If your relationship didn't survive the fourth break-up/get-back-together sequence, what makes you think it will survive the fifth?

That is all.

Yeah, I don't get couples who do the make-up/break-up/make-up/break-up/make-up/ad infinitum thing. It makes me want to scream: ITS NOT WORKING!!!

I have a rule. You get one breakup/makeup with me. If you fuck it up (or if I fuck it up) the second try, it's over for good.

Why prolong the agony?

Well, and the ridiculous thing is that they're already having problems! Two days into it!

Well, as I've been there with the last fella, I know in theory we shouldn't have, and I know if we didn't work together it wouldn't have happened as I've never done it before, but we weren't mature enough to say no.

I think people do it because it's easier than saying goodbye, which it isn't, it's just prolonging the inevitable. Some people are too scared of being alone, being by themselves again. And we convince ourselves that it'll work. Just like right now I'm convincing myself I'll win Lotto any day now.

I've been there - and like julia said, it was about us not being mature enough to let go and say goodbye. It never got any better and eventually we'd just hurt each other enough to have to walk away...

Yeah, I think it's that attempt to convince oneself (and one's partner) that this time it will work. Probably because you really want it to, that you still have hope, whatever. But the question is: What is going to be different this time? What is going to change?
