Not all relationship breakups are terminal. Things can be said in the heat of the moment that go too far, and this can lead to you both going your separate ways. However, often on reflection one or both of you may regret ending things so suddenly. If your ex begins to show a renewed interest, make sure you don’t rush into getting back together. You can get your ex back but take your time, as rushing into things may cause you to suffer from premature reconciliation.
After the end of a relationship emotions are naturally running a little high. It is important at a time like this to take things slow. The usual advice is to have a period where you do not contact each other, as this allows feelings to subside, and for you both to accept and think about the situation you find yourselves in.
This is all well and good, but what if your ex contacts you, and starts to show interest again? Your reaction will probably be to think yippee, and to rush back to their sides, but before you do you should slow down and think about things. Many fledgling repaired relationships suffer from premature reconciliation. Rushing to get back together and maybe jumping into bed together, whilst the emotions of your breakup are still fresh in your mind, is not a firm foundation to rebuild things on.
Much better to say to your ex “Let’s take it slow and see how it goes.” There really is no substitute for the slow and steady approach, if you want to have a chance of rebuilding anything with your significant other after a breakup. The saying time is a great healer is very true in this case.
If you do want to get your ex back after a breakup, give yourself the best chance of making it work by avoiding the temptation to rush back into things. Don’t let premature reconciliation happen to you! You will have a much stronger and more stable relationship as a result.
