  • I haven't voted.. For me this depends on the relationship you had with them.. If it was real love and still is.. I think it'll hurt too much to be friends.. At least for a while.. But if the feelings both faded over time.. Then I think friends is more of an option..

    Also depends on the break up in some cases

  • Me and my ex haven't spoken since her birthday where I texted saying happy birthday, and before that it was a couple months. I haven't seen her since July last year when I broke up with her. I wanted to remain friends but after her reaction and what she said a week after we broke up made me realise that wasn't gunna happen. Now she has a new boyfriend, but I have no interest in trying to be friends and I don't think she does either. I've blocked her on basically everything after she started annoying me, saying stuff about wanting me back and how she's changed and stuff.

    So I'd say I'm very much in the "cut off contact" group :P

    I don't think you can go back to being friends after an intense/romantic relationship, it'll always be different.

  • It depends on how the breakup was. My first boyfriend an I broke up only because of distance, and I think we could be friends if we happened to live in the same place. My most recet ex is a horrible person and I never want to have any contact with him ever again.

  • Never works for me. I tried once. We used to end up getting into old patterns , being jealous of each other’s new dates... discussing old issues. Bad idea

  • I definitely wouldn't try to be friends with my ex. He put me through so much hell during and after our relationship that I legit became depressed.

  • It depends. One of mine is a good friend, even after we were not in touch for years and she earlier helped me when I had relationship troubles with the woman I was seeing after she and I broke up (now that is a nice ex!). I've also hung out with another one after we were no longer together.

    The rest weren't candidates for that for geographical or other reasons (grew apart).

  • Nope. I wouldn’t do it. Why? How are you going to respond when they start dating someone else? You might think you can handle it but trust me to see a woman with a new guy and you used to have sex with her is just bad bad bad. The best thing to do is cut your losses and move on.

  • Well give the girl space and then try to reach out to her. If she responds good if not then give up or talk with her in person.

  • In general, i withdraw into myself and cut all contact forever. But. If she ever desperately needed my assistance, then i would still be there.
