  • definitely! but i think it's rare to change permanently. It's like a diet. you may be able to lose 100 pounds, but chances are...you'll gain it back. not everyone does, but most do.

  • Yes. People can certainly change, but you cannot change them. Nor can you make them want to change. That has to come from within the person himself.

  • I walked out on my BF and it has fully hit him what he just lost. The man he use to be , the one i fell in love with , is lurking at my door! (not literally) but in my heart! he wants a chance to prove himself to me, and i am thinking i want to let him (i want to date, instead of moving back in right away! )

  • I believe people can change, but they will only do it when and if THEY want to.

  • Yes.


    If you were not a mother I would say: Yes, people can change and if you really think he is worth it go see if he did. 


    But since you are a mom and have much more to consider than just you.... I would say: Yes people can change... but do you want to take a chance that he didnt and now your child has yo-yo through this relationship again.


    Once we be come mothers life isnt as easy go lucky as it used to be and the chances we take can not be as great because our kids are going through it all too.
