    Is it a good idea to have a second chance with your ex?

    When relationship fails the first time around, is it a good idea to try it the second time around if both are willing to give it a second try? How can you say if it is not worth another try?

    It really depends on the cause of the breakup, like cheating, not giving enough attention, abusive, or just not bringing anything to the table

    Only the two people involved can determine if it is worth their time to try it again. Personally speaking I believe when it comes to love you give your all and if it doesn't work out then (there is nothing left for you to do different a second time). After all your best is your best.
    The next thing to consider is why the relationship ended in the first place. What has transpired that will "make things different" a second time around. We are who we are. If no one has made a 180 degree change then odds are the same issues will arise again.
    Generally speaking an ex is an ex for a reason and it's usually a (good reason). With over 7 billion people on the planet I don't see too many reasons to revisit the past. Your future lies ahead of you and not behind you. - One man's opinion! :-)

    The dynamics of being in love has biological rules.
    Rule one: you cannot fall in love again with the same person unless you have completely fellen out of love and gave up on the whole thing.
    Rule Two: You might still feel like family or friends, and want to help each other, but that's different that being excited to see someone.
    Rule Three: Experts like me should be ignored. It's more fun to just go for it and see what happens next ... heaven or hell!

    i simply can not say what is best for you......or what will work in your best interest............

    I can only tell you............that if you fail me, discard me, disrespect  me once...........the deal is sealed.

    I hope for the ability to forgive and to wish you well, causing you no future harm......but, no, I do not think that I could ever trust you  or hold you as my confidant again.

    If both parties want to try again then the answer is Yes. Obviously they would have discussed the rights and wrongs of their previous relationship and they will have learned of the reasons for the failure. Everybody deserves a second chance.
