You have confidence that the relationship will work. You and your ex can work together to iron out any differences that you may have. You have genuine respect for each other. Neither of you is about disrespecting the other in any way. Be able to be affectionate toward your ex again. This is one of the main parts of getting back together. There has to be genuine love and care for each other. Don’t just get back together because of the intimacy and the lovemaking that you miss so much. Remove any jealousy or envy from your system. You nor your ex can have a satisfying and productive relationship if one or both parties are insecure and can’t trust each other. Don’t expect your ex to be something that they’re not. Accept them for who they are.
