  • For me and my ex I could easily be her freind. She only let me love her. So I was really just her freind that she called a boyfreind. I could but for some reason she could not. She is weird emotionally though. Always looking for secret meanings in my texts and feelings that were not there. When I talked with her she said it was to painful. In my mind I don't see how her actively avoiding me could be easier.

  • I would say not as long as the feelings aren't gone yet. Otherwise it would be just lots of drama as soon as he gets in a new relationship.
    I am good friends with an ex of mine, but we hadn't had any contact for the first two years after breakup in order to get over eachother.

  • Me and my ex-wife still talk and hang out together as friends. We actually seem to get along better now that we're not married then we did in the last 4 years of our marriage. And yes I still have romantic feelings for her.

  • Its torture. Dont do it to yourself. And when they find someone else the friendship will almost certainly end anyway :(

  • I am BFF with my third ex. But today she was trying to make me angry all day long without any good reason. Brought out all old things and so on.

    So right now I am thinking can we still be friends or is she just used to my support, both material and emotional.

  • You want the whole thing. Not parts. It will be a constant yearning and this creates suffering.

  • Possibly. It mainly depends on what caused the breakup.
