Sometime late last year, my ex and I worked up the nerve to become friends again. We had been broken up for two years and decided that we could definitely be friends. And then show each other silly videos on YouTube…and then play each other our new favorite songs. We would find ways to continue spending time with each other without delving into the potentially disastrous territory of admitting that maybe, just maybe, there were some residual romantic feelings worth exploring.

Months later, after one of these prolonged hang outs, we finally addressed the elephant in the room and started dating again. Dating an ex can be insanely tricky. If you are considering seriously dating an ex, here are some things to keep in mind. Dating an ex has its perks: you know what side of the bed they prefer, their favorite pump up music, and all of the little quirks and habits that made you fall for them in the first place.

In your time apart, your ex could have done a multitude of really cool things, like contemplating a new career path, getting really into meditation or become the biggest Chicago Bulls fan in the world. This is someone you have been intimate with in the past, and it may be tempting to have your second date on the couch binge watching Game of Thrones and ordering in Indian food. Dress up for dates. If you guys had a fairly horrible break-up, the idea of bringing it up when you are in the fun stage of dating may seem like the least appealing idea ever.

Guilt trips about past relationship failures will tank a new redo relationship fast, but being open and honest about what went wrong will help prevent history from repeating itself. As were you. Unless you are warning them that a person you dated is still in your social group or that you have remained friends, getting into details could lead to unwarranted jealousy and trust issues. Once things become a little more official, friends and family may feel the need to remind you of all the terrible things that this person put you through. Remember that they are doing this out of genuine care for you.

It can be very easy to fall back into a relationship with an ex-partner, so be sure this is something you WANT and not something you are doing out of loneliness or because you simply want to be dating someone. Really ask yourself why you want to be with this person: have they changed in a positive way since the last time? Have you? Do your long term goals line up? Does this person seem to be on the same as you as to where the relationship is going?

Taking a personal inventory can be daunting, but it will help you determine whether or not this second round is for real. Sure, sometimes dating an ex is a giant mistake, but in my experience if you approach it maturely and honestly, it can be all sorts of wonderful.
