My poll question was just generalizing it, but in my case we were friends for 2 years, were in a 6-month relationship, and just recently have broken up (I ended it). Right after the breakup we were on good terms for the next 3 weeks, keeping contact/joking etc. but then it all changed. His last text ended with "goodbye for now", but since then we've texted each other on Christmas and New Year's. So I'm really hoping that eventually, once some time passes we'll be able to go back to the friends we were before we dated, or at least be on good terms with each other. Is that naive of me to hope for?

No, if you are both stable adults, you should be able to maintain a friendship. You probably could not be really close friends, that would be too cloying and unnerving but certainly you can be there for each other when you have problems.
I've done this a couple of times. In spite of major fights shortly after we split.0

Hmm personally I don't know it depends on when, like a high school relationship then yes but the older you get the more you realize you don't need to be on good terms with anyone, can be civil but you don't need to have certain people in your life just because youve known them for a while and feel like you need to. So again no- personally for me I can't go back being friends with someone that I was emotionally and physically connected to on a deep level.0
