If you can honestly say, I’m still in love with my ex, there is a very good chance that your ex might still love you too, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good idea to try to get back together, first, you broke up for a reason, even if you didn’t want to break up and the break off was entirely your ex’s doing.
If the break up was mutual and now you are having a hard time because you feel like you are still in love, and you think that your ex should be there with you, then it’s even more important that you examine why you agreed to the break up in the first place.
Yes, there is a chance that a mutual split was a mistake, but if you really look back at the reasons you both had for calling a halt to the relationship, you might find that is better to love your ex from afar and work through the sadness rather than try to rekindle the romance, you might say I’m still in love; my ex even wants to get back together, while this might make you feel very hopeful that the two of you might be able to work things out and live happily ever after, don’t be fooled into thinking that it will be easy, the reasons you broke up might still be there, if you get back together, what will change? Your relationship might go along well for a while because you are both so happy to be back together.
If you broke up thinking, you are still in love with your ex, and he or she thought the same so you got back together, you will go through a honeymoon period just as you did when you were a new couple, you will both feel like you saved the relationship and kept each other from making a horrible mistake, but that feel-good honeymoon period will wear off eventually, and then what will you do? How are you going to prevent the problems that caused you to break up in the first place from coming back and making you want to part ways again? Couples counseling is a good option, if you think, you are still in love with your ex, and want him or her back, then consider counseling to keep old problems from splitting you up again later.
