2. Don’t pursue them

When they get in touch with you again, the best thing to do is to try and take a step back, no matter how excited you are. Don’t be the one to chase them or make it clear you’ll take them back right away.

3. Remember the breakup

Keep in mind that you broke up for a reason. So if things did not work out the first time, know that they may not work out this time either.

4. Seek advice from friends and family

Talk to your closest ones about what happened. They will be able to give an honest opinion about it and be more objective. After all, they were there while you were grieving over your ex.
