I see a lot of people on here tend to lean toward the "exes are exes for a reason" philosophy, but I don't always agree with them. I think people can change and be able to have a functioning relationship the second/third time around.
It doesn't usually work the next time around if both people haven't improved themselves, and found their own happiness. I have seen couples reconnect successfully, though.
So, I was wondering, is everyone totally against the idea of giving your ex one last chance (second or third, maybe even forth)? What if some time has gone by before you start the relationship again? Would it make a difference to see that your ex has changed for the better?

I definitely agree with 2nd chances. I believe that people make mistakes and I know I would want a second chance. If you're in different places in your life than you were when you broke up, I think its possoble for htings to work out a second time. No relationship is going to be perfect, and everyon'es going to have their problems. Its if you try to fix them that matters.
But, it also depends on the situation. If they cheated on you or played you multiple times, then I htink no, you shouldn't take them back. I don't believe in unlimited chances. If someone is making a mistake over an over, they're just not changing.
I would definitely give a second chance most of the time, but past that, I can get a little doubtful.1
