“My ex dumped me and wants me back” is a phrase I am often approached with. People looking for advice in this complicated situation are often torn between their feelings for their ex and their own dignity – making the decision of what to do virtually impossible. However, with this advice, you will be able to figure out how you should handle the situation.
The first step is to determine why they want you back. Is it because they truly care about you and realized they missed you? Or is it because they just want to use you? If you think they just want you around again to toy with, do not go back to them – even if you think you are in love. Nobody deserves to be used like that. However, if you believe they are sincere, consider giving them a second chance.
Do I still care about my ex? If you realized – in the time of your breakup – that you prefer being single, then do not go back to them. Even if they want you and actually care about you, the relationship is not going to work if you have lost interest in them. On the other hand, if you still have feelings for them, think about what it would be like to be in a relationship with them again. Are you willing to take them back and try to make it work? If so, then go for it!
If your ex truly cares about you and you care about them in return, then try out the relationship again. I’m not saying you have to declare yourselves boyfriend and girlfriend, but going on a date together is a great way to discover if there is still potential between you.
With these tips, handling this normally complicated situation will not be so complicated anymore.
