Seriously I don't think I know one girl who still doesn't talk to one of her ex's. I'm not talking about being acquaintances. I'm talking about they hang out occasionally and text on a daily basis.
What's even scarier is when ever I've confronted people about this or had discussions with my peers about the issue, most girls don't think its a problem?
I never seem to see guys do this. Once they break up with a girl, they just cut off contact unless she contacts him first.
Why do so many girls do this? How is this ever a good idea? And are there any girls left who don't have a ex they text on a daily basis?
Most Helpful Girl
I wouldn't say I'm friends with any of my ex-boyfriends. One of them is married now and we're friends on Facebook but never talk. The other one sends me an email a couple of times a year which usually results in some petty argument. Another one completely ignored me after we broke up and aside from a curt email a year later I've not heard from him. The most recent one, we were friends for almost a year after the break-up, but now that doesn't seem to work anymore and I guess we won't be in touch ever again.
I don't have anything against being friends with an ex per se, but it does seem to be hard for me. I don't think you can be friends right after a break-up. Or I can't anyway. There's just too many hurt feelings, too many arguments, and it keeps at least one of you from moving on. In theory, I think it would be nice to be able to be civil with people you dated once.
Although I have to disagree that guys never are friends with their ex-girlfriends. On the whole, all of the guys I've ever dated were on much better terms with their ex-girlfriends than I was with mine.0
