This brings up the age-old question.

Can exes get back together and have a better go of it the second time around?

Does a couple who didn’t work out when they were first dating have a chance if they get back together?  It varies.  If it is a booty call situation, aka friends with benefits, someone is bound to get hurt.

On the other hand, if both people have grown and changed so much that there will be a different vibe for the relationship, sometimes the second time around can work.  I just met a woman who rekindled with her high school boyfriend ten years later. They fell in love and got married.

So, the bottom line is:
1) Be Kind – to yourself and your ex.
2) Don’t just jump into intimacy without rebuilding the relationship unless you are only looking for sex, not love or emotional connection.
