It's possible to remain friends, but difficult.
There are times I'd like to just move on, but we were good friends before we dated and have managed to somehow remain good friends after, so we'd probably end up hurting each other more to suddenly drop the friendship, unless we are both moving on and going our separate ways anyway.

Yep, communication wouldn't be constant though.

I'd want nothing more than to be friends with some of my exes but it's not my fault that ties get cut.

I always put in effort to be considerate and still friendly. I take the initiative to talk because they tell me they want that, too. But, it all ends the same way. They don't seem responsive and never talk to me if I don't talk to them first. I get fed up after a month or two and stop initiating, they never talk to me again, and BOOM.

I never understood why people say they want to keep talking and being friends, yet never follow through. If I say I want to, I want to. I don't beat around the bush with people's feelings. So needlessly complicated.

It's awesome if you can make it work out with your exes. But unfortunately, it doesn't work out most of the time.

My experience has been either there a lot of distance, so it just makes things awkward anyways, or one side tries to just pick fights and then makes it end badly.

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.


you just tell my answer! I've tried, but I couldn't keep being friend with her too much memories and it just hurt. We start to ignore and I start to avoid her. It's better to leave it in the past.

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 .____________.




AGREED.

Never lol, I guess it comes down to me because I never start a relationship unless I see a future in it.
And with that I put a lot of effort into my relationships,

My last ex and I were going for about 7 months before we left on very bad terms.

Needless to say after not talking for a year and a half, the first time she saw me at our community college she dropped her phone at the sight of me, (i shit you not her brother showed me what she wrote on her blog)
It's was a very awkward moment, I almost felt bad.

But I'm 17 months into my current relationship!

I found it almost impossible. Have tried but it never lasts.

It can be possible, but most of the time it doesn't work out.

It depends on how it ended. Obviously if the reason you broke up was over a bad situation, then saying you would rather just be friends would lying to yourself. Deep down inside, you'd probably would have no intention of wanting to talk to them again.

Tried it with my ex, then she found out that ive been making fun of our sex life with my friends and her little kinks. now she hates my guts... i think she's over reacting though.
