I’m one of those people who rarely give second chances.

In my opinion, if it didn’t work the first time why bother trying a second?

Rule number three is similar to rule number one except it takes more effort.

You have to be able to wipe the slate clean before you can get back together with an ex.

Of course, giving him a clean slate doesn’t mean you have to go back into the relationship blindly. Whatever the reason, it’s important to remember why things didn’t work out the first time and work around those issues. Although it is hard for people to change their ways, it’s not exactly impossible for people to change their ways. Were you too closed-hearted and emotionally available? When you get back with an ex, one of the first things you’ll notice is that all of those old feelings come back.

In fact, rule number four is very simple: Be cautious with your ex (it’s very difficult for people to change their ways, so he might not be as perfect as he seems), but don’t completely mistrust him right away, either. One of the best things to remember when you’re getting back together with an ex is that it didn’t work out the first time. One of the most important things you can do for your new relationship with an old boyfriend is to remember your mistakes and NOT repeat them. I was recently kissed by an old flame with whom I thought I had become “just friends” and suddenly my pulse raced, my heart fluttered, and all those old feelings came rushing back into my head and my heart. But, before you jump into the sack on the first date, treat this relationship like you would any new relationship. The physical aspect and the intimacy should come naturally, but should also be done with caution.

Over a year after I ended one relationship, I found some photos on Facebook of my ex with a woman I didn't recognize. (Sure, she exclusive and hadn't spoken in six months! After doing some soul searching, I realized my reasons were different for each person.

"Maybe she's just a friend," I thought — until I saw comments from her friends like "he's a cutie! With the first ex, I still relied on him for emotional support the way I did when we were dating, and seeing him with someone else made me wonder if we could still have as close a relationship.

This article was co-authored by Trudi Griffin, LPC.Before you think it won’t work out this time, you need to seriously analyze why you originally broke up. I have not yet decided if I’ll give it another try (his intentions aren’t quite as monogamous as mine), but it did make me realize how easily I could fall for him. ” off the rooftop, step back from your old feelings and try to start new. Not only do you not want to start the “love” part of a new relationship with an old lover right away, but you also want to take everything else slow. If there’s one universal aspect to any relationship it’s that men and women love to share their problems with friends and family.In other words, if you had a bad break-up with this guy and your pretty sure your brother might kill him if he ever sees your ex again, you’d better tell the family you’re dating again before the two of you show up for dinner.Make sure when you get back with an ex that you’re really ready to be with that person again and not just lonely for love.Also, make sure the past doesn’t become the future. Just another hard working mom who loves her kid, loves to write, can’t cook, and has a thing for tentacles!
