Is It Ever OK To Be Friends With Your Ex?


I can't be friends with someone I love and still care for. Even though the relationship doesn't work out and the two of you aren't meant to be, caring about that person, loving them doesn't just go away. Being friends comes after healing. Tried it, I had to stop talking and being friends all together. Someone will start dating and have a new relationship. Old feelings will get in the way. So in my opinion it can work only if two people no longer have feelings.

 Let’s just be friends definitely don’t mean this: Let's have a platonic friendship in which we ignore the feelings we once had for each other and even those we still have. I'll talk casually to you about the girls I'm dating because the fact we're just friends means it won't hurt you that I've moved on so quickly.

When a woman says to an ex let's just be friends straight after a break up, she usually means:
I'm not ready to let go

When a guy says let's just be friends straight after a break up he means:

1. I'm over the relationship but let's keep having sex without commitment.

2. I don't want to be in a relationship with you but being just friends might soften the blow of separating.

3. I'm on the fence about our relationship, but I'm too much of a coward to break it off with you completely even though I know nothing healthy can come from staying in touch.


4. It really means he wants to keep u around until he finds something better or what he thinks is better. Some have that grass is greener syndrome.
