  • No if they offer friendship, it's just to soften the blow of breaking up. Who knows if they're not thinking they'll get another chance. My girlfriend broke up with her ex of 5 years a year before me and what happens 10 months in my relationship? The ex got impatient and asked my girlfriend for a friends hangout just to ask a lot of personal questions like how serious she was with me, how settled they'd be together, bla bla. My girlfriend told me about what he said and we kind of laughed about it, but her ex seemed desperate for love and he doesn't know how to move on. So if the ex turned out gay, then chances are they could be good friends, but if they feel guilty for how the relationship ended, they'll probably say anything to get their ex back

    I had cases i am friends with them, and some that I wish for them to die, and never to seem them again, but that is as they are ass's to begin with, not because there an ex

  • You can be friends with your ex, often times. But you then set up the issue of when you have a new boyfriend, your ex is still your friend, and the new boyfriend might not take well to the idea of a former fucker being your friend.

  • It depends on the situation and the individuals. Some can, many can't. I would even say that most can't, at least until some amount of time has passed by.

  • My ex and I are great friends. My current wife and I even sleep in the guest room of house of my ex and I. My current and ex has also become friends and call each other about once a week.
    My ex and I decided to part ways when our careers took different directions when I ended up across the country to work full time in a rival company. We grew apart so there was no need to continue the pretend marriage.

  • Depends on how she conducted herself during our relationship. Does she deserve any more of my time or attention? It's highly likely they already know the answer without me saying a word.

  • I'm friends with almost all of my exes. If you were really compatible as friends, then it should not be a problem.

  • You can, but sometimes it doesn't work out since one person can't move on that easily or just can't while you two remain friends.
