CAN EX-LOVERS BECOME BEST FRIENDS?

Reassuring words for those who ask if they can remain Best Friends with their ex-Lovers.

 

There is one. and only one, reason... as if one needed any more than one... for it not being possible to be the best friend, or even casual friend of one whom one has loved. 

The function of a friend…(and for the rest of this preachy little document, read “friend” for “friend” and “best friend”)  or should I say, one of the functions of a friend is to be there (How I loathe that turn of phrase) for his/her friend

 

A friend is there to listen when one is pissed off with life and nothing seems to matter anymore.  For example:

 

when the kids have not only smoked marijuana, but have set up a business dealing in it that is so successful that it would make Richard Branson jealous;

when his/her wife/husband is shagging the Swedish au pair and even the Vicar can’t be persuaded to help;

when his/her wife/husband is shagging the Vicar and even the Swedish au pair can’t be persuaded to help; 

when his/her lover has developed a really nasty social disease and he/she has noticed a very unpleasant sore on her/his (fill in the location as you see fit);

when her once Rugby (or Gridiron) playing lover has started wearing her best frocks and hanging around in gay bars;

when his usually domesticated and sweet girlfriend has joined the Isleworth Chapter of Hell’s Angels and is having a very intimate relationship with Sharon from the cake shop….

and so on.    All the permutations of modern living.

So what are friends for? That's easy.

That’s what friends are for… to turn to and ask for advice. How could you go to an ex lover and tell them all the above; or at least some of it, and hope to gain his/her whole and undivided (if non judgemental) attention?

One can step in and offer a bit of friendly advice; pat one’s friend on the back or knee (whichever seems more appropriate) and then having done the friendship bit, wander off into the sunset; to do more selfish, if hedonistic things, such as mowing the lawn or worming the cat.

But not if one has been a lover. If Lover Mk I hears that Lover Mk II is soiling the marital couch with infidelities or whatever, Lover Mk I wouldn’t be too severely criticised if he/she were to gloat. Well, it’s natural, isn’t it? Or to use a colloquialism; “Innit?”

I mean. If my Ex were to come to me and say that the latest piece of filth he/she had picked up had been shagging half Norbury-sur-Mer till their ears squeaked, I know I am the person most noted for my compassion and understanding, but I would most probably say something along the lines of, “You chose him/her, Sweetheart; you get on with it!” and most probably finish off my little bit of friendly counselling with a “Now, under the circumstances, I suppose a shag’s out of the question?”

Clytemnestra wearing a lot of Agamemnon on her dress. Now I wouldn't mess with this Lady... No way!
Clytemnestra wearing a lot of Agamemnon on her dress. Now I wouldn't mess with this Lady... No way!

Sorry mate.  Rule one applies.  You can’t be best friends with someone you’ve played horizontal tennis with.  Our prisons are bulging with people who think you can.  Stalkers are stalkers, and all these things are just as unsavoury.  Look at Clytemnestra and Agamemnon; look at Lucrezia Borgia and the Sforza and D’Este blokes; look at Mrs Philips down your road at number 14.  They’re all the same.  When the old man has fulfilled his usefulness and ceased to be Numero Uno...

 

Does he take up living in the spare room? 

Does he become a figure of importance and/or respect in the once happy home? 

No, he is more likely to end up under the patio in the back garden; or (more or less unwillingly) or perhaps end up donating most, or all, of his body parts to the pig slop in the local pig farm.

Watch it mate; I think the party's over.
Watch it mate; I think the party's over.

Just a warning. Ex lovers can’t be friends.

Think of the female spider. Post coitus… Wham! Dinner.

Not friends. One eater… one pudding.

hi..nice hub.

but...it depends. if you were bestfriends before you even became lovers, then even if you did not end up together, then you can still be the best of friends.after all, your foundation is friendship.it would be a waste if you sacrifice it just because your intimate relations did not work.

Hi! And thank you for the "Nice hub". The next time I see a Black Widow spider, I'll ask how it was for her. I don't think I'll get the chance to ask her husband.

It's obvious then, don't put your friendship at risk. Thanks for dropping in; feel welcome any time.

You make a strong case, my friend. I would say only that a person doesn't necessarily tell their best friend everything anyway, so to withhold a bit of information here and there is nothing. So you might have your best friend, who is an former lover, and friend A, who is your buddy that you talk about your sexual conquests with, for example, how on a drunken night I shagged all the old broads at a certain upscale retirement facility in the charming-if fictional-Norbury-sur-Mer.

