So this guy I was dating broke up with me recently, and I was wondering about people's takes on if it is possible to be friends with an ex. This fall we'll both be freshman at the same college living in the same dormitory (different floors), and I'd really like to stay friends with him. When he broke up with me he said he wanted to remain friends, but it's been almost a week and I have yet to hear from him. He was my first kiss and the guy I lost my virginity to, so I still care for him and he means a lot to me. Of course I'd like to think one day we'll actually be together, but I can stand to be his friend if I can make it work.
