Do Exes Come Back or is it Just Wishful Thinking?

Yes, it is possible for an ex to return. Especially, when your breakup was just temporary or a mistake. If your ex is missing you and cannot live or cope without you, then there is a high chance of you getting back together.

How Do You Know When or if an Ex Will Return?

Signs Your Ex Won't Come Back

  • Your ex told you to move on;
  • Intentionally trying to make you jealous;
  • Blocked you from everything;
  • Avoids you at all costs.

Now, that you have a better idea of where you and your ex stand. You should have a better understanding of whether you'll reunite or not. 

Is Reuniting with Your Ex Really a Good Thing? Or is it Better to Stay Apart? 

Again, this is another factor that depends entirely on your situation. You know the reason as to why the relationship ended. However, there is a possibility that when couples do reunite, they can make their relationships work and be stronger than ever. 

Still, it can be extremely difficult to predicate whether your relationship will work if you do reunite with your ex. Let's see whether it's worth reuniting with your ex:

  • Your breakup was due to external reasons. Some examples are due to family issues;
  • There was a little misunderstanding in your relationship or a miscommunication issue;
  • You and your ex just needed some space and time apart to work on yourselves before repairing your relationship.

When it's best not to reunite:

  • Your relationship ended due to abuse. Whether it was physical or emotional;
  • You or your partner have fallen out of love;
  • When you've been trying to make things work for years and nothing improves.

There are some instances such as infidelity for example, in which you can still reunite with your ex and make your relationship work. 

The best thing to do is analyze the situation and think about whether it's best for you to get back together or not. Write down all the positives and negatives to help break it down.