As for me, I'd rather shag the Swedish Au Pair than the Vicar! Ha!

So Christoph says.. unless the Swedish Au Pair is named Ivar! Anyhoooo... it's always good to de-worm the cat. Forget donating body parts to the local pig farmer. It's all just a tad to distasteful.. and not fair to the pigs. Now then.. if I were an ex-lover.. ok so I am/have been.. not sure I want the pesky details of the formers newly former/current/future relationships. I have enuf of my own thank you very much. Now then.. where oh where is the next Mr. Next?!

From what I've heard, Candie, they are forming an orderly queue at your front door, as week speak. Make sure that all their credentials are up to par (That is not a euphemism, by the way) and that there is plenty of accommodation for their large, chauffeur driven cars, BMW Sports and Harley Davidsons.

If you need any secretarial assistance, just call on me.

Until then, you'll have to do with the Swedish au pair and his twin brother (Sven and Sten).

I think the time has come to move on. If her parents don't like you, and she won't answer the phone when you call, there's little point in continuing. You wouldn't want her mother's blood on your hands, would you? Even if she did it herself. Bit of a dramatic family are they? Stay away from them... they don't sound too healthy.

I always like think that ex-lovers can become best friends even though my past experiences have told me otherwise. Why can't people just get over with breakups quickly? What is there to hate or dislike? Have they forgot the three words that were said every now and then? Or did they really mean it?

One eater ..... one pudding - Nice!

Ian, as you can see, I have started my journey through your work with a hub you characterized as 'serious',,, Well, I can say that I'm not sure if I agree with you. In my opinion, if two people are both mature adults, they should be able to be friends after being romantically involved with each other. However, this is theoretical only, and practice says otherwise. As you said, just ask the spiders, right?

A nice collection of thoughts, and I love the examples you wrote at the beginning of the hub :)

Twilight...

I like to think that if my ex came to me with a problem involving her and the "latest" paramour, that I would offer the best snark-free advice I could.

I also like to think that I will see the ACTUAL Easter bunny tomorrow...I'm known for my snarkyness at times...

This is wonderful and I will be sharing it and passing it around like a "fish" in prison.

I loved your point of view - especially because I agree!

I ran into my ex-husband a while back...he wanted to be "friendly" and meet up for lunch - what a great guy! - so he could give me some things of mine he had saved for 15 years...ha! (some really good photographs of mine) I did meet up with him (but I brought my best girlfriend - and oh! He had to run off, couldn't stay for lunch after all:((( wah! I do not think he had any interest in being my friend! Lol. Do you? He's never called me again to see how I'm doing? Haha

You just can't unring a bell.....!


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 4 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Thomas, if you do find that little rascal with his fluffy tail and his cute little ears, remember what happened to the bunny in the film, 'Fatal Attraction'.

I don't know if you see yourself as more of a Glen Close character or you would prefer to be a sort of Michael Douglas, but remember rabbit taste really nice when sautéed with fresh carrots and juniper berries.

Thanks for the visit, and the comment,

Ian


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 4 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Realhousewife, I love that expression "You just can't unring a bell.....!"

I've not heard it before, but it's perfect.

When you said that you "ran into my ex-husband a while back", maybe you should have been driving a really powerful car. Those things can do some damage!

I think he most probably wanted to come the "Let's be friends" rubbish but when he saw your girlfriend, he realised she and you would know what a waste of space he is (if he is) and couldn't cope with the combined intelligence and memory banks of two, not only one, woman.

You know as well as I (and I'm a man) that women have the edge when it comes to intelligence, and seeing through a pile of crap.

Hope you're happier without him.

Thanks for the visit.

Ian,

If history is any indication, I would be the Michael Douglas character. I'm always charging into battle after my little captain with little regard to what's over the hill. You are correct...rabbit is tasty...alas...I only found the chocolate variety...also very tasty.

Thomas


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 4 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Thomas, I'm laughing like a crocodile of naughty school girls at the pictures your pen created.

I have a picture (and I'll most probably have it all day) of you and Little Captain charging into the battle; sometime with you in the lead; sometimes with him forging ahead enthusiastically; sometimes the pair of you walking along a long dusty road in a late summer evening, side by side, shoulder to shoulder, forging on to greater things; new conquests.

Oh dear, that brought a tear to my eye, figuratively speaking.

