Can't the friendship be sustained?
Can't us at least mean well for each other and be able to say hi and hello at least?
I think it depends. If the relationship wasn't toxic and both people don't have feelings for each other anymore then they could be friends. But if one person or both people have feelings for each other then just being friends isn't a good idea
I don't know what -should- happen... since all relationships can be different as well as the people in them, the outcomes will vary
in my case, I've never had a relationship to just fall apart and break, up... onto pieces, all my relationships were more like a cycle that was just completed and then came to an end, as a romantic relationship, keeping them going and with the circumstances at the time would have been very difficult and maybe impossible, very costly and exhaustive for sure, so... it was for the best, at the end
and then we aimed for the best next... I'm still best friends with the two first girlfriends I ever had, and I am in friendly terms with the last two girlfriends I ever had... and that's all four of them, my friendships with them are very easy to maintain because well... the love we had for each other just changed, evolved and switched to caring, just caring for one another as friends... lucky, I guess
I would say that a friendship between the sexes would never work because of biology. Unless y’all are childhood friends and see each other as siblings. Even worse is being friends with an ex. Imagine the hurt if one of the parties haven’t fully moved on by the the time the other finds someone.💀
it depends on how long you guys were together as friends vs lovers. it also depends on how it ended haha i dont exactly think a friendship could stay if cheating was involved
Impossible I dated my BFF he dumped me we haven’t seen each other since
It is hard to maintain friendships after a breakup. The passion is gone and the effort becomes exhausting.
Friendship is awkward, especially after my brother talks to them
I don't see the point of remaining friends.

Not all relationship break ups are the same, so I think that'd depend on the nature of both the relationship itself and the reason for the breakup... I mean if a woman lied to you, cheated on you and then broke up with you to be with someone else or you broke up with her because of the cheating, would you want to remain friends with that person?
Or if one falls out of love with their partner, but the other didn't?
If it was a mutual break up, where both just aren't feeling it and was done in a respectful way, there could be a chance to remain friends... But even those times it doesn't always sustain.. A new partner might not be comfortable with a friendship with an ex and then where should your loyalty lie? with someone who does love you and want to spend their life with you or an ex? If I was friends with an ex and I know it bothered my current partner, his feelings would matter more..
They wanted to marry me and I was ready. I didn't want pity marriage. I wanted to be worthy of the name Husband.
Which is why we broke up and they got married after the break up but before they did, there was no communication after.
