10 Reasons Why An Ex Should Stay An Ex ....


Registered Member
1. Their quirks are no longer adorable—they're annoying.
Back then, it was kind of cute that they was incapable of being on time; now it's a major pain in the backside. You used to aww at the way they ate there food, but these days it just grosses you out. And their love for comic books, while once sweet and geekish, is just further evidence of their immaturity. These things don't get any cuter with time, sister.

2. The fights are the same.
They still thinks you're a nag. You can't stand that they gets so sloppy drunk. They thinks you overreact to every little thing, while you find their aloofness during an argument to be downright cruel. Often couples who are considering a reconciliation focus only on the good times; but what about the many, many times you wanted to kill each other. If you're fighting over the same crap—or the stuff that you fought over are still issues—move on.

3. The physical attraction just isn't there.
To a certain degree, don't we all still kind of love our exes? But that doesn't mean we're still turned on by them. Look, desire changes over the course of a relationship, but if you look at your ex and nothing happens below the belt and you can relate to one or all of the other reasons on this list, go put your cooter to work with someone else.

4. Other options have got your attention.
Sure you still care about your ex. But have you developed crushes on others? Been dating or have an urge to keep dating other people? Don't put your ex through a reunion if you're still sifting through your other options.

5. One of the main issues is insurmountable.
There are some things people can agree to change about them for the sake of a relationship. Couples can work out a compromise so that both parties are satisfied. But there are some issues that cannot be talked through or ignored in perpetuity; they don't want kids, you do. You're looking for someone who intellectually challenges you, they're a dumb ass. This ship has sailed, darlin.

7. You're already totally over him.
Emotionally you've moved on. Starting over with him would be like re-watching a movie you've already seen, that you know the ending to, and that you have no real interest in seeing twice. Why? Just because? Did you watch "Battlefield Earth" for a second time, just because? No. No you didn't.

8. You f**ked someone else in the interim.
And it was better. Don't lie. It was, wasn't it?

9. Your friends and family hate him.
Post breakup, you talked mad s**t about the horrible things they did, and as a result, no one would respect you for taking him back. This is a two part lesson: if there's a chance that things are not over for good, be mindful of what dirty laundry you air to your loved ones. You can forgive and forget, but maybe they can't.

10. Because getting back together is always a bad idea.
Well, 99 percent of the time is it. These are real statistics, people. Don't get at me for speaking the truth using hard facts.

MedicineShows theys thinks theys is not verys good at writing. Not trying to troll, but it's very hard to relate to something that is written so poorly.

Exes are exes for a reason. No point in reminiscing, it's over. You don't need a list to replace common sense.

You think you miss your ex but you just miss having a boyfriend/girlfriend - it doesn't have to be him/her.

You think there's only one reason why you're not together and if you fix that, things will be all ok. But it was simply what triggered the break up. A lot of things have been going wrong way before that and going back to the relationship you'd have to face those again.


The Rock is cooking atm..
I went through the same thing about a year ago, when me and my ex broke up. I think it's more the companionship that you miss, and being together, rather than the person at times. Well that's from my perspective, takes time, but a list seems a bit silly lol

Yea the list is a bit silly but I think its meant to be that way.

A ex is a ex for a reason, why put yourself through whatever caused you to break up again. The same problems will still be there. Its possible they may change temporarily but it generally won't last.

I think people are still in love with their ex is the reason they want back with them. However loving someone isn't always enough.

Definitely true! When you get back with your ex, someone will still carry the baggage from the relationship. All those bad memories and fights will come back not once but several times. So the fight will start up again and few long months later, both of you will going back to where they have started, being broken again.
