Before you think it won’t work out this time, you need to seriously analyze why you originally broke up. I have not yet decided if I’ll give it another try (his intentions aren’t quite as monogamous as mine), but it did make me realize how easily I could fall for him. ” off the rooftop, step back from your old feelings and try to start new. Not only do you not want to start the “love” part of a new relationship with an old lover right away, but you also want to take everything else slow. If there’s one universal aspect to any relationship it’s that men and women love to share their problems with friends and family.

Just another hard working mom who loves her kid, loves to write, can’t cook, and has a thing for tentacles!I’m one of those people who rarely give second chances.In my opinion, if it didn’t work the first time why bother trying a second?
