Sometimes when a woman isn’t in a relationship she may get lonely or want to have her “needs” met. She may decide to recycle an old flame to fill the void. She may use him just for sex. Most men will accept the offer. They won’t let on, but they may feel you are desperate or that you are not over him. There was a reason why you broke up with him in the first place. The fear of someone new or the unknown, may cause a woman to go back to whom she is familiar, even though it is not who is best for her. Deep down women know the relationship isn’t going to be long-term, but she will deal with it for now until someone else comes along. She will see it as a safe option, since it will be someone she knows instead of a stranger.
Women have the tendency to look back on what could have been. She may want to forget the bad things and choose to hold on to the good times. Her past lover may have been great in bed, but that’s probably where it ends. Often times comparing lovers can cause a woman to long for an ex, even if it’s just sexually.
If the relationship didn’t work out the first time, recycling him probably won’t work the second time around. Permanently delete him from your “heart” drive. If you can’t bring yourself to do that, then just keep your old flame in your memory as a fantasy, nothing more. People don’t change unless they want to, or see the need to change. If you will accept them as they are, then nothing will be different from in the past.
Leave him in your past, everyone deserves a chance at finding real love.
