Let’s say you really sabotaged something a really good relationship and you have major regrets. You’ve grown up and learned your lesson and now you are convinced you want another chance with your ex. How would you get them back?
Such is the dilemma of one of our dear readers, “Jen.” I have told her that sometimes it’s best to charge one to the “personal growth” game and learn your lesson for the next one. She is adamant that the one that got away is the best person for her. So I agreed to petition you creative romantic types: How do you campaign to get your ex back?
Background: Jen dated “Alex” for approximately eight months. After they had “the talk” around month 6 agreeing to be exclusive, Jen failed to stop the other suitors from pursuing her. She didn’t confess, she got caught. He’s still angry and won’t take her calls. What should she do next?
Do you think that you can recover from a bad mistake when your relationship is new and still fragile? Would you consider “fighting” for the relationship and try to make amends?
Is it harder for men to look past this sort of thing?
Have you ever taken your ex back? Did it turn out well or do you think it would have been better to let sleeping dogs lie?
When you are trying to get back in good graces, would you go the “over the top” gesture route? Would you play on their sympathies? Do you think people deserve second chances?
