  • Nope. There's no point. Not to sound harsh, but I have enugh friends as is. And when I do get into a new relationship at some point, the last thing I want to deal with is my new girl hating the fact that I'm friends with an ex. It's just not worth it.

  • I've attempted several times, don't get me wrong, but in the end it really doesn't work out. There's a reason why I no longer have a relationship with them, I'm not looking to prolong the toxicity of their character. Though I guess it would depend on why you broke up I guess, the most common reason for me was because they were whores.

  • Yeah. Because she is a genuinely nice person who is a friend and she is like family. There is no animosity. I'm not the type to hold grudges & I focus on now/tomorrow more than yesterday.

  • I am friends with many of my ex's, the reason we got together in the first place was because she was a cool person who I wanted to get to know, that doesn't change if we didn't work out as a couple. Ex's are ex's for reasons but that doesn't mean those reasons will necessarily preclude friendship

    • Couldn't agree more. It really shows how mature you both are, as long as the reasons to end it were not harmful to any of you

  • Just the fact she's the mother of my child. I have never said a bad word towards her and yet I don't really like her at all. Go figure!

  • Many of them. We got together cause we got along in the first place. Often doesn't change just cause we figured out not fully compatible

    • I can relate to the catching feelings again part. I just learned to look at them as a reminder of why i wanted to stay friends.

  • yes. I date good people and like to be friends even if it won't work out.

  • no, that's silly. and for that exact reason, they usually still like you, and would only get in the way of a new relationship. charles and diana split because he was cheating on her with his ex

  • Yep I've stayed friends so far with one out of two of my exes. It ended pretty well between us and he's a genuinely nice guy so we stayed friends.

  • Yeah, but that's because we were young and noticed that we were better off as friends. We both agreed and, though we're not as close as we used to be, we're still close friends.

  • I have :) mainly as it wasn't a long relationship and by that point as it was mutual ending we knew that much about each other it was a waste to stop talking. He was my rock for a long time
