Has anyone started a new relationship with an ex after a long period of time of being separated? My ex and I have been together on and off for 7 years and have children together so things are a lot more complicated then just losing all contact with him. However I realize that the relationship we had is something that needs to be closed and that door should never be opened again. With that being said I would like to eventually start something new with him but I know it won't happen anytime soon as we both have things to work on separately and he is currently involved with someone else but I have a very calm sensation that things won't last between them but I guess only time can tell. I'm just wondering if anyone over a period of time were able to reconnect with an ex and were able to make things work out.

In all honesty it's RARE, yes because you have kids it makes it truly more complicated, you're never going to get rid of him even if you wanted to. However I have gotten back with an ex before but naturally over time it wasn't the same (negative way), and I was over it, it truly was meant to be over when it was meant to. I guess I just tricked myself into thinking that it could have worked. On the other hand, this guy I was seeing was in the same situation as you, all though he lived with her still because of their young kids and work schedule, however he realized a while ago that it wouldn't work, they both changed as people.0
