Love can be rekindled, but it's different the second time around.
Take the dating process slowly, as if you were dating someone you’d never met before. Let the intimacy grow in the relationship just as it would if it were a new relationship. Don’t rush into moving in with one another or getting joint checking accounts.
Be clear on what expectations you do have of him or her and of your new relationship. One of the benefits of dating an ex is that the two of you did share good times before you started your new relationship.
Re-create some of the good times or trips you had together.
Talking about the good times can build your intimacy with one another and strengthen your relationship. If you are frustrated with your ex, tell him or her that you are frustrated and what it is that is frustrating you. You can’t assume that he or she knows what you are thinking or how you are feeling.
Communication contributes to a strong and healthy relationship. If he or she cheated on you, you cannot assume the same thing is happening again You have to be able to start the relationship over with a brand-new level of trust.
There is no point in dating your ex if you are going to focus on past problems during the present relationship.
"We all make mistakes." Nowhere is the cliché more apt than when it comes to relationships.
As a dating coach I've been privileged to help other women recognize and break free of self-defeating patterns and habits that have kept them from realizing the relationship of their dreams.
You just finished talking to your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend, and the two of you had a great conversation.
A flood of feelings and memories of good times with your ex came racing back to you.
