I've read a lot of questions along the lines of "Why do guys want to stay friends with exes after a break-up" or "Why doesn't he want me to move on even though he has" and the list goes on and on. Most of the answers have been "you're just a back-up plan". My question is why do guys keep girls around as back-up plans? Is it that as much as guys want to they can't move on or that they don't want to admit their hurt feelings?

I broke up with my girlfriend to pursue another girl and she was pretty devastated by what I did.. I asked if we could still be friends, but she said maybe in a couple months. At first I didn't feel anything, but now I sit in my room feeling super lonely wishing I had someone to talk on the phone with or fall asleep with... So I guess just having her as a friend helps us cope with our loss so it doesn't feel like they've completely left our lives and I do still miss her, but I know it's the company I miss.0
