When the foundation of a connection is powerful, love can often stand the test of time even though you are not together as a couple. You have an undeniable chemistry that never seems to dissipate. The most important thing to think about if you are in a position to rekindle a romance with your Ex is to understand what the problems were that made you break up with them.
A great relationship is one where you are both there for each other, but you still have your own dreams, goals, and separate interests. Of course, you should always have each other’s back and support one another, but never give up who you are as a person for someone else.
When you shut down in a relationship it automatically shuts your partner out. They will eventually start to pull back because they are feeling a disconnect from you. This can cause all sorts of uncertainties and insecurities between you as a couple if it is ignored for a long period.
Some men and women have a tough time committing long term and would rather avoid any discussion on the subject. This leaves a lot of frustrated people trying to figure out whether to “wait around or move on” from their non-committal partner.
Take yourself out of the equation for a minute and think about his wife and kids. If this is destroying you right now, how do you think they will feel? You have given him 2 years of your love while she has said marriage vows and given him two beautiful children!
Relationships are about partnerships, but each person is an individual. A couple can be on very different paths, encountering various challenges along the way. If your partner opens up to you about a specific problem they’re having, or if they’re struggling with their health or well-being, be supportive.
