Most Helpful Girl
My brother has tried to remain friends with every girl he broke up with. He still likes them as a friend. Many of his exes are still friends with him to this day.
However, one time I had a boyfriend who broke up with me. He could see I was upset and said we can still be friends. I don't think HE really meant it though. I haven't talked to him since anyway.
So it really depends on the situation. But at least try to remain friends.
Most Helpful Guy
It's rare that a guy will go into era relationship based on looks/sex alone. There has to be something there, usually something that makes them friends.
So when they stop dating, they don't necessarily want to lose all the positive things that made them friends.
It very much depends on the nature of the break up. If it was amicable, then it's very appealing to just become friends again.
