According to reports, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are back together after that whole cheating scandal. Huh. Experts weigh in on if getting back together with your ex-boyfriend is a good idea — and share the rules you must follow, if you do decide to give it another try.

Hello, my ex boyfriend and I were together for four and half years, we got together our senior year in high school and we are now 21. Our relationship was great other than communication. I would tell him everything and anytime something was bothering me but he wouldn’t. It was almost like he had to much pride to let someone know he needed to talk. Other than that we made each other laugh we had all the same interests. I recently took a new job in January were u had to work every weekend and he was only off on weekends so we didnt get to spend much time together. He broke up with me about a month ago out of nowhere we hadn’t been arguing or anything. Then a week later he was already with someone else they aren’t in an relationship but they spend a lot of time together. I have followed the no contact rule and just been going out having fun with friends. He texted me once saying he heard was messing around with someone else and I told him I was just hanging out with a friend and he said he was just picking on me and I didn’t reply back. Do you think we have a chance of working things out and getting back together?

Picture this: you have two people, a master and a slave. Who do you think is higher in the social hierarchy? The master, obviously. By accommodating your ex girl’s every desire or demand, you behaved like a slave (inferior) and she behaved like a master (superior).

It’s not at all uncommon for couples to breakup for a bit before reuniting, but a second-chance isn’t for everyone. INSIDER asked relationship coach Tiya Cunningham-Sumter for some signs that you should seriously consider a reconciliation.

You have to look at both negative and positive aspects of your ex and your relationship. Every couple on the face of this planet fights, but if you two broke up, then chances are there was something seriously wrong with your relationship. Think about your relationship rationally. Don’t let your emotions control your thoughts. Imagine, you are a parent and your child was in the same situation as you, would you still tell your son or daughter to get their ex back?

I just broke up with my girlfriend today and it’s all because of me. She said I was being harsh and she said I don’t love her when I actually do love her soo badly. And she said she cant handle me anymore. Can you help me solve my problem and help me to get her back.

Hi, we were engaged,she called off our engagement, she is very egoist lying and stubborn and i was abusive (verbally), controlling, jelous, insecure, over possessive. I loved her from the best i have but her ego and stubbornness made me behave wrong to her, i pleaded begged and cried but she didn’t changed her decision, it was me who always use to go to her after every fight where she used to stop talking to me for several days, after broke up i re approached her but she wanted to be friends firstly i said yes but she was so casual and seemed moved on so i started no contact, its been three months i didn’t heard anything from her, she is completely moved on now she seems happy and outgoing and enjoying her life, and here i am so obsessed and crying and dying for her even though i have decided i wont ever contact her or give any signal to contact me, if she wants to workout again then she has to contact me, otherwise its over for me, i am down, i am low but ill get up and ill make it large.

So i wrote him that i am sorry for making the mistake IN THE PAST for telling about my pain to our common friends. And that if it’s true what he wants, then be it. If he wants to talk, he can contact me..

When you are facing a very difficult breakup recovery; if your ex left you for someone else, if you were in a long distance relationship or if your ex wants nothing to do with you; I strongly suggest that you seek the help of experts in the field in order to get the support you need to meet your goals!

Alice, Your comment highlights a vital point. Upgrading skills only works if BOTH partners are willing to make skill upgrades. If only the partner of the abuser is making changes, the odds of success are close to zero. Worse, becoming more assertive with a violent partner can be downright dangerous.

Im a 35 female and was dating a 36 Year guy for three months. We met through a dating app. We had previously dated 2 years ago for a few months but things fizzled out. He lives an hour and a half away from me, We were in contact daily via texts and saw each other approx once every 7-10 days.

If you live with the person- Your goal is to be a respectful roommate. Make sure any interactions you do have with the person are short, pleasant and to the point. Make sure you are as positive as possible.

A lot of the plan outlined above may not make sense to you right away. In fact, I would be shocked if it did. Don’t worry though because I am going to go through every single step in a very-in depth manner.
