Should You Hook Up With an Ex?

The Pros and Cons of Hooking Up With Your Ex

We're happy to present this excerpt from one of our favorite sites, The Date Report. If you're contemplating hooking up with an ex, you might want to weigh the pros and cons before you make a final decision.

Having sex with an ex is kind of like eating Pringles. Once you pop you can’t stop until you end up sweaty and disoriented surrounded by a graveyard of empty cans with traces of cheese dust on your face and a deep sense of regret. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are some pros and cons to reuniting with an old flame:

PRO:

You know what you’re in for. No one’s going to try to stick a cucumber somewhere crazy (unless you want them to.)

CON:

You know what you’re in for. Familiar can be boring.

PRO:

They’ve seen you at your worst (aka that time you shit yourself at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company) and they still want to hook up with you.

CON:

They’ve seen you at your worst. Do you really want to have sex with someone who wants to have sex with an incontinent person? Standards, people.

PRO:

You won’t get murdered by a Tinder date who turns out to be a serial killer.

CON:

You could get murdered in a crime of passion and vengeance. (Just kidding, you won’t get murdered.)

PRO:

Obligatory cuddling. Anyone who says they don’t like spooning is a bald-faced liar.

CON:

Obligatory cuddling. Spooning leads to warm and fuzzy feelings, and will definitely complicate the already precarious emotional situation you’re working with.
