5 reasons people are tempted to stay in touch with their exes

Though breakups are trending in today's world but it really gets hard to say goodbye to someone with whom you have shared feelings, dreams, secrets, bed or even an apartment. Just because it didn’t work out between you two does not mean that love and care you had for each other won’t endure. Whether the breakup was mutual or one-sided, it’s never easy to move on. Somewhere you want to hold onto that relationship in some capacity, and it is completely understandable. Your ex is your ex for a reason but he/she has been an important part of your life for a significant amount of time. You both have together shared so many beautiful moments and spent so much time making the relationship all the more beautiful and memorable. But post your breakup, (even if you are the one to break things off) all these memories will keep haunting you. You always thought when you would say someone that you don’t want to date them any longer, that should be it, right? But what you did not know was that sometimes even after a traumatic breakup, the salve known as time can strip resentment and anger from our emotional equation, rekindling all kinds of emotions - from the platonic to the romantic, and back again. It is obvious and extremely tempting to get back with an ex because a known devil is better than an unknown. Research says no two exes can ever stay friends without one being emotionally used by the other but many former couples, whether dating partners or spouses, try to remain friends after a break-up, and some are able to manage this transition successfully. Here are five legit reasons why people decide to stay in touch with their exes:
