I Am Best Friends With My Ex

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 93 People

    Does part of me still love you?

    No. All of me still does. People advised me to make a clean break. Otherwise I'll never be able to "move on". I hate that expression. Treating people like commodities that can be disposed of when they've outlived their original purpose. And what exactly do they see me...

    In the past I felt like exes were exes

    for a reason, that is...until him. I met a guy who is now my Ex and Best Friend through our classmates almost a decade ago and we hit it off immediately. His shy and stern ways surprisingly blended well with my boldness and carefree tendencies. Actually, we mixed so "well...

    It has been a little over a month

    He's My Best Friend.

    I am best friends with my first love. We didn't work out because my family didn't approve of him and I was too young to stand up to them. We stayed close. I dated other guys. He dated other girls. I fell in love again and got married. He fell in love again and got heart broken...

    Work Relationships.. *shudder*

    I remember the first day I saw him.. The most PIERCING blue eyes I had ever seen in my life. It was his first day on the job.. I remember the look on his face when he saw me walk in. I'm the only woman who works there. I'm by no means gorgeous, but when I'm the only woman you...

    Me and my ex are inseperable. We were only together for about 3 months and that was over a year ago and to this day we are still close as ever, just without the relationship side of things of course. He has been in relationships since we ended but has always spent more time with...

    Why Do Others Have Issues With You Being Friends With Your Ex?

    I have been best friends with my ex since soon after we broke up 7 years ago.  We had been and lived together for almost 12 years before the split and I realised from soon after the break that I was mouring the loss of the friendship more than the loss of our relationship...

    This Was Me....

    I used to be best friends with my ex-boyfriend.  We hung out at least twice a week.  At first it was okay.  I felt like I wasn't being affected.  Just friends.  Really.  For one year.  Not physical at all in the beginning.  Later maybe a...

    She Loves Me!

    I remember when we broke up because I couldn't sleep more that 2 hours a night the entire week leading up to it.  I was terrified of it.  At first I thought it was because she was so gorgeous and a just a bit "out of my league," and I didn't want to be alone...
