Most Helpful Guy
To each their own really. Some deal with breakup by cutting ties. Some stay in contact. There is no universal way to do this.0

My best friend is a guy. I dated him when i was 16, hence he was my first kiss. We ended things after a week so technically he's my ex. Lol even if hell freezed over, neither of us would go anywhere near each other. He's currently engaged to a lovely girl and i couldn't be happier for them. I no longer see him as my ex, and he's the equivalent of a gay friend to me XD
I think that there has to be a period of time where you don't talk to your ex. I don't believe you can go straight from ending a relationship to being friends. I think there definitely will be some feelings still.
I think you're not wrong. Maybe you just love him too much to see him in any other way. Tell him that you care too much about him to be friends.0
