Redating an ex boyfriend
But staying in contact with your ex following a breakup? By remaining in each other’s lives, you run the risk of a post-breakup rendezvous, holding onto feelings for your ex, and in general delaying your ability to heal and move on quickly (and without additional heartache). This is actually one of the single most important steps you can follow during your breakup recovery. No Online Ex-Bashing After a breakup, it’s only natural to feel some residual anger, resentment, bitterness, etc.
The following are some tips to help you avoid a post-breakup backslide into your ex’s arms, and instead ease you into your happily ever after future: Create new Boundaries Your best defense after a breakup? That means no phone calls, no e-mails, no texting, and definitely no late-night visits. That means it’s time to “ex-tricate” him or her from your life. You just have to create special new boundaries, only dealing with and talking to your ex when absolutely necessary about your common interests, i.e., the children, business, work. And in the era of social networking sites and You Tube, it’s all too easy to go online and spew in front of millions of readers/viewers. By going online and bashing your ex on your blog, via video diary, or to everyone in your social network, you are inviting bad breakup karma into your life.

My knee-jerk response was "Duh, who wouldn't be pissed?(The Frisky) -- Dear Wendy: I'm 33 years old and recently my high school sweetheart, Michael, who I dated for almost two years and lost my virginity to, found me on Facebook.After much thought, I finally hit the accept button to his friend request.When I tell people about this situation, everyone thinks what she is doing is wrong. They say I shouldn't have a problem with it since I've been happily married for 13 years and that it was over a decade ago when we were teenagers. I understand you'd be hurt that your sister is dating your high school sweetheart, but I find it more difficult to understand how you'd be upset with any female close to you dating any ex of yours, regardless of when you dated him, how serious you were, what the breakup was like, and what your feelings for him are now.Not every relationship is created equal, and you shouldn't apply some silly "code" to all of them as if they are.
