Most Helpful Guy

  • Advantages of an ex:

    You know his story, and there's not much mystery, so you probably know about all his flaws.

    Sex is familiar, and you know how to get each other going.

    Disadvantages of an ex:

    You know his story, and there's not much mystery, so you probably know about all his flaws.

    Sex is familiar, and it's easy to fall into a routine.

    You two broke up for a reason. Unless that reason was something difficult or impossible to overcome (he moved to the other side of the world, one of you was underage and your parents broke you up, etc.) it could come back and haunt your relationship (one of you cheated, he blew you off for his friends, etc.).

    Advantages of Mr.New

    That feeling of falling in love all over again.

    Getting to discover each other

    Sex with someone new is always more exciting, at least the first few times

    Not having to listen to your friends, family, etc. for getting back with your ex

    Disadvantages of Mr.New

    Getting to discover what you don't like about each other

    Sex with someone new can be very awkward and uncomfortable the first few times

    Unless I was really into someone, and the relationship had ended either on really good terms and/or for reasons outside our control, I'd go with the new person in your situation.
