What To Do When An Ex Wants You Back

This weekend something happened to me that has never happened before. An ex wanted to hang out.

My dating history is pretty horrendous. All my relationships have ended by basically us not talking to each other... usually they ignored me. I've never had an ex try and rekindle our relationship and it threw me for a loop.

About 4 months ago, we had a bad evening and I had reached a breaking point. He dropped me off and we didn't speak again... until this past weekend. This past Saturday, he blew up my phone saying he wanted to catch up and he missed me. I quite frankly was flabbergasted because I was pretty convinced we'd never speak again.

Unfortunately, I'm a curious person and very fascinated by human behavior so I engaged in conversation to try and understand his logic for why he thought I'd ever hang out with him again. (Note to self: don't engage!). Long story short, he came over to take care of me because I was sick. Oy vey!

It's hard not to be nostalgic about the good times but I'm older and wiser now. I remember that although we had good times I had given him 18 months of my life and he didn't appreciate it then, so why would he now? The next day I told him that it wasn't going to work out and we just shouldn't be in each other's lives. I'm guessing by his lack of response he agrees (lame!).

It's ultimately up to you to decide whether or not it's worth giving the relationship another try. For me, I had given him plenty of chances and this time around the feelings were no longer there so I gave him the boot.

Have you ever had an ex want you back? What did you do?

  1. They are called ex's for a reason. They are examples of what you don't want in a relationship.

  2. I have definitely had this happen to me and now we are back together and make 3 yrs next week. So it really is a case by case situation. We didnt work out the first time around and of course I was beyond hurt but looking back now I think everything worked out for the best. Everything always happens for a reason. If you feel it in your heart that you still want to be with this person and no one else then having them come back in your life is a great thing.

    That is how i felt about my ex/boyfriend. I knew I still wanted to be with him and that he was it for me so us re-connecting was what I needed.

    But this doesn't have to be the case for everyone. You will find a great man when the time is right for you.


  3. Once an ex and I break up, I pretty much pretend that they are dead.
    It's peaceful.
