Getting my Boyfriend Back
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
My question is I want my boyfrind back and I want to know is there any way or do you have any ideas on how to get him to give me another chance?
I have to assume he's an ex-boyfriend if you want him back again? How long since you broke up? You really need to be sure this isn't just rebound-thinking and it is serious. Are you sure you remember realistically the things that went wrong, and that you now have ways to handle them differently? Don't just concentrate on the good things you miss. Remember the ENTIRE situation because that's what you'll be dealing with again.
Then, sit down with him somewhere quiet and let both of you talk about your hopes and fears. Be completely honest and truthful - that's the basis of any relationship. If you can't be honest at this critical point, then the relationship might be past saving. Agree together on the things that you both worry about. Even if you don't personally agree with an item, at least agree that it bothers *him*. Then work, together, on a way to address the issues.
If you both go into the relationship again with a commitment to work together on issues, and with knowledge of what issues are key to work on, then it can be even better than before!
