  • He'll probably just string you along. I'm not friends with my ex at all, I keep my distance for him. I look at being friends with an ex as weird, it doesn't always work. You can start to catch feelings for them again, and get your hopes up for no reason. I think he just wants to string you along and play with your feelings. If you want to be friends with him that's up to you. I would just move on if i were you, I wouldn't waste my time. My ex and I were not friends at all, were more like strangers we don't talk or anything.

  • It really depends on how it affect you and if you are single or not.

    If you are single then yes a friendship can work out. :)
    But if you are in a relationship with another boyfriend, I would say stay in touch with him, but don't get too close. It can affect you emotional.

  • He wants you back. Men do not want to be "best friends" with a woman that is not their significant other.

    • Aww, but I have a lot of guy bestfriends :"(

    • No. Women love to think that. If they are straight, 100% of them, if the situation was right, will have sex with you if they had the chance. If your both single and you offer... every one wants to screw you. Only women will think "oh, he is just the best friend..." nope. we stay friends so we are on your mind and on the radar in case situation changes and we get our chance.

  • He's in a reflective phase you'll end up just going through the entire process that has already transpired again

    • Yeah. We'd speak to him because he and his slaves cannot spell "great" wonderful.

  • Hahaha. I would laugh my face off. He wants to be best friends? That would be a great lie to behold. The least we could do is stay friends. NOT best friends.

  • He probably wants to be a friend (not a real best friend) with benefits. Or he could literally just want to be your best friend but since he's your ex it would probably not be a good friendship.

  • Being friends with someone you love or loved never works. And if you can be just friends that means you still have feelings for them or you never did. I had an ex that I loved with all my heart and we stayed "friends" and it was the complete opposite. We still hung out all the time, kissed, had sex, hell we didn't even talk to other people. It's never good to be "just friends" and really expect that to be it. Maybe if you were considering getting back together you could try being best friends and go from there. But if you don't want to get back together, just let him go.
