Can you remain best friends after breaking up?

anotherdork
We were best friends for 3 years. Our circumstances brought us closer together. I suffer from depression and anxiety, so to lose my first actual best friend, first time I was in love, has devastated me.

She is 10 years my senior (34m), separated with kids. I never expect her to choose me over her kids, i just never expected her to abandon me and not full address our situation just for their sake.

I dunno. I'm a 34m relearning how to meet people again. Meetups dont work, and our estranged text relationship is anything but. Can we remain best friends? Is that even possible? How do I move on?

I really wish I knew how to move on, how to meet people my own age. It's killing me. Thanks for replying
