They apologized and promised to change

For 51 percent of the participants, their ex admitting they were wrong with a promise of ‘things will be different this time round’ was all they need to get back with them.

Your ex being more open to commitment and being in it for the long haul could be the reason you get back with them.

More willing to let you into their life more

Things that they wouldn’t have been open sharing with you before, are suddenly open for discussion which can make anyone feel special again.
