Most Helpful Guy
80% of the time, getting back together with an ex is a BAD idea, because the same things that caused you to break up are likely still present. If you didn't like the ride the first time, why do it again?
The other 20% accounts for situations where there was a one-time event that screwed something up (loss of a parent, not getting into the college he wanted, having to be long distance, etc.) that has been completely resolved and put behind you.
So, yes, it can occasionally work, but only under certain circumstances, and the odds are still strongly against success.2THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
