Evelyn Lozada came face to face with her ex-husband Chad Johnson this morning -- the first time since his domestic violence arrest back in August -- and offered the NFL star a HUGE olive branch.

Evelyn and Chad both appeared in a Florida courtroom ... where Evelyn asked the judge to drop the restraining order that was placed against him after she told police he headbutted her during an argument.

After the incident, Evelyn quickly filed for divorce from Chad -- after just one month of marriage.
 
Chad has been on a tour of contrition on TV and the Internet ever since ... apologizing left and right ... and admitting he has an anger problem. Chad also revealed that he's getting professional help to deal with his rage issues.

During the court hearing, the judge asked Evelyn if she had been threatened or coerced into making the request to drop the order ... to which she replied, "No."

The judge also asked if she was afraid of Chad ... and she also replied, "No."

The judge granted Evelyn's request.

Sources connected to Evelyn tell TMZ ... the "Basketball Wives" star isn't sure where the relationship will go, but at the very least, she wants to start talking to him again.

If he kills her then they both will disappear, one in the ground one in prison. Same wishes for all ignorant couples who waste MY tax paying dollars.

She dressed like that for chads benefit. It's only a matter of time before they're back together. She's gonna be yet another "great" example for young women to follow. Just like rhianna

Good for you girlfriend!!! No woman should accept that kind of treatment from a man. Rihanna should take a lesson from this strong woman.

I'm glad she is finally happy. hopefully this doesn't back fire on her, I mean she did show the world to stand up to domestic violence, this move can possibly make her lose fans.

Evelyn has said that she is open to closure...opening her legs that is. Chad is so unemployable that he'll do anything to get on.
