Your mind will still be battling with the demons of the past that lead to the breakup in the first place. You’re still going to have doubts in the back of your mind. The only thing to do is resolve to stand by the commitment you’ve made and to give it your all. It’s a bit harsh on the pallet to inform your social circle the devil incarnate, the man you f*cking despise is now your BAE again. You cringe at the thought of a haughty, “Don’t say I didn’t tell you so when you break up again.” You just avoid the topic of BAE at all cost. They are never going to get behind this decision because they know it is probably the worst decision you could be making.
It may have seemed in your best interest to delete every photo off of Facebook and to unfollow him on Twitter and Instagram upon your breakup, but now that you’re back together, you have to do the dreaded “re-add” dance. They will all claim they won’t be there when you come running for a second time. You have to think about why this is happening in the first place. Is it because you want to be with him, or is it because you don’t want to be alone?

I’m not sure.] What’s great about the friendship is that I know it exists only because we’ve bridged the rift that caused the romantic love to fall apart and paved the way for platonic love. For example, when I was head over heels for someone who was being attentive and charming — who introduced me as his “girlfriend” before we’d even dated a week — he warned that this guy seemed in a hurry to get married and wasn’t taking time to get to know me.
You’re willing to put up with all of the bullsh*t if it means getting to be together.
You’d rather deal with an endless hailstorm of rude remarks from your friends and memories from the past if it means you don’t have to live without him.
The period between then and now is the most awkward to breach.
Yet getting back together after a rough breakup comes with its own group of challenges.
No one in your support group is going to be ecstatic you’ve forgone his or her advice and are taking back a guy he or she watched you cry over. Is he the one for me or am I just terrified of ending up alone? Without further adieu, here are 16 struggles of getting back together with your ex boyfriend: It’s definitely difficult to break this kind of news to every single person you know (and some you’re just barely acquainted with).
He helped me see that I needed to be open to possibility rather than assume the worst. My ex has also brought to my attention, in a non-confrontational way, behaviors that had hurt each of us in the past.
