Reconnecting With Your Ex
If you want to mend fences with your ex, make certain first that the two of you can get along. If you believe that the two of you are destined to be together, then it’s worth your while to attempt reconciliation. Getting your ex back is easier if you remember a few important points.
Give your relationship one more try before closing the door on it completely. Reassure your partner that you have faith in your relationship and are willing to commit to its success. Then, do the work your relationship needs lovingly.
If after an honest effort your relationship is still not working, then consider some time apart from your ex for awhile. Suffocating your partner in a broken relationship will hurt more than it helps. How long a time apart the two of you may need depends on many things. The two of you may need a few weeks or a few months of time apart before attempting to come back together again.
During your time apart, refrain from dating other people. Focus on family, work, personal goals and other things that are important to you. Spend time with friends doing fun things. Distractions are important during this time to calm your anxiety over what your ex may be doing while the two of you are apart. If you find you have nothing to do now that your relationship is paused, then this could be an indication that you made your relationship the center of your life. Few people like to feel that but for the presence their mate would have nothing to do. Now is the time to discover what your life is about without your ex and to pursue things that interest you.
Completely cutting all ties between you and your ex is unwise despite the advice of counselors and other online sources. Let your partner have some breathing room to consider their feelings for you and then approach them carefully and gently. An occasional call or text message to show that you still care is sufficient during your time apart. Remember to be polite during your contacts and consider their feelings.
If after some time apart you sense your ex may be ready to welcome your friendship again, ask them to meet you for a brief date. Lunch, a walk in the park, or a movie are all ideal outings after some time apart. If your ex comes to realize how much they miss you, your relationship may be saved. Time will tell whether the relationship can pick up steam again.
Reconnecting With Ex Varies On The Reasons Of Your Separation
Reconnecting with your ex may be easy or hard depending on the reasons you parted. Your mutual commitment, love and willingness to reunite will determine the long-term success of your relationship. You can receive only so much advice before you have to rely on your own sense of the likelihood that you and your ex will reconnect. Ultimately your ability to get back together with your ex will depend on both of your personalities and the closeness the two of your shared prior to breaking up.
