If You Realy Want To Go Back There, Make Sure You Follow These Rules For Dating Your Ex
Not all relationships work out; yes there may be plenty of love there, but sometimes it is just not enough. But times do change, people grow up and their priorities shift, which allows you to consider restarting a relationship with your ex. However, dating someone for the second time round, you cant expect things to be just the same as before and to pick up where you have left off.
You are both different people, the first break-up has probabably left a lasting impression on you and your partner. So to make the relationship last this time around, there are some rules that you should stick to when dating your ex.
- The Past Should Stay There – At some point you probably are going to get frustrated once again with your partner, but the absolute worst thing you can do is bring up the past. Bringing up negative things from the past is not the way to move towardss a positive future.
- You’re Best Off Not Knowing – If your break from your ex has been a substantial one, then there is a chance that during that time, they have had romantic inolvement with others. Knowing all the gritty details may end up feeling like a betrayal, but you can’t think that way, you have to treat this as a new relationship and wipe the slate clean.
- Don’t Forget Everything – There is a reason the relationship didn’t work out the first time around, so it is important to remember the mistakes you made, so you don’t repeat them. For example, if you were overly jealous, it’s time to work on your trust issues, so you can build a stronger relationship this time around.
- What’s The Rush – If you just jump back into things where you left them, you may find yourself in the same situation that led to the break up in the first place. Take your time and try to understand the failings of your first try at a relationship and work through them so they don’t become an issue again.
Be careful, but don’t let your caution get the better of you – if there was anything worth salvaging from your first go around, then there is certainly something worth working on. But, don’t just get back with your ex because it’s easy or because you don’t think you will be able to find anyone else, it will be doomed for failure.
