Science says it's not a good idea to reunite with an ex2/22/2012
Don't stay away from your ex because your mother says so, stay away because SCIENCE says so. A Kansas State University study determined that "cyclical relationships," in which a couple breaks up and then makes up, produce couples that make more impulsive decisions, such as moving in together or buying a pet. This leads, in turn, to deteriorating communication, lowered self-esteem, and higher uncertainty about what the future holds. One Gizmodo commenter isn't surprised, explaining, "This is exactly why after breaking up with my last girlfriend, I deleted her number, her e-mail and blocked her on Facebook." In light of recent music news, we're wondering if Rihanna and Chris Brown would do well to heed this sage relationship advice.
