Not true, friends can betray you, whereas you will always know where enemies stand

Nope, terrible idea. It's cruel on them as well as yourself.

Not the greatest way to live at least in my opinion. If you can't trust your friends you have issues and if your friends are not trust worthy they have issues. Yes people may betray you and unless they try their hardest to make it up to you they never should have been your friend to begin with. An enemy wont have any problems causing you harm in some way...I personally would rather be betrayed than make an enemy. I like to sleep at night.

Staying in a relationship until you just absolutely can't stand each other - I don't think I can be friends with my exes..
It's never been a mutual break up with me anyways.

I'm friends with my ex, we had a nice break up, I would wish that for everyone if it was possible

True. My experience has shown me it depends on what you and that person were like before dating, (were you friends or strangers?) and each person's personal level of maturity.

So far I've got a 50/50 result with my ex's. Half I'm friends with and the other half don't even acknowledge I even exist.

Far too many "strangers" get sentimental for some reason. The mind just makes up these scenarios not to be fucked with

Depends on how bad the breakup or the relationship was..
I'm pretty cool with most of my ex's, but I know that some of them still hold ancient grudges and feelings.

It gets a little awkward with a few of them, but I've had a lot of relationships that ended peacefully with "We can still be friends" and such. Now, I'm not like BEST friends with my ex's of course, but some of them are still my good friends now.

However, there are those that I avoid.. it's like we have dual restraining orders on each other haha.

Happens on occasion, it has been more common to lose contact after a few weeks/months though.

Unless it was like a mutual break up where nothing was ever serious for EITHER party, then I don't think it's a good idea.

I kind of hold a grudge against exes, because I was in a relationship where my significant other became real good friends with their ex. It made me feel uncomfortable how much they spent time together. That person I dated really had a thing for being real buddy buddy with their exes and it got on my nerve.

With one of my ex's the relationship was so long ago I no longer have any feelings regarding it, so we're on friendly terms again. We don't hang out regularly but every so often we meet up and catch up. If things go south with the girl I'm with now I'll probably keep her out of my life for a while until I'm feeling better about it.

I still had feelings for her, so there was no way I could become friends with her. She ditched me for someone else, but I couldn't get rid of what I felt. So I cut all ties with her - Facebook, people, phone, email - the whole bit.
