A lot of times relationships break up in the middle of a huge fight. Although it may have seemed what both of you wanted to do at the time, after things cool down, things may look a lot different. Now, you’re sorry that you sent your ex on his or her way. You want your ex back.
This is a hard lesson but mistakes happen. The best way to fix these mistakes isn’t always breaking up. There’s some damage that occurs when a relationship ends, but it can be saved if both parties want it. It’s just a matter of figuring out where to start.
If the relationship you had previously was totally amazing, but just hit a big obstacle, you can still have the relationship again. The first big thing you’ll need to do is figure out a way around that obstacle. There are also things you need to think about before beginning the process of getting your ex back.
First, think seriously about the reasons for the break up. These can be one or many, but there’s usually a major cause that started the whole break up. Examine this underlying problem neutrally so that you can get an honest and clear view of the relationship. Once you’ve identified the reasons, decide whether they can be put to the side and dealt with so it’s not a problem anymore.
Next, you need to start taking action. You should always keep at least one method of communication in operation with your ex. This can be email, phone, text messages or even meeting them occasionally. Whatever the channel of communication you kept open, you need to be as natural as possible when using it.
Try organizing an outing with a group of friends you have in common. Be as natural as possible when around your ex so that he or she can see how the relationship can happen again. Gauge what their reaction is to you. Prior to this, don’t bad mouth your ex because you can bet that it will get back to him or her.
Invite your ex to meet you at one of your favorite hangouts so you can have an open and honest talk about whether or not to get back together. Focus on what you liked about the relationship and keep things positive. Be honest about how you feel and see if your ex wants the same things.
If you’re serious about getting back together, the problems that caused the break up need to be ironed out. Both of you can work at fixing things so that the reconciliation can be even smoother.
Relationships should be half and half. If it was your fault that the break up happened, you need to apologize. Make every effort possible to change whatever you did. If your ex was the one that caused it, you should expect a sincere apology. If you get that, forgive and forget if you want your ex back.
Is your ex worth that extra work to make the relationship better? You have to make that choice. Just don’t wait too long before your ex will find someone else.
