- Hi everyone! Does the writer mean that "You shouldn't go back to your ex-girlfriend, ex-boyfriend, ex-wife or ex-husband because he or she is not a decent person" in this picture?

Thanks so much!

It has nothing to do with decency (or cleanliness). The meaning behind the statement is that it is a bad (pointless?) idea. It makes about as much sense as putting on dirty clothes after you shower...or scratching a spot that is not itchy...or rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic...
