I was in my first serious relationship, where we were both really in love with each other and then after a couple of years it just fell apart. How come after being so in love and having so much respect for one another, neither of us can seem to be 'friends.'

Because once you move beyond the state of "friendship" and see each other in a different light, with physical and emotional attraction, every time you see that person it will be reopening wounds. It will remind you of what you miss (walks on the beach, tender kisses, etc) and it is hard to deal with the fact that you will not be experiencing them anymore. Once you cross the threshold from friendship to more, it is difficult to go back. Your heart will always want more and want it to be "like it was" when you were in love. Unless you fall in love with someone else and your heart is able to move on, it will probably be difficult to be "just friends" with that person.0
