Is it weird to actually be friends with my exes?

Anonymous
I’ve had two major, long-term relationships in my life so far, not counting my current girlfriend. I was open early on with her about the fact that I still talk to my exes and consider them friends, but she is still upset and thinks it means I am not over them.

Am I being unreasonable? I personally always felt that there was nothing wrong with staying friendly with exes (ie. texting, maybe occasionally meeting for a coffee or something, etc.) if both parties don’t hate each other after breaking up. I don’t think it means we’re not over each other just because we chat sometimes. I know that I would not mind if my girlfriend was like that with her ex.

I’m wondering now though whether maybe my ideas on this are unusual and I just have the wrong expectations. Thoughts on this?
