believe it or not, our exes do as well. If you just recently broke up with your ex then thinking about getting back together with them a week or month later might not be the best idea. You should really give it at least a couple of months to see how you feel after some real time apart. Think about it this way – if you’ve spent six months apart from each other and you two still feel you want to give your relationship another try – then it could certainly be worth a try!
4. You Have Both Dated Different People – After a relationship it’s a good idea to try dating again. Even if it’s just a few occasional dinner dates, this will at least get you back into the world of meeting new people and being sociable. It will also give you a better idea on what you had versus what’s now available to you. After being single for a period of time and going on a few dates you may realize the relationship you had before wasn’t so bad.
