    My ex-girlfriend who I dated for about a year ago, ending near the end of 2008 after she went...

    off to school, who has been my best friend for longer than that, is moving back into town, and I'm debating about asking her to be my roommate. Bad idea?

    Short Answer- Yes- it has potential to blow up in your face or at some point shit would hit a fan.

    Then again if you two were best friends before you got together, maybe it could work. Did it end amicably, was it mutual? Does she want you back? Do you want her back?

    If you move in together, there must be ground rules and lines drawn. If you want to get back with her, I'd suggest not moving in. I ask all these questions so you can be honest with yourself concerning your motives for wanting to ask her to be your roommate.

    Why not rekindle the friendship aspect first, work on that and if all goes well perhaps in the future she could be your roomy. For now I'd suggest against living with an ex.

    That depends on you though.

    Yes, bad idea. Stay friends with her when she moves back into town, but don't ask her to move in. You were together for an entire year as lovers in a relationship, it could be extremely painful for either yourself or for her if there are other people either of you decide to date while you're living together. Especially if either one of you start having new lovers sleep over! She could be so badly hurt that you may lose your friendship with her all together, don't take the risk!
