Press pause or reset

Do you press pause or reset? When two people date for a few months or longer, but then breakup, what do they do if they get back together? Is it assumed that you resume where you left off, or clear the slate, pushing a further commitment farther in the future?
This situation was brought up in a show that I’ve mentioned before, called “how I met your mother”. The main character Ted was dating a girl that I shall keep anonymous (for fellow HIMYM watchers who haven’t seen the episode), and she kept dropping hints about a further commitment. Because she felt that the months they dated before should count as well.
Personally I think that you should probably resume rather than reset. You already know each other, and how you’ve felt before. If you both come back together agreeing that you made a mistake and are meant to be together, you shouldn’t wait and wait before you commit further. Although you should delve into what the cause of your break up was. Leaving that problem behind could just cause it to resurface later on in your relationship.

That’s all I can think of on that topic for now, but if you have your own points on why you should reset or press pause feel free to comment below :p.
