We’ve all considered getting back with an ex for one reason or another. Sometimes it works out. Sometimes it leads to an unhealthy yo-yo-like relationship that just makes you nauseous. Sometimes it even drags on in a strange flirtation that never really goes anywhere but is still not quite platonic.
In some cases, getting back with an ex make sense — time and distance and maturation have set the stage for a successful relationship. In others, well, slamming that book shut is the least you can do to start the healing process. For some there’s even a happy medium — a friendship, even.
So should you get back together with your ex, or are you exes for a reason?
