So why do you keep girls that you have dated (not necessarily a relationship but just a month or two) as a friend? Are you keeping them as an option? Or maybe you will revisit the relationship because it is not right timing?

For me it depends how long I dated the person. For girls that I only dated a month or two, then no, I don't stay in contact with them. It didn't work, and we weren't compatible. No reason to.
However, I have multiple exes that I dated for multiple years. And you don't stay with someone for 3 years if you don't like them as a person. Well, I don't. I realize a lot of people do, actually, but I never have. The relationships mostly just broke down because after getting to know each other for that long, we realized that even though we really liked each other, and in some cases loved each other, that it wouldn't work as a marriage. And so at that point we would move on. But the liking each other part never changed. Some of my best friends now are my exes, because they know me and my peculiarities the best.
A lot of guys do keep girls 'on hold' though, where they do hope to hook up again at another time. I suppose I would consider it in some cases, if they were looking for something like that I may help them out, but I am very cognizant that we broke up for a reason, and I know what those reasons are.0
