If you've ever broken up with your partner, then got back together with them, did it work out or not?

No, don't bother. I got back with my partner and regret it as he blames me for the breakup when in reality it was him who pushed me too it and to be honest it's just crap so don't bother. An ex is an ex for a reason

What issues led to the breakup, and have they been resolved?

If not, then don't bother.

I think it depends why you broke up in the first place.
My DP broke up quite a bit.
Both just out of marriages.
Rebound.
Not ready etc.....
It's worked out now though but it took a while before we were both really ready.

I went back to an ex because I felt sorry for him.

It was really stupid and the relationship limped on for another couple of years with us both becoming more and more resentful. We were really just not suited.

I am leaning towards a shit idea. He has been a shit. I was less than perfect - some alcohol issues and things that I've dealt with. So I feel like if we got back together, he'd be happy as Larry as I've dealt with my issues - but I would be unhappy if he was unwilling to deal with his.

But I really really miss him, and I miss being in a family, and in a relationship. So I think possibly we could take it slow and see how things go? Things might not work out, but I keep thinking about if things end up working out perfectly, forever. Though I don't even know where his head is tbh so this is all moot ATM. Just having a think about my feelings. Which are all over the place confused
