But how do you know if it’s worth it to try getting back with an ex or if it’s just a disaster waiting to happen?
Truthfully, you’ll never really know for sure unless you give it a shot.
Break ups are painful, and as much as it hurts, break ups also bring with it the hope of getting an ex back or meeting someone new to fill the void.
By "some time," I don't mean a few days or a week... I know that sounds like a long time, but here's my reasoning: it's normal to feel like you want your ex back immediately after a relationship ends. But if a month passes by and you still want to be with this person just as much as you did the day after the breakup, that means that maybe things just aren't finished between you two yet. You both need a good amount of time alone to figure things out on your own before deciding you want to get back together Source: Shutter Stock want and what's most important to you. Don't make these expectations too big, though (if they are, that's a sign maybe you guys shouldn't get back together).
It’s painful to think about it, but it’s also sadistically reassuring to know that you’re not the only one hurting inside. It feels good to know your ex still hurts and suffers, and thinks about you just as much as you’re thinking about them.

But later that night, I got to know that a friend of mine from out of town was trying to call me and couldn’t hear anything from my end. The next few days saw me jumping with ecstasy and hitting rock bottom with anger and pain.

And even though I’ve known that love can cause as much pain as it can give happiness, I’ve helplessly slipped into the puddle of love far too many times to count.
One of the questions that haunt anyone the most after a break up, especially when you’ve lost contact with your ex, is whether your ex is still in love with you. I checked out his blog several times and googled his name every few hours. I flirtishly said ‘hello’ for a few minutes each time and said goodbye before hanging up. This felt just as worse as the break up, I was reliving the pain every now and then with sporadic bursts of bliss. I was addicted to facebook, because there was no other way to hear from my ex.
