Hello men, I am posting this question on here because I want a man's POV about friendships with an ex. Background: My ex (30M) and I (30F) broke up about 5 months ago. We lived together and had a very close relationship. We had a lot of fun, our sex life was still good, and really felt like we were going to make it. We had problems we couldn't solve as a couple which led to our demise. Nothing too big just lack of communication. We broke up amicably and mutually but it was still pretty hard I am still not completely over him. He reached out about 3 weeks ago and told me he wanted to hang-out as friends. We've hung out a couple of times and he hasn't tried anything but when we're together gives me his full attention and I can still feel a spark-that may only be on my part though. He did tell me we had very good memories together so he wants us to be a part of each others lives. My questions is, in your opinion, what are the odds that he actually just wants to be friends? Is this something men want so soon out of a relationship?

I am sorry I am going to have to agree with acleverusername. I am not friends with any of my ex's. Most guys once they have been sexual with a friend can't go back partially out of a slight misguided thoughts around the next partner. We think a new woman wouldn't like it. Also if you have a female friend then it needs to be none sexual. You might be lucky and be able to go back but I think it's very unlikely. Yes he misses you but it's more likely that he wants a full reconciliation of your relationship. Good luck.0
