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.
If you and your ex were apart for some time and you know that you both had the chance to see other people, you are not allowed to ask questions.
Rule number two in dating your ex: It’s none of your business what happened when you were apart.
But, every once in a while I’ve been known to give it a go with an old flame, and it’s usually worth the second chance.
You should never start a sentence with the words, “Remember that time when….” Leave the past behind you and don’t talk about old (bad) memories.
You know how they feel when you make love, you know their favorite television show and what they like to snack on in the middle of the night.
Giving it a second chance, though, requires you to be braver than you are when you’re dating someone new.
