I think we can all agree that our ex's are our ex's for a reason. Unlike many people I know, I have never had a really bad break up with a woman I've had a long term relationship with. Things come up, people's idea of what they want their life to be can change, and so you go your seperate ways. I have a few ex's I'd love to be with again, one in particular. She wanted to get married and have children. At the time I had been divorced for a few years and had a baby boy. I did not want to start another family, so, as much as I loved this woman, I had to let her go after five years because I didn't want to be the source of resentment down the road for not giving her kids. We still talk all the time. She's married, two dogs and no kids. Our conversations nowadays are strictly on a platonic level, as I would never want to do anything to break up her marriage, and I'm sure she wouldn't either. I like to live my life with no regrets, and other than her, I don't really have any. If I had to do it over again, knowing what I know now, I would have gladly married her and had children with her. There are only so many people that come into our lives that we love in that way, and who love us back equally. Now she's gone, I'm single, and life goes on. So while it would seem like a logical conclusion that most of us would not go back to our ex's, there are certainly exceptions.
Rescue1 you made me laugh outloud while reading this. anyway, I wouldnt take my ex back now, its been ten yrs since I divorced him. I feel its always best to move on and cherish the old good memories ...make new positive ones...ok now, any single nice bikers our there between 45and 59 ? LOL
Met someone at Biketoberfest last year, had a great time there. Then he started calling me (he was in Kentucky, I am in Florida). January 1st he moved down here, lasted til Valentines Day, he went back to Kentucky. Really hurt at first, then he started calling me, he wanted to come back. So I decided to give him another chance, That was May, well 7/31 he headed back to Kentucky. Morale of this story, if it isn't good the first time it won't be any better the 2nd time.....:)
Have you ever overcooked a steak? Throwing it back on the grill for another round isn't going to fix it. I've become much more forgiving as I've aged, but there is a line and once it's crossed, there's no going back. Stick a fork in her... she's done.

Cmon now, you brought too many variables into that post to tell if it was fun you were talkin about or torture. Like, who's doin the bacon rubbin? Where are they rubbin it? And, for how long? Oh yeah, and do those badgers know how vicious I could get for just the right kind of bacon rubdown?
this is really one of those damned if you do damned if you don't situations. either you keep stepping and look back wondering if the choice was right or go back and get it emblazed in your memory why you left in the first place.

We fell hard and we fell fast. Yes, it was a long distance relationship, so some might say it was doomed from the start. He flew me to see him in July and we had a great time, we made plans for him to come and visit me next. Well, he was supposed to have arrived last night, instead I got that dreaded ph8ne call, the one that you can tell by the sound of his voice that it isn't gonna be pretty. Bottom line is, his exwife had started calling, seems the kids (her kids) are out of the house and now she's lonely and wants him back. He says he is still in love with her and chose her instead of pursuing me. OUCH!!! Needless to say, I cried but maintained my dignity, told him goodbye and cried myself to sleep. Today was pretty rough, but I'll be fine. I really thought I had found someone special (well, he found me)Just goes to show, you never can tell. Thanks everyone for listening, just had to get this off my chest and wanted some feedback.
There are others. If it was meant to be you would still be with him. Get over it. It was only 5 months. And, evidently you were just a rebound with him. I don't mean to be cruel but it is true.
as glib as i try to be i am a hopless romantic. i have a hard time acceptin love doesn't conquer all. in ealier years i wound up with a rule no seconds to protect against such obivous disappointment. now that i'm old (not really wiser) i have again broken my rule. the only positive i can see is that getting this badly burnt i'll steer clear of this one (then agin they call me DUMBASS for a reason) anyay at least if i manage to walk this time there won't be any looking back with what ifs
I would NOT go back with my X !!! Been there .. done that so to speak. I my opinion people who do this are just taking the easy way out. A QUICK fit for their current loneliness. It's a "knee jerk" reaction. These newly re-formed relationships usually fail again for the SAME reasons they did the first time around. SO DON'T FEEL BAD ABOUT IT. IT'S HIS PROBLEM NOT YOURS. Move on and find yourself a guy who KNOWS what he wants. Looks like this guy didn't ...
