10 Things That Will Happen If You Get Back Together With Your Ex
Getting back together with your ex is not a decision that should be taken lightly. After all, you broke up for a reason, right? Giving them a second chance was probably not in your mind when you broke up, and you may have even told them you never wanted to see them ever again.
But if you were both in love, it’s perfectly natural that at some point you would get together again. If you’re in a position where you’re considering giving things another go, let’s take a look at 10 things that will happen if you get back together with your ex.
1. Your Friends Will Question You
Okay, so you’ve just spent the last three months hating on your ex to your friends. You’ve got drunk and rang them in the middle of the night countless times to tear into your ex, telling them how much you never want to see them and how you are so done with them.
For this reason, you can expect a bit of ire from those same friends when you return to your ex. They’re going to question you, and they might even be a little bit annoyed. You need to expect this. After all, you did tell them that you don’t need a lover when you’ve got the best friends in the world.
2. Your Mom Will Have Something To Say
And everyone else. But your mom especially will be ready to give her two cents, and she’s either gong to annoy you or annoy the heck out of you. In this situation, you just need to ride the storm. Your mom will feel that she’s entitled to her opinion, and you’ll just have to let her express it. Once she calms down, she’ll probably accept things as they now are.
Probably. Okay, buy her a present. That should keep her quiet!
3. Not To Mention Everyone Else Will Question You
When you get back together with your ex, you’ve got to expect a million and one questions. It’s inevitable. The questions will come thick and fast, and they’ll be centred around why you guys got back together and why you broke it off in the first place.
You’ll walk into work the next morning and some guy will casually say, “So! You’re back together I take it?” Somehow, everyone will know that you’re a pairing again, and they’ll all want a bit of juicy gossip. Be prepared.
4. You’ll Even Question Yourself
It’s natural when you get back together with your ex to ask questions of yourself. Have you done the right thing? Will you have to see their mom all the time again? Going back to your ex is not a simple, snap decision and you will have doubts and queries to answer. This happens all the time, and again it’s just another storm to ride. If you come up with all the answers, you’re fine.
5. People Will Gossip
You need to be prepared for people to gossip about you if you take your ex back. Particularly if you live in a small town where everyone seems to know everyone. Some people have opinions about everything and they’ll certainly have an opinion about your behaviour.
But you don’t need to care about the gossip. Live the life the way you want to live and to heck with everyone else!
6. Your Friend Who Fancied You Will Disappear
When you broke up the first time around, there is always that one friend who has liked you for years and saw this as their chance to ask you out. Naturally, they didn’t want to strike as soon as you were single; they thought they’d give it a while. Unfortunately, they waited just long enough for you to get back together with your ex!
So what happens? After weeks of consoling you and being there for you, and even flirting with you, they disappear. They can’t bare it anymore, and they delete their Facebook. Oh no! Have you lost a friend? Probably not. They’ll get over it.
7. It Might Feel Awkward At First…
The first time around, you’d have had no qualms about cuddling up to one another on the sofa. Now, though, things are different and you don’t know what to do. You want to go in for a cuddle, but you’re just not so sure. Are you, like, totally back together, for definite? And can you still do all the things you used to do last time? Things can become even more awkward if one of you has dated someone else during your time apart. But don’t worry, you’ll soon get used to one another again!
8. …But Then It Will Feel Better Than Last Time
The awkward stage tends not to last too long, and once you’ve had your first big kiss and cuddle, things will seem even better than last time around.
In this case, you need to make sure you don’t get carried away. Yes, it’s great being back in one another’s arms, and yes you’ve missed each other. But this doesn’t mean it’s perfect. There will still be problems that need to be ironed out, and you’ll still need to work at things if you’re going to make a success of this relationship. Otherwise, you might found yourselves arguing again any minute now.
9. You’ll Find Out What Really Happened During Your Break
“So! What did you do during our break?”
“Oh, you know. I looked through our old photos. Saw my mom and dad. Not much. Just generally moped about. How about you?”
“I dated Steve. You know Steve?”
“My best friend?”
Oops. When you get back together after a break, it’s inevitable that you’re going to want to find out what the other did during your time apart. And one of you might not like what you hear. This is where things can get angry and tense, and sometimes it’s best to avoid this conversation altogether. On the other hand, if you are going to make it work the second time around honesty is the best policy.
10. You’ll Feel More In Love
Ultimately, you will feel more in love this time. You’ve come through obstacles and hardships, and you’ve both had the strength of mind to overcome them together. You’ve rode the storm, and despite breaking up and fighting, you’re back together, fighting strong. For this reason, your love will have grown and you will soon feel more in love than last time around. Aww. Sweet.
