I broke up with my girlfriend six months ago but now I miss her and really want her back. When we met for the first time after six months last week she accepted my invitation for a date. It’s funny how I am finding myself new to the whole situation, it feels like the first time we are going to be on a date and it’s not easy for me. How should I go about it and make sure this time we get it right? – Tee0ne
Getting back together after a fight or break up always brings a nice feeling. It is, however, important to recall the reasons why you broke up the first time – and consider how you will solve them to avoid another separation in future.
Talk your problems through, apologise to each other and avoid disappointments. Once you and your partner make agreements of what changes will be made and how you will improve your relationship, stick to them! If you do not respect and follow the new agreements, you will find yourselves arguing about the same issues all over again.
Take it one step at a time. Obviously the two of you agreed to get back together because you wish to give your relationship another chance. You both are willing to work at it, so do not feel the need to rush into things.
Making up after a long separation takes sensitivity. You are starting things up again and practically starting from scratch. Talk about what happened, why you broke up and why you both feel making up was the right decision. Go out on dates and get to know each other again. Do something romantic for one another as much as you can, to rekindle the feelings and reasons you fell in love in the first place. Good Luck. – GraceyPost published in: Lifestyle
