You were in a committed relationship and something happened that ended it. You were hurt and you grieved, but now, you’re faced with a new predicament. At some point or other, every woman has been there and wondered: Should I take my ex back?
The fact of the matter is, every situation is different and there is no right or wrong answer here
For some people, when a relationship has ended then it’s over and there’s no going back. For others, they go back to their former partner multiple times in attempts to try to work things out. It really should depend on the situation.
In most cases, a relationship ends for a particular reason
That reason might be infidelity, different life paths, or a genuine lack of romantic feelings on one partner’s side. Sometimes, however, the reasons that the relationship ended might be a little blurry. That’s when it might be plausible to revisit the relationship.
While you can’t always expect people to change themselves, occasionally their situation or their approach can change.
For example, if you broke up due to lack of communication and the other partner realizes this and tries to better their communication skills then it’s possible that the relationship might work out after all.
Likewise, if you broke up due to distance and then you or your partner relocates then you might want to give the relationship another try, especially if the distance was the main factor in disrupting your partnership.
It’s always good to be hesitant to take back an ex who cheated on you, although just because they cheated on you once doesn’t mean that they will necessarily do it again. Having realistic expectations is important, though, and if you don’t trust your partner then your relationship is headed for trouble right from the beginning.
Most couples break up for a specific reason
Bear that reason in mind if you are considering getting back together. For the most part, you can’t count on that reason automatically resolving itself if you start the relationship up again. It will take some work.
If you do have real feelings for your ex and you’re willing to invest some time and effort into a new relationship with them then there’s always a good chance that it can work out for you. Just be willing to accept the fact that it might not take up where it left off.
