I was reading this article the other day about people reaching out to their ex’s during this pandemic. The article was discussing whether it is a good idea or not, so I thought I would voice my opinion on this topic. My personal opinion is that it is a bad idea to reach out to your ex during this pandemic. Everybody is in a vulnerable state during these stressful times. There is a saying that states, “the person is your ex for a reason.” You really need to remember what the reasons were behind you and your ex breaking up in the first place. The core reasons for you splitting up have not changed just because the world is in turmoil. Once the pandemic calms down and you have a sense of normalcy again, those reasons will resurface. Even if you just want to have somebody to talk to and you have no intentions of rekindling the relationship, you could be sending the wrong message to your ex. I have found that when people break up there is always one person who still has feeling for the other one. Your ex will most likely miscontrue your intentions and you will find yourself in a big mess. This pandemic can be very lonely at times, but it is definitely not the right time to rekindle an old flame. Nobody is thinking clearly or rationally and that only leads to disaster. Resist the urge to reconnect with your ex during this time, by starting a new project or learning a new hobby. You won’t regret it.
