should I get back together with my ex girlfriend?
Most Helpful Girl
We've all been there, right? You break up. Time goes by. Things get quiet, and then out of nowhere you get an innocent text message, e-mail, or phone call. Before you know it, "I'm sorry. I'll never hurt you again," ends with the question "Should I try this again?" No, you shouldn't.
Exes are like old clothes in your closet. Sometimes they fit, sometimes they don't. They may be out of style. You may not like to wear them, or maybe you do, or maybe you just wear them once in a while. For whatever reason, though, you just cannot bear to throw them away. Just like the clothes you keep in your closet and no longer wear, there is a reason that your exes are just that.
Time apart from an ex can provide a moment of clarity about the relationship that was not possible or was difficult to achieve during it. Hindsight gives us the ability to savor our regret and reconsider the choice we made. In vulnerable moments, though, hindsight also affords us the opportunity to crave something that was flawed but comfortable.
Your girlfriend cheated. I don't always agree with "Once a cheater, always a cheater," but it can be pretty accurate. I know you feel pretty comfortable with this girl because you've been with her for so long, but believe it when I say - there are girls out there who wouldn't cheat on you. Ever. So there would be no need to play this game of "should I get back with me ex?" You're young. Go out and explore. If you settle now for someone who clearly doesn't respect you enough to be faithful to you, you're never going to know what it's like to have a girlfriend you can trust 100%.0
