Talk to your friends
So you've accepted that the relationship is over and you're feeling fit and healthy, but are you ready to start talking to your ex yet? Are you ready to reignite the relationship?
You'll probably move through a few stages when you have a break up. You'll think that they were a monster, then you'll wonder why you weren't good enough, and finally you will be able to look back at the relationship and evaluate it properly.
You need to be at this final stage before you approach your ex.
It can be pretty hard to tell if you've reached it, so the best thing to do is ask your friends and family.
Ask them if they feel like you are still thinking and talking about him the whole time. "You have to want to not need this person," says Kuldeep.
