Have you been thinking about your ex-partner lately and have started to wish the two of you were back together? Are you constantly bringing them up to your friends and reminiscing about the nice things they’ve done for you? After you’ve had some time to think about the break up, it’s time to think about whether you two should get back together. If you’re considering taking them back, here are five things to consider before you decide if that’s what you really want to do.
1. Have you given them a chance to grow?
I dated my ex-partner for six years on and off, but in the end he had the same attitude with very little room for growth. If you’ve been with your significant other for three years and they still haven’t seemed to mature or sieze the necessary opportunities for personal growth, it’s not a good idea to give them another chance. If you’re not together because they were too or weren’t affectionate enough, it might be a sign that you two have very different characteristics that don’t compliment one another. It’s important to remember the things that you did communicate with your ex, those are the ones that you’ll want to evaluate in order to get a clearer idea as to whether or not it will work this time around. Sometimes, you have to put a time limit on how long they have to grow so you won’t have to wait a long time.
