They say an ex is an ex for a reason. However, we all experience bumps along the road. After some time, reflection, and a bit of growing up, it could be that you have realized that your ex is actually the one you are meant to be with. But, how are you supposed to know if they are really the one for you? Here are some signs to look out for…
You both make each other feel secure. One of the best ways to tell whether your ex should actually be your happily ever after is how he or she made you feel. Did they make you feel secure? Or, did they make you feel worse about yourself and did your confidence suffer? If the latter applies, you deserve someone who brings you up, not puts you down.
You realize you were in the wrong. When tensions are running high, it can be hard to think with clarity. However, if you have some time on your own to think, you may have come to the conclusion that you were to blame. If this is the case, you should admit you were wrong, apologize and see if you can take it from there. Read this Get Her Back Guide for some further tips if you are in the doghouse.
Your family and friends agree. While your friends and family should not pick your partner, it is certainly a good indication if they believe you should be in a relationship with your ex.
You feel as though you were a better person with your ex. A good relationship is one whereby you bring out the best in each other. You feel like you are the best version of you because your other half has such a positive influence on you. Does this apply to your ex-partner?
You can’t find those feelings with anyone else. This is often something that applies when your ex was your first love. When we are young we can take for granted what we have and assume that the grass is greener, but perhaps you have found that this is not the case?
You broke up over something little. If you broke up over something little, then it is likely that it is not significant enough to stop you from getting back together. However, you do need to be honest with yourself. Did emotions get heated and it turn into a silly break-up? Or, was it simply an excuse to break up because that is what one of you wanted?
If the above applies to you and your ex-partner, it could be that he or she is still the one for you. If so, rekindling your relationship is definitely worth considering, but make sure you do not dive in headfirst. Just because you have been together before does not mean you need to take your relationship at a rapid pace. Slow down and enjoy it properly.
