I've read other posts and it seems many say it's for friendship? But seriously is that the real reason or are their feelings still their? Otherwise what's the point as most exes aren't really friends and I think everyone knows that deep down?
Most Helpful Girl
"Friends" as in "Hey it's Friday night so lets grab a beer together" is definitely not the way most exes can work after a break up. But I do think it is a mature adult who can weather the storm and say "When I see you, I will be polite and civil" Now all break ups are different and if it ended badly, with bad behavior on one or both sides, then this isn't going to work either. I just think it's SO STUPID when couples break up, regardless of who dumped who, and one of them can't handle acknowledging the other in social settings, especially if you have the same friends. Grow up already! I also don't like it when girls feel lonely and insecure and so they resort to seeking attention from their ex just to feel better (by the way, guys do this too). Bad behavior and immaturity give being an "Ex" a bad wrap. The way I see it is "You and I used to date, and now we don't date. It's really not a huge deal. Give me a label like "Ex" if you want to, but leave the baggage at the door"!0
