Should I Take My Ex Back After Our 2-Year Breakup?

Jayson and I dated about four years ago and we were a glorified fling at best. Many of our dates consisted of takeout, me cooking up a plate of his favorites, movies and lots and lots of affection. But I wasn’t mad at the limitations to our hangouts. Jayson made me laugh, he was great to look at (I’m admittedly shallow) and he treated me with respect. He definitely had a soft spot in my heart. He was special. I was the one who approached him initially when we first met.

He was working at The Art Of Shaving and I walked by with a friend of mine. I spotted him immediately. He was immaculately dressed. I’m talking, a sharp suit, tie, complete with a silky pocket square. This brother was debonair enough to make Billy Dee Williams insecure. I stopped in my tracks, walked back to the store with my girl hot on my heels, calling my name, “Danielle!”

“Girl, did you see him?” I asked strutting back to the store. “I’m just gonna go say hi.”

She laughed, “I fully support this movement,” my friend said as she walked in the store behind me.

His smile lit up the entire store, “Hi, my name is Jayson. Welcome to The Art of Shaving. How may I help you?”

It took everything in me not to say a corny line you’d hear in a silly romantic comedy, “I’m looking for a gift for my dad,” I lied and grinned from ear to ear. My homegirl shot me a look of approval and kept pretending to browse the store.
