    After a tough breakup, many people gorge themselves in the nearest pint of ice cream and attempt to forget their sorrows. Shortly thereafter, it's common for them to experience a rush of self-confidence; they're determined to enjoy being single. However, the rush and the ice cream therapy can't last forever.

    It's easy to assume going back to your ex is okay if you have a change of heart. And in some cases, it's acceptable to retry a failed relationship. However, it's important to fully analyze your breakup, your ex and your plans for the future before rekindling the flame. Here are a few things to consider:

    The cause:

    Even the most pointless breakups happen for a reason. Before restarting your relationship with your ex, make sure to figure out why the two of you split up in the first place.

They make headlines because of their enviable romances, high-profile careers and cute kids; and we anxiously await their next moves.

    Below are five power couples that, for better or worse, never fail to command our attention:

    1. Prince William and Princess Catherine: The royal wedding lived up to every expectation, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have continued to capture our attention - and our hearts - ever since.

  • Jesse and Ann Csincsak

    By Daniela Agurcia and Steven Zangrillo for Cupid'

    When Former 'Bachelorette' winner Jesse Csincsak treads deep into the Colorado woods, he should bring a few lotto tickets with him. On Friday, February 17, the Breckenridge local was snowmobiling 15 miles in the middle of the backcountry in Vail when he came across a lost mother and her son. Mother, Hilary Skye, and son, Dillon, had been stranded before Jesse came to the rescue. This isn't the first (or second) serendipitous encounter to sneak up on the professional snowboarder as he's navigated the trails of the Rocky Mountains. Last year Thomas Pazerunas had also lost his way 15 miles behind the Vail Resort with no cell service until Csincsak helped him.

    As if playing backwoods Superman wasn't enough, Csincsak also notably brought his wife, 'Bachelor' Season 13 contestant Ann Csincsak, out into the same backcountry chill for their first date.

    Just because Valentine's Day is over doesn't mean single women can breathe a sigh of relief. Talk of spring romance is just around the corner, and many single women are still not feeling the love. For them, Valentine's Day was more like Valencrime's Day. It's hard for women, especially those over 35, to believe that there's true love out there for them. When friends and family tell you that you're too picky, thereby implying that you should settle, remember to close your ears. Instead, listen to what your heart is telling you. The fact is, your close ones don't have to live with the guy … you do.

    Love is an easy concept in theory, but when you have been on many a horrific dateand feel like the only men you are meeting are dingalings, the thought of a knight in shining armor in your future remains looking like a fairy tale. Most of the guys out there are far from Princely and are not nearly so charming.

    Relationships can be hard work, and they require a lot of effort to be put in from both ends. When you both commit, it makes it all worthwhile- in most cases. While many relationships start off on a high note and continue on the path of blissfulness, others plummet to a place of irreconcilable differences, physical altercations and repeated infidelity. They end up heading straight to Splittsville. In fact, all you have to do is ask the following couples:

    1. Chris Brown and Rihanna: Typically, the phrase "first love" invokes visions of butterflies, sunsets and all things untainted. But, in 2009, we saw an ugly side of first love. Singer, Chris Brown, was accused of assaulting his popstar girlfriend, Robyn "Rihanna" Fenty. At the time of the assault, Brown was 19 and Rihanna was 20. After pictures of Rihanna's badly beaten face surfaced, fans immediately took sides. Some were ready to dismiss Brown's actions as a forgivable misstep,

    By Donetta Huffman for Cupid's Pulse

    Finding out if you and your sweetheart are meant to be is sometimes a gut feeling, judged by your relationship's strengths and flaws. However, many couples (more often women) seek clarity by visiting psychics and astrologers. Whether for fun or to validate some serious decision-making about the fate of a relationship, these 'supernatural' predicting methods are a trend for young women looking for advice. If you're a numbers gal, numerology may be the thing that you crave.

    Numerology is the study of the symbolism of numbers to determine a couples life path, destiny, soul and overall compatibility. It can lead you to some interesting romance facts. You may have heard about numerology, but thought it was a complicated mathematical process that was difficult to master.
