Is Hooking Up with an Ex a Good Idea?

Smoldering Woman in Red

Have you ever hooked up with an ex? I can’t be the only one. And I might do it again… After a recent breakup, I began flipping through my Rolodex of past lovers, wondering if there was anything (I mean anyone!) to be had. I wouldn’t be so horny, except that my bye-bye-boyfriend was amazing in bed. As great as great sex is, it can’t always save a relationship… sigh.

So my next move is to send out a few feeler messages or texts. I know, it sounds awful… or is it? I love dating sites, and going out to the bars can end in some spontaneous fun, but after a breakup, my energy levels are only so high. And some of my exes have pulled the same thing – some with success, some not.

If you’re thinking about hooking up with your ex, it’s best to consider the possible outcomes. I write these from experience and from friends who also “return home” when the land of loneliness becomes too much.

The Upside of Ex Hookups

  • You both know what each other likes
  • You both know what each other doesn’t like
  • You know it’s only about the sex
  • You’ll be reminded why the relationship didn’t work
  • You don’t have to do “the work” of meeting someone new

The Downside of Ex Hookups

  • You may have to relive bad memories
  • You could end up back together, repeating past mistakes
  • You may end up wanting more than they do
  • You may have regrets afterwards
  • You may realize the sex wasn’t as good as you remembered

If you think you can handle it, it’s worth a shot… especially if the breakup was amicable.
