It does not matter what it will take to accomplish this, you want to do it.
I have been through many relationships, and now that I am older I am much more knowledgeable on the subject.
I have asked myself how to save my relationship and have learned the do's and don'ts that come with it.
The answer on how to keep a relationship healthy has taken me years to discover.
Working on you first is the most important part before you even attempt to get your ex back.
You need to let all that extra baggage go.
Get rid of all that anger and heartache that has been associated with your relationship.
You will not be able to get your ex back if you have all these emotions still flying around.
Do not let anything stand in your way of accomplishing this task and make sure your head is clear.
Get yourself prepared no matter what it might take.
Anything to release that anger, like maybe going to a gym and punching a bag, running on a treadmill, or even just getting out there and shopping.
Once your head is clear and your anger has gone, next is the time for you to sit down figure out what you really want to do.
Look to see if you are really just lonely and looking for this person to fix this problem.
Maybe you were just in an abusive relationship.
Consider all the possibilities before you make your final decision.
Ask yourself if to save my relationship is really the right path for me to take.
Next, contact your ex and arrange to talk with them.
This is just a meeting and not a date.
Let them know that you wish to sit with them and talk about what went wrong and how a possible fix can be possible.
Get up and leave after you have discussed what went wrong and some possible compromises that can occur.
Seeming desperate or needy is the last thing that you want at this point.
