Have you ever had a problem in a relationship because you were trying to maintain a friendship with an ex?
If I started dating a woman and she told me that she still spent time with her ex (a former sexual partner,) I would probably tell her to call me when she was finished with her ex. I think that having a "friendship" with an ex would look suspicious to most potential new partners and it would hinder me from moving forward, so I try to do total "no contact" when we break up (that's "no contact" like never, ever gonna see you again, and not "no contact" so you'll miss me and come running back into my arms.)

Do you try to remain friends with your exes? Why? Has that ever caused problems for you when you got into a new relationship?
