All we know as of right now is that they talked and ended up spending the night together. That is not "getting back together". If they do get back together without addressing Hazel's issues, feel free to repost.
And for the record, just because Darren (the gay friend) a hedonistic man-slut just as selfish and immature as Hazel, he's doesn't mean he's not right. If Hazel wasn't ready for what Zach wanted, she just wasn't ready, and that's that. Beating herself up over it wouldn't do any good (especially given Hazel's lack of self-awareness).
Fair enough, although my entry did specify that Hazel was "well on her way to reconciling with Zach" not that they already did it; But, "ending up spending the night together" (and confirmed having sex, or did they?) after a painful break-up does signal a reconciliation from a mile away.
Also, if they do get back together with Zach apologizing for "putting pressure on Hazel" it will be this trope, because he never did so. It was pointed out by readers many times on the GWS website that it wasn't that Zach was pressuring her for marriage, he just wanted to talk about their plans to get a sense of where the relationship was going, Hazel refused to communicate at all, and that's something Darren got wrong on his advice to Hazel. A lot of people expressed that what Darren said would be terrible advice for a person like Hazel, regardless of its source.
I removed this example:
Apart from This Troper, it doesn't have an explanation, and it doesn't even mention if it actually involves Leonard taking Penny back after she did something dickish, or if it's just someone complaining about a couple they don't like.
If it actually applies, someone who watches the show please add it back with some elaboration.
Penny used to be extremely bipolar about whether she wanted to be with Leonard or the hunk of the week. She was also a slob and not very intelligent. Now they've settled into a more healthy "We both have problems, but we still love each other," kind of relationship, actually getting married, and the example wouldn't make much sense anymore.
Can we change the trope title to Why Would Anyone Take Them Back? Perhaps less grammatically correct, but there are examples from both genders, and the current title indulges in a bit of The Unfair Sex.

How well does it match the trope?
