What You Can Learn From Your Ex

There’s a saying in life that you live and learn. Well, this is entirely true, as most of us reading this can attest. However, you can make that saying a little more accurate by using dating as an example. There’s never a better opportunity to learn in your life than with an ex boyfriend or girlfriend.

If you’re entering into the dating sites game in order to meet someone new, then you’ll probably be looking around for some useful information. If you’ve been in a relationship before, then you already have some great info to work from.

What can you learn from your exes and use on dating sites to meet someone new?

How to blend
A big part of dating, whether it’s through dating sites or out there in the real world, is about two people having to meet in the middle, so to speak, in order to become one organic part – a couple. For this, you have to blend, you have to meld well. Being in any relationship is a learning opportunity here. You already know how—or maybe how not—to approach this blending. It’s something you learned from your ex.

How to work the fight/flight
Every couple fights, that’s just a part of relationships. And every couple treads lightly at times. Being in a previous relationship, you know when fights got too heated and when it was time to stand up for yourself. Use this information wisely going forward. The idea is to not fall into the same traps that spelled disaster in your last relationship.

How to recognize talent
What was it about your partner that made you fall for them? Can you even remember at this point? Well, it may be something that you won’t have to remember. Being in previous relationships should help you to instantly recognize chemistry and compatibility when you see it. This is something else that your ex gave you that you weren’t even aware of. Something you can definitely put to use on dating sites.
