Most Helpful Girl
I have gotten back together with an ex twice (two different exes). The first time, it was a total disaster. The second time, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. What I've learned is that getting back together with an ex can work, but it depends a lot on why you broke up and the nature of your relationship. If you know what broke you up and it's something you can work on, and you generally really want to be together, then giving the relationship another shot can be worth it. I know that from experience. However, success may not be common.
