Oh god no. Haha. They all loathe me. My most recent ex keeps trying to get my roommate and myself fired at work, because she hates him and he moved into my apt as a roommate after I left her. I have a daughter with a different ex and her family said if I ever try to visit, then they'll cripple or kill me. So I tend to stay away from that part of town. Lol. So no...no friends with ex's here.

I say from personal experience that it only works out well when you both were friends before dating, breakup on mutual terms, the person who wanted to break up done decides to want to keep being friends and keep talking.

Totally read this as "staying with your friend's ex" and it was a way better topic.

Too awkward for me.. ;w; All the guys I've dated broke up with me, or I did with them, and it's just too awkward to try and mend the relationship. This one guy still likes me and wants me to break up with my current boyfriend and I'm like... No.

You can never be friends with an ex. A friend is someone whom you've never had romantic feelings for or sexual feelings for. Once you have kissed a person, friendship can no longer be what friendship means. The only reason to ever be friends with an ex is possibly if you have a kid with them but still don't want to be together romantically. It never works out and you start gaining feelings for them again. Finally, I will conclude this by saying, leave exes in the past. They are gone for a reason, no need to keep putting them where you are now. It's too awkward and too much drama in the long run.

Its more than possible, Im still friends with my ex (2 years after we broke up from a 3 year relationship). Thing is that if you broke up because you were cheated on etc then no, its never going to happen. If you just grew apart then its more than possible, you just have tot pretty much cut all communication for like a month to move on enough before you can talk to eachother as friends rather than lovers...

That said, its something for a more mature relationship. If its like 'k were dating for 2 weeks i luvs you' at 16 or whatever dont expect much

You can potentially stay friends with your ex yet the merits of the friendship are weak and past troubles are likely to have a negative influence. Clearly there is a reason as to why a given couple broke up in the first place, be careful when choosing whether to continue with a friendship.

Not me. We usually don't keep in contact with each other. Except for my recent ex. He doesn't take no for an answer. Always calling and sending me pictures of himself. Not the kind of person I want as a friend or to be around.

staying friends with an ex is okei...
but i dont think it can be done right after the break up..
give yourself time to heal and move on...

If you mean awkwardly pretending things are normal for a few weeks before we drift and never speak to each other again.. sure, let's just be friends.

Hah, that sounds about right. But actually, I'm friends with quite a few of my exes. One I would even consider to be a best friend. It doesn't magically happen though. We usually took a year, or more, to cool off and see other people, before somehow running into one another again. If we had enough in common to sustain a relationship, then I am more than likely friends with them now. Those that I didn't, well, we haven't spoken since then for obvious reasons.
