If an ex and you are both 26 and started dating at 19 and fell in love and you've been on again off again for 7 years and are both tired of this cycle but still care should you take a chance again?

To tell you the truth I think what you both need is some time away from each other. It's obvious you both are uncertain of a permanent relationship and 7 years of living or seeing each other is pretty close to marriage. If you have any doubts, it's best to split up for a bit and date other people. Don't end up one of the stats of getting married and cheating a year or so later. Good luck Marcy
