Do you sometimes want to scream, “I just want my ex back!” If so, you are not alone. After breaking up, hundreds of people find themselves wanting their ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend back. It is a perfectly natural response. However, how should you handle these feelings? Should you try to win your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend back? Or should you move on with your life? By asking yourself the following questions, you will be able to determine the decision that is right for you.
Do I want them back because I am feeling lonely? Ask yourself this question, because it is essential. Often times, it is not your ex that you are missing; it is the feeling of having someone in your life. When you are in a relationship, you constantly have someone to talk to and keep you company. After the break up, you usually lose this. Thus, it is likely that you will be feeling lonely. After you have realized this is the source of wanting your ex back, it will be easier to move on.
Do I actually love them? This is another important question that you should ask yourself, although it can sometimes be difficult to answer. If you want them back because you truly care, then it is a good idea to try for a second chance. Winning your ex back requires time and effort, but if you love them and don’t at least try, you will regret it. But how can you get your ex back, exactly? The three best ways are to have confidence, improve your appearance, and make an attempt to talk to them again – even suggest hanging out if you are feeling brave enough.
By asking yourself these important questions, you will be able to figure out if “I just want my ex back” is truly how you feel.
