I'm just curious to hear stories of others who had been on a break/ broken up then got back together? How long was the break? And did the nature of your relationship change in anyway because it? Thanks just recently broke with my partner but I'm hoping space and time will be enough.
I would rather put a gun to my head, not going to lie.
Anyway, plenty of stories out there about ex's getting back together and I'm sure you can find them with a quick Google search. That said, ignore all the stuff that tells you "how to get your ex back"; it's a load of rubbish.
As for you, OP; focus on yourself, and take the time to heal. Not to get your ex back, but to move on. If you get back together in the future, then you will, but otherwise by healing and moving on you set yourself up for a more healthier lifestyle and the chance to meet someone new down the line.
Yeah i see what u mean but it's so important for you to take this time just for yourself not for anyone else.
You need this time to improve yourself and tell yourself that you are worth more than this and that there'll be more girls out there coming your way.
Only time will truly heal the obsession
My ex tried to get back with me and tbh if she was a couple of months earlier, I might have said yes. But now I'm dating the most amazing person ever and I would never change it!
William and Kate were pretty successful.
Me and my boyfriend got into a massive argument about something then broke up. But I messaged him the next day and we are together. It sounds like it was just in the heat of the moment things went a disaster. We are together now, obviously things arent the same because we both said some cruel things to eachother but they're getting better.
If you couldn't talk it through the first time, you wont be able to the second time.
It kind of depends on the behaviour after the breakup too. Me and my ex got on pretty well when we were together but his behaviour after we broke up was disgusting and quite frankly, unforgivable. So I'm sure I wouldn't get back with him unless I was feeling forgiving that day or something.
I dated someone for a few months, we split up. A year later, I dated another guy for 18 months who was crappy towards the end, ended it awfully, etc etc. He came back 2 weeks later begging me to take him back. (No!). The original guy (who I was good friends with) was someone to talk to and who listened to me while I got over it. Eventually I developed feelings for him and we have been together a while now and going strong! The time between our breakup and getting back together was about 2 and a half years. We both got on with stuff and matured a lot in the interim.
can I first just say thank you so much to everyone who has posted. I wish i could rep every comment. I'm having a really tough time but reading all your helpful advice and support is really giving me hope. But i still don't quite know what I'm hoping for... to get back with her or hope to move on to something else.....
