People handle this issue differently. For some no problem, for others like myself it is difficult for reasons unknown.
I understand the reasons..........especially if its a long term marriage/relationship.
It depends on how things ended. I have never been close friends with anyone I was in a relationship with, cordial but not friends. I have tried but it didn't work for me, to much pain involved.
As long as you've healed up from your hurt, sure. It's perfectly healthy to have someone who was a big part of your life as just a friend. Erasing them from you completely would be silly- unless they were a jerk. Then it'd be foolish to remain friends with them.
Nah...nope...nada....It aint cool to be friends with an ex who cheated on u..i mean its just not possible, too much hurt n hate. Its wil be pretense, past is past.
of course as long as your dealing with mature people
Not in my case/situation! It would be totally impossible for me.
I could never remain friends with someone I found to be somewhere close to........demoniac.
Even if he changed I wouldn't because he is now with someone I consider his equal. (so I know he has not changed) They can play the game all they want just as long as they stay clear of me.
I do with my ex, solely for the sake of our 3 kids....
It'd be "sayanora babe!" Pfft!
Never been friend to my ex's lol
well i dont make friends to my ex's whats in the past, is in the past..
thank u :)
I think it is totally okay. If you were friends before and then you end your relationship, I see no problems with remaining friends. If you both still get along and are still friends then there is nothing wrong with it. I mean there is no reason to end a great friendship just because you are not in a relationship anymore.
Nope, bad bad idea. it will give plenty of headaches in new relationships
nah, if it didnt work out as a couple being "just friends" wouldnt work with having previous ...feelings.
So long as it's a healthy friendship, why not?
Absolutely. My ex-wife and I have been on excellent terms for over 30 years. It is easier, for us and our children. And anyway, we never hated or disliked each other, we just could not live together anymore without causing serious conflict, which could only have meant hard feelings for everyone concerned. It has worked out great. I was a good friend of her late husband, and spent much time in their home with them and my children. I wouldn't have had it any other way :))
