    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...

    Him

    My ex, Carlos, and I were friends months before we ever started dating. We just seemed to understand the other so well and it wasn't long before we were always calling the other and were best friends. Then one day we were hanging out and he turned to me and asked, "Would you...

    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...

    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...
