Do you believe in the Boomerang Theory?

Do you believe in the Boomerang Theory? This expressed in the notion that if you love something, set it free, if it comes back to you, it was meant to be.

This is often observed in relationships where two people have a great connection but they break up. Often the timing isn't right or they have issues they need to work through, or they may have met someone else or want to date others casually.

Eventually, both partners begin exclusive relationships with others. But in time, they end up getting back together.

Do you subscribe to the Boomerang Theory? Have you had experiences in your romantic relationships which support it? Does it inform the way you feel when a relationship ends?

  • I can't think of a time when a man hasn't come back around. I think this theory only works if the break up is dealt with in a mature way. For instance, my bf and I just broke up bc he has too much going on to give me the attention I want. I could be a girl about it and cry and whine or be a woman and give him space. 9 times out of 10 give the person what they want and they come back around.

  • No. I do believe in Yo-Yo Theory which is that people will continuously cycle back to one another, realize they hate each other, leave of course, and then return expecting something different. Usually this surrounds that whole "I like the ______" element of wording while Boomerang Theory is built on the idea that if you chuck it then it won't hit a wall and just... you know, not come back.

  • I think it's always possible, but I tend to be a little more cynical with matters like this...though I do sometimes find myself hoping to be proven wrong.

  • No. I do not believe that it's meant to be if an (non existent ofc) ex of 5 years comes back with 2 kids

  • I do, that's why I'm not actively seeking a girlfriend.

    • In other words, you have faith that you will get back together with a previous girlfriend, even if you don't seek her out, so you are just waiting for it to happen? I do hope it happens for you, and I want to believe this is true, don't you?

    • Of course, I am extremely patient but it does hurt a bit. And no, never had a gf. It's just that I long for one and know what she looks like but if I actively seek her, it becomes distorted. Eh, I don't know
