You broke up with an ex-partner for what may have seemed like a good reason, but now you’re starting to have some serious breakup-remorse. The bad thing is, they’ve already moved on to someone “better,” but you’re not ready to walk away.

Is it appropriate to pursue an ex-partner even though they’re in another relationship? Does the pursuit make you look desperate or is the quest for “the one” endearing?

We want to hear from you. Share your thoughts and comments below.
