How Do I Know Dating My Ex Is The Right Thing To Do?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Your ex is asking for another chance at dating. There's part of your heart that knows you will always love him and want him back in your life. The problem is that when he left, you were devastated. You didn't think you'd ever be able to move on with your life after he left. Now he's back and there's a really big part of you though that is terrified of giving him another chance to hurt you that way again. Is giving him another chance the right choice for you to make? How do you know dating your ex is the right thing to do? How do you know you shouldn't run far and fast in the opposite direction?

This can be a tough question for someone in your position. On the one hand, you want to try to make things work for you all over again. The problem is that you know how much it hurts when things don't work out. Do you think you can make it through that kind of all consuming pain again? It's a big risk to love someone in the first place. It's an even bigger risk when you've already been through the entire experience of loving and losing that person. You ultimately have to decide whether you believe the potential pleasure is worth the potential pain if things go wrong. Then, you have to figure out how to make sure things simply don't go wrong this time around.

Easier Said Than Done? Hogwash!

Believe me, I've heard all the usual arguments. I've heard that this is something that's easier said than done. Oddly enough, that isn't the case at all. You can have the best of both worlds and make sure your second chance at love is one that is built to last. In other words, you CAN get your ex back and make sure he sticks around this time. You just have to give up on the notion that this is an impossible dream you're dreaming.

No Guarantees in Love

The problem is that there really aren't any guarantees when it comes to love. It's a risk. But the rewards, when all goes well, are impossible to quantify. The big question you need to ask is now whether dating your ex again is the right thing to do but whether or not you can live with yourself if you decide not to do it. The worst feeling in the world is regret. Will you have regrets and wonder "what if?" every day for the rest of your life if you walk away now?

Yes, you could get hurt. No, it's not easy to make your relationship work after it's already failed. But, sometimes, the only right thing to do is to take a chance on love.
