How long should you usually wait until making contact with that person (of course depending on the circumstances of the break) and if you were on one how long did you wait to contact that person for lunch or just to wish them well or something?

I don't believe in trying to have contact with an ex unless you have children together. I am not saying to avoid them. I believe in being cordial to an ex (unless they are impossible to talk to) but I won't try to contact them. I did attempt something along these lines with an ex a few years ago, against my better judgment, and, sure enough, it was a bad idea. The reality is that if you don't have enough to make it as BF/GF what is left is not much. Calling to hang out is just awkward and calling to wish them well or Happy Birthday or anything like that is awkward too. If you had a mutual break, then hopefully you both let each other know your well wishes at that time.0
