Giving it a second shot?

I've recently reconnected with The Ex and am contemplating a discussion about getting back together with him. I'm looking for your stories about round 2 (or 3, 4, and beyond), how it worked or didn't work out for you.

We were our first loves, first LTR's, first live-in significant others. We spent our mid-late 20's building a life together.
He broke up with me after three and a half plus years for mostly vague reasons that to this day I still don't really understand.
Two and a half years later, we've made contact again and are attempting to be friends. Our conversations have begun where they left off and it's incredible having him in my life again. I can't help but wonder if we are still "meant" to be together, and now that time has passed and we've learned more from our mistakes (the older and wiser theory), that maybe this time around we could communicate better and actually work on our relationship rather than run from it.
I'd really love to hear your stories about getting back together with an Ex. And of course, any advice on how to navigate this territory would be greatly appreciated.
