How many of you stayed friends with your ex? Do you think its a good thing to be friends with an ex after the breakup?

ive done that with many of my exs and only one is still my friend.
there is a rare chance if you two can still be friends, the only way you two can still be friends is if you can deal with being exs and have no lingering feelings.

No unless you were good long-time friends before dating it's a really bad idea, or if both people mutually did not want to date any more. If one party did not want to break up, they'll always be too hopeful of getting back together. It just ends up being hurtful, especially if they start to see other people while you're being friend zoned. If the relationship is truly over, it's so much better to just cut ties.

Yeah that is true most ppl might not handle seeing there ex with someone else dating mostly if that was the person they ended up falling in love with. It also depends like you said if they started off friends 1st it could work.

Hard to do but I have one ex girlfriend who's still one of my friends.
We don't talk much now though. But we're in good terms now

You can try, most of the time it gets awkward.

Hell no.

And I say this because it never works. Too many bitter memories and emotions. They're called exes for a reason. You either weren't compatible or something just didn't click, so why even attempt to form a friendship? Some people stay friends with their exes because whether they want to admit it or not, they haven't moved on, selfishly clinging to dead emotions.

My ex wanted to be friends, until I told him it wouldn't be appropriate and that what we had is over and will never continue. Some things are just better left in the past.

A lot of it has to do with concept. Just because your romantically involved doesn't imply ownership. Just because you broke up doesn't mean the whole relationship experience was bad. People tend to focus on the bad stuff and forget about the good stuff

I NEVER become friends with my ex's, no no.. *shakes head* it's too awkward.
If the relationship didn't work, friendship won't either.

I tried once it didn't work out and we tried like 3 times and each time we ended up even angrier with each other. It's hard because there are certain things you can't say to each other like she would always get upset with new guys she was dating and would go to me "Why can't I find a good guy." I would always get a little upset with that one plus it doesn't help if the other person is completely over but your still hanging on to that string of hope that maybe you'll get back together. But I guess it depends on the couple like with me i was infatuated with my ex but she wasn't all that interested in me. It taught me a lot like the difference between infatuation and love also never try to date a girl who doesn't like anime believe it or not that was a big issue I would watch stupid shit like bad girls club with her but if i was watching anime she wouldn't even stay in the same room.

I've tried... few times.... never again.
Posted 12/19/12
Nope. Not even, bro.
Ex List [and reason why we don't talk]

  1. J. Du [jerk broke up with me for his ex!
  2. Octavio [cheated on me after 3 months, never quite got over me, denies the cheating thing at times, tried to cheat on his now-current gf with me and get me to cheat on my bf with him [[which i never did]] and oh god, he's like stalking me now -__-]
  3. Carlos [we never talked/went on dates. well, we talk now, so he doesn't count. just casually. never mentioning the fact we dated for a month. we work together.]
  4. Markus is the only nonjerk on this list and we're still good friends ^.^


It's just so awkward .____________.
