  • no i hate the fuck out of her. she's fucking crazy. after the fight that led to our breakup she showed up to my place at 4 in the morning after walking outside in the cold for atlas 15 minutes to get from her place to mine, then broke into my supposedly locked building and walked up 11 flights of stairs and stood outside my door for half an hour before she realized i wasn't coming out. then she proceeded to call me 9 times in the morning and cried on the phone and tried pulling the suicide card... we had been dating for 2 weeks

  • No. I'd be friendly if I ever seen them and it wasn't just from afar but friends, no. I don't want that. I'm friends with guys who used to want to be with me and that bothers my husband a little bit. Very little. Although I made sure to have him form his own friendships with them as well. I couldn't imagine if there was actually ever something there in the past and putting him in a position to just accept the friendship. For me if its over it's OVER. That's why you don't date friends unless you're willing to risk the consequences.

  • No. I believe that when you stay in touch and still meet, you can't move on and don't want to lose him/her. I think cutting your losses is the most healthy thing to do, so you can move on. Being friends will keep you from doing that in my opinion.

  • I haven't stayed friends with any of my ex-gf but my ex-wife and I remained as friend. We ended in good terms and we were together for 8 years. I guess it just depends on how the relationship ended and how long it lasted.

  • Im friends with all my ex'es. Not close-hangout-talk a lot friends, but I've tried to always make a point about ending stuff in a decent way, and being open to friendship. It have ended badly once, but we became friends a few year later when we accidentally met. ^^ no bad blood with any of them at now. However, I have had some bad "endings" with girls that I have rejected, even when I felt we were friends before.

  • Close friends with one (she even helped me when I had marital troubles) and in contact with another. The rest I don't think about unless I have to use them to illustrate a point I need to make on this site.

  • I am, but I attribute that to the fact that I left her before the relationship got to the point where we resented her. I still love her, but I know it wasn't to the point where I should be her lover.

    • Thank you again. You are one of the reasons I'm so happy I downloaded this app!

    • Sure, I'm glad to help. That's what it's for.

  • I let her know she's a tramp and a floozy any time I see her. I believe she deserves it for destroying our family. I know some will disapprove and that's fine, but I do it respectfully out of the sight of my children. I could never be her friend without proper addressing of the wrongs committed in the past.

  • I usually stay friends but it always pewters out after a while. If nothing else a close relationship with your ex usually makes it awkward when one of you find someone else.

  • None of them! I've always tried to staybin touch with them but none of them are ever interested. But then again it's always me being dumped rather the other way round. I've never cheated nor been aggressive or anything of that kind... maybe I've just bored them to death hahaha.

  • Depends on why we broke up. If we just don't work as a couple and better as friends. Say two friends who date each other just because. But are not really attracted to each other. But if I lusted for her and we broke up, I can't see me friending her.

  • I’m still friends with one of my exes. We’re were friends, then started dating, were together for a good little while, then just went back to being friends. We just kind of mutually agreed one day that we weren’t going to be together romantically for the long haul and liked being friends better than boyfriend/girlfriend. He’s actually dating my bestie now, and I’m totally ok with it. I’m marrying her brother soon anyway.

  • i mean it just depends on how the relationship ended. if it ended on a harsh note and if your ex is generally a nice/friendly person, then continuing to see them might not be a big deal. both parties have to be respectful and mature about it though. out of the 4 relationships i've been in, i still talk to at least 2 of them with no issue.

  • I tried and he was being generally super negative and not paranoid but he was pretty much asking "are you sure you still want to be friends" over and over as if he didn't really want to so I just blocked him on everything and ended it there.

  • After having a 6 year exclusive relationship in our late teens & early 20s, my 1st boyfriend & I broke up in good terms. We've been in touch at least twice each year for the past 20+ years. In fact, he and my current beau know each other.

  • We're in the same group of friends so it's kind of just in everyone's best interest that we get on with eachother. That said, things are still a little awkward between us and we don't hang out as just the two of us or anything but I'd say we're chill

  • I have 2 “ex’s”
    One guy I was on and off with for a year and a half. But it wasn’t like a regular relationship. We were together basically but he was afraid of committing so sometimes he would say I was his girlfriend but others he said I wasn’t and that we were only kind of together. Let’s just say.. yhinhs didn’t work out and now he doesn’t talk to me

    The other guy I was friends with for a couple months. We went on a few dates and began to “see each other” for about a month. Just hanging out going to dinner watching movies and kissing but we never made it official. He really liked me but I was hesitant. So we only “went out” for like a month then ended things and he won’t talk to me either🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m so great with relationships aren’t I ☹️
