If you feel that you'll always have romantic feelings for him, then don't stay friends. You both have to want the same thing. Do!'t convince yourself as well that being friends with him could possibly lead to the both of you dating. If you feel that you both would be fine being platonic, then by all means, stay friends. But really, what it really comes down to what do you want? If you want to be more than friends, then let him go. If you're okay with friends, be a friend. Enough on my part. I'm starting to sound like a broken record

You can keep him as a friend if you want too, but you may have a hard time moving on. I think being friends with an ex after a break up is a bad idea. I have found that cutting off all contact with them works just as well. If you still have lingering feelings for them then it would be hard to keep them as a friend. It all comes down to what you think is best for YOU, and not the other person.
