Dating can get tricky, especially when we are younger since we are still trying to figure everything out, and this includes who we are, what we want out of a relationship, and what we are looking for in a partner. This process of figuring things out is ongoing, and that is why a lot of us get into all kinds of relationships to try and find what might work for us.
If you feel that a past girlfriend was better for you, then you might consider reconnecting and even mending the relationship to give it another go. So, if you are looking to go about fixing your relationship with your ex girlfriend, you should probably go through a few pointers first.
- The first thing you want to ask yourself is why you want to reconnect and possibly mend your relationship with your ex. A lot of times people end up making sudden decisions because they might be feeling lonely or sad, and temporary feelings should not be influencing a major decision. So, you need to look for a genuine reason as opposed to getting swept up in your feelings.
- You ask yourself what it is exactly that you miss about your ex. This will help you get the facts straight and make sure that you are about to re-enter the relationship with a clear head.
- Ask yourself what caused the breakup in the first place. We tend to look at things through rose-colored glasses, so focusing on the breakup of the previous relationship can also let you figure out if the problem/cause of the breakup might continue being a problem later on as well, and if it is a problem you need to figure out how to better deal with it.
- Reach out to your ex and meet up. You can assess how you feel and respond better in person.
