There's always a chance of getting hurt again too, but at least you'll have the added benefit of going into the second round with your eyes wide open.__Have you ever dated an ex? How long should you wait before revisiting a romance?Do you think it's a chance to start anew on different terms or is it just an opportunity for you to get hurt again?Deciding to take such an unconventional step needs to be done carefully since there are many ramifications for children and friends.You wouldn't want to get children's hopes up, and your choice can confuse friends who have accepted your accounts of the divorce that typically frame the ex-spouse in a less-then-positive light. Just as you deserve to heal and move on, so does your ex. Avoid Being Each Other’s Crutch You loved, you lost, you’re now in mourning. If your ex calls, emails, texts, or stops by seeking comfort for his broken heart? Instead, kindly but firmly let him know that you are no longer his go-to support system.Rather than become a shut-in out of fear of your ex encounter, embrace the possibility and plan for it. In fact, your ex encounter will probably be a lot less dramatic than this scenario. In bumping into your ex, you may be reminded of what you loved about him or her. Instead, summon that inner strength, smile politely, and extricate yourself from the situation as soon as is possible without being rude. Selector .selector_input_interaction .selector_input.

You can get a beer again without breaking down into tears about your poor broken heart. Regardless of the reasons of why you broke up, running straight back into the relationship without examining it is just an opportunity to replay the exact same failure a second time, only this time you have the added bonus of seeing it coming and realizing that there’s hard to resist the tendency to fall back into the old dynamics of the relationship, and those dynamics are what ultimately lead to the two of you breaking up in the first place and your house being set on fire in a fit of jealous rage.
Before you make that offer to take your ex out for coffee and talk about the relationship, you need to stop and take a very long and hard look at what you’re getting back into… The first thing you need to ask yourself is: why did the relationship end at all?
