Tell me about your personal experience where you thought you would never get back with your S/O after either a mutual breakup or a very rough break up. Were yall able to work things out? If so how are yall today?

No way would I try to work things out. He thought the grass was greener on the other side. Only see each other when it involves our children and I still have a hard time being cordial, but only do it for the kids. That is the only communication we have.

I’ve done that twice.

The first time was with a guy I’d been with for about 2 months. He was a jerk. We fought and broke up. I realize now that I had very low self esteem, so I cried and cried and we got back together. He was still a jerk and we broke up for real soon after.

The second time was with my current boyfriend. We’d been together 2 years. Things had been wonderful, but communication broke down, we got in a dumb but loaded fight and broke up. I realized I was happier with him, the mistakes I had made, and we talked and talked and talked and gave it another shot. It’s been another year, and we’re very happy.

I tried that with my ex. We went back and forth, back and forth… Emotionally, I felt like a a very long, stretched out piece of Silly Putty. We couldn’t make it work after 13 years and I don’t know why I thought a little more time might help but it sure didn’t.

I don’t think anyone should ever get back with their s/o. The relationship would never be the same. Someone would bring up the past and start pointing fingers. Time to move on.

I’ve never wanted to do it but I have several friends who tried and in all instances then they were hurt just as bad or worse all over again. A few people I’ve known even divorced then remarried or tried to remarry their exes- those had the worst results.

I had that experience too. Back then, getting back with my ex was the most sensible thing to do because I know it was the only way to find out whether we’re really meant to be together or not. It didn’t work out, but I am very grateful to have answered all the whys through my own self-discovery.

Sorry, I’ve never done the break up, make up, break up, make up thing.

To make a long story short, months after a break up that was pretty much the equivalent of watching the sun go out, we realized that it was a situation of our own making and with time and a whole lot of want to and understanding, unmade it. To this day she is my dearest and closest friend and I hers. We love each other and while our relationship is not what we envisioned it would be all those years ago, I don’t believe either of us would trade it for anything.
