Getting Back Together With Your Ex (If It’s Even A Good Idea)

It was Miss Taylor Swift who sang the now famous words, “We are never, ever, ever getting back together.” These words have been stuck in my head basically since her song came out. So does Taylor follow her own advice? Well, she’s broken up with Harry Styles, but even as recently as this past weekend, it was reported that Taylor apparently wanted to get back together with Harry while in France.

Let’s be honest – there are always rumors in the celeb world about who is dating or reuniting, so I don’t know if there’s a way to know for sure. In any case, it does bring up an interesting question about whether or not you should give your ex another chance or live by the lyrics of Taylor’s song. I’ll be honest – a lot of times, getting back with an ex may not be a great idea. However, it definitely happens: a new study found that 44 percent of participants between the ages of 17 and 24 have reconciled with an ex.

Here are a few things to think about if you are seriously considering getting back with an ex, as well as a few tips on what to do if you do end up reuniting as a couple.

Have you (or would you) ever get back together with an ex? Under what conditions? Tell me in the comments!

    I got back together with my ex after 4 months of rebuilding a friendship, one month of secretive dating (for the wrong reasons), and another 2 months of him trying to get me back. We’re now happier than ever and have learned how to communicate and get to know each other in ways we have never known before. Getting back together with him has taught be a lot about myself and relationships in general, and how to deal with heartbreak and trusting someone again. So I agree with these tips! Definitely get back together for the right reasons, be true to your own emotions, and never go back to the same patterns. Good luck 🙂

      and by “trying to get me back”, I mean successfully proving himself to me that he’s worth another try

    First, she talks trash about him in the press (kiss like a snail, really?) Now she wants to get back together? Tay, makeup your mind.
