Absence makes the heart grow fonder. That's why we've partnered with Forever My Girl, in theaters Jan. 19, to share the joy and complexity of reconnecting with your first love.

You'll always cherish the memories of your first love. After all, who could forget the excitement of your very first date, or that evening when your significant other caught you by surprise with that memorable first kiss under the stars? However, returning to those halcyon days by reconciling with your ex isn't always the storybook reunion you might imagine. Inspired by the story of first love reignited in Forever My Girl, we asked our editors to reveal what happened when they reconnected with their exes. Before you text your ex to fan the flames of your relationship — or try to reinstate your friendship — read on to learn how it worked out for our editors!
