Ever got back together with one? Did it work out?
Asking for a friend.
Better just to rip it off like a plaster. Or gangrenous leg.
the vital fact.
As now elaborated below, the reason for them breaking up now appears to have been resolved, so...
with all your exes. Cheers.
about a year after we first got together. Now we've been together for another eight-ish years and we're getting married. So that counts, I guess? We weren't really apart long enough for me to think of him as my 'ex' though.
Have seen it end diastrously.
About the same percentage as any two strangers getting together really.
keeping a relationship going/getting one back together after complications
it's rooted in this absurd idea that you should strike people off your relationship radar for isolated incidents because obviously the next person you meet won't be susceptible to the average statistical likelihood of being a complete prick now and again.
(this doesn't apply to actual violence, just humans being selfish humans)
you will have a very good time
in which carla and her sports person boyfriend broke up before each game because going out with her was bad luck for him not because it meant they had better sexy fun.
If you have been properly apart for a while and are definitley broken up, I'd struggle to see why you should ever go back. it's the opposite of progress.
Both parties remained on good terms.
Reason for breakup appears to now be resolved.
My friend is now unsure of how to approach this/test the waters...
Each other, that is.
it's 'never go back'.
Those of you that know me will attest to this.
Wouldn't it be lovely to..."
just bumped into each other on a night out, had drunk sex, was alright. still perfectly civil if we ever see each other about
everyone is a winner
I don't so much burn bridges as detonate them altogether.
They'd ether hate me too much or I'd remember why all the bad stuff happened in the first place and it'd all go wrong again.
long answer: noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Don't try and claim it ma0sm. Not after everything else this week.
It didn't last very long, but I think it was a good idea as we both probably had unfinished business and when we did finally break up again felt a lot more positive and optimistic about it.
Think my friend should've asked the F365 forum instead.
show some semblance of having your shit together
Its so unnecessary
you need a chirpier outlook on the world, my grizzled northern chum.
Therefore you should act in some way as to alter the situation. If it means telling them that you want to get back together then you should do it. At least if they refuse then you can move on with your love life (after having a very shit couple of weeks)
very much endorse this, you'll feel better about yourself if you just do it, even if it's "wrong" but that's better than nothing
But they are fairly certain that the other party is more than interested in getting back together; they're more worried about making it happen then realising it's a terrible idea and hurting the other party unnecessarily...
whether you're actually talking about a friend or not.
She is a great lass.
Got back together 5 years ago yesterday actually, and just got married this summer. Funny how these things work out sometimes!
Resolved some of the issues that caused the first break up, didn't resolve some of the others, and found whole new reasons to not ever be in a relationship with each other ever again.
In summary, 3/10, would not repeat.
There's 2 exes I would jump at getting back with instantly, but deep down I know it wouldn't work out long term.
But yeah your friend should go with their gut. Yep.
then do it.
they were together for six years, then apart for a year and a half. now together again for two/three years. in the intervening period she slept around. he didn't so much as kiss anyone. she's the only person he's ever banged. i kept urging him to spread his wings. he remained steadfast. knightly.
had friends who'd done this three or four times (one year on, one year off, six months on, six months off, six months on, six months off etc.) and every single time it ended for the same reason
if you're going to do this i think it's best to remember that you broke up for a reason but if you both want to do it then why shouldn't you
personally i probably wouldn't do it cause i don't think i could be bothered with it, everyone else i've seen do it has always ended up really messy and horrible
the break-up happened because she was impatient with his fogeyish, laid-back energy and wanted more fun! and excitement! in her life
she later discovered that she did not in fact need these things (at least, in quite the ways she'd thought)
