Were you and your ex leading separate lives before the breakup?

How did it happen? Was it the cause or just a symptom of the breakup? How can you make sure it doesn’t happen again?

If you and your ex were leading separate lives before the breakup, you need to discover why; and whether it’s possible to rebuild the connection between you.
