Boyfriends are NOT recyclable

Recycling may be great for the environment but it can do major damage on your love life.  Against our better judgments, we sometimes return to old flames and rekindle a romance.  Sometimes it’s for nostalgia’s sake, other times it’s out of loneliness.  A lot of people seriously consider it for the sake of the children.

I wish I could say that it worked for me but it hasn’t, ever. I tried.  Like, three times…with the same guy.  Yeah no, I don’t recommend it at all. Maybe I’m in the minority, though.  Is it ever a good idea to reunite with someone from your past? Isn’t it so so tempting to do so?  Especially when old feelings haven’t completely faded away; or worse they come barreling towards you after a random sighting.

Have you ever gotten back together with a former wife/husband/ or former significant other? If so, how did it work out?  What drew you back to the person?

How long does it usually take before you remember the exact reason you two broke up the first time? In my case, my ex would come back around and pursue me, claiming to have changed.  He said all the right things that I wanted him to say before we broke up.  It wasn’t long before we were back to the same arguments and personality clashes that broke us up.

Would you ever try to win someone back? Do you think someone from your past could show up and convince you to give it another go? What is the statue of limitations on old relationships? More importantly, who can I petition to get it shortened!!?

my coworker just asked when is cheating cheating. i said only when you’re married. otherwise you’re not commited or obligated. you should be man or woman enough to move on, taking the risks of greener grass or the appearance.
