Want That Old Thing Back? 5 Ways to Get Back With Your Ex


1. Get it together
If you two were a hot mess together—then chances are you might have been a little bit of a hot mess on your own. If you’re knee deep in splitsville because you were overly jealous, had some type of super destructive and unhealthy habit (drugs, binge drinking, etc), or brought drama to the relationship, then rekindling the flame and repeating these same behaviors again will yield the same results. If you’re split because he was cheating, make sure you’re ready to forgive him and let go of the hurt before you enter into second chance zone.  The bottom line: Get yourself together first before you try to get him back.  It’s like the oxygen mask on the plane—secure your own oxygen mask first, before you try to help someone else.
