It all depends on the situation. If he's worth it, be very careful and play your cards right. If your serious about getting someone back, you have to give it the time/space and attention it needs. Think it out first so you don't do anything dumb. Don't rush it, don't badger him and don't plead, it's very unattractive and needy. I am in the same situation and I know it's going to probably take 2 years before I can approach it again. He's Mr. Right for me though so I am willing to do what I have too for now and will try again when the time is right. My guy needed his space, space to sow his wild oats or he wouldn't be good for me or anyone else for that matter until he did. He married the only woman he ever dated so I was the first one after his 18 year relationship/marriage with her. He says he still loves me and that he can't weigh me out for the future. I guess that's what gives me hope. He also told me he's very attracted to me and that he fell harder and faster for me than his wife. So there's always matter what anyone else tells you. When you think the time is right. For whatever the reason was that you two broke up in the first place, just make sure that, that person won't do whatever they did again. I guess it always depends on the situation. I hope things go well for you though. Think it over, and follow your heart!

There is more than one question here. Why do you want your ex back? Who dumped who? Maybe you will never get back with your ex. It is okay to move on. It is okay to wait to date. It is not okay to be hard on yourself. You should heal and be with someone who is good to you, treats you nice.

Should you get back with an ex?


Should you wait for your ex to come back if he is seeing someone else?

The worst thing to do is wait for an ex to come back. It is better to move forward in your life by getting out with friends; back out into society where you meet different people and you may well surprise yourself by meeting someone far more appealing to you than you ex. If your ex sees you are not waiting around for them and getting on with your life there is a chance they may try coming back into your life to resume the relationship. By getting on with your life you will never lose either way and will end up with the person you truly should be with.
