Why do women go back to their ex?
I don't get it, lately it seems to me that no matter how bad a break up was or how much of a douche bag the ex is, women always go back to the ex sooner or later. Why?

OMG! I'm talking to my ex now and he didn't care much about me and would flirt with some other girl when we were going out. That's the funny part I told myself that I would never date any of my exes again but it's hard keeping that promise.
He would tell me how sorry he was and how he wouldn't make the same mistake. And he would keep calling me pet names.
I think we do this because it's so much easier to just go back out with someone you have already dated. It's better than having to start all over again with a new guy. Well, that's my opinion anyway.

Generalizing is bad. I had a boyfriend for 4 years, loved him madly, moved in with him, was even considering marrying him when he proposed. But when I discovered he was keeping things from me, and things he knew I was 100% against, I left him and did not look back no matter how much I wanted to for a while.
I have a good appreciation for myself and what I want from life and despite loving him madly I knew that if I were to be in a relationship would be with someone that inspired me to be better, not with someone who only drags me down!
So no, not all women go back to their ex. Some of us know better than to better bridges we are meant to burn.

Not true. You're getting a very biased view of girls who go back to exes from sites such as this. If you will notice, the majority of those questions from girls who want their exes back are from the less than or just over the 18 year old range.
Sure, you will always get a woman who likes to be hammered on and treated like crap to go back to a bad relationship. But this is not the majority.
They don't always get back together, but I've noticed a trend that sometimes they do
id say its because they are insecure with themselves, and believe their ex has really changed or that they have changed
they are also familiar with their ex, so getting with them is easier than getting with someone else
they might be too scared, hurt, or even lazy to find someone else,
or can't find someone else.
