It’s hard to pick yourself back up after heartbreak, and the more rejection you experience, the harder it may be to believe that you will be able to find the right person and relationship for you.
A study in the United States found that people who rekindled youthful romances at least five years after they had split up had a 76 per cent chance of staying together, compared with a 40 per cent chance of successful marriage in the rest of the population.Nancy Kalish, a psychologist and the author of "Lost & Found Lovers: Facts and Fantasies of Rekindled Romances," says reconnecting with your lost love is probably a bad idea.(Tom Le Gro/The Washington Post) Technology has reshaped our love life.Some 55 per cent chose to reunite with someone they loved when they were 17 or younger - their first love - and 29 per cent chose a former sweetheart from late adolescence.The researchers found the most common reason for the initial romance breaking up was parental disapproval, accounting for 25 per cent of cases.I had to coach a close friend through a heartbreak, but in the end, he ended up coaching me.Teaching me a valuable lesson by the way he handled this.In today’s online dating world, it is easy to meet many potential mates, but that makes it just as easy to experience letdowns and heartbreak when a relationship doesn’t work out.It can also feel like our dating culture is increasingly superficial, squashing our dreams of finding meaningful and committed connections.
