I broke up with my ex in a mutual-break-up about a week ago. I'm still sad about it, but what I miss the most is the feeling of losing a friend. We had a pretty solid friendship holding the relationship together, and I know he has told me lots of secrets he hasn't told anyone and vice versa. There are things I feel like I can tell him but I can't tell anyone else.
I realize that I may feel like this because I miss him, but I am forced to see him every day because of school and we have mutual friends, and I know it makes things difficult by treating him as an ex or a stranger for everyone around.
Perhaps I feel like I haven't gotten closure, or really any type of communication about reasons why it didn't work out. We both weren't really on the same page as to why we wanted to split during the time we were leading up to it. I plan on asking him about it when the hurt and wounds are gone in about a few weeks or so, but still. Have you been friends with your exes, and how did it work out?

It won't work and will hurt you later. Feelings are not switch on/off button so it won't stop. Imgaine he start date another woman you will feel horrible. Stay away no contact at all if you guys realize you can't live without each other then maybe you both will make it work again if not then NC is the best solution.0
