    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...

    Long Time

    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...

    Me And My Ex

    Now I have always been up for the idea of just being friends cause it still allows that closeness without doing anything else and I before I started dating my ex I was great friends with her. Me and her dated once she left her controlling bf. The relationship was extremely short...

    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...

    Arthur

    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...

    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...
