SmartGirls submit their questions, and we post them! Here are some of the results.
We posted the following poll on SmartGirl.org:
Question: If an ex who broke your heart
wanted to get back together, would you do it?
Jess, age 15
45 SmartGirls responded.
We asked SmartGirls to tell us what they thought the most popular response would be.
Most SmartGirls guessed that the most popular response
would be "Maybe...". Many SmartGirls guessed "Definitely not!" A
few Smartgirls guessed "Yes, of course!"
This chart shows how SmartGirls voted in the poll:
The majority of
SmartGirls chose "Maybe...", followed
by "Definitely not!" Of the 45 SmartGirls
polled, only 1 chose
"Yes, of course!"
These results are interesting because they match the
hypothesis, but 44% of SmartGirls polled actually predicted that most
SmartGirls would choose a different answer from their own. That means
that some of the SmartGirls who chose "Maybe..." thought most other SmartGirls
would say "Definitely not!" and many SmartGirls who chose "Definitely
not!" thought most other SmartGirls would say "Maybe...".
Here's what SmartGirls had to say about why they chose
Yes, of course!
I have a dream to be homecoming/prom queen.
Well he might change, I don't know!
It depends on who it is. If I really liked being with him then probably
yes, if not then no. It just depends.
Cuz he already broke my heart and I'm sensitive. I wouldn't want
it to happen again.
Because people deserve second chances
It all depends on the closeness of the both of you. But you shouldn't
just jump back into it. Take your time, almost like you're getting
to know each other again.
It matters, the situation and the person
It depends on what he did to break your heart.
It depends on why they broke up with you.
It would depend on if I loved him or not.
because he broke your heart and you think he is cute
I would still love him. Love is forever!
Depends on how the relationship was before, if he apologizes, my
Because they might have become a better person.
If he broke my heart and he wanted to get back together, there is
the possibility that he will break my heart again if I give him another
I should never be treated like that
Because they broke my ehart and he would deserve to feel the way
He's not worth it! You can find someone so much better!
cuz he's stupid!
because he might do it again
Cause he might break your heart again
It didn't work the first time, it won't work the second ... or third
... or fifth.
He chose to hurt me. He doesn't get to hurt me again. What kinda
question is that? Sorry, but who would say yes or maybe? Those who
say that need to know that you deserve better. There are other fish
in the sea. Show him that you deserve better, yell, and make him jealous
that he doesn't have you. Make him want you back even more. Say no,
though. If the boy has a bad reputation, don't go out with him in the
They frickin' broke my heart! Why in the world would I give it back
Because he'd do it again
Have you ever been in this situation before? What did you do? What would
your ex have to do to earn your forgiveness and a second chance? How
would you know if it was worth it? If you definitely wouldn't date again,
do you think you could still be friends?
