well, when you meet someone new and its getting serious, then as a friend, you would say, okay, we shouldn't hang out as much and respectfully, you would introduce your new partner to your friend (that is if you have no more feelings from your ex.) feelings can fade and you can be friends no?i have no choice but to speak to my ex. husband all the time due to kids.
Having kids with the ex changes everything. You should be able to have a civil conversation with them because you will have kids in common for the rest of your lives.Otherwise, when people try to remain "friends" with their ex, usually one of them is harboring a hope of reigniting the romance and, ultimately, they will get hurt.
certainly you can call me that. better than feeling lonely. when i say hang out i don't mean to sleep with.
I know what you meant but I'm sure you are underestimating yourself that you can be alone. You can have guy friends (that is not your ex) or hang with friends or family. Also it makes just the transition more better.

sorry if i misunderstood... you mean okay to keep in contact?
Yes. Don't overdo it, but still maintain contact in some way.
why did you say will fail 100%?
If you want to get back together with someone (especially a female wanting to get back with a male), the No Contact Rule fails. For women, it fails because his penis is constantly on the prowl for new meat anyway. So, you need to be in his mind if you want any chance at getting back together because his penis wants nookie and it doesn't care whether it's you or not.
so at the end, being the female, you will only be friends with benefits at best?
Not at all and absolutely DO NOT settle for F. W. B at all. That is the worst thing you can do because then you are just a doormat.
