Advice from Melissa: Is it OK to take a second chance on your ex-boyfriend?
My ex-boyfriend and I have started talking again, and I am debating getting back together. I miss him terribly, but the reasons I left are still valid. What should I do?
Dear 2nd Chancer,
If the reasons you left haven’t changed, then you need to be honest with yourself about how important they really are to you. If they are eventually going to cause another wedge between you, chances are this won’t end well. If you can look past and accept those reasons or discuss a course of action together to help them to change — if they are changeable things — then maybe you guys have a chance; otherwise I don’t see this ending well.
