Sometimes a relationship just doesn’t work out.

No matter how much effort is put into it, it just wasn’t meant to be. Now some people may get this but others will still hold on to hopes of a possible reunion after a break up.

Sad thing about being in such a situation is that it’s not always healthy to linger waiting for someone that may never come back to you.

Here are five great reasons why you shouldn’t get back with your ex.

1.You can’t solve the previous issues you had that caused the breakup

So, you decide to try and make it work with your ex. Only problem is you can’t get past what caused the breakup in the first place. You’re just drawn to other for other reasons; maybe the sex was amazing or the two of you are really amazing friends but can’t make the romantic side work.

It’s best to just leave it alone. At least there is a friendship there.

2.They were abusive

If your ex was abusive in any way; either physically or emotionally, just stay away. Once you get out, stay out.

3.Your ex sucked when the two of you were in a relationship

They didn’t treat you right. They cheated on you. They were the perfect definition of the worst boyfriend/girlfriend.

This is not to say that people cannot change, of course they can but sometimes it’s best to forgive and move on instead of backtracking.

4.They are only coming back for a reason

Beware of leeches just trying to suck the life out of you. They caught wind of how good you are doing in life and suddenly got an epiphany that the two of you were meant to be together. Keep in mind that they might have been confessing their love for someone else the week before reaching out to you. Red flag.

5.They’ve moved on and they tell you that they have

Stop beating a dead horse. If it’s over, it’s over. Move on.
