    Not a good idea at all, even when they have moved on. You should just forget about your ex. There was something that made you break up with him. So you should not bother with this guy he's wasting your time. Also ex's should just stay that way.

    It was a while ago that we broke up, over something i think is silly. and we both dated other people since then. just the other week we started chatting again and it made me realise what i liked about him, and from what hes told other people he feels the same.

    Well if he's in another relationship with some other girl now then just leave that. But yeah you could just stay firends.

    IMO, it isn't a good idea to do so.

    Ok, here's my take on it.

    About Christmas last year, I started going out with a long-term friend of mine. He was having a hard time at uni and eventually starting working full-time instead, and I was frantic about getting the grades I needed for Manchester. What with me being at boarding school and him working full-time we never saw each other, were both stressed-out and miserable and we split up after a couple of months.

    I went off to uni in September and we stayed friends although we didn't talk much. However, I met up with him over the Christmas holidays and it suddenly crashed home for both of us how much we'd missed each other. We've decided to give it another try - we're both much more settled, know what we want from the relationship this time.
    Things are going better than they ever did last time round, and we're happy in the knowledge that we know we need to solve problems rather than just ignore them and hope they go away.

    I think relationships with exes can work but you have to remember not just that they WERE your ex, but WHY they were your ex. If you can tackle the reason that made you split up in the first place you'll be able to start afresh with no demons.

    my crrent boyfriend is an ex boyfriend and i have never been happier. we were young in first relationship and wernt ready for commitment although we did love eachother in some respects. now that we are older and have experienced other relationships we are so happy with eachother. therefore the only reason he was my ex was because of our age and the fact we needed to mature to appreciate eachother. so yes it can work.

    ex's are ex's for a reason... unless you split up without any baggage whatsoever... it'll only cause you hassle.

    Sure, there's always a reason why you split up. But some things change, and sometimes that reason may disappear. At this kind of age people are likely to split up because they want to enjoy being young, free and single, or because they feel too pressured being in a serious relationship. A couple of years down the line, they're likely to feel completely differently.

    I suppose it'd really have to be years down the line so anything that happened would of been totally forgotten and irelevant.

    Why years down the line? Sometimes people go through tough times and just need a few months to themselves. I've seen it happen lots of times.

    I deffo agree with Susiemakemeblue on this one, I mean I have recently split up with my bf (coz of distant and the fact i havce petsonal issues I neexto resolve) but i would deffo get back wth him in a couple of years. However, if you split up for a proper reason then I wouldnt think it would be a brill idea..

    Depends on the circumstances surrounding your split, and how long its been?

    My bf finsihed with me, so for 3/4 weeks i was single etc, but we got back together after he realised he didn't want to not have me in his life, and we are happier than ever now. But thats just one situation, quite often it doesn't work? It depends if you are wiling and wanting to try again