Ha ha!

Ian,

Oh Christ...(Laughing!)

Now your pen has painted a picture that has kept me laughing since I read it.

So...I'm picturing (in the pull, push, and surge of battle)

...the occasional stumble in which the regimental colors are in danger of dishonor...heroic measures are taken...truly...very stirring!

Thank you for the laugh my friend!

Ian,

So from your profile page it would appear that you went and published a book?? Outstanding and congratulations!! How did you do it? Self-published? Another publishing option? Was it difficult? Regardless, of course, congrats my friend...that is awesome!

(I'll be all over it if I get a kindle for my birthday)

It was very nice to see you today my friend and it looks like we "stepped into it" vis-a-vie that political hub. lol...I will be very happy when the election is over and President Obama is safely ensconced for another four years.

Take care!

PS...The State of Confusion IS Arizona.


Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 4 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K. Author

Thomas, you are so right.

I ploughed through all of that bitter and spiteful garbage, and suddenly realised that I was not up to returning like for like. I am not a political person, but I am horrified when i hear here from expatriates, that so many Americans just do not know that there is a world out there.

OK, so I may not be so clever with words, and I am in awe of your writing skills (I mean that), so why did I "step into it"?

I really can see now, why I have only popped in and out of HP for the last six months, and not written anything since late January.

I feel as if it is stifling and somewhat incestuous.

Back to the publishing. I published through Smashwords and it was a piece of cake, and then transferred it to Amazon. I had made so many typographical errors that I was mortified (almost) but the editing process with KDP (Amazon) was a piece of cake also (We have quite a master bakers and confectioners' goin on here).

Thomas, Smashwords is absolutely free and, although the instructions are somewhat long-winded (72 pages) it would be amazing if someone like you, who really has a lot to say and does so elegantly and eloquently could publish.

Take care, you too

Ian

I' not bad... It's Christmas Eve for us today, and tomorrow is Christmas, so we have to wait for the holiday spirit a little bit longer than most people :) I'm not big on religious holidays, but I like the fact that they often bring out a much needed dose of serenity and peace in people...

Are you feeling better?

Still as sick as an old man with a bad cold.

I also don't worry so much about the religious aspect of these holidays, but although I am a Muslim, I was brought up a Christian and love the traditions.

I am very, very worried though... I haven't written more than a few words for ages. I just can't get into writing mode again.

Happy Christmas.

I don't think you should be worried at all, my friend... Just relax and don't think about it - it will come back sooner or later. I found that there is no point in making yourself write when the writing mode is stubbornly set to off :)

Try writing down some of the ideas that come to you, and you will expand them at a later time, when the mode is turned on again.

Hello, my dear friend.

How lovely to hear from you.

I'm doing well, but not writing at all. I haven't written for myself and certainly not for HubPages, except for that little bit on nonsense in January.

I am reading quite a lot and am enjoying reading GONE WITH THE WIND as a result of reading Nellieanna's excellent hub on the characters in the film. But Oh, how I find myself succumbing to the 'Pro Slavery propaganda' of Margaret Mitchell which oozes out of every page.

I read LIFE OF PI recently and loved it... loved the film also.

joy 3 years ago

An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is Micheal WEinrich i live in Australia,and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited. igespiritual.worldhome@yahoo.co.uk So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {5}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website igespiritual.worldhome@yahoo.co.uk if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Voodoo for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again. igespiritual.worldhome@yahoo.co.uk Thanks...

I just saw that you left a comment five months ago and that I, Miserable Old bugger, didn't reply.

Sowwy! (Me, in an attempt to appear cute - as if!)

How are you, my dear, talented friend?

Snakeslane,

Curiouser and curiouser! Did you notice that Joy, Cassandra and Sarah all employ the same form of sentence construction?

Perhaps they went to the same skool.

You are sharp!

That (previous comment of mine) was not grammatically correct, but I'm claiming poetic license!

Or perhaps you could correct me dear editor...

You do have that talent, I assure you.

Perhaps my Muse has crossed the Atlantic (or whatever) and gone to live Chez you. Tell her to come back. You don't need her... I do!

I haven't seen that lazy madame for ages. I haven't written a thing for weeks and weeks and weeks.

If you look none too carefully at what I write, you will realise that I am the master of typographical errors. I type with the index finger of my left hand and the thumb and index finger of my right.

It takes a hell of a lot of time to build up that number of typos, I can assure you.
