Should I Get Back Together With My Ex Boyfriend – 4 Considerations

If you keep thinking about “Should I get back together with my ex boyfriend?”, well the answer can be yes and no. Perhaps there are a couple of things you should first consider before you decide which way to go. Here are the four points.

1) Depends on the age
Quite often people have their first romance in the early adolescent years. They are convinced that they found their true love, and the person means the whole world to them. For years the relationship works out very well, and decades later, they celebrate the Golden Jubilee.  However, for many people the passionate teenage infatuations were not their true love and the relationship didn’t last. They indeed find their real soul mates later. So, if you’re very young and just get into your first love but break up with your boyfriend now, you may want to try dating some other guys to find out if he is the right one for you. If you have been going out with different people and still think that he is your ideal lover, then by all means try to do something to get back with him.

2. Length of the relationship
How long both people have been together can be one of the considerations if the relationship should be saved. If you have just started a romance a few weeks ago, you probably do not know the other person well. Both people who have attracted each other during the early stages of a romance may not recognize that their partner is not an ideal candidate for long term relationship. As your emotions will run very high in the beginning, weeks later you find yourself to be no longer craving for that person, and you split up.  There will be no future for the relationship in such situation.

But, if both people have been together for a bit of time, the two of you may have taken things for granted and break up. While life gets in the way, it is easy for two partners to drift apart. You may spend more time at work or with your friends than with your other half. You also need to deal with stress, sickness and financial worries. If you have separated with your partner after being together for a long time, then you should discuss it and do whatever it takes to salvage the relationship if it is worth saving. Sometimes, both people may really want to terminate the bond but at least you have tried.

3. Reasons for breakup
What happened in the past will partly determine if both people should be back together as couple. If the two of you have separated due to some silly mistakes or misunderstandings, then you should lower your pride and apologize to your significant other. However, if the breakup was due to someone who has involved in an affair, fraud, deceit, or lies, then it will take more effort to win back your love. Trust will have to be restored first.

4. What you want
Ultimately it is still the choice of both people for what exactly they want when moving forward. Obviously you can’t force the other person to love you even if you resort to pleading, begging, crying, or blackmailing. Getting back together with your boyfriend is easier if he also has the intention to recover the romance with you.
