Just curious as to what people think...
Is being friends with your ex good?

It's a lot better than being enemies like some couples become. I'd rather date someone who is still friends with their ex, than someone who went through a bitter breakup. There are two reasons for that. First, it says something about them if they can break up cordially. Second, bitter breakups tend to spill over into the next relationship. I prefer someone without that kind of baggage.0
It can be an uneasy friendship, if you know each other's 'dirty little secrets.1
If you didn't have a bad closure. And the breakup is mutual then. Just don't have physical contact. But never tell your the current lover that she is your ex. Coz it may stir up things. And the current one may think you are a player.0
In my experience, no. I've tried to keep things amicable. We just usually drift apart and stop talking.0
Can be also can not be0
It can be good if you've both moved on and the breakup was mutual.0
Well, it really depends on the person. If they negatively affect you, then probably not. If they positively affect you, then it depends on whether or not you are okay with talking to them. I am still friends with most of my exs because we understand that a relationship with another shouldn't affect our friendship.0
At most girls's situation no not good0
Depends how u guys broke up. If it's something u two can solve, might be able to become friends. But if it is a bad break up. I would stay away.0
I mean all. My exes don't leave me alone. Every few months they pop up and tell. Me how they have been like I care I'm friendly but not friends.. When I think of taking someone to the movies on a platonic basis none of my exs names come to mind0
Yes, most won't but if your friendship came before the sex, there is good possibility it can continue, after hurt feelings subside.0
Depends how things left off and if you think you could have a lasting friendship with them without getting back together... unless you that's what you want to do0
Honestly no. Unless you have a child with this EX or a long past then you should not try and make a friendship work. Plus if you got into relationship with another female or male it would make it awkward and it may cause an argument0
Ex or not doesn't matter since i believe we must be kind toward anyone0
I think that once you end a relationship you should not be in contact with them for a while0
YES, friends with benefits0
Yes it's good as long as it doesn't get awkward over time1

If you can do it, that's more than fine.
A lot of people can't do it so that's why it's uncommon to hear about1
From my experience it is, at least if you used to be friends before and there is something to build this friendship on.
But it wouldn't work right away after breakup for sure.0
If it works for you guys, and it's no weird for either of you, I don't see what the issue would be. You guys have a past, so it's nice that you guys get along enough to continue to make memories and share old ones without any heartache.0
Depends... if it's an ugly closure, then no.0
