Breakups are hard, but letting go of someone you’re meant to be with is even harder! We’ve all been there— the tears, the drama, the pain. You never really know what to do with yourself when your relationship comes to an end.
But what if I told you that it might not be the end of the world after all? What if there was a way to get back together with your ex? Believe it or not, there are actually 10 signs that you should consider getting back together! Keep reading to find out more!
1. You still have obvious feelings for each other
It’s one thing to miss your ex and it’s another to still have obvious feelings for them. If you find yourself constantly thinking about your ex, wondering what they’re doing and how they’re doing, then it’s a sign that you’ve still got some strong feelings for them.
If you still have feelings for each other, then it’s a good sign that you’re meant to be together. It simply means you’re not ready to move on from them yet. This sign becomes even more significant if they feel the same way. Confront them without aggression and see how things will work out!
2. You talk about getting back together… a lot
If you and your ex are constantly talking about getting back together, then it’s a sign that you both are still interested in rekindling your relationship. This is especially true if those conversations happen frequently and spontaneously.
This means you’re still friends and in a good place with them if you’re able to hang out and talk about getting back together! Take it slow at this point and learn to get back into a relationship in a much more loving pace.
3. You haven’t moved on
If you haven’t moved on from your break-up, it’s a sign that you and your ex are meant to be together. This is especially true if you’ve been single for a while and haven’t been able to find anyone that you’re interested in.
Even if you’ve tried dating other people and have done your best to move forward. If the thought of being with your ex still brings peace to you, then, by all means, reach out to them. They could truly be the one you should end up with.
4. You still do things together
If you and your ex still do things together, whether it’s going out to eat or taking walks in the park, it’s a sign that you’re not quite ready to let go of each other just yet. Even if you’re hanging out as friends, being able to do platonic activities together can mean you’re meant to be. We get it! There’s just so much chemistry between you both that it’s hard to truly cut them off.
If you can still be friends after a breakup, it can mean they’re your soulmate—your life partner. Try to discuss rekindling a romantic relationship if you feel this way.
5. You have great chemistry
Speaking of chemistry, If you have great chemistry with your ex, then it’s a sign that there’s still a strong connection between the two of you. This is something that doesn’t just go away after a break-up.
Both of you could be trying really hard to keep your friendship platonic, but underneath all that, it’s meant to be romantic! This only means you and your ex should try patching things up.
6. You share the same interests
If you and your ex share the same interests, then it’s a sign that you have a lot in common and that you’re compatible with each other. This is something that can be a strong foundation for a relationship.
Compatibility is a very strong indicator of a stable relationship. Whether it’s your hobbies, habits, values, or other life factors, it means you can’t just get rid of each other so easily. Of course, you don’t have to be like two peas in a pod. Sharing the same interests only means that you are already familiar with each other through those interests.
7. You’re always drawn back to each other
If you find yourself constantly drawn back to your ex, even after trying to move on, it’s a sign that they could be “the one”. This is because there’s still a strong connection between the two of you. That there could be other parts of your relationship that haven’t fully bloomed yet. And that means, both of you still have plenty of space to explore each other!
If that’s not an obvious sign you’re meant to be together, then I don’t know what is!
8. You have a lot of history together
If you and your ex have a lot of history together, whether it’s good or bad, it’s a sign that you’re meant to be together. This is because you have a strong connection and you know each other very well. This also means that you’ve gone through phases with each other.
You’ve already seen each other’s good parts and, most especially, bad parts! The constant in this is that you’ve managed to stay in contact. So there’s an underlying premise there that you already accept each other for who you are.
9. You miss them
If you find yourself missing your ex, even though it’s been a while since the break-up, it’s a sign that you’re meant to be. If you didn’t love them at all, and vice versa, you wouldn’t be missing them so badly.
Take missing them as a sign that there could be more potential in the relationship if you try again! This is because you still have strong feelings for them and want to be with them again.
10. You can’t imagine your life without them
If you can’t imagine your life without your ex, then it’s a sign that they’re still a big part of your life. Imagining a future with your ex is one major sign you are meant to be. This is because they’ve made a significant impact on your life and they mean a lot to you.
To be able to imagine a future with someone most likely means that you are already invested. That you are truly in love (among other things). Now, if it was someone else in your future daydreams, then it means they’re not the one.
Whether you’re happily single or on the search for “the one,” it can be helpful to know which signs mean your ex is definitely someone worth giving a second chance. If you still have feelings for your ex, or if there are some definite signs that they’re meant for you, don’t be afraid to reach out and see what might be possible.
