This Week's Topic: Does my relationship deserve a second chance?
They say the dating "game" is rough; the older you become, the harder it is to trust, there's the baggage and the "other stuff." Well folks, sorry to say but the older you become, the more baggage you just may carry. So the question is, because you are familiar with an ex, would you consider giving him/her a second chance at a relationship? We know, they say an ex is an ex for a reason, but could it be that the timing just could have been wrong? Some folk simply DO NOT need to repeat, but others may need to take the leap of faith.
Before going into anything, whether old or new, you need to know if it is worth it. You also need to ask yourself, what was the cause of the breakup. Did they cheat, cheat and try to hide it? In that, would getting back with them only reinforce that behavior and what lesson was learned? Can a person really change? How about those emotions? Were they emotional or emotionless?

Whether you believe it or not, something lies deep within that makes one do what they do.
